Each day, leaders should reflect and answer: “What is my purpose? What is my impact? Am I building the legacy I desire?” In today’s
global community, leaders need to be able to distinguish between the “art and science” of leadership while deliberately communicating
their vision so that they successfully propel their organization into the future. Pointing fingers does not work…but
influencing people towards your vision as a leader does. Leaders cannot hide. They cannot remain in the shadows. Leaders need
to stand up and stand for something. Leaders need to find their voice.
Participants will learn how to create their unique “V-O-I-C-E” by
Change is constant. You cannot hide from it. You cannot run from it. And the most successful organizations are those that learn
to adapt to change and thrive from it. Change is not something that should be managed, it is something that should be led.
How many times have we heard that “change is the new normal?” More than ever before, organizations need to evolve, innovate
and adapt to remain competitive and chart a productive vision for the future. And companies are depending on their leaders
to support and successfully lead all stages of the forward momentum of change. This workshop will define change and develop
positive and creative leaders that will motivate their teams through change and the opportunities that come with it.
Participants will learn how to
Leaders need to embrace such changes and model this adaptability for all the employees. When an organization and individuals really
understand what is changing and identify their role within that change, then people can align alongside change rather than
As a leader, you may have the “best of intent” but if you do not align your intentions with clear and deliberate outcomes, you
will remain firmly marooned on “Intention Island.” “I had the best of intention…” becomes the excuse for no action or
results. Leaders need to combine influence with motivation. Influence with courage. And influence with outcomes. Get rid of
obstacles in the way of top performance and help your team and organization become unstuck and move forward.
Participants will learn and practice
Effective teamwork doesn’t happen by accident, you need to have team leaders who know how to purposely step out of their Comfort
Zone and use conflict to move the team forward. There may be no “I” in team but in any successful team, there needs to be trust,
engagement, personal accountability and consistent momentum. This session will introduce leaders how to be more confident in
the creation of a stellar team and understand how the demonstration of courageous interpersonal skills are critical to successfully
navigate the myriad of human dynamics that are sure to arise.
Participants will learn how to
Truly successful leaders are distinguished by a high degree of Emotional Intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation,
motivation, empathy, and social skills. These qualities may sound “soft” and un-businesslike, but there are direct ties between
emotional intelligence and measurable business results. The combination of the traditional leadership qualities and a high
degree of emotional intelligence is critical for the success of your leadership team and your organization.
Leaders are aware that managing and mentoring their staff can be similar to coaching a sports team. You have to combine inspiration with motivation. Encourage cooperation while producing stellar results. Get rid of obstacles in the way of top performance. And help employees become unstuck and move forward. But how do you practice all of this within a corporate environment? This workshop will introduce leaders to the right attitudes and critical skills to become valuable coaches for their team and even themselves. They will learn how to identify and ignite the potential in others so the average employee can become an exceptional star.
