Leadership and Professional Development Workshops

Leading Mindfully

Now more than ever, leading mindfully matters. The challenge in doing so is we are living in an age of constant distractions. So often, we believe we can get more done if we switch to autopilot to get through the day. When we do this, opportunities are missed, and mistakes happen because we are disengaged from our lives. It feels counterintuitive but slowing down and being mindful and thereby intentional of our actions can help us see and hear what is really happening. Mindful leadership helps leaders strengthen their ability to connect to themselves and each other, as well as strengthen their ability to skillfully initiate change. This workshop will provide insights along with practical tips for those seeking to influence others toward positive outcomes by leading mindfully.

Leading with LOVE: Motivating and Connecting in the Now Normal

Leadership is all about building reciprocal relationships and commitments to each other. If your team is not successful, you won’t be either. It starts with you as the leader. A Gallup poll of more 1 million employed U.S. workers concluded that the No. 1 reason people quit their jobs is a leader. Seventy-five percent of workers who voluntarily left their jobs did so because of their bosses and not the position itself. However, leading today comes with challenges that many have never faced. How do you motivate and connect with a remote workforce? For many this is the now normal, therefore, it’s dependent on us as leaders to determine ways that we can effectively do so. This workshop will provide insights along with practical tips for successfully leading your team with LOVE (Listening Ear, Objective Mind, Versatile Attitude, Empathetic Heart) in the now normal.

Leading Change: How to Be a Successful Change Agent in Challenging Times
Rosalynn Carter said, “A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go – but ought to be.” Successful organizational change requires great leaders as they steer the transformation from a difficult journey into a smooth ride. Harvard Business Review identified five key competencies for change management: demonstrating flexibility and resilience; recognizing growth opportunities; striving for results; leading courageously; gaining buy-in. This workshop will provide tools and resources necessary to be an effective change agent in challenging times.


How to Avoid Being a Dysfunctional Leader    

Workplaces do not become dysfunctional by themselves. People make them that way. There probably is nothing more frustrating than working for a dysfunctional leader or being on a dysfunctional team. Both can hold groups back from reaching their full potential. This workshop will explore how to spot and avoid dysfunctional team leadership.
Note: The online Team Assessment included in this class would be an additional charge of $75 per participant.

Seven Habits of Effective Leaders

We have all known people that seem to accomplish anything. They seem to be able to get the best out of themselves and others. Do they know something we don’t? Maybe, the reality is that they are using some basic tools and making conscious decisions based on those tools that allow them to identify where they can take charge. In this class you will learn more about the 7 habits, leading from inside out, identifying the accuracy of our paradigms (assumptions) and how these principles tie to the basic competencies needed by a leader.

Motivating & Engaging Your Team
Motivating your employees requires more than just saying “nice job” occasionally and then moving on. It’s about leading by example, sharing the organization’s big picture, and getting to know your employees. You will learn how to provide strategic vision and discover why you need to motivate your employees in the first place. You will also be introduced to several motivational tools that will help you engage your team.



You Don’t Need a Title to be a Leader

This program provides insights into how each of us can be a leader in our daily lives and make a positive difference, whatever our title or position. Participants will understand that genuine leadership is not conferred by a title or limited to the executive suite. Rather, it is shown through our everyday actions and the way we influence the lives of those around us.


The Art of Giving and Receiving Feedback

One of the most important person-to-person communication skills is the ability to give and receive feedback effectively. It is also one of the most challenging. No amount of sophisticated technology can diminish the anxiety leaders and team members feel when faced with a feedback discussion. The good news is that feedback does not have to be painful. This workshop will provide leaders with knowledge on how to assert goal-oriented, detailed feedback for improved reception, how to handle difficult feedback situations, and how to receive and accept good and constructive feedback.


Masterful Mentoring for Organizations

Is your organization prepared for the exodus? Mentoring is one way that organizations can successfully transition employees through this change. Today, organizations are challenged to not only identify the “high potentials” for specific leadership positions, but also to retain them. For this reason and many others, mentoring is rapidly becoming recognized as a highly effective worldwide human resource development process. We can help your organization establish, administer, and evaluate an effective mentoring program.
