Leadership in the 21st Century
Much has been written on the topic of leadership in recent years. This session provides participants with the latest research on what works, what doesn’t and how it affects you. Topics include the latest leadership theories, practical tips for use and case studies of leaders who have the right idea.

Leader/Manager – Are You Both?
Effective leaders understand that at times they must manage. Likewise, effective managers understand that those who work for them also want an effective leader. Learn how you can be both a leader and a manager – and how to identify which skills are needed for which situations. Topics include a discussion of leadership and management, an in depth look at eight roles of an effective manager as well as the six roles of an effective leader.

Building Relationships & Finding your Network
Business Conversation always begins with a desired outcome. First, you’re selling yourself and second, your point of view. You need to connect immediately. One of the most important components of connecting with others is knowing and understanding how (the receiver) your audience consumes you, so that the asset and debit side of your presentation must be in balance to sustain interest. Your audience is either expanding or recoiling, so any mistake at this point in your presentation can cripple you. You need to stay fluid and flexible to what is in front of you. What’s at stake is the relationship.

The Meyers Briggs Type Indicator & Communications/Leadership
The MBTI® is the world’s most popular and impactful personality inventory. This session will use the MBTI® as a foundation from which to begin a discussion on effective communication and leadership. Each of us views the world from a different vantage point. This session will help participants see the world from one another’s perspective.

Emotional Intelligence & Self Awareness
A foundational concept of any leadership program, self-awareness is a necessary competency for effective leaders. This session uses emotional intelligence as a starting point as we venture into essential concepts of self-awareness and effective leadership. Self awareness is more than simply ‘knowing oneself’ – it is about having an acute awareness of the environments, people, tasks and activities that energize and excite all of us.

Creating a Culture of Continual Development
Like any skill or competency, leadership can be learned. In fact, research has shown that leadership is 70 percent learned. Good news! However, leadership takes practice. This session will help your organization develop a culture of continual development so, like a well trained athlete, employees are continually developing their skills and in the process, your organization.

Managing Personal Stress
Some level of stress can be positive. However, even among the most effective people, leaders and teams may derail at a rapid rate due to stress. This session will help you know the signs of personal and group stress and help participants develop a plan for managing difficult situations and using them for group development and learning.

Creative Problem Solving
We often approach the same old problems in the same old way. This session will help participants examine their personal, departmental or organizational challenges in a new way. By using several creative problem solving techniques, participants will have an opportunity to develop a new approach to solving problems.

Building Relationships Through Effective Communication
In all conversation, whether business or personal, we are designed to connect to others. In order to first, create the relationship through conversation, one must express a sincere concern for the other person. At this point you have not only generated the relationship but you have connected. By attaching yourself to them you have formed a bond and the relationship is now tied to a union. The cycle is now complete: create, connect, bond.

Motivating Others
Today, we have three generations working in the organizations, each with different needs, perspective and values. Motivating others can be a tall order. However, there are some core theories of motivation that are easily applied to the workplace. By examining current challenges through time tested approaches to motivation, we can begin to develop a plan to work through the motivation problems all organizations face.

Managing Conflict
Conflict is all around us. This session examines several approaches to conflict and helps participants understand the benefits and drawbacks of each. Like so many other managerial functions the manager’s ability to effectively approach conflict will determine success or failure.

Empowering and Delegating
When is it appropriate to empower others? What are the principles of effective delegation? This session examines the benefits and drawbacks of empowerment and delegation. This session uses Situational Leadership theory as a foundation for a discussion that will open your eyes to effective and ineffective approaches to empowering and delegation.

Building Effective Teams
Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni (The Five Dysfunctions of a Team), this session examines how individuals in organizations build effective teams. We will investigate several theories of effective teams and provides participants with concrete tools to begin the process of building effective teams.

Strategic Leadership/Strategic Communication
All leadership involves communication. Verbal and non-verbal communication can propel an individual to new heights or undermine their efforts. This session examines how communication assists and undermines what you are trying to accomplish. It is designed to help individuals better understand their strengths as a communicator and those behaviors that may hinder progress.

The Illusion of Effective Communication
Smart people miss the mark when they believe the only approach to an effective communicator is intellectual. They have the illusion that the communication process actually happened.  That’s elite externalism or the use of the head and you do this at your own peril. Only when one makes the internal transformation and begins the communications process at the heart level does one become affective, thereby, utilizing emotion and a caring attitude.

Accelerate your Development: Leadership Development “On the Fly”
Designed for middle managers, this session helps participants develop a leadership development system that can be conducted “on the fly.” In fact, it can be implemented by managers at any level of an organization. This approach develops leadership on the fly – day in and day out.

The Communications Boot Camp

Most communicators are guilty of not understanding how they are perceived, how their audience is moved and what makes the difference. This Boot Camp session deals with;

  • It’s not what you say, it’s how you heard
  • People not only have to hear what you say but feel what you say 
  • What comes out of your mouth is the reality of what’s in your heart.

The Emerging Leaders Retreat
New leaders in organizations face challenges that differ from those at other levels. For instance, they often must make the transition from working with colleagues to leading colleagues. This session is an introduction to management equivalent. It is designed to help the new leader better understand the role so they are successful in their new role.

Leading Large Scale Change Initiatives
In many ways, change is an art form. Leading an organization through change is not only a challenge; it is often a neglected and under-planned endeavor. This session will share several principles of change and help participants apply the concepts to current change initiatives.
