WORKSHOPS

Get Out of Your Own Way and Achieve Your Leadership Potential

If you feel that if you want anything done right, you need to do it yourself, this can cause you to get stuck where you are in your career or business because you can’t get out of your own way and be the leader you want to be.

This workshop will help you to

  • Step back and evaluate your situation
  • Discover what’s creating the bottleneck in your career or business.
  • Overcome what’s holding you back
  • Develop a plan and the actions and tools that you need to break through the barriers
  • Breakthrough to the next level and get forward momentum in your career or business

Imagine how you will feel when you’re in control of your life again and are moving forward?  Think about how you will feel when you’re in control of where you are going and feeling successful and strong again

Transitioning from Traditional Management to Leadership

This interactive and experiential workshop is designed to help participants become effective leaders. To survive — and thrive — in the 21st century, companies must ensure that their leaders are prepared and empowered to effectively lead a different and diverse workforce and to hire, engage and retain employees who are prepared with 21st century skills. Geared toward executives and middle-level managers at small, medium and large organizations, the workshop draws on the extensive experience of both presenters as coaches and business leaders in the corporate and nonprofit sectors.

Finding a Pathway to a Successful Career and Life

Are you at a crossroads in your life?

  • Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed because of the rapidly changing pace of life and business?
  • Do you wish that you could get a handle on what’s going on or what you should do next?

Finding one’s way has been a theme through the ages — philosophers, poets, writers and spiritual leaders all have written or spoken about defining your “best self.” In this workshop, you will come away with tools you can use now or in the future, a better understanding of your personality type, and a plan that consolidates the information gathered from the various exercises into a personalized plan aimed at achieving the success you desire.

The Coach Approach to Managing Your Team: A 21st Century Skill for Success

If your employees are disengaged and this is causing your organization to lose money, you’re not alone.

A recent Gallop poll found that “almost 90% of workers were either not engaged” with or “actively disengaged” from their jobs.

JLL, a real estate service firm, did a study entitled “Fully Engaged” and found that an employee who has no sense of purpose in the workplace, causes up to $500 billion in lost revenue in the U.S. each year.  Firms that embrace employee engagement…can be more profitable. 

This interactive, experiential workshop draws on the extensive experience of both presenters as coaches and business women in the corporate and non-profit sectors.  These leaders enabled their teams to achieve success for their respective organizations and themselves. They will share this expertise with you so that you can begin to alter the structure of work in your organization and attain better business results for you and your company by enabling your team members to connect to a deeper sense of purpose in their work.

Through discussion and exercises, you will learn:

  • How to ask your employees the right questions so that they become involved in the process and buy into the solution
  • Define clear expectations and objectives for each of your team members
  • Learn to listen to your team members closely and then provide useful feedback to them
  • Help your team to set meaningful goals and the steps to achieve them
