These workshops are for leaders who want to take their leadership to a new level. Our experienced facilitators offer new tools to leaders who need to meet the challenges of an ever-changing, faster moving and more diverse workforce. For example, we provide workshops to give participants tools to develop inclusive cultures, in particular, cultures that engage both genders and have effective cross-generational teams. Workshops can be followed up with individual or group executive coaching sessions to assure that new skills are practiced, applied and mastered. If you don’t see the exact topic you’re looking for, call us and ask what we can design to meet your needs.
Effective leaders know the reality of constant change and understand the need to embrace change in order to achieve results. Participants in this program will gain tools to understand the leader as a change agent and will gain skills to make change “stick.” Leaders at all levels will learn how to take responsibility for change in their sphere of influence using the tool of “Courageous Questions.”
All work places have power plays and “people problems.” This program introduces participants to the six stages of power and enables them to assess their own power stage. Participants will practice ways to use each stage of power effectively, to defuse power plays, avoid traps and to understand the political landscape of the internal workplace.
Members of one generation may judge members of the next. This workshop is for managers and members of multigenerational teams who want to move from judging to understanding and how to learn to appreciate and leverage differences. Participants will appreciate the differences in values, perspective and behaviors of Traditionals, Baby Boomers, Generation X’ers and Millennials, all the while gaining ideas on how to work with the differences that they have between them.
Most people have a general sense of gender differences. This program enables participants to make those differences the source of workplace synergies rather than friction. In this workshop, participants will be taught to understand the business case for leveraging feminine & masculine approaches, appreciate the deep roots of gender differences, examine and share how gender differences show up at work, and improve their ability to lead and work with both men and women.
Creativity is a skill and can be taught. In the 21st Century, business creativity will be the differentiator that enables superior bottom line results. Creativity enables leaders to generate multiple ideas and possibilities for moving forward. Participants will be asked to bring a work example that needs creative solutions and will learn techniques to think more productively while leaving with a variety of ideas for their issue and a new set of tools to help build a creative work environment.
Participants in this program will discover, articulate and establish action steps to align their work with their personal vision and mission. This enables them to bring more meaning and commitment into their business lives. Using a technique that has been successful in for-profit, non-profit and government organizations, participants will make their vision and mission real, substantive, and operational.
This is a facilitated team exercise to articulate the mission or purpose of the group, the core values that support the mission, and the vision for the organization. Being clear on shared values brings your team into alignment and simplifies decision making. Articulating the group’s mission, generates commitment and engagement all the while bringing meaning to the work. Agreeing on the vision for the team for the next 3-6 years brings direction, alignment and energy. With clarity around mission and vision, your team is prepared to build a sustainable action plan.
