The Programs are unique in their motivational quality, emphasizing the challenging of people’s habitual thinking while powerfully engaging their heart.

Leadership Communication Skills ~ Have you ever trained your management team on the art of influence? 
If not, why not? Influence is a survival skill for managers and leaders, yet it doesn’t come naturally to most. How can you expect anyone to manage people, complete projects, and meet budgets if they don’t know how to inspire others to follow them? Our alliance partner shows your key people how to master the Three Elements of Influential Communication to become persuasive leaders.

 Managing Me Programs ~  Helping busy managers manage heavy workloads and carve out more time for leadership (coaching, performance management, development, strategic planning, etc.)

 Personal Leadership Effectiveness ~ ….establish your brand.  All successful brands have something in common, whether we are speaking of products, people or organizations. They all have a clear, well defined identity; and everything they say and do consistently aligns with that identity. It is how they stand out and how others come to know and trust them.

 Positive, Power and Influence ~ To get things done in today’s organizations, we must positively influence others-direct reports, colleagues, managers, clients, and suppliers-both inside and outside the organization.  In addition, the factors influencing organizations change therefore flexibility in using different influence approaches is key.  Typical influence goals include gaining buy-in for one’s ideas, securing cooperation, attuning agendas, and sustaining action.

 Priority Map Workshop ~ Bridging the gap between strategic priorities, performance goals, and what we’re working on today. The Priority Map™ workshop (2-4 hours long) is a series of planning exercises, supported by a visible tool (the priority map) that many of my clients find extremely useful for clarifying/focusing/executing on performance goals & strategic priorities. It’s a great way to keep performance plans “alive” and help teams stay aligned. This learning is targeted toward managers and supervisors. It’s also appropriate for high potential individual contributors who have responsibility for various longer term performance objectives, priorities and projects.

 Time Management ~ Having Fun…Getting Things Done!  The best way to achieve time and activity management is to maximize your skills and enjoy the process. Everyday we need to make our personal contribution to success, how we plan to achieve it, how we take action and how it impacts us determines our overall ability to consistently perform at our best.

 Winning in a Cross Generational Workplace ~ In today’s multigenerational workforce, it has become increasingly important to understand the different workplace approaches for each generation. Acknowledging the historical context of each generation, and understanding generational perceptions, will provide a platform for stronger communication and more effective teamwork at your organization. The new blend of generations, race, gender and ethnicity has created a workforce that is more diverse than ever before. For the first time, we have four generations working side by side. This generational diversity creates challenges as well as a great potential for opportunity and growth. By learning to value the strengths and viewpoints of each of the four generations, organizations can create leading cross-generational teams.
