Your leaders are the primary drivers of your organization’s success. We help them fulfill their potential through a variety of proven methods.
These customizable workshops are designed to help your leaders be the best they can be.
Solving Problems with Effective Conversations
Every leader must be able to have effective conversations. An organization’s success depends on leaders being able to speak up and not sit silent when there are problems. Companies often have artificial harmony, at the cost of not solving their problems.
Here are some of the topics we will discuss in this workshop:
- What gets in the way of employees speaking up?
- Does your company’s culture foster or prevent conflict?
- What are the reasons conversations go badly?
- What is the process of having an effective conversation?
Learning from Feedback
Leaders need to learn how to provide great feedback, but they also need to learn how to accept feedback. Leaders cannot fulfill their potential without looking for and considering feedback about their behavior.
Here are three things we will focus on during the workshop:
- Why is feedback so difficult for us to hear?
- Is it possible to try and understand feedback before you automatically dismiss it as wrong?
- Why do I often have the same conversation over and over again with some people and nothing changes?
Making Good Decisions
Is there a way to up the odds that you will make good decisions? Yes, there is. Experience shows that if you follow a decision-making process your decisions will far more likely have the desired outcome.
Here are three questions we will focus on during the workshop:
- Why do smart people make bad decisions?
- What is the difference between a mistake and a bad decision?
- What process can be used to make better decisions? Will this just slow me down?
Coaching for Improved Performance
Experience has shown that one difficult employee can have a profound effect on your other employees. Negative behavior begets negative behavior. Why do leaders put up with difficult employees?
Here are three things we will focus on during this workshop:
- How do you set behavioral standards?
- How do you deal with employees who are not living those behavioral standards?
- Is it possible to bring up concerns without being negative? Is that not a contradiction?
Opportunities to Consider Leadership Coaching
Leader transitions from a staff to a leadership role
One of the most difficult transitions for a leader is moving from a staff to a leader role. We can partner with the leader to help them figure out how to handle such thorny issues as: How do I handle staff that used to be my friends and now report to me? How do I prioritize all the challenges I am facing? How do I learn all the new skills I need to be successful?
Leader has an underperforming staff member
We partner with the leader to develop a plan to improve the employee's behavior, inspiring them to become a more vital part of the team.
Two leaders are at odds
It is not unusual for leaders to have two leaders reporting to them who do not work well together. This has profound effects on the team. We can partner with all the leaders involved to explore how to fix the problem.
Leader needs to make an important presentation
We have the experience to coach leaders to make inspiring and engaging presentations.
Leader asks for a coach
It’s more common now for a leader to ask for a coach, particularly when they transition into a new leadership role. We can partner with the leader to help them fulfill greater potential.
