Essentials in Leadership

Learn what it takes to be an effective leader in our 3-day class. The first day will concentrate on your own personal leadership model, which includes your values, roles and responsibilities. Prior to class, you will take our DiSC Workplace assessment, and your results will be explored so you gain knowledge and skills on how to build trust and communicate for success.

In day two, you will discover the importance of rapport, how to sharpen your listening skills, and ways to handle workplace conflict. On the last day, the secrets to bringing out the best in your employees will be discovered and you will gain skills to inspire performance. You will come away knowing how best to deliver positive feedback as well as feedback for improvement.

This course is geared for practical application. While solid leadership theory is built into the three days, the focus is on making what can be fuzzy concepts accessible and actionable. You will close out your three days knowing how to turn your awareness into action!

Personal Productivity

An essential element to being an effective leader is having high self-awareness. One area where self-awareness can be especially impactful is learning to lead yourself with productivity habits.

In this one-day class you will discover your time behaviors, or habits, and connect that learning to your values, roles and responsibilities. You will investigate three principles of productivity and explore how focusing can give you a competitive advantage. You will examine common productivity traps and then tie everything together by creating an action plan that is built from the right structures that work best for you.
