Do you simply want to invest in your team’s ongoing success and give everyone a little boost and chance to hone their skills? One of our highly-acclaimed facilitated workshops might be for you.

In addition to our “off the shelf” options, we specialize in creating custom workshops for our clients. Don’t see exactly what you’re looking for? Not a problem. We can probably create it for you.

Think, Speak & Act like a Leader
THINK like a Leader
How do you think about leadership? What’s your own style? How does your mindset help you? How does it hurt you? How do you think about your role as a team leader? What about your role as part of a management team?
SPEAK like a Leader
How do you balance micro-management against giving enough feedback? How do you engage with your team members and peer managers? How do you express empathy while still holding someone accountable? How do you adjust your style when managing a remote team?
ACT like a Leader
Who controls your calendar? How do you make sure you’re available and still get everything done? How do you interact with your peer managers and upper level management? How can you manage effectively in a remote environment?
Take your team’s performance to the next level through becoming a Coaching Leader. Learn to apply the stages of Project Planning. Use Project Coordination techniques to increase agility and improve results. Explore ways to put it all together, evaluate your experiences, and apply lessons learned.
Using your team’s actual experience, we will create Case Studies to use in the group sessions. Your team will be able to apply what they are learning to their specific situations as part of the course and receive coaching feedback to support their success.
Taking Blinders Off Your Team—Advancing Team Interactions
Why do people do what they do, the way they do it?
Ever wonder why it’s just easier to communicate with some people than others? Do you want to understand what makes the members of your team tick? Each member of your team, as well as your team as a group, has preferred ways of communicating, making decisions, accepting new ideas (or not), and processing information. With just two questions, we can help you unlock the secrets to how your group is hard-wired to succeed. We’ll share insights specific to working with your team just as effectively when working remotely.
Lead like a Woman
In today’s political and cultural climate, more and more women are embracing our inherently unique style of leadership. We are becoming more willing to speak out against our aggressors, and our voices are growing stronger. As women, we are acutely aware of some of the challenges that are uniquely faced by women as they enter, advance in, and manage the workplace. And some of us want and need a female-only space where we can explore these topics together.
This course is designed for women at any stage of their professional career. We’ll address a wide range of challenges faced by many women in the workplace and explore ways to overcome them. This is not a men-bashing session to simply air grievances. It’s a space in which we can share experiences and best practices around a variety of topics with the goal of problem-solving, supporting, and respecting differences.
