Leaders Listen for Greatness:
Time is a limited resource and many leaders. While juggling multiple meetings and mountains of emails, they often find it challenging to remain connected to their team and customers.
While most of us communicate using a variety of methods, ordinarily, leaders invest the majority of the time honing their speaking skills in order to run a meeting, conduct client presentations, or lead team training sessions.
Extraordinary leadership performance is centered around the way leaders listen to their team members, bosses, and customers.
Learn how to:
Remain present and grounded in the face of stressful situations
Use key non-verbal and verbal techniques to support listening generously
Leverage empathy to better resolve conflict
Build influence and effectively connect with others
Optimize communication and collaboration

Discover how you can inspire others to collaborate by becoming a more effective communicator.
Learn how to:
Avoid triggering the fight or flight mechanism in others
Gain influence and collaborate more effectively
Address others' concerns and determine the best method to address the situation

Creating Your Circle of Influencers

Leaders also benefit by creating, relying on, and nurturing a circle of people who have key strengths, abilities, and connections that can guide, support and challenge you to achieve your goals and bring your vision to life.
Learn how to:
Identify four types of partnerships that are essential for your personal circle of influencers.
Evaluate, define and leverage your current partnerships.
