Leaders Listen for Greatness:

Practical Empathy

 

Time is a limited resource and many leaders, while juggling multiple meetings and mountains of emails, may 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 deeply.

  • Access their empathy to better resolve conflict

  • Build influence and effectively connect with others.

 

Power With vs. Power Over:

The Science of Influence & Collaboration

 

Getting others to buy into new ideas or breaking down silos can be daunting. Learn how to leverage brain science to build partnership and trust in order to build teams and communication systems that work. If you’re lucky, you’ll avoid stepping on any landmines like their fight or flight instinct. This instinct is a valuable survival mechanism, but when triggered, it can break down communication and eventually, relationships. Explore how do you get others interested in your ideas? What will get the team working together even better?

 

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 and Achieving Goals That Matter

 

Have the goals and milestones set at the off-site retreat lost their luster and now lie passively in a slide deck or a binder on the shelf?

 

What if every goal set and every move made was aligned with a clear and compelling vision of the future? How would that alter the choices made each day?

This session will bring them to life! Teams and individuals will be inspired and focused on organizational and personal visions, while effortlessly achieving important milestones.

 

Stephen Covey’s bestseller “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” says “Your most important work is always ahead of you, never behind you.”

 

 

Learn how to:

  • Create a working blueprint of leadership vision and goals.

  • Identify potential obstacles to goals and include a plan to address them.

  • Build partnerships to support and hold each other accountable.
