Join this interactive, activity-based workshop to hone-in on your interpersonal communication and management skills.

We’ll address what values, behaviors and structures drive strong teams and enable strong team leaders and how to apply this to your organization.

Organizations thrive when leaders are trained well. Research shows that tailored leadership and management training result in higher employee engagement, higher revenue, lower turnover, and lower absenteeism. Still, the big question is, “In an increasingly innovative, qualitative and creative (aka human-centered) workplace, what are the leadership skills that truly matter?”. This is what we’ll answer in this workshop.

Build skills in:

  • Effective Communication
  • Organizational Theory
  • Interpersonal Management
  • Leadership
  • Assertiveness
  • Performance Management
  • Influencing Others

This workshop is for you if you want to:

  • Identify and understand how workplace values have shifted and how this impacts expectations of today’s managers and leaders
  • Define your leadership style by identifying your workplace persona, motivations, relationship building style and areas of reactivity (aka things that make you immediately defensive or cause you to shut down)
  • Establish structured communication and management behaviors among your team (so that you aren’t accused of micromanagement or negligence)
  • Distinguish between performance discrepancies that you can directly address via feedback and performance discrepancies that are rooted in organizational inefficiencies (which are beyond your control!)
  • Discover tools and frameworks for better understanding people and how to relate these insights to what’s happening at work
