The Emotionally Effective Leader* (typically a full day course where participants take an  EQ-i 2.0® Leadership Assessment)
 An organization’s success rests on the ability of its leaders.  True leaders, no matter their level – supervisors, managers, or CEOs – see their role as far more than mere managers and task distributors.  A successful leader is dedicated to being committed, collaborative, nurturing talent, developing skills, fostering relationships, and much more.  To achieve this success, it’s imperative that you develop your Emotional Intelligence (EQ).
Leveraging results from leaders’ EQ-i 2.0® Leadership Reports, participants of this session will learn the importance of emotional intelligence in effective leadership and leave with a better understanding of their strengths and areas to develop to enhance leadership skills, as well as an action plan on how to increase effectiveness.

Effective Decision-Making Skills
"You cannot make progress without making decisions."  This quote from author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn is a good reminder that decisions are part of moving yourself and an organization forward.  But let’s face it, many people struggle with making effective decisions. Sometimes they don't look at things in an objective light, sometimes they shoot from the hip too often or freeze up and can't find a path forward, or they may not even have a systematic process to think through how to solve a problem in the first place.  We know that at some point in your personal and professional lives, you will have to make a decision.  

Building Your Personal Brand

One of the most important aspects of growing you career is intentionally building your personal brand.  In this course, we will explore what a personal brand is, why you should focus on it, and how to do it.

Motivating and Coaching your Employees

For leaders to fully position their company for long-term success, they must realize their employees are the #1 asset.  Leaders need to invest in their employees by motivating and coaching them to reach their full potential.  This can only be achieved by creating a safe and trusting space in which employees feel comfortable talking with their leaders about individual, department, and organization matters.  In this session, we will explore effective techniques to motivate and coach your employees and ways to build a safe and trusted space for your employees.

Communicating and Giving Feedback Effectively

Communication plays an imperative role in an organization meeting its strategic objectives, being able to adapt to changes, and strengthening its connection with its employees. However, many leaders struggle with how to communicate and give feedback effectively within their organization. They assume their employees already understand why decisions have been made, what their expectations are, and how they are performing. Meanwhile, employees are left floundering and not performing to their fullest potential. In this session, we will explore best practices in communicating and giving feedback to improve individual, department, and organizational performance.
