An IBM survey of 1500 CEO resulted in this finding: creative & innovative thinking is the #1 most needed leadership comptency. This is a fun, interactive program to guide attendees through practical tools on how to generate ideas and develop innovative thinking.

Leadership From The Inside-Out
Don't let the title fool you...this is a workshop designed for every employee and works from the premise that every employee is a leaders and should be empowered to see themselves that way.
Additionally, an essential principle in effective leadership is who people are on the inside will dictate the kind of leader and the kind of team they will have on the outside. The inside can be characterized as authentic personal power. Attendees are guided through 13 points of a personal power wheel to provide tangible touch points for creating and maintaining personal power. This establishes the foundation for authentic leadership. This is for everyone! Leadership_from_the_Inside-E.pdf
The Unspoken Keys To Communicating with Tact & Finesse
A very interactive program that approaches this topic in a refreshing way. The approach is by teaching that we are not necessarily speaking to a person but to their mind. An essential component of communicating effectively is understanding how the mind works and then with that knowledge using unique techniques that can be used to achieve better outcomes. Some of the techniques are taken from NLP (neuro linquistic programing). I call these specific techniques "3D Communication."
