Resilience – the capacity and reserve to lead vibrantly now and into the future – is a vital hallmark and skill of leadership. Resilience can and must be developed to meet the rigors of leadership. Study practical steps to cultivate the four components to becoming a “resilient” leader.

Daniel Goleman’s research reveals that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) accounts for 85 percent of great leadership with cognitive skills contributing just 15 percent. The good news is that unlike IQ, EQ can be cultivated. This session deals with knowing and developing one’s EQ – the capacity to know and manage self as well as relations with others.

We all have a preferred leadership style. But not every person responds the same way and not every situation calls for the same leadership style. This session addresses the different leadership styles and when to apply them, and it looks at the Situational Leadership II model – helping you to be a more flexible and effective leader.

This application-based workshop will focus on “Self-Leadership” – the toughest challenge for a leader. Clarify your purpose, values and priorities. Cultivate your character and EQ. Develop other leadership styles and the personal depth to sustain yourself long-term.

According to John Maxwell, “It takes a leader to raise up a leader.” His research concluded that 85 percent of leaders listed “influence of another leader” as the primary path to their development. This session will address the five Es of leadership development -environment, education, experience, exposure (to other leaders) as well as evaluation. The crucial nature of coaching will be included.

“If you fail to plan, plan to fail.” This session will provide practical skills in strategic planning and problem solving.

Teams that Get the Mission Done and Have Fun “If I want to go fast, I go by myself. If I want to go far, I go with a team.” Most failures of people in leadership positions occur because they cannot lead a team. This session addresses team-building issues and solutions.
