Are you a cattle herder or a cat herder? Find out in this fun and insightful program that shares the latest thinking and research about leadership and what types of leaders produce the best results. In this seminar, Don Shapiro, co-author of The Character-Based Leader, will inspire you to embrace your role as a leader and learn how to develop a leadership character that can build trust. Not all leadership methods are equal when it comes to producing results. While most leadership ideas can help you work better with your people, that alone will not raise your people's performance enough to actually boost results. Research shows there are certain types of leaders that produce higher sales, profits, customer satisfaction, teamwork, employee engagement and employee retention. In community organizations, they get more enthusiastic involvement and commitment from volunteers. Great leadership is about trust and building that trust is about your character...who you are. It's not about your title, position, power or authority. You can be a great leader without a title and having a title does not make you a leader. It's also not about using good human relations techniques. While that can improve how well you deal with people, it takes a lot more than techniques to build the type of trust that can produce exceptional performance. People trust your character, not your title or techniques. When you lead from a character that builds trust, your people will enthusiastically join you in pursuing your goals. Leadership character is a combination of your values and principles, how you see your role as a leader and your attitude toward those you lead. That includes integrity, respect, humility and servant leadership. This seminar will explore the type of leadership character that builds trust and how you can grow into this type of leader.
You spend a lifetime learning things, but when was the last time you stopped to think about how you learn? You might be surprised about how much of our natural learning ability is unwittingly damaged or suppressed by the very educational system that was designed to "teach" us. In this fascinating session Julian will reveal how to deliver "brain friendly" training that sticks, including memory techniques and sensory perception. You and your learners will absorb more and retain information far longer when you use these ideas. Julian will show you different ways to engage the human brain to create a more natural way to learn. You will gain new ways to unlock the learning potential of your people, and have fun at the same time!

It's been said that the only thing permanent is change itself and in business it's no different. Change is inevitable. In Elizabeth's last class on Emotional Intelligence, she talked about how the brain is actually hard wired to resist change. Recoiling from change can become a major issue in the office. Just think about the changes that can happen in a business - implementing a new software, hiring new people, firing non performers, taking on a new business line, merging with a competitor. Each of these changes are critical for business to thrive and survive, but the bottom line is people - your people - are the ones that have to embrace and implement your vision as a leader. This class will teach: Understanding how change affects employees How to motivate employees to embrace change How to prepare and 'sell' your staff into change How to implement change in the workplace How your leadership style will make or break if the change is successful This presentation is wonderful for a seasoned leader or a new leader. Join us for an hour that could change your whole idea about what change is - and how to manage change.

Someone once said, "Leadership would be easy if it weren't for the people." Are the people the cause of problems or is it our leadership model? The problems of today stem from poor leadership, and only effective leadership will bring our organizations and society back to hope and prosperity. Research over the past 30 years confirms that only 21-30% of employees are engaged. This means only a small percentage actually care about you, the company, and the customers enough to put in extra effort. Improved leadership is not only needed at the highest levels, but throughout our society - down to the smallest of companies, departments, offices, and even personal lives. This webinar provides basic leadership principles in order to build a successful foundation for employee engagement and organizational performance. Tomorrow's leaders must be able to predictably engage people and teams to create long-term positive improvement. This webinar can help established executives and managers and also those new to their careers. Every single person can and must be a leader at some level and must know how to improve. By understanding and applying the principles anyone can gain influence and improve performance through others - regardless of the size of their organization. In this 60 minute webinar participants will learn (or re-learn): - How we have been taught the wrong theory of leadership and it's making things worse - The basics we can practice every day which will continuously improve accountability and performance - Where leaders can focus energy and resources to avoid problems in the future

This workshop consists of four 60 minute sessions that will help you become a conscious leader. INSPIRING AND INFLUENCING OTHERS Successful leaders spend little (if any) time focusing on what to say to get people to take action. Instead, great leaders focus on "how they can be" & this way of being INSPIRES others to accomplishment. In this session, you'll assess how you inspire in 14 different areas, and then come up with a plan on how to improve. DYNAMIC COMMUNICATION To best convey our message, it's beneficial to fully understand all aspects of communication. In this session, you'll learn about the 3 main facets - nonverbal, tone and words - and what percentage each makes up of our total communication. You'll assess yourself in each area and then craft your ideal image of yourself as a Dynamic Communicator. BUILDING & MAINTAINING POSITIVE WORKPLACE RELATIONSHIPS Take an in-depth look at your workplace relationships by articulating your criteria for positive, supportive relationships, and then assess key people that you interact with professionally and how they stack up. You will walk away with goals on cultivating more of the good (and less of the bad). Finally, you'll learn 5 strategies for how to deal with toxic work relationships. PROBLEM SOLVING In this Leadership-based session, you'll assess how you look at problems from a figurative energy standpoint. You'll then think about and decide how you can look at "problems" in a more empowering way. We will also explore the 4 phases of the Cycle of Change - Shuffle, Deal, Play the Game & Toss In. Finally, you'll learn 5 strategies for dealing with conflict or problems.

As a manager in a business, we need to accept we cannot do everything ourselves. We need others around us to take on work and responsibilities in order to achieve business objectives. This may sound simple enough, however it is probably one of the least understood management skills and one many managers find difficult in practice. In this session we learn techniques to delegate so we can be more effective.

Your personal brand consists of many things: knowledge, experiences, personality, friends, family, accomplishments, failures, attire, verbal and non-verbal communication, attitude, values, faith, and much more. Personal branding is who you are, what's inside, and how that translates to everyday actions, behaviors, and decisions. Your brand value translates directly to the value of the team, organization, and/or business. We will explore the topic during this session.

The Bible tells us that we must first trust each other with the little things before we can trust with the big things. So it is with leaders. It is the little behaviors every day that either build trust or damage it. Employees entrust their leaders with their incomes (salaries) and their careers. These are BIG THINGS. To feel confident in these, employees must also be confident in the little things leaders do. Without a high level of trust or confidence engagement will plateau or even drop. Anyone who thinks they can achieve employee engagement without high levels of trust is sorely mistaken. Trust is a cornerstone in the foundation for employee engagement and leaders must be aware of its level and how their actions and decisions can impact it. There are four strategies leaders can use to be sure they are optimizing trust and therefore building a foundation for engagement. In this webinar participants will learn: - A leadership model which enables seamless relationship repair - The "real" root cause of most conflicts - The definition of trust - The four steps to reconciliation - How to get started
