Build your Competitive Advantage...

Are you getting the right promotion and/or new job that you feel you deserve?

Showing leadership is not the same as providing management; if you have been recently promoted, have you adapted to how your job has fundamentally changed?

Are you operating with a high degree of alignment and effectiveness?

Are you building the right types of relationships to guide great decision making and promote successful actions?

Develop, refresh and manage your leadership image with a targeted conversation for impactful results. Learn how the impressions you leave upon others can and will determine your relationships, social resources and personal income or business revenue. You will conclude each session with life-changing skills you can use immediately; additional programs are offered and may be discussed to determine the best course of action.

Take a look at the following Individual Leadership Conversations...

Effective Communication Strategies

Each technique has been proven successful and effective in the toughest laboratories of all: the home, the workplace, and the other social arenas in which you live, work, and play. Effective communication is a facet of leadership. Effective Communication Strategies will open an extraordinary perspective on what really happens when you open your mouth to speak in order to get what you want.

Influence Comes First

Influence and persuasion are not just abstract concepts of interest exclusive to psychologists and sociologists. Rather, they are a fundamental part of your everyday life. Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly surrounded by people and groups trying to influence the way you think, act, and feel. Instead of following the will of others, you can actively take charge of your decisions—and your life—by grasping the science behind how influence works and by strengthening your own skills at influence and persuasion. And whether you are in the boardroom or at the family dinner table, you will find yourself reaping the rewards when it comes to the myriad ways you interact with other people and groups on a daily basis. Your ability to successfully influence others—including your children, your spouse, or your boss—is rooted in how well you can grasp and use the four fundamental components of any influence attempt. From there, we will explore some of the scientific and real-world applications of influence in your everyday life. With the aid of research on psychology and sociology, historical examples from politics and business, you will get solid guidelines and tips for how to become a more influential person—and how to resist influence attempts when it’s in your best interests to do so. With the insights, tools, and tips in Influence Comes First you will be able to use influence on behalf of any professional or personal goal.

Transformational Leadership: A Four Part Conversation

Contrary to what you may have heard, great leaders aren't born. They're made. The ability to effectively lead teams, transform entire organizations, and achieve ambitious goals comes not from an inherent set of personality traits but from the mastery of a specific set of skills essential to the success of leaders at many levels and in many fields.

Chief among the specific skills of transformational leadership are establishing a compelling vision, persuading and influencing others who may not agree with you, motivating people who may be wary of changes in the status quo, building an effective team that can manage and institutionalize change, and sparking innovative thinking.

Possessing these and other leadership abilities are powerful tools; so powerful, in fact, that when used correctly they can turn win-less teams into renowned champions, unmotivated departments into engines of creativity, and money losers into market leaders. What's more, these are skills that can be learned, practiced, cultivated, and applied to almost any aspect of your professional life—whether you're currently working in a leadership position, preparing to take on a more prominent role in your career, or looking to understand the secret knowledge of how great leaders do what they do. Unlike management, which focuses on achieving consistent and reliable results, transformational leadership focuses on producing change—sometimes very substantial or even radical change.
