Workshops

The key for your organization to thrive is to be cohesive, aligned & profitable at the same time.

With so many changes constantly taking place, it’s no wonder your organization struggles through the transitions. Your leaders struggle to connect purpose and profit through consolidations, technology changes, regulatory pressures, and workforce shortages… which creates tension between your mission and your very real need to keep a healthy bottom line.

At the end of the day, your people are pulled in so many different directions and are jumping through so many hoops that they’re hungrier than ever for someone to LEAD them toward successfully fulfilling your mission while maintaining a profitable business.

That’s where we can have such a profound impact on your leaders and teams. Our programs show the leaders in your organization how to cultivate a thriving, magnetic culture with engaged employees who are driven and aligned with your mission.

Most workshops can be presented as virtual or in person sessions.

Leading High-Performance Virtual & Distributed Teams

The global 2020 pandemic accelerated remote work in ways that would have taken decades. Many of these workers will remain working virtually at least part of the time. Even those in office environments may be based in different locations.

This workshop is designed to help participants:

  • Understand different individual work styles and motivating needs.
  • Communicate with virtual staff to keep them connected with the rest of the team.
  • Encourage shared leadership where each person has accountability for team success.
  • Discover ways to measure results and promote high performance.
  • Build trust and empathy across the team.
