Excellent Leadership means inspiring, encouraging and empowering the team members. One great way to do this is to brainstorm on everyone's Everybody Wins Ideas. In this session intended for teams, the facilitator will share the Everybody Wins mindset, then "go around the virtual room" as people brainstorm on how to put those in place. A second advanced leadership concept is to treat others as THEY want to be treated, which is NOT necessarily how YOU want to be treated. Part 2 of this session involves going around the room again with the team and each person shares how he/she likes to be treated in various areas.
In today's work environment, there is a continuous push to make rapid decisions. Information appears to be at our finger tips through the internet, social media and other electronic tools that may lead us to believe we have immediate, honest, and accurate information to move forward quickly with a decision. Further we are pushed into a sense of urgency with motivational tools such as advertising, competition and uncertainty that evoke our emotions and weaken our structured decision making process. In this interactive session, participants will be able to: 1) Identify barriers that limit good decision making 2) Describe two process systems to support good decision making 3) Create action steps to create your own standardize decision making process
Emotional intelligence is the ability to monitor ones own and other people's emotions to discriminate between different emotions and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior. According to Inc. Magazine, the higher the ranking title (such as CEO) the lower the emotional intelligence. Over time lack of emotional intelligence impacts behavior as well as promotions. If you are serious about climbing the career ladder, emotional intelligence is a must. Join us for this two part series where Elizabeth will explain what emotional intelligence is, why it's important and how to develop the skill. This course is beneficial in work situations or in your personal life.
Bullying and employee engagement don't mix. Bullying is one person intimidating or threatening another in a disrespectful, dominating, or cruel manner. Bullies tend to put performance results ahead of all other considerations including respect and trust. Bullies think about themselves and not about others. Aggressiveness is action without regard to others. It's an "I win and you lose" strategy. Assertiveness is action with a "win-win" strategy. Employee engagement can only grow in a culture that discourages and prevents bullying while encouraging collaboration, respect, and effective relationships with win-win communications. Bullies damage performance and we must have a strategy to deflect and/or eliminate the inappropriate behaviors or risk increasing costs and lost performance. In this one hour webinar participants will learn: -Why bullies exist and why they survive in organizations -How to shift your thinking about a bully to create positive power and influence -Techniques which will re-direct the bully's attacks and starve the source of a bully's power

By following the examples of some very successful people who adopted a positive mental attitude, we will see how they achieved great things. By using the same techniques you too can achieve whatever you set your mind to and be the person you want to be. This includes performing at the very highest level you can.
When things go wrong in a business, everyone loses out. Employees are frustrated at having to continually fix problems and correct mistakes, the business loses money and often the customer is affected by a reduction in quality or a late delivery. Some major business issues can start from a small error being made early on in the process, going undetected and not being corrected until it is too late. This is where Right First Time is vital if you want to avoid costly mistakes.
Many people don't set motivating sales goals because maybe it takes too much time or they don't see the benefit of setting goals. You can set goals the right way so you can achieve your sales success. Learn the areas to set goals that will motivate and inspire you so that you can be even more successful.
The performance review is an artifact of the 20th Century. Performance reviews are costly, time consuming and often a one way monologue without follow-up. What do we replace it with? The Five Conversations Framework is a thoroughly tested, distinctive alternative that draws on well-established principles of organizational behavior. This fresh alternative, based on performance development rather than performance appraisal, is being used all over the world.
Teamwork involves different people across a business to work together to maximise their efficiency and reach a common goal. In this session you will learn about the way high performing teams are organised and developed. In addition we will look at team leadership and team roles that produce increased efficiency and a competitive edge.

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
