Creating and implementing Leadership Curriculum across large organizations is one of our cornerstones. Many great employees are brought up through the ranks and then asked to lead a team, or division. Rarely are these great employees given the tools of leadership, rather they are tossed into the deep end of the pool to either sink or swim. This seems counterintuitive, it doesn’t serve an organization well to select a bright employee and then not supply the training and tools necessary to support their leadership role. Our highly interactive seminars are designed for the aspiring leader, new leader, and seasoned leader to hone and improve their skills.
Growing a Great Team
There is much data on the role of right hiring, right onboarding and right growth in employee retention and creating a strong team. Practical application of this data may be difficult to understand. This “down to earth,’ interactive training, based on the metaphor of a garden, will explore the role each leader has in the 8 steps of creating an environment where every employee can be encouraged to do the best work of their lives.
· The Seed – finding the right fit
· The Pot – placing the right person in the right role
· The Soil – the role of orientation and onboarding
· The Depth and Support – the role of mentoring
· The Water – pacing learning with personal growth
· The Sun – the value of encouraging feedback
· The Pests – dealing with employees who have bad habits and hinder the garden
· The Harvest – the results of great teamwork

Clear, Concise, Communication
Most of us know a great deal about communication, yet so often it goes awry. We find ourselves walking away, either huffing and puffing in anger at the other person or ourselves – or worse, we remain quiet and never share our perspective. We often find it easier to “hope” the other person will have an enlightenment and we will be spared a difficult conversation. Learning the components of communication, our strengths, our challenges, and our pitfalls assists us in mastering effective conversations.
