Change efforts often fail because they lack front end preparation, consensus building, decision making frameworks, buy-in, and the ability to manage resistance effectively. Organizations also tend to lack a common language, system, and set of tools that are a familiar 'go-to' with each and every change effort.

 

Based off of state of the art change approaches I've employed around the world, this interactive two day workshop provides an exciting, step-by-step approach for leading and managing change.

PARTICIPANTS WILL

  • Engage employees in leading proactive changes (big and small) that directly and transparently improve their strategic value and satisfaction.

  • Harness expertise and ignite their desire to help the organization grow and flourish.

  • Carry out and measure the success of creative changes they have directly developed.

  • Build organization-wide leadership capability.

​BOTTOM LINE

This workshop is ultimately designed to help leaders lead change from start to finish and support the factors that help make change stick.

In addition to navigating complex challenges, leaders are called upon to be visionary, collaborative, and creative to positively impact the performance of their organizations. As a result, recent leadership development models are expanding the definition of leadership beyond situational and competency-based approaches, which reduce leadership to a particular set of behaviors and skill sets.

 

These models distinguish leadership as a way of being and focus on the interpersonal development of the self as leader, which includes cultivating real-time awareness of mental models and conscious insights, while intentionally integrating an individual’s sense of identity, which is grounded in values, beliefs, and natural talents. Developing these attributes requires learning how to access the body in a way that anchors leaders to the present moment and intuitive connection to their sense of purpose, perceptions, thoughts, and emotions.

PARTICIPANTS WILL

  • Learn about the Problem(s) with Classic Leadership

  • Understand what it means to fully embody leadership by aligning presence with purpose.

  • Take the Leadership Presence & Purpose Inventory to determine their Way of Being at Work (Yearning, Habituating, Transforming, or Transcending)

  • Cultivate Leadership Presence through Mindfulness Practice

​BOTTOM LINE

This workshop is ultimately designed to give leaders a framework and essential practices for cultivating leadership presence and embodying their values, through and through.

Leaders are now expected to guide their organizations through countless forms of complexity, including market uncertainty,  rapid technological change, globalization, generational divides, cultural differences, and change management initiatives. Research demonstrates that practicing mindfulness enables success in this environment by transforming a leader's relationship with ambiguity altogether. Learning to lead mindfully enables this transformation by cultivating: Non Attachment, Resilience, Creativity, and Compassion.

Participants also learn how to awaken these same qualities in others and inspire them to rally around causes greater than their own self-interests. Listen to this
interview between Stanford University researcher and Dr. William Brendel about this first-of-its kind application of bio-feedback to leadership development.
