Do your employees get "leadership-overwhelmed?” Here's an opportunity to unlearn the leadership approaches that disengage your people, and instead learn how to empower them to innovate and take initiative. This workshop will help you foster a culture that adapts a positive mindset around change and disruption and apply Coaching Leadership tools to move people away from problems and toward solutions.

You will explore questions on disrupting leadership, such as: 

  • Where do our ideas about leadership come from? 
  • What are the biggest challenges you face as a leader? 
  • What is the neuroscience of leadership success?
  • What are some limiting beliefs that might hold you back?   
You will learn: 
  • How to create a climate for initiative 
  • Why others should want to encourage innovation 
Key learning and takeaways include discovering how to: 
  • Take risks and model comfort with risk 
  • Fail fast and learn from mistakes 
  • Pivot or change with ease 
  • Not get angry or critical, but instead get creative and curious about the silver lining    

The final takeaways will be to consider your own plan for Leadership Development and how you will get there.
