Most leadership training is stale, sterile, and dare I say it, conformist. I see so many types of leadership training, from well-known "gurus", to those trying to edge their way into the leadership PD realm. Despite newer developments in leadership development that are more human (encompassing all elements of leadership...communication, biology, neuroscience, anthropology, psychology, etc.), there are individuals out there continuing to peddle in semantics, old theories, charisma, buzz words, and exorbitant fees. I continue to stumble upon leadership training steeped in command and control practices and not that they would admit it, still encouraging models that favor profits over people. The latter is death to all innovation. As a result of this, I have decided to launch a new webinar series called Unorthodox. These aren't your average leadership workshops.
Despite having Zoom fatigue, I have carefully crafted these workshops to be fun, engaging, and a little... unorthodox. I anticipate these leadership workshops will help you release whatever it is you need to release...at least a little, if you choose. We will explore topics about empathy, resilience, human leadership, mental health, and more! However, audience participation is a must. These aren't webinars where you hide behind your computer, camera and mic off, doing work while the webinar plays in the background. You will participate as much as I do! For this reason, each webinar will be capped at 15 participants.
Anything (or anyone) can cause resentment. Our fuses are shorter and we are quick to react because we feel we are personally being attacked. If you can understand WHY you feel you are being personally attacked, then you can begin to understand the thoughts behind those feelings. Put your claws down, kitty!
We develop leadership training based on outdated academic theories or we use the latest and greatest buzz words in business circles. Let's drown out the bulls*t and get to work! Human leadership is leadership for the 21st century and it involves biology, anthropology, neuroscience, and emotional intelligence.
You know how you can help yourself and those around you? Take the EQ-i 2.0! In this webinar, we will collectively dissect the EQ-i 2.0 Workplace Report. You will take the assessment and I will provide a one-hour debrief PRIOR to this webinar. And simmer down...there's nothing to fear...except an hour with me.
After the year we have had, we all need to be self-compassionate.We can develop skills that help us deal better with situations and people. This webinar isn't therapy, but we will journey through understanding the correlation between feelings--thoughts--behaviors. Instead of acting on your emotions and ending up on an episode of America's Most Wanted, be less of a twatwaffle by learning to manage your emotions.
One of the hallmarks of emotional intelligence is the ability to be empathetic. There have always been a@@holes in our lives, but it seems the pandemic has unearthed a plethora. Instead of reaching through your computer screen to slap your co-worker, learn how to manage that passion (e.g., rage) into something more useful...empathy.
