The Leadership Challenge®

The Leadership Challenge® evolved from research started in 1983 by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner when they set out to discover what people did when they were at their personal best in leading others. They discovered certain behaviors common to leaders who make extraordinary things happen in organizations and eventually grouped these behaviors into The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. Today The Five Practices (and 30 behaviors) are the basis of The Leadership Challenge® Model, and this workshop. Leaders at all levels can benefit from this experience. What will you learn? Among other things, to…
  • Identify your leadership strengths and areas for improvement
  • Better communicate and focus the efforts of others on fundamental values and beliefs
  • Inspire others to share a common vision
  • Build collaboration, teamwork, and trust
  • Strengthen others’ abilities to excel

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)

Understanding Type: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) Workshops

By understanding ourselves better, we gain a broader understanding of our strengths and potential blind spots.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator research goes back more than 50 years. This workshop builds upon that history in a relevant, common sense, and fun way. Building upon individual assessments we cover how our preferences influence our perceptions, and how others perceive us. This information can help with career planning, conflict resolution, communication, change, leadership and team effectiveness.

Workshop content is based upon the idea that everyone has unique gifts to offer and challenges to overcome. The process used encourages participants to learn more about themselves, others and how all our individual components can fit together to boost overall success and well-being. Prior to the workshop all participants will have the opportunity to complete their own, individual assessment. 

This information can help with:

  • Career planning
  • Conflict resolution
  • Communication
  • Change leadership
  • Team effectiveness 

Conflict Management and Resolution

Organizations and Teams are made up of employees who have different characteristics, styles, and experiences. We need to be able to agree on goals and support each other in the achievement of those goals, despite our differences. Being able to handle conflict constructively is critical for individual, team and organizational success.

This workshop uses the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) to help people understand their own conflict styles and the styles of others.

Workshop topics include

  • What is conflict?
  • Understanding the five conflict modes of the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict model (TKI®)
  • Determining if you  might be overusing or underusing one of the five conflict-handling modes
    • Individual completion of the TKI
    • Improving how you manage conflict in the future
  • Steps to Conflict Resolution

Understanding Social + Emotional Intelligence

Social + Emotional Intelligence is a form of intelligence that drives our success in work, in life and in our relationships. S + EI is the ability to be aware of our own emotions and those of others, in the moment, and to use that information to manage ourselves and manage our relationships. Developing these components can help us become more in tune with ourselves and to those around us. The truth is, the most successful people in work and in life have the ability to manage themselves and manage their relationships with others.

Social and emotional intelligence (S+EI or sometimes referred to as EI or EQ) encompasses many skill sets, including stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, powerful influencing skills, catalyzing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust and much more. Unfortunately, we see it most when it’s lacking – think of the boss who explodes when a deadline is missed, or the co-worker whom no one trusts. These people are limited by their lack of S+EI skills.

The good news? S+EI can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives. It’s never too late to add these essential skills at an individual or organizational level. Learn how developing S + EI can help to bring out the best in yourself and others by attending a workshop.

Workshop topics include:

  • Understanding Social+Emotional Intelligence
  • A review of the 26 competencies that make up social + emotional intelligence
  • Individual completion of the Social Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP®) self-assessment
    • Identification of personal strengths and areas for growth
  • Making it stick: how to apply back on the job
