Details About Individual Workshops

The Leadership Development program includes the following workshops:


Managing Time Effectively

If you’re going to ask busy executives and managers to dedicate time to develop new leadership skills, you need to give them tools to find more time in their already overbooked schedule. Our time management workshop focuses on the development of effective time management skills, and will help participants gain a greater appreciation for how small changes in their approach to time management can make them more productive.

Effective Communications

Effective communication starts at the top, and executives and managers play a key role, not just in communicating important information but in setting a positive example of effective communication for your company’s other managers and associates. This workshop focuses on both verbal and written communications issues, and includes a section on communicating effectively thought texts and emails.


Delegating for Results

Successful delegation can significantly expand the leverage of executives and managers and increase the overall effectiveness of their organizations. Equally important, delegating responsibilities to others offers important development opportunities for other managers and associates, thereby increasing organizational capabilities. This workshop focuses on small interactive group work that actively explores the challenges of delegation in a range of scenarios.

Effective Coaching Skills

This program provides an introduction to essential coaching and mentoring techniques, and includes individual and group exercises that allow participants to develop effective coaching and mentoring skills.


Problem-Solving and Decision-Making

Effective problem-solving and decision-making are key leadership skills that often distinguish successful leaders from those who are less successful.  This workshop presents and discusses a pyramid framework for problem-solving and decision-making, and provides participants with the opportunity to apply that framework in evaluating and addressing a real-life challenge.

Dealing with Conflict

Conflicts are inevitable in both our business and personal lives. But learning to constructively work through conflicts with others can often lead to stronger, healthier and more productive relationships. In this workshop, participants will gain a fuller appreciation of the different approaches to dealing with conflict, and will engage in roll-plays and other exercises to become more comfortable using different conflict styles.


Building Effective Teams

Based on Patrick Lencioni’s The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this workshop provides an introduction to the essentials of effective team building, The workshop can be especially useful for small teams of 3-5 people from the same organization, who can collaboratively address team building as it relates to their own experiences.
