Training and development. Words that most leaders fear because it means putting time into an employee and away from the daily workload. Many leaders shy away from developing employees due to lack of time, but studies show it's the number one reason why people leave their jobs. An employee asking for development is an employee that is asking to be retained. In fact, Glassdoor's 2014 employment confidence survey of nearly 1,000 U.S. employees found that 63% of employees believe that learning new skills or receiving special training is the most important towards career advancement.I In this class, Elizabeth will show leaders how to develop their employees and why it's critical. Development isn't a task that should be saddled with Human Resources. Smart leaders develop, empower and grow their teams. Class will cover: Tips of how to develop employees Development is a signal to retain How to create a simple and effective development path When to consider succession planning How to avoid having a top heavy organization while creating career path

It's been said that the only thing permanent is change itself and in business it's no different. Change is inevitable. In Elizabeth's last class on Emotional Intelligence, she talked about how the brain is actually hard wired to resist change. Recoiling from change can become a major issue in the office. Just think about the changes that can happen in a business - implementing a new software, hiring new people, firing non performers, taking on a new business line, merging with a competitor. Each of these changes are critical for business to thrive and survive, but the bottom line is people - your people - are the ones that have to embrace and implement your vision as a leader. This class will teach: Understanding how change affects employees How to motivate employees to embrace change How to prepare and 'sell' your staff into change How to implement change in the workplace How your leadership style will make or break if the change is successful This presentation is wonderful for a seasoned leader or a new leader. Join us for an hour that could change your whole idea about what change is - and how to manage change.
Excellent Leadership means inspiring, encouraging and empowering the team members. One great way to do this is to brainstorm on everyone's Everybody Wins Ideas. In this session intended for teams, the facilitator will share the Everybody Wins mindset, then "go around the virtual room" as people brainstorm on how to put those in place. A second advanced leadership concept is to treat others as THEY want to be treated, which is NOT necessarily how YOU want to be treated. Part 2 of this session involves going around the room again with the team and each person shares how he/she likes to be treated in various areas.
In today's work environment, there is a continuous push to make rapid decisions. Information appears to be at our finger tips through the internet, social media and other electronic tools that may lead us to believe we have immediate, honest, and accurate information to move forward quickly with a decision. Further we are pushed into a sense of urgency with motivational tools such as advertising, competition and uncertainty that evoke our emotions and weaken our structured decision making process. In this interactive session, participants will be able to: 1) Identify barriers that limit good decision making 2) Describe two process systems to support good decision making 3) Create action steps to create your own standardize decision making process

Someone once said, "Leadership would be easy if it weren't for the people." Are the people the cause of problems or is it our leadership model? The problems of today stem from poor leadership, and only effective leadership will bring our organizations and society back to hope and prosperity. Research over the past 30 years confirms that only 21-30% of employees are engaged. This means only a small percentage actually care about you, the company, and the customers enough to put in extra effort. Improved leadership is not only needed at the highest levels, but throughout our society - down to the smallest of companies, departments, offices, and even personal lives. This webinar provides basic leadership principles in order to build a successful foundation for employee engagement and organizational performance. Tomorrow's leaders must be able to predictably engage people and teams to create long-term positive improvement. This webinar can help established executives and managers and also those new to their careers. Every single person can and must be a leader at some level and must know how to improve. By understanding and applying the principles anyone can gain influence and improve performance through others - regardless of the size of their organization. In this 60 minute webinar participants will learn (or re-learn): - How we have been taught the wrong theory of leadership and it's making things worse - The basics we can practice every day which will continuously improve accountability and performance - Where leaders can focus energy and resources to avoid problems in the future
This workshop consists of four 60 minute sessions that will help you become a conscious leader. INSPIRING AND INFLUENCING OTHERS Successful leaders spend little (if any) time focusing on what to say to get people to take action. Instead, great leaders focus on "how they can be" & this way of being INSPIRES others to accomplishment. In this session, you'll assess how you inspire in 14 different areas, and then come up with a plan on how to improve. DYNAMIC COMMUNICATION To best convey our message, it's beneficial to fully understand all aspects of communication.

Finally, you'll learn 5 strategies for dealing with conflict or problems.
The two most important people-abilities required to achieve a competitive advantage into the future were identified by 4,700 executives in a 2008 survey by a professional Human Resource consulting company.

Your personal brand consists of many things: knowledge, experiences, personality, friends, family, accomplishments, failures, attire, verbal and non-verbal communication, attitude, values, faith, and much more. Personal branding is who you are, what's inside, and how that translates to everyday actions, behaviors, and decisions. Your brand value translates directly to the value of the team, organization, and/or business. We will explore the topic during this session.
