“Leadership for ‘Nice’ People”

Do you have people on your team that don’t believe they are good leaders?  Do you struggle to set clear boundaries and expectations because you want to be nice?  If so, the lies about leadership just might be working overtime in our thinking.  Lies that say you must please everyone, you must have all the answers, you must avoid judgment, and you somehow tricked the people who hired you.  You get the idea; all the thoughts that isolate us.  But here’s the secret:  those lies aren’t true.  Learn what the lies are, how to catch them, and practice accessible tools to grow as a leadership. 

“Wholehearted Leading When Stress, Burnout, and Comparison Say Why Try”

Leading can be so draining in our fast-paced world but that doesn’t mean that we can’t find oasis of rejuvenation in our busy schedules. Even three mindful breathes can change the trajectory of our day!   Based on Dr. Brené Brown’s research learn how comparison and judgment keep us hustling and hiding, how our brains get hijacked when too much stress is present, and how to not only manage but effectively move through these barriers to living and leading with more purpose, joy, meaning, and connection.  You will leave with new tangible tools.  

“Bounce Back!  How Resiliency Moves You From Surviving to Thriving”

A field of study has never been so hot as the current research on neuroscience and resiliency.  What do we learn when we look at patterns of thoughts and behavior that actually work pretty well for people?  We learn how to bounce back!  Resiliency can be learned.  We will look at the components of resiliency, practice skill-building to develop it, and learn how it helps us get the results we want.

“Creating a Coaching Culture in Your Organization”

Does the attitude, “Just tell me what to do!” seep into your culture?  And then when a plan of implementation flops, the attitude of “I knew it won’t work in the first place” creeps in?  You can change that culture to one of ownership by creating a culture of coaching in which your team functions on inquiry of discovery, self-awareness, accountability, and mutual support.  This workshop will teach your team the foundational behaviors of coaching and can prepare your team members to become certified coaches through the International Coaching Federation. 

“Putting the Kind Back in Human”

With the pressures of our modern world, we could all use a little more honest-to-goodness kindness in our lives.  More of ‘we are in this together’ and ‘we can get through mistakes and setbacks,’ more genuine interest and concern.  Learn actionable practices to support your team, self-compassion practices to support yourself, and unleash the power of curiosity to use when in hard, heated, or horns-locked conversations, and the three step process for healthy conversations.  A bonus feature for those in Minnesota – we will look at Minnesota Nice and how it just might be keeping us from real authentic connections that move us forward. 

“Dare to be You”

Using the research and exercises of Dr. Brené Brown, this presentation will inspire participants to live authentically, purposefully, and with more connection.  Understanding vulnerability and how it is connected to courage has changed the lives of countless people.  This workshop can be tailored to be very interactive.
