  • Decision-Making Leadership – Examining the Issues That Hinder Successful Decision Making™
    Nike’s famous slogan, “Just Do It!” can be easier said than done. Good leaders understand that decision making is a critical key to success. Great leaders follow this famous slogan and make decisions. What stands between being a good decision-making leader and a great one? This workshop examines the elements that may be impacting your decisions, and provides tools to aid in being a great leader with the strength of will to make great decisions.
    A key to successful business, whether for-profit or non-profit, is to thrive and not just survive. As leaders, we have a solid foundation to stand on, a clear vision to pursue, but everything else falls in between foundation and vision, ensuring that it all gets done. What we focus on will expand, so where is your focus…? Is it on getting by, reaching targets, pleasing boards or meeting missions? Do you act or react? Is the answer “all of the above” or “that and more”? Let’s share what supports us all in thriving with purpose and within mission.
  • You’ve Built a Successful Business and That’s Good, but What Have You Done For Me Lately?™
    This is not just a great cliché thanks to the 1986 song from Janet Jackson. When was the last time you did something for you… stepped back from leadership and just focused on who you are and what you need? When was the last time you shed the titles, looked in the mirror and asked, “What have you done for me lately?” Why is this so important and how does it impact your business?
  • Visionary Leadership – Important, Yes, but How Successful is It Without Its Companion, Strong Foundation? What is yours?™
    In the film “Field of Dreams”, the promise to the landowner was “If you build it, they will come.” Well, you built it, and it has a mission and a vision, but is the foundation strong? On what foundation was the business built? When the major storms of “life” interrupt your business, will the company have the strong foundation to survive the storm, or will it be swept away like sand or straw? What is the foundation of your business? When the going gets tough, what does your foundation say you do? And is your foundation known by all of your team, your vendors and your clients?
  • Letting Go & Stepping into Better™
    In order to let go of your past or even present, you must have something to reach toward. Seeing (visualizing) and believing in your vision is the first and most critical step to realizing its success; and with the right tools you can stir up your natural gifts and grab hold of the path to purpose. Let go of what’s holding you back and lay claim to the best that’s awaiting you. Expand your leadership skills and be confident that the steps you’re taking are being ordered in the right direction, the direction of your destiny.
