Leadership Presence:
Sending All the Right Signals
July 2, 2018 with Dr. Carol Kinsey Goman
Leadership presence, frequently called the "wow factor", is a blending of personal and interpersonal skills that when combined, send all the right signals. Backed by neuroscience and based on research from Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, MIT Media Lab, and Columbia School of Business, this interactive session gives participants tools and strategies they can put into action immediately.
Persuasion:
How to Sell Ice to Eskimos
August 24, 2018 with Dr. Pacelle Van Goethem
Participants will gain insight into how different persuasive styles work and which ones work best for them. The persuasion techniques to be discussed were extracted by Pacelle van Goethem and her team, among others, by extensively studying the most successful influencers in speeches, meetings and conversations. Some of the techniques will be presented as ultra-short exercises so that participants can quickly and easily try them out. In the end you will better understand how persuasion works, what persuasive style you have, and how quickly you can learn various persuasion techniques....
Managing Competing Demands:
Getting It Done and Having a Life
September 3, 2018 with Dr. David Posen
Work-Life Balance is no longer a luxury. It's a necessity for good health, energy and productivity. The objectives of this dynamic, interactive session are to help participants: (1) develop a clear picture of the Work-Life Balance they would like to achieve (2) identify obstacles that stand in the way of achieving their desired balance (3) develop a repertoire of action strategies and tools for overcoming current obstacles and any that may arise in the future and (4) develop their own personal action plan which is concrete, practical and achievable.
The Art of Diagnosis:
Solving the Right Problem the First Time
October 8, 2018 with Dr. Jackson Nickerson
The Art of Diagnosis provides new insights into how individuals and teams can solve the right problem the first time. The critical challenge is that all too often when tackling problems, individuals and teams suffer from a set of biases and impediments that cause them to focus prematurely on problem solving and "jump to solutions". In contrast, this program focuses on the art of comprehensively formulating problems before solving them. Participants will learn a variety of specific and proven processes to help them and their teams solve the right problem the first time.
Managing AND Leading:
7 Strategies to Help You Excel at Both
November 6, 2018 with Ann Tardy
This session will explore the essential strategies and techniques required to powerfully lead and manage simultaneously from the same role. Being a manager is one of the most arduous and yet most valuable roles in any organization. The challenge lies in dealing with the expectations of those above and below you while also contributing to people's success around you. When you master this, you will discover how to impact any organization from the middle. You will leave this class with the skills needed to powerfully evolve into a successful Manager. 
Strategy Matters:
Turning Ideas into Actions
December 7, 2018 with Dr. Thomas Lawton
In this seminar we lay out an integrated and dynamic process for thinking about and doing strategic management. Adopting a strategic approach renders managers better able to make decisions during unstable and uncertain periods and more able to deal with complexity, diversity and varied sources of information both inside and outside their organisations.  The underpinning principle is the balance between change and consistency. To achieve breakthroughs in performance, managers need to recognise and maximise where excellence exists inside the organisation, while at the same time identifying and seizing opportunities outside.
