Leadership in Action

According to the Police Executive,“Leadership is an observable, learnable set of practices and patterns of behavior.  Leadership is not something mystical that cannot be understood by ordinary people. It is a process ordinary people use when they are bringing forth the best for themselves and others.”

Question: Have you ever promoted someone  into a leadership or supervisory  position with little  or no formal training in leadership and management skills?

Today’s leader cannot be one-dimensional. This interactive two-day workshop focuses on identifying different styles of leadership so as to broaden a participant’s knowledge of how to effectively lead his/her people. Participants leave with specific tools and an action plan that they can use to implement organizational change.

As a result of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Identify five different styles of leadership
  • Identify their own personal style of leadership
  • Benchmark two strengths and two areas of improvement
  • Practice the elements of effective communication through role plays in
    • Active listening
    • Positive feedback and feedback for improvement
  • Improve team building skills
  • Implement conflict resolution techniques
  • Learn  basic principles of coaching

Power Communication

One of the most important leadership skills is learning how to effectively communicate. In its simplest form, communication is the sharing of information between a sender and a receiver. In our world today, however, cross cultural demands, generational differences and the growth of technology is making communication more complex. 

‘Power Communication’ is an interactive workshop that simplifies the information overload and closes the communication gap by giving participants practical feedback and empathic listening tools they can use at work and at home to improve relationships, contribute to a culture of trust and further realize their career leadership potential.

As a result of this workshop participants will learn:

  • How to complete the communication ‘loop’
  • Good to Great. How to benchmark your personal communication skills
  • Empathic listening skills and guidelines for improvement
  • How different ‘voices’, body language and cultural differences affect communication 
  • How to give and receive quality feedback
  • Team building communication skills


They say ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’. By definition, ‘savvy means shrewdness and knowledge in the reality of life’. In addition to building trust and facilitating change, an effective leader must use ‘savvy’ to exert personal influence to achieve his/her goals. This starts with a good understanding of different leadership styles and how to use your own style most effectively.

This workshop looks specifically at transformational leadership in an effort to give participants real tools that can be used to become change agents within their organization.  At the end of this workshop participants will be better equipped to work through a comprehensive action plan to solve work related issues using information gained from the workshop.

Let’s Not Argue, I Happen to Be Right!

This course deals with conflict resolution. There are basically three ways to respond to conflict:

  • Avoidance
  • Face it and handle it poorly
  • Face it and handle it well

Often the path of least resistance in the face of conflict, confrontation or opposing viewpoints with co-workers, subordinates, friends and family is one of silence or avoidance. It is essential that leaders learn how to take action by meeting these problems head on instead of hoping they will go away by themselves. Saying nothing often gives tacit approval for someone’s else’s poor behavior which can build up of over time and weaken your ability to lead effectively. 

‘Let’s Not Argue I Happen to Be Right!’ takes both a scientific, practical and humorous look at how to get more positive results resolving conflict by actively engaging the audience using role-play and group facilitation.
