9/11 AND BEYOND:  WHAT I LEARNED LEADING DURING TRYING TIMES

September 11th, 2001 was a gorgeous day in Washington, DC.  Within 2 hours of getting to work and meeting with my team, everything changed.  Not only for us but for everyone in America.  On that day and the months that followed, I learned a lot about myself and the people around me about courage, commitment, and the ingenuity of Americans that have a purpose and want to make a difference.  They are lessons any leader can use to lead better, get more done, and leave a legacy.

GET PAST THE CRAP!  The 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY RESILIENT LEADERS

Leading isn’t all cotton candy and lollipops!   Most of the time, we’re handed a big bag of crap and expected to make things happen.  It can be stressful, it can be taxing and it can keep us from enjoying what (should be) a good day.  If you want to lead others, you have to lead yourself first.  We are no good to our teams if we’re not running at our optimum and are weighed down by all the crap that gets thrown at us.  This fun and energetic program shares the 7 habits that resilient leaders consistently do to lead themselves first, get past the crap and create environments where their teams flourish.

Your leaders will leave this program with tools they can implement immediately to reduce their stress, connect better with their teams and bounce back when life kicks them in the backside.

DON’T BORROW JACKS!  Controlling Anger Before It Controls The Team

We live in an angry world.  All you have to do is turn on the news or look at Facebook to see that everyone has an opinion, everyone wants to be heard, no one is listening and anger triggers run rampant.  When tempers flare it can destroy team cohesion, engagement, and our ability to get the job done.   Further, hostile environments spur higher turnover rates.  This interactive, humorous program helps team members identify their own anger triggers, how to deal with the difficult people around them and work more cohesively as a team.

Your team members will immediately be able to use the tools in this program to make an immediate difference in their own teams, reduce anger triggers, and work better together towards a common goal.
