for leaders.

High-performing leaders are masters at making conscious performance choices. They are aware  of what they are doing and the impact it is having. They have a broad range of strategies and behavioral tools at their fingertips. They are adept at separating noise from signal, and making choices at high speed that align with their goals.  


The Leadership Performance Series gives leaders in all roles and at all levels the opportunity to expand their awareness and focus their leadership influence and communication skills to maximize their strategic impact

for developing others.

Drawing from a variety of our management skills and coaching skills programs, here are thoughts on customized programs to enhance managers’ coaching skills.

The Manager as Coach: Enhancing Sales Skills through Performance Practice, Feedback and Goal-setting.

Few people within an organization have as much opportunity to assess and develop an individual’s professional skills as her manager. But many managers don’t spend time on this kind of development. This course will make the case for managers making coaching a priority and provide the skills and tools that allow managers to effectively embrace this role.

Sample Programs

  • Improv for Trainers: Improv activities have been used in training on topics as varied as product training, new-hire orientations, technical training and diversity workshops.
  • Improv for Coaches: Between knowledge and application lies skill-practice. Improv is a perfect way for coaches and leaders to exercises their communication and creativity “muscles” and strengthen their skills and mindsets.

 

 
 

for team excellence.

Let’s state the obvious: soft skills training programs are sometimes viewed as an excuse for a group to waste a valuable day in silly games and activities. We couldn’t agree more. Sadly, sometimes they are just that. However, intelligently used, play can and should be a powerful agent for positive change. This workshop features playful interaction that will encourage a team to collaborate and excel at meeting new challenges in a high-pressure business environment.

Sample Programs

  • Align your Team: Work Session to Ramp Up, Pivot, or Realign for Results

  • Listening 3.0: Working this Super-skills for Increased Sales and Relationship Building

  • Status and Power Dynamics: The ability to consciously and skillfully manipulate status is hugely effective in all business situations.

  • Failing Successfully: Risk Taking for positive outcomes

 
 

for sales.

Human beings are performers. We make choices – conscious and unconscious - about how to stand, speak, and respond, in virtually every interaction we have. This is most obvious when we are called on to present formally and when we consciously set out to sell something.


As salespeople we are often presenting one-on-one, having to tailor our messages on the fly to specific, diverse customers - a feat that requires high-level, adept presentation skills of the highest order.

Sample Programs

  • Presentation and the Art of Sales Communication: Enhancing Sales Skills through Performance Practice, Feedback and Goal-setting.
  • Creating Value, Building Connection: Improvisation and the Art of Selling

  • Relationship Based Sales: Problem Solving for Sales
