Leading in the Middle Training

For those in leadership positions the current challenges and disruptions can lead to exhaustion, reactive responses and apathy both personally and professionally.

Transformational Conversations | Interactive Training

One conversation. One exchange of words spoken, written, typed, texted, or posted can change the direction and ultimately the outcome. Conversations create culture. And yet, the skill and practice of creating culture building conversations is given little attention and less intention in organizations. Conversations directly impact whether the mission is activated or discarded. Companies can't afford to not give attention to strategies that equip people to have transformational conversations. The very sustainability of the organization is a stake.
