What you will learn…

Designing an Alliance

More often than not we are in such a rush to get to the end goal that we forget to consider HOW we are going to work together to get there.

Designing an alliance will transform the way you and your people work together – it’s simple and powerful.

It's All in the Mind

Once we understand that “We see the world, not the way it is, but the way we are” we can begin to collaborate with others in a refreshing new way and that’s when creativity and innovation can flourish – it really is all in the mind.

Active Listening

Imagine if people actually listened to each other – imagine if they listened to each other in meetings?

Listening is the most important leadership skill – it creates understanding, connection and opens the door for collaboration.

In this module you will learn how to listen actively. It sounds simple but you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.

Curiosity

Einstein said, "It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education"

Education rewards us for having the right answers – curiosity thrives on asking the right questions.

In this module you’ll discover that having all the answers is not all it’s cracked up to be and why ignorance can be a real gift.

Feedback Feedback Feedback

"How am I doing?" is the question everyone wants answering, from the CEO to the most junior recruit.

In this module we will teach you everything you need to know about giving and receiving feedback, so that everyone in your business knows how they’re doing. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.

The Art of Persuasion

'I tried to persuade them but they just don't buy it' Effective persuading is as much about good listening as it is about good ideas – listening for the connection between what you want and what they want is the name of the game - it's called collaboration.

In this module you will learn how to become more influential by shutting up and listening more.

Creating from Conflict

Conflict is natural, it occurs when people care about things especially when they care enough to disagree, sometimes vehemently. This can be uncomfortable AND a massive opportunity for creating better ideas and better relationships.

In this module we will focus on how to deal with and create from conflict.

Leadership is a Choice

We are always making choices - choosing what we do, where we work, how much we work, how much we play... we are always choosing.

The real challenge of personal leadership though is to choose consciously and powerfully, to say yes and mean it, to say no and mean it, that way you get to live the life you choose.

In this final module you will learn how.
