Conquering Your Inner Critic: Ditch the Doubt. Claim Your Confidence.

This powerful presentation will help you find your voice and take control of where you want to go next. You’ll learn how to deal with that negative voice – the one that tells you a thousand reasons why you can’t – and tune into your true voice, your inner wise self, the real you who knows – not just that you can, but that you must.

In it you’ll learn:

  • What is that negative voice in your head and why is it there?
  • How to identify when it shows up and what to do about it
  • Tools to manage self-sabotage
  • How to tap into your inner wise leader

The true sign of leadership is letting go of judgment. And that begins with yourself. When you learn to show yourself the same compassion you show others, trusting your wise self and choosing your steps with confidence, you are able to show up more fully for others.

Masterful Leadership: How Your Communication Style Sets the Stage for Team Success

Do you wonder why it’s easier to communicate with certain people than it is with others? Are you frustrated when members of your team just don’t get you? Do you want to know how to finally be understood and create a more productive team?

Learn the four types of communication priorities and preferences people choose and how to effectively communicate with them all.

This interactive presentation will show you:

  • What your natural communication preference is
  • How your style differs from others and how to recognize those differences
  • How to effectively communicate with differing styles to build lasting relationships and create a cohesive  and effective team

Successful leadership is not just having a great idea. Stand out from the rest by showing your team you really understand them and what their needs are by speaking their language. This presentation is perfect for anyone who leads a team – large or small – on a regular basis.
