Maintaining Professionalism Under Pressure

During the first half of the day, participants will learn their own natural tendencies while under pressure and explore the sources of stress along with some of the factors which keep us from successful execution of our goals. Through a series of examples, we will conduct a “Before/After” analysis of approaches to common workplace challenges discussing strategies for navigating those stressful moments while maintaining professionalism.

Leading Without Authority

In this half-day session, we will explore the traditional sources of power and how they can positively impact our ability to build legitimacy in our leadership. Participants will discover their own tendencies while communicating with others and strategies for increasing their effectiveness. This session will conclude with a look at the “other side of leadership,” which focuses on how any leader can challenge themselves on a daily basis.
