Chapter 1

Psychology

  • Date: November 7th

  • Time: 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Through self-assessments and awareness exercises, participants will come to realize that how they view themselves as an individual and a leader is in direct proportion to the results they are currently getting.
In order to change those results and really accelerate your career, you will need to develop a more positive self-image. Strategies and practical exercises will help anchor the better self-image into your consciousness and you will be able to apply them into your role as a leader.

Chapter 2

Productivity

  • Date: November 14th

  • Time: 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Being more productive is not about becoming busier. High Performing Leaders are more productive and are able to accomplish more in order to lead a more fulfilling life.

Three key factors go into becoming more productive:

  • Time - the pressing need to make the most out of your day

  • Attention - the focus and awareness needed to become more productive

  • Energy - an abundance of energy to meet deadlines and task completion

Participants will explore and learn strategies of proper planning as well as ways on overcoming the pressures of competing priorities.

Persuasion

Participants will also learn strategies on having those tough conversations to correct poor performance and develop the confidence to have the conversations.

Chapter 4

People

  • Date: November 28th

  • Time: 6:30pm - 9:30pm

A High Performing Leader realizes that in order to raise themselves up, they need to raise others around them. In fact, a key study on leadership identified that leaders had someone at some point believe in them and that was the motivating factor for them to succeed.*

Participants will identify the key people around them they will need to coach and develop in order to elevate their role as a leader. Strategies and techniques will be shared in order for the participants to begin developing their people immediately.
