Are you a cattle herder or a cat herder? Find out in this fun and insightful program that shares the latest thinking and research about leadership and what types of leaders produce the best results. In this seminar, Don Shapiro, co-author of The Character-Based Leader, will inspire you to embrace your role as a leader and learn how to develop a leadership character that can build trust.
Not all leadership methods are equal when it comes to producing results. While most leadership ideas can help you work better with your people, that alone will not raise your people's performance enough to actually boost results.
Research shows there are certain types of leaders that produce higher sales, profits, customer satisfaction, teamwork, employee engagement and employee retention. In community organizations, they get more enthusiastic involvement and commitment from volunteers.
Great leadership is about trust and building that trust is about your character...who you are. It's not about your title, position, power or authority. You can be a great leader without a title and having a title does not make you a leader. It's also not about using good human relations techniques. While that can improve how well you deal with people, it takes a lot more than techniques to build the type of trust that can produce exceptional performance.
People trust your character, not your title or techniques. When you lead from a character that builds trust, your people will enthusiastically join you in pursuing your goals.
Leadership character is a combination of your values and principles, how you see your role as a leader and your attitude toward those you lead. That includes integrity, respect, humility and servant leadership.
This seminar will explore the type of leadership character that builds trust and how you can grow into this type of leader.

Someone once said, "Leadership would be easy if it weren't for the people." Are the people the cause of problems or is it our leadership model?
The problems of today stem from poor leadership, and only effective leadership will bring our organizations and society back to hope and prosperity. Research over the past 30 years confirms that only 21-30% of employees are engaged. This means only a small percentage actually care about you, the company, and the customers enough to put in extra effort. Improved leadership is not only needed at the highest levels, but throughout our society - down to the smallest of companies, departments, offices, and even personal lives.
This webinar provides basic leadership principles in order to build a successful foundation for employee engagement and organizational performance. Tomorrow's leaders must be able to predictably engage people and teams to create long-term positive improvement.
This webinar can help established executives and managers and also those new to their careers. Every single person can and must be a leader at some level and must know how to improve. By understanding and applying the principles anyone can gain influence and improve performance through others - regardless of the size of their organization.
In this 60 minute webinar participants will learn (or re-learn):
- How we have been taught the wrong theory of leadership and it's making things worse
- The basics we can practice every day which will continuously improve accountability and performance
- Where leaders can focus energy and resources to avoid problems in the future
This workshop consists of four 60 minute sessions that will help you become a conscious leader.
INSPIRING AND INFLUENCING OTHERS
Successful leaders spend little (if any) time focusing on what to say to get people to take action. Instead, great leaders focus on "how they can be" & this way of being INSPIRES others to accomplishment. In this session, you'll assess how you inspire in 14 different areas, and then come up with a plan on how to improve.
To best convey our message, it's beneficial to fully understand all aspects of communication. In this session, you'll learn about the 3 main facets - nonverbal, tone and words - and what percentage each makes up of our total communication.

Finally, you'll learn 5 strategies for dealing with conflict or problems.
The two most important people-abilities required to achieve a competitive advantage into the future were identified by 4,700 executives in a 2008 survey by a professional Human Resource consulting company. These two critical abilities are:
ï§ The ability to manage talent
ï§ The ability to improve leadership
The shift in our economy from local to global and from industrial to knowledge has created pressure on leaders to improve their competencies of dealing with people and managing complex systems.
This webinar offers practical theory and tools that enable anyone to influence others to willingly exert effort toward higher productivity and improved performance. This program is designed to help leaders to upgrade and improve two critical new competencies needed to lead a modern organization i.e. skill necessary to improve both interpersonal interactions and complex system interactions.

The Bible tells us that we must first trust each other with the little things before we can trust with the big things. So it is with leaders. It is the little behaviors every day that either build trust or damage it.
Employees entrust their leaders with their incomes (salaries) and their careers. These are BIG THINGS. To feel confident in these, employees must also be confident in the little things leaders do. Without a high level of trust or confidence engagement will plateau or even drop.
Anyone who thinks they can achieve employee engagement without high levels of trust is sorely mistaken. Trust is a cornerstone in the foundation for employee engagement and leaders must be aware of its level and how their actions and decisions can impact it. There are four strategies leaders can use to be sure they are optimizing trust and therefore building a foundation for engagement.
In this webinar participants will learn:
â¢ A leadership model which enables seamless relationship repair
â¢ The ârealâ root cause of most conflicts
â¢ The definition of trust
â¢ The four steps to reconciliation
â¢ How to get started
This session looks at why change is inevitable and how it is important to embrace it. We will closely examine some of the dynamics that cause change to take place and then at the effects change has on people and organisations. By learning from failures to change we can build a bullet proof plan to implement change in the workplace.
Emotionally intelligent teams get results. They exhibit self-confidence, they communicate, and they require far less hands-on management. Time is not wasted on politics and personal agendas. Team members are focused on the goals of the organization and how best to achieve it. So, that means there is no conflict? Wrong. Disagreements are commonplace, and are even encouraged, but what is absent is hurt feelings, grudges, and vendettas. Do you have an
emotionally intelligent team? Come find out what it takes to have an emotionally intelligent team.
The average manager attends 3-4 meetings per day. Estimates tell us nearly 50% of that meeting time is wasted. This translates into 30-40 hours per month of wasted time (4 work days). Because time is one of the most important resources organizations unable to manage meeting time will remain uncompetitive.
Managing meetings is one of the most important competencies for making decisions, achieving goals, and motivating others. Combine the ability to run an effective waste-free meeting with the ability to be proactive by both solving problems and preventing them and you have a powerful combination for improvement.
Six Thinking Hats is a practical, fast paced, fun, interactive and remarkably effective tool that can be used by any leader to help a team create innovative solutions by thinking more effectively and cooperatively about problems.

Anyone who facilitates meetings and needs faster high quality answers to problems will benefit from this webinar.
Participants will learn:
â¢ The description of the Six Thinking Hats method
â¢ When to use the Six Thinking Hats in a meeting
â¢ How to facilitate a problem solving meeting with the tool to both solve a problem and ideally avoid it in the future
Why Employees Behave Like Children: How Can They Grow Up Quickly?
Virtually every Human Resources today vigorously shakes his/her head up and down whenever they are asked if they regularly see employees behave like children. Why is it that adults behave like children at work?
The word "supervise" means to oversee i.e. "over" (super) "see" (vis). This suggests that employees must be watched carefully to assure quality, proper behavior, effort etc. Is this what we want in our organizations? Does overseeing people's work improve performance? Is this even possible in today's fast paced working environments?
There are two types of childish behavior. One has a very positive impact on the organization, the other damages productivity and performance. The webinar shows participants how to encourage the positive and discourage the negative.
Participants will learn:

Any organisation is a strong as the team of people they put together. Each person brings with them a unique set of skills, knowledge, intelligences, attitude and baggage. Bring a team together and the resource grows potentially to provide not just the individual set, but the huge benefits that interaction between people can create.
Organisations where people pool their knowledge, skills, imagination, ideas and experience have so much more resource to draw upon. If you unpick the elements that make any organisation successful one of the core reasons is the quality of the people within it and the way in which they inter-relate.
This course offers a tried and tested 10 step approach to creating your "Dream Team"
Leaders today suffer from a crisis of trust and accountability. Accountability is misinterpreted and misunderstood in many organizations. It is often interpreted as a form of punishment for sins committed. Yet organizations cannot be optimally successful without a high level of accountability and employee engagement.
Engagement and accountability move together and we are failing at both. According to Stephen Covey (The Speed of Trust) only 2 in 10 trust their organization and only 13% trust the other departments. GallupÃ¢â¬â¢s annual survey on employee engagement continues to show only 29-31% of employees being engaged.
Accountability is ability not a punishment. It is an ability to explain or justify actions for which we are responsible. It is a way to demonstrate our integrity. To improve accountability there are more useful realities. Leaders can manage it much better and they must!! To do so requires a shift in thinking and a change in techniques. That is what this webinar is all about.
Participants can expect to learn:
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Why our current accountability model is holding us back
Ã¢â¬Â¢ The three myths of accountability which create unintended consequences including damaged employee engagement
Ã¢â¬Â¢ A new model and techniques to influence everyone to behave with accountability with every single action
