There’s a way to lead effectively and perform better with less burden

For people who believe that there has to be a better way to lead, we provide a way to get those skills fast and highly effectively in an interactive experience with fellow leaders.

Our most successful clients take this workshop when they’re ready to:

  • stop allowing emotions to derail hard conversations.

  • be relieved of the burden of managing others, which is leading to burn out, anger, and resentment.

  • stop trying to “make” other people behave better (do the right thing).

  • eliminate conflict, lift their staff up, and lead the organization for the good of the whole.

  • take on the leadership persona they want to convey and get out of their limiting stories to be balanced and calm.

Implementation Options

  • Onsite Training: We can conduct a live, facilitator-led workshop for your executive leadership or leadership teams.

  • Public Workshop: You can attend one of our live, small-group intensive workshop that we offer a few times a year.

The course teaches skills and processes that are transferable across virtually any occupation and environment, and are the difference between effective leaders and transformational leaders by addressing critical communication and leadership flaws commonly found in leadership. I loved that Beth provided a safe space for learning, but was relentless in pushing people outside their comfort zones during the process. We all felt uncomfortable being challenged on certain issues, but that’s where the greatest growth occurred. The balance of activities vs. discussion was effective in providing practical application of skills and theory.

I am my biggest road-block to success. I had so much self-realization occur this week - it was so enlightening. I need to get out of my head and utilize and trust the process so that I can move forward in all areas of my life (professional, personal, and spiritual). It blew my mind how complicated we make things and how simple it really can be when we just strip everything away and get down to the facts. EVERYONE needs this. Every manager, leader, parent, teacher, coach, counselor, etc... basically, anyone who communicates with others needs to take this workshop.
