About the Workshop

Find your communication style, discover how you interact with others, and become a more effective leader in this 3-part virtual workshop.

Know Yourself to Lead Yourself

Know Yourself to Lead Yourself is another foundational tool you will use every day. In short, it helps you answer the question, “What’s it like to be on the other side of me - and why?” It gives you a simple, visual way to consistently understand how your tendencies and actions impact others and affect your own reality.

Provisional, Plan, Promise

Have you ever thought out-loud and created unnecessary pain or drama when people thought you meant it as a concrete promise and responded negatively to it? A lack of clarity in communication is one of the biggest sources of misalignment, drama, and performance issues inside any team. This is especially true when we fail to communicate the status, direction, and level of commitment to certain ideas, plans, and initiatives. So here are 3 "code words" you can use in your team to help you clarify your intent and the level of certainty or expectation people should have about a particular idea. 

5 Circles of Influence

Building effective relationships with people at work and in our personal life is key to our happiness, productivity, and success. But we often have different tendencies or habits with different people in our lives. So what's it like to be on the other side of you? The 5 Circles of Influence tool helps us identify, prioritize, and understand these key work and personal relationships with the goal of becoming healthier and more productive in each one.
