Workshops and Speaking

Interactive, Actionable Education to

Strengthen Teams, Communication, and Wellbeing

Through education, interactive exercises, and in-the-moment coaching, I help organizations strengthen leadership, collaboration, productivity, effectiveness and wellbeing of their people and teams.

After clarifying your goals and obstacles, we develop a plan that can be measured and delivered at scale. Below are predesigned workshops to give you a sense of the possibilities. These can be shortened, lengthened, or customized to your goals.

I analyze root causes, develop process-oriented solutions, and create and deliver training.

Some organizations I've done this with include

  • Procter & Gamble, Kroger, Safeway, Essendant

  • Winthrop Stimpson Putnam & Roberts

  • The Career Resource Center, Job Search 101

  • The Leader Inside You, Toastmasters

  • North Shore School District 112, Nurture Your Family


Saboteur Workshop

Positive Intelligence

During this four-hour workshop, participants will gain a deeper understanding of their Saboteurs, the voices in their heads that generate stress and negative emotions.

  • Which Saboteurs are strongest

  • Impact on thoughts, feelings, relationships, and actions

  • Methods to quiet their Saboteurs

  • Use underlying strengths to improve performance, relationships, wellbeing

Burnout and attrition often arise when departments and teams communicate ineffectively. When they blame each other instead of owning their part of the problem and getting curious about the goals, needs, and constraints of others. With poor communication, collaboration, innovation, and efficiency suffer.

Communication Workshop

During this two-hour workshop, participants will learn and practice two communication frameworks for context setting and gaining alignment.

  • Using What and Why for stategic focus, creativity, and alignment

  • STAR framework for influence and clarity

  • Feedback on executive presence

  • Develop a plan for developing and enhancing these skills over time.

Leaders early in their career often struggle with communicating ideas strategically. They get mired in the details instead of inspiring and creating alignment. This limits their career progression and makes presentations to senior leaders less effective and efficient.
