SOFT SKILLS

LET'S GET TO THE ROOT

OF THE PROBLEM TOGETHER 

NO Hype...NO Fluff...NO Extra

COURAGEOUSLY CREATIVE: Release Your Potential to Create 

Creativity and innovation are at the core of who you are.

You are one idea away from a promotion or solving a problem that plagues your department and/or organization. Each of us has the potential to be profoundly creative. However, the reason that very few tap into this creativity is because it requires courage and vulnerability. For those Divergent Leaders that desire to be a value to the organizations and communities they serve, they should work to cultivate creativity. Creative leaders breed movements and drive innovation. They find new solutions to old problems, while considering the bigger picture. They also ask powerful questions that engage and ignite creativity in others. To disrupt the industry that you serve, you must operate in a heightened level of creativity.

  • Understand the relationship between imagination, creativity and innovation

  • Learn simple ways to cultivate creativity and generate new ideas

  • Learn how to overcome creative roadblocks as a means to stir creativity

DIVERGENT (TRANSFORMATIONAL) LEADERSHIP: Change at the Speed of Thought

Studies show that people leave jobs because of bad managers, but this is only half of the truth. If your organization struggles with employee retention, performance or leadership issues, check your culture, training, systems, and communication or lack thereof. Understand that leaders are by-products of the organizations they serve and without proper training and resources, they will always fail. Yes, some may be born leaders, but even great leaders must be trained, corrected and continuously nurtured. This training is designed to equip leaders with the tools and information needed to have a profound impact in their organizations. In a market that is always changing, it's important to have strong, emotionally intelligent teams, comprised of self-actualized thought leaders that create trends and embrace change as their norm.

PRIORITIZING FOR INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY & BALANCE

Every day we're challenged with the task of producing more with seemingly less time and resources, causing many people to find themselves in a place of burnout or lacking fulfillment. While time seems to be going faster, we all still have the same number of hours each day and more resources at our fingertips than ever before, to produce the results that we desire. But how do you do this in a world filled with tons of distractions and demands? The truth is, there are no short cuts or tricks, but proven disciplines that will help you increase your productivity, while achieving balance.

SELF-ACTUALIZATION & EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TRAINING

Everyone desires to be the greatest version of themselves, but many will struggle over their lifetime to achieve this place of self-actualization. Abraham Maslow suggests that as individuals find satisfaction in the five areas of their basic human needs, they change and experience greater levels of growth, ultimately reaching self-actualization. What I have come to find is that many times these stages of growth are disrupted by life experiences and the whirlwind of emotions that come with them. Because of emotional immaturity, many people are unable to think clearly, make effective decisions and solve problems. In most instances, it’s your feelings that cause you to lose focus and miss opportunities. This is why emotional intelligence is the key to achieving higher levels of self-actualization and has often been linked to higher levels of performance.

  • Simple steps to better manage their emotions and feelings, so they can accomplish tasks and projects efficiently and effectively

  • How to conquer stress and live more fulfilled through a state that Maslow refers to as a peak experience

THE MYNDSET SHIFT: Divergent Thinking for Thought Leaders (Critical Thinking Revisted)

The mind is the only thing that separates you from computers and animals. It is an invaluable asset that yields immeasurable results when strengthened and utilized. While the brain is powerful, it is highly underutilized as people are relying more on machines to do all the thinking for them. As a result, we are running on autopilot with very little thought, causing everything being produced to look the same. We’ve become a copy and paste society/ economy, operating beneath our potential. We are stifling our creativity and ability to truly innovate, making it harder to truly stand out in the marketplace. The good news is, there’s a solution. We must train people to think divergently, to think and create from the fullness of their being and a means of developing new and unusual concepts, products and ideas to disrupt the marketplace.

  • Understand how to courageously become a free-thinker to generate a myriad of bold, new, creative, unique ideas and solutions
