Workshop #4: Shifting from Scarcity to Abundance

Do you ever feel like there aren’t enough resources available for you?  Promotions and raises are in short supply.  There is no room on the leadership team for me. And in March of 2020, we were scrambling for toilet paper, hand sanitizer and our favorite canned products. There are times and areas of our life where we can feel like everything is working against us.  Fear of the unknown can keep in a scarcity mindset. 

In this workshop, we will be exploring a 3-step process to shift into abundance for the areas of your life you find yourself in scarcity. In abundance, our fears and anxiety are relieved, and we enjoy the security and confidence of knowing there are more than enough resources for you and everyone else.

Workshop #7: The Gift of Giving & Receiving Feedback

Imagine someone just asked if you would be open to feedback. How do you feel?  It's not always easy to hear feedback. And it can be just as difficult to deliver feedback in a way that is meaningful for others.  However, great leaderes know that delivering and receiving feedback is the cornerstone of growth for themselves and for those that they lead.

In this workshop, leaders learn and practice the skillful art of giving and receiving feedback in a generous and appreciative way.

Workshop #8: Ruthless Prioritization in a 'Way Too Busy' World

As leaders, we must take ownership, responsibility and accountability for moving our career forward and creating results for our organizations.  With the advancements in technology, it seems like our plates are even fuller than they were before.  So how do we create results in a world that is consistently challenging us to do more with less?

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create a superior work product, with less effort and time, by prioritizing and fiercely guarding the “forward-moving” actions on your calendar. You’ll learn how to de-prioritize work that isn’t vital (right now!) and eliminate any non-sense work that is wasting your most valuable resource, your time.

Workshop #10: Leadership Self-Care

Workshop #11: Living the I'm Enough Lifestyle

How you respond to moments of “not enough” define you.  Will you succumb to listening to that inner voice, second guessing your value?  Or will you choose to RISE above to embrace the value you have to gift to the world. 

 

In this workshop, leaders learn how to get out from under the “not enough” spell to begin living a leadership life of ‘I’m enough’.  Leaders learn how to eliminate self-limiting thoughts to create and enjoy a life of abundance, purpose and fulfillment.
