half day to two day workshop
Do you want board members to walk away energized? Ready to think and work differently? Before we start, we’ll help you identify specific outcomes—as simple as developing a list of board roles and responsibilities or as complex as understanding the boundaries of your vision. In this workshop, each board member will learn how they can make a difference. They’ll discover ways to think differently about the board’s leadership role in the twenty first century, and have tools that will help them work as a cohesive unit to forge new directions for your organization.
Lead Different: Change or Else™
half day to three day workshop
Do you continue along with business as usual—management based on yesterday’s paradigms—or do you make a fundamental change in the way you lead and manage your organization? Participants will be exposed to different ways to think and communicate about innovation and change. They’ll have fun, learn the value of thinking out-of-the-box to better anticipate and lead change in everyday work situations.
