The Leadership Zoo: What Animal Are You?


Connections are crucial to leadership and parenting. This presentation uses animals to discuss personality types based on the model developed by Gary Smalley and John Trent. Through an understanding of personality types, we can learn to be responsible for our own well-being and also connect with and lead others effectively. During this session, attendees will learn helpful truths about themselves and others. This understanding can assist our own growth and as we seek to help others on their journey.


Social and emotional intelligence (S+EI or sometimes referred to as EI or EQ) encompasses many skill sets, including stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, powerful influencing skills, catalyzing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust and much more. Unfortunately, we see it most when it’s lacking – think of the boss who explodes when a deadline is missed, or the co-worker whom no one trusts.  These people are limited by their lack of S+EI skills.  The good news?  S+EI can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives.  It’s never too late to add these essential skills to your career strategy, and research concludes the fastest way to enhance your S+EI skills is through coaching.  This workshop can be presented with or without the participants' taking the the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)®, designed specifically to measure emotional intelligence in the workplace.  The SEIP™ is the most comprehensive instrument on the market today, measuring 26 distinct S+EI competencies critical to management and leadership success.


The Greatest Gift: Becoming a Giver of Hope

One of the greatest indicators of future success in school, business, and relationships is the capacity to hope.  As we interact with coworkers, friends, clients, and family we directly impact their likelihood of success as we impact their levels of hope. Hope can be measured and developed. Participants will learn about themselves and practical ways to be channels of hope to those around them.


The Wounds of Caring

We are driven to care.  We are moved by suffering, driven by empathy, and demonstrate compassion.  As helpers, the forces that drive us to do what we do and the act of helping are the forces that will wound us.  This workshop provides insight into the natural process by which caring individuals are wounded and provides practical protective measures for healing and protection.


Communicating for a Change

The commutation process is clouded with distraction, distortion, and sometimes all out demolition.  Learn to be effective in your communication, whether in conversation, written channels, or in front of a group. This presentation is loaded with practical tips and exercises and can be tailored to specific contexts as desired.


Connection: It Really Stinks To Be You

Life is hard. Stuff happens.  It really does stink to be you.  From time to time, we all feel that way - either about our own lives or others. Learn the key to making this truth work for you as you impact the lives of others. Whether in a professional or informal capacity, the fact that life stinks sometimes can work to your advantage.
