The Leadership Conversation

We’ve teamed up with Nomadic to deploy a program with your busy leaders in mind. This virtual, conversational leadership training blends the best of self-directed learning with an online, any-device, team approach that encourages cross-generational learning and engages participants. Learners work in teams that move through the online program at the same time with activities that encourage collaboration and sharing. Includes four structured, research-driven programs that take eight hours to complete — Creating Leadership, Elements of Leadership, Virtual Leadership, and Leading Innovation.

Better Conversations Every Day™

This one-day program focuses on everyday conversations as a core aspect of culture and one ripe for immediate and visible transformation. Shifting from thinking about coaching as a just a service targeting executives or a skillset for managers, we show what’s possible when individuals at all levels of the organization are impacted by a coaching mindset and practicing a few core behaviors. The result? A workforce with the courage and skill to openly discuss challenging issues, achieve deeper understanding, unlock collaboration, and create liberating space for discovery and action — in real time, while doing real work experience.
