Course schedule

Session 1

Run Better Meetings

In this workshop, participants will learn how to leverage the power of psychological safety to run more effective, productive and high performing meetings. Participants begin with an assessment of the current state of their meetings which can be mapped onto the six core components of psychologically safe meetings. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of our meeting framework leading to greater levels of inclusion, interaction, engagement, and productivity.

Session 2

Coach Your Team

Coaching is a future-focused question-centric process leaders use to support growth and hold people accountable. Coaching revolves around listening, asking questions, and leading people to solve their own problems. This course focuses on situational coaching in which managers and leaders informally incorporate coaching throughout a typical workday.

Session 3

Give and Receive Feedback for Managers

Give and Receive Feedback is one of our foundational course geared towards managers that covers the basics of a subject many people find difficult. Participants explore a systems approach rooted in growth to giving and receiving feedback that is flexible and holistic. Our approach is still grounded in observable, situational details but takes giving and receiving feedback a step farther, resulting in unique and authentic feedback that is more likely to be heard, understood, embraced, and acted upon.

Session 4

Deal with Conflict

Learn to recognize when a situation has turned from a simple disagreement into a conflict by understanding the root cause of conflict and the role threat-response plays. Temper your own reactions in a heated moment with a conflict analysis framework. Work toward positive-sum outcomes with a 4-step process for managing your responses and offers.

Session 5

Increase Focus and Avoid Distractions

So, you’ve learned to plan your day by optimizing your schedule. You’ve blocked your calendar to accurately reflect the time you actually need to complete tasks. You’ve matched the different types of work you do with your energy peaks and valleys. Yet it is still a challenge to manage your time because the realities of the modern workplace will conspire to distract you. This course will help you maintain focus and stay on track. You will learn practical tools that can help you to better align your daily activities to accomplish your goals.
