Within each of us is the potential to lead with excellence and in ways that truly make a positive difference to our careers, organizations and communities. Successful leaders know how their values, emotions, and communication styles impact their ability to collaborate, motivate their teams, and keep their mission in focus. They have the ability to stay flexible and positively choose how to react to different situations and people.

Join internationally recognized trainer, blogger, and author Beth Kanter to gain practical skills for managing your team from a position of calm - not stress - and establishing stability in your organization and your career while still reaching your goals.

This workshop is based on Kanter’s books, “The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout” and the “Emerging Leaders Playbook.”

Learning Objectives

  • Match appropriate communications styles to the right situation and people by articulating (through an assessment) your default style and understanding common styles.
  • Accurately read and adapt to various situations and people by practicing active listening and asking powerful questions.
  • Get some tips on self-management and self-awareness practices to improve productivity, relationships, and motivation at work.
