Lead Yourself to Success (in Work & Life!)

Discover how becoming a leader in your own life translates to being a true leader at work and vice versa, regardless of your official role in either! When you define and own your unique talents, passions and abilities, and bring that understanding and enthusiasm to your work, along with practicing self-care on a regular basis, you will begin to build a feeling of inner calm and ease as you become more connected to who you are and what you do. By recognizing and exercising your innate leadership skills and becoming the boss of your own life, you will find a deeper sense of fulfillment and internal security that can weather any career or life storm. 

Using both lecture format, reflective and interactive exercises and group coaching
to tap into the ways in which you can have influence over your personal and professional life, this workshop will offer insights and tools for you to become more in touch with and gain confidence in who you are, what you contribute to your company (or the world at large), how you can better manage your time and energy, communicate more effectively, minimize stress, maximize productivity and achieve the results you desire in any area of life.

In this workshop you will:
  • Re-assess your skills, talents, abilities and values and how they align with current duties and responsibilities
  • Understand communication styles, active listening and setting boundaries
  • Build confidence, know your "brand" and find your voice
  • Find ways to exceed organizational and personal goals and expectations
  • Create awareness of daily routines and make tweaks to increase peace and harmony at work and home
  • Gain a renewed perspective and newfound energy to increase your productivity in every area of life
This class is perfect if you:
  • are unsatisfied with your current situation and are looking to realize your highest potential
  • want to take your career to the next level, or have been recently promoted
  • want to feel more empowered, confident and in control of your time and energy
  • are looking for clarity and direction in the next stage of your career or in general
