Do the leaders you employ know how to develop trust, build a cohesive team, communicate expectations, and hold employees accountable?

How would the workplace be different if leaders and employees knew how to engage in healthy conflict? How would your organization change when the teams that compose it become cohesive?

Leadership training and coaching are my expertise.

I work from a place of reality where leadership skills are nothing close to “soft skills.”

The Get REAL program combines interactive on-site training, group performance coaching, and individual accountability coaching. The program is composed of four key modules, Release, Evaluate, Acknowledge, and Lead, which break down leadership principles into manageable sessions.

CEOs, HR directors, training managers, and event coordinators hire me to bring fresh leadership principles to forward thinking businesses and organizations.

My speaking and training styles are bold, based on research, and designed to inspire leaders to exchange an outdated management style for a vision for courageous leadership.

Are you ready to transform your workplace?

Get REAL About Your Leadership Skills

This highly engaging, proprietary training and coaching program is based on years of research. The content draws on the work of experts like Brené Brown, Cy Wakeman, John G. Miller, and Patrick Lencioni.

The modular design of the program allows you to put into practice key learning points from each session: Release, Evaluate, Acknowledge, and Lead.

The Everything DiSC®: Work of Leaders assessment is a prerequisite to the program and will be used throughout the modules. Once completed, the participants are prepared for real transformation in their leadership style and skills.

Module 1: Release

Releasing ego, judgement, and the “open door policy” lays the foundation of this exclusive program.

Module 2: Evaluate

Evaluating self and others helps get to the heart of leadership development. This requires vulnerability and courage.

Module 3: Acknowledge

Acknowledging employees for the ideas, contributions, and value they bring to the organization builds on their motivation and responsiveness to your leadership.

Module 4: Lead

Leading with integrity from the heart and head establishes and maintains trust with employees and peers.
