Leading from Wholeness
The Arts of Convening and Emotional Intelligence

Being a "whole" leader calls on every aspect of our selves. It calls us to find the courage to bring all of who we are into everything we do: the brilliant parts, the messy parts, the parts we hide and the traits we feel most proud of. 

Following on the insights gleaned from the 16pf® Assessment, we will establish the crucial roles of Convening and Emotional Intelligence (Connect to Lead) and Conversational Intelligence (why who we are when we lead matters). We will explore the reservoir of wisdom and information always accessible that includes and expands beyond traditional intellectual capacities.

Building Trust

Trust is critical to effective leadership at all levels and with all customers. Understanding how you developed your trust style is critical to identifying how you encourage trustworthiness in others.

Leading in diverse organizations has unique trust challenges and opportunities. We will explore the building blocks of building trust, for yourself first, and then for those you work with and serve.

1. Understanding the key elements of trust (in ourselves and others)

2. Learning how trust is vital to achieve authentic engagement
