    Navigational Leadership & Influential Conversations

    The Navigational Leadership & Influential Conversations program is a proven, straight-forward and highly effective 3-day workshop designed to help leaders unlock potential and engagement in others.

    Navigational Leadership is about guiding and developing versus telling. The Navigational Leadership (developmental leader as coach) program equips leaders with easy-to-apply tools that guide others toward success, toward greater levels of job satisfaction and toward higher levels of personal and professional potential. The “navigation” analogy clarifies core coaching principles and process in a way that is both enjoyable and memorable.

    This Influential Conversations component (final day of this 3-day workshop) drives tactics to discover WHO the person is and how they show up in the workplace. People with influence are genuinely interested in other people. They behave respectfully towards all and appear to have some “magic powers” to get others involved. They seem so genuine that you just can’t help but like them even if you don’t want to. They are able to get your trust quickly, and build a relationship with you based on that trust.  This workshop helps leaders build influence that matters.
