The Being & Doing of Leadership: We will explore the habits and characteristics of a systems leader, specifically we will look at how you as a systems leader needs to be and what you need to do. An inventory of your strengths and challenges will assist you in identifying the gaps- and for developing an action plan.

Change Your Mind, Change Your Result: We will introduce concepts and tools used by systems leaders, including lenses that allow systems leaders to apply systems thinking in their day to day work.

You will build your capacity as a systems leader to connect each individual team member’s personal vision with the organizational vision to create engagement,  productivity and inspiration in your workplace. 

Building Relationship: The focus of this session is on building relationships and your coaching capacity. We will explore a coaching philosophy, approach and tools that align with a systems leader’s ways of being and doing. 

Managing Change: We will explore change within the system leaders realm.  We will review some change frameworks, apply them to a current change initiative, and ways to lead in a non-stop continuous environment of change.
