Lead The Ship

Enhancing “Leadership” Skills & Transformational Leadership!

“Leadership is not a position. You are not a leader because you have the title of manager. Leadership is something that we earn from followers on a daily basis.” (Arnold H. Glasow).

Great leaders move us. They ignite our passion and inspire the best in us. When we try to explain why they are so effective, we speak of strategy, vision, or powerful ideas. Leadership is getting things done through people. It is the art and process of influencing other people to achieve a vision and a set of common goals. Great leaders teach and coach others to be leaders.

During this extensive 3 day workshop workshop, participants use hands-on activities, case studies, and their own experience to define their values and vision for the future. The activities and group problem solving lead to the formation of a highly energized and united team. Participants return to their workplace highly motivated and with an action plan to use their increased skills and to implement their vision.
