This is for Serious Leaders!

I gained incredible skills which helped me find the courage to be more transparent during conflicts and surface issues that lead to constructive conversations rather than dancing around difficult topics.

You May Be Thinking…

How can I afford this?
I used to think a program like this was too expensive, until I counted up the financial cost of all the lost productivity, damaged work relationships, and the overwhelming stress I brought home each day. I realized I was worth investing in so I could be a far more effective leader and mentor in the workplace. Not to mention how I’ve seen people’s careers take off when they learn and implement these so-called soft skills.

Will this work for me?
I never thought I could learn how to stay centered and respond effectively during triggering, difficult situations. I only had two speeds during conflict: flight and freeze. I thought I was progressing when I got a third speed, fight. But when I fought, I only succeeded in escalating the dysfunction and damaging my work relationships! Over time I developed far greater capacity to stay present when I felt triggered and use these tools and tactics to navigate challenging situations far more effectively. Once I learned how to do it myself, I could easily teach others how to do it for themselves. I moved off the sidelines and into the game.

Am I ready?
If you’re wondering if you’re ready for this level of development, I have one question for you: Do people come to you for advice and seek you out if they are feeling stuck and frustrated? If so, they seem to think you are ready to help them out.

How much is it costing you, your colleagues, and your organization to not resolve these toxic, difficult situations?

Can you imagine the benefits if most people in your organization had the tools and skills to resolve workplace conflicts before they escalated out of control? To create more inclusive work environments where everyone truly feels valued and respected?

How do I know this is the right program for me?
This program is not for everyone. If you’re interested in deepening your capacity to help others resolve difficult situations, but not sure this program is for you,
you can sign-up for a call with me and I will be glad to explore all your questions and concerns.
