A Simple Path to Powerful Leadership

Managers and leaders find themselves stuck in three vicious circles. They’re frustrated by teams who have become overly dependent on them. They’re overwhelmed by the amount of work they have to do. And they’re disconnected from their own great work - the work that has impact, the work that has meaning.

Sound familiar?

Breaking out of these vicious circles is simpler than you might think.

Mastering five essential questions can help managers and leaders increase the focus, courage and resilience they need to have more impact in the work they do.

What You Will Learn

In this practical, interactive and engaging webcast, you will:
  • Discover the three vicious circles that keep managers – and their teams – stuck
  • Understand how breaking out of these circles can help them work less hard and have more impact
  • Learn the five core questions they need so they (and those they lead) can focus on the work that matters
  • Hear the best coaching question in the world (and it has just three words)

Participants will not only leave with a plan to do things differently, but will also get access to a special Box of Crayons report: Four Surprising Phrases to Supercharge Your Conversation and Boost Your Manager IQ.

This webcast is based on Michael Bungay Stanier’s acclaimed book The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More & Change the Way You Lead Forever. While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
