LEADERSHIP WORKSHOPS

_______________

North Rock Leadership workshops are bite-sized programs aimed at providing actionable skills and best practices based on our professional experiences, current research, and the science of the mind to authentically and sustainably improve your performance inside and outside of work. Not a one-and-done type program.

 

1. OWN YOUR TIME — DON’T LET TIME OWN YOU

Everyone struggles with time management. Time management is both an art and a science. Poor time management leads to missed goals, stress, poor quality work and most importantly an imbalance between work and life. Pervasive technology has also created additional interruptions that pull us off task. Through research, interviews with executives and my experiences during 30 years in the corporate world I have distilled down 10 achievable best time management practices. Workshop includes; prioritization skills, routine development, delegation strategies and other time management silks designed to free up time to pursue what is important and meaningful to you.

2. CULTIVATING GOOD HABITS — PRUNING BAD ONES

Good habits can make us and bad habits can break us. Developing good habits is hard—keeping them is even harder. Studies show that success with one habit breeds success in others. This workshop provides and overview of how our brains form habits and the neurochemistry behind them. Good habits are powerful tools in transforming our lives at work and outside of work. This workshop includes; how habits are formed, common mistakes in breaking habits, how to create authentic inside out motivation, how to design your environment to make success easier and a 40-day plan for developing a new good habit.

3. UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING YOUR LIZARD BRAIN

The human brain consists of many parts. Some parts are for survival, while others for advanced thinking that no other creatures posses. Understanding and being able to detect how these works together is a key into avoid getting derailed by irrational feelings and behaviors. This understanding will lead to more self-awareness, productivity, communication and wellness. This workshop includes: Authentic motivation, The 3 pillars that actually drive action, Meet your lizard brain: How the lizard brain is simultaneously supporting and stunting your business and SIX strategies for stilling the lizard and turning change into a competitive advantage.
