Descriptions for each session are listed below:

Dare to Lead (Book Study)

October 28, 2021

In book study format, participants will discover and discuss in whole group and small team discussions ideas on how to build courage in the workplace.  Renowned research professor Brene’ Brown has spent the past two decades studying courage and vulnerability.  She has found that both leaders and teams face serious problems in their ability to display vulnerability at work; instead, they sabotage themselves, killing innovation and creativity.  In this book she discusses owning your fears, choosing courage over comfort, whole hearts over armor, and building an organizational culture based on bravery.

A few weeks prior to the session, you will be receiving the book Dare to Lead, by Brené Brown, to prepare for your participation. 

The Speed of Trust (Book Study)

December 1, 2021

Trust is more relevant now than ever before—it is truly the new currency of our society. In The Speed of Trust Stephen M. R. Covey, widely known as one of the world’s leading authorities on trust, asserts that it is “the most overlooked, misunderstood, underutilized asset to enable performance. Its impact, for good or bad, is dramatic and pervasive. It’s something you can’t escape.” Thankfully, it is also the thing that can dramatically improve your personal and professional success.  In book study format, participants will discuss in small teams how trust functions in every transaction and every relationship—from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction—and will be inspired to improve in this area for greater effectiveness as a leader.  

A few weeks prior to the session, you will be receiving the book The Speed of Trust, by Stephen M. R. Covey, to prepare for your participation. 

Leading People Through Change

March 10, 2022

This session is designed to improve the senior leader’s effectiveness in both change management and change leadership.  It will include a study of how the content in specific sections of the book Leaders Eat Last specifically impacts change efforts.  Unfortunately, many employees suffer when leaders fail to understand the stages employees go through during a change.  The simple truth is that understanding these stages leads to faster and more effective change efforts.  Focusing on communication, collaboration, and commitment helps to insure that your senior leadership team, middle-level leaders, and the wider district organization are fully aligned with your change efforts, thereby yielding the results that matter.

A few weeks prior to the session, you will be receiving the book Leaders Eat Last, by Simon Sinek, to prepare for your participation.
