Three-Dimensional (3D) Leadership with Traci Duez-CANCELLED


Topics: Leadership Development | Communication and Presentation Skills | Motivation | Leading Project Teams

Have you ever had a leader who learned the tips and techniques of what to do to lead better but how they used those techniques left you feeling manipulated rather than led? It often happens because most instructors of leadership teach you what to do but not how to do it. In this course you will learn the what and the how of leading in all three dimensions - head, hands, and heart. 

Leadership isn't only about changing behaviors (hands). Exceptional leaders also know how to transform hearts and minds. In this course, you will discover how the best leaders embrace emotions as a tool, how to use story to touch hearts. You will learn the T.E.A.R. model of motivation and change. You will take an assessment that measures all three dimensions of your life and learn how to use your best talents and attributes to become a more effective and authentic leader.

Participants will be required to complete a 3-part assessment prior to the workshop. The cost of this assessment is $125 and is included in your seminar fee. The assessment cost is non-refundable.
