Conscious Leadership Certification
Are you looking for . . .
Fresh leadership tools, rooted in mindfulness, that you can apply right away, to address the challenges of delegation, performance management and reducing triggers?
An engaging classroom experience broken into half-day classes you can fit into each month with ease?
A leg up in your succession planning so you can leap to the next level? You’ll finish the course certified as a Conscious Leader.
There will be a total of 18 connections through the year: 9 half-day classroom sessions plus 9 coaching-cohort meetings (lasting 60 minutes each with just 3 participants to maximize coaching time with Rhonda). Here is a brief description of the training modules of this Conscious Leadership Program. In each of the 9 modules we cover 2 topics. Programs can be customized to fewer than 9 modules if desired:
Essential Leadership Rituals
Rituals of time management and delegation that ensure follow-through as you shift from the doer (or subject matter expert) to the leader. Coaching skills and potent questions to empower staff.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Cultivate powerful, calm presence even when triggered by stress and change. Notice what’s really going on within you and around you as a conscious leader. Hone an ‘inner’ focus and ‘other’ focus.
Identify where staff fall in the cycle of engagement. Create a community of Vital Friends at work and ritualize face-time with staff. Build engagement with the work itself using Buckingham’s strength-based approach.
Set clear, consistent and fair expectations that grow weakness to competence + strength to excellence. Set SMART goals with staff. Create a feedback loop where you deliver and receive positive and constructive feedback with grace.
The Green Balloon Model of communication: balance clear/direct with empathetic/curious. Initiate critical conversations (brave and uncomfortable) by stepping off the drama triangle and onto the empowerment triangle.
Dealing with Differences
The role assumptions play in conflict with staff, colleagues or customers. Deal effectively with differing (and difficult) personalities, inter-generational and intercultural differences. Build strong rapport through body language.
The spectrum of Change-Resistors and Change-Champions. Deciding when and how to involve employees in change. How to lead effective meetings that people actually want to come to.
Negotiation vs Collaboration
Negotiate up, down and side-to-side on the chain of command. Collaboration, trust and respect at work. High-performance decision making and consciously choosing a style that fits the situation.
Develop an ‘outer focus’ as you secure time and space for strategy, organizational culture and mentorship. Present your ideas effectively to a group or 1-to-1 for maximum influence and engagement.
This program includes in-class practise of new skills, a robust tool-kit you take away and lively demonstrations to keep participants engaged. Rhonda will ensure you fully integrate the material, creating peer accountability and coaching opportunities in each module.
