The Essence of
Courageous Leadership

We work to create a program that offers balance between our skills and your needs. In these workshops we will create many opportunities for enhanced communications within the individual teams in your employ, which will in turn allow for an increase in the cooperation between the teams.

The result will be smoother relations, increased cooperation and synergy, greater productivity, more empathetic communication, bolder and courageous decisions, a better understanding of emotional intelligence, and improved morale.

  • Improve Communication, Self-Esteem and Trust
  • Empowered Goals and Visions
  • Creating Cooperation with Synergy
  • DISC Leadership & Personality Profiles
  • Improving Empathy and Emotional Intelligence

We utilize some common and many not so common elements to achieve tremendous results in a very short amount of time. We play experiential games, we role-play, we create simulations and then debrief after each element to allow for better integration of the ideas and concepts experienced. We use Superlearning Techniques, which engage both sides of the brain for optimum learning and retention. This creates improved short-term results, easier integration and sustainability with their daily responsibilities.

Below are 8 examples of the paradigms we believe are critical for any team to achieve and sustain High Performance results

Time after time, project after project! We also have tailored coaching for the existing and ascending leadership and how to get more out of their direct reports and the teams they are on or lead.


We give a new definition of courage and what it takes to be a courageous leader. Be Bold and stand up for what is right. We help participants find their true self and stand in their power and hold their integrity.


We help leaders learn how to access their compassion for others and create a cycle of empathy versus a cycle of ego. We give them tools to use to really hear each other and go behind the words to help build trust with each other. This also helps them to become more self-aware of their nonverbal and verbal communication and it impacts others.

fade-leftfade-rightEffective Communication & Listening skills

A great leader has great listening skills and we teach through several games how to listen better and give techniques on how to listen and identify the many blocks of listening that most people use in communication.

fade-leftfade-rightEmotional Intelligence:

Fight, Flight or Freeze responses are generated from our past experience and can be relearned to respond instead of react the same way we always have in a stressful situation. These are learned responses and we help leaders “unlearn” their past and learn how to respond in  different ways. We help develop skills for controlling and managing overwhelming stress and thereby becoming a more effective communicator and leader.

fade-leftfade-rightPersonal Responsibility

This paradigm separates behaviors and thought patterns into 2 categories

  • Below the Line – Shame, Guilt, Laying Blame, and Justification
  • Above the Line – Responsibility

The conscious ability to respond to any circumstance or event from the point of view of, “How am I personally going to respond to this opportunity in this moment?  What can I learn from it?  How can I correct it or improve it?  What role do I have creating this?  What is the best and most effective response I can offer at this time?” We give tools on how to respond instead of react. We show them how below the line behavior wastes time and nothing changes.


We play a simulation that validates with data to each participant that 100% of the time a team will always outperform the results of a group of individuals. We introduce the term “Synergy” and we cover many insights about the differences in behaviors and results achieved between individuals, groups, teams and High Performance “Championship” Teams.

fade-leftfade-rightScotomas-Natural Blindspots

The exercises we use demonstrate consistently, that there are some things that are obvious to one department but not obvious to others.  Everyone has hidden scotomas (blind spots) in their lives, at work and at home.  These exercises help to reach a better understanding of other people’s points of view.

fade-leftfade-rightTrust and Cooperation

We give a new definition of courage and what it takes to be a courageous leader. Be Bold and stand up for what is right. We help participants find their true self and stand in their power and hold their integrity.

In addition to exploring these paradigms above in depth, we also include:
