Program Description:

Too often, we are sleepwalking through our days, careers and relationships.  We are not intentionally engaged and inspired, and that leads us to not be engaging and inspiring for our people.  Our companies, co-workers and critical relationships need us; the time is now to step up and lead BOLDly!

In this workshop, you will discover the reasons BOLD leadership is imperative in today’s work environment. You will learn what being a BOLD leader truly means and learn the four critical skills and behaviors that BOLD Leaders develop and demonstrate better than others. You will also learn what may be getting in your way from leading BOLDly and what you can do to quickly address these roadblocks.  This outlook will change the way you think about your role as a leader and put you on a path to greater success and fulfillment at work and in life.
Key Takeaways:

  • What “BOLD” leadership is, what it takes to lead boldly, and the importance of bold leadership is in today’s business environment.
  • What prevents us from leading more boldly today, and how you can overcome these.
  • The four key behaviors bold leaders demonstrate and practical steps to apply them.
  • Roadmap to begin demonstrating key behaviors in a thoughtful, measured and effective way.
