Our conversations opened new avenues to other opportunities and alternate paths and resulted in a deeper understanding of my current and potential work value.

Workshop & Assessments
Workshop: Active Listening
Listening is a leadership responsibility and often doesn’t appear in our job descriptions. As our careers develop, we perfect our craft and ultimately become the experts in our field, having all the answers, and then we migrate to leading teams, managing and directing them. As leaders, we must balance our intensity and desire to perform with compassionate attention to our employees and those we work with. Today’s employees want their voices heard. What they are really saying is, not just hear them, but really listen to them. As employees seek more attention, feedback and support, leaders must be mindful of each employee’s individual needs to inspire their professional development and impact their overall professional performance. Statistics show that leaders who actively listen are able to create trustworthy relationships that are transparent and loyal – leading to a more engaged and motivated workforce. In this workshop you will learn the six skills of active listening, why they are important to your success as a leader, and how to make active listening a part of every conversation. Leaders who embrace the high art of listening are destined to be more successfully compassionate leaders.
What you will learn:
- Thorough understanding of the value that active listening brings to the conversation and why leaders need to be good at it to be successful
- Neuroscience and the brain
- Six Active Listening skills to help you get started (and a chance to practice a few of them)
- Tools to use as you develop and improve your listening skills
Values Assessment helps you identify your “Why”. When you are clear about what your values are, it is easy to understand your drivers and motivations for doing things. You can actively build your decisions, actions, and vision for a better you, a better career or life around them. Through a facilitated process, you will discover knowing your values can act as your compass to help give direction to what, how and why you do what you do every day.
Career & Life Wheel Commonly used by professional life & career coaches, it helps you consider each area of your life or work and assess where you are at. It helps you identify where you would like to give priority and areas that need more attention. The Wheel is a powerful tool to give you a vivid visual representation of the way your life or work is currently, compared to what you’d ideally like it to be. Our professionally certified coaches can help you identify gaps in the wheel, and map out action plans to get you where you want or need to be.
