Leaders

Whether guiding your team to meet annual goals while under staffed, initiating change in roles and responsibilities with your colleagues, or speaking publicly to influence community constituents to meet new state or federal mandates, a government leaders’ role has become increasingly challenging as it expands in scope every year. What are the skills and behaviours of successfully articulating your messages, rallying others around your vision or action plans and insuring results upon implementation?

As a facilitator, trainer, and consultant to government leaders for over 12 years, I’ve worked with many to guide their staffs and constituents to cultivate respectful communications, mediate conflict, improve team and community trust, accountability, and manage performance in their workplaces in multiple municipalities.

Author of The Engaging Expert: a Field Book for Occasional Speakers and Accidental Trainers and the upcoming Tools for Inspiring Audiences, I’ve recently focused on helping over 500 leaders, trainers, and speakers practice skills in engaging audiences while motivating immediate action! Using best practices in designing a compelling message to delivering insanely motivating presentations is the focus of customized workshops, peer and individual coaching sessions.
