As leaders, we are often put on the spot and asked questions that we aren’t always prepared to answer, or feel we can’t answer in the best way without ample time to prepare a good response. Even if we are quick thinkers and are able to pick up and process new ideas quickly, we aren’t always able to respond as quickly as we’d like to. Sometimes it’s because we aren’t ready to release information, or it’s simply because we don’t have the answer at the time. As leaders, everyone has worked hard to establish themselves as trustworthy, transparent, and knowledgeable and it is important that we do all we can to maintain that. Preparing yourself to think and respond quickly is a key tool for leaders, and it can be a learned and improved-upon skill that will help you convey confidence when you’re caught off guard. In this course you will learn how to think and respond quickly with excellent responses and renewed confidence.
As more and more organizations transition to remote work, virtual experiences are becoming the norm.

Key steps and practices can help you get the most out of your next virtual meeting. In this course you will learn how to facilitate virtual meetings to ensure objectives are met and there is full participation and engagement by all meeting attendees.
The ability to influence, impact, and inspire progress is the hallmark of a strong leader. Mastering key communication skills allows you to speak effectively and be heard. It allows you to develop genuine and meaningful relationships with key players in your organization.

Being able to initiate change and inspire your peers are key behaviours to develop for the modern workplace.

According to coaching expert Sir John Whitmore, the definition of coaching is ‘unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” Many of you may also have heard of the common saying by the philosopher Maimonides that says: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” I love that quote. If you want an even simpler definition of coaching consider that coaching is making someone better. When you are coaching for performance, approaching it from a learning perspective for the employee will reap far greater benefits than simply telling them what to do or, worse, doing it for them. When done right, great coaching will increase employee engagement along with performance and productivity. In this course you will learn how to coach others for increased performance and engagement.
Cooperation, collaboration, and compromise. The ability to work cross-functionally with multiple parties is essential to business success.

In this course you will learn how to negotiate in a confident manner so that you are satisfied with the results.
When we see ourselves as we truly are, we are more confident and more creative; we make better decisions and communicate more effectively; and we’re better and more effective coaches. Carl Jung said “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” Outcomes of this course:
Difficult conversations are part of managing a team of different people, with different needs and personalities. To become effective leaders, we need to develop strong communication skills.

When you hear “debate”, you may picture a formal event with two opposing parties standing at podiums in front of an audience, presenting carefully crafted arguments and rebuttals. Informal debate occurs in everyday life and work, too. How often do you find yourself in a disagreement, difference of opinion, or argument with someone else? When you try to make someone see your point of view, and they are trying to make you see theirs, you’re in a debate. In this course you will learn how to debate to ensure your verbal points are clear, well understood and influential.
