Quieting your Inner Critic and Moving Beyond Self-Doubt  <<-- Click Here

Imagine what you’d be doing if that voice saying, “I’m not ready yet” or, “I’m not sure if I’m qualified to do that” were no longer present. Imagine what women around the world would be doing if we were able to quiet our inner critics. Using coaching experience and self-reflection exercises, leadership expert Tara Mohr will instruct participants through issues of self-doubt and practical applications to overcome it. This interactive web session will act as the Inner Critic 101 training that all women and girls should receive, so that self-doubt is no longer an oppressive force in our lives, so that it no longer holds us back from playing big.

Strategic Leadership 201: Clarifying Roles to Improve Execution  <<-- Click Here

Holding people accountable in a manner that is perceived to be fair can be a difficult task. People often resist being held accountable out of fear of being unfairly blamed for things. Leaders often resist holding others accountable out of fear of having difficult conversations.  As a result, supposedly agreed upon tasks are not executed properly, but little or nothing is done to solve the problem of accountability.

Strategic Leadership 202: Making Conflict Productive  <<-- Click Here

Most people hate conflict, especially in the workplace. Typically, people respond to conflict in one of two ways. They either avoid it (often called “flight”) or battle it out (often called “fight”). But, there is a third option – to engage in healthy debate. Making conflict productive is not about getting rid of conflict.  Conflict is inevitable. For example, one person on a team may be given the task of keeping costs down while another has the task of making sure products meet all regulations and safety requirements.  It would not be unusual for these two people to be in conflict. Although these two people may experience the conflict as personal, some of the conflict is built into their roles.  The goal is to have a reasonable discussion on the sources of the conflict and to figure out together, what can be done to resolve the conflict, or at least lessen the tension. This webinar is not about making conflict go away. It is about how to manage it in a productive way.

What's Your Pitch? Mastering Your Transition Narrative <<-- Click Here

Being able to pitch yourself or your ideas well is critical in business. Never is your pitch more important than when you are in transition – trying to move to the next level, desiring to enter the workforce after a career break, wanting to change industries or getting your first job out of college. You’ve got to have a compelling pitch and career narrative that is memorable, connects the dots, and positions you well, even if you are missing some of the qualifications for the transition you want to make. This talk will show you how to master the art of the pitch and give you tools for making memorable, persuasive pitches, whether you are pitching yourself for a new job, promotion, career change or other situation.

Integrating Work and Life: Yes! You can have it all <<-- Click Here

Forget balance: we need to integrate work and life. Finding the right work-life integration is crucial for a leader to achieve peak performance and deliver needed results. As your impact and influence grow, so do the demands on your time. As a result, it’s important to carve out space for family, friends and even yourself, in order to recharge and renew – otherwise happiness, health and performance may suffer. In this session, we will help you examine the underlying assumptions that make work-life a perceived “either/or” choice.
