Workshop events/training

Join us for a unique opportunity to deep-dive into what leadership means in the chief of staff role.

Between globalization, the increasing pace of technological advances, and increased regulation, a lot is being asked of board members, C-suite execs, and chiefs of staff. The rules are constantly changing, so  what does it take to keep up? It takes capacities that you might or might not have picked up en route to the role. You have to not only understand the executive’s world to sit in that space, but practice the application of that knowledge. You’ve got to understand your own leadership and influence, you’ve got to think strategically and systematically, and you’ve got to have effective relationships. Today’s cutting edge leaders make time for development. This is about prioritizing your own development, having a safe space to wrestle through what you need to, practice what you need to, ask and be asked the incisive, powerful questions that stretch you. It’s about having an intention and identifying options for achieving that outcome.  These workshops are helping people at the so-called right hand of power in many business, academic, nonprofit, and gov’t organizations be the leaders they were hired into this role to be, and to launch from the chief of staff role into bigger, more visible leadership roles where they can make even more impact.

Chief of Staff workshops and training reduces your learning curve in the role and extends your influence and leadership brand.
