How to bring out the brave in your team
Research shows that 85% of workers report feeling unable to raise an issue or concern with their bosses, even when they believe the issue is important. This is a serious problem. Apprehension stymies innovation, progress, learning, and growth. In this workshop, we introduce the concept of psychological safety and give leaders the tools to increase the likelihood of their team speaking up, sharing ideas, giving feedback, and admitting mistakes. We’ll explore what leaders can do to set expectations, provide motivation, model behavior, set up team norms and rituals, express gratitude, and destigmatize failure. Participants will leave this workshop with the tools to create brave spaces and bring out the best in their team.
Overcome your apprehension and learn to love negotiating
According to a recent study, a large number of people would prefer to eat live bugs than negotiate at work. Yet, as scary as negotiation may be, it’s something many of us must do daily (internally and externally). This workshop is designed to give people the tools to overcome their apprehension and learn to love negotiations. That’s right, love them! Together, we'll explore different negotiation styles, how to prepare for a negotiation, the building blocks of rapport and influence, and specific tactics to negotiate more effectively. Through practice, participants will leave this workshop feeling justifiably confident and prepared to handle difficult negotiations.
* No live bugs will be eaten in this workshop

Why do we need courage at work? Research shows that courage isn't just a job requirement for firefighters and soldiers, but for anyone working in a complex, ever-changing, and interdependent environment.

In this workshop, you'll learn techniques, born of timeless wisdom and modern science, to summon your courage in the face of your fears. These include a risk audit, values check, emotion regulation practices, goal-setting, and after-action reviews.
