About the Presentation - On Fire Leadership
Some leaders are ON FIRE!
You can just see it in their eyes, their approach and in their actions. They come to work with a spark that sets the standard; the tone for the day, or the project and we wonder, “…where do they get that energy and ability?” Maybe they just love their work? It’s more than that – that spark appears when high level skill meets passion.
To be an “On Fire” leader, one must navigate through seemingly endless project conflicts that will require inspiring leadership, sound negotiation skills and the application of a heightened level of emotional intelligence. Understanding how to better manage projects by using conflict will empower participants to approach both work and relationships differently.
This presentation will do more that motivate you; it will provide actionable skills that you can use immediately to improve your personal and professional lives. You will leave with new tools to improve your collaboration skills, build and maintain high performance teams, foster and sustain professional relationships, and add increased value to any organization.
