The  4 Cs
Of Leadership


Effective leadership utilizes four elements—the 4 Cs of Leadership—which each build upon the other: character, communication, compromise, and collaboration. Participants actively shape their understanding of these four essential elements and their interconnectedness while exploring their application and benefit in their work and lives.

Every Leadership Problem's
A Teaching Problem

Few leaders fully grasp the fundamental connection between teaching and leading. In fact, there is little distinction between the effective leader and the effective teacher. In this in-depth discussion, participants explore the many qualities of great leaders and great teachers as well as how they relate and can be applied.

The Rules
Of Engagement


Clear communication is one of the most important tools in the leader’s tool bag, and the best communicators are engaging communicators. Whether engaging people in meetings, audiences, networks, or individually, the basics are the same. Participants learn these fundamentals and how to utilize them in most every situation.
