Most individuals will not admit to their fears about leading and leadership. Most fears include trying to please everyone, making the wrong decisions, and avoiding conflict. Thus by participating in this one hour workshop, your participants will gain leadership development or how to become a better leader, and no longer endure those fears. As a 28-year, retired NYC Fire Department Captain, I learned through the school of hard knocks that provided me with the expertise to teach Self-Improvement and Leadership today successfully. I even founded The Leadership Mastery Academy, an online platform where I discuss Leadership and Self-Improvement because as I often say, "a paradigm shift is occurring today around the way we see Self-Improvement and Leadership." Individuals are realizing without it we can not succeed. Therefore, I designed the following talk. The Talk includes: 1.Highly Effective Habits of an Influential Leader (5-7 min intro). 2. Self-improvement and Leadership Development: Leadership Starts With You (12-15 mins). I discuss Mindsets, Productivity,Time Management/Time Wasters, Daily Successful Habits and Goals. I perform an exercise on assessing and developing the right mindset. 3. 4 Pitfalls of Leadership (12-15 mins). This topic focuses on Conflict and Conflict Resolution 4. Emotional Intelligence: The Main Component to Leadership (12-15 mins) 5. Conclusion: Q & A Session The final outcome participants become a better Leader with outstanding Leadership Skills. If these topics do not interest you, I can customized the workshop to what you desire.
