  • Facilitating Effective Meetings (LD058) Ineffective meetings are a tremendous waste of time and resources. To ensure that meetings have greater value and produce tangible results, they must be skillfully planned and executed. In this workshop participants will learn how to set more effective meeting goals, develop best practice agendas, encourage participation, and facilitate difficult group dynamics.


  • Organizational Development Toolkit: Aligning the Organization for Results (LD053) Systemic workplace alignment provides a clear path to ensuring your workplace gets aligned to any goal, initiative, or project. Workplaces out of alignment suffer from priority conflicts, resource confusion, lack of decision making, project overruns, and silos. When problems occur, most forget to think at a higher level and therefore tend to blame individuals or departments for any tension in their organization. In this workshop, you will learn how to think systemically, apply such thinking to current workplace challenges, and create strategies for success.
