Program Topics

Your Leadership Success Formula
With the increase in competition and changes in the workplace, the key to good leadership practices now requires a clear understanding of human behavior.

Through this program managers will learn their own behavior style while they also receive a picture of the style of the people they have to have to manage and lead. This information will allow them to better relate to and motivate their subordinates to greater levels of success.

Speeding To Effective Time Mastery
With the complexities of the business world today, there never seems to be enough time to accomplish everything we need to do.

Through this program leaders will discover their own time management strengths and weaknesses leading to the development of a personal, effective time management strategy.

Managing Leadership Stress
Time pressures, people pressures, and bottom line pressures all add to the level of stress leaders have to deal with today.

This program focuses on giving leaders the techniques and abilities to take charge of the stressful situations they encounter in the workplace.

Techniques include immediate ways to energize.

Increasing Your Leadership Power
to New Levels of Excellence

Have you ever had a negative day as a leader? How did you feel at the end of it? Tired, drained... Now, have you ever had a positive day as a leader? How did you feel at the end of it? Energized. Isn't there an increase in your productivity, effectiveness and bottom line on that positive day? You can have that outcome everyday! What would that do to your abilities and successes as a leader?

In this highly interactive program, Amazon bestselling author and top rated speaker Dr. Jerry V. Teplitz will show you how to make every day that way through actual tools and techniques that will increase your energy level resulting in more effective leadership capabilities.

Creating New Dimensions of Leadership
As organizations become flatter and more team oriented it becomes even more crucial to understand what leadership is since a leader can be anything from the charismatic visionary to the unassuming team player.

This seminar will allow participants to discover what they value in themselves as a leader, the dimensions of leadership needed by their organization, and how to combine the two.

Increasing Your Brain's Performance for Greater Leadership Success
This leadership development program is for individuals who are responsible for creating a more effective and dynamic organization. The seminar provides a method for personal
brain re-engineering, which enables you as a leader to adapt quickly and successfully to a changing environment.

The personal technology used to accomplish this goal is a researched based process of using specific movement exercises to access your untapped brain capabilities. This allows what was difficult for you to do as a leader to become easy to do in minutes.

This program will strengthen the leadership skills you already have and give you the mental agility to add to your skills with surprising ease and level of confidence.
