Training and Workshop Descriptions

Command the Room
How to develop a public speaking style that earns respect and produces results
As an executive, business acumen and experience are expected. Your ability to speak influentially distinguishes you from the crowd and positions you as a capable leader.

During the Command the Room program, participants will hear the good news; that we are not born great speakers, rather we learn. Anybody can become a skillful speaker with desire and the right process to follow. Specifically you will discover how to:

  • Create content that connects with your audience and results in buy-in
  • Present your material with clarity, simplicity, and focus
  • Engage your audience and build momentum
  • Identify and speak from your natural, most compelling style
  • Manage your energy, calm your tension, and handle questions in a consultative manner
  • Move even higher from skilled speaker to “superstar” performance

Offered as one full day with a follow-up Coaching Component* recommended.

Strategic Negotiating for Leaders
How to achieve success at the table by creating win-win solutions

As an executive, whether you are negotiating with customers and suppliers, or persuading board members and other divisions to follow your lead, in order to get the results that you want, you have to be able to effectively negotiate in ways that create a win-win for both parties.

Strategic Negotiating for Leaders is built around the belief that an integral part of negotiating is developing well-planned strategies to reach agreements that build and maintain relationships. Both parties have to feel that they have won. During this training, participants will learn to:

  • Assess the negotiating situation
  • Plan, prepare, and conduct all aspects of the negotiation
  • Recognize, anticipate, and handle/diffuse negotiating tactics
  • Identify individual interests and adapt and adjust to achieve win-win results
  • Move past a stalemate and use strategies to compromise
  • Leverage the outcome for stronger working relationships going forward

Offered as one full day.

Meeting Facilitation for Leaders
How to lead meetings that foster teamwork and produce powerful results

Any group work effort requires people to meet together over a period of time. The reality is that meetings can produce rich results or they can be a terrible waste of resources. The time of every individual involved is valuable and costly. Leaders recognize the tremendous amount of firepower at their disposal when gathering people together and they master the art of planning and facilitating meetings that maximize opportunities. During Meeting Facilitation for Leaders, participants will learn to:

  • Plan and execute effective meetings
  • Prepare an agenda that keeps the meeting on track
  • Encourage participation, debate, and ultimately consensus
  • Bring out the strengths in participants
  • Manage difficult personalities
  • Listen and integrate ideas
  • Create accountability
  • Build teamwork

Offered as one-half day

Stake Your Claim
How to position yourself as a senior leader and create your professional destiny

Do you know what you want? Can you see your career at its peak? Are you ready to make your move?

Your professional success is not based on luck. It has everything to do with your ability to clearly define and commit to what you want and then to orchestrate the progress necessary to get there. Consistent, focused, and inspired action creates desired results. The reality is that both you and your organization prosper when you take charge of your professional growth.

But what is the specific action that prepares you for breakout performance and separates you from the pack? During this program, April Goyer will reveal five difference makers that —when mastered— define you as a powerful, effective, and relevant leader.

  • Create the mindset for succeeding at the highest levels
  • Develop a speaking style that commands attention and produces results
  • Demonstrate a leadership presence that brings out the best in people
  • Build a compelling case for your business initiatives and deliver a strong ROI
  • Think and perform with the power and precision of an athlete

Offered as one full day with a follow-up Coaching Component* recommended.

Hit Reset
How to insure that you stay on top of your professional game

These are challenging times. Are you just hanging in there or are you thriving in your professional position? As a leader are you settling for survival or recalibrating yourself and your management approach?

Regardless of what is going on around you in your immediate position, your organization, or the greater economy, you determine your response and therefore your experience. Fine-tune the assets at your disposal and you impact your career and your organization in profound ways.

During this program, April Goyer will speak frankly about focusing your time, energy, and efforts where you have true control: by upping your professional game from the inside out.

  • Choose to be extraordinary and embrace the skills that will get you there
  • Upgrade your compelling vision for your career and use it as a guide to stay on track
  • Become an expert in your company’s culture and weave in your own brand
  • Expand your universe by leveraging high yield connections
  • Refine your strategic planning process until you get “real” results
