WHY CAN’T YOU DO WHAT I’M THINKING? (POSTPONED)
Leadership, Management, and Coaching

Workshop objectives include:
- Understanding when your employees need leadership, management, or coaching
- Bringing a coaching culture into your workplace within a management structure
- Creating transformational leaders out of emerging executives
(FULL) SEPTEMBER 13 - FAILING TO PLAN IS PLANNING TO FAIL
Strategic Planning That Makes Sense For You
In our perpetually over-scheduled work lives, looking ahead is often overlooked. We know we should be keeping up with regional and industry news and planning for the future, but time is precious and today takes precedence over tomorrow. This session will provide dedicated time for discussion on how to bring successful strategic planning to your company, organization, or team while also creating a culture of expecting the unexpected.
Workshop objectives include:
- Review of philosophies of strategic planning
- Understanding the people and process of successful strategic planning
- Create framework for development of goals and action items related to strategic planning
DECEMBER 6 - CLARIFYING YOUR MESSAGE: HOW THE POWER OF A STORY CAN GROW YOUR NONPROFIT
(FREE) Most leaders, marketers, salespeople and managers are ignored. It’s not because they aren’t smart, hard-working or likeable; it’s because they aren’t communicating clearly. 5 Stones helps companies understand what customers are looking for so they can tell their story in such a way people listen. The human brain is drawn to CLARITY and away from confusion. If customers are confused about what you offer, they’ll look past you for somebody who can say it clearly. Once you clarify your message, your company will begin to grow!
