Workshop Goals and Objectives

To help participants participants learn how transformational leadership is relevant to business outcomes and learn how affect and decision making are relevant to solving problems as leaders.

Expected Outcomes

  • Improved capability to make good decisions when faced with uncertainty at work
  • Insight into values, behaviors and practices transformational leaders with sound judgement live by
  • Knowledgeable about tools available to support with developing one’s own transformational leadership and decision-making capability


The decisions leaders make every day define who they are. In this workshop you will learn to lead as a role model, personifying integrity, courage, and healthy values, and inspiring trust in team members, followers, and management. You will also learn to become an effective problem solver, able to make competent decisions dealing with everyday events and providing intellectual stimulation to others. Participants will have the option to take a leadership competence assessment prior to attending the workshop, and receive a one-hour one-on-one coaching session to review results and create a personal development plan.
