Leadership Course Offering

Executive Summary:

A high functioning Team requires three components; intimacy, relevance and measurability agreed to by the team. Gaining proficiency in these three areas produces higher employee engagement, satisfaction and retention.

Intimacy is knowledge and relationship at a level that allows team members to fully understand approach and content in conversation as if they were speaking and listening from the other person’s perspective. Communication effectiveness grows exponentially when this is achieved.

Relevance is the understanding of the importance of job and task for the employee, the executive/owner’s family and the community. The employee knows, sees and feels who and how their job impacts on a local, national and global level. The team understands and embraces company direction and goals universally.

Measurability is beyond the intrinsic or obvious traditional requirements of the job description; and includes creative quantification of satisfaction, happiness, and personal and team validation. Goals are set and measured throughout the learning cycle.

2Eagles Training uses Patrick Lencioni’s three principles to insure a firm foundation of operation. Working through these three foundations insures synergy, cohesiveness and effectiveness.

Servant Leadership is also fundamental to the development of highly effective leaders and leadership teams. Using the time proven research and practices of John Maxwell for serving; and the work of Steven Covey for trust and effectiveness insures that trust, respect and looking out for each other, and for each other’s teams, becomes a simple daily repeatable enjoyable task.

The quintessential work of Dr. Terry Anderson’s Book, Transforming Leadership is also woven into the work of 2Eagles for team training. True leadership is the most valuable commodity in the world- yet few really know how to attain it. Transforming Leadership introduces a new style of leadership-one that blends effective business practices with compassion and awareness-to help today’s leaders develop and build what Anderson calls a “leadership organization” that will flourish in our ever-changing global marketplace.

5 modules are offered at a cost of  2,350 dollars/module/individual.

2Eagles Consulting seeks to bring teams together with deeper trust, transparency and the pursuit of truth in every conversation and transaction. Teams with these attributes in place move fast and achieve much!

Self-Leadership leads to individual and team successes

         “The higher the self awareness – the stronger the leader.” MKL

  1. The learning goal is to develop a manager/leader that is self-aware (understands who they are and what strengths and skills that they possess and are skilled at using their natural strengths. The manager is motivated, understands and embraces the organizational targets. The manager/leader owns these targets, and uses the appropriate language. WE/not they. US/not them. OURS/not theirs.

Training/education takes place during the first two months of the curriculum. The team meets together for education in their personal operating system as well as each other’s unique approach to company goals and assigned tasks.

The Personal Style Indicator (PSI) is a powerful communication and learning tool. This assessment scores natural preferences towards time, people, tasks, and situations. Participants identify their specific PSI style pattern(s), which assists them to instantly understand their strengths and potential challenges so they can be more effective at work.

Personal and interpersonal development builds effective team members and leaders

Teams fail because they don’t understand each other and they don’t communicate.” MKL

  1. The manager develops superior communication skills and awareness of others and their communication styles to open up every possibility for high-level outcomes. The manager understands and uses each individual team member’s language because he/she is fully aware of each of the team’s strengths and skills. Team members are valued for their strengths and skills and are valued for what they contribute naturally, not what they are missing. Training focuses on Leadership development. Manager’s direct reports will be included in some of the educational opportunities.

This two-month module includes both team learning/training and education on working with teams. Training will include respecting and using each other’s communication language, recognizing the key elements of a crucial conversation, and responding using the STATE model.

With crucial conversations skills the participant will learn to: prepare for high-stakes situations with a proven technique; transform anger and hurt feelings into powerful dialogue; make it safe to talk about almost anything; be persuasive, not abrasive; improve nearly every professional and personal relationship; and yield major professional improvements in areas like productivity, quality, safety, diversity, and change management.

Effective team leaders build high-performance teams

     “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” (AIW)

  1. The manager/leader insures that team members are clear about their roles and responsibilities and know where they fit in and that they own their position on the team. She/he looks for gaps in performance and creates opportunity for staff to self identify and to develop personal plans for growth and development. The manager is up to date on annual performance appraisals and uses them as opportunities for discussion, interpersonal growth and as blueprints for staff development. Employees look forward to these assessments as an opportunity for personal reflection, affirmation from their manager, and time for positive dialogue.

Training and education focus on the executive/key team members and will involve learning conflict resolution strategies as well. Potentially there may be some soft mediation delivery/communication clarification as well. This module takes place over 2 months.

High Performance teams build successful learning organizations

     “Education at its highest level is more about unlearning rather than learning.” MKL

Each participant will know where they fit into the flow of the team and how they contribute to the daily tasks. They know how and why they are there. They know that they can continually explore new opportunities and develop new efficiencies in their day-to-day roles. When learning opportunities are identified, plans are developed to increase knowledge and to further training specific to current job roles with an opportunity for advancement. Training/Education in module 4 takes place over 2 months.

Effective learning organizations build healthy communities

    “A good job is more than just a paycheque. A good job fosters independence and discipline, and contributes to the health of a community. Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.” (Paul Ryan)

  1. Daily job responsibilities are only a part of the make up of an employee. Team members become defined uniquely by who they are at home, at play and at work. Team members are highly valued in in their communities and are “above reproach”. Employees know their manager, love the company, and their team values them. They enjoy going to work, and easily maintain an excellent life/work balance. The Training/Education focuses on Team and individual evaluation and goal/role setting by manager/HR director/Trainer.

The 5 modules and all goals are visited for completion and satisfaction levels. Future planning integrates individual and team goals and the development of effective accountability tools. Training takes place over 2 months.

Future planning for each participant  is compiled and any additional Training/Educational requirements are negotiated.

New Beginnings and the Promise of Greatness

I was down at the golf course a few weeks ago at the start of the day. The driving range had been set up and no one had showed up. There the balls sat, waiting for the first golfers of the day to show up. Untouched, perfectly lined up, ready for the warm up before the round.

As I stood there admiring the view; several thoughts entered my mind. Anticipation of what’s ahead, so much like the life that we lead – every hour/every day/every week is full of promise and hope – our first step, first day at school, first love, first job. And every milestone starts at “the driving range” necessary for that part of life.

The driving range takes on many forms – practicing those first few steps, figuring out how school works, building friendships, choosing a career path, finding a life partner.

So, how is your grip on life, your stance on education and work? Are you in the swing of things with your mate; finding yourself in the rough a little too often? Are you able to read the breaks when they come your way?

Most good golfers have a coach that helps them finesse their game to their particular talents. Great teachers don’t make big changes to their client’s game. Great teachers help to unlock the potential from within, the magic that each player possesses – as unique as a fingerprint. Think of the swings out there on tour – Tiger/The Big Easy/Couples/Furyk/Phil/Bubba/Daly. No two swings the same, but each one with their own measure of greatness.

Great Life Coaches also recognize your unique fingerprint. They see your greatness within. They help you find your own magic, discover your own balance, create a practice schedule to achieve your best life game. When you want to move ahead and play your biggest possible game, it’s time to start thinking about a coach.

When you want to not only dream big but also achieve those dreams for your best possible life, it’s time to find that coach to help you line up those dreams in to an achievable plan.

When you want to put your plans into action and be held and hold yourself accountable to the plan, it’s time to find your coach

The same day that I took a picture of the practice facility I turned around and was struck by the image of the club’s flag at half-mast. This tradition, as old as time, honors each member as they end their life.

I couldn’t help but pause and think about how each of us spend and end our time here on this planet.

I was also reminded of the quote

“Don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.” (Grace Hansen)

I lost a friend last week. He was a good man. Loved his family fiercely, appreciated those around him deeply, cared about people way more than things. Reminds me of a William Wallace quote: “Every man dies. Not every man really lives.

We are all in the middle of our lives right now. We are all moving forward in time. We know that change is happening every second, minute, hour in us and around us. But are we living our best possible life? Are we showing up everywhere we are? Are we really listening to those around us? Do we know what our strengths and skills are and are we being used to our maximum? Is every day a blessing and do we feel fulfilled as we climb into bed each night?

Why not find the best grip on our lives, why not adopt the stance that allows us to enjoy all that comes our way, and why not swing right into the middle of the best imaginable course for our lives as soon as possible. Today, this moment, take a deep breath. Don’t wait for the world to change – You can change yourself and that changes everything!

If you need some help getting that clarity and planning to move forward, FIND A COACH and get started.
