SENSEI LEADERSHIP

Most people associate the word "Sensei" with "teacher." That works! Sensei literally translates as "one who went before." If you're a consultant, coach, mentor or adviser- people seek your expertise and leadership. They expect you to be their guide- the Sensei.

As we say in the dojo, they expect that "If you talk the talk; you walk the walk!"

In this highly interactive session you'll learn the essential qualities of Sensei Leadership and how to apply these principles to become more effective - both personally and professionally!

Goals:

This program explores the qualities of leadership at all levels of the organization.

The goal is to give participants an in depth understanding of the mindset of authentic and compassionate leadership to build trust and credibility, and establish effective and meaningful communication with peers, administrators, and customers.
