Overview of this Nine-Week Program

session 1 — Oct. 1st

A Great Human Leader is Intentional

Have you heard that 70% of team engagement is determined solely by the managers? This session will share why it’s so important to get this right. A great human leader is, more than anything else, intentional. In five specific ways:

session 2 — Oct. 15th

A Great Human Leader Curates Connection

Left to our own devices (pun intended!), we’re not connecting. Great human leaders curate connection and don’t leave it to chance. 55% of employees say feeling connected to their work increases their desire to go above and beyond. In this session you’ll see why it’s so important to build connections at work and how to do it through conversation, curiosity, and care. 

session 3 — Oct. 29th

A Great Human Leader Takes Professional Development Personally

People want to grow on the job, up, down, and sideways – especially Gen Z who list professional development as a top motivating force. In a LinkedIn Global Talent Trends survey, 59% of respondents cited professional development opportunities as a top area to invest in. In this session you’ll learn how to show up for your people in a way that makes them want to show up for you. 

session 4 — Nov. 12th

A Great Human Leader Finds the Sweet Spot Between Tech & Connect

The tech options we have these days to communicate are virtually limitless. But the default use of technology degrades connection, especially as 55% of meaning is communicated through body language. I’ll show you why you need to leverage all that’s great about technology but also know how and when to put it in its place. 

session 5 — Nov. 19th

A Great Human Leader Connects People to Purpose

When people feel a sense of purpose on the job, the bottom line improves. Period. In fact, Harvard Business School found that companies where employees feel a sense of purpose at work outperform the stock market by 6.9%. This session will show you how to increase performance by making it easy to connect people to the big picture. 

session 6 — Dec. 3rd

A Great Human Leader Says Thank You

Only 61% of employees feel appreciated at work. Don’t leave all that goodwill on the table! In this session, you’ll see why recognizing your people, in the ways they want to be recognized, can go a long way to making your organization a great place for humans.
