Workshop Details

Why do some leaders overcome impossible barriers, go beyond unbearable pressure and frustration, and persevere in order to achieve outcomes seemingly beyond reach when others would give up? The answer to that question has never been clearer. Through their desire for relentless improvement, leaders at the edge can unlock the highest levels of performance from themselves and others, making work a more exciting place to be. Leading at the edge enables people to "play to win" rather than simply "playing not to lose."
Cutting-edge leaders know how to take appropriate risk, inspire trust, drive change, and create opportunities to foster success for themselves, their teams, and their organizations. People are facing intense pressure like never before. There are so many complex changes and challenges creating the necessity for high levels of engagement to reach high performance. Drawing on research on High Performance from the worlds of business, sports, education, teams, and personal achievement, everyone can translate this knowledge to the real world of leading self and others. The next question is how successful do you want to be?
Participants will learn through a balance of theory and action learning, group process, role playing, and action planning. There will be an opportunity to do personal work on obstacles to high performance leadership of self and others.
This course builds on the weekend workshop, Care to Dare: How to Unleash Astonishing Potential in Yourself and Others (August 5-7), and can also be taken as a stand-alone course.
