BODY LANGUAGE FOR BUY-IN

Are you comfortable with all the non-verbal language cues you need to know? Body language accounts for 55% of communication, and leaders need to use and interpret body language if they are going to be effective. Change Management Communications Center LLC and Body Language Blueprints LLC have co-created this class to help leaders and innovators use and understand body language for buy-in.

TRANSITIONING FROM BOSS TO LEADER

When are you a boss and when are you a leader? What feels better to you? We see Boss and Leader as complete opposites. A boss is there to get the job done while a leader is there inspire, empower, and guide their team. Spend some time with us to learn how to transition from a boss into a leader. You and your peers will receive custom practices that we co-create to help you transition. We believe leaders give others what they need to be successful –no more and no less. More importantly, leaders grow more leaders.
