WORKSHOPS

Workshops give your leaders time and mental space away from day-to-day demands to learn and reflect. They emerge with energy and insight to overcome persistent challenges and perform at their best.

Armed with science and strategies, the challenges that once seemed impossible will now become easier.

PEOPLE AREN’T CRAZY, WE JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND THEM

Leaders tackle complex problems. The work is high-stakes. The pace is fast. The environment is ever-changing. And, the results aren’t always achieved.

When we aren’t getting the outcomes we want, we tell ourselves stories that place blame on others. These stories are myths, and they stand in the way of reaching our goals.

Whatever the challenge, becoming “people smart” — accurately understanding the psychology of those around us — is the first step toward identifying a solution

TESTIMONIALS

Constantine Alexandrakis

Alison worked with our senior leaders in the Americas during one of our bi-annual offsites to facilitate a discussion around change management. She did a lot of work upfront to understand the nuances of the audience and the changes.  She delivered a very successful, engaging, thoughtful and interactive session with the team, with some clear takeaways on what we as leaders could do to support change. She is very sharp-witted and intellectually astute and she was able to engage the team in a discussion at a high level, push them to think differently and have a strong dialogue with each other.

Alison is knowledgeable and professional while at the same time warm and authentic. She did an outstanding job facilitating an all-day education and coaching event centered on improving negotiation skills for members of our Womens INtrapreneur Network (WIN). The day consisted of small group learning sessions, a mentoring lunch, and a large group presentation: “WIN-WIN Advantage” where attendees learned valuable and practical negotiation tips. Alison customized her presentation to meet the unique needs of women in the workforce. Through the use of science, humor and storytelling, Alison kept the audience engaged. In order to reinforce learning, Alison recorded three podcasts that were then launched over the following weeks. In the podcasts Alison challenged listeners to apply their new negotiation skills and report back. Our WIN members are still talking about the experience. Alison is valued as an honorary member, mentor and supporter of our WIN network. We highly recommend Alison as a talented and effective speaker and educator!!!
