Bringing Leadership Home:  

Keeping Your Cool (and your Heart) When the Stakes Are High

How do we truly change our reactive behavior when the chips are down, and the pressure is on? It’s not easy to do through brute force – or sheer will. In fact, in observing senior leaders who have made meaningful change stick, what they have done is the work to understand their own patterns and lead themselves. Dr. Hale speaks on what the three pillars of that personal work are so that leaders and teams may “Bring Leadership Home” and take true Deep Ownership.

How do leaders navigate change? When leaders and teams have an inspired mission, results way outstrip expectations. Yet, when dysfunction remains unchecked, their bigger purpose results are not realized! A leader’s most important responsibility is to unblock their team’s real performance potential.

Whether your team rocks, and you are looking to keep the magic growing; or your team is harboring toxic dynamics, and needs to be re-inspired, now could be the time to infuse new understanding.  Bringing Leadership Home is a model, training program and framework that creates real behavioral change – for the better. When leaders and their teams choose Deep Ownership, the results in well-being, profitability, and accomplishment are outstanding.

Taking Deep Ownership: Bringing Leadership Home For Leaders

Leaders frequently ask me: How can I keep my cool when the pressure is on? How can I keep my team on track even when stressful situations (or people) claw at them?

Exceptional leaders produce astounding results even when the pressure is on. Their teams trust them, and they inspire confidence. And from confidence and trust, the full force of the discretionary energies of every team member work together to produce what you intend and then some! The Align Forum shows teams how be productive and work well together. Bringing Leadership Home shows leadership teams how to guide the process.

These programs show leaders how to transform behavior above the line and how to take deep ownership of their results. Every session includes real-life case studies from businesses, families, teams and relationships that have changed course by Bringing Leadership Home.

Session Take-Aways:

Executives, Business Owners, and Leaders will apply the principles of Bringing Leadership Home specifically to:
