FOCUS Alumni Master Leadership Class
FOCUS St. Louis and the St. Louis Regional Chamber is partnering to offer two Master leadership classes with Dr. Debbie Schroeder-Saulnier and Dr. Kathy Cramer.
Master Leadership Class with Dr. Deborah Schroeder-Saulnier
Tuesday, April 8, 2014 from 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
In The Power of Paradox: Harness the Energy of Competing Ideas to Uncover Radically Innovative Solutions, Deborah brings a counterintuitive approach to solving problems as it answers critical questions:
• Should your company pursue global expansion or mine local opportunities?
• Take risks to grow dramatically or protect your current stability?
• Seek to maximize sales or the bottom line?
We’re so often faced with apparent paradoxes: continuity and change, conservatism and progressiveness, predictability and chaos. In business, inherent tensions are mistakenly viewed as problems to be resolved once the "correct" answer is found. But when we consider only one direction – either A or B – we only see part of the picture. The strongest and most innovative solutions are frequently realized not through either/or decision-making, but by pursuing two contrasting options at the same time – the both/and option.
Master Leadership Class with Dr. Kathy Cramer
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 from 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
In Lead Positive, Kathy takes the fundamentals of her pioneering Asset-Based Thinking™ (ABT) system and turns them into a playbook for successful leadership. ABT is an elegantly simple mindset management process that allows leaders to make small shifts in perception that yield great results for their businesses, their lives, and the lives and work of those they lead. Kathy shows leaders precisely how to turn their attention from the negative and toward thepositive aspects of any situation. As leaders make this mental shift, they improve their optimism, empathy, and confidence—and what they say and do from this mindset is far more likely to inspire others to do their best possible work. Step by step, Lead Positive helps leaders learn to change what they:
• See: leaders learn how to shift their perspective and zero in on what is working,strong, and possible.
• Say: leaders learn how to connect what they say to the positive evidence they seeso they can create magnetic high-impact communication.
• Do: informed by what they see and say leaders learn which behaviors will work best to inspire effective action in others.
