Fun, Variety, Engagement & Involvement
Our leadership seminars and workshops are fun, fast-paced and highly interactive. You'll never have to worry about death by PowerPoint. Roger Reece uses creative photography and video to make his interactive training come alive, and continually changes the pace with facilitated discussions, creative group exercises and immersive activities. There are no spectators in our workshops. Every participant is fully engaged throughout the workshop, whether it's a brief two-hour program or a multiple-day experience.
Roger Reece gives participants an opportunity to practice leadership skills during the workshop through role-play exercises. Each role-player is given a written scenario involving coaching, counseling, conflict or problem-solving. The written scenario includes the background, the situation specifics and the role-player's side of the story. Then the role-players work through the situation using leadership skills from the workshop. In the debrief session that follows, Roger leads the participants in a discussion of what happened and how the role-players could have exercised more effective leadership.
If you would like to make your leadership training workshop a team-building event, we can include one or more team-building activities. Indoor and/or outdoor team competition involving leadership, teamwork and problem-solving adds another dimension of experiential learning to the program. After each activity, Roger Reece conducts a debriefing session, drawing parallels between the activity and daily situations in the workplace. For more information on our team-building activities, please visit our Team Building Workshops website at www.teambuildingworkshops.com.
Leaders must learn to work effectively with all personality types. Our leadership development workshops generally include personality assessments based on the DISC model. DISC training helps managers to understand their own leadership style and how to adapt to the different personalities of their team members. The assessments personalize the workshop for each participant and provide them with powerful tools for leading and motivating every team member. Contact us for a sample assessment. Visit our DISC Training Workshops website for more information.
Humor & Entertainment
Learning is accelerated when the participants are having fun. Roger Reece's creative style brings fun and humor to every workshop. If you want to add even more humor and entertainment, let us know, and Roger will bring his alter-ego, Buford P. Fuddwhacker, to the workshop. Buford is a down-home country philosopher and motivational speaker who adds music, humor and outrageous audience participation to the mix. Buford's motivational training modules range from 5-30 minutes in length, and your workshop can include from 1-5 fun-filled Fuddwhacker modules. For more information about Buford Fuddwhacker, visit our Fun Motivational Keynotes website at www.funmotivationalkeynotespeaker.com. Contact us for a sample video of Buford in action, available for viewing online, or in DVD or VHS format.
Leadership Development After the Workshop
We create a customized workbooks for the participants of each leadership development workshop/seminar. The workbook includes key concepts and learning points from the workshop as well as worksheets for individual and group exercises during the workshop. The workbook also includes tools and self-assessments for leadership development, for participants' use after the workshop for personal development. These tools can be managed and incorporated into your own in-house leadership development program.
