Did you know 71% of workers think about quitting their jobs daily? That number would be shocking if people were actually quitting. What's worse is they continue to go to work every day and collect paychecks while completely checking out emotionally.

The truth is, leaders cannot change every circumstance to make every employee happy. They establish this expectation of themselves and have built it in others, and then the business starts suffering as a result. Relieve these building expectations using the Reality-Based Leadership workshop.

How It Works

The Reality-Based Leadership workshop is organized into six modules.

Module 1 provides you with a broad overview of the program while underscoring the importance of Reality-Based Leadership in turning excuses into results.

Module 2 provides you with background information about why conventional leadership methods have failed.

Module 3 helps you organize everything you will need to conduct the Reality-Based Leadership workshop. This module includes the workshop agenda, planning checklists, tips for optimizing your impact as a facilitator, and instructions for administering the Reality-Based Leadership assessment in advance of the workshop.

Module 4 shares information that you can use to introduce the concept of Reality-Based Leadership to the executive leadership within the organization. This module provides suggestions on how to increase buy-in, engagement, and support. The module includes guidance on how to prepare to meet with senior executives, how to make the business case for Reality-Based Leadership, and how executives can extend the value of the training session long after the workshop is complete.

Module 5 provides verbiage you can use to have the most impact as you work with workshop participants. The script will help you introduce agenda segments and “tee up” concepts, breakouts, and activities.

Module 6 ensures that the momentum created through this training program continues long after the training is conducted. This module includes specific best practices for extending the value of the workshop, as well as tips that individuals and organizations can use to continue to strengthen their leadership skills.
