Event description

Description

Gritty Leaders are tenacious, holistic, imaginative and substantial, and they use these four core characteristics to lead successful teams and projects. This immersive workshop is designed to dig into those characteristics and review your mastery of them, and then more importantly to identy how to help the development of two people you lead who have the potential to be gritty, or grittier, leaders. We are seeking to answer the question: how do we create more gritty leaders to positively impact organizations and society?

Our immersive workshops are designed to provoke your thinking and identify actions to reach your objectives. We purposefully do not use PowerPoints, projectors, videos or other electronic distractions... each workshop is 100% organic, interactive, and personal. Our fast-paced workshops includes dialog and 'on demand' Q&A with the instructor, Paul Stavrand. Paul has over two decades of leading transformations, managing high performance teams, strategizing growth, consulting with senior leaders and training people at all career stages. He also has an undergrad degree from Cornell University and MBA from Columbia Business School. Paul has spent the last ten years working through how to effectively focus actions to build teams, collaborate for mutual gain, exceed goals, and maintain a sense of humor in all circumstances.

If you want to achieve more with your leadership opportunities, and build Gritty Leaders on your team, this is a great place to start. Leave energized and ready to take action, or you may request a full refund. We provide everything needed - notebook, pen, light snacks and beverages. Additionally, with the workshop fee you receive complementary admission to RISD Art Museum to explore their inspiring collection before or after the workshop.
