Think Tank Events and Online Leadership Training

Live training to help you overcome the stresses and frustrations of modern leadership.

Navigating leadership in today’s world is tough. Sometimes you need a regular shot in the arm to keep perspective, refresh and remind yourself of the principles that will keep you leading on purpose. That’s why we offer monthly Think Tank events—free leadership training where we’ll talk through timely challenges and offer tools and techniques for dealing with them.

What to expect from the InitiativeOne Think Tank series.

  • Energetic and lively presentations. It's pretty short and not boring.
  • Interactive using real examples. We regularly take questions from the crowd and real-life situations to talk through.
  • Positive focus. You won’t find a lot of negativity or a focus on what you’re doing wrong.
  • Advice is actionable. We give advice on how to deal with real issues facing leaders. You’ll leave with at least one or two takeaways you can implement today. 
  • Unique perspective. We approach leadership from the emotional, personal level of things. Starting at that core leads to a top-performing team.
  • Impactful strategies. Implementing our advice consistently over time will create change in your personal and professional leadership.
 

Each month, we invite you to join us to receive invaluable insights that will help you go further faster in your leadership, company, and career. Topics we cover include:

January 2022: 
What Is True Work-Life Balance?‚Äč

Many individuals view work-life balance sort of like a teeter-totter. While one side is active, the other side is inactive. In this view, the goal is to balance the two, so equal time is given to both sides over time. We maintain a different understanding of work-life balance! 

Life balance occurs when one is fully present at home and yet flexible when work requires periodic attention while at home. At the same time, work is so enjoyable that it feels like play, not merely a job! It is like two life-giving streams flowing seamlessly together, each providing stimulation, meaning, and joy! One feeds the other and vice versa! 

If you want to learn more about a healthy work-life balance, join us at our next Think Tank! 

This is a gift to the community - There is no charge to attend.

February 2022: 
What is your leadership style? How do your coworkers perceive the way you lead? Do you think that you come across as dominant? Extroverted? Patient? Careful?
 
Are you trying to lead in these ways? Does it matter?
 
Spoiler alert: We’re all wired differently!
 
Our differences make leading with purpose even more essential to achieve a more significant impact! Understanding your leadership tendencies and how those styles come across to your coworkers opens the door for greater understanding. Applying this understanding to changing situations and different types of people will create flexibility that sustains personal and professional growth.
 
Register for our next Think Tank if you want to maximize your leadership style!

March 2022: 
Life sometimes feels like an impossible balancing act. You’re walking along a balance beam, and just when you start to find your footing, someone starts throwing balls at you to juggle. Work, family, friends, health, and everything else are vying for our attention. Downtime has a significant impact on creativity, productivity, and, more importantly, our health and wellbeing. Taking care of all these facets of life leaves little time to rest and recover.
 
Rest feels selfish when everyone in our lives feels stretched thin. However, it is impossible to draw any water from your well if you aren’t replenishing it. We can’t serve, lead with purpose, or bring our best if we don’t prioritize rest. Rest can look different for different people too. Let’s dive into the new frontiers of rest and find a way that will work for you!
 
Refill your well with us at our next Think Tank!

April 2022: 
What’s going on inside your head? 
 
You’re so dumb. 
Here we go again.
All you’re going to do is mess things up. 
 
It’s easy to fall down the rabbit hole each passing day. Our thoughts hold significant power over our lives, but what if we told you that you can take back control of your mind. 
 
You are enough.
 
And you don’t have to spend time doubting yourself. Choosing to focus on what could go wrong isn’t any easier or more difficult that wondering if that same event could go right! Moving from shame to grace may not be your default setting, but changing the narrative is possible. There are real, practical steps you can take to transition your self-talk away from self-doubt and toward self-belief. 
 
We’ll explore these techniques and more at our next Think Tank!
