Leadership Development

Do you think there is a right or wrong when it comes to leadership? Leaders come from all professional backgrounds and life experiences. Keep in mind that just because someone leads differently doesn’t mean their leadership formula is better or worse than another. Dysfunction arises when leaders can’t manage what they don’t understand, or perhaps when they have never been taught how to lead.

We know that compelling leaders first know themselves … their inclinations, their triggers, their reactions, their comforts and their goals. When leaders learn how to understand themselves better, they begin to work better with others and build more productive teams. YPA helps your leaders learn specific behaviors and strategies to help increase leadership skills.

  1. It’s in the Pause
    Emotional Intelligence has been proven to be one of the key factors in a person’s overall success. One reason we are able to manage ourselves and our relationships effectively comes down to this important component: It’s in the Pause™. The pause is that critical moment that can make or break a relationship, a sales transaction, or an opportunity for great leadership. In this keynote, you will learn the most important times to pause, including pausing for clarity, impact, confusion, authenticity and empathy. Discover how to dig deeper to create more meaningful self-discovery and purpose while building better teams.
  2. Life or Death – The Importance of Workplace Wellness
    When your employees don’t take care of their bodies or manage stress effectively, the results can truly be life or death. Impact your organization with a keynote focused on life saving strategies that will create healthier habits for your associates while increasing productivity for your organization and reducing costs for additional healthcare. This keynote is one of the most important messages your team will ever receive!
  3. Give ‘Em Leadership Not Lip Service
    “Give ‘Em Leadership, Not Lip Service” is a half day workshop created to help participants explore their own competencies and beliefs about Leadership roles, identifying their unique strengths that will help them “walk the talk” and truly excel as a Leader. Each person possesses the capacity for Leadership, but only those who cultivate it will become truly Effective Leaders. Attendees will enjoy cultivating their capacity for Leadership, regardless of their role within the company.
  4. C.R.E.A.T.E.
    The CREATE concept is an engaging and interactive session where you and your team will learn how to:
    Collaborate with each other
    Reach beyond your comfort zone
    Exceed your department’s expectations
    Act on your personal goals
    Trust your associates
    Execute flawlessly
  5. Management Team Performance
    This is an excellent management tool to help your team members understand their personalities and how they prefer to function. Also learn how you are perceived by others, what personalities you are drawn to and how to maximize the personality strengths of others. Understanding your personality and that of your associates establishes the launching pad for increased communication, more collaborative effort and better use of individual strengths.
  6. Discovering Emotional Intelligence
    Whether you are aware of it or not, your emotions are constantly surfacing on the job in things you think, see or do every day.  This one-day class taught by our TalentSmart certified trainer will help you learn the four components of Emotional Intelligence (EQ). You will assess and understand your current EQ, learn where to focus your development, and we will help you create a customized development plan to increase your EQ in the future.  You will leave with 66 strategies that will help you communicate effectively, make better decisions, handle conflict well and be a better team player. (Once completed, there is a second level available entitled “Developing Emotional Intelligence.”)
  7. Executive Coaching
    Executive Coaching is a relationship that focuses on the Coach being a change agent to help you achieve specific goals with regard to professional development and organizational growth. YPA offers coaching for all levels of executives and leaders, and we have the right coach for you.

    Do you know what brings out your worst attributes? Are you aware of how your moods and approaches impact your employees? Does your overly demanding client send you into a panic mode? Do you make decisions that don’t align with your values and cause you regret? Do you not connect well with your team? You can benefit with our EQ Executive Coaching, which is centered on developing your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) skills to bring out the best in yourself and those around you.
