Expanding Boundaries Program

This seminar series focuses on improving organizations by educating a cross-section of its members, from the ground up to the senior executives in order to cultivate learning and sharing ideas at all levels. A mixture of topics helps each individual gain a better understanding of themselves, each other, and the organization. The experience will lead to better leadership and vision and better solutions to the challenges that face leaders everyday. Each session is facilitated to enhance this learning experience. Courses are tailored to include assessments that build better frameworks for understanding personality differences and how interpersonal interactions and thinking preferences can impact the workplace and environment. Groups learn how to develop improved communication along with a better understanding of the value of diversity in the workplace. Another course facet is change readiness. Courses examine individual and corporate comfort zones, awareness zones, emerging ideas, and change behaviors and how change can positively impact an organization. By evaluating both sustaining and disruptive technologies an organization can also learn about their performance over time and learn how to improve processes. By also focusing on leadership and authority and the differences between them, we go back to the basics and show that leadership is about people: the organization's most valuable asset. And as a leader, one must recognize the proper balance between controlling risk and fueling risk. Expect all sessions to be extremely interactive with a minimum of classroom lecture. The setting is designed to allow for brainstorming without stifling innovation or ideas. Each attendee should speak without the fear of reprimand or consequence from anyone in the organization, as this forum is intended to build up the company and individual networks. This course is designed to help employees translate what they learn into actionable practices that they can place into their daily operations to create a better working environment, which in turn will achieve more for the company as a whole.
