What is Leadership I/O?

Much more than a management training workshop, Leadership I/O addresses the specific content that is vital for an effective and engaging leader.  This workshop provides two distinct elements: 1) focus on those aspects of the leader inside – personal style, character, and values, and 2) focus on the skills and actions that extend from the leader outward – skills and actions required to lead effectively from the inside out.  

Designed to address the practical skills capabilities of leadership — Leadership I/O is a refresher workshop for seasoned leaders, as a foundational workshop for those recently promoted to a formal leadership position, or for those in leadership for some time without any formal management training.  Leadership I/O is mainly applicable to directors, managers, supervisors and team leaders.
