Our services involve two core components which are designed to address both individualleadership development and the development of stronger and more effective teams and organizational cultures:
The Leading Deeply Foundational Workshop
The Nine Domains process for developing more effective Teams and Organizations
The Leading Deeply™ foundational workshop is a non-traditional two-day program that focuses on the “who” of leadership. It is an invitation to deeply examine and consider your own values, thoughts, beliefs, practices and characteristic ways of being as a platform for transformational growth. Through personal assessment, focused exercises, deep inquiry and group discussion you will have the opportunity to explore and question your roles, habits, personal style, language practices, relationship skills, and the “stories” you may have unconsciously adopted as truths. These insights, along with practical tools, will help you create new possibilities and generate specific commitments to new ways of thinking and being as a leader.
You will leave this workshop with:
Deeper insight into your personality, archetypal and behavioral patterns using the Enneagram
A clearer understanding of your strengths, abilities, and convictions as a leader
Practices to identify and shift self-limiting beliefs and perceptions
The ability to hear others more deeply and comprehensively than ever before
Tools for more effective and inspiring language and communication
Renewed capacity to deal with business, organizational, and personal challenges
A deeper level of authenticity and courage
A personal declaration for focused action and next steps
The Nine Domains process for developing more effective Teams and Organizations is a customized program that is ideal as a "next step" for leaders who have participated in the Leading Deeply™ foundational workshop. It is a process that is aimed at helping teams to become more collaborative, more effective, and more resilient for high performance. See "Teams" for more information.
“The Leading Deeply program was very valuable to me not only as a business owner, but in my life in general. By learning the perspectives and techniques offered by Barbara and Kathleen, I was able to see some of my lifelong tendencies in a fresh light, that gave me a renewed insight not only into myself, but also into others with differing perspectives and personality styles. I feel much better able to handle my relationships in both business and my personal life. Sharing perspectives with other business professionals and seeing our commonalities as well as our differences in approaching similar questions and situations was eye-opening. Working together to form a vision for a new leadership paradigm along with real-world tools and techniques was well worth the financial and time investment.”
Pamela Cisneros, CEO, Zafari, Inc.
"I have worked with Kathleen for two decades and I have followed her journey from Corporate Leader to Leadership Coach with great respect, appreciation, and awe. She has never waivered in her belief that corporate America can ultimately achieve its promise of commercial accomplishment and human fulfillment simultaneously. Kathleen brings a unique blend of business acumen and emotional insight into her work and provides her clients with the big picture framework while never losing sight of the important details. During our work together, I was the recipient of her wisdom, integrity and creativity as we moved my leadership vision and practices into a more vivid and meaningful focus. Her effort and effect, in both my own leadership and in our overall corporate culture, continues to be felt months after her work concludes. She truly helps her clients see things as they really are and helps find the path to the place we want them to be."
