The current workplace poses
an ever-growing number of challenges: there?s more to be done with
fewer people to get it all done; employees are changing jobs
sooner and there?s more turnover; the pace is hectic and everyone
Just about every leader that
we coach, train or speak with has too much to do and too little
time to get it all done. Yet this is the real world that you must
operate in, and as the leader, it?s still your job to deliver
results in spite of it.
And while all of this is
true, it doesn?t have to be your reality. To make the shift to
even better results, you must do more than manage your team.
The From Manager to Remarkable Leader Workshop is based on a proven
leadership model to help you lead beyond management and through
others. Through our Three-O Leadership Model ? Others, Outcomes,
Ourselves ? you will learn how to make a positive impact in the
world by serving others first and foremost.
Chances are you have been in
your management role for a long time, and while you certainly have
learned a lot and do many things well, you also know, deep down,
you could be better. You experience uncertainty and frustration.
You experience situations that you get through, but you are sure
you could have handled them better.
If your only goal is to
survive in your role, this workshop probably isn?t for you. If,
however, you want to get better, you want to improve, you need to
get better results, this workshop can help you.
We?ll focus on what it means to lead, not just manage. In Kevin?s
vast experience working with people from front line leaders to the
C-suite, he has seen that the mental and actual transition from
thinking like a manager to thinking like a leader can be the
biggest lever to improve job satisfaction (for everyone) and
In this workshop, we will
focus on some areas you would expect, like communication,
coaching, and change management. But in each case, we will go
deeper and discuss things you might not have considered before ?
and even share secrets that are different than what you might
expect or have seen before.
Yet beyond these important
skill areas, we will explore trust and influence ? and how those
factors can also increase team effectiveness, organizational
culture and innovation. This is just tip of the big leadership
iceberg we will expose and dissect for your success.
Everything that we learn
together is built around timeless and proven leadership principles
that you can take back and implement in your own organization to
immediately impact your results and your success. You will get the
opportunity to work in a group, exploring potential leadership
situations and working to develop solutions for each. And at the
end of the workshop, we?ll conclude with a purposeful session
where you?ll create a personal, practical and do-able action plan
that will put your new skills into action with practical first
steps and next steps.

Format of the Workshop
From Manager to Remarkable Leader is not a one-way
lecture. We don?t like passive teaching and no one learns
successfully in this setting. The workshop is a two-day,
interactive and fun learning experience led by best-selling author
and world- renowned leadership expert, Kevin Eikenberry. You will
get the chance to practice and gain confidence in the new skills
you learn with your colleagues and with Kevin. You?ll have the
opportunity to discuss your unique situations and challenges and
together you?ll build processes that you can use and apply back in
the real world when you return from the event.
One of the biggest concerns
that we get about training is, How can I apply what I
learn in the course back at my organization?
We understand that one
workshop isn?t your single ticket to leadership excellence and we
don?t expect you to go back after two days and get it all right,
all of the time.
And for that very reason,
we?ve built a workshop that is supported by processes you can use
and apply back in the real world when you return from the event,
including two, live group coaching sessions after you return from
While we will give you plenty
of opportunities in class to ask questions and talk about your
unique situations and challenges, that still isn?t the same as
back in your workplace.
With the group coaching sessions, you will get additional access
to Kevin for one full hour per session to help you continue to
master the strategies and techniques you learn in the workshop.
With group coaching, you?ll get?
- Answers to your most pressing questions.
- Advice on your stickiest situations.
- Advice on implementing your ideas and plans more
- An opportunity to share successes.
- Confirmation that what you are planning to try will
- Valuable learning opportunities from the questions
& challenges of others in the group.
It is All Based on You and Your Needs
There is plenty of management
training available, and it might be easy to lump this in with the
Don?t do that.
This learning experience
starts before you arrive, and as you have read, continues long
after you leave the in-person experience. The From Manager to Remarkable Leader Workshop will help you shift

organizational needs, help you love your job again, and help you
make a bigger difference for your organization, your team, the
individuals you lead, and yourself.
Only leaders can change the
world in positive ways ? this workshop will equip you towards
reaching your goals.
