Leading with Substance, Sizzle and Soul:
Become Exceptional with Asset-Based Thinking™
In Leading with Substance, Sizzle, and Soul,
participants will have the opportunity to unleash their potential
as exceptional leaders through the integration of Asset-Based
Thinking (ABT) to guide their leadership. They will learn a
comprehensive framework built upon 30 years of positive psychology,
practice with clients and innovative leadership development
consulting with thousands of industry leaders. The framework also
includes empirical findings from scholars across the globe.
People follow people, not just good ideas.
Leaders realize this axiom is true, and yet they often neglect
their own "self-investment" to become an exceptional force for
achieving positive change. Instead, leaders concentrate on more
conventional approaches such as cultivating industry expertise and
developing sound business strategies to make their mark. These
conventional areas of focus are of course important - but not if
they are pursued at the expense of what it takes to become an
exceptional leader. Asset-Based Thinking takes "positive thinking"
to a whole new level of engagement. While positive thinking calls
for a positive attitude about life and the future, ABT is the
leadership imperative that calls for positive action and traction
in the present moment. Leading with Substance, Sizzle, and Soul
offers leaders a comprehensive, yet simple, framework for
unleashing your potential as an exceptional leader.
In this highly interactive 3-hour workshop,
participants will be introduced to the Substance - Sizzle - Soul
framework with its ABT foundation. Learning objectives include how
- Leverage your strengths and aspirations as primary drivers of
- Cultivate superb rhetorical skills that captivate the minds and
hearts of your constituents
- Establish strong personal connections with your followers that
withstand the tests of time, setbacks, and volatile
- Become an admired role model, motivator, risk-taker and
