growing roots of effectiveness
Each of our seminars are offered onsite, (meaning your Participants are in one location) or online, (meaning your Participants can access the live learning remotely, using the outstanding Adobe Connect platform). Here's a quick comparison:
Onsite offers the advantages of having all your Participants together in one location with the creative benefits that can occur from such a learning environment.
Online of course, has the advantage of eliminating the associated travel costs and allows a more condensed learning timeframe due to the changes within the instructional design. The online sessions can either be on the same day or spaced over different days.
Many of our clients ask us to contribute to their in-house management or leadership academies with our seminars. We can tailor our seminar modules and length to suit your exact needs. We are also able to offer train-the-trainer solutions.

The Art of Execution will help you navigate effectively through today’s whirlwind to consistently get things done, through and with people regardless of explicit or implicit authority.
The core of the program is focused on four benefits:
- Clarify the Win: Highly effective organizations, teams and individuals stay laser-focused on who their customers are, and how everyone wins from the products and/or services they provide.
- Identify the Milestones: Being clear on the timeline, the key players and anticipating different outcomes are of paramount importance to ensure projects, assignments and tasks are completed on time and on budget.
- Dealing with the Difficult: Roadblocks can stifle a project or key strategic initiative. Effective project management attempts to foresee any such issues and proactively solve them.
- Staying Focused: Effective project management focuses on the few vitals that must be done this week to keep on track.
It’s never been as vitally important as it is now, that organizations are able to attract, onboard and retain talented employees. High potential employees have plenty of choices in today’s workplace and will choose where to take their talent.
Talented employees are attracted to organizations who are clear on their mission; who operate to a set of noble, honorable values and, are able to tell their story to engage the hearts and minds of such high potential people.
During this seminar, Participants will explore their Employer’s Value Proposition (EVP). In addition, behavioral-based interviewing is discussed and role-played. Best practices are identified with regards effective on-boarding strategies and how to create a collaborative career-map to fully engage high potential employees to not only, achieve excellence in their present role but vision-casting forward into the future.
In today’s highly competitive marketplace, people truly are the differentiator and being able to attract, effectively onboard and retain talented employees can make all the difference.
Participants leave this seminar with a clear implementation plan on what they can do to improve their organization’s ability to attract and retain talented employees.Contact us so that we can understand more about how we can be of service to you.
Successful organizations know that negative conflict within an organization creates morale problems, slowdowns in work and employee dissatisfaction. Often, conflict in the workplace arises as a result of differences in personalities and approaches to solving problems and accomplishing goals.
In this highly practical seminar, participants gain a deeper understanding of their own behavioral tendencies in times of conflict through the use of the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) — perhaps the most robust self-assessment in this field. This tool helps people become more aware of their own personality traits and preferences, and enables them to more easily view the traits and preferences of others they work with. Mutual understanding, along with the development of empathy for one another, is absolutely key to effective relationships that continue to yield outstanding organizational results in today’s demanding, fast-moving and highly diverse workplace.
Everyone is needed — analytical thinkers, creative thinkers, people who hone in on the details and people who stand back to see the big picture. When people truly comprehend their differences need not lead to conflict and that not all conflict is bad… the workplace can yield greater creativity and collegiality. Participants often mention their relationships outside of work were also improved by applying the lessons learned from this seminar!Contact us so that we can understand more about how we can be of service to you.
This highly practical seminar helps supervisory managers develop a mindset, skillset and toolset to maximize the effectiveness of their organization’s most precious resource — their people. Very few supervisory managers have received adequate training in this vital role, despite the fact that most employees leave organizations because of poor supervisory management.
Supervisory managers will better understand themselves by completing a self-assessment during the seminar. Participants will identify when a certain style of supervisory management (i.e. autocratic, democratic or laissez-faire), may be necessary depending on the situation. Additionally, they will discuss and apply best practices to identify, set, monitor and achieve goals with their direct reports, that drive organizational performance and optimize professional development.
Through a series of participative exercises, supervisory managers will sharpen their skillsets to better manage projects; reduce conflict and navigate through change. Participants will practice planning for an effective meeting and how to prepare and deliver impactful presentations. The seminar concludes with an engaging exercise to encourage the supervisory managers to consider the unique contribution they plan to make moving forward, to engage the hearts and minds of their direct reports to maximize organizational results.Contact us so that we can understand more about how we can be of service to you.
Let’s be blunt — traditional work-life balance is a difficult proposition for executives to sponsor. Why? As it can often sound like personal enrichment and devoid of the daily duties.
At Newleaf Training and Development we believe we have an innovative view on this vitally important subject and that’s what we call, Work Life Balance 2.0 — a mindset and skillset that better aligns in today’s fast moving workplace.
Technology has been the primary driver that has blurred the lines between our “work life” and our “home life”. In a global economy, someone, somewhere is always working. Change is the only constant. People and organizations need to be more flexible in how work gets done, where it gets done and when it gets done.
Work Life Balance 2.0 is not so much about YOU — its about OTHERS, and how our lack of balance can adversely impact organizational results, our relationships with colleagues and ultimately the customer. We owe it to others to ensure we’re energized, present and fully engaged — an inside out approach.
Talented individuals don’t want to work for or with people who lack balance. There’s a war for talent and top organizations understand it's imperative to create policies, procedures and best practices to build a reputation of being a great place to work. This program helps achieve this new mindset and skillset.Contact us so that we can understand more about how we can be of service to you.
