The Art of Authenticity
In today’s changing environment, authentic leadership is more important than ever. The world is starving for character, transparency, and trust.

Dr. Karissa Thacker, the author of the best-selling leadership book, The Art of Authenticity, explains in this course that authenticity is more than just “being yourself.” In fact, it’s about being your best self.
Prepare your leaders with an understanding of authentic leadership and empower them to champion change in your organization—all while embracing their unique collection of strengths, skills, and quirks.

Getting Real About Workplace Violence
The risk of workplace violence doesn’t need to be left to chance alone. Learn how to prevent and survive a potentially life-or-death situation.
Getting Real About Workplace Violence has been thoughtfully produced to present information in a way that will inform participants without overwhelming them. The course includes survival strategies, prevention steps, and manager-specific training that highlights their critical role in identifying concerning behaviors and diffusing potential situations from escalating.
The content aligns with the American National Standard, which is the standard advised by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for best practices addressing workplace violence prevention and response.
Getting Real About Workplace Violence is based on the knowledge and experience of Jim Sporleder, a security industry veteran of more than 25 years.
Jim has trained thousands of military personnel from some of the most elite units in the U.S. Department of Defense. He was the president of the Center for Personal Protection and Safety for 11 years, where he helped research, develop, and guide implementation of specialized programs that helped much of the Fortune 100 plan and prepare for the emerging security challenges related to workplace violence.
The simple, yet comprehensive, LEAD NOW! model was built using surveys of 8,000 executives, managers, and employees who were asked to rank their perceptions of the most important behaviors of an ideal leader.
This training program contains hundreds of effective tips and techniques on these 21 most common dimensions of leadership. It includes an assessment to help learners identify which leadership competencies to prioritize first.
The LEAD NOW! Leadership Development Model was created by John Parker Stewart and Daniel Stewart based on 50 years of collective management and leadership coaching experience with leaders from Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and other worldwide organizations.
Father-son duo, John Parker Stewart and Daniel Stewart co-authored the award-winning LEAD NOW! book series which includes:

Make Mentoring Count
Mentoring relationships frequently fail to meet their full potential for many reasons. Often it’s a lack of understanding what a successful mentoring relationship looks like and a failure to set clear expectations from the start.
Make Mentoring Count will build your leaders’ confidence and create a common language for formal and informal mentoring programs within your organization. Using expert advice and tips, Dr. Lois Zachary will step your leaders through every stage of the mentoring journey.
Great mentoring can have a profound impact on your organization by engaging and motivating employees, but first you’ll need to develop the critical coaching and mentoring skills of your leaders.

Painless Performance Conversations
Procrastination, fear, and competing priorities often get in the way of initiating performance-related conversations, especially if an
employee is not performing as expected. Understandably, managers often struggle to find the right words to convey their message effectively.
According to author Marnie E. Green, when a performance conversation is painless it creates a culture of ownership and improves performance. Help your supervisors lead performance conversations with confidence and poise.
Painless Performance Conversations presents behavior models with actionable and practical day-to-day advice for any supervisor
looking to improve both their individual and team’s performance.
