LEADERS SHARPENING LEADERS
We are certified Christian coaches and facilitators
who are dedicated to developing better leaders and stronger teams in the organizations, businesses, churches, and communities we serve.
Everything we do is based on our Leader to Leader™ framework,
philosophy, and strategy for leadership development.
LEADER TO LEADER
STRENGTHENING YOU AND YOUR TEAM
DO YOU WANT TO STRENGTHEN YOUR TEAM OR DEVELOP NEW LEADERS?
We understand that daily demands can make it challenging to design and implement a consistent leadership development plan. We have designed Leader to Leader™workshops with the busy leader in mind. We partner with leaders from every sector of our community, coming along-side to offer encouragement and resources through coaching and workshops for groups and teams.
Our interactive workshops use a coach-approach and are based on our Framework. Facilitators provide short "bursts of information" on the topic and ask powerful questions for participants to engage with each other through lively discussion.
We believe that leaders will naturally sharpen each other when given great content and the right environment to wrestle with leadership challenges around their tables.
See a sampling of our workshops below. They can stand alone or be combined for a retreat or a series.
Contact Julie or one of the facilitators in our Network for information on customizing a workshop, series, or retreat to meet you needs.
“Our administrative team participated in a Leader to Leader Strengths workshop. The biggest take-away from the experience was to have our leadership team know both their individual and group strengths—we realized how we can use our strengths to work together to meet the needs of those who look to us for leadership. We were inspired to focus on investing more of our time in our areas of strength, and I now believe that by having our team work in roles that support their strengths, Nekoosa Public Schools is moving forward and accomplishing more for the learners in our community. I would highly recommend the Leader to Leader experience to anyone who desires to invest in their leaders.”

"Every team can benefit from having a facilitator like Diane who communicates with passion on the topic of team-building and strengths. She was able to weave her own story in a way that inspired us to write our own narrative as we learn more about ourselves and our colleagues and grow together into a stronger team!"

LIVING YOUR STRENGTHS
Do you like the idea of focusing on strengths instead of weaknesses? Would you like tools to help you be the very best you can be in every situation? You will leave this two-hour interactive workshop with insight that helps you understand how to mold your innate talents into true strengths. Note: Participants take an online assessment from the book Living Your Strengths by Donald Clifton before coming to the workshop.
BUILDING TRUST & HANDLING CONFLICT
The foundation for every healthy relationship is the ability to build and maintain trust. In this two-hour interactive session we will examine practical ways to build trust and use coaching tools to identify and unpack various conflict styles. Learning our natural inclinations during times of conflict can help us respond in ways that build trust and create stronger teams when working through conflict.
LIVE & LEAD INTENTIONALLY
Do you struggle to fit everything into your schedule? Each of us has 168 hours per week to accomplish all that God is calling us to do. In (2) two-hour interactive sessions, we will use coaching tools to examine our personal values and use them to make wise choices about where to invest our time and energy in six key life domains—relationships, work, finances, health, living environment, and personal growth.
Changes—both small and large—are a natural part of life and yet most people find it difficult even when it’s a positive event. This two-hour interactive workshop explores reactions to change and helps participants better pilot the journey for themselves and those they lead. We will explore some distinct stages people and organizations must navigate as they move through change and into their “new normal.”
THINKING ABOUT THINKING
Good thinkers solve problems, never lack ideas, and have hope for the future. No matter what your circumstances, you can learn to be a good thinker. Strong leaders understand and use many types of thinking. In this two-hour interactive workshop we will examine how our personal thoughts influence our feelings and lead to our actions. You will leave with practical tools to help you and those you lead slow down, step back, and choose your thoughts. Changed thinking leads to a changed life!
GOD MADE YOU TO BE
Would you like more insight on who God made you to be? Do you long to recognize God’s call on your life? This three-hour interactive workshop will help you explore and connect your spiritual gifts, passions, abilities, personal style and life experiences. You will leave feeling energized after gaining more insight about yourself and those with whom you live and work.
