7 Powerful Choices

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power." – Abraham Lincoln.

Leadership is all about choice, and the choices leaders make are powerful, impacting the lives of many people and often the futures of their organizations. During this half-day highly interactive workshop we unpack the seven most powerful choices a leader makes and participants are given several break-outs to consider the power of their choices and examples of leaders who have made the right and wrong choices.

Workshop overview, the seven choices:

  1. Team or self: the leader's focus
  2. Close or distant: the way we approach relationships
  3. Build up or tear down: the way we choose words
  4. Confront or avoid: the leader's interventions
  5. Control or set free: the leader's grip
  6. Accept or resist: the willingness to follow well
  7. Sincerity or hypocrisy: the leader's example

This is one workshop that often has a powerful and lasting effect on participants. Don't miss this opportunity to understand the choices leaders make and often don't think much about. This topic is also presented as a keynote address, ideal for retreats, large group meetings or conventions.

"Dan Gaynor's capacity to tailor his material to each specific audience is just one of the great reasons that made yesterday's workshop so rich and dynamic. Under the title "The Heart & Hands of Leadership", Dan skilfully shared with his audience of Team Leaders from the Alzheimer Society of Calgary his many years of experience as a successful leader and trainer. His sound, yet simple insight into the field of leadership will serve as a solid platform on which to build the future stages of our organization."
