    Presentations & Workshops

    Follow the Leader
    People will follow those they believe will make them better. Better leaders, better friends, better people. But often many leaders lack the experience or training in basic people skills to do so. Skills that include how to hire and fire, delegate, have hard conversations and speak in public. All critical skills that separate leaders from bosses and help answer the question - Why follow?
    Hard Conversations for Avoiders
    Why do we avoid difficult conversations? What are the costs professionally and personally? How can you overcome this avoidance and have effective hard conversations? This interactive presentation answers all three questions and provides practical skills that you will immediately be able to use and teach.
  • Testimonals

    "Tim was a fantastic trainer for our leadership group! He took time to meet with me before our training and learn about our organization in detail! It has been less than 30 days, and I have had members of our leadership team reach out to share how they have already, “Followed the Circle” during their conversations with both employees and customers! Tim shares his stories that are relatable for everyone and helps put the principles of his training into practice! You will not be disappointed to have Tim train with your organization."
