Empowered people recognize individual responsibility as the key to team and company success. Empowerment supports innovation, creative outcomes and greater overall organizational productivity. These are samples of what can be created. Programs are designed to match client needs and desired outcomes.
Seminars are delivered in a fun, experiential and engaging manner. All seminars are activity based and inspire participants to higher levels of engagement, effectiveness and excellence.
In addition to the topics below, Leslie can design a program to fit your specific needs.
LEARNING TO LISTEN
One of the biggest sources of unresolved conflict is people aren’t listening to each other. As Will Rogers said: “Congress is so strange, someone stands up to speak, nobody listens and then everybody disagrees.” Positive outcomes begin to unfold when we learn to listen, really listen. Creativity is provoked, collaboration inspired, solutions discovered. Most of us know it would serve to be a better listener. We get better at something with practice. This course will give you grounded, practical skills to support you in becoming a better listener.
My approach to team is to create a vital, active process moving people toward a shared vision of what is possible and facilitating grounded action in turning possibilities into reality. It is amazing how the corporate environment can change after just one day of learning together. Partnerships are fostered, allies are created, relationships are strengthened, strategies created with a commitment to action.
PRINCIPLES OF EFFECTIVE RELATIONSHIPS
Life is relationship. Business is relationship. Success in life and in business occurs when relationships are successful. Many problems at work can be distilled down to miscommunications, unclear agreements, and blame, blame and more blame.
This seminar draws on Leslie’s more than 25 years of experiences helping people lose the blame and instead create successful relationships. This seminar is a practical, fundamental course in learning to improve any relationship.
PROBLEMS TO SOLUTION
Fostering a solution focused environment empowers people to greater levels of creativity and collaboration. Problems take the backseat to possibilities. Instead of being fascinated with problems and how they got that way, learn to be a lover of solutions. This workshop teaches strategies for change in order to trigger immediate improvements in both work and personal relationships.
Leslie Sann manages to use her gently delivered relationship insights and methods to transform a group of business associates back into human beings.

She taught us to lead with our hearts and think about not only the other person but our part in each and every situation. Every company should spend some time learning from Leslie.
