Your company promotes Kim, the rising star but doesn’t give Kim the development needed to ensure success. Kim’s open door policy becomes a revolving door of complaints, excuses, and regrets. Kim doesn’t know where to start. Kim avoids difficult conversations because of a lack of skills, lack of confidence, and fear of conflict. As a result Kim’s employees lose trust, morale is lowered, absenteeism rises and turnover is the next sign of workplace drama.
We Need a Workshop!!
When Kim’s boss, the owner or the Human Resources director calls us about Kim, the drama has usually gotten out of hand. The first words are usually, “We need a workshop! (Wouldn’t it be great if a workshop really was a magic bullet?) Truth be told, if you knew how to fix the problem, wouldn’t it already be fixed?
We believe in being transparent so here’s something you need to know: A workshop can be a nice starting place, but you will be disappointed if you expect to solve a multi-faceted problem with a one-and-done workshop. Stop Workplace Drama workshops can start a transformational process, but sustainability happens through practice and support, and identifying the correct initiative.
So, do you need a workshop?
Maybe. We do them all the time. Workshops are perfect for association meetings. Workshops are fantastic if your company has a once a year retreat or a quarterly leadership development initiative. We also do workshops as part of bigger initiatives, so don’t get the idea that workshops aren’t a great idea. We love them!
Kim might pick up a technique or two. Who knows Kim might be a fast learner and be motivated to practice, practice, practice.
But, don’t forget…
Kim might also need coaching. You may need consulting to develop a customized program for the entire leadership team. You may need a combination of group coaching, leadership development and executive coaching. There’s no way to know exactly what you need until we have looked at your objectives and intended outcomes.

Marlene, I cannot tell you how much your presentation was appreciated. I have heard great comments from our clerical staff to our doctorally prepared faculty. You packed a mighty wallop into an hour.

Through your teaching, I realized I could change my reactions. I can look at the word, people, and situations differently and realize that maybe what I thought wasn’t really true. I don’t have to be right all the time. In fact I relish being wrong! Somewhere in our time together last year, you gave me the words “what if” and it changed my life. I am different today because you gave me powerful tools and I was willing to use them.
