Leadership is a Tough Gig

Have you ever wondered if the way you communicate with others is sabotaging what you really want? I have. It’s easy to use shame to get people to do what we want them to do. The truth is, it works, and that’s what has been modeled for us. But in the long run, fear-based communication strategies, like shame, sabotage what we really want. 

We want a healthy team culture, but the fear of being shamed makes people hide their mistakes. We want innovation, but the fear of being shamed makes people afraid to bring their best ideas. We want high retention rates and enduring teams, but shame makes people quit. 

Turnover is costly. We will spend up to 1.5x an employee’s salary to replace them. Even more than that, the mental health crisis around the world is real and toxic workplace cultures are major contributors. With 70% of Millennials today looking for another job in search of “better”, it’s time for us to learn how to lead in the new marketplace with shame-free feedback strategies that create a healthy culture in which our best people want to stay. 

I know you want to be different. You want to be a nontoxic leader who protects the mental health of your employees and shapes a high-performing team that is marked by engagement, innovation, and trust. 

If you’re ready to take your leadership to the next level, I want to help you. In my 8-session masterclass, you’ll learn how to use nontoxic, shame-free, trust-based communication strategies to transform your team and create a healthy culture. My clients even say they have taken what they learned and applied it to their personal relationships and have experienced true transformation.

Years ago, my frustrations led me to communicate in ways that actually sabotaged my success. Today, I’m a professor-turned-coach with a Ph.D. in communication and I’m passionate about training leaders and their teams to do one of the toughest things they’ve ever done- take a hard look at the way they communicate and decide it’s time to do it differently.  

The Eagle Communicator is an 8-session masterclass for local leaders that will meet in person in Monument, Colorado on Thursday afternoons from 1-3pm. Winter 2024 cohort begins January 18th.
