Empowering Your Tortoise, Your Hare
and Your Hippocampus

A Neuroscience-based
Leadership Empowerment System

For executives, team leaders, employees and job seekers
pursuing advancement
with Donna Dahl

Description: This system is designed to facilitate, support and foster growth in personal development at the same time as it contributes to workplace productivity, feelings of satisfaction, team alignment and leadership skills among all members of staff. This set of four workshops may be delivered individually, as a series of 90-minute sessions or as a full-day, 6-hour program.
A pre-workshop meeting with the organizer(s) is required to identify your preferred outcomes. We begin by articulating how you add value and improve lives. The four sessions are as follows:

Session One – Defining who you are, the primary and secondary roles you perform and how your strengths help you fit into manifesting your big picture.
Session Two – Combining your role and your goals. Showing off your strengths. Gaining recognition.
Session Three – Expanding your communication skills within the context of your role.
Session Four – Addressing big-picture health matters to support overall well-being.
Optional Extra Activity – Future-pacing your strategy to achieve your goals. Individual and confidential review of each participant’s goals in a 30-minute coaching call. Fee determined by number of participants.

My Commitment to you

Building confidence and empowering team spirit is my unwavering commitment to you! I want your team members to simultaneously grow their skills in leadership and collaboration as they develop into effectively functioning units.

Low levels of engagement, a lack of sharing the workload and difficulties experienced in sharing space are not acceptable and deserve to be a thing of the past.

Working with your executives, leaders, individuals and teams to develop strategies to become more productive is at the heart of the work I do.

Through my innovative and proven 4-step system, Empowering Your Tortoise, Your Hare and Your Hippocampus, your target audience will experience greater feelings of inspiration and higher levels of engagement.

Your belief that things can be better creates space for things to be brighter. It provides opportunities for the tactics of the past to dissolve and be replaced with an improved workplace culture via confidence building activities and celebrations benchmarking your successes.

By this I mean that
• employees will feel more recognized for their individual contributions,
• project leadership roles will rotate to facilitate the development of leadership skills and
• improved communication skills will contribute to improved relationships. among team members.

Note: This workshop series is built on workplace issues raised in the book Lessons I learned from the Tortoise written by Donna Dahl
