Leadership Modules

Leadership Instruments used:

Leadership modules are led by Dr. Lanny Hass, Dr. Joy Morgan-Fleming, and Dr. Rhonda Sutton. In addition to class time discussing use of instrument results, participants receive one-on-one coaching on use of their instrument results. This data driven process will allow us to use valid, reliable, relevant psychometric assessments related to our model of Mastering Self, Relationships and Organizational Action. Assessment results are confidential.

FIRO-B® (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation Behaviour)

“The FIRO-B® instrument identifies how you tend to behave toward others and how you want them to behave toward you. Your FIRO-B results can help you increase your self-understanding in a number of important areas, including how you handle interpersonal relationships and your own social needs, how others perceive you, and how you see them.”  FIRO-B Profile.

Crucial Conversations®

“Crucial Conversations is a course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics—at all levels of your organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll begin to surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.”
