As a leader, sometimes you just need a reset. A reset is not the same as a reinvention. A reset happens when you shift your mindset, capture one new idea, or get peer support. Move one gear and everything aligns. Less is more, and simple is better. Each series consists of three 90-minute Zoom sessions in one month, facilitated around one topic. Limited to 12 leaders these virtual roundtables create an intentional environment of intimacy, trust and engagement. Participants are invited to continue conversations and group coaching through a private online forum and receive private email coaching from Marlene Chism.

RELEASE RESISTANCE

Resistance shows up in many ways, from complaining, arguing, and procrastinating. Every leader eventually has to deal with a resistant employee, but even avoiding a difficult performance conversation is a sign of internal resistance. Resistance is a huge barrier to forward movement, growth, and productivity.

BOUNDARIES

Boundaries can either work for you or against you. When boundaries work for you, people respect your time and space, and your relationships are symbiotic. When boundaries work against you it’s either because you don’t know how to set a boundary or the boundaries you set have limited your growth and possibilities.

RELATIONSHIPS

Relationships are either a source of drama or a source of renewal. You can’t change other people, but when you change yourself your relationships also change.  If you are ready to see relationships in a new way join us in February.

CHANGE

Do people really fear change? People change all the time. They get married, get divorced, change jobs and move. What people really resist is uncertainty, overwhelm, and absence of choice. As a leader, your effectiveness increases when you know how to dial up or dial down certainty to navigate change with more ease and fluidity

EMPOWERMENT

Every behavior is either an expression of power or an expression of powerlessness. Outward expression always mirrors inner experience. Complaining, blaming, and neediness is always an expression of powerlessness. If you are a leader and you want to shift the culture from a victim mindset to an empowered state, or if you simply want to expand your own sense of power, this roundtable is for you.

INVISIBLE FORCES

An invisible virus called COVID-19 disrupted the entire world. We couldn’t see it so many didn’t believe it existed, until they experienced the visible effects. Invisible elements eventually manifest in physical form to shape culture as well as our personal lives. In this roundtable we talk about the invisible forces that leaders can use to shape culture and transform lives.

COMMUNICATION

All of us have behaviors, mannerisms, and habits that offend others. We notice wrong behavior of other people, but rarely look at how we might also have some blind spots. As leaders, we have to become an example of consciously creating. We do this by being authentic, yet balancing authenticity with emotional control, and radical listening.

ACCOUNTABILITY

When accountability is used to force compliance, people tend to skew the number, hide information, and avoid seeing the truth. When you talk about creating a culture of accountability do people roll their eyes? Or do they tense up? It doesn’t have to be this way.

What if you could create a culture where employees crave feedback and willingly course-correct without being reprimanded?

People say change is hard. It is, but it is much more achievable when you have Marlene Chism as your coach and mentor to guide you through the process. I was lucky to have Marlene as an executive coach during a period of time where I needed to change my leadership style. I learned a lot from her on dealing with leadership challenges, building a high-performing team, and providing a vision to guide and unify my teams. Once Marlene helped me identify leadership areas to work on, she was tireless in making sure those new habits stuck. I attribute a lot of my success in navigating a difficult period in my career to Marlene.
