Chapter PD:”Why isn’t anyone listening to me?”

January 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Have you ever been totally frustrated because you give instructions only to have the person/people to do the opposite? It can drive you crazy! And every time this happens it doubles or triples your workload because you have to keep circling back.

This engaging, interactive workshop will delve into a universal leadership issue, how to communicate effectively both one-on-one and in meetings to make your day run more smoothly. Since communication and workload are so closely linked we will also look at tips to manage your workload.

Through a series of thought-provoking exercises, participants will be guided through the process of identifying the keys to successful communication and how you can improve your odds of getting it right the first time. You will be provided with strategies and techniques to create better engagement with others and tips to better manage your workload. Have people listen to you the first time around and make your day easier!


  • Coping mechanisms during times of stress
  • Communications strategies for staff
  • Dealing with staff and approaching interpersonal issues
  • Step outside of your comfort zone – being uncomfortable can be a good thing
  • Having a framework within which to deal with difficult issues

Being a very passionate, self-motivated person, I didn’t understand what Spearhead could do to help advance my career past my own abilities. Spearhead Executive Coaching has given me a new light on what true leadership is and has provided me with an arsenal of tools to help me thrive in a competitive market, and for that I am eternally grateful!”
