Emotional Intelligence: Mastering Emotions in the Workplace

This workshop offers you awareness, strategies, and techniques based on research from the E.I. literature, Physiology, and many sources outside these fields. You will leave with new ideas about emotions, strategies for “surfing” emotions regardless of their intensity,  and knowledge of how to channel emotion toward your goals.
This will be a practical approach, not an academic one. It will be interactive rather than lecture-based.

Adults at Work: Mastering Egos and Emotions in the Workplace is an interactive, inspired, and practical workshop that will enhance your well-being and effectiveness at work (or in any other group you belong to.) Content and exercises offered in this workshop will increase your ability to:

• effectively handle negative behaviors and emotions
• transcend limiting beliefs
• decrease stress
• increase your positive  influence
• learn valuable and effective emotional intelligence techniques

Deep Change: How Individuals and Organizations Transform

This workshop is for anyone who needs to influence change or who is going through a change in an organization, large or small.
It is perfect for leadership teams.

-Learn how to navigate the territory of deep change.

-Answer the question that every leader asks: “How do I get people to change?”

-Avoid the typical change strategies that seldom work and learn what does work.


“Bill and Mike put on a wonderful seminar on Deep Change.  Anyone, from any level of an organization, can find a true understanding of the key stages and steps to handling deep change both in organizations and in everyday life.  As facilitators they take attendees on a journey of self-exploration, a better view of those around us, and the workshop has attendees work through problems the day of.  I recommend this seminar for individuals and teams!”  Nicole Murphy, HR Manager

"I found the interactive group sessions profoundly helpful.  Each of the individuals had a story that made mine seem not so large after all!   We were able to discuss their situations and how they were adapting.  It was very interesting to talk about everyone's story and fill out the sheets." Tom Russo, Manager, Electrical Engineering

The Master Work Series: A groundbreaking approach to creative leadership

Connecting leaders with masters in new fields.

Innovation, creativity, and breakthroughs take place at the edges of fields, where differing areas of study intersect. What is the edge? The edge is any place on the outer rings of your competencies and comfort zone, where perceptions and knowledge differ from your own. Exploring the edge is a catalyst for the cross-pollination of ideas, skills, and techniques that shift awareness. At the edge, we can gain new perspectives on unsolved problems, impossible visions, undiscovered opportunities. We can look in directions it never occurred to us to look before.  

How to Think Like a Leader and an Artist: 

Changing how you see, to find new opportunities and solutions

Part One of our Master Work Series

In this workshop, sculptor Joshua Diedrich will take you through several exercises designed to instantly re-wire your thinking, and help you see the world in a new way. Whether you believe you have talent or creativity, whether you have any interest in art or not, learning to see the world like an artist opens up a door to new possibilities for personal interactions, creativity, entrepreneurship, self awareness, and perception. You will learn to understand and change your own basic perceptions of your world, as you learn and practice the skills and perspectives of a master artist. You will obtain a new clarity that will allow you to comprehend subtleties in people and situations you may have missed in the past. This expansion of perception is your key to innovation, creativity, and potential breakthroughs in your work and in your life.
