September Lunch Meeting

Becoming a Competent Leader for Your Clients

True leadership isn’t simply a job role. It’s about setting a clear direction and engaging a team in positive motivation, behaviors, and communications to accomplish a unified goal.

Competent professionals recognize and engage in effective leadership skills whether working with employees, vendors, or clients, and in doing so, they increase the success of everyone involved.

This workshop focuses on engaging your leadership skills for the benefit of your clients. As such, participants will learn:

  • The main traits of a successful leader and how they apply to working with clients.

    Karen D. Nutter, Certified Master Coach
  • How to create a client-focused team.
  • How to recognize the basic communication styles of others, and how to adjust your style to increase your connection and influence.
  • The benefits of active listening in business relationship building.
