“Kiss Butt vs. Kick Butt Leadership!”
(Don’t Let Other People’s Butts Get in the Way!)

2) Do you find your leadership and communication style to clash with others like opposite poles of the earth?

3) Leadership and communication go hand-in-hand, but does everyone on your team really want to hold hands?

4) Ever wonder how the “kumbayas” get along with the heavy hitters, the “movers and the shakers” of this world?
 
Often times we are thrust to work with a variety of personalities.  Some may be compatible while others confrontational.  Some may be friendly and yet others are quite fearful.  Do you ever feel that your own leadership and communication styles just don’t fit?
 
Good leaders know when it’s appropriate and advantageous to be kissing butt and can also distinguish when it’s time to start kicking butt.  If all you’ve been doing is kissing butt, then you know how much IT STINKS!
 
This workshop will help you discover how your personality traits influence your own leadership style and how those traits are accepted and received.  Learn 11 ways the heavy hitting “Donald Trumps” and the soft spoken, peace-loving “Mother Theresas” really can (or can’t) make it work!
