In these times of hyper-competition, change, and increasing uncertainty, leaders are tasked more than ever before with achieving results.  Because our results are impacted by our ability to think and communicate with others, our inability to understand and manage ourselves and others can get in the way of accomplishing our goals, making decisions, and solving problems.  Sometimes we are our own worst enemy when it comes to improving our productivity!

Have you ever wondered why someone (perhaps you!) has become defensive or emotional for no apparent reason?  Unfortunately, a person’s ego has a huge impact on how that person deals with reactive interpersonal situations.  During this session you will gain some insight into understanding the nature of your thinking and reasons why people become emotional.  You will learn how to defuse defensiveness in yourself and others, and how to identify values and ego needs that might curtail your success.

John has been involved in organizational development for well over 20 years. He has a broad spectrum of experience in a variety of industries: utilities, aerospace, manufacturing, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, banking, telecommunications, entertainment, and government, among others.

John is a polished presenter and speaker and has designed and delivered programs in dialogue, leadership, mental model shifting, performance management, change management, and emotional intelligence. He holds a J.D. Degree and a Master’s Degree in Organizational Behavior and has a unique ability to apply practical application of theory to real business challenges in a way that is thought-provoking, challenging, and entertaining.
