Invite SAIL to your campus to deliver any of the following private workshops. Train up to 50 participants without the need to travel.

Discovering My Leadership Voice

This one-day workshop will focus on assembling a plan for your leadership future through hands-on, interactive, engaging, and entertaining platforms. Participants will explore their own strengths and opportunities for growth in leadership in the following areas: goal setting/action planning, problem solving, addressing and resolving conflict, communication, organization and influence.

Leadership Resilience

Perhaps the greatest challenge that leaders in higher education endure is their ability to rebound from adversity. This workshop will explore the art and science of building resilience as well as a methodology for increasing resiliency skills through dialogue and understanding. This includes the ability to face the realities of situations, seek meaning and purpose, and re-invent mental models of success for the future.

Neuroscience in Higher Education Leadership

Recent findings in neuroscience and the field of leadership converge to offer spectacular insight and substantial evidence to how anxiety, emotions, and behavior influence performance and our ability to be emotionally nimble through times of stress. This hands-on, interactive workshop will explore how five frameworks (Organizational, Behavioral, Biological, Cultural, and Evolutionary) come together to shape our workplaces into spaces of creativity, or crisis.

Leading High Performing Teams on Campus

Improving your skills as a leader will inspire both you and the individuals on your team striving to achieve the team’s objectives. You will leave this session with strategies for team building, coaching your team, creating an inclusive environment, addressing the challenges facing higher education, setting expectations, and keeping accountability at the forefront.

Leading Through Change & Conflict
This leadership development session will arm you with strategies to focus on the leadership skills needed in higher education to reorganize people when needed, create positive working cultures using straight talk, lean into difficult conversations and provide feedback. This session will explore the impacts of social media for leaders in an academic culture, and prepare you to lead a multi-generational workforce amidst a tidal wave of change.
