Excellence Unbound

Designed to embolden leaders, inspire creativity, and tap into the personal & professional power base that drives business performance! 


The key distinguishing factor between average performance and excellent performance is a leader’s level of Emotional Intelligence and self-awareness is the foundation of EQ. This two-day professional empowerment workshop builds self-awareness around the gaps that keep individuals and teams from creating optimal results. Using self-reflective exercises and group coaching, participants learn tools to enhance individual and team achievement. This investment in yourself, your leaders, and your teams fosters the personal accountability necessary to reach higher levels of personal and professional success.

Does your organization feel stuck?
Our unique program guides participants through a series of exercises to uncover the beliefs holding them back and create a renewed vision of possibility.

Are you striving to develop leaders?
Leadership breakdown occurs due to lack of awareness, blame, and self-doubt.  We coach leaders to identify patterns of behavior that limit their personal and professional impact. 

Are you experiencing conflict?
Clear communication, empowered decision making, and smooth collaboration make an organization work.  Without these elements in place, teams experience low morale and retention.  We provide tools to work through conflict by clarifying commitments and increasing accountability.

Do you crave higher performance?
Dynamic performance requires inspired thinking. We teach mindfulness and meditation practices to increase self-awareness, energize your team, spark creativity, and improve focus.

Participants will gain:

  • Greater self-awareness
  • Frameworks for value-based decision making
  • Tools for conflict resolution & clear communication
  • Accountability that drives effective leadership

"Excellence Unbound is an outstanding workshop that helps participants understand how their own mental models are holding back their performance in business and life. I learned a great deal about myself and how I can achieve more. This is an evidence-based program that is based on peer-reviewed research. If you're a human being, I encourage you to attend. If you work with human beings, I encourage your entire team attend Excellence Unbound."
"I’ve built a strong team but sometimes they get caught up in the small stuff and lose the big picture. Excellence Unbound was an outstanding way to get them all on the same page.  They came out of it with a strong, aligned sense of purpose."
