Workshops

Designed to help you gain understanding of self and to help you optimize relationships with others.

People bring different skills, languages, preferences and styles to team dynamics.  My leadership workshops are designed to help you gain understanding of self and to help you optimize relationships with others.  All workshops are customized to meet the goals of the audience.

Multi-SessionTrainings
Transforming How Teams Interact
Communication Skill Advanced

Communication can make or break an organization. Without the necessary tools and techniques, companies struggle to collaborate, make decisions and work in teams. This course provides techniques that immediately establish rapport with others, strengthen relationships and avoid common conversational traps.

During this workshop, attendees learn to create an awareness for potential emotional triggers and develop strategies to mitigate potential impacts if leakage or bursting occurs at inopportune times. Participants will be provided with techniques to manage difficult conversations and strategies to break the cycle of  psychological gaming that prevents us from moving forward and allows us to focus on underlying issues and concerns.

Leading Change

Leadership is fundamentally about making choices and fostering change. Yet, for many reasons, leading change often has more failed attempts than successes. Change includes cognitive and emotional elements, and leaders must attend to both in order to be successful. 

In this workshop, participants will explore and discuss several principles of change, including identifying forces for change, initiated vs. imposed change, stakeholder mapping, and moving from visions to initiatives. The cohort will understand how to design for volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments while leading change forward. In this session, attendees will review the six inputs that leaders can use to build a better change process.

Coach Training Workshop

Our approach to coaching empowers leaders to grow their skills using the best of design thinking, user experience methodology, and leadership development. We believe that the best outcome happens when leaders  partner with stakeholders to leverage the ideas and execute on their mission. 

In this program, you will learn the International Coach Federation’s Core Coaching Competencies and Design Thinking Leadership Academy’s Constellation Model for leadership. Throughout the training, leaders will learn that insightful curiosity, empathic listening, and intentional design can transform their relationships. This module is designed to prepare the participants to be ICF trained and certified coaches.

Time and Attention Management

Have you ever considered that we have a set amount of energy that can get us through any given day? Our day-to-day professional responsibilities and tasks can become all-consuming. “Effective Time Management” is a call for us as leaders to stop and analyze the forces that constantly demand our time and attention and the choices we make every day that pull us away from needed strategic planning, visionary, and personal time.

This session will present six steps that leaders can take to more effectively manage their attention and make appropriate decisions in planning their time at work.

Communicating with Authority and Impact

It’s more important than ever to be a change agent and to command influence. However, it all comes down to your approach. Learn to leverage informal power — your ability to mobilize resources, drive change and create value for the organization as well as for yourself. 

Cohort participants will receive a full-day experiential workshop that empowers them to develop their individual authentic leadership styles and simultaneously foster a connected and trusting group dynamic through lecture, group discussions, storytelling, and theater exercises. Our training specialist will create a collaborative space, guide exercises, facilitate discussions, and provide the overall structure.

Leadership C.A.R.

The Leadership C.A.R. workshops are designed help you gain clarity, awareness and resilience. This series can be focused on personal development, leadership development or a hybrid of both. The program is based on personal experience as each exercise assists you with designing your personal toolkit for success.

Ebenum Equation (Ebony Smith) is Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Certified
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Personality Inventory

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that the seemingly random variation in people’s  behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. The interactive workshops helps individuals and organizations understand the four important components of professional development: communication, decision making, change management, and conflict management.

    • MBTI®  for Appreciating Differences– Build on employee strengths and develop target areas identified
    • MBTI® Personal Impact– Help clients clearly understand the impact of their personality type in key areas of their lives
    • MBTI® Communication Style– Improve individual and team communication
    • MBTI® Decision-Making Style- Help individuals make better decisions and more impactful contributions
    • MBTI® Stress Management– Describes the impact of stress on personality characteristics and provides tips for leveraging strengths to deal with stress effectively
    • MBTI® Conflict Style– Help individuals manage conflict and enhance relationships in the process
