Leadership Development

Reality Based Leadership Development Day


There are many aspects to reality based leadership. The August RBL Development Day was just the beginning for many of us so here are additional resources for you to further your RBL skills.

1. Here is a link to download the SBAR tool (for venting and 'hey, do you have a minute?' moments). There is also a video to share with teams to start the conversation when people download the tool.

2. Below is the link to get the Employee Value Equation Self-Assessment where people can calculate their own drama level and discuss with their teams.

Shareable link:

3. I made this Drama Cheat Sheet Coaching Template that outlines what tool or technique can be helpful depending on the source of drama being experienced. I've included the PDF download in this email.

4. Free 12-week email campaign of our 6 main coaching tools to shift energy away from drama to results, clarity and intentional action moving forward. We covered the SBAR and will cover the remaining tools in our journey together.

Others can sign up as well to learn and discuss the tools at:
