This workshop is particularly useful for those who work in people-intensive environments. Based on the book, Straight Talk: Turning Communication Upside Down for Strategic Results at Work.

Focus and Trust in Teams

How do you measure effective teams? What are the underlying habits that distinguish the best teams? This workshop helps leaders appreciate the importance of two dimensions – focus and trust – in building teams. It covers the five habits of highly effective teams and assists leaders in understanding their role in the development of teams. It also includes an assessment tool to determine the current level of performance of the team and strategies to move teams to higher levels of performance.

Strategic Thinking and Planning

What are the key questions that strategic leaders need to ask? How do you facilitate effective strategy sessions? How do you pivot from thinking to acting strategically? This workshop engages leaders in the power of strategic thinking—and equips them with tools for advancing a successful strategic planning process.

Managing Effective Decision-Making Processes

What are the types of decisions? When is each type appropriate to use? What are the drawbacks of each approach? Decision-making is one of the most important things that a leader does – and one of the least understood. Participants in this workshop learn how to define different types of decisions and some of the common assumptions that lead to poor decisions.

HSBC Bank

Eric Douglas has accomplished what many in his profession have not: he’s mastered the ability to under-engineer the highly complex organizational change process. By simplifying the process and employing an intimate and open approach, he’s earned the trust and respect of our entire executive team. His success in identifying, distilling, and simplifying issues allows him to provide our team with a sophisticated, yet pragmatic array of easy-to-access tools that are tailored to our needs and that we’re able to put to work right away.

Early Edge California

I would highly recommend Eric Douglas as an executive coach. His knowledge and experience as a coach were invaluable to me during a critical period of organizational change. He pushed me to ask challenging questions about myself and my organization that led to improved effectiveness. And his guidance was invaluable as I made strategic decisions that took into account the fluid landscape, windows of opportunity, and greater connection and collaboration with other groups.

Sacramento Ballet

LRI is outstanding! Eric Douglas led the Sacramento Ballet through a challenging project of developing its first-ever comprehensive written strategic plan at a critical junction in the history of the organization. Eric’s leadership skills were superb as he worked to enlist the support of all stakeholders and facilitated discussions that allowed the organization to put into words its hopes and dreams for the next several years, while helping the project team remain focused on keeping the objectives realistic, achievable and measurable. I highly recommend LRI without any reservation.
