TRAININGS & RETREATS

Expert Guidance for Your Team

We offer a wide array of customized trainings to help propel your organization forward. 

Leadership Development trainings provide professional skill building for team members and managers at every level of the organization.   

Strategic Planning Retreats guide companies in strategic visioning and planning. 

 
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TRAINING 

We design custom trainings, from 3-hour workshops to week-long training programs, in which team members learn critical skills to help their organizations and teams grow and succeed. After an intake assessment, we create a detailed training plan to focus on the leadership competencies most needed in your organization. 

Any training package can be designed either as direct service, with an Integrative Inquiry trainer delivering content to the team, or as a Train-the-Trainer (TTT) program for managers and designated employees to take back to the organization. 

We offer both manager and team-wide sessions, depending on client need.

Sample Sessions include: 

Leadership Across Cultures: Working in Intercultural Teams

How do we envision an organizational culture that is inclusive and acknowledges a wide range of cultural perspectives? This workshop is designed for managers who work with multinational teams and who are looking for clear strategies for integrating company values and culture with the needs and perspectives of their employees. 

Transforming Teams: Creating Inclusive & Equitable Work Environments

Creating truly equitable workspaces requires understanding and acknowledging the presence of bias, power and privilege in the workplace and in society as a whole.  This workshop is for organizations interested in building awareness about power dynamics, micro-aggressions and biases within a group and coming up with new approaches and skills to work with others. It provides resources and techniques for both managers and employees to address equity head on in their organization.

The Power of Positivity: A Strengths-Based Approach to Management

Strengths-based leadership is an approach to management that focuses on identifying and developing individuals strengths in order to help them excel in their current positions. This session explores how this model applies in your context and what changes in processes and procedures you can make to better support your teams.

Champions of Change: Creating Cultures that Thrive in Transition

The only constant is change. Organizations that fail to embrace change are constantly battling challenges, unprepared for each change that always seems to arrive abruptly. Embrace change to learn from it rather than trying to fight or “manage" it. This will allow us to find ways to increase flexibility and agility to meet new needs as they arise.

Distributive Power Models: Understanding Power Dynamics in the Workforce

Power is a complex concept that is crucial to understanding and improving team dynamics. Discover a framework to examine power dynamics at play and your own connection to formal and informal types of power. Gain practical skills to help you transform your leadership style from “power over” to “power with.”

Institutional Transformation: Policy, Process & Leadership

In this workshop, participants will understand the three-pronged approach to institutional transformation and how their roles are significant in impacting the overall success of these initiatives by promoting and incorporating these policies and processes in their teams. 

"A skilled facilitator, Kate truly took the time to prepare for the unique individuals in our group, took her cues from them on the day of, and guided conversations with utmost professionalism. Her diverse work experiences combined with her education makes her more than capable of adapting to any group. Perhaps what distinguishes Kate from other educators is her level of self-awareness. Highly recommended!"

STRATEGIC PLANNING RETREATS

Planning Retreats can be extremely powerful ways to accelerate change in organizations, but only if facilitated and built out thoughtfully and equitably, and include follow-up application and assessments to ensure successful implementation. Our retreats work to create safe spaces that cultivate trust, collaboration, and transparency. 

We are happy to partner with organizations to create strategic planning retreats that meet your specific needs, whether preparing for annual reports, launching new projects or programs, revising budgets, or realigning team vision and goals.  We will work with you to ensure your organization leaves with clear actionable next steps, and can be contracted to further coach and support you as you transition to implementation. 

"Kate is talented, responsive and easy to work with. I have referred her to several colleagues because I appreciate the quality of her design skills, as well as her ability to listen to our needs and work efficiently to meet them."
