I hope it is obvious from the main content that my main service is conducting customized facilitated training for intact work groups (leadership teams, boards/councils, departments).
At my discretion, I also have 2 more offerings available on a limited basis:
Stop the Madness:
Addressing overwhelming workloads with ‘Noble Selfishness’
This 3 ½-hour workshop is designed for intact leadership-team members to take together, at the same time. The leadership teams can be in public or private organizations.
The reason for it being an intact-group experience? Because the material presented combined with the facilitated discussion involves potential cultural changes along with shifts in an individual’s time management.
Even though there is a short workbook to go with this session, I continue to practice facilitative training to guide individuals and the group for better workload management.
The 3 goals of the session are to guide participants to create a personal roadmap that would lead to:
- adding more value to the organization than ever before
- feeling greater job satisfaction
- not adding an extra minute to their workdays
This unique session treats participants as human being rather than human doings.
A major part of the power of this workshop is the facilitated discussion where participants get to share some or all of their personal-roadmap ideas and get the approval/buy-in from their colleagues (or manager) right then and there.
Some of the concepts introduced include “Noble Selfishness,” “The Quadrant Where Dreams Go To Die,” “Power Hour,” “DO vs. do,” “Q2 Elephants,” and “Squirrels & Other Time Villains”.
Gregg facilitated a retreat for our new City Council and helped us identify, agree on and prioritize the key challenges facing our community. He also helped us communicate and collaborate more effectively with staff leadership. Without a doubt, the retreat was time and money well spent thanks to Gregg.
Gregg’s unique style of engagement with our group created a thirst for ‘the next great step’ in our team’s own success and future. I can honestly attest to the fact that we are better today as a result of Gregg’s empowering and engaging approach.
Each member of our leadership team approached me individually yesterday to tell me how much they enjoyed your session and how appreciative they were. They feel much better about our direction as a team. You have a great ability to guide groups through challenging issues and help them come out the other side with vision and purpose.
What participants say about “Stop the Madness”:
It was a great day for us. The whole group found value in our time with you and we will be discussing how we can use what we learned to improve our processes within the organization. All of our members learned nuggets they can incorporate into their work as well.Breckenridge (Colo.) Assistant Town Manager Shannon Haynes
Gregg, thank you for our training this week; great feedback from those who attended. We look forward to the next one.Frisco (Colo.) Town Manager Nancy Kerry
One-on-One Professional Coaching
Or what I call “behind-the-scenes support”
I confess that I love to coach individuals. In part because it allows for high-level customization on almost a minute-by-minute basis.
As with my group work, I:
- guide the conversations with the individual’s context issues and desired results in mind
- provide relevant handouts at the appropriate time to help add significant value
- email written summaries after every session.
What Coaching Clients have said:
What’s next? – Leaders Edge
Gregg is an outstanding professional coach. I appreciate the individualized and personal approach Gregg brings to his clients. I always understood that his work with me was designed around my unique professional and personal development goals. Gregg provided tools that put special focus on the coaching areas we agreed to tackle and he encouraged me to be personally accountable for my own success – during the coaching sessions and in the future.
What’s next? – Leaders Edge
Gregg Piburn has provided the anchor and stability I have needed in my professional career. He is very insightful and has provided feedback and suggestions that have helped me deal with both individual and professional challenges. His talents and skills are exceptional and he can help anyone at any stage in their career.
Because of my focus on group work, I limit my workshop and coaching services.
