Workshops & Groups

“Take a workshop so you learn to give and get criticism.” Jodi Picoult

According to our 2014 survey, the greatest professional development concerns of most companies, organizations and groups tend to be:

  • managing change
  • young leaders
  • being assertive
  • team cohesiveness

In my opinion, managing change is the all-encompassing challenge, while the other areas make change management possible. If unaddressed, the issues that can result include departments working in silos, internal conflicts that get acted out rather than talked out, lack of trust between departments and especially towards senior management, unmotivated and uninspired employees who do the bare minimum, an unwillingness in staff to take risks and speak up and leaders who micro-manage rather than delegate and empower their team.

The Courage Crusade’s group workshops and programs are designed to help groups address these issues using courage, allowing them to successfully navigate transition as a team. Billy’s personal experiences and credentials have made him an expert on courage and provide the foundation for this work. In addition, Billy’s vast experience working with groups and naturally engaging approach will get your group excited about the possibilities that lie ahead.
