Leadership Training

Organizations across North America are facing tremendous changes and challenges with leadership and teamwork in the coming years. Those stepping into leadership and supervisory roles often face a critical skill gap. Our programs are customized and geared to provide participants with essential training and tools to undertake work in a rapidly changing context, often calling for more collaborative approaches. Training solutions are often backed by a combination of mentoring and coaching to sustain the learning and "make it stick" back in the work place.

Whether it is a one day program, a webinar or a series of modularized workshops, we provide training in the following areas:
  • Leadership Fundamentals
  • Teamwork and Team Leadership
  • Leading a Virtual Team
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Managing Across Differences - Generations, Cultures
  • Facilitation Skills/Train the Trainer
  • Coaching Skills
  • Mentoring Skills
  • Presentation Skills
  • Time Management and Personal Productivity
  • Communication Skills

Potentials Realized was founded in 2004 by Jennifer Britton, author of Effective Group Coaching (Wiley, 2010) and From One to Many: Best Practices for Team and Group Coaching (Jossey-Bass, 2013). Jennifer is considered a leader in the field of  group coaching and encouraging collaborative approaches in teams.

"I really liked your flexibility to change the program and allow us to make this real for our team – action plans. Thank you for that.”

"Terrific day! Typically, I find these sessions drag on, but this was not the case with this one. I felt engaged for the whole day. It flew by. I think that this has to do with relevance of topics, great facilitation and great planning."

You understand how to engage people, and I loved that your presentation was not only sharing your knowledge and expertise, with practical approaches, but also included personal reflections for us.”
