Become a great people manager
How to take a coaching approach vs. a traditional approach to people management
The ability to take a coaching approach to people management is a skill and an art. In this class, I unpack how a coaching approach is different from mentoring and traditional management or consulting. I also cover the vast benefits of taking a coaching approach to people management. I teach relevant coaching techniques including appreciative inquiry, that are applicable for great people management. I also offer strategies to help you get in the right 'head' and 'heart' space to have conversations with the level of neutrality and curiosity that are essential for coaching and required for these conversations to be constructive leaving your direct reports empowered to solve their own problems. This knowledge is then cemented through role-play practice with realistic scenarios and lots of feedback.

How to lead through uncertainties
Is your company going through a major transition? Perhaps there are layoffs, a departing CEO, or a company merger... and everybody is freaking out! In this uplifting Elective, I unpack dynamics at play during periods of rapid organizational change that will help to normalize your experience and give you common language to name what is happening. I then offer tangible evidence-based strategies I've learned as a leadership development coach to help all staff, from individual contributors to senior leaders, to navigate this kind of change with a greater sense of grace and ease. In addition, I will review how all staff can create new habits to better prepare for when "VUCA" change naturally ends.

Morgan Brinson, Rice University
This Leadership Level workshop with Tajan was amazing! Not only did I understand who is mainly impacted by impostor phenomenon, how this impacts individuals, and how common it is amongst most people, but I also learned concrete steps to growing as an individual. I honestly feel ready and excited to capture my negative thoughts to make me stronger and allow the growth I am capable of!
