Topic: Passport to Leadership

Description: This presentation covers three key elements of successful leadership. The lessons are delivered through humorous and emotion filled stories, group activities, and engaging exercises. Dima utilizes her global business experience and background in leadership training with Fortune 100 companies to communicate the essence of leadership. The three sections of the presentation cover:

Dare:  Leadership starts internally with confidence, self-awareness, and self-worth. To be effective, individuals must face the internal negative beliefs that inhibit personal and career growth; they must dare to shatter their fear of failure, the worry of being judged, and the pursuit of perfection. 

Rise:  Great leaders focus on the human element, support their team every step of the way, and stay connected with them as they climb the mountain of leadership. The leader rises as the team rises. The world needs dedicated leaders that care and focus on employee engagement and team morale. 

Inspire:  Great leaders challenge the norm and  envision how things could be better than they are. They take bold actions to create a better future for their team, their organization, and themselves.

Topic: Leadership Starts from Within

Dealing with low self-awareness, confidence, and self-worth has negative implications on the leader’s effectiveness and influence on the team and the business performance. 
 
Dima believes that the world is hungry for self-aware leaders who can create a positive impact on organizations and throughout communities. This type of leadership starts from within through self-leadership by developing confidence, self-awareness, and self-worth. As the first step in the journey to self-leadership, Dima motivates audience members to stop and think about their uniqueness, brand identity, goals, aspirations, and internal limitations that are holding them back. Next, the audience is provided with the tools they need to hone in on their unique attributes and conquer the internal limitations that directly affect business performance, teamwork, and employee engagement. Finally, the audience members will be led to break the routine cycles that keep many stagnant in fear, become more self-aware, open their eyes to their potential, and develop the courage to take action.
