Leveraging our founder's training in law, coaching and psychology, BCL offers impactful learning programs focused on helping leaders create healthy, engaged and high-impact organizations.   Tailored to the specific needs of each client through a careful intake and exploration of the client's specific objectives and challenges, our training generally focus on the performance fundamentals outlined below. 

Leadership Development Programs

Managing For Employee Engagement

This program focuses on fundamental nature and source of high-impact engagement.  It focuses on  engagement as an innate capacity of all human beings and simply reflection of the quality and clarity of presence individuals bring to bear on their work in the moment.   It debunks prevailing myths about so-called obstacles to employee engagement and awakens leader to a new variable that profoundly influences virtually every dimension of their own performance and that of their teams and organizations.

Leading From Wisdom

A leader's impact expands in proportion to the depth and clarity of thought and the quality of presence they bring to bear on their work.  This program focuses on this largely-overlooked variable in leadership -- a variable we call "grounding."   Grounding is a quality which deepens as we gain deeper understanding and perspective on human nature and how it operates.   The purpose of this program is to deepen participants' grounding, impact and effectiveness as leaders through a more leveraged understanding of the nature of being human.  

Mastering Communication and Team Dynamics

Most interpersonal and managerial trainings try ti rely on techniques or practices to improve communication and collaboration.  These approaches ultimately fall short for the simple reason that "techniques" of any kind clutter the mind and stifle authentic expression.  People intuitively (and rightly) have no desire to use "techniques" when relating to other people and trying to get work done.

This program offers a better way.  Focusing on universal elements of human relationships, we help participants' gain a deeper understanding of how people and relationships work at fundamental levels. That understanding naturally steers people towards improved rapport and enhanced team dynamics, without reliance on artificial "techniques."  The result is a natural, unforced improvement in individual and collective sense of well-being and connectedness.    

Avoiding Conflict Without Stifling Debate 

This program offers an in-depth look at how to foster the healthy, free exchange of ideas and perspectives at work without fear of failure, disagreement, resentment or intractable conflict.
