Death By Meeting

Workshop Experiences with William Frank Diedrich

How to Think Like a Leader and an Artist

 Changing how you see to find new opportunities and solutions

Most humans live their lives as centers of attention, focused on how others and the world affect them. We achieve some measure of adulthood as we begin to live as centers of influence—recognizing that everything we think, feel, say, and do has an effect on the people around us, upon our bodies, and upon our life circumstances. A spiritual adult is one who has developed his/her emotional and spiritual intelligences. As an adult we no longer need to focus on our own needs, but we know that our needs are met. We can focus on our respective purposes for being on earth.

In this workshop, Sculptor Joshua Diedrich and Facilitator William Diedrich take you through several exercises that will assist you to:

As a result conflicts, both external and internal, will be resolved.

Participants take the everything DISC profile online then meet in a workshop setting to discuss. My preferred group is a team or department of people who work together. In this setting we learn the DISC basics and spend time in pairs using the DISC Comparison Reports. These reports facilitate communication and relationship building between team members.

How do we build strong, healthy relationships at work and in life? How do we influence our organizations—also our families in more positive ways? In this interactive presentation participants   will be given tools and awareness which you can apply to answer these questions for yourself.
