  • Team Building & Organizational Health
    Your organization is no doubt full of intelligent and capable people, but this is only half the equation. Are your team interactions productive and aligned around a mutually shared purpose? Is your organization healthy; alive with high productivity, high morale, unmistakable clarity, and void of personal agendas? Most organizations cannot honestly answer these questions in the affirmative; and it shows! Team and organizational health does not come naturally. It takes a skilled guide and plenty of intentional practice. Drawing upon the most advanced biological, psychological, sociological scientific findings, Breaking the Chain Consulting will bring your organization to the place it was always meant to be; a productive, thriving, and desirable place to contribute and work.
  • Training
    We believe great teaching and training is less about knowing and more about doing. We believe the classroom is not merely a place to disseminate information; it is the laboratory where learners are allowed to engage, interact, and practice the new leadership skills they have been shown. This approach creates confidence and causes learners to be successful in the real world. We offer a variety of pre-designed courses that will enhance the quality of individual and organizational performance. In addition, we can custom design any training course to meet your leadership and organizational development needs. We begin by first examining those needs and then developing a unique and creative curriculum that will cause the learner to both know and do.

    • The Arch: Strengthening Yourself So You Can be a Stone for Others

      The world is a dangerous and broken place. The pressures that are consistently heaved upon every leader has effectively destroyed countless lives, families, teams, organizations, and societies. Life’s reality is this: It is not a matter of if you will face a stressful or traumatic event; it is simply a matter of when. Have you built yourself and your team into a structure that can actually withstand what is about to fall upon you? Better yet, when damaged, can your structure become even stronger with every bit of pressure that is added to it? Acute and cumulative stress is part of your job, so failing to prepare for this inevitability creates an unnecessary and potentially catastrophic risk. Using the metaphor of an arch, and drawing upon the established research of positive psychology, strengths-based psychology, resilience, organizational health, and workforce development; this presentation deeply examines what makes an ARCH so stable and strong. Like an ARCH, humans are also compression structures. However, unless we get the design just right, there are external tensions pulling away at your ARCH that will cause it to collapse. This course will show you how to get the design of your ARCH just right so you can not only survive, but even thrive, through the next storm that is just waiting to take you out.

    • Maintaining Civility in an Age of Rudeness & Entitlement

      Do you feel like an island surrounded by a sea of rudeness and entitlement? It is not easy to maintain civility in an age consumed with spreading dark messages of separation and discouragement.  Humans can be evil, but they also possess an enormous capacity for goodness. Given what you do for a living, you simply cannot afford to give into the darkness of incivility. If you do; you simply won’t last! This course exposes the darker side of the human condition, but it also provides hope. This course begins the only place where real change can occur; within you.  This course provides effective strategies on how to identify your triggers, manage your emotions, deal with challenging people, and deliver outstanding customer service; all the time.  These strategies not only work, but will also transform your personal and professional relationships. This class is for anyone in the business of dealing with people; so it’s for everyone.

    • The Pillars of Virtuous Leadership
      Nearly every problem in the world today can be linked to one simple thing; poor and unethical leadership; but it does not have to be this way. As a leader, you can play a profound role in overcoming this challenge. This course transcends a mere discussion about ethics. Rather, it seeks a meaningful dialogue and provides an action-oriented approach toward leading with virtue. This course specifically explores the pillars, the science, and the art of virtuous leadership. This course covers the intimate connection between leadership, teaching, and strength-based psychology. It also unveils one of the key obstacles that causes us to repeatedly fail at achieving virtuous leadership. This class is for aspiring and seasoned leaders.
    • Critical Thinking & Decision Making
      If most organizational problems are the result of poor and unethical leadership, then you can also be assured these leadership decisions were the result of incomplete thinking. Peak organizational performance is dependent upon quality thinking and decision making. Although thinking is something we naturally do as humans; critical thinking is not. Most of us have never been shown a model of critical thinking; at least not one that was not overally challenging and impractical. This course provides the learner with a useful and transformative model of critical thinking that can positively change how leaders think, perform, and lead. This class is for everyone.
    • Human Motivation & Engagement
      The science on human motivation and engagement is clear; our people are not reaching their fullest potentials and they are not actively engaged. This misalignment results in lost productivity, efficiency, effectiveness, resources, and money. Furthermore, there is a severe mismatch between what the science knows about human motivation and what our organizations continue to do. This course reveals what the science says about human motivation and employee engagement. It then provides leaders with strategies and tools they can use to artfully reverse the cycle of workplace disengagement. This class is for aspring and seasoned leaders.
    • Creating a Mentoring Culture
      Nobody gets through their personal and professional lives alone. We all need people, who can help push and pull us along the way. Most of us have been positively impacted by informal mentoring. However, how does an organization create a mentoring culture; a mutually beneficial relationship that is not based on winning, but rather upon learning and flourishing? This course examines the personal and organizational benefits of creating a formal mentoring service for your organization and how it can be done. This class is for aspiring and seasoned leaders.
    • Team Learning
      Today’s organizations depend upon team performance. Teams are often made up of a diverse blend of individuals. Although such diversity can make teams powerfully effective, this same dynamic can create challenges. Team learning does not come naturally. Individual learning is not the same as team learning. In fact, how we learn as individuals is in direct conflict with how we need to be learning, growing, and developing as teams. This course will show you how to stop wasting time and energy during your meetings, committees, and classroom environments. You will learn how to create a team that is a highly aligned and functional team of learners and performers. This class is for everyone.
    • Emotional Intelligence & Micro-Expressions
      Have you ever worked for a leader who simply knew how to connect with others? How about a leader who could simply read and effectively manage the room? It is likely this leader was not only intelligent; this leader was emotionally intelligent (EQ). For some, EQ comes naturally. For others, EQ is a challenge. Unlike the limitations of cognitive intelligence (IQ), EQ and the ability to read the emotions of others is something that can be developed and improved. We are often told to leave our emotions out of the workplace. This is not only humanly impossible, it is goes against what makes for an optimal work environment. Emotions need to be effectively managed and harnessed so leaders can maximize their performance and interpersonal relationships. Afterall, leadership is all about relationships. This course will teach the learner the four domains of EQ, strategies on how to improve their EQ, and how to effectively read the expressions of others. This class is for everyone.
    • Critical Incident Stress Management
      The world is a dangerous and broken place. Public safety personnel are first-hand witnesses to this, as they are routinely exposed to traumatic events. These accute and cummulative exposures are often considered part of the job. However, ignoring this dynamic severely damages one’s mental and emotional well-being. Every year we unncessarily lose great people because they were not provided the resources on how to survive traumatic events, organizational dissapointment, and cummulative stressors. Our job as leaders is to create an environment where our people can perserve, flourish, and thrive both during and following times of adversity and trauma. This course explores the debilitating effects of PTSD. It also examines an organizational case study as a model on how you might develop a similar service that provides psychological and emotional care, which can ultimately eliminate the destructive effects of PTSD. This class is for everyone.
    • Public Speaking & Presentation Skills
      Leaders may not like public speaking, but they also know it is something they must do. How we communicate determines whether or not we connect with others and if the information we convey is actually retained. This course shows the learner how to achieve maximum impact when you publically speak. In a fun and psychologically safe learning environment, the learner will be provided with opportunities to practice the art of public speaking, facilitation, and paralanguage. This class is for everyone.
    • Strength Based Leadership

      Whether you are a supervisor, parent, coach, line-level employee, or teammate; you are a leader. As a leader, you should be preoccupied with three essential questions:

       

      1) Why would anyone follow you?

      2) What do followers actually need from you?

       

      If you gave people what they need, might they begin to change the steady and current course of disengagement? Employee disengagement is plaguing or team and organizations. Contrary to what some might think, disengagement is not a generational problem; it is an organizational and cultural problem. We live in a deficit culture! We invest more time, money, and effort into showing people what is wrong them and trying to fix them rather than identifying and accentuating what is so right and brilliantly strong about them. Strength-Based Leadership gives the leader, the follower, and the organization what they tangibly need so they can maximize organizational health and performance.

  • Consulting
    We don’t claim to know everything. No consultant should. However, we do have a broad collection of knowledge and practical experiences regarding the art, science, and practice of leadership and organizational effectiveness. As your consultant, we will not tell you what you should you do. Instead, we will partner alongside of you to ask questions, make observations, offer insight, support, resources, guidance, and recommend best practices so you can overcome obstacles and maximize performance. We do this in a way that honors and respects your organizational history and culture.
  • Coaching & Mentoring
    Virtuous leadership, thinking, and performance do not come naturally. In fact, nobody gets through their careers and achieves this standard alone. We all need somebody who can show us how to improve, establish goals, keep focus, provide encouragement, and maintain accountability. That is what great coaches and mentors do and that is exactly what you can expect from a Breaking the Chain mentor and coach.
  • Instructor Development & Design
    This particular service exists to develop the consummate teaching leader. We are passionate about delivering a learning environment that is dynamic, highly participative, and rich with innovative instructional methods that internalize learning so it can be transferred to the real world. We think and perform like leadership teachers so you are empowered to do the same for those you teach and lead.

Instead, we will partner alongside of you to ask questions, make observations, offer insight, support, resources, guidance, and recommend best practices so you can overcome obstacles and maximize performance. We do this in a way that honors and respects your organizational history and culture.
  • Coaching & Mentoring
    Virtuous leadership, thinking, and performance do not come naturally. In fact, nobody gets through their careers and achieves this standard alone. We all need somebody who can show us how to improve, establish goals, keep focus, provide encouragement, and maintain accountability. That is what great coaches and mentors do and that is exactly what you can expect from a Breaking the Chain mentor and coach.
  • Instructor Development & Design
    This particular service exists to develop the consummate teaching leader. We are passionate about delivering a learning environment that is dynamic, highly participative, and rich with innovative instructional methods that internalize learning so it can be transferred to the real world. We think and perform like leadership teachers so you are empowered to do the same for those you teach and lead.
  • Team Building & Organizational Health
    Your organization is no doubt full of intelligent and capable people, but this is only half the equation. Are your team interactions productive and aligned around a mutually shared purpose? Is your organization healthy; alive with high productivity, high morale, unmistakable clarity, and void of personal agendas? Most organizations cannot honestly answer these questions in the affirmative; and it shows! Team and organizational health does not come naturally. It takes a skilled guide and plenty of intentional practice. Drawing upon the most advanced biological, psychological, sociological scientific findings, Breaking the Chain Consulting will bring your organization to the place it was always meant to be; a productive, thriving, and desirable place to contribute and work.
  • Training
    We believe great teaching and training is less about knowing and more about doing. We believe the classroom is not merely a place to disseminate information; it is the laboratory where learners are allowed to engage, interact, and practice the new leadership skills they have been shown. This approach creates confidence and causes learners to be successful in the real world. We offer a variety of pre-designed courses that will enhance the quality of individual and organizational performance. In addition, we can custom design any training course to meet your leadership and organizational development needs. We begin by first examining those needs and then developing a unique and creative curriculum that will cause the learner to both know and do.

    • The Pillars of Virtuous Leadership
      Nearly every problem in the world today can be linked to one simple thing; poor and unethical leadership; but it does not have to be this way. As a leader, you can play a profound role in overcoming this challenge. This course transcends a mere discussion about ethics. Rather, it seeks a meaningful dialogue and provides an action-oriented approach toward leading with virtue. This course specifically explores the pillars, the science, and the art of virtuous leadership. This course covers the intimate connection between leadership, teaching, and strength-based psychology. It also unveils one of the key obstacles that causes us to repeatedly fail at achieving virtuous leadership. This class is for aspiring and seasoned leaders.
    • Critical Thinking & Decision Making
      If most organizational problems are the result of poor and unethical leadership, then you can also be assured these leadership decisions were the result of incomplete thinking. Peak organizational performance is dependent upon quality thinking and decision making. Although thinking is something we naturally do as humans; critical thinking is not. Most of us have never been shown a model of critical thinking; at least not one that was not overally challenging and impractical. This course provides the learner with a useful and transformative model of critical thinking that can positively change how leaders think, perform, and lead. This class is for everyone.
    • Human Motivation & Engagement
      The science on human motivation and engagement is clear; our people are not reaching their fullest potentials and they are not actively engaged. This misalignment results in lost productivity, efficiency, effectiveness, resources, and money. Furthermore, there is a severe mismatch between what the science knows about human motivation and what our organizations continue to do. This course reveals what the science says about human motivation and employee engagement. It then provides leaders with strategies and tools they can use to artfully reverse the cycle of workplace disengagement. This class is for aspring and seasoned leaders.
    • Creating a Mentoring Culture
      Nobody gets through their personal and professional lives alone. We all need people, who can help push and pull us along the way. Most of us have been positively impacted by informal mentoring. However, how does an organization create a mentoring culture; a mutually beneficial relationship that is not based on winning, but rather upon learning and flourishing? This course examines the personal and organizational benefits of creating a formal mentoring service for your organization and how it can be done. This class is for aspiring and seasoned leaders.
    • Team Learning
      Today’s organizations depend upon team performance. Teams are often made up of a diverse blend of individuals. Although such diversity can make teams powerfully effective, this same dynamic can create challenges. Team learning does not come naturally. Individual learning is not the same as team learning. In fact, how we learn as individuals is in direct conflict with how we need to be learning, growing, and developing as teams. This course will show you how to stop wasting time and energy during your meetings, committees, and classroom environments. You will learn how to create a team that is a highly aligned and functional team of learners and performers. This class is for everyone.
    • Emotional Intelligence & Micro-Expressions
      Have you ever worked for a leader who simply knew how to connect with others? How about a leader who could simply read and effectively manage the room? It is likely this leader was not only intelligent; this leader was emotionally intelligent (EQ). For some, EQ comes naturally. For others, EQ is a challenge. Unlike the limitations of cognitive intelligence (IQ), EQ and the ability to read the emotions of others is something that can be developed and improved. We are often told to leave our emotions out of the workplace. This is not only humanly impossible, it is goes against what makes for an optimal work environment. Emotions need to be effectively managed and harnessed so leaders can maximize their performance and interpersonal relationships. Afterall, leadership is all about relationships. This course will teach the learner the four domains of EQ, strategies on how to improve their EQ, and how to effectively read the expressions of others. This class is for everyone.
    • Critical Incident Stress Management
      The world is a dangerous and broken place. Public safety personnel are first-hand witnesses to this, as they are routinely exposed to traumatic events. These accute and cummulative exposures are often considered part of the job. However, ignoring this dynamic severely damages one’s mental and emotional well-being. Every year we unncessarily lose great people because they were not provided the resources on how to survive traumatic events, organizational dissapointment, and cummulative stressors. Our job as leaders is to create an environment where our people can perserve, flourish, and thrive both during and following times of adversity and trauma. This course explores the debilitating effects of PTSD. It also examines an organizational case study as a model on how you might develop a similar service that provides psychological and emotional care, which can ultimately eliminate the destructive effects of PTSD. This class is for everyone.
    • Public Speaking & Presentation Skills
      Leaders may not like public speaking, but they also know it is something they must do. How we communicate determines whether or not we connect with others and if the information we convey is actually retained. This course shows the learner how to achieve maximum impact when you publically speak. In a fun and psychologically safe learning environment, the learner will be provided with opportunities to practice the art of public speaking, facilitation, and paralanguage. This class is for everyone.
