TLG Workshops

The TLG Approach

TLG’s approach to learning and development mirrors higher education by using a curricular style to offering workshops. We design many of our offerings in a way that allows participants to progress from one level of engaged learning to the next level. This process reinforces what participants have learned previously while providing a consistency that enhances their ability to retain useful and relevant information. We believe, this approach increases individual’s confidence in applying knowledge and skills they have acquired within their work environments.

TLG also tailors offerings to align with the needs and desired outcomes expressed to us by clients during our pre-workshop consultations. Clients find our pre-workshop discussions beneficial and reassuring because it allows them to provide guided input before the event, resulting in increased buy-in leading up to the workshop. At TLG, we recognize that one size rarely fits all; cooker cutter, one-and-done sessions don’t easily transition into lasting behavioral change; and the flavor of the month is often only satisfying temporarily. We are a solution based consulting firm from beginning to, well, as long as you need us.

Speed of Trust

Every interaction, work project, initiative, communication, strategic or tactical imperative you hope to accomplish is affected positively or negatively by trust. If your organization is experiencing the benefits of trust, then trust becomes a performance multiplier; whereby, if your team is going through a trust deficiency, everything endeavor takes more time and costs more money. Speed and Cost are two measurable variables, directly impacted by trust. Trust is a critical strategic lever that changes everything.

Covey says that trust is a measurable economic driver and the #1 competency of leaders. Fortunately, trust is also a learnable leadership skill. Speed of Trust™ has a proven record of helping leaders develop the skills that establish trust on every level, build character and competence, enhancing credibility, and creating leadership that inspires confidence.

Understanding and Appreciating Differences

A comprehensive, well-articulated workshop reviewing the business relevance of diversity, inclusion, and engagement. These sessions can be tailored to address the specific need of individual contributors, managers, senior leaders, and board members.

What the Sneetches Teaches

Featuring an animated aid that allows participants to humorously and comfortably explore how differences of race, culture and other dimensions of diversity affect our interactions.

Management Inclusion and Engagement

With diversity and inclusion continuing to be in the forefront of many corporate training programs, TLG moves individuals and organizations to what we believe to be the real goal of all facilitated workshops and other Learning and Development sessions, which is deeper, more consistent employee engagement in the form of discretionary effort.

This workshop helps those in positions of leadership understand their role in creating inclusive environments that promote the highest levels of engagement for their teams.

Navigating Your Own Engagement

This workshop helps individuals take stock and ownership of the psychological and emotional components of engagement that are within their control. We also invite participants to explore how one or more dimensions of diversity may be creating challenges or impeding their ability or desire to engage more fully. 

Navigating Your Own Engagement focuses on the individual’s responsibility and capability to build trust, gain confidence, improve networks, and design strategies that would help create healthy navigational paths within the workplace.


The Emotional Intelligence Connection

Using the work of psychologist and EQ practitioner Daniel Goleman’s work as the foundation, this workshop explores the link between EQ and diversity, inclusion, and engagement.

The Impact of Our Messages

Informed by Mary Rowe’s work on micro-inequities and micro-affirmations, participants will be introduced to ways that conscious and unconscious communications can positively or negatively impact relationships.

Moving Beyond Unconscious Bias

This session picks up where most unconscious bias workshops end. Participants are introduced to TLG’s Anatomy of an Ism and learn the distinction between bias, stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination and their unique connections to our thoughts and behaviors. This session is consistent with TLG’s other facilitated sessions in how it invites honest dialogue, self-reflection, and analysis. Time and time again participants report gaining a clearer understanding of how to change behaviors to improve diversity, inclusion, and engagement.
