UNLEASHED PODCAST: MIKE FEINER ON HIGH PERFORMANCE LEADERSHIP
RHINOMIND COACHING PODCAST: HIGH PERFORMANCE LEADERSHIP
Values-Based Leadership (90 Minutes) or (2 1/2 hours):
We've all read in the past few years about ethical lapses at General Motors, Goldman Sachs, American Apparel, Volkswagen, Theranos and Takata to name just a few organizations where leaders have slid down a slippery slope. One lesson we can take from these examples is that acting on our values in the workplace requires skill as well as conviction, insight as well as courage, regardless of what level we are within the organization. This session challenges you to discover effective ways of dealing with moral dilemmas in the workplace, and explores questions including: How do you interact with others when you feel your personal values are threatened? What personal conflicts arise in situations that deal with ethical issues? How important are personal strategy and style for dealing with values-based situations?
Leading and Managing (1/2 day):
Leadership can be a daunting proposition. On the one hand, leaders need to communicate, motivate and inspire. On the other, leaders must navigate through the endless activities involving meetings, budgeting, customers, and operational performance. In this session Mike Feiner discusses these two very different sets of activities, clarifies the difference between leading and managing, and offers specifics on how to lead and motivate people to excel.
Secrets of High Performance Leadership (90 minutes):

The Laws of Leadership (60 minutes):
There's no mistaking what a great leader does. The real challenge is knowing how it's done. In a hands-on, plain-speaking, pragmatic style, Mike Feiner offers insightful laws covering everything from managing tough bosses and difficult subordinates, to leading uncooperative colleagues, to galvanizing fractious teams.
The Challenge of Leadership (60 minutes):
Getting an organization to operate at peak effectiveness is a huge leadership challenge. Mike Feiner explains why effective leadership is so difficult, and offers real hands-on, practical solutions on how to muscle-build a leadership culture that achieves extraordinary results.
Leading Change (60 minutes):
Leadership is all about producing change, so that an organization is adaptive to new competitors, new products, new customers, new markets, and new regulation. Yet impassioned speeches don't get employees to accept change. Leading change requires attention to lots of details, including those parts of the organization which are likely to be the most resistant. Mike Feiner explains how to go about planning and implementing a change effort that produces the desired results.
What HR is Really All About (60 minutes):
As Chief People Officer at Pepsi-Cola for 15 years, Mike Feiner built an HR organization that was heralded as one of the most influential, impactful and respected HR organizations in corporate America. In this session he explains what accounted for his organization's credibility, and describes what he believes is HR's overarching role.
High-Performance Leadership (Custom programs of 1-2 days):
