Todd Long brings real value

As the developer and facilitator of Spotlight’s emerging leader program, Todd Long brings real value to up-and-coming leaders both inside and outside of a classroom setting. Inside, he provides an experiential learning environment where program participants build trust, gain confidence, and grow leadership skills. Outside, he continues to develop emerging leaders through coaching sessions, links to learning resources, and his own podcast (Toddcast). We consider Todd a true partner and appreciate his passion, authenticity, wisdom, and commitment to deeply understanding both our business and culture.

Fun and Interactive

The Performance Leadership workshop offers your leaders a very practical look at the phases of development. Using terminology and concepts that everyone can relate to, Todd walks attendees through how to develop employees and help develop them up to proficiency. His use of activities throughout the workshops helped solidify these concepts and is a fun and interactive experience for attendees. My leaders still bring up his workshop nearly a year later and discuss how they are applying the concepts learned.

Creating a Culture of Feedback

Todd delivered a fantastic session called “Creating a Culture of Feedback” at our Liberty Hospital leadership retreat.  The material connected perfectly to the work our leadership team is doing to create a premier culture where employees thrive.  Todd taught us his six guiding principles for delivering feedback and helped us apply the principles with fun and memorable exercises.

Effective and Applicable

As an organization of working managers, Todd’s session with our leaders helped develop their arsenal in effectively leading their teams while balancing their individual workload. Almost a year later, I still hear from my managers on how effective the session was to their daily leadership.

Washington was on first base for the Kansas…

    Thoughtful Communication: Empathy in Conflict

    We all have feelings that I would call conflict emotions such as anger, irritation, and bitterness.  These emotions arise for a variety of reasons that stem from our past experiences, strong values, unmet expectations, and misunderstandings.  Just like me, I am sure you can reflect on your own experiences of conflict emotions within yourself and…
