Half-Day Managers Training: Influence Your Team Through Authentic Leadership

Whether you lead a team of one or one hundred, being an authentic leader is the key to being effective.

Finding your voice and using your unique skills means that you can influence people in a way that is more natural; a way that your team will respond to positively.

But finding your authentic leadership style can be harder than it sounds - and once you find it, how do you use it to your advantage?

Making a small shift in how you present yourself and how you communicate with your team can catapult your effectiveness as a leader.

  • Put an end to unproductive meetings,
  • Elevate an underperforming team,
  • Boost your own confidence to get yourself to the next level.

In the span of one afternoon, Barbara Churchill, Confidence and Leadership coach for high-achieving professional women, will help you:

  • Leverage how others perceive things to make effective changes in how you lead them.
  • Discover the different communication styles within your team and larger organization, and how to interact with each
  • Identify when you’re allowing your inner voice from stopping you from making the decisions you want to make inner bully to make your decisions, instead of your wise inner leader
  • Conquer the self-doubt that keeps you from dealing with difficult people who are disrupting your team, standing up and speak your truth in a meeting, and confidently navigating stressful corporate change and every-day fires 

An authentic leader is not afraid to confront their internal critical voice, nor will they shy away from difficult conversations. 

In this training, Barbara will guide you through how to succeed at both, so that you and your team can all achieve your goals.


Barbara Churchill is the elite Confidence and Leadership coach for high-achieving professional women. She specializes in coaching senior level leaders and successful entrepreneurs. Having witnessed the power of her own intuition after going through a life-altering experience, Barbara is passionate about helping people find and trust their inner wisdom and embrace their leadership skills.

Barbara leads women’s retreats that help leaders unplug from the frenzy of daily life and reconnect with their vision and passion. She is a frequent media guest in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market and will do just about anything for chocolate.
