Begin your today by calling for your consultation!

As a leadership, organizational behavior, and strategy professor, Brent feels the most important aspect of becoming better is education. This can be in the form of a formal education, through a formal college or university program, self-education, or the school of hard knocks (aka on-the-job education). In any of these cases knowing who you are is first and foremost a good place to start. Through education Brent will work with you to realize your vision. He uses different methods of assessment from personal interview to formal assessments which provide important insights regarding your values and ideas. You will have the opportunity to discover and validate your personal vision, mission, and values. Most importantly working with Brent you can discover your true leadership style so you can influence success in an empathetic and productive environment.

It’s the perfect time to take the first step! Contact Scholar Consulting today!

In order for any action to take place one needs to believe it is allowed to take place. Many people do not feel they can take the steps needed to be a leader or to lead an organization, because they do not have the experience to know they can. Sometimes the key is figuring out what motivates you the most and using it as an empowerment tool. Through discussions and activities Brent will work with you to discover what it is that motivates you to take action. Using a wide variety of motivational theories from Maslow to Herzberg, Brent will help you discover your empowerment triggers so you feel confident that you have the ability to lead. Once you have discovered your true empowerment source, you will then learn how to positively influence others to do the same, creating an effective and efficient environment.

Engage your heart and mind to success, contact us today!

Engagement means to take action and get involved. Once you have the knowledge and the will to move forward, it is now time to stop the analysis paralysis and just do it! Often new and veteran leaders wonder what will happen if I do this? Then, get stuck in the thoughts because there are too many steps to taking action. The truth is until an initial action is taken then nothing will change. Doing nothing is an action; it is just a passive one. Brent prefers you take active action, and then evaluate what needs to happen next. Will you be correct 100% of the time, no but neither was Thomas Edison when he invented the light bulb. In this workshop, you will discover different ways you can actively engage in everything you do. You become an active participant in your success. You will learn tools to take you to the next level of active engagement, while leading others to their most engaged self.
