Program Description:      

Most people associate the word "Sensei" with "teacher." That works!  Sensei literally translates as "one who went before." If you're a consultant, coach, manager or advisor - people seek your expertise and leadership. They expect you to be their guide- the Sensei.

As we say in the dojo, they expect that "If you talk the talk; you walk the walk!"

In this highly interactive session you'll learn the essential qualities of Sensei Leadership and how to apply these principles to become more effective - both personally and professionally!  Jim Bouchard introduces several unique leadership tactics and guides you through a roll-up-your-sleeves session so you can put these practices to work...today.


This program explores the qualities of leadership at all levels of the organization.

You’ll gain an in depth understanding of the mindset of authentic and compassionate leadership to build trust and credibility, and establish effective and meaningful communication with peers, administrators, and customers.


You can expect to leave this session equipped to apply the principles of Sensei Leadership:
  • Prepared to focus on customer needs and outcomes by applying the teaching modality of the Sensei- teaching and leading by asking effective questions.    
  • Inspired to apply these principles to cultivate more effective interactions, with peers, administrators, and customers.
  • Knowing the difference between "leaders" and "managers", and why that difference is critical to the success of an organization, regardless of size!
  • Motivated to pursue continual personal and professional growth and development for the benefit of your organization, your customer -- and yourself!
