Dreyfus University Center, Legacy Room​

Friday, April 13, 2018 - 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

How do we create positive impact in our lives and our worlds? How can we increase our effectiveness as influential leaders in the service of the things that matter most? During this course, we will explore the intersection of impact, influence and leadership. You'll learn:

  • the definition of influential leadership
  • the gifts and downsides of typical methods of influence and persuasion
  • ways to create impact and influence in a way that is aligned with your values and priorities
  • your individual motivators and motivation type, via The Motivators Assessment (assessment through The Culture Works included with cost of registration)
  • ways to leverage motivation (of both ourselves and others) for greater impact and influence
  • everyday influence boosters and busters
  • ways to make these concepts real in everyday life

About the instructor - Sarah Young

YoungSarah.jpgHi, I'm Sarah Young, and I'm grateful to work with big thinkers to increase their positive impact in the world. I consider myself part former corporate executive who reads Harvard Business Review and part barefoot nature lover. I bring all of these parts of myself to my work, and I fiercely but lovingly push my clients to do the same. I do this through highly experiential workshops, courses, and events; through high-impact coaching; and through writing, speaking, and online programs.

Prior to launching Zing Collaborative, I spent 8 years in the corporate world leading people, projects, and teams (more info on all of that below). It was during this time that I became obsessed with the possibilities we create when we fully claim all the different parts of ourselves - at work, at home, and out in the world. I blend corporate experience, research, mindfulness, leadership, coaching, and experiential learning with the goal of empowering organizations, teams, and individuals to get great results in a way that feels inspired and alive. My clients range from top universities to high-tech startups to construction crews to financial institutions to healthcare organizations. Regardless of the industry, they share one thing in common: they are serious about increasing their positive impact and tapping into their full humanity to do so. When I'm not engaged in meaningful conversations with clients and members of my tribe, I'm usually out exploring and adventuring, hanging out in nature, or hanging out with my favorite two-legged and four-legged companions.
