Leadership Presence: The 5 Senses Model®

Smell, taste, sight, hearing, and touch are our five powerful senses, and they serve as the foundation to our ability to
have that “it factor” that we many times admire in great leaders.  

When observing those leaders, we can never quite put our finger on “it,” but “it” is there. In Doreen’s proprietary Leadership Presence: The 5 Senses Model®, we learn how to leverage each of our senses to gain the “it factor” to level-up on their leadership development journey.

Annual Performance Like a Triathlete™

“Ironman …it exists for those who deny the word can’t.”

Ironman Triathlon is a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike, and a 26.2-mile run. Whether training and competing in an Ironman, 70.3, Olympic, or Sprint Triathlon, the scalable preparation remains the same. Every year triathletes sit down with their coaches and plan for the season ahead. The athletes carefully choose their one or two “A” races and everything else builds around that.  “Everything else” includes training schedules, discipline, practice, nutrition strategies, “C” and “B” races, taper, and of course, the much needed off-season. Doreen, a 3-time Ironman and 11-year triathlon competitor, guides you through managing and achieving your annual performance goals just like a triathlete manages theirs.

In this unique and highly interactive program, you will learn how analogies to triathlon training will aid you in having your best year, year-after-year in your career.  Triathlon terms and skills such as transitions, taper, and pre-race routine are applied to your business world. In addition, traditional business terminology including focus, problem solving, planning, and execution, come alive in an entirely new light and energize your approach to managing your annual performance. 

You will “race” out of the session with a focused and prioritized year-ahead plan, preparation check-lists, contingency planning, and renewed excitement about your yearly goals and achievement of those goals.

Deliverables are highly customizable: 

  • Live workshop
  • Virtual programming
  • Teambuilding experiences on-site at or for select races
