The Confidence Dilemma with Tero International

One of the many things we treasure about our relationship with Tero International is their research based work when it comes to achieving success in business or in your personal life. Today we'll introduce you to the topic of confidence. While most people know about the word there are two very different models of confidence and with those two models comes a whole range of leadership issues. Meet founder, president and CEO of Tero International Ro Crosbie and be prepared to...learn. 

A Legacy of Service - Meet Charles Clayton

Every so often we find a story about a person who has built their life around a mission of service to others. Sometimes, as in this case, these people hope to bring that legacy of service to the people living and working in their community through the legislative branch. Meet Charles Clayton who not only has an amazing story but has also, for years, been that servant to others.  Charles is running for the Iowa House in District 9 which is Webster County and the Fort Dodge area. We were impressed and think you will be as well. Meet Charles Clayton. 

Personality, Leadership & Virtual Meetings with Tero International

Your personality and your leadership style during COVID19 and, really anytime. Today a returning guest is Liz Cooney one of the trainers from Tero International. We're going to talk about how personality impacts leaders and why it's not only important to know more about your personality but also the members of your team. Here Liz will talk about The Myers & Briggs Foundation and how knowing your personality preference, and those that you lead, will help smooth out the road-bumps of leadership.  Let's go!  

Pivoting to a Virtual World to Meet Demand

Back in March the leadership team at Tero International assessed what COVID19 could do to their business if the company failed to adjust and pivot from in person events to holding classes using technology. Here Deborah Rinner, the Chief Learning Officer at Tero International, talks about that transition, why they had to move quickly and, more importantly, what all of this has taught the teachers.
