    Sandra Abbey  will present:

    Courageous Leadership: Creating an Organizational Culture of Accountability and Trust

    This presentation explores the strategic relationship between courage in the workplace and creating an organizational culture of trust. Based on the research of Bill Treasurer (author of Courage Goes To Work), and others, Human Resources Professionals are in a unique position of influence to create a workplace culture that in which courageous leadership results in a culture of more accountability, innovation, and trust.

    Participants will learn three types of courage that can be put to use right away, and will recognize two types of actions by supervisors and managers that can either discourage or encourage employees to be more engaged, innovative, trusting, and accountable. (note: a half-day or full-day workshop on this topic is available in the event participants wish to bring more in-depth training on this topic to their own organizations).


    Sandra Abbey spent nearly 20 years leading human resources teams in a variety of industries including retail, healthcare, research and development, municipal government, and five years as Chief Strategy Officer for the Tucson Airport Authority prior to starting her own human resources and leadership development consulting practice. Sandra has a bachelor’s degree in English and communications, and a master’s degree in management. She is an adjunct professor teaching leadership, strategic management, and human capital management courses for the University of Phoenix’s southern Arizona campus (teaching in person, not online ).

    Her consulting firm, doing business as “Leader Discovery,” provides human resources project work for small to mid-sized organizations. Some recent projects include redesigning performance and talent management processes, strategic and workforce planning facilitation services, reorganization support, conducting employee engagement surveys, and many other general HR programs. With a passion for coaching and teaching, Sandra also provides a wide array of supervisor and manager training programs such as business communications; critical and strategic thinking; leading self, leading others and leading organizations; courageous leadership, and provides individual or small group coaching and mastermind sessions for small business leaders and human resources professionals.
