Always Wear Your Head
Keynote Address

In this multimedia keynote presentation, Tyson draws on his years as the Oregon Duck–a beloved and award-winning NCAA mascot–to illuminate the life-altering power of being a part of something much larger than yourself. Members of organizations both large and small, whether college sports fans or not, will enjoy this presentation's blend of humor and insight, and will come away newly energized about working to achieve shared goals.

Step Up to Leadership
Modular Workshop Series
1 day - 4 days

The presence of phenomenal leaders is what separates truly successful organizations from those merely getting the job done. This four-part program uses breakout sessions, full group presentations, and experiential learning to help group members grow from membership to leadership. In half- or full-day workshops tailored to your organization's specific needs, Tyson provides the tools, vocabulary, and inspiration needed to build and maintain great leadership.

DiversityBuilding Cultural Competency
Diversity Workshop
Full or half day

We are all members of a society where effective communication across borders–whether real or metaphorical–is increasingly necessary. Tyson uses his own experiences living and working on four continents to help the members of your organization realize their own cultural assumptions, and to build strategies for communication that neutralize those barriers.

Building Your Team Through Fun and Education
Teambuilding Workshop
Full or half day

This fun, high-energy workshop uses modeling, group activities, games, and experiential learning to provide the skills and language for effective communication and positive dispute resolution. Tyson's simple yet effective techniques for giving and receiving feedback, expressing gratitude, and using positive language will eliminate the need for leaders to micromanage disputes while empowering each team member.

You're not Leading Robots
Leadership Workshop
1 - 3 Hours

Whether you're leading one person or a team of hundreds, there's one thing you can't escape: you're leading people. The human factor is at once our greatest strength and our greatest weakness; it's what brings us the creativity to solve problems, and it's the source of all the interpersonal drama that can slow progress to a halt. Learn how to bring your group together as a team by reaching different individuals on their terms, not yours.

Taking the Static Out of Your Feedback
Managers' Workshop
Full or half day

According to employees, 61% of managers give ineffective feedback. Don't be one of them. Tyson's techniques quickly give managers a new, more effective vocabulary for expressing both criticism and praise. The skills learned in this workshop, along with the new perspective it imparts, will empower leaders at every level of any organization to head more productive, effective, and happy teams.

We Can See Clearly Now
Mission Statement Writing Workshop
Full or half day

The success of an organization is highly dependent on the clarity with which each and every member can see (and agree on) that organization's goals. To achieve that shared horizon, Tyson mediates a group discussion in which all members are given space to voice their issues, disagreements, and visions for the future. The conversation results in both a concrete mission statement and a newly clarified sense of common purpose, two things which never fail to reap incredible rewards in the daily operations of any organization.
