Leadership Workshops & Corporate Keynote Speaker

Offsite Leadership Workshops

"Dan's passion for building stronger teams shows in his energetic delivery and depth of knowledge. He has successfully boiled down years of experience and research into practical and absorbable tools that are great to have in everyone's toolkit.”

–Tara Boucher. Director, Human Resources. Crescent Point Energy Corp

Great leadership is the key to attracting, motivating and retaining the most talented people. This is why a good development program should be among your most important competitive advantages. I offer both offsite and in-house 1/2 day workshops covering all the most essential leadership topics.

I use the guided discovery method, including lecture, small group discussion and role plays, to ensure everyone enjoys their time and learns in the most effective way. Occasionally we have some fun with a brief movie clip to help underscore a good or poor leadership practice.

I lead each workshop personally, so participants will be learning with someone who has deep leadership experience (see bio.) Each workshop is the product of a life-long passion for building dedicated high performance teams. I teach the same highly practical skills that delivered results for me.

"Dan Gaynor has presented Leadership workshops for our management team the past two years. Our managers rated him as the best presenter we've had. We have not seen our team as engaged as they are during these workshops. We would recommend Dan as a leadership resource for any growing company!”

–Tamara Russell, Human Resources Manager, Scott Land & Lease
