Broker Leadership Series - Sponsored by Wawanesa

February 21, 2023, 10:30 - 11:30 AM

We are excited to announce that our BRAND NEW Broker Leadership Series is SOLD OUT!


It takes more that just insurance knowledge to lead a team.  That's why IBANS is pleased to introduce a new and exclusive leadership program for member brokers sponsored by Wawanesa.

Our facilitator, Jess Chapman, ethree Consulting, will guide participants through key components that will help build their confidence and highlight the importance of time management and prioritizing workloads. Additional content will focus on identifying stress points and explore the reaction cycle to avoid pitfalls that sabotage a productive work environment. One of the most important take-aways will be managing feedback and holding others accountable utilizing the NICER model. 

This three part hybrid series will begin in February and wrap up in April 2023 with one session being conducted each month. The first two sessions will be offered virtually and the last will be held in person in Halifax.


These sessions will not be sold individually as each component is meant to allow for participants to master vital leadership skills and propel them to the next level of exhibiting positive, purpose driven leadership.



Managing Time and Priorities  - February 21, 2023 10:30am-11:30am virtual via Zoom

Today’s world is busy! The amount of information we are expected to process and manage is increasing each year, so our ability to cut through information, prioritize importance and pick our spots is key to being successful in this fast- paced world. This session looks at strategies for prioritizing workload and managing stakeholders for the best outcome.We look at prioritizing urgent and important tasks, the most common time wasters and how to avoid them, and how to create efficiency habits for yourself so that you make the most of your energy and time.



Managing Energy and Stress - March 28, 2023 10:30am-11:30am virtual via Zoom

As leaders we are role models for our organization. As such, our ability to manage stress effectively, maintain our calm in all manner of situations, and sustain our energy and motivation is key. In this interactive one-hour webinar we will look at how to manage both our energy and stress, exploring the reaction cycle that happens in our brains, and ways we can intervene for ourselves and others so that we can stay consistently calm and productive.



Managing Feedback and Accountability - April 25, 2023 Half day in Halifax - 3 hours in person 

Effective leadership means holding other people accountable for their delivery and behaviour, but these types of conversations can feel challenging. In this interactive half-day session, we will look at how to give feedback and hold people accountable effectively, minimizing the likelihood of misunderstandings and negative reactions. We will walk through the NICER model for structuring feedback and accountability conversations and explore how to position feedback so that it is most readily accepted by those we are connecting with.
