Make Your Next Meeting Matter!
These are extraordinary times. A worldwide great recession combined with a tidal wave of innovative and incredibly disruptive technology has created a global business climate of uncertainty, fear, and at times, business paralysis.
How is your leadership coping with these changes? And how does it affect your leaders’ and teams’ performance? Especially during times such as these, clear and meaningful business communication is critical to leadership. Do your leaders and team members communicate freely and effectively, or are they caught in workplace conflicts, holding back during meetings and not sharing vital information?
The Jorgensen Leadership Center through its director Ray Jorgensen, PhD, teaches you how to design and hold focused conversations and meetings, that will generate open dialogue, engage all participants, surface the collective wisdom from the group and guide teams through change.
Ray imparts a unique approach to leadership development and business communications through programs based on his four decades as a practicing leader in public and private environments.
These programs create powerful and transforming experiences for leadership.
Ray spent 30 years in America’s private and public schools as a teacher, coach, department head, collegiate faculty member, and school administrator. A transformational life experience set him on a path to create the Jorgensen Leadership Center.
Along the way to designing, implementing and directing JLC, Ray received a Bachelor of Science in mathematics from St. Francis College in Brooklyn, N.Y. and a Master of Science in math from Fordham University in the Bronx. After moving to Florida, he continued his studies at Nova University and the University of South Florida to receive post masters certifications in Administration, Supervision, and Leadership. He holds a Doctoral degree in Systems Thinking and Organizational Learning.
Today he provides leadership development consultative services to a variety of public and private organizations. Jorgensen Leadership Center has helped a multitude of clients including:
· Del Ray Beach Medical Center Bureau of Navy Medicine

Dr. Jorgensen is author of “Oracle of the Obvious: Secrets of Common Sense Leadership” and two monographs Thinking Systems Thinking and Meetings that Matter.
So, what is JLC about and how does it help my leadership team?
In a nutshell, Dr. Jorgensen uses three leadership capabilities to initiate and steward change within the leadership of an organization: conversational, aspirational and systems leadership. These leadership capabilities are designed to guide participants through a process that engages and informs them about communicating candidly and clearly to align the organization or team’s efforts to accomplish its’ dreams, draw out and use the best thinking of a team when and where needed, resolve workplace conflicts and other situations that hamper effectiveness.
Getting started with JLC & transforming your team
Jorgensen Leadership Center has many offerings to help you transform your leadership teams. We suggest you get started with a keynote address by Dr. Jorgensen, which will enable you to see his powerful methodology at work and determine if JLC’s system inspires and educates your team. Keynotes are 90 minutes in duration.
Secondly, JLC offers full-day Sessions that enables participants to dig deeply into their organization’s problems, realize the causation, and work with Dr. Jorgensen on opening up communication channels to create solutions. These are intense, daily sessions designed for a minimum of 25 participants.
