Banishing Balance: A New Paradigm for Personal and Professional Success
First there was “balance”, then there was “integration”, and then we all became aware that whatever word you want to give it, it doesn’t really exist. That it’s an impossible standard that only leads to more disappointment. So how do we solve the age-old challenge of feeling satisfied with our commitment dedicated to both our personal and our professional lives? The answer does not lie with productivity tools and strategies. In this workshop we’ll unlearn everything we know about the mythical idea of “balance” and shift our thinking and behavior towards creating meaning and fulfillment.
Building Your Brand Foundation
These days, everything and everyone has a "brand". Using the idea of a brand as wholistic concept is useful for individual leadership development as well as organizational development. What you see on the outside as the brand expression is only part of the story. What's on the inside is what counts. An intentional brand will provide a road map for an individual or an organization and will guide decision making, strategy and how you behave during times of uncertainty, change or crisis. In this workshop we build or refine your personal or company brand from the bottom up with a focus on developing your purpose, mission, values and high level brand expression.
Communication for Leaders
Communication is one of the most emphasized and underdeveloped leadership skills. Often what we think we know about communication has to be un-learned in order to communicate more effectively as a leader. In this workshop we will discuss the most important goal of any communication, elements of effective leadership communication and skills to build your communication confidence.
Every organization has a customer that they serve. A customer is someone who exchanges compensation for goods or services. It could also be a member or someone that receives benefits from a non-profit. The best organizations design products and services around the needs of their target customer. Great customer experiences begin with leaders who have this understanding and mindset and who clearly define and communicate the purpose of their organization. In this workshop we will define the drivers of customer experience and practical frameworks and systems to optimize those drivers.
As leaders, our employees are the direct customer that we serve. We often fall into the trap of believing that if we pay our employees well and offer them some cool perks, everything will work out well. Employee experience is influenced, however, by many more factors. In this workshop we will discuss what factors these are and strategies to improve your organization's employee experience . We will also link the impact of employee experience on customer experience outcomes.
Many of us carry paradigms for leadership that don't fit the requirements of today's world. Society frequently values people with high levels of expertise while the world changes so rapidly that subject knowledge expertise often doesn't equip us with what we need to operate a thriving organization or company. We've been taught that leadership is about what we do and how we act outwardly, while that is only part of the equation. In this workshop we start with building an understanding around self-leadership competencies. We will build on self-leadership competencies and develop a framework of everyday outward facing leadership competencies for practical everyday application. Together, these two sets of competencies will empower participants to confidently address every leadership challenge that comes across their path.
Rarely do you find a leader who is not driven to improve their performance, yet goals continually seem out of reach. Our biggest impediment to our performance goals is often ourselves. Our beliefs, assumptions and mindset hold us back from what we really want. In this workshop we will identify what we are striving to achieve and what could be stopping us. We will peal back the layers to understand our values, strengths and weaknesses and motivations. With a clearer awareness of ourselves we can design strategies and habits that will put us on the path to peak performance.
In a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world, what sets the “thrivers” apart from the “survivors”? Many believe it’s a sense of purpose. Clarity of purpose has become an essential tool in every leader’s toolbox for both personal and professional success. In this program, we will connect with our-selves and others through a process of cultivating or evolving our individual definitions of purpose. Participants will leave the with a better understanding of what purpose is, the benefits, and a pathway to defining their own, as well as a process to bring more purpose driven strategies into the workplace.
