Corporate Conference Topics
A.R.E. Your Leaders Inspiring: Attracting, Retaining and Engaging Your Workforce
The business case for why leaders must inspire (not dictate) if organizations are to keep their cream-of-the-crop players is indisputable. Shocking demographics coupled with radically-altering workforce attitudes demand new leadership strategies to thrive during a tumultuous talent crisis standing at every industry’s doorstep.
Boost Your Influence-ability
Influence, persuasion and manipulation each have separate connotations – even though the terms are confusingly inter-changed. Learn what influencing really is so you can appropriately leverage the power of “packaging”. The outcome will be that your “messages” are readily received because they appeal to human emotions.
Br-easing Through Transitions
Founded upon William Bridges’ Transitions Model (the inner process all people go through to come to terms with changed situations), you will generate a customized roadmap to navigate the three phases of Endings, Neutral Zone and New Beginnings – leaving you strengthened in the face of ever-shifting external circumstances.
Communication in a Changing Environment
As understanding of productive (versus unproductive) techniques and Stephen Covey’s concept of the ‘circle of concern’ are created, you will learn to adopt an empowered stance even when met with challenging circumstances. Cooperation and involvement form the basis of effective communication.
Creativity in the Workplace
Creativity is distinguished from innovation as the Laws of Attraction & Intention are tapped to foster every team member in bringing forward win-win results that positively impact customers, employers and employees. Mental “blocks” are released to unlock creativity using core lateral thinking techniques.
Creating the Anti-Dilbert Workplace
Borrowing on (Scott Adam’s) cartoon adventures of Dilbert, Dogbert, Wally and company, leaders are encouraged to create business transformation as the untenable human costs of living in destructive organizations is clearly spelled out. The result is employee engagement that translates directly to the bottom-line.
Low morale and motivation are amongst the critical impacts of non-stop change. Given that change is a constant, it becomes imperative to develop solid coping strategies. As many tend to equate change with stress, “straight-thinking” techniques and other stress “busters” provide improved change leadership skills.
Fully Engaged: Getting the Most from Work & Life
The concepts of energy engineering, extreme self-care and creative visualization act as the “triangle” on which participants learn to keep themselves “juiced, jazzed and enthused” – at work and at home. A balanced gameplan for key sectors of life is developed: health, career, spirit, finances and relationships.
Juggling Priorities in a Busy Workplace
Participants are afforded an opportunity to examine current work habits to identify productive versus unproductive behaviors and attitudes within such realms as organizing and prioritizing. Typical time-wasting traps are identified as part of developing concrete action plans to address areas of opportunity.
