  • Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time

    How many of the following statements apply to your life?

    1. I often feel overwhelmed
    2. I usually feel that I don’t have enough time in the day
    3. I struggle with being present, or in the moment
    4. I struggle to prioritize self-care (e.g., exercise, eating well, etc.)
    5. I’m tired of being tired
    6. I often struggle with being fresh and creative

    You’re not alone. Such is the state of the modern world. Yet human energy is a critical resource. The strategies used to improve athletic performance can also be applied to managing energy in our personal lives. Learn how to train like an athlete to manage your energy physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

    In this session, you will learn:

    •Tips to manage physical energy: nutrition, exercise, sleep
    •Tips to manage emotional energy: focus
    •Tips to manage mental energy: gratitude and happiness
    •Tips to manage spiritual energy: core values
  • Increase Your Emotional Intelligence

    What is Emotional Intelligence (EI)? EI is a measure of your ability to monitor, identify, understand and use emotional information, whether it comes from you or from somebody else. Those with a higher EI are able to manage feelings like anger, happiness, insecurity, or fear in order to “respond” to situations rather than “react” to situations. Studies show that up to 80% of the average person’s personal and career success can be attributed to their level of EI.

    In this session, you will learn:

    •The four domains of EI
    •The brain science behind EI
    •Practical tips to strengthen your EI
  • Attract, Develop and Retain Female Talent

    One of the major workforce trends significantly impacting organizations today is the fact that women are leaving the workforce in droves. Studies show that more than half of women who start out in Fortune 500s have left before they reach the executive level. Where do they go and why does it matter?

    Women who leave your organization either join your competitors or become your competitors by launching their own businesses. In fact, as of 2010, there were more than 8 million woman-owned businesses in the U.S. and their numbers are growing 50% faster than start-ups headed by men.

    One reason this matters to your organization is purely economical. Two recent, high profile studies have found that having even one woman on a company’s board correlates with significantly better performance.

    Female leadership is a must-have for companies to survive and thrive. And yet very few companies have been able to move that bar. You need an action plan to bring women into the top ranks of your company and keep them there.

    Leaders will benefit from this presentation by learning:

    •The business case for women in the workforce.
    •What women bring to the workplace: creativity, better decision making, more social responsibility,
    more business success.
    •Factors that signal second-generation bias at the company level and six ways to fight it.
    •An action plan for developing and retaining women leaders.
  • Preparing Leaders for the Workforce of the Future

    There are big changes coming to the American workforce. In order to survive and thrive in the very different workplace of tomorrow, organizations need to know, plan and stay in front of these changes.

    This presentation will help you lead through these changes, including the five biggest workforce trends:

    •Longevity leading to more flexible and fluid careers – for all generations
    •Women leaving the corporate world and starting their own businesses
    •The old diversity minority is the new majority
    •Rising freelancer demand, with predictions that 50 percent of the workforce will be contingent workers by 2027
    •Greater emphasis on career reinvention through retraining and lifelong learning

    Your job is to help get ready for these changes, and my job is to help you do that with my blogs and keynote. Through me, you will be able to answer:

    •How will I retain my organizational knowledge before the demographic tsunami hits?
    •How will I win the war for top talent?
    •How will I help grow an organization with the newest generation of leaders?
  • Future Focused Leaders Create Cultures of Purpose

    “Future Focused Leaders Create Cultures of Purpose” examines the rampant absence of purpose people feel in today’s workplace and the extreme lack of engagement that results. This lack of engagement is not only bad for organizations; it’s bad for people, their families, and their communities, too. I explain how it’s imperative for leaders to create purpose in their organizations. The first step in doing so is identifying organizational values. I provide a roadmap for identifying those values and implementing them. In this talk, leaders will learn:

    •How to define purpose.
    •How to use purpose to boost employee engagement
    •What is needed to create a purpose-driven DNA
    •How your own leadership values will add depth to work
  • Unconscious Bias and You

    Everyone in the world has bias, a tendency to believe that some people and ideas are better than others, which usually results in treating some people unfairly. Often it is unconscious bias, social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness, that is the most problematic. It’s imperative that individuals and organizations become aware of the common types of bias found at work and learn how to combat them. Why? To ensure all members of the organization are given an opportunity to succeed, thus increasing the success of the organization as a whole.

    In this session, you will learn:

    •The brain science of bias
    •Four types of bias at work
    •Tools and tips to combat bias at the workplace
