Get Sparked: Igniting an Intentional New You
Have you ever come up with an uninspired list of resolutions or goals that you stray from within a few weeks? When it comes to behavior change and habit change, many of us are focusing on ineffective sources of motivation and we aren't asking the right questions. How might we change that, so we are more likely to become the people the type of people we want to be, so we can move forward with confidence, energy and compelling intention?
Powering Up with Purpose
Organizations and teams that are connected to a larger shared purpose outperform their competitors. That's why high-performing teams take the time to align themselves around a shared identity and shared sense of purpose. When we have clarity around who we are helping and why our work matters, we unlock the power of engagement, which helps all of us perform better.
Sometimes we can get so focused on doing the work that we lose sight of why the work we do matters and who it serves. In this session, we will come together to power up with purpose, connection, and appreciation.
This Is Us: Building Belonging in a Virtual World
Social connectedness is one of the biggest drivers of resilience, engagement, retention and overall wellbeing. As rates of loneliness rise, it's more important than ever before to focus on social connection and belonging at work.
A study conducted by Quantum Workplace found that one of the most important elements of enjoying our work is our relationships with our coworkers. Social connection is so powerful because when we feel connected and feel like we belong, we free up our mental capacity to innovate, empathize, be creative, and problem solve. We need more of all of that right now, especially as our teams are growing and many people are geographically dispersed and may not be able to meet each other in person.
Believe: Ted Lasso's Lessons on Leadership
In the midst of all of the stress, anxiety and uncertainty of the past two years, the story of a football coach from the Midwest who was sent to the UK to coach a European football club was a welcome distraction for many of us. It was also a reminder of the goodness and kindness in humanity.
Ted Lasso's lightheartedness, humility, vulnerability and kindness drew us in and gave us hope in a year when hope was hard to find. Ted lived out some compelling lessons on leadership that we can learn from as HR leaders. In this interactive and engaging keynote, we will explore three of Ted Lasso's lessons on leadership and explore how we can integrate those lessons learned into our everyday interactions at work.
The Soul Behind the Role: Igniting Intentional Leadership
"Command-and-control" is a leadership style of the past that attempts to influence employees by having power over them. The new wave of leadership is taking a different approach - "connect-and-care" - recognizing that employees want to feel seen, heard and valued in order to be fully engaged.
A recent study of over 50,000 managers found human skills to be a greater predictor of leadership effectiveness than technical skill or competence, though the best leaders have both. Two of the key elements of intentional leadership are curiosity and empathy. We hear a lot about both of those concepts, but how can we practically apply them? Learn how in this interactive and experiential session.
From "Zoomed Out" to Dialed In: Elevating Employee Engagement in a Digital World
Many organizations are struggling to figure out how to engage their employees as more and more of them are working remotely. Most virtual learning experiences leave us feeling distracted, disengaged, and bored. Is it over yet??
As we continue to navigate the future of work and the next normal, new challenges are emerging for employers as the remote workforce becomes less of an exception and more of the norm. How can we foster connection, engagement, productivity and collaboration when we're constantly in flux and feeling "zoomed" out?
Lead with Strengths: Bringing Out the Best in Yourself & Others
Many of us focus more on "fixing" our deficits than we do elevating our strengths. What if we could take a different approach to leadership, one that is rooted in what leads to a flourishing life, enhanced wellbeing and improved relationships at work and at home?
When we take a strengths-based approach to leading, we catalyze growth and connection, improve retention and engagement and reduce the likelihood of burnout. Prior to this session, attendees will complete an individual strengths-based assessment to identify their specific strengths.
Because Nice Matters: Cultivating Kind & Caring Cultures
"Command-and-control" is a leadership style of the past that attempts to influence employees by having power over them. The new wave of leadership is taking a different approach - "connect-and-care" - recognizing that employees need to feel seen, heard, supported, valued and appreciated by their manager to be engaged.
When asked why people leave their jobs, most managers cite "money" as the #1 reason. But when their people were asked why they left, the majority cited reasons other than money. From increased job satisfaction, performance, morale and happiness to reduced stress and improved immunity, the impact of appreciation, compassion and care on workplace culture and wellbeing is far-reaching.
C3: What Employees Really Want from Work
In the midst of The Great Resignation, employers are concerned more than ever about keeping their people, keeping them engaged and supporting their overall health and wellbeing.
When employees feel valued, inspired, and connected to their work and coworkers, they're more engaged, creative, innovative, effective, high performing and healthier. All of this creates a competitive advantage and positively impacts an organization's bottom line and their ability to recruit and retain talent.
