Change is happening at lightning speed. It seems more pervasive and the variables are uncertain. Are you—and your staff—change-ready or change-resistant? Don’t hunker down in change-resistance when it could affect your reputation, performance and the quality of service you provide. Confront your own biases on change. Learn pro-active methods to support others in shifting change-resistance to change-readiness. And learn personal strategies for stayin’ alive through change.

Learning Outcomes:

  • 3. Identify techniques that will help you focus on benefits, skills, attitude and shift into change-readiness.

Millennials

Title:
From Confusion to Clarity

Brief Description:
Millennials…they’re numerous, they’re the future, and they know it. Their preferences, values and needs matter and will increasingly impact talent decisions and business outcomes.  Can the millennial “work/life perspective” and an organization’s “business balance” be compatible?  This session will demystify the confusion by helping you come to grips with generational differences on work/life expectations.  And it will bring clarity by helping you create a formulated plan to address the changes needed for the continued success of your organization.

Influence is your ability to positively affect the thoughts and actions of other people. It’s the principle that sustains relationships, elevates productivity and stabilizes trust. It requires some risk! Exercise your “risk-taking” muscles. Learn common sense strategies to maximize your influence. Think of the great results you will get. RISK IT!

Wellness demands high performance…in full swing! But do you sometimes feel like you’ve fallen off the swing? Are there times when you are not well, not up to par, and don’t look or feel good? What’s happened? These are NOT inevitable symptoms of aging but the results of diet, lifestyle and stress. Isn’t it time to get up, get out and get on with being healthy and well?

Taking the Lead by Taking Risks

Did you grow up hearing and believing: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen? Don’t rock the boat? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? Those risk-avoidance mindsets might influence the way you engage in leadership. Don’t gamble on your present or future results! Exercise your “risk-taking” muscles and flip those clichés. Learn practical strategies for purposeful risk-taking to develop the head, heart and guts of leadership. RISK IT!
