The Power of Connection: Re-imagining Workplace Relationships
How much trust do you have in your team? What do they think of you? If you don’t have trust, you don’t have a team, and the research backs that up. Teams that trust each other perform better and accomplish more.
The pandemic has added even more tension, with nearly 70% of workers saying it’s the most stressful time they’ve experienced in their career. Some of that stress comes from virtual and hybrid work models, which make it more difficult to have trust and connection in the workplace.
Managers in the current era also wear multiple hats. They may be delegators, coaches, therapists, and more. Now is the perfect time to reimagine workplace relationships, to foster strong trust and connection in an ever-changing world.
This keynote is an entertaining and active way to engage your leadership team, and help them set the tone for everyone. The 4 keys explored are:
- Trust building
- Open communication
- Expectation setting
The Power of You: kicking life's ass
Are you ready to see what you and your team can do? Unleashing the Power of You is the way to rise up to challenges in life, and exceed your own expectations. It’s time to:
- Stop trying to “think outside the box.” There isn’t any box at all.
- Believe in each and every day, so you can make it great.
- Maximize every opportunity, and stop minimizing your options.
During this motivational keynote, attendees will learn:
- The right way to move on from past failures, so they can thrive in the future.
- The best ways to use positive self-talk to raise competence and confidence to new levels.
- The easiest ways to set and enforce healthy boundaries with friends and family members.
If you are a leader, part of a team, or an individual contributor—or if you just want to do more with your life—this is an optimal keynote to help you reach your best future.
relational leadership in challenging times
How does the culture of your organization feel about challenges? Does it respond with a “let’s fix it,” or “what will this teach us?” attitude, or does it see a challenge as one more annoyance to work through?
Effective leaders know that relationships are vital, and the quality of those relationships affects how challenges are handled. These leaders help their organizations thrive, especially in stressful or uncertain moments.
Moving through difficult times means leaders need to have trusted relationships with the people they lead. Healthy coping mechanisms, a willingness to truly listen, and a desire to be your best self all matter, and relational leadership can bring out the best in everyone.
In this keynote, attendees will learn:
- How to focus on inclusion that feels genuine and receptive.
- How to develop purposefulness in the organization through encouragement and a shared goal.
- How to empower themselves and others to come together for the highest good.
All keynotes can be delivered as workshops
