Cultivating Radical Resiliency: Leadership Skills for Complex Times

Radically turbulent times demand professional and personal responses that transcend our regular work and life patterns. It’s not about happy faces on mirrors and mantras on coffee mugs. It’s not about hanging on while holding back. It’s about times when you feel someone ate your cheese, drained the swamp, and went from great to less-than-good.

How can professionals cope with change while staying focused on their jobs and organization goals?  The answer is resiliency – the ability to find the inner strength to grow through a setback, challenge, or opportunity.  Radical resilience requires the courage to challenge, commit, and contribute in ways that positively impact both today as well as many tomorrows.

Audience takeaways:

  • Discover how to grow the skills of adaptability, agility, laugh-ability, and alignment for
    producing results that put YOU in control of your ship.
  • Learn a four-part model for methodically tackling the tough issues you currently face.
  • Explore what great leaders do to inspire teams to stay in the game and thrive. (And it has
    NOTHING to do with money!) Get them energized, actualized, authorized, and gratified.
  • Develop a personal legacy leadership goal that defies downturns and disappointments.
Keynote by speaker Eileen McDargh

Resilient Relationships: Plain Talk for Complex Times

At the end of the day, our very success hinges on relationships. These relationships grow or die based on a skill too often we forget: CONVERSATION. How meaningful are yours? The proliferation of cell phones and the glut of chat rooms show us what society yearns
for: meaningful human connection, community, and the value of relationships.

The pace of change, the lure of dazzling technology, and the speed of life have created the opposite. The most human of all connections is conversation – an internal and external event that has become blurred. We’ve forgotten how to talk to each other – if in fact some of us ever knew. In many instances, we have never been taught how to listen.

At the deepest level, we’ve probably never stopped long enough to even listen to ourselves.

Audience takeaways:

  •  This presentation explores a model for understanding and growing the conversations we have with ourselves and with each other so that everyone becomes fully engaged in the work we are tasked to do.
  • Audience members also celebrate the power of humor to connect. Be prepared to think, laugh, and learn.

Creating a Resilient Workforce: The Care and Feeding of Remote Teams

Alone again—and not so naturally.  With employees scattered in various locations—even within the same city— a leader’s job becomes a blend of psychologist and coach, teacher, and student.

  • Can also offer a forum for leaders to discuss critical issues and share best practices.
