Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace

Learning to apply emotional intelligence in the workplace is critical to business success. In school, we were put into teams, but we were never taught how to work with those teams. Our instructors gave us stress, but they never taught us how to handle and manage our stress. You see, most of these life skills are not taught in school or the workplace, for that matter. In today’s day and age, soft skills are just as, if not more, important than hard skills. Being aware of your emotions are skills that can be taught, and this keynote will start you off with the basics.

Communicating with Impact

Communicating with impact is crucial whether you are a seasoned professional or just starting out your career. Being aware of your communication style and those around you is imperative to creating and building prosperous business relationships. In this keynote, discover what your communication style is, learn how to communicate with impact, and determine how to flex your style to communicate effectively with others.

Coaching in the Workplace

Coaching in the workplace is one of the many practices leaders need to learn to provide support to their teams. As a leader, growing new talent, continuing to develop others, and sparking a renewed sense of purpose in your seasoned professionals, is a great opportunity and responsibility. You need to do it well. This keynote will teach you the steps and skills needed to start to have meaningful coaching conversations in the workplace.

Creating a Culture of Engagement

Most employees are satisfied with their jobs, but are they engaged? All organizations want actively engaged employees because they are enthusiastic about their work, inspired and motivated by their leaders, empowered with autonomy to do the job their way, and confident they can achieve excellence.

In this keynote, you will discover some of the traits that leaders need to create a culture of engagement within their teams. You will walk away with skills to develop deep, meaningful relationships with your staff, so they are committed to doing their best work for the organization.

Influential Leadership

Influential leadership is learning how to leverage your sources of influence to seize opportunities and become an extraordinary leader. Research suggests when people align their strengths with their goals, they are much more likely to achieve them. And when people realize their goals, they tend to be happier and more fulfilled with the result. Do you know your leadership strengths? Do you know how to use these strengths to drive and influence your employees? Are you using them to your maximum advantage? This keynote will show you how. 

Building High Performing Teams

Building high performing teams is crucial given the large network of people you interact with through the course of your job.  Think about all the people that you come into contact with in your work life: colleagues, board members and other volunteers, donors, clients, the general public and so on. With this large network of people connected to your organization, learning how to work well together is vital. People in every workplace talk about building teams and working as a team, but few understand how to develop and lead an effective, productive team. This keynote shows you how.

Enhancing Your Emotional Resilience

Enhancing Your Emotional Resilience is essential, especially during difficult times. Are you struggling with anxiety and stress during these times of uncertainty? Learning how to cope with stress, become more emotionally resilient, adapt to these rapid changes, and have a more positive outlook on the future are all the by-products of enhancing your emotional intelligence, and this keynote will show you how.  

Using EI to Lead Multigenerational Workers

In most workplaces, we have four generations working side by side. And for some, you may even have five. These include the Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials or Generation Y, and Generation X. A stellar leader with high emotional intelligence (EI) is aware of these generational differences and recognizes that different styles are borne out of different perspectives, which leads to different motivations. This keynote will demonstrate the differences between each generation and teach you how to tap into your EQ competencies to level the playing field for a multigenerational workforce.

Staying Emotionally Connected Together Apart

As we come to grips that social distancing has become integral to our daily lives, we have all had to pivot our lifestyles, and most of us have had to learn to work remotely from our homes. Many of us feel disheartened and lonely without regular socializing and impromptu water cooler talk that we used to have at serendipitous moments when we were in the office. In this keynote, we will cover how to use emotional intelligence to stay emotionally connected, continuing to build meaningful connections, remain motivated and inspired, and collaborate and innovate with colleagues even though we are physically apart.
