We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence.

Unapologetically SHE

 

You have probably heard the quote “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.”  Successful women understand the truth in this phrase, fully. We are who we are because of those brave and resilient women who came before us and dared to rock the boat. In this inspiring and empowering keynote, Jennifer will share the secrets to tapping into that reservoir of strength and drive.  She will take you to the height of inspiration while also encouraging you to settle into the vibration of your purpose.

 

While women worldwide are closing the gap in critical areas such as health and education, significant gender inequality persists in the workforce and in politics. Given current rates of change, reports in 2018 estimate it will be another 217 years before we achieve gender parity. This is absolutely astonishing! If you are managing a team, climbing the corporate ladder, running your own business, finishing your education, stepping up to lead in your community, or raising your family, this keynote is for you.  It will help you tap into that fire within, so that you can leave a lasting and meaningful mark in the workplace, marketplace, and community.  When women are better represented in leadership roles, more women are hired across the board.

 

 

As a result of the keynote presentation you will be able to:

 

  • Understand the power of SHE
  • Find your Bravery when your confidence has been shaken, by trusting your purpose
  • Tap into the resources that fuel your Resilience—we may not be 100% all the time, but the fuel is always available
  • Know that Optimism will carry you through adversities and sometimes we just need to shift our perspective
  • Use your Generosity to pave the way for the girls who follow— they need you, as much as you needed your tribe

Rolling Out The Red Carpet Service To Your Customers:

Tricks Of The Trade, Straight From A Celebrity Wrangler

 

Welcome to The Age Of The Customer… and, The Age Of The Celebrity!  As silly as it may sound, today’s customers want to be treated like stars.  They want to be treated as if they are “someone”—the phrase “Do you know who I am?” comes to mind.  Today’s customers want to be given more than the average person, and they expect you to go waaaay above and beyond “just for them”. Does any of this sound familiar?  It should, because customers today are demanding more than they ever have before. Now, more than ever, we need to be OBSESSED with our “special guests”.

Over the last decade, I have been given the unique opportunity as a Television Host to interview celebrities, which is not as easy as you may think.  They can be grouchy, arrogant, bored, fussy, confused, and controlling… not all that different than some of our customers!  During this fun and fast-paced keynote, I will give the tips and tricks that I learned, to make even the grumpiest customer feel like the most important person in the world.  Get ready, because I’m about to give you the dish on some of your favorites!

 

As a result of this keynote you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of Service in The Age Of The Customer AND Celebrity
  • Identify your customer’s expectations in their “celebrity rider”
  • Pin-point your customer’s Pain Points and how to talk them off the ledge
  • Side-step the sure-fire mistakes and keep your valuable name out of the press
  • See the value of utilizing Behavioral Psychology to control your starlets and turn them into customers for life

Bridging The Gap;

How To Thrive In A Multigenerational Environment

 

The world has gotten smaller, and a homogenous workplace is a thing of the past. Instead, modern leaders have to deal with a variety of workers across generational and cultural lines, each with their own values, work ethic, and desires. 

It can be a tough job to keep everyone happy and productive. Styles and approaches that work well with some people may be completely ineffective with others. But you can’t change your entire leadership style every time you come into contact with someone from a different generation or cultural background. You need a solid approach that will work for everyone. 

 

As a result of this keynote presentation you will be able to:

  • Use the workshop information, strategies, and tools to lead with cultural and generational diversity awareness. 
  • Help employees see the value of a diverse work force. 
  • Determine how cultural differences impact work environments. 
  • Identify characteristics and differing values attributed to each generation. 
  • Recognize the impact of language on intercultural and intergenerational communication.
  • Identify potential conflict arising from cultural and generational differences. 
  • Adapt your leadership style to effectively manage a diverse team. 

 

It’s a hypersensitive world out there. The smallest offhand comment, a misinterpreted joke, that’s all it takes to offend someone, unknowingly. In today’s modern workplace, that’s not a mistake you can afford to make and it’s our job to understand how we can be more sensitive and emotionally intelligent with those we work with.

This keynote will give you the skills you need to find common ground and build strong relationships with all of your employees regardless of generational or cultural differences.

The Humanification Of Change:

The Other Side of Creative Disruption and Destruction

 

Large scale creative disruption and destruction demands more than the best strategic and tactical plans. Truly successful change requires an intimate understanding of the human side, as well — the company’s culture, values, people, and behaviors that must be changed, in order to deliver the desired results. Plans, themselves, do not capture value. Value is realized only through the sustained, collective actions of your employees, who are responsible for designing, executing, and living the change. In this powerful and impactful keynote, Jennifer will remind you that putting your focus on the human element of change is imperative, if you want your efforts during change to have buy-in AND staying power.

 

As a result of the keynote presentation you will be able to:

 

  • Recognize the need for Humanification
  • Understand the emotional response to change
  • Diagnose the sources of resistance
  • Tap into Emotional Intelligence to communicate more effectively
  • Maximize the Human Element to maximize results

 

Putting your focus on the human element of change is imperative. The sooner we can acknowledge the root cause of the resistance, empathize with the fear, and create a balanced and supportive plan, the more successful our transformation process will be.  When the people, culture, and values are the first priorities in a change process, it is easier for the staff to see why the structural, procedural, and organizational changes are necessary.

Mastering The Rules Of Engagement

 

Success in business requires a healthy amount of change and evolution, but the only way to do this successfully is to have an engaged and stimulated workforce. The key to getting employees engaged requires leadership to understand their motivators; it comes down to the leader’s genuine interest in their working partners.  Do you know what kick starts your employees? Do you know WHY they work? Do you know what their endgame looks like? Do you know what they value most?  If you don’t know these things, it’s time to work on the rules of engagement.  In this energetic keynote, Jennifer will give you the strategies and tricks to re-engage your team… here’s your first tip: It starts with your own engagement, leader!

 

       As a result of the keynote presentation you will be able to:

 

  • Understand the necessity for higher levels of engagement
  • Recognize some of your own gaps in engagement
  • Utilizing Basic Psychological Needs to tap into personal motivators
  • Implement The Rules of Engagement to maximize your human resource

 

As leaders, when we get engaged in the discovery process of uncovering our employee’s psychological needs and values, and then          make motivation and engagement a cornerstone in our leadership process, everyone wins.

Holistic Leadership: Building Your Professional Intelligence By Enhancing Your CQ, SQ, and EQ

 

The face of the workplace is changing… from the way we work, to where we work, and even who we are working with.  The authoritarian, dominant leadership style of the past, isn’t working with our new generation workers. What is needed, today, is far different than what has worked, in the past. What is needed is a high degree of Professional Intelligence.

 

Leaders with a high degree of Professional Intelligence are self-aware and understand their values and what drives them. These are leaders who know there must be harmony between both the mind and body, as well as in relationships, culture, community, and spiritual balance. We call these individuals Holistic Leaders because they have developed their Professional Intelligence by doing the work on their Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and Spiritual Intelligence (SQ).

 

In this thought provoking and fast-paced keynote, you will learn to develop another side of your leadership muscle.  As our work flows change, the expectations of our next generation workers change… and, great leaders know that we must be willing to change, as well.

 

 

As a result of the keynote presentation you will be able to:

 

  • Recognize the changing face of the workforce and the need to evolve your skills
  • Understand the value of Professional Intelligence
  • Develop your Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
  • Expand your Spiritual Intelligence (SQ)
  • Progress your Cultural Intelligence (CQ)
  • Embrace Holistic Leadership

Speak Up!

Harness Your Personal Power By Strengthening Your Communication Skills

 

You’ve heard it time and again. Communication skills are what make and break careers. One communication blunder and your reputation is in the trash. And let’s face it, people simply don’t forgive and forget when we say the wrong thing.

Think about it: Have you ever stood by silently while someone else got credit for your great idea? Have you ever stuck your foot in your mouth and beaten yourself up for days over it? Have you ever felt stressed when talking to upper management? People just like you face situations just like this (and even more) every day. It’s up to you to make the most out of these opportunities. And having the confidence to know what to say is your key to long- term career success.

 

As a result of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Persuade others to your way of thinking and gain their cooperation.
  • Communicate assertively to accomplish work objectives and interact with others.
  • Guidelines for giving and receiving feedback 

  • How to announce your ideas confidently 
and effectively
  • The secret to asking for what you want and 
getting it!
