Speaking Topics

Create an environment of empathy and trust

Leaders Listen

Bring Joy to Life in DEI

Traditionally, many initiatives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion are deeply rooted in legal compliance. Addressing these initiatives powerfully keeps an organization moving forward.


Yet there is often a missing ingredient.

The key ingredient that ensures organizations commit to a culture that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion is JOY! Joy comes from harnessing the power of the human spirit when we commit to creating a culture of curiosity and connection between people. This is the ingredient that deepens the efficacy of systems and processes. Joy has the power to transform the inner world of the people those same systems are designed to impact.


Learn how to:


  • Identify and disrupt habits and patterns that prevent effective communication

  • Expand their network and collaborate as allies

  • Develop the confidence to work in cross-cultural teams

  • Learn to connect with anyone from anywhere with freedom and ease


Leaders Listen for Greatness:

Practical Empathy


Time is a limited resource and many leaders. While juggling multiple meetings and mountains of emails, they often find it challenging to remain connected to their team and customers.


While most of us communicate using a variety of methods, ordinarily, leaders invest the majority of the time honing their speaking skills in order to run a meeting, conduct client presentations, or lead team training sessions.


Extraordinary leadership performance is centered around the way leaders listen to their team members, bosses, and customers.


Learn how to:


  • Remain present and grounded in the face of stressful situations

  • Use key non-verbal and verbal techniques to support listening generously

  • Leverage empathy to better resolve conflict

  • Build influence and effectively connect with others


Optimize communication and collaboration


Power With vs. Power Over:

The Science of Influence & Collaboration


Getting others to buy into new ideas or breaking down silos can be daunting. Learn how to leverage brain science to build partnership and trust in order to build teams and communication systems that work.


When leaders are not mindful, their words and actions may trigger another's fight or flight instinct. While this survival instinct is valuable,  when triggered, it can result in breakdowns in communication and eventually, relationships.


Discover how you can inspire others to collaborate by becoming a more effective communicator. 


Learn how to:

  • Avoid triggering the fight or flight mechanism in others

  • Gain influence and collaborate more effectively

  • Address others' concerns and determine the best method to address the situation


Blueprint to Success:

Achievement with the End in Mind

Have the goals and milestones set at the off-site retreat lost their luster and now lie passively in a slide deck or a binder on the shelf?


What if every goal set and every move made was aligned with a clear and compelling vision of the future? How would that alter the choices made each day?

This session will bring them to life! Teams and individuals will be inspired and focused on organizational and personal visions, while effortlessly achieving important milestones.


Stephen Covey’s bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says: “Your most important work is always ahead of you, never behind you”.



Learn how to:

  • Create a working blueprint of leadership vision and goals

  • Identify potential obstacles to goals and include a plan to address them

  • Build partnerships to support and hold each other accountable

Creating and Achieving the Vision and Goals That Matter

Connect with others in meaningful ways

Creating Your Circle of Influencers


If you set goals, then expect to achieve them on your own, your success will likely be limited. Having the right people in your corner can make all the difference in your success.


Leaders also benefit by creating, relying on, and nurturing a circle of people who have key strengths, abilities, and connections that can guide, support and challenge you to achieve your goals and bring your vision to life.

Learn how to:

  • Identify four types of partnerships that are essential for your personal circle of influencers.

  • Evaluate, define and leverage your current partnerships.

  • Create a strategy to revitalize your circle.
