LEADING WITH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

In school, we were put into teams, but we were never taught how to work within 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 and those of others, and learning to lead with emotional intelligence are skills that can be taught, and this keynote will start you off with the basics.

COMMUNICATION STYLES – CREATING CONNECTIONS

Treating others as you want to be treated isn’t necessarily the best practice when it comes to communication styles as it assumes everyone is just like you. Do you often wonder why you can say something to one person, and it is taken the way you meant it, but then when you say that same thing to another person, it is taken the wrong way?  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.

MOTIVATION MATTERS

What is the one most common thing holding most people back in this very moment? The Answer? Motivation.

BRINGING MINDFULNESS INTO THE WORKPLACE

In today’s work world, we are constantly bombarded with stress-inducing demands, incessant connectivity through our mobile devices, endless fluctuating priorities, and increased expectations. Mindfulness is centered around bringing awareness to the present moment, and it works as a strategy to reduce employee stress, improve focus and clarity of thinking, and enhance productivity in the workplace. It is very easy to get sidetracked by the relentless pressures bombarding us, and/or caught up in “workplace drama”, and become affected by those “toxic emotions”. Mindfulness is a way of reprogramming your mind to recharge and rethink in healthier, less stressful, ways. This keynote jump starts you on that journey.
