Keynotes and Break-Out Presentations

The thrill of a new promotion into a leadership position can be quickly eclipsed by feelings of disillusionment and a sense of failure if you are not prepared and are not strategic in your transition. Too many new leaders hit the ground running only to realize that, although they possess the requisite technical skills to get the job done, their ability to lead people is inadequate.

In this workshop we will cover:

  • Strategies to thrive in the first 90 days
  • Identify and understand the top company priorities
  • Build trust and respect with your team
  • Set boundaries, especially with former colleagues and friends
  • Outline expectations
  • Manage imposter syndrome
  • Build a strong support system
  • Get comfortable with conflict

Power, Presence and Impact for Women

Women have elevated their game by demanding equal pay for equal work, blasting pathways to top-level positions and rejecting the notion that they need to be superwomen. Are you poised to take your place among this group of women determined to claim their voice and their power and lead from a place of authentic power? Power, Presence and Impact is for the woman who is ready to make the commitment to create the habits that will position her as a leader in her field.

This workshop will cover how to:

  • Lean in on self-validation instead of constantly looking outside to be valued
  • Destroy self-limiting thought patterns that cripple your growth and desire to be exceptional
  • Be comfortable with possessing power
  • Build a circle of influence with like-minded people
  • Align your professional and personal life
  • Increase your visibility with a strategic approach
  • Recognize and avoid career pitfalls

Program Format: 90 minutes to 1/2-day workshop. Tailored to meet the needs of each client

Building Strategic Alliances Within Your Organization

Ever wondered how some employees know how to get things done and get promoted quickly and consistently?  Have you noticed that the most qualified, hardest-working employee does not always get rewarded?  The secret to their success is the depth of their network. It’s not enough to come to work and do an exceptional job. Your success is also affected by the quality of the relationships you forge within the company.  To some people, networking internally appears to be unnecessary, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Learning Outcomes

  • Feel more at ease with the networking process
  • Use your leverage to help others succeed
  • Prepare and position yourself for networking opportunities
  • Raise your visibility and showcase your expertise

Maximizing the Talents of a Multigenerational Workforce

Each generation brings its own unique characteristics, competencies, and challenges to an organization, making successful leadership a complex endeavor. Understanding each group is the first step to creating an environment where employees of all ages can thrive and feel valued, putting your company on track to be an effective, profitable organization.

In this workshop, you’ll understand how to:

  • Identify core values and talents of Generation Z, Generation Y/Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers, and the Silent Generation
  • Understand what each group needs to thrive in the workplace
  • Avoid three common mistakes when managing across age groups
  • Anticipate and mitigate cross-generational conflict


Leading with Civility in High Pressure Environments

Studies show that incivility has increased and is eroding the health, morale and creativity of teams. Every employee wants to be treated with kindness and respect and feel valued for their contributions. What can you do as a leader to ensure that your team feels valued and respected? How do you lead with civility, especially in high-pressure, deadline-driven cultures?  How do you inspire your people to be their best while setting clear expectations and holding everyone accountable?

This program will cover how to:

  • Set clear expectations
  • Define what civility looks like for your team
  • Measure and reinforce civility best practices
  • Identify common behaviors that undermine civility
  • Address incidents of workplace incivility
  • Model the positive behaviors that promote trust, respect and dignity in the workplace
Karen came and spoke to our Business Resource Group. She energized the room and kept everyone engaged. Her presentation “Disrupting Leadership: The Impact of Millennials”, got our members thinking differently. I like how she asked for everyone to make an action plan. Days after the presentation, people in the office were still talking about how great Karen was and how she got them thinking more about how to make an impact.
Team members found the session to be inspirational, with practical advice they could put to work immediately to help them reach their potential.
