LEADERSHIP - TAKING THE WHEEL IN COMPLEX TIMES

CONNECT WITH BRAND TO DIRECT THROUGH MARKETING: An Unfussy Solution
Whether as a parent, a great business leader, or a brand, it's critical to forge an emotional bond with someone before you can effectively convince or inspire them to take some sort of positive, meaningful action. Mattering matters. Through instruction, example, and practice, learn why and how to:
- Be yourself — even if that means being yourself, and become a brand catalyst and champion versus simply an enabler
- Build the strong brand foundations, platforms and concepts you need to create competitive advantage and break the noise barrier
- Expose the beating heart of your brand for deeper, more endearing emotional impact, and narrative and visual cohesion sure to move your organization beyond conformity and toward ambition with unity and purpose
- Strategically weld your brand to vision, mission and value propositions that deliver more upon consumer needs than wants... eliminating the risk of competing solely on price, location, features, or perceived quality of goods and services alone
Marketing communications is a tool. It can be dull and cumbersome, or it can be powered by solid brand muscle to generate breakthroughs in a noisy marketplace and achieve personal and organization vision more quickly and aggressively. No fuss and no muss; this lighthearted presentation is all business: driven by the simple and tidy notion that you must first Connect with Brand in order to Direct through Marketing…The Unfussy way.

ENHANCING BUSINESS RESULTS THROUGH RUTHLESS PRIORITIZATION
Did you feel that you did not have enough time to do everything for your business during the pandemic? Or not having enough support to do everything? Or did not know what to expect given the lingering uncertainty? If your answer is “yes,” then you are not alone. While the pandemic has consumed so much of leaders’ energy and time, there never seems to be a shortage of asking them to “do more with less.”
This high-energy session will use Goal Setting as a tool and will be delivered using a combination of lecture-style, discussions, activities, and self-reflection to help:
- Re-evaluate your goal setting tactics and use a “laid-back” goal setting approach to identify your business priorities.
- Challenge your traditional thinking of productivity and explore how to “achieve more by doing less.”
- Effectively communicate the alignment between your results and your business objectives.

EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP
Everything we sense travels through our bodies in the form of electrical signals, which enter at the base of the spinal cord, travel through the emotional centre, then up to the rational region of the brain. In other words, we experience things emotionally before our reason kicks in. When we improve the communication between these emotional and rational centres of the brain, life gets better. We know this now: emotional intelligence is a strong predictor of workplace performance, successful leadership, and more fulfilling relationships.
In this session, we will focus on emotionally intelligent leadership, with an emphasis on blame-free conflict resolution. The most common ways of dealing with conflict often leave one or both parties dissatisfied. A lack of understanding in how the brain and body operate while under stress can lead to emotional outbursts, which trigger a similar response in the other party. And not knowing how to access the heart of the conflict—what is really going on—can leave us entrenched in our own views. This session will teach you how to better understand your own emotional data, which will quickly get you out of your own way. You will then have more capacity for empathetic listening, which (let’s be honest) will earn you loads of points. And I will give you the actual script for resolving any conflict that comes your way. (You’re very welcome!)
If you want to earn more respect, trust, and loyalty from the people in your life, this session is for you.
