We're in an era of information overload, trying desperately to manage an ever-increasing volume of incoming and outgoing communications. Whether you communicate virtually or in person, your audience is likely distracted... and so are you. It's become increasingly difficult to know what to say, how to say it, and which communication channel to use.
74% of employees who quit say that a lack of appreciation drove their decision to leave. And while the majority of leaders think they do a good job of recognizing their teams, only 17% of employees agree. Why? Because leaders tend to recognize a job well done, while employees yearn to feel appreciated for who they are ... not just what they do.
She ultimate success of your change initiative is not driven only by the quality of your solution or idea. It's driven by the level of acceptance among those who are impacted by the change. While we like to believe that decisions are based on data, that's simply not true. In order to lead successful change, you must navigate the emotions of change.
Today's audiences are busy, distracted and tired. Traditional presentation techniques are guaranteed to bore them to sleep. If you want to grab your audience's attention, keep them listening and influence their decisions, you need to toss traditional presentation techniques aside and start to swim upstream!
Neuroscience proves that decisions are made in the emotional brain. Though we like to believe that decisions are data-driven, it's just not true. To effectively influence others, you must appeal to the emotional and logical brains. If you fail to convince one or the other, you may achieve short-term compliance, but not a long-term commitment.
Regardless of where you are in your career, one thing is certain:
the path to success is often unclear.
Grounded in a simple and combination of competencies, BOLD guides individuals and organizations along the complex path of career success with deliberate development, deliberate choices and undeniable results!
Managing priorities has never been more challenging than in today’s hybrid work environment where our professional and personal lives are suddenly integrated. Burnout is at an all-time high and we often believe that "if we just had more time," we could accomplish everything. But to truly optimize results and attain fulfillment in life and work, it's imperative to look beyond time.
Early-career employees are tomorrow's leaders, so start developing them today!
Kickstart Your Career - an immersive workshop experience - offers insights, advice and practical skills to help young professionals add value and get noticed with Visibility, Interaction and Performance. Attendees build a professional brand while your company cultivates a talent pipeline.
If you're using the same generic interview questions, you're going to get the same generic responses. Don't let your candidates be more prepared than you! Learn to pinpoint high performance and select the best talent with a unique interview method that can't be rehearsed.
87% of employees want feedback but only 33% say they receive enough to support their development. And those responsible for giving feedback have a long list of reasons to avoid it. By adopting a new mindset on feedback and mastering the tools to do it well, we equip managers with confidence and skills to help employees grow.
The Golden Rule is nice. But once you cross the invisible threshold into leadership, it's just not enough. The most successful leaders live by the Platinum Rule - they recognize and embrace individual differences, then adjust their approach to unleash each person’s best personal performance.
The Leading with Confidence Coaching Program provides a personalized and timely approach to leadership coaching and development. Each month, program participants bring their most current challenges to the discussion and leave with the insights and practical tools they need to lead with confidence.
The "great resignation" we were warned about is now upon us. As employees re-evaluate their priorities and purpose, it's clear that old plays won't work in this new game. Great companies are getting ahead of the curve, equipping leaders with knowledge, strategies and tools that work to engage employees in the "new normal."
COVID has triggered many of us to re-evaluate our personal and professional priorities. Current research shows that employees want to feel a connection between their work and a greater purpose. They are not interested in WHAT you do, but rather, WHY you do it. And they're willing to search for new roles when this need goes unfulfilled.
Every leader wants to lead their team to success. But you can't demand performance, you must inspire it ... and inspiration is an individual sport. The way you set goals, give feedback, coach and inspire one employee may not work with another.
Achieve your aspirations with a dedicated Career Sherpa! Through this transformative process, we'll help you receive clear feedback with grace, develop a clear view of your driving and restraining forces, then adjust your approach to unleash your best self. And we'll do it with candor and care that encourages you every step of the way.
Culture is an invisible influence that shapes the way we interact with others. Unspoken values shared within country and company are often so implicit that we "just expect" others to share our beliefs. And when they don't, we judge. Don't let your team fall prey to needless conflict and ultimate failure. Equip them with the tools they need to understand, adjust and excel across cultures.
Radically candid conversation is a must for any team trying to excel in today's fast-paced environment. As context and priorities change, teams must be able to pivot and adjust just as quickly. During the Team Touchpoint, we'll guide you through an open dialog to celebrate positives, surface challenges and outline clear action plans that fuel your collective success. There are no "elephants in the room" allowed here ... we bring them all to the forefront!
We all have different communication styles and we tend to judge others through the lens of our personal preferences, which creates unnecessary conflict and tension within teams. The DiSC® Workshop helps you read others' styles and find value in their way, then adjust your approach to better connect, collaborate and communicate with everyone in your world.
A must-do exercise for new managers joining an established team!
Reveal a manager and team's driving and restraining forces, then develop actionable plans to enhance team performance. There are no "elephants in the room" allowed here ...
we bring them all to the forefront.
