Visual communication: Highly effective leaders master both
verbal and visual communication. The words you use can be brought to
life (or undermined) by your ability to illustrate thoughtfully. This
session will increase participation, animate meaning, focus attention,
grow understanding and create unity. Learn seven key frames and central
figures that comprise the language of visual communication, and practice
them in real time.
Creativity: We tend to think that creativity is reserved
for those with the natural ability to paint, compose a sonnet, or play a
musical instrument. Nothing could be further from the truth. We all have
the ability to be tremendously creative. Like anything else in life,
creativity (or developing your creativity) takes practice, persistence,
and discipline, but it can be a lot of fun too. Challenge your thinking
about creativity by destroying common myths and the idea that you aren't
creative. Learn the eight C's of our creative process and increase your
competitive advantage in both your personal and professional lives by
putting this creative approach into practice.
Personal Finance: Our personal and professional lives are
inseparable. Financial fluency starts with your own checkbook and
directly contributes to your business acumen in the workplace. We will
demystify the world of CD's, 401(k)s, ORAs, and insurance, and explain
the must-haves of your personal financial portfolio.
Business Finance: Most wish they knew about business
finance; however, we tend to run for the door when the CFO pulls out the
spreadsheets and speaks in what seems like a foreign language. Attend
this session and stay comfortably seated during the next financial
review and, more importantly, contribute! Explore the five basic
building blocks of any organization's money-making model. Whether
working in a nonprofit, for-profit, or government organization, these
five elements are at the heart of your financial success.
Personal Branding: What one word would your colleagues use
to describe your brand What word would you like them to use Do you
think there's a gap between the two This session will teach you the
fundamentals of marketplace branding and how to effectively leverage
them in the many facets of your life. Discover the value of a powerful
brand and how brands develop, evolve, and at times, implode. Harness the
elements of successful branding to craft your personal brand.
Project Management: Achieve success around your projects by
applying the mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets to consistently produce
high-quality projects on time and on budget. Learn to clarify
expectations of those with whom you work, both directly and indirectly.

expectations are met around time, budget and quality. Explore how to

behaviors necessary to achieve success in your current and future
