Conscious Leadership in the 21st Century

As evidenced in news events around the globe, the crumbling old style of leadership no longer works in today’s world. The most successful leaders inspire those they lead to function at their highest and best and to work in unity as a team or “family.” The best leaders first look to themselves with honest awareness and and then look outside themselves to meet the needs of those they lead. This presentation will show how to strengthen skills of compassionate communication; self-awareness and self-regulation; and perceptual balance in order to empower others and lead by example.

"Your presentation was so insightful and engaging ... The points you made are ones that will make us better managers, better listeners, and more effective business people."

Leanna Comer, President of Research

There’s a Pony in Here Somewhere!
(or Getting Through Challenging Times with Grace)

We will all experience challenging times in our lives. What we do with them is up to us. The why and how of looking for and "finding the pony" is a focus (and even skill) of mind and attitude. Learn to meet these challenges with grace, resourcefulness, strength and positivity, and truly find the gifts in the midst of change.

"Thank you for providing an inspiring and motivating keynote address! The keynote was a vital component in the success of this first time event. We made a very good decision in inviting you to speak!"

Sue Downs, Vice-President of Patient Care Services
