As you look to develop your managers, unite your teams, engage your new employees, and grow your talent, I’m here to help. I’ve worked with hundreds of organizations and consistently receive rave reviews. This is because I’m not afraid to dive into the core of all workplace miscommunication: effective feedback.
I believe company loyalty starts with rapport building and genuine conversations. For some this comes naturally, but most need training. That’s where I come in. Through my keynotes, workshops, and company retreats, you can expect a funny, engaging, tailored, thought-provoking experience to train and develop everyone on your team. Here’s what I bring to the table:
Before any engagement I spend time personally on the phone with multiple members of your organization to get a well rounded understanding of the talent and pain points that exist within the team. I like to know even the silliest little details, because it generates trust from the audience when I speak about tangible problems they’re facing. And for me, that trust is invaluable.
I’ve been living this work for 15+ years and wrote a book about it. Before I was a full time speaker, I spent years building, training, supervising, and evaluating teams. When I speak to audiences I share the lessons I’ve learned and the successes I’ve had in using my authentic leadership approach. These personal stories always hit home for audience members – because they’re real. I don’t show up with other people’s stories, when I show up you get me. Unapologetically me.
My background in improv and stand-up comedy helps me riff with audiences, making your team feel more comfortable and building rapport that comes quick and easy. Often audiences come into these keynotes and workshops closed off and disengaged. I love this challenge when I speak: I use humor to open everyone up, which makes space for us to have the genuine, raw, honest conversations that we all need.
This isn’t a passive experience; my presentation style is very interactive and inclusive. Our conversations will be thought-provoking, filled with self-awareness, and laced with comedy, which means your team will stay engaged from beginning to end. I also get audience members talking to each other, up on their feet with improv activities, and doing self-reflection. And it’s with this level of engagement that the words and concepts transform into action and results.
During our time together your team will break down barriers to solve current work environment issues, learn how to share negative and positive feedback, understand the benefits of being an active member on a team, and discover and apply the principles of being an authentic leader.
