9/11 AND BEYOND:  WHAT I LEARNED LEADING DURING TRYING TIMES

September 11th, 2001 was a gorgeous day in Washington, DC.  Within 2 hours of getting to work and meeting with my team, everything changed.  Not only for us but for everyone in America.  On that day and the months that followed, I learned a lot about myself and the people around me about courage, commitment, and the ingenuity of Americans that have a purpose and want to make a difference.  They are lessons any leader can use to lead better, get more done, and leave a legacy.

FOLLOWING WITH LESS STRESS AND MORE FUN

Time Magazine declared stress the epidemic of the 1980’s and things haven’t slowed down since then! Computers, cell phones, and the daily grind can leave people feeling like they are diagonally parked in a parallel universe! Laughs abound as audience members learn how to “Deal With it Positively” so they can make the shift in attitude when things get tight.

CHANGE SUCKS! NAVIGATE IT WITH GOOD ATTITUDE!

Change is good! We know it and accept it as a premise but this phrase becomes empty and tiresome when all we know is change. In today’s world, change comes at us like a “F-5” Tornado – hurtling objects at us so fiercely that we have to hide in the basement for protection and wait for the winds to subside. Navigate the storm with respect, authenticity, kindness, and a positive mental attitude! Audiences will leave with new tools to navigate organizational changes and make the most of the opportunities that appear.
