Strategic Personal Branding - YOU are a brand!

Just like consumer brands (think Apple, Lexus, Tumi) need to be strategically positioned and re-positioned in the consumer marketplace, you need to position and re-position yourself in the workplace and in your industry. Bring your career plans, 360 reviews, ideas about your vision and let’s dig in together to build a strategic plan for brand YOU. Social media is a tactic not the strategy. Let’s spend some time strategically crafting your message to present your brand positively and distinctively.

 

Turning Your Wounds Into Wisdom

Kimberly Claborn shares her story of being a childhood domestic violence victim. She discusses the traumas she faced as a child because of it and the struggles she still faces to this day. Kimberly shares that at the age of 22, she began to help her mother break free of the 24-year abusive marriage to her father. Kimberly encountered many roadblocks within the legal system while trying to help her mother and sisters. 

Kimberly details how she began to educate herself on all forms of domestic violence, including the not so known form of abuse: financial abuse. She advocates the importance of breaking the silence, even when others continue to try and silence you from speaking out. She encourages those she speaks with, that no matter the criticism, opinions or backlash you may face, boldly stand in your truth; to empower yourself and the other women around you to no longer be ashamed of your story.

Be Intentional… Great Things Don't Just Happen

Do days, weeks, months, and even years just spin by and you aren't able to get what you want done?? Are you tired of working like crazy, but feel like there's more working against you than for you?? The frustration of knowing you have so much more capability to give beyond just the day-to-day and job-related expertise, makes it feel like you do a lot but what is the bigger gain or meaning.

Do any of these resonate with you?

  • You're tired of just showing up to work every day, but want to do great things?

  • You're excellent at what you do, but have so much more to offer?

  • You wish you could stop having to prove yourself, and people would trust your full value?

The truth is YOU are in control and that what you uniquely have to offer no one else does. When this truth guides your professional life, what you want no longer seems at the mercy of someone else giving you the break you deserve.

 

Inclusive Leadership, Shifting The Paradigm

Prior research found that over 80% of people who worked with an Inclusive Leader were more productive, motivated and loyal to the organization as well as willing to go the extra mile. Inclusive Leaders understand that in order for collaboration to be successful, individuals must be willing to share their diverse perspectives and experiences. However, 2/3 of respondents stated that in their experience less than half of their Mgrs & Senior Leaders actually demonstrated inclusive behaviors.

Fear: It’s Not a Dead End…It’s a Choice and an Opportunity!

This is not a session for the weak of heart. We’ll cover one of the scariest things out there that most don’t want to talk about — that four letter “f” word that can be the most damaging of them all — fear.

It’s scary to think about our fears, let alone share them with others, but we’ll be brave and focus not only on the fears themselves, but the amazing power that they have over us. If left alone, our fears grow stronger and try to stop us dead in our tracks keeping us from amazing opportunities for learning and adventure.

Join Dena as she talks about how we can get to know and appreciate fear and bring italong for the action rather than giving us an excuse for surrender.

Self-Care: Beyond the Bathtub

Do you wish someone prioritized YOU the way you prioritize everyone else?

I'm not talking about a bubble bath. I'm not even talking about a massage. Instead, I'm talking about self-care that allows you to create a way of life that honors your time, talent, and human bandwidth! By reframing how we think about self-care, we can start to build a life that is sustainable and joyful.

Can you even imagine how amazing it would feel to be nourished deeply on a day-to-day basis?

 

"Just Surviving" to "Successfully Thriving!"

As a survivor of childhood abuse, Stacy spent much of her life in a spiral of hopelessness, shame, and insecurity. She struggled in relationships and careers, and felt destined to be a broke single mom, waiting tables for the rest of her life. After running her first marathon in 2009, she discovered a strong, empowered woman within. Recently divorced and raising a son with autism, she made the daunting decision to go back to school in 2010. She quickly realized she had no clue HOW she was going to get to the finish line of graduation, but she was fueled by knowing her WHY.

In this highly inspirational presentation, Stacy will share some of the lessons learned on her crazy adventure. Now a triathlete, ultra-marathoner, speaker, and writer, Stacy will empower others to tap into their inner awesomeness and break down the barriers keeping them from their own greatness. She might make you laugh, she may make you cry, but she will definitely ignite your own spark within.

Re-thinking Work-Life Balance: Why Searching for Balance Isn’t Working (and What to Do Instead)

In today’s crazy-busy world of “leaning in” and trying to do and have “it all”, it’s no wonder so many “successful” women are stressed-out, exhausted, and overworked (and left wondering why they can’t find the “balance” they’ve been promised exists). The truth is, balance isn’t possible and isn’t even what you seek. What you want is to find success on your own terms. And success on your own terms requires clarity of purpose, finding peace of mind, and feeling prosperous in time, energy, and spirit.

Heather Moulder, founder of Course Correction Coaching and recovering attorney, shares how taking care of you will open the door to success on your own terms (and why self-care is at the heart of sustainable success).  In this interactive session, you’ll learn what you’re doing that’s preventing you from finding what you seek (and what to do instead), the 7 Pillars to finding purpose, peace, and prosperity, and how to start taking impeccable care of yourself without feeling selfish or guilty about it. It’s time to start taking care of you, so you can find sustainable success on your own terms.
