This is where you should answer the most common questions prospective customers might have. It’s a good idea to cover things like your return policy, product warranty info, shipping and returns, etc. Check out the examples below.
Some of Carole’s impactful topics include:
Forging an Organization of Purpose
Believe it or not, every organization has a purpose. It may appear to be simple – to sell more donuts or create higher investment yields. Most of the time, hidden within mission statements with too many buzzwords, you can usually find a glimmer of meaningful purpose. Why the organization started … who cared enough to create it … what it needs to thrive?
Simply telling employees what the purpose of the organization is, won’t make everyone start showing up on time and giving 110%. Every individual is … well, individual. Different things motivate different employees. Yet everyone has a desire to matter, be relevant, and contribute. The challenge is how to connect these passions and needs to the organization’s great and worthy purpose.
In this inspiring presentation, Carole shows how purpose needs to be modeled for different types of employees and constituents. The results can help truly forge a new company from the ores of the old.
The Journey of Leadership
“It isn’t the leader who makes the organization successful, it’s the organization that makes the leader successful.” – Lee Thayer
An impressive title doesn’t confer automatic leadership qualities. Nor does it guarantee success. Carole shows that leadership in and of itself is NOT the destination, but only the start of the real journey. That journey will be led by the organization and the people within it. What does that mean for a leader trying to navigate their vision and ensure the organization’s success?
With the proven technique of creating Learning Organizations, Carole walks through the four different concepts of leadership cognition. A virtuoso leader can use those concepts to conduct an organization as smoothly as an orchestra. From Organization-Making to Meaning-Management, she outlines methods of successfully performing leadership rather than merely acting leadership.
Creating a TGIM Culture
What if every Monday, your team couldn’t wait to get back to work? It may seem impossible to get every employee on board with your vision, but the fact is, people crave a reason to get up in the morning. People perform better (and in healthcare, sometimes perform miracles) when they feel they are working towards a greater purpose than just a paycheck.
Part of purpose is empowerment. When team members don’t connect to their own capabilities and strengths, they feel their purpose can’t be achieved and care less about the organization’s purpose. They can even see the organization’s goals as opposing their own. Carole walks you through the process of alignment through purpose.
Can it work at every level? Can the hourly-wage maintenance staff find the same connection to purpose that a nationally-recognized surgeon can? Carole shows how to change the narrative of employees who may feel undervalued or ignored, and making the playing field level so that each employee can find their personal commute to a TGIM work life.
What We Permit We Promote
Developing employees personally and professionally can be one of the most rewarding aspects of leadership. It goes without saying that successful leaders surround themselves with people that challenge both themselves and “the way it’s always been done.” However, almost every employee carries unseen baggage from their educational days, past jobs and even their personal lives.
Compassionate leaders work to grow their people – but the behavior a leader permits is also behavior that gets promoted to anyone that sees it. Recognizing minefields, changing the narrative and ensuring employees are committed to their purpose are among the strategies Carole presents to address these challenges. An organization’s future depends on those who will steward it. Developing those people doesn’t have to mean developing problems.
Connect A Rising Star
The rising stars in an organization take initiative, finding ways to make amazing things happen on their own. Leaders that can harness that raw talent, and channel it into the purpose of the organization can make miracles happen. No two executives are alike, and providing benchmarks for success in vastly different departments, like sales and creative, can be a challenge. As flatter hierarchies emerge in organizations, which of these up and comers will be the ones to turbocharge which initiatives? Which will be the ones to groom for senior leadership?
Carole’s proven strategies for identifying rising executive talent and their skillsets form the basis of this workshop. She provides techniques for uncovering the talents each one possesses, figuring out where they mesh with the organization’s current structure (and how that will change as their professional development evolves) and how to keep them continually engaged with the organization’s purpose.
