Chairs Communication Exercise 

Most organizations struggle with communication. It is often listed as the number one problem executives have in leading their businesses. They struggle will silos, lack of clarity, disengagement, incomplete information, bottlenecks and more. These break downs cost organization millions of lost revenue each year. Managers are unable to get buy-in for change initiative so they are delayed. Customer feedback does not get to the people who can take action. Vision, mission, values and goals or poorly communicated often-leaving team members in the dark with little direction and motivation. New employees are quickly indoctrinated to the corporate communication practices and become disengaged.

We will provide a highly interactive process, which reveals your KCI’s (key communication indicators). This process allows people to experience the realities of organizational communication and connect their different roles to situations and flows of communication. Each person will learn what choices and opportunities for improvement they have based on the different roles and situations (which chair am I in ?) they find themselves in. Participants will learn how they can immediately improve their own communication flow and improve productivity and engagement.      

Educational Presentation - Spencer Horn

Office Mythology: The Truth About Authentic Leadership

Description: Most leaders want to be true to who they believe they are. This can be a challenge if who you are conflicts with your leadership role. Many leaders struggle with authenticity when there is change or a new role, or when they have to sell themselves or handle feedback for improvement. You will learn how to have the success you desire without selling out. Participants become aware of the power of patterned emotional responses, and learn how to re-train their brain in order to develop more productive habits. Developing the ability to master oneself in moments of tension and stress creates new habits as well as building a foundation for personal and professional success. Participants develop their ability to focus on assertive communication skills and handle challenging behaviors, which are essential in achieving organizational objectives.

Value To Members 

  • Become aware of the power of patterned emotional responses and continue to look for ways to interrupt unproductive behaviors.
  • Learn techniques to develop habits for improved results.
  • Manage conflict and challenging behaviors of others.
  • Enhance your ability to choose how you behave even in challenging or stressful situations.

This presentation is all about the stories we tell ourselves. We tell ourselves that we are certain "type" of person and that thinking keeps us stuck. When we understand there is a way to change the story in alignment with our attitudes and strengths, you will have greater motivation to change and achieve better results.
