“The communication workshops you conducted were received extremely well by our team  in Germany and the US. If we put into practice even 2% of the tools you taught, we will be much more effective.”

Sue managed a leadership program for a 4,500 person division. I learned immediately that she was a true expert in her field. With every interaction with our senior executives and training team she was able to communicate respectfully, graciously and objectively, no matter how tough the conversation. She is a a master in her field, and any company that engages Sue will benefit enormously from her exceptional skill.

Keynotes on Conscious Business

 (Also available virtually during Coronavirus period)

 

  • Leading From Wherever You Stand
    Challenging the traditional view of leadership, this keynote focuses on the powerful leadership presence every person can manifest when bringing the best to Self, Relationships, and Task.
  • Success Beyond Success
    Who hasn’t experienced when a desired position, promotion, or expectation has fallen short of what we had hoped? But success beyond success can be achieved, no matter the conditions. Based on the work of Victor Frankl with a powerful exercise to give every person in the room a “takeaway” that can’t be taken away.
  • Growing and Practicing Leadership Integrity
    How do we achieve true integrity in the eyes of others every day? Beyond the exalted sound of the word integrity, what can we DO to live it and feel the satisfaction that comes from it? This keynote introduces a specific framework and practices to help boost being one’s best, bringing out integrity not only in oneself but in others.
  • Negotiate Anything! (as long as you care about the other person)
    What a surprise when people find out ‘intractable differences’ can be transcended with the application of a tool that helps discover untapped common ground. A powerful process to experience and one that can be used in every relationship. This keynote requires at least 90 minutes.

  • Building A Culture of Commitment-Keeping & Accountability
    The #1 complaint in corporate environments is people not following through on commitments. This affects work output and working relationships alike. This keynote introduces a tool that changes everything and gives people protocols for guaranteeing better commitments from and to others.
  • Conscious Communication: How to Talk About Things that Matter
    How can we see our own thoughts more visibly before we say something we regret? Are there ways we can say what we really mean and ask what we really want without damaging the relationship? Yes! This keynote demonstrates how.
