Fail Forward: Developing Resilient Leaders
A resilient leader is someone at any level of the organization that communicates powerfully, champions change and innovation, and is able to build trust and relationships that translate to established credibility. Playing it safe doesn’t equal success, and instead spells disaster. Great leaders are able to fail fast, fail forward by learning from their mistakes, and remain agile in their thought processes allowing them to adapt quickly.
You know a resilient leader by their ability to utilize failure as a catalyst to drive them toward the best resolutions to the most difficult problems, and as a result, these leaders have been proven to be more productive, engaged, and higher performing. These skills are more important than ever to organizations who are needing to maintain the rapid pace of change in a climate of challenges such as strained and diminished resources, increased responsibilities, and an evolving economy.
Learn to manage and navigate change, balance adversity, develop agility, embrace a growth mindset, and create a resilience toolbox to take yourself, your team, and your organization to the next level.
Replicate Excellence: Leading Through Influence
The attitudes and behaviors of others are creatively shaped through the positive influence of Leadership. Everyone has the ability to influence someone, but as leaders we are called to a higher standard to maintain a positive culture and fulfill the mandate of replicating leaders. Leadership is not a disposition or personality trait. Rather, Leadership is an assortment of skills that can be practiced and sharpened to utilize individual strengths, identify and stimulate the motivators of others, and positively influence behavior.
In this fast-paced and engaging keynote, you’ll learn and identify strategies that will help you to build trust and credibility, manage difficult conversations, utilize your strengths and understand your motivators.
The Happiness Factor: Taking Advantage of Positivity
Brain Links to Peak Performance
Dr. Sanchez provides a fast-paced and engaging keynote which addresses myths regarding peak performance and key motivators. She utilizes engaging research to debunk the myths that most companies and schools follow which is the formula- hard work equals more success and happiness. A decade of research shows that this formula is scientifically backward. Rather, studies show that training your brain to be positive is the key ingredient to fueling greater success. In fact, research says that 75% of our job success is predicted by your optimism, social support network and the ability to manage energy and stress in a positive way, and surprisingly not by intelligence. Dr. Sanchez will discuss current research brought forth by one of the most prominent thought leaders in the industry regarding trends towards maintaining the Happiness Factor that was learned by researching top performers at Harvard, the world’s largest banks, and Fortune 500 companies.
The Missing Ingredient & Secret Weapon: Emotional Intelligence
Challenging Highly Engaging Organizations to Change Culture with Intelligent Emotions
The research is clear that Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the single most effective and important driver of an engaged, results-driven, high performing workforce, especially in environments that are in a constant state of flux, or, are undergoing significant change and disruption.
The single most important question a manager or leader can ask themselves is, “Why would anyone want to be led me?” Answering this question honestly can enable a leader to unlock the potential and creativity of their people and be the secret weapon to catalyze engagement. Consider this, every morning your employees make the choice to get up and go to work, but they also choose whether or not to be engaged and productive once they arrive at work. Research indicates that the number one reason employees choose to be engaged and productive at work has nothing to do with a manager’s level of IQ or technical capabilities, but rather, the missing ingredient and secret weapon that every manager can have at their disposal, that is, the manager’s level of Emotional Intelligence (EI).
