OUR UPCOMING GUEST SPEAKERS AND TOPICS
"Activate Your Real World Superpowers"
with: Dale Henry
Thursday Morning, May 6th
7:30 - 9:00 am
Leveraging your TRUE STRENGTHS (not your StrengthsFinder ‘top 5’ talent themes) is the #1 driver of performance, achievement, enjoyment, and personal success. Unfortunately, studies show that less than 20% (actually 12%) of us leverage our strengths in our daily work.
So let’s fix that! And have some fun in the process.
This presentation will take you far beyond where all others (give up &) leave off in identifying, developing and leveraging your TRUE STRENGTHS – to the point they feel & perform like real world superpowers – to multiply you success in pursuit of your goals & dreams.
You will learn:
How TRUE STRENGTHS differ from StrengthsFinder talent themes (oh, and how they are 30 times more valuable!)
Two of the 4 ways to identify your TRUE STRENGTHS and communicate their value to potential future employers
To identify your ‘highest most distinctive value’ (your real world superpowers) and ensure you’re memorable during the hiring process (using your ‘call sign’ and ‘tagline’).
Dale Henry (a.k.a. ‘The Diamond Cutter’) is known for ‘helping ordinary people accomplish extraordinary things’. He’s the founder of Critical Insight Group, and the creator of the professional coaching program called The Real World Superhero Academy. He’s been hired by over 50 Fortune 500 companies, along with countess small and mid-sized businesses, to improve the performance, and lives, of over 1.2 million people throughout North America.
He’s also a Master Human Capital Strategist, with the Human Capital Institute and a founding partner in the international John Maxwell Team (of leadership and performance coaches).
"Awareness, Authenticity, and Adaptability - Creating More Effective Conversations"
with: Jon Halleen
Thursday Evening, May 13th
7:00 - 8:30 pm
Conversations connect us to other people.
When we understand ourselves, and when we use questions to discover things about other people, we can have better conversations. Knowing what is important to the other person and responding with useful feedback can help us make progress with each other.
This is crucial when we network or interview, and whenever we attempt to sell ourselves or our ideas. The ability to influence and even persuade people to consider solutions is the pathway to solving problems.
“The Most Important Investment You Can Make Is in Yourself.” - Warren Buffet
Your effort, time, and money to improve yourself will increase your future value.
Beyond the fundamental skills everyone needs to be successful in life, we will talk about building the human skills to become more psychologically and emotionally flexible. We will address the Automatic and Reactive Systems which damage our ability to communicate and relate to others. We can shift from our limiting beliefs and cognitive biases to more purposeful Adaptive Capabilities. This helps us move from being fixed or stuck, so that we can embrace change and growth.

"Connecting and Communicating with the Brain in Mind:
Know your Triggers to Achieve Better Outcomes"
with: Julie Loosbrock
Thursday Morning, May 20th
7:30 - 9:00 am
“We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are” (Anais Nin).
How familiar are you with the impact your brain has in processing the world around you? Do you understand the role your brain plays in how you react and respond to life in the here & now? Gaining some insight in this realm and learning some simple techniques can truly make a major difference for you both personally and professionally.
Everything you do in life is based upon your brain’s determination to minimize threat or maximize reward. In fact, your brain treats social threats with the same (OR EVEN GREATER) intensity than physical threats. The world of work is one big social system, that can contain both social threats and social rewards.
When we experience “threat”, our capacity to make decisions, solve problems, collaborate, etc. is greatly reduced. Is there any hope for change? YES! Knowing this information, can help us make conscious choices and decisions to offset threat and employ reward strategies.
During our time together, we will: 1) understand the organizing principle of the brain, 2) understand the SCARF® (Status, Certainty Autonomy, Relatedness Fairness) model and how you and others are “triggered” in each of the psychological/social domains, 3) learn how to manage SCARF® to drive better outcomes for yourself and in interactions with others, and 4) learn some simple techniques you can implement to put you in the driver’s seat.
Knowing this information and putting it to use in your day to day life, will help you navigate the “world of work” and the “world of social” more successfully. You will experience the difference this can make for you and those around you immediately.
