Keynote # 1

Cultivate a culture of resilience:  connect and lead from the inside out

Connection is the heartbeat of life and leadership - especially during uncertain times.  The reality is that connecting, motivating and leading your team through the pace of change that we will continue to see - can be a challenge to say the least. The importance of self-leadership and the relationship with ourselves is constantly unfolding, as is our leadership and our ability to serve and create impact with others. Just as leadership requires an inside out approach, so does culture. True culture is built from the inside out starting with each of us. The great news here? Whatever your desired result; your impact and your culture starts with you…and you can do a lot about that.

Our world has changed. How we create culture now needs more intention, care, and presence than ever before. Overwhelm, stress, burnout, too much to do, competing priorities, stresses of home, work and everything in between. In this talk, Cherona shares the power of using intention, service, and self-leadership foundations to create impact, and provides frameworks for up-levelling your leadership presence and connection to ignite a dynamic workplace culture.

Key focus areas

  • Position yourself to lead with intention
  • Resilience toolkit for sustainable growth
  • Minimise unnecessary noise
  • Practical strategies to motivate and mobilise without toxic positivity

Keynote # 2

Leading, one deepwater conversation at a time.

What separates the good leaders from the great leaders, the good teams from the great teams, the good businesses from the great businesses, is the ability to give their eyes, hearts, and focus to their highest priorities.

The future of our world is changing. The future of work is changing. The future of how we need to lead is changing. And, there is an epidemic with how people are thinking and approaching their work.

The mindset that leaders and teams bring to their daily work is what will either raise up or tear down every team.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if a leader is an extravert or an introvert, or has a certain personality type, or if they are following every leadership best practice perfectly. What matters is their willingness to work on evolving their leadership skills for the long haul. Are you busy or effective? Perhaps you need to be reminded that where you look is where you go!

Key focus areas

  • Discover self-awareness
  • Clarity and intention
  • Proactivity and behaviours
  • Consistency
  • Importance of story telling
  • Influence within
  • Lead authentically
  • The power of softskills

        ​Well I did not even know about life/business coaching. I was at a conference where Cherona did a motivational talk, and I was drawn to her immediately. I started my virtual sessions in August 2020 and have since grasped a greater understanding of my thoughts and areas in my life that needed adjusting. I am more confident and feel that I can make better decisions for my future. As a mom and wife I am also coping with conflict much better and being able to express myself without constant doubt. Thank you for being you Cherona, my sessions with you were always a highlight. Amanda, PE, SA

        Hierdie jaar was vir ons span baie uitputtend en die moraal in die maatskappy was bitter laag. As bestuur het ons goed gedink om ‘n motiverings sessie te reel en begin rondvra oor wie ons kan benader. Cherona se naam het ‘n paar keer opgekom en ons het haar in Oktober maand bespreek vir ‘n sessie. Haar energie is aansteeklik en haar leierskap en mensekennis is ongelooflik. Ons was bekommerd oor die “online” metode, maar dit het gevoel of sy saam met ons in die konferensie kamer was. Sy is prakties, het ‘n goeie sin vir humor en ons gaan haar absoluut weer in 2021 bespreek. Leon, Vanderbijlpark, SA

        I did a Microsoft suite course with Cherona and I went from being so anti- computer to loving it! she shows you everything you need to know, all the tips and tricks and which makes it so nice is that you don’t even feel like you are in a class- that is how fun, easy and relatable she makes it! still applying those skills till to day.
