Keynote Topic #1

HOW TO BE A BETTER LEADER IN ANY SEASON

(Leadership Development/Change Management)

 

You want to take your leadership to the next level, but the question is “How?” You need a practical blueprint to change. Jones Loflin says that new approach is built on four simple words: Grow, Cultivate, Prune, and Harvest. In this innovative and engaging presentation built on the practices of a successful gardener, Jones equips leaders to identify where change is needed in their daily activities and take productive action. It’s time to get “growing” and harvest something better for your people and your organization.

Some Key Take-Aways include:

 

  • Create an environment for ideal growth and understand why leaving some things "unpruned" seldom brings optimal results

  • Improve communication and strengthen clarity about expectations and priorities
  • ​Identify three specific areas they need to address daily as a leader or manager
  • Discover what's limiting success and what's holding their team members back
  • Appreciate the value of celebrating more small wins with their team

Keynote Topic #2

IT'S TIME TO START RUNNING YOUR CIRCUS!

(Time Management/Work Life Balance/Productivity)

 

Using the model of a three-ring circus, this highly engaging presentation will equip you to better manage your time and energy to explore new opportunities and achieve better results. From being a stronger ringmaster to building a quality “3 ring” lineup (Work, Relationship, Self), expect to leave this session with a myriad of practical tips to manage your distractions, conquer your overload, and more fully focus on the present moment. Most importantly, you’ll be ready to run your circus instead of letting the circus run YOU!

Some Key Take-Aways include:

Keynote Topic #3

HOW TO THRIVE IN TIMES OF CHANGE

(Leadership/Change Management)

 

The past two years have created within many individuals and organizations a "wait and see" mindset. And while hope is a positive attribute, it's not a means by which to secure better results for the future. The bigger question that needs to be asked is, "How can we move forward now?"

This timely program is designed to equip participants with a mindset and practical tools to focus on professional and personal improvement when the path ahead is uncertain.

Some Key Take-Aways Include:

 

  • Understand how a "fixing problems" mindset isn't the best approach to moving forward in times of change
  • Create an environment where you and others are best equipped to move forward
  • Develop daily activities and routines that keep change moving forward
  • Determining what's NOT important right now so you can free up resources to more fully address your goals with a change
  • How to sustain forward movement in times of change even when it's uncomfortable

This program is perfect for leaders/team members and anyone who is dealing with the challenges of change.

    “Jones was a hit! We threw a fast ball at him by asking him to shorten his presentation even more than the one hour and he still managed to make an impression. All walked away with something to think about. Comments included: “Excellent Speaker who was on point,” “Quick information that encouraged me to buy the book,” and “Great idea to help organize my time.”
