Conference Speaker | Workshop Presenter
Zoë's presentations focus on Connection in Leadership and our need to show up and be real, especially in the age of disruption.
Comfortable is complacent. And complacency kills in leadership! Industries have been swallowed whole by disruptive sea monsters basking in comfortable, blind assumptions. The antidote is cultivating the habit of adventure to cure complacency.
How to avoid complacency that leads to unwanted disruption.
How to check if you’ve slipped down the complacency slippery dip.
Core principles to guide adventurous innovation that pays dividends.
Simple steps to hone your adventurous spirit and lead, boundless!
The pressure on leaders has increased exponentially with the rapid pace of change. Social media presents the biggest risk to our most important currency - our reputation - especially if we don’t keep our cool.
In this entertaining and practical presentation, Zoë will share three critical aspects of leadership connection that will allow you to double your influence and halve your people stress.
Secrets of instant charisma, no matter how introverted you are.
How to stand your ground when your emotions are going wild.
Responding rather than reacting, especially in a confrontation.
Why do good people leave a good organisation?
Employee engagement is a chronic problem. We’ve tried open plan, work-based activity stations, work from home, perks, incentives… but people are still checking out - on the job and out the door.
The solution is not in carrots or sticks, but in experiences. Carefully designed experiences delivered in proper cadence creates workplaces that hum.
A great practical presentation to show executives how to get the most out of their people, and keep them on board:
How to stop unwanted staff turnover, boost engagement, and create lifelong advocates
What contributes to disengagement.
How to stop unwanted staff attrition.
When and how to create experiences that build commitment.
The skills you need to build boundless teams that stick with you through thick and thin.
