Management & Leadership Keynotes

We understand the challenges that technical professionals face. Our management and leadership keynote presentations are tailored to address those challenges. With our keynote presentations, your audience will learn how to effectively manage and lead others.

Bridging the Gap:
From Technical Expert to Project Manager

Level-headed, analytical problem-solvers. Those are the frequently cited traits of technical professionals. But those attributes are wasted unless they are integrated with other necessary skills for leadership and management. The skill gap is wider than you may think.

Through this highly interactive and engaging program, the audience discovers the “gap” and identifies the most critical skills needed to successfully bridge the gap to develop and keep your up-and-coming professionals.

Collaboration and Communication:
Teamwork Skills You Need Now

Boost your team’s performance by bringing more collaboration and communication to their teamwork. This timely and relevant professional development program uses a short self- assessment tool to gain insight into their communication st#59813b#59813byle. The assessment transforms human behaviors into a science-based approach. Through an interactive approach, participants identify behavior characteristics of four communication styles which form the foundation for reading the room.

With their personal communication style as a baseline, they discover how to adapt their behavior for other styles so that they create connection and trust. As a result, complex work is accomplished more effectively.

It’s Not Just About the Money

The research is in. Motivation is not just about money. Take advantage of neuroscience to discover insightful ways to effectively motivate staff or volunteers and cultivate engagement. Learn the five factors that reward the brain for sustainable motivation. Identify practical ways to apply them in your organization or association.

This interactive session engages the audience so that they leave with specific action steps that are applicable in their organization.
