  • Leading Virtual Teams In A Fast Changing Workplace

    In 2020 Companies rapidly pivot and adjust to the major disruption of the Pandemic.

    Leaders have had to quickly shift their teams to work virtually and this quick shift has created challenges that include keeping teams engaged and productive.

    In this virtual keynote you will learn:

    • The new hybrid future of work reality and what it means for business
    • How leaders can increase team culture in a virtual team/ in office team reality
    • How to increase team motivation with half the teams working remotely
    • A change leadership model to help leaders coach their teams to greater productivity
    • How to leverage video/collaboration tools to increase team collaboration

  • Navigating What’s Next in a Post Covid-19 Reality

    What WAS predicted by futurists was a remote work reality, an automated reality and a new way of leading in the future of work.

    The best way to predict the future is to focus on the now and look at patterns to look at ‘what’s next’. There is no going back to ’normal’ there is only preparing for and creating the future.

    In this virtual keynote you will learn:

    • A look into the future and ’next normal’ of work including hybrid work set ups
    • Case studies of companies who are shifting to ‘virtual’ workplace as their new normal
    • A model on how leaders and teams can change and adapt quickly to ongoing disruption and change
    • The top 5 skills needed by leaders and teams to increase agility and adaptability

    • How to use the PREDICT model to navigate what’s next for your business and industry

  • Leading Change In a Post Covid-19 Future - How To Deal With People Challenges in a Work From Home Reality

    In the past workplace culture was handled based on in-person conversations, performance was measured on metrics as well as on team interactions.

    Now and into the future workplace culture is about remote and how to engage with remote workers and how to succeed in remote teams.

    In the past few months, our surveys have found that leaders are struggling with how to lead, engage and manage performance of their WFH workers.

    In this virtual keynote you will learn:

    • Research on how work has completely shifted the mentalities of workers due to remote and WFH reality
    • How the remote work reality has shifted perspectives on performance measurement
    • Why certain workers have adapted well to virtual work and others are struggling to juggle multiple challenges (mental health/childcare/working in a non-office environment)
    • How training has changed from in-office mentoring towards a structured learning plan
    • The emotional reality of the pandemic disruption and how to deal with changes in people leaving (honoring longtime workers who are leaving)
    • How to clearly articulate performance expectations throughout changing financial reality (budget/downsizing)

  • Lead with 20/20 Vision: Building the Workplace of the Future Today
