One on One Conversations with Direct Reports

The DRS Cure for Professional Stress
Using a humorous yet focused style, the session promotes an understanding of the positive power of self- responsibility when it comes to stress. This talk concentrates on personal management strategies that help make our professional lives more enjoyable and productive.

The Leader’s Journey
Inspired by Joseph Campbell’s “The Hero’s Journey”, this dynamic presentation shows how we all have the potential to access our inner leader. The essence of the leader’s journey is simple: discovering one’s own inner courage to develop and grow in the face of our challenges. Transformational leadership starts when a leader understands that his/her personal transformation can help transform a team, a department or an organization.

Your Stories – Your Leadership
This talk is a “teach-in” – where you learn how to blend the essential ingredients of a story to make it stick with the audience. You’ll also learn how to create more leadership presence by telling the story with your body and your tone.

The Privilege of a Lifetime
This presentation covers how to avoid gurus and to be “un-Googleable” when you present yourself in the world. We’re going to look at leadership in terms of your story, your singular adventure, your authentic vitality that energizes others. Only your unique leadership answers the question “Why should people be willing to be influenced by you?”
