Laser-Focused Engagement: Leveraging Interruptions and Distractions
Our wok lives are inundated with interruptions and distractions. Ever-increasing intensity negatively impacts employee engagement, performance, productivity and morale. The overwhelmed professional has become the new normal.

Over the past decade, research has consistently proven that over 70% of employees are disengaged at work. The illusion of multitasking lowers our productivity. We task switch every three minutes. We check email every five minutes. Some of us engage our hand-held device up to 300 times a day. People who are interrupted take 50% longer to complete a task and make 50% more errors. It takes sixteen minutes to get refocused after each disruption. We spend less than 60% of our day fully engaged and productive.

Supporting and developing employee engagement does not happen by accident or good intentions. Traditional talent management is ineffective and can damage employee morale and culture. Technology offers partial solutions, but fails to create authentic behavior change.

During this dynamic keynote, we show you how to develop and align intellectual, emotional and physical engagement. We teach simple tools and strategies that empower you to use workplace challenges as opportunities for improvement. The success of your career, team and company depend upon the quality of your individual and collective engagement. The outcome of this keynote is an audience with insights, tools and strategies for using distractions, disruptions and intensity as catalysts for strengthening engagement, performance and productivity.

Leading From Your Center: Transforming Talent Management
Like all things in the modern world of work, leadership is undergoing a profound transformation. Employees have become resistance to top-down, command and control approaches to management. They want companies that respect and support both their professional and personal life. They’re seeking managers that can connect, communicate and collaborate. Despite these changes, leaders are still the most powerful influencers in determining employee engagement, productivity, development, stress levels, and retention.

Sustaining positive and productive working relationships with employees is a subtle and complex process for managers. Simple conversations, interactions and decisions can make or break team engagement and morale. Every interaction, both live and digital, offers unlimited opportunities for development and improvement. You can’t say one thing and do another. Leaders must not only model, but actually embody their words.

Every individual and team has a center. The center is the place where success happens. When centered, we’re more engaged and productive with less strain, stress and effort. When heads, hearts and actions are aligned, team work soars. The best teams and companies in any category are living examples of the unstoppable power of working from the center.

Working from the center does not happen by accident or good intentions. Rising stress levels, distractions, multitasking and overwhelm are constantly disconnecting us from the center. So much of management happens in the moment with people. Accessing our center taps our intrinsic capacity for continuous improvement. High performance leaders know how to use intensity to strengthen their center, and guide and support employees to do the same. There is no management style, approach or manual that can duplicate the precision and power of leading from the center.

Beyond Health: Creating a Culture of Wellness

Employees are a company’s greatest asset, and the quality of their health is absolutely critical. Increasing health care costs and decreasing levels of employee engagement have made employee wellness a central priority. Employees that are not healthy have higher heath costs and lower levels of performance and productivity. Overall employee wellness can make or break a company’s success.

Using data and analytics, many leaders and managers are seeking wellness initiatives to address this crisis. However, data about the state of employee wellness rarely translates into programs and solutions that drive authentic behavior change. Most people resist making lifestyle changes due to long-held perspectives and belief systems. Even when we know it’s essential to change, it’s rarely easy to alter our habits. Companies that focus solely on the physical aspects of health are missing critical elements that are essential for authentic lifestyle changes and sustaining a successful program.
