    Own Your Story--A Personal Brand Workshop Olivia Christian Brand Strategist, Workshop Lead Recorded: Mar 8 2018 31 mins
    An organization's vision and purpose is communicated from the top down. CEOs, Executive Directors and Leadership Teams are charged with motivating varying audiences to their goal or cause, e.g. invest, volunteer, give, attend, work with us. What's essential in effectively communicating a vision and purpose that includes both the logical--the head, and the emotional--the heart?

  • Catch Your Leadership Stride: Behaviors that Drive Success
    Catch Your Leadership Stride: Behaviors that Drive Success Leslie A. Rubin and Kendra Dahlstrom Recorded: Mar 8 2018 59 mins
    A successful and effective leader is like an athlete- they must continuously train to stay ahead in an ever-changing business climate. Many leaders come with “built-in” skills and behaviors that give them an advantage, while others may need to learn new behaviors just to stay in the race.

    In this session, we’ll discuss what it takes to be a great leader – from a high degree of self-awareness to a stomach for ambiguity, to be an effective communicator, and of course, maintain a positive attitude. These are just a few of the behaviors we’ll uncover that are needed for both the aspiring and current leader to catch and maintain a leadership stride. We’ll also highlight real-life examples of current executives and leaders, and share some key tips to evaluate what’s working and what’s not.

    In this interactive session, you will learn:
    •What it takes to have a leadership mindset.
    •Identifying behaviors that we need to "unpack" or need to evolve.
    •Understand core attributes great leaders must have when they are leading a team, running a company or communicating.

    Presenters:
    Leslie A. Rubin, CEO, Image Matterz Consulting, Author, and Co-Founder of Executive Greatness Institute
    Kendra Dahlstrom, CEO, Aspire to Be International, Author & Coach
