  • From Burnout to Brilliance
    From Burnout to Brilliance Gemma Garbett, Soul Alignment Coach Recorded: Aug 16 2018 47 mins
    As a Spiritual Entrepreneur, it is your mission to help others through your beautiful work.
    However, often you use that much energy helping to enlighten and heal the lives of others that you put your own self care and energy on the back burner. You end up ill because you have pushed yourself beyond you energetic boundary just to help 'one more client'. Just to enlighten the life of one more person.

    That client then becomes your breaking point and you sinking into a low energy vibe because you have nothing left to give. This even turns to illness in some cases. Burnout can be anything from a continual spate of illness to mental, emotional, physical and spiritual exhaustion.

    This is caused by prolonged stress of not being able to meet demand and pushing yourself to the brink.

    In this free webinar, Gemma will share with you how to:
    -Avoid burnout by recognising your limits
    -Find ways to be your own self care first whilst still lighting up the lives of your clients
    -Help your clients to heal without the need to drain yourself in the process
    -Balance work and family to allow yourself to live the most fulfilling life you want to.
    -Still achieve everything you want in your business by using energetic healing techniques that take less than 5 minutes daily.

  • Future of Thinking Series: Critical Thinking
    Future of Thinking Series: Critical Thinking Jason O'Neill, Kepner-Tregoe & Veena Rajkumar, Western Digital Recorded: Aug 14 2018 60 mins
    With 90% of all data in the world created in just the past 2 years, you’ll probably be surprised to hear that thinking processes generated 2,500 years ago can still help us to make sense of this explosion of information. Critical thinking through rational, unbiased analysis is still a bedrock for survival in business today. While disruption and innovation are very important (see our Future of Thinking Series parts I and II for more on these topics), modern critical thinking models are the linchpin that determines success or failure in nearly every industry and job.

    If you want to learn how to focus on essential information, ignore irrelevant inputs and solve complex problems, one key will be to understand critical thinking and when to apply it.

    Join Jason O'Neill, Head of Global Training Services with Kepner-Tregoe and Veena Rajkumar, Learning & Development Program Manager, Western Digital, in the third and final installment of our "Future of Thinking" series where they’ll discuss how critical thinking is more important today than ever before.

  • Say it with purpose: A framework for handling difficult conversations
    Say it with purpose: A framework for handling difficult conversations Dominique Mas, Founder, Lead with a Twist Recorded: Aug 10 2018 49 mins
    As leaders, our role is to support and serve others so they can grow, be challenged and become the leaders of themselves and others we need them to be. With the responsibility of leadership, come both the satisfaction of seeing others’ achievements but also, the difficulty of dealing with those who are reluctant to change.

    Many recent studies show that self-awareness is one of the most important qualities we can develop in ourselves and others. Our self-awareness allows us to step outside of ourselves so that we can fully focus on giving others the opportunity to reflect and change. As we recognize that change is never easy, we need to handle conversations in a sensitive, yet outcome-focused manner if they are to have the desired effect of helping others grow and develop their own self-awareness.

    The magic of growth happens when we step out of comfort zone and Dominique Mas believe that everyone deserves a chance to be shown how to get there! As leaders, we can provide this chance through conversation as we show a growth mindset for ourselves and others.

    In this webinar, you will:
    -Learn to frame difficult conversations in a non-threatening, yet powerful way to ensure a strong impact
    -Reflect on how to prepare yourself for the conversation
    -Reflect on how to prepare the other person for the conversation
    -Gain tools to stay in control during the situation and follow up to ensure the outcome is clear and solution focused.

  • Cloud Sprawl: Avoiding the Sprawl of Uncontrolled Innovation
    Cloud Sprawl: Avoiding the Sprawl of Uncontrolled Innovation Aaron Polikaitis Recorded: Aug 9 2018 38 mins
    Cloud sprawl is one of the top three challenges faced by CIOs, with over 90% of enterprises impacted. The simplicity of spinning up a new SaaS application in the cloud has emboldened LOBs to go solo. Enterprise LOBs, eager to transform their operations, are rushing to implement cloud-based SaaS solutions, often without support from IT. Unfortunately, with each implementation, technical debt accumulates. Although initial pilot costs may be minimal, as applications begin to scale, their financial impact becomes significant. In the face of this complex set of challenges, it falls to IT executives to keep cloud sprawl from casting a dark shadow on the enterprise.

  • Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace
    Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Aug 8 2018 62 mins
    What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?

    Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
    April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
    Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.

    This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.

    The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.
  • Why Ethics are the fastest growing new Business Best Practices
    Why Ethics are the fastest growing new Business Best Practices Jennifer Riggins Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    80% of developers don’t feel it’s their responsibility if unethical products go live. Are they right?

    This episode of WIT: Women in Touch features a conversation among women in tech who believe this majority is not right. As a follow up to July's Coed: Ethics conference, a London tech ethics conference, we're grabbing a cuppa and sitting down with women who are actively working on the ethics surrounding data science, decision making, scaling, coding, the psychology and motivation behind it all.

    Who should join? While our guests are awesome women in tech, the cases of Facebook, Uber and Volkswagen are not just isolated incidents and everyone at any level at any company faces ethical decisions every day. We think everyone can benefit from joining this discussion live or listening to the recording after! Applying a framework or an action plan to consider the ethical implications of your work is a business best practice.

    This week's guests:
    Yanqing Cheng - high-scale networking systems engineer with MetaSwitch Networks - a job mixing forward-looking ideas with decades-old protocols, which provides constant insights into the balancing act between innovation and stability.

    Pricing is one of the highest impact growth levers in a business, but most companies spend less than 15 hours per year on their pricing strategy.

  • The Art of Sales and Management
    The Art of Sales and Management Laurence Winmill, ISM Fellow Sep 4 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    I keep saying to business owners, C-Suite Executives, Managers and Employees that nothing happens in business until somebody sells something.

    That’s the message of this webinar. Great organisations are those that understand people, create and adapt process and manage with empathy and leadership that inspires everyone in the business to work, breathe and share the core values that underpin everything the brand stands for.

    Sales is all about people and the messages focus on why selling is an emotional experience and the essential human characteristics needed to be successful. It’s not about glittering CV’s or past reputation it’s about what you believe and how persuasive and authentic your messages are during your conversations between you and the client.

    However, structure and processes that keep the business on track are an important part of any organisation’s success and having the right leaders in place that understand people and live and breathe the visions and values of the company is an essential part of the machine.

    Great people, processes that work and inspired leadership is what this webinar is all about.
