How much are generational conflicts costing you? Maybe it’s a troubled relationship with a boss, or a business relationship with a client or someone on your team that’s impeding your success. You’ve probably had the opposite experience, too—when you have made a solid connection with someone of a different generation, like a great mentoring relationship, where you both learned from each other and benefited from each other’s different perspectives.
This webinar is about bridging generational differences to leverage generational diversity in your work teams. You will learn a quick way to increase understanding and empathy to connect with people from different generations in a non-judgmental, productive way. You can use this method to increase the cohesiveness of your teams and increase collaboration and performance.

Ali Golds, Growth Coach, Motivational Speaker, Author
Ali Golds is a survivor. Having experienced childhood abuse, an attempt on her life, a shocking marriage breakdown, and a spell in a women's refuge after escaping an abusive partner, Ali overcame it all to become a best-selling author, UK government adviser, motivational speaker, and charity founder; and was named as one of UK broadsheet The Independent's 20 Extraordinary Women of 2017.
Of all the skills and traits that she has developed through her many challenges, Ali lists overcoming bone deep fear – the kind that reduces your life to literally just breathing (and, sometimes, even that can be a struggle) – as the one that ultimately enabled her to achieve a level of success that most people can only imagine.
Join her on July 26th to hear more about her incredible story, her fightback against fear, and the key strategies she used to get to where she is today.
One of the things she credits as helping her to move forwards, and away from her past challenges, is her ability to set big goals (the kind that make other people quake with fear!) - and then achieve them. From writing a bestselling book, to becoming a motivational speaker - and now travelling whilst running her businesses - Ali knows what she wants, and goes all out to achieve it.
Join her on July 26th to hear more about her extraordinary story, and her top tips for achieving your own big league goals; whatever they may be.

Kate Rees, Individual and Team Coaching, Kate Rees Coaching Limited
As a coach I absolutely love what I do, as I help individuals and teams to break down their barriers and unlock amazing things that they didn't think were possible for them to achieve.
In particular I have a passion for coaching women and empowering them to become inspiring role models, in areas where there may not be so many already visible.
I believe by embracing vulnerability we can be stronger, more resilient people and leaders by building more powerful connections and empathy with others. Also by telling our own raw, real, personal stories we can inspire people as a role model where they maybe haven't found inspiration before.
I will share my own experiences of bringing vulnerability into work and why I believe it is so important.
You will learn:
- How you can use vulnerability to help create high performing teams
- How you can use your vulnerability to be a better leader
- Why being vulnerable can help you be more resilient

Yvette Gavin, Leadership and Executive Presence Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Yvette Gavin Consulting
What does it take to get to the next promotion? Performance, hard work, and sponsors get top talent recognized and promoted. But "leadership potential" isn't enough to move men and women into the executive suite. Leadership roles are given to those who also look and act the part. Research by the Center for Talent Innovation reveals that the top jobs often elude women and professionals of color because they lack "executive presence" (EP), or underestimate its importance. Where presence alone won't get you promoted, its absence will impede your progress.
In this webinar, you will get the guidance needed to acquire and increase your Executive Presence by:
Learning the three heartbeats of Executive Presence
Practicing mindfulness to sustain positive energy and monitor assumptions
Obtaining proven techniques that will help you command a room
Creating a professional brand while remaining authentic

Many people dream of leaving their job to start a business and become their own bss. But it’s not easy leaving the (relative) security of a regular income to follow your dream. Being your own boss can be an attractive pull to the (perceived) greener grass the other side of the P45.
To many employees who are fed-up with their job or their employer it may seem that there are only two steps to becoming your own boss: leave your job and start your own business.
While it is entirely possible to transition from employee to entrepreneur, it’s a bit more complicated than that. And, as anyone who runs a small or micro business will tell you, the grass isn’t always greener on the self-employed side.
So, how do you ensure that running your own business is the right thing for you; and what steps should you take to create a smooth transition from employee to entrepreneur?
Join Business Mentor and Trainer, Kathy Ennis, to explore the 13-steps you will need to take on your road to becoming your own boss.

What does it take to survive and thrive as a female leader in the City of London? Reed Smith and WeAreTheCity launched an open call to senior women in the City to find the answers to those questions you might never normally ask: from considering which ‘persona’ to adopt in the workplace; to making decisions on working part-time or taking a career break and weighing up what impact it might have on your career progression; to looking ahead and wondering, what is life at the top actually like?
The Art of Success is the result of that appeal. More than 100 women shared their experiences to help create a roadmap for those following in their footsteps. In this webinar we’ll take you through those findings and share some of the inspirational advice and words of wisdom.
