A More Natural Way to Lead
You’re busy. You are already feeling overloaded. You’d like to build greater capacity in yourself and members of your team, but where would you find the time? In short, you want to take your leadership to the next level, but the question is “How?” You need a fresh and practical blueprint. Jones Loflin says that new approach is built on four words: Grow, Cultivate, Prune, and Harvest. In this innovative and engaging presentation built on the timeless practices of a gardener, Jones equips leaders to identify where change is needed in their daily activities and take productive action. It’s time to get “growing” and harvest something better for your people and your organization.
It's Time to Start Running Your Own Circus
Let’s be honest. Your proverbial plate is already running over with all you have to do. Even worse, your mind is racing with fresh ideas for improvement and growth. If only there was a solution to this dilemma that didn’t involve cloning yourself. Our speaker today says the answer is to run off and join the circus… at least mentally. Using the model of a successful circus, this highly engaging presentation will equip you to better manage your time and energy to explore new opportunities and achieve better results. From being a stronger ringmaster to building a quality “3 ring” lineup, expect to leave this session with a myriad of practical tips to manage your distractions and more fully focus on the present moment. Most importantly, you’ll be ready to run your circus instead of letting the circus run YOU!
Your Days Need To Be Full Of “It!”
How busy are you? In the daily struggle to get it all done, what are you forgetting? Is your mind constantly racing with lists of all the things you could and should be doing? Does your day often feel like you are treading water in an ocean of rushes and deadlines, trying to keep from drowning while handling increasing work demands? If so, it’s time for you to get to IT-your most “Important Thing.” Define IT. Focus on IT. Even get excited about IT. In today’s presentation, Jones Loflin, co-author of Getting to It, provides the necessary tools for you to accomplish the important, handle the urgent, and get rid of the unnecessary. Want to have the room to explore new opportunities and achieve better results? Jones says, “Let’s make IT happen!”
Now We Go Home… So What?
You have packed the bottles of shampoo and lotion from your room, taken one last gaze out your hotel window, and started thinking about how far behind you are at work. But have you “packed” the right strategies to achieve better results when you return home? How will you take all you have gained at this event and implement these ideas into an already overloaded schedule? Jones Loflin says the answer lies in 5 simple words: Who, What, Where, When, and Why.
Connecting Workaholics, Whiners, and Slackers On Matters Of Productivity
While much time has been spent on how to create a diverse workplace, little attention is often given to how work can best get done with so many different backgrounds and perspectives in an organization. Failing to address these differences only serves to limit individual productivity and diminish the ability of diverse teams to work cohesively and get the best results. In this powerfully practical presentation you will discover how to bridge the productivity gap between different populations in the workplace to ensure that both individuals and the organization are accomplishing what is most important.
