Inspire your team or organization at conferences or town-halls with speeches/keynotes provided by our executive coaching professionals at PeopleTek Coaching. Speeches range from 1 – 3 hours in duration. Read below about some of the leadership keynote topics we have done in the past.
Leveraging Change For Strategic Advantage
Change takes place in every aspect of the business ecosystem from technical infrastructure to industry forces to new forms of competition and the rate of change is increasing at a staggering rate. Recently, multi-billion dollar companies have been created in less than 3 years. Knowing how to adapt and leverage change to turn it into a strategic advantage is what sets the winning enterprises apart.
Given that every facet of the corporation is affected by change, adroit leadership is paramount to lead teams in the right direction. To be successful, teams must embrace change and know how to adapt in a fashion that is aligned with the organization’s mission and strengths.
Transforming IT Leadership Skills
IT projects present unique people challenges that crop up with every new deployment. Increase the success rate of projects by learning how to overcome the challenges of effective communication across all facets of IT projects.
Frequently, training is focused on the process and the technology but not on the people. The people component is critical to ensuring buy-in from the user community that contributes to a clear set of requirements that will ultimately be accepted. A core challenge in managing IT projects rises from the difference between working with technology and people. Where the technology is very precise and well defined, interactions with people are subject to interpretation and can lack clarity. As a consequence, it is imperative to know how to communicate and listen well to people who have vastly different communication styles. People need to feel involved from start to finish and need to feel that their opinions are heard.
What does it take to find the certainty and confidence to make the tough decisions that you know are right? How often do you choose the choice that has significantly more return when it also is accompanied by various levels of risk? The easy decisions are those where the situation is fairly routine and the risk of a bad outcome is low. The hard decisions come from situations that entail a sizable level of risk for a significant reward.
Learn where courageous decisions emanate from and how to make them with confidence. Determine your vision, mission, and goals in such a way that they are immediately actionable. Passion, accountability, and persistence are the hallmarks of courageous leaders.
Communication and Listening
In a recent survey, top CEOs of leading corporations worldwide agreed that communication is the single most important element to their success and the success of their leadership teams. Yet, how often do disagreements result from simple misunderstandings? And how often do misunderstandings lead to interpersonal conflicts and issues on teams? In school, we focus primarily on how to make a speech but little on how to listen.
Learn the most critical aspects of interpersonal communication. Become aware of the many hidden signals and clues that may be sabotaging your current communications. Listen in a way that goes far beyond simply hearing what is said. Learn the best communication strategies in an array of different settings. Better understand the barriers and challenges involved in communicating with groups comprised of individuals with their own goals and styles of communication.
