Resilience: It's Not About Bouncing Back

10 Things Great Leaders Know But Won’t Tell You

Rethinking Leadership: Driving Performance in a Smaller, Tougher World


It's Not About Bouncing Back

Organizations and their leaders are asked to react to major set-backs every day. Pressure for results in the face of changing markets, restructuring, shrinking budgets, and blending cultures require skills to tackle tough situations, process quickly and come back stronger.

Resilience is arguably the number one requirement for sustainable leadership today. Why aren’t we talking about it?

In this keynote, Jennifer shares personal and business experience and profound lessons on resilience, from building a successful business in a deep recession, years on the road restructuring companies, a health crisis that knocked her off the podium as a nationally ranked athlete, and processing the trauma of diving out of a burning vehicle, barely escaping alive.  Jennifer’s cutting-edge resilience model, and her own brand of wisdom and good sense presented in an edgy, paradigm shifting session help your team learn how they can build a framework to increase individual and organizational resilience long before it’s needed.

This session enables participants to understand:

The importance of leadership agility: being able to pivot well when things change

How the wrong choices make it harder to rebound after adversity

How removing the “leadership” mask and finding authenticity helps you survive repetitive disruption

How getting clear on your purpose and definition of success improves the choices you make under stress

How to powerfully cultivate more resilience in your life and work

10 Things Great Leaders Know
But Won’t Tell You

In an age of disruption and interruption, leaders today are charting new territory. Margins are slim and the margin for error is even slimmer, especially for leaders thrust into new and ambiguous situations on a daily basis. To thrive, leaders need to create the alignment required to drive breakthrough performance through others.

Drawing on Jennifer’s personal arsenal of stories from working with CEOs and leaders of all levels for more than 20 years, this keynote challenges conventional wisdom on leadership and presents 10 no-nonsense ideas that great leaders know, but wouldn’t think to tell you. Your audience will begin to see that in leadership, common sense isn’t all that common. We’ll enjoy laughing at the lighter side as we validate our own observations in a new light.

This session enables participants to understand:

They likely control more than they think they do, and how they can use that to shape your environment

How to demonstrate visible leadership quickly

Strategies for getting the best out of the people they lead

How to find greater fulfillment in their work as they make leadership their ‘real’ job

Rethinking Leadership

Driving Performance in a
Smaller, Tougher World

Two pervasive issues facing business today require leaders at all levels to think differently about leadership: doing more with less and working across cultures. To maintain their edge in today’s market, leaders must be exceedingly competent at leading lasting and sustainable change, driving performance through others, maximizing results of a global workforce and managing talent in ways they never have before. Missed opportunity because leaders and teams aren’t aligned simply isn't acceptable. The cost of failed change or stagnating C players is too high when every dollar counts.

This high energy, interactive session will challenge your thinking and provide pragmatic tools you can use immediately to do more with less and align diverse stakeholders. All participants in this talk will also receive a free toolkit with three powerful leadership frameworks to help clarify opportunities and roadblocks, create alignment and enable sustainable change.

This session enables participants to understand:

The difference between adaptive and technical challenges to resolve complex business problems

How to think differently about leadership to do more with less and engage diverse and/or virtual stakeholders

Three leadership priorities that have emerged and are critical to success in today’s market
