Creativity is not just for the “creative types”. We are all creative and Jacklyn will teach you strategies to bring innovative ideas into your everyday life.

We will work on thinking outside of the box and learn new ways to solve problems. This type of thinking will help participants tackle complex problems at work and propose fresh ideas in any situation whether that’s on an executive board, a non-profit, an office setting, a consultancy, your own business, etc.

Being creative is like any other skill; the more you practice, the better you get. This session will teach strategies that tap into everyone's creative side and help develop greater confidence. You can bring these techniques into both your work and personal lives.

Courage to Have Candor

Rebecca Ellis, PhD

A few years ago Kim Scott wrote a book titled Radical Candor, and it became a bestseller overnight. In her book, Scott suggests we have to care personally before we can challenge directly and provides a few tips to get us there. This workshop takes it a step further helping you find the courage to have candor, especially if you have grown up with a healthy dose of “Midwest Niceness” as your primary way of operating. You will leave the workshop with enabling tools and confidence to engage in meaningful conversations at work and home.

Do you ever wonder why some people can give an amazing presentation with ease? But for others standing in front of a room of people sharing ideas creates fear and misery. Maybe you don’t mind speaking in front of others, but you don’t achieve the outcomes or engagement you hoped. What if I were to tell you that there is a step-by-step scientific process to set yourself up for success in your next presentation? Giving an outstanding talk seemed like only a dream for me but after years of presentation mistakes, I have been able to compile a process that helps people deliver amazing content. Imagine standing up to give your next presentation with confidence knowing you will get your message across. In this course you will learn how to combine the science of learning with the art of storytelling to deliver a truly memorable presentation by creating content that captivates your audience and transforming your slides to take your presentation from average to awesome.
