Leading Great Teams

Joel's 5 Levels of Leadership 

"Today’s teams are different from the teams of the past: They’re far more diverse, dispersed, digital, and dynamic (with frequent changes in membership). But while teams face new hurdles, their success still hinges on a core set of fundamentals for group collaboration." - Harvard Business Review

Whether you have inherited a group of committed managers or you are in the process of developing your group, every leader needs to understand HOW TO LEAD A GREAT TEAM.

In his book GOOD TO GREAT, Jim Collin explains that “good is the enemy of great” and the reason we don’t have great teams is in large part due to the fact that we have so many good teams.

Leading great teams requires:

  • the courage to 'act as if'

  • the confidence to trust your people

  • the humility to ask for feedback

  • the conviction to lead with love

Learn all this and so much more as Joel shares his 5 Levels Of Leadership and opens a new door to what it means to be great in 2020.

Mental Fitness

Stress, is the global health epidemic of the 21st century.

We could not be more radical in our approach to resourcing our people to become MENTALLY FIT

40% of workers reported their job was very or extremely stressful.

25% view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives.

 

75% of employees believe that workers have more on-the-job stress than a generation ago. 

- HBR

Competing demands, value conflicts, an addiction to zoning out, too much work, not enough time & infinite distractions, as the world keeps speeding up. When overwhelm becomes the norm, life can be tough.  

Positive psychologist Shawn Achor believes that 90% of our happiness is tied up inside how we INTERPRET our life. With 1 in 5 of us suffering from some form of mental illness, being mentally fit and learning how to interpret life’s challenges better, is critical.

 

There are 3 key stages of mental awareness we must understand to better support ourselves and others:

 1. Mental Sickness

 2. Mental Wellness

 3. Mental Fitness

Feeling great upstairs is about valuing mindset, messaging and movement.

 

This keynote leaves your audience fired up to take responsibility for their work, their life and their health.

Participants of this keynote will learn

  • How to spot mental sickness

  • How to support others with signs

  • To identify mental wellness markers

  • To understand mental fitness baseline tactics, mid term goals and long term strategy

All participants will be gifted Joel’s 9 steps to “higher mental fitness” cheat sheet to reinforce key messages and support participants at home and at work.

The best time to truly invest into your people’s greatest asset was yesterday, the next best time is now.

YOUR PEOPLE: MENTALLY FIT

Extraordinary Leadership

Perspective & Excellence

The possibilities are endless, once we decide to act, and not react

"A leader is the one, who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way" JCM

Leaders, it is time to take control, own the uncertainty and cast vision for tomorrow!

 

Every leader has 3 common responses to adversity

  1. Freeze

  2. Fight or Flea 

  3. Adapt

 

Extraordinary Leadership exists in the domain of adaptive capabilities. And to get there fast, every leader simply must have their very own LEADERSHIP PHILOSOPHY

 

Learn how to:

  • Focus on the vital few

  • Lead change by example

  • Model excellence from the ground up

  • Develop the attitude no author has written a book on

  • Actually create your own Leadership Philosophy

 

Participants of this keynote will understand the '7 Foundations' for building your very own unique EXTRAORDINARY LEADERSHIP PHILOSOPHY

The purpose of developing a personal Leadership Philosophy is to accelerate decision making, maximize collaboration and provide any leader with the mental space to show up fully expressed. 

Better Conversations

Great teams have better conversations.

"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place".

 

George Bernard Shaw

"According to statistics: 

 

57% of employees report not being given clear directions and...

 

69% of managers are not comfortable communicating 

with their employees in general"

 

- Harvard Business Review

What is our access point to a better, brighter, more abundant and meaningful tomorrow? 

 

Communication!

 

The more effective we are at communicating, the richer & deeper our conversations become. If connection & belonging are important to human beings (see Maslow's hierarchy of human needs), how we communicate becomes critical.

Ultimately, it is the conversations we have, and the subsequent trust that we build, that allows us to collaborate cohesively and connect with a true sense of belonging. 

 

Joel will share….. 

  • The difference between awkward & connected conversations

  • The 5 filters for building trust fast

  • The one word that changes everything

  • The one tactic that latest research reveals, every high performing team executes

 

Because of our loyal commitment to our work-place, we all expect a better work-life experience. Once we understand & can implement the simple tactics of having better conversations, we really stand to improve every aspect of our lives

Break Out Activity

When the time frame allows Joel can add a 30min break out session to any 45 or 60min keynote (depend on participant numbers) to:

  • Elevate group energy

  • Bring everyone together

  • Increase support & connection 

  • Test out & reinforce learnings with a physical challenge

  • Create an indescribable unrepeatable unique moment to inspire your entire organisation

This was a unique and powerful experience. A real a highlight of the day.
