Leading Transformation: Perspective, Perception, Positioning and Performance


This session is designed for Human Resources leaders and professionals who contribute to their organization’s strategic planning process and for anyone looking to build and sustain performance-based and strategic relationships with key individuals and outside organizations that can further the mission and business of the organization.  Every successful organization will transform to remain relevant and preserve its existence.  As a strategy leader, your impact is evident from the first encounter with those you serve to the legacy you leave beyond your presence. What is different about the environment because you are there?


The interactive experience and lively dialogue in this session challenges you to think differently about your leadership value and enhance your performance through practical, proven and powerful actions. Moving you away from familiarity and into an often uncomfortable state, the first step toward transformation begins with a decision – do I resist it, adapt to it or lead it? Your effectiveness is shaped by four key factors:


Perspective—how you view yourself and the value you deliver;

Perception— how others see you and what you offer;

Positioning—intentional action taken to strengthen your image;

Performance—consistently executing with excellence that has an impact.


Session objectives:


Clarify leadership perceptions, value and impact;

Benchmark your leadership brand strength and marry it your organization’s key

success measures;

Learn how to develop key relationships to support transformation and growth;

Create a road map for leadership effectiveness priorities that will drive the organization’s objectives & goals; and

Commit to a plan to achieve top priorities that are important to you and the CSuite.  The next step on this journey depends on the person who has the greatest responsibility for making high impact change a reality — YOU!
