Transforming Your Culture: How Do You Show Up?

Evaluating and transforming the culture of our organizations first start with an introspective look at ourselves-- how we show up every day. Everyone is involved with transforming the culture. Every action that we do plants a seed into our organization's garden, but until we learn the art of self-awareness & reflection, we won't be able to grow. In order for trust to be cultivated, there must first be a sense of safety. Trust goes beyond inspiration; it empowers people to endure and rise strong, which leads to connection and peak performance. This high energy & interactive keynote is filled with tools that sharpen everyone's interpersonal skill-set and brings out the leader among them all.

Feedback is not about confrontation, but

about a conversation. Confrontation means arms

are defensive & ready for combat. But a conversation

invites someone on a pathway of mutual growth.

Feedback isn't about shame; it's about connection."

-Michael McGill, Jr.

Building Community:

Communication that Connects



(Customized) One of the biggest challenges with communication is the belief that it has occurred when it's been anything but a fruitful exchange or impartation of information. We live in such a connected society, yet many of us are disconnected from each other and it even shows up in the workplace. Without the tools, information is missed, conflict boils, and expectations aren't met. This leads to a missed opportunity for connection. In this popular and riveting, researched-informed, and eye-opening experience, we'll discuss powerful tools to get people to PAY ATTENTION and practical ways we can build effective partnerships and allies in order to establish desired goals. Everything starts with communication, but do we have the tools to communicate effectively?
