The Transformational Power of You
Create Environments Where Everyone Thrives, Starting With You

A Post Covid employee culture survey, curated by McKinsey, looked at the Top 3 factors driving both attrition and retention in the workforce today. The number one factor driving employee retention was love.

Yep, you read that right. Love.

So, if love is the door standing between your organization now and where you want your organization to be, this makes you the unlock.

The problem? Organizations mistakenly assume managers have an endless capacity to take on personnel and company demands. Or that because they are paid more, they should be able to weather the storms and burdens that come with the job. But leaders are not immune to stress and fatigue. Like anyone, they need reinforcement, appreciation, and balance.

Without these things, no amount of pay will decrease burnout; higher salaries and the pressure that comes with leadership positions make it worse. It's time to step up and help our leaders thrive. Because when leaders don't thrive, their employees, teams, and organizations won't either.*

Participants will take away the following:
* Tools to reduce burnout and come off autopilot
* The ability to embrace uncertainty
* Empowering ways to support individuality
* Get more out of work
* Strengthen the workplace culture and community

Everyday Improviser
Ditch the Script and Fall in Love With Failure

Throughout history, the biggest misconception about improv theater is that improvisers just wing it. And that couldn’t be any further from the truth. It is the preparation and the adoption of a CEO mindset that allows an improviser to think on their feet and make confident decisions.

The formal definition of improv is two or more people collaborating and environments of uncertainty with the common goal of creating a solution. Sound familiar?

The improv mindset will build confidence in individuals, and teams, so they can turn obstacles into opportunities and remain flexible inside of disruption. Fear isn’t something to be afraid of; neither is failure. Both are incredible data streams that illuminate the path toward innovation, confidence, and true collaboration. The problem is that most of us remain in our comfort zones because we are afraid to take risks leaving us with loads of regret.

This interactive keynote is designed to help participants use the experimental ideas from the improv theatre and apply them to the unscripted stage of everyday life.
When you start thinking like a CEO, you will begin to transform the quality of your work and your life. 

Participants will take away the following:
• Better collaboration with internal and external stakeholders
• Tools to feel more confident taking risks
• he ability to stay agile in the ever-changing world and work environment
• A CEO mindset that will elevate performance and get results

Judi’s work is always collaborative and interactive. This keynote builds off the big ideas in Judi’s best-selling book. Fear is My Homeboy®.
