Leadership CoP: Building Belonging Within Ourselves and Our Organizations

***This meeting is now a webinar.  Webinar details have been shared with registered attendees.*** 

About the Speaker:

Wendy Gates Corbett, is recognized as a leader in the Association of Talent Development (ATD) and in the talent development field who speaks around the world on the power of visuals, remaining relevant, and the power of belonging. She is in her 10th year serving on her local ATD chapter board (Research Triangle Area, NC), she recently served on the International Board of Directors for ATD. Wendy is a charter member of the Presentation Guild, and a member of the National Speakers Association. She is the owner of Refresher Training, LLC, a company that works with professional athletes, speakers and leaders helping them speak with impact and influence.

Abstract:

Work cultures that don’t truly include all employees create environments where time is wasted, employees are disengaged, and they don’t care about their work. Organizations with inclusive cultures reap the benefits of employees who are fully engaged, care about their work, and love what they do. Belonging is a natural need, but it can become crippling and toxic. At work, not being ourselves can severely limit our career paths and our professional growth. Outside of work, when we’re not our own true selves, we deprive ourselves and others of true connection. In this program, talent development leader Wendy Gates Corbett shares practical strategies we can use to remind ourselves, each other, and the team members we work with that we all belong. These simple strategies can be employed at work and outside the office to empower ourselves and others in leading in ways that connect, respect, and protect.

In this experiential program, you will learn how to:

  • Connect: with yourself and with others in ways that foster true connection
  • Respect: yourself and others in ways that demonstrate that they (and you) are valued and respected
  • Protect: yourself and others by fostering work cultures that protect workers’ (and your own) humanity

About the Session:

Motivation is a catalyst for action, marked with enthusiasm and interest. The mainspring of motivation is the belief that better, more rewarding, and greater achievement is possible. It is that driving force that motivational leaders tap into when they inspire others to perform at their best. Motivational leaders foster a bias for action and connectedness among those on their team or in their organization.

Famous motivators include Apple’s founder Steve Jobs, and five-time championship winning NFL coach, Vince Lombardi. And then there’s the rest of us. Perhaps not so famous and feeling not so motivational in our roles as program and project managers, especially in an environment of remote work and social distancing.

The good news is, you can renew your own motivation, and bring this knowledge and energy to your project teams and organization.

Learning Outcomes

  • the meaning of motivation and its importance for leadership success
  • key characteristics and actions of motivational leaders
  • how to lead people effectively to perform and achieve
