The Power of Personal Vision

Michelangelo was once asked how it was that he created a magnificent angel from a huge slab of marble and his response was, "It's really quite easy. I simply have a vision and I just chip away at anything that isn't angel. In order to live the life you have always imagined, you must have a vision and be willing to chip away at the obstacles that are preventing you from achieving your goals.

In this interactive and thought provoking session, you will develop practical skills that will inspire you to be the best you can possibly be. You will learn the five key steps for manifesting your vision, the importance of a positive self-image, overcoming self-imposed limitations, the power of visualization and how to integrate your values and priorities into your life. At the outcome of the program, you will have the tools and insights that will take you to the next level, both personally and professionally.

Leading from the Heart:
The Power of Compassion and Respect

Since the beginning of time, many companies have had a clearly defined vision. A vision that is supposed to foster loyalty, inspire, motivate and engage. Over time, however, their employees stop believing in it and work becomes nothing but a pay cheque.  Why, we may ask does that happen? Well we believe it's because many of the leaders within the company fail to recognize the power of respect and compassion and the vital role it plays in engaging the hearts and minds of those they lead.

Today, more than ever, we need leaders who care. We need leaders who understand the meaning of respect and the subtleties of respect.  True leaders who realize in the words of Jackie Robinson, "that a life is not important except in the impact it has on other people's lives."  In this insightful and thought-provoking session, participants learn practical skills and insights that they can use immediately to keep their people focused, engaged and highly productive. In turn, they discover how respect and compassion will unleash their potential and in turn, create a culture of genuine leaders.
