During Times of Uncertainty, Inspirational Leaders Stay Centered

Kim founded her company. THriv, LLC to mentor, coach, teach, and train human resource professionals and leaders for success.

The future is full of uncertainty!  For organizations to survive in an ever-changing world, leaders must stay centered and focused on aspects of the organization that should remain constant such as values.

In this highly interactive session, we will focus on how to inspire our teams to move the organization forward during tumultuous times while staying true to its values.

1. Participants will identify the differences between an inspirational leader and motivational
leader, and how they can be a more inspirational leader.
2. Participants will discuss how to stay true to organizational values during times of change.
3. Participants will identify the quality of centeredness and how exhibiting this quality gives clarity and keeps everyone focused.
