Innovating Every Day: Thriving in Today’s Hyper Paced World
The biggest threat to your business may not be new technologies, changing markets or unseen competitors. It’s what you think you know and what made you successful to date. In today’s chaotic markets, unlearning has become just as important as learning. What are you still relying on that no longer applies to today’s business world? What is getting in your way because it used to work? Holly will show you how to uncover the “thought bubbles” floating around in your head that keep you stuck in the past. Then she’ll teach you how to get unstuck, replace the old with the new, and stay focused to get the results you want. It’s not easy. It is possible.
Are You Swift?
Can you move fast with focus and flexibility in today’s rapidly changing environment? Or do you constantly struggle just to keep up? Today’s markets offer almost unlimited opportunities, but only for those companies prepared to take advantage of them. Using ideas, tools, and techniques from her best-selling book, More Than A Minute™ - How to Be An Effective Leader and Manager in Today’sChanging World, Holly reveals counterintuitive insights that market leaders use to stay ahead of the change curve and leave their competition behind. She will show you how to get crystal clear on where you need to go and what you need to do to get there, how to develop the discipline to pause and focuson the right things, and – most important – how to slow down to go fast.
Making Stuff Up (MSU) – We Get Better As We Age
There’s a monster under my bed. One day I’ll be a movie star. This is the stuff we absolutely, positively know to be true as kids, but later find out is not quite accurate. We get even better at MSU as adults. Pause and consider how many things you know to be fact about your colleagues, your customers, your competitors, your boss. Uh oh! Maybe they’re not as accurate as you think they are! Holly will show you how to uncover what you’re making up and how to check it every now and then to make sure that monster under your bed doesn’t bring down your business.
