Creating a Culture that Empowers Performance: Engage, Enable & Empower Your Team

We keep going back to the solutions of the past hoping they will continue to yield results in the complexity of the present. Again and again we train our teams in the latest tips and techniques only to re-learn that performance isn’t a paint-by-numbers game. There simply isn’t a playbook comprehensive enough to match every circumstance up ahead. What we need is a self-generating capacity and willingness for people to invent in the moment, speak up, get heard, build trust, take effective action and really be of impact. They’ve got to own it and be at the source of it themselves – and that’s exactly what I teach them to do.


Mining Diversity to Deliver Innovation: How to Create a Highly Effective Workforce

The war for talent is here to stay. And that talent will be increasingly diverse. What will it take to mine an irreversibly complex demographic to deliver game changing innovation and performance?

Well, we can’t keep doing more of the same and expect different results. The traditional business case for diversity is weak. Just having more diverse people at the table isn’t delivering enough results. In fact, in many cases, it has introduced a complexity that most organizations are ill-equipped to handle.

As we watch the growing exodus of women and people of color from corporate America, we keep learning a tough lesson –- that no amount of prescribed behavior or mandated actions will leave people feeling honored, valued or included. Yet, without mastery here, companies and organizations take on an unnecessary risk to generating innovation and delivering performance.


From the Barrio to the Boardroom: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage

An expert in navigating uncertainty, I was raised in the nation’s poorest congressional district, where gangs ruled the street corners and my biggest dream was about having heat and hot water. Along the way I developed strategies for success that formed a bridge from tough inner-city beginnings to award-winning entrepreneur and advisor to Fortune 500 companies.

Using a powerful narrative, sprinkled with humor and personal and professional victories, I intentionally move the audience through specific use-now strategies that will help them make results happen. I celebrate our Latino Heritage and use it to challenge their assumptions about what is possible.
