    Become a master of the "now what?" moment! 

    As a leader, you know that complexity, responsibility, change, and uncertainty come with the job. How you manage uncertainty sends a big ripple through your organization. Learning how "to be" when the answer is unclear may be the most important leadership muscle you need to build. 

    Leadership expert Brenda Reynolds equips you with information, strategies, and real-life examples that will grow your confidence and hone your leadership skills. TBD will help you find power and clarity in the midst of any change. 

    Discover how to:

    • Lead others through the challenges of change and emotions of transition

    • Navigate "Transition Fog" and transform uncertainty into opportunity

    • Exercise powerful options for times when you feel powerless

    For more than 20 years as a respected organization consultant and thought leader, Brenda Reynolds has supported clients including McDonald's, Speical Olympics, Sherwin Williams, and the Nemours Pediatric Health System during times of transition. Through her consulting, coaching, training, and speaking, she equips individuals and organizations with easy-to-apply strategies for navigating change, developing leaders, and creating resilient cultures. Brenda is a TEDx and Vistage International speaker whose passion is helping others realize that within every "now what?" is a "why not?!" ready to be unleashed!

    • Online Webinar

    In this webinar, Al Blixt, coach, consultant, author, and expert on innovation and change, will share with us how to lead strategic innovation and change. We will look at the benefits of truly leading innovation and change, not just talking the talk.

    Leading strategic innovation and change provides people with critical knowledge and skills important for success in encouraging and managing innovation. We will learn how to develop effective skills for the managerial and executive levels and what it means to create accelerated adaption for the demands of tomorrow. We will also look at how you change your infrastructure to an innovation hub!

    We will examine the three leadership roles of strategic innovation:

    1. The Leader as a Visionary

    2. The Leader as an Architect

    3. The Leader as a Change Champion

    Finally, we will discuss the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) as a key factor in your ability to be effective as a leader. The four elements of EQ are self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. The good news is that you can learn to improve your proficiency in each of these areas. Al will discuss how to use Emotional Intelligence when you are in the roles of visionary, architect, and change champion. 

    We look forward to your participation in this much-anticipated webinar!
