Topics
  • Off Balance

    Getting BEYOND the WORK-LIFE BALANCE MYTH One of the major issues plaguing the corporate world today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; nobody has it! But do people really want it? If you had to choose between balance and satisfaction, which would you choose? People want to live deeply satisfying personal lives and satisfying professional lives – and they want to know that both are possible at the same time. The work-life balance conversation that has dominated the corporate landscape for two decades implies that work and life are separate. In this way, we set work and life against each other, and the thought that follows is that you are either working too much and living too little, or vice versa. But work can and should be a richly rewarding part of a person’s life. In this presentation, Matthew will change the way the audience thinks about the work-life balance question and give them the tools they need to get beyond the balance myth and start building a life that is deeply satisfying – personally and professionally.

  • The Dream Manager

    Once every twenty-five years or so a concept comes along that perfectly identifies a common problem and teaches us a new way. The Dream Manager is that concept. The simple truth is this: the destiny of your organization and the destiny of the people that drive your organization are inseparably linked. The great majority of the people in the workplace today are actively disengaged. To varying extents they don’t feel connected to the work they do, the organizations they work in, or the people they work with. No single factor is affecting morale, efficiency, productivity, sustainable growth and profitability more than this disengagement. The Dream Manager concept provides a revolutionary way of reversing this crippling trend and demonstrates how organizations, large and small, can actively engage their people once again, thus creating a competitive advantage of monumental proportions. In this presentation, based on his most anticipated book yet, The Dream Manager, Matthew explains the powerful connection between employees’ personal dreams and a corporation’s ability to achieve goals and sustain growth. Exploring the characteristics of healthy and unhealthy organizations, he demonstrates that a company cannot expect to attract and retain the employees necessary to guarantee sustainable growth and profitability unless that company can help those same employees move in the direction of their personal dreams and ambitions. Using an array of practical examples, he illustrates the broad application of the Dream Manager concept and demonstrates how, in different areas of our lives, we all take on the role of the Dream Manager. Participants will:
    • Learn how their personal dreams drive them inside and outside the workplace
    • Come to understand how the dreams of their direct reports are impacting their ability to achieve corporate or organizational goals
    • Be taught how to identify the people in their lives – personally and professionally – who they can serve in the Dream Manager role. These people may include everyone from direct reports and customers in the corporate environment to children, spouses and friends in our personal environments.

  • Solving Your Turnover Problem

    Any business leader knows that the costs of employee turnover drain profits. Matthew Kelly offers four steps to solving the turnover dilemma. Business leaders, executives, managers, and small business owners will learn how to address turnover and how to improve employee morale in the process. Turnover is the largest corporate dilemma of the new millennium. It is draining profits, destroying morale and perplexing corporate leaders. Any corporation that can solve a significant turnover problem will gain a phenomenal competitive advantage. For too long we have either ignored the problem or convinced ourselves that it exists because we simply do not pay our employees enough. Throwing money at the turnover problem is not the answer. In this presentation, Matthew will outline and explain the application of the four steps a corporation must take in order to radically reduce turnover. Participants will:
    • Learn how to calculate the real cost of turnover to their team and organization
    • Come to understand how and why a culture of turnover perpetuates turnover, and how turnover is affecting your corporate culture in general
    • Be taught how to implement a four step program to radically reduce turnover across all departments

  • Personal Strategic Planning

    During this presentation, audience members see the benefits of corporate strategic after receiving life-changing ideas for developing a personal strategic plan. With Matthew’s guidance and personal success framework, audience members explore their life in the same way that business leaders explore the health of their business. While most leaders understand the value of strategic planning, few have the discipline to drag themselves away from their day to day responsibilities to attend to this critical process. The next great challenge is convincing the people on their team to turn off their cell phones and step away from their e-mail to participate in the strategic planning process. In this presentation, Matthew takes his audience on a personal odyssey through eight areas of focus – physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, financial, professional, adventure, and legacy. With his unique and original concept of applying the methods and exercises of traditional strategic planning to our personal lives, he demonstrates, once again, that the most powerful way to teach team members about the importance of corporate planning is to teach them the principles of personal strategic planning. Most people spend more time planning their vacations than they do planning their lives. If we cannot convince them of the importance of planning in their own lives, we will never convince them of how important planning is to the organization. Participants will:
    • Learn how to create a strategic plan for their own lives by looking at eight distinct areas of our life experience
    • Come to understand how the absence of a plan often causes us to drift aimlessly at the whim and will of a variety of factors and forces in our lives
    • Be taught how to identify their strengths, weaknesses, goals, and critical success factors in all eight areas
    • Learn how to apply a variety of traditional and innovative strategic planning exercises to their personal life and their professional life

  • Authenticity, Not Authority: A New Paradigm for Leadership

    True leadership takes humility and rigorous honesty. In this presentation, Matthew Kelly helps leaders analyze their leadership style and presents nine practical ways to transform their leadership style. Last year, integrity was the most searched word in Webster’s online dictionary. In an age that is allergic to authority, it is a time for a return to authenticity. Authenticity is integrity-based leadership and does not consist of perfection, but rather the honest admission of strengths and weaknesses and the need for teams to complement those strengths and weaknesses. If employees do not believe that their leader has their best interests at heart, it is impossible to expect that employee to have the organization’s best interests at heart. Participants will:
    • Learn how their personal leadership style is helping or harming their organization’s ability to achieve goals and objectives
    • Come to understand the dangers of inauthentic leadership and the fruits and benefits of a more authentic style
    • Be taught how to identify the shortcomings and successes of their current leadership style and be given nine practical ways to transform the way they lead
    • Discover how to give team members permission to be human without sacrificing organizational goals and objectives
