  • Winning Communications

    Rick DeBruhl

    Racing is a business. And like any business its success is dependent on people. It's not enough to have the greatest driver, if the team backing them up isn't working together. And even that isn't enough if they aren't communicating. MORE >

    Of course, we all know that. We simply need to be reminded. And it needs to be done in a way that grabs the attention of the people in your organization. A compelling story that shows what can be accomplished when communication is a part of the plan.

    This presentation isn't about racing. It's about winning.

    Alexander Rossi's victory in the 100th running of the Indy 500 was an amazing achievement. Here was a rookie who had never driven in this race, beating drivers and teams with decades of experience. So how did he do it? Two words: communications and teamwork. Telling that story is more than just entertaining, it's an amazing lesson in how any business can find a victory.

    Rick DeBruhl is a lifelong communicator. With a career that started in radio and now finds him covering auto racing for ESPN, he's learned the art of storytelling. Rick has a Master's degree in Media Management and is also the chief communications officer for a statewide organization. He understands communication theory and how it can make or break an organization.

    Winning Communications will help explain:

    * The importance of the communications culture
    * Critical communications needed during innovation and changing strategy
    * Communicating at the right speed

  • What are KPIs and How Do I Track Them in My Business?

    Corwin Smith, Entrepreneur / Scaling Up Coach, Transcend Growth Parnters

    Let's face it, there's no shortage of great advice out there but little can be tied to real performance. I was once a CEO who managed my company from "gut" instinct. The problem is my "gut" didn't scale to my managers and it left frustrated with lack luster results. Even worse, my employees were relying on me to 'read the tea leaves' and predict the future. Before I learned how to properly develop and track KPIs I was shooting in the dark. MORE >

  • Grace in Gravity: Cultivating Trust in Uncertain Times

    Cyd West, Executive Director, World Academy for the Future of Women

    Cyd West, a specialist in business and linguistics, presents ways to enhance our communication skills that are pertinent to every leader whose workforce feels affected by recent events and headlines.

    Today’s headlines: MORE >

    • Layoffs have decimated Cotech. Many of the remaining workers are immobilized by fear of losing their jobs through more layoffs or even company closure. John Powers, the CEO, thinks the situation can be turned around but he cannot make it with the current levels of productivity.

    • Employees of Medico have accepted a 1% cost of living increase in lieu of performance increases (usually between 4-6%) in order to protect their jobs during a downturn in the market. They soon find out the CEO of Medico was awarded a $6 million dollar bonus from the Board of Directors.

    These events occur every day and are highly publicized. They affect the culture in companies across the world. Uncertainty is airborne and contagious in the workplace. The costs of high turnover and productivity loss from poor morale are mounting.

    Cyd covers:

    • the “controllable” causes of uncertainty.
    • what employees want from their leaders during difficult times.
    • how a leader’s communication and behavior affect employee’s anxiety levels.
    • methods to solicit feedback and evaluate how our communication is perceived.

    Awareness of how our words and actions are interpreted during stressful times allows us to manage perceptions of our own reputation as well as the commitment of an organization to it’s workers, customers and partners. Opportunities abound to enhance these relationships through a realistic self-assessment and strategic communication.

    Recent research has unveiled a wealth of information for leaders who seek to motivate and inspire. Furthermore, there is a direct correlation to the bottom line. The common denominator in these findings is authentic and honest communication from successful leaders – as well as adopting the behaviors to support their messages.
