Making A Difference™ is a far-reaching program giving everyone in your organization the skills to grow themselves and their people. People who make a difference have the capacity not just to envision something in an abstract, daydreaming, fantasizing kind of way, but they have the capacity and drive to actually go out and do it. Fewer than half of today’s employees believe that their companies deserve their loyalty. Unfortunately, leaders too often confuse profits with purpose and disregard the principles that drive people. This program reveals the process for developing exceptional leaders and retaining great employees. Employees of great companies see themselves as being part of a greater mission, something that goes beyond revenue and profits. You have to focus on having compassion and a positive attitude. While we don’t know what challenges face the people we meet every day, we do have the power to bring someone hope, if only for a moment. And as this program expounds, that hope can multiply a thousand times.
This leadership program is a positive look at what is necessary to make a difference and is a great reminder that Monday isn’t designed to add depression to an otherwise happy week. Making a difference is about conscious choices that do, and will, impact the lives of people we encounter. It is about leaders in an organization who behave in such a manner that is congruent with the behavior they expect from their employees. It is about modeling the behavior you desire for the rest of the company. Your job gives you authority. Your behavior earns you respect.
Making A Difference™ illustrates why great leaders are so valued and regarded as “one in a million.” This unrivalled session will help you outline what should drive you, fuel you, and define you as a leader.
