Speaker: Karan Ferrell-Rhodes | CEO & Lead Organizational Strategist, Shockingly Different Leadership

Creating new results as a leader often requires new tools and insights to remain agile and cutting-edge in today’s hyper-competitive business environment. Retraining your brain and stepping into courage will allow you to take the right actions to become a more influential leader in your profession, organization, or industry.

Based on the research for her upcoming book, “Lead at the Top of Your Game”, Karan Ferrell-Rhodes demonstrates how applying one or more of her 7 Principles of Differentiating Value will foster your leadership power in organizations, by accelerating both your ability and the ability of others to become more influential leaders who quickly gain credibility with those that matter.

You will also learn how to avoid common influence traps which negatively impact your leadership effectiveness and leadership brand.  She will outline strategies on how to build trusted relationships, how to avoid sabotaging your “moments of power”, and how small, strategic influence tactics will “wow” others in a way that they are compelled to follow your lead.

As a result of participating in this workshop, you will become a more agile and effective leader, communicator, and team member.  You will also gain key strategies to avoid potential success inhibitors that can unknowingly destroy your professional reputation. This engaging, interactive workshop gives a sounder understanding of the dynamics at play between yourself and others during critical leadership initiatives.

In this workshop you will: 

  • Identify the differentiating characteristics of your own innate strengths
  • Gain insights on the 7 methods elite leaders use to demonstrate irreplaceable influence and impact at work
  • Learn how to give feedback to people in a style they can understand, accept, and ultimately flourish
