A recent IBM poll of fifteen hundred CEOs identified creativity as the top “leadership competency” of the future. Creativity and innovation are the “secret sauce” for success and now more than ever are crucial to re-imagine the future and pioneer what’s next for our businesses.

But, big questions like How do I become more innovative? How do I attract and empower innovative people? How can I come up with cutting-edge ideas while managing the status-quo? leave us feeling disoriented in the uncertainty of our current landscape.

In this Uplift Kitsap, we will consider how 4 Keystone Habits can drastically reframe how we think, operate, and boost our bottom line.

This session is for any leader looking to

  • sharpen their company’s competitive edge
  • develop the skills to turn ideas into impact
  • strengthen their team’s innovative dexterity
  • attract and empower top innovative talent
  • manage and lead teams to creative brilliance

Anyone else feel like life is a little unpredictable right now? How is anyone supposed to lead in such uncertain and anxious times? As a society, we are standing on the edge of uncharted territory. Our world needs leaders who are able to not only navigate uncertainty but lead courageously into places we have never been before. Let’s talk about what it takes to be an adaptive leader – a leader who faces anxious times with a spirit of adventure – and who discovers a surprising world along the way.

Difficult conversations often arise when we make assumptions before we even talk to the other person. This can lead to frustration, avoidance, intimidation, toxicity in relationships, and so much more. In this session, Shannon Bruce, Certified Conversational Intelligence® Coach, will take the insight from our May 19 session on Mastering Fear using the Conversational Dashboard and show how our assumptions impact our ability to relate to others while diminishing our capabilities to work well together. Using the Ladder of Conclusion tool, you will learn how to check your assumptions and elevate the quality of your conversations, decreasing stress and improving your relationships with yourself and others.

During this online session, Shannon Bruce will talk about the foundation of Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ) using the Conversational Dashboard. This will help to set context for what’s happening in and around us when we are in fear/distrust versus calm/trust. This approach is about applying the concepts of C-IQ to our “inner conversation” to help us navigate uncertainty using our whole brain, not just being run by our amygdala.

Fear is useful. It keeps us safe. We don’t want to be fearless, we want to be brave. Being brave is knowing it’s hard and uncomfortable; it’s being afraid and doing it anyway. Draw on the strength and power of courage in the face of fear.

Key takeaways

  • Recognize when fear is helpful and when it is holding us back
  • Take steps to be afraid and do it anyway
