Tommy Richardson, Rainmakers Director of Training and Development, features a new discussion topic at each event, which addresses people, processes, leadership, and relevant general business topics. This is your opportunity to build relationships while gaining insights into key topics that affect you and your business. This roundtable is intended for Business Leaders.
July Topic: Connection: What people who excel at connecting do differently than those that don’t
The difference between power and force is all about how we are able to connect with others. Guest speaker, Karen Valencic, will share on:
- Mastering the Art of Conflict
- The Power to Get It Done with Grace
- Innovation at the Intersection of Change and Conflict
- The Science of Influence
As a best-selling author, speaker, martial arts black belt, and engineer, I am passionate about revealing the keys of conflict to leaders so they can fast-track innovation and enhance team performance through the turbulence of change.
I know the best ideas in business all too often are lost in the maze of poorly handled disagreements. Therefore, the ability to innovate with conflict is an essential skill for leading-edge businesses and people!
Spiral Impact, my time-tested method, combines physics with martial art concepts for an eye-opening take on the way we engage with each other and with life circumstances.
I’ve consulted, trained, and coached inside organizations for 20+ years, focusing on propelling leaders and their teams ahead of the curve in performance and innovation.
