Dr. Michael L. Gaylor
I will provide effective team communication and structure that is important for forging relationships equipping your team with the proper attitudes to develop leaders within. We will work through goal setting and communication exercises that will bring cohesiveness to your group ultimately increasing productivity due to the positive influences each member will have on the group as a whole.
In addition, I will at your request, incorporate your organization’s meeting theme, mission / vision
statement or build on your existing training schedule to best fit the needs of your group.
In a 10-Minute Briefing I would be able to give your employess a taste of any number of topics related to Leadership and Organizational Development. This might include but not be limited to topics such as:
Finding the Leader Within You
Critical Thinking in Leadership
Lunch & Learn
If you are like most organizations, you want to provide your employees with opportunities to grow and develop but you may not have the budget or time to achieve this goal. If this is you.... a journey into the world of Lunch and Learns might be just the ticket to get your employee training and development front and center in your organization.
My approach to Lunch & Learn is to provide a 30-45 minute training or presentation which has one or two defined learning outcomes attached to it. This program would be delivered during the lunch hour but could also be a "breakfast & learn" or be delivered during a staff meeting. In otherwords, any time of the day!
What sets this concept apart from other programs is the accessibility and less formal structure of this approach. As an incentive, the company usually provides lunch. If this is not feasible you can invite employees to bring their own lunch during the session. Lunch and learn is an easy way to develop and motivate employees while creating a workplace of communication, collaboration and learning.
There are a number of key benefits for you and your organization including but not limited to:
Key Benefits of Learn at Lunch Program
1. The sessions make excellent use of time, which is already limited throughout the day.
2. The brief informal setting allows a better channel for understanding and getting the content and important points across.
3. Group training reinforces the overall company culture.
4. Boosts employee morale.
5. Builds and maintains teamwork skills.
Overall, a Lunch & Learn program creates an open channel for information flow and training. Whether the training is targeted towards professional & personal development, skill set training, or even life skills, these sessions can result in a boost in employee motivation and skills needed for a valuable and successful work experience.
If you are planning a conference, weekend retreat, day-long symposium or any other gathering of people for the purpose of personal or professional development, consider the following:
Keynote speakers are integral to any gathering of professionals looking to further themselves with knowledge and networking. A successful keynote speech should inspire and unify an audience with a common purpose.
I find my purpose in delivering Keynote addresses to be:
Delivering a message which is inspirational for the audience and connects the audience with the vision of the conference;
Launching of the conference with clear direction relative to its purposes and goals
Energizes the audience and engages them for the experience ahead
I, as your Keynote Speaker, will seize the opportunity to take your audience on a meaningful journey and move them to take action. In this capacity, I will serve as a temporary leader who will successfully use this temporary hold over the audience to prompt them to commit to something new, whether it’s a new way of thinking or a new way of doing. I have a sufficient force of personality to convey information that might not work in another context. I will bring the "right message" with the "right delivery" to bring your audience to a place of understanding of why change is needed, how to accomplish it, and why it’s the right thing to do.
