SHELLEY D. SMITH'S SPEECH TOPICS
Keynote or Workshop #1
Culture by Design vs Living: Today’s Leadership
Knowing where you are allows you to truly moving forward. But that takes courage as a leader. Knowing your real culture, what you are living vs what was supposedly designed, are often very different. In this keynote you can hit reset by assessing your current state to move into your desired state and make it come to life. Workplace culture shouldn’t happen by accident.
Keynote or Workshop #2
Workplace Culture: HOW we do, WHAT we do, WHEN we work together
The opportunity to deliberately show up as a courageous leader in today’s world with purpose and clarity around how and what we do, when we work together doesn’t seem to be an easy task. Aligning the person to the needs of the role and the role to the team and the services/product provided is non-negotiable. All of this takes actions that create intentional shifts in culture… in the literal pockets of time leaders can find each day. As a corporate culture expert, I have stood beside thousands of corporate leaders as they dared to shift their corporate culture into something that not only made them proud, but also more profitable, more peaceful, and more attractive to potential employees and / or shareholders.
Keynote or Workshop #3
The Anatomy of Workplace Culture: The space between fully engaged and disengaged
While most leaders understand their most reliable competitive advantage comes from their people, few know how to get their teams “all in”—convincing employees to buy into the strategy they’ve put forward. If a culture is clear, positive, and strong, then people will believe what they do matters and that they can make a difference. If a culture is dysfunctional—chaotic, combative or indifferent—employees will spend more time thinking about why the people sitting next to them should be fired than getting fired up themselves. What are your culture norms; where is the playbook of what right looks like, feels like, sounds like? How do we get there…1% at a time but deliberately – not accidentally.
