“People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.” - Former First Lady Michelle Obama

The challenging Alberta economy in recent years has placed Calgary business leaders in a whirlwind of change. Downsizing, reorganizing, and redesigning our organizations is now the norm. Surviving change has become today’s “business as usual”. Whether you are laying people off, frenetically repositioning yourself in the marketplace, or growing your business, managing change is the new reality.

While building and sustaining trust is pivotal to leadership at any time, the challenge to do so is compounded when workload is increased, resources are decreased, and job security is eliminated. In the midst of burnout, depletion, and ever-increasing mental health challenges, by all accounts we aren’t faring well under the pressure. Even if we’re coping well now we have to ask if our response to current conditions is sustainable.

Take this opportunity to step back and gain a new perspective on building trust in an uncertain economy from one of Canada’s most respected voices on authentic leadership, organizational culture, and accountability. Leave this thought-provoking, inspiring, and engaging session with practical insights and strategies as well as stimulating discussions with your colleagues on building trust through the power of authenticity.

  1. Understand what it means to be authentic and how authenticity is your most powerful resource for building an engaged workforce in times of uncertainty and stress
  2. Discover why taking care of your people is your number one priority – and opportunity - amidst instability
  3. Learn practical ways to build trust and bring humanity – and subsequently commitment and accountability - back into your workplace

Attendees will have a chance to WIN a seat to The Other Everest by David Irvine, an intensive and inspirational advanced leadership development retreat in Banff (valued at $1950)! Information on The Other Everest can be
