Details & Time Frame
The Responsible, Resilient & Risk-Taking Leader: Turning on Your “Passion Power”
This session has been postponed from the February 14 & 15, 2012 event.

In these rapidly moving times, it’s not enough to share information and provide direction; today’s leader needs to maintain mind-body fitness, must genuinely connect, manage both the logical and psychological uncertainty of change, and also inspire. Let Mark Gorkin, aka “The Stress Doc” ™, help you discover and/or expand your “Passion Power” and “TLC Leadership – Inspiring Trust, Laughter and Creative Collaboration” even during the most unpredictable or tumultuous times. Through thought-provoking and compelling presentation along with sharing fun-filled exercises, Gorkin provides energizing tools and techniques for: a) managing stress and preventing burnout by promoting responsibility and resiliency, b) engaging loss and change, c) defusing power struggles by asking “good questions” to ultimately build trust, d) inspiring self and others though “Creative Risk-Taking” and “Passion Power” concepts and skills, e) playfully sharing “confident humility” thereby helping others more readily identify and connect with you, and f) achieving high performance and motivating team productivity and camaraderie.

More specifically, you will discover:

a) The Four Stages of Burnout and two OD strategies for promoting “Individual-Organizational Responsibility and Resiliency”
b) A quick Power Struggle Exercise to lighten a mood and enlighten the room with “Respectful-Real-Responsible-Responsive” communication and trust-building tools and techniques
c) How to promote resiliency and risk-taking capacity with “Four Steps of Creative Risk Taking” and the “Five ‘P’s of “Passion Power” Model: Being “Purposeful-Provocative-Passionate-Playful-Philosophical”
d) The Intimate FOE Exercise: Transforming Fear of Exposure into the Fun of Embarrassment – Why Inspiring Leaders know to “Confront the Intimate FOE”; the Forms Funeral story
