leading a hybrid team

  • We are entering a new era in how we work with hybrid teams. This program brings leading-edge thinking to help you cultivate a high-performance culture. We’ll build upon well-established teaming principles while addressing current challenges including retention and onboarding.

    In this talk, Ann shares practical strategies you can use to help your modern team thrive. She teaches about ensuring all team members have access to the same opportunities (wherever they work), expanding your influence to resolve issues and grow healthy relationships, encouraging accountability and engagement, identifying metrics to hold our teams accountable, and high-performance leadership habits.

secrets of high-performance hybrid teams

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Hybrid teams have an incredible opportunity to be more deliberate and proactive about how we collaborate. Building on long-standing teaming principles, this program is focused on how you can thrive, as an individual and team member, regardless of where you work. You’ll learn how to strengthen connections, lean into autonomy, and find more meaning in your work. Ultimately, you’ll learn how to make the most of the modern working style: hybrid work.

    Ann will share a practical framework and strategies you can use to build trust and strengthen team collaboration, leverage the power of optimism and understand why it’s vital to build a high-performance team culture, understand how purpose gives us meaning, and learn strategies to help our teams ground everything they do in a solid sense of purpose.

lean into fearless feedback

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Imagine, after a big presentation, your boss asks, “Can I give you some feedback?” Be honest: what feelings immediately come to mind? Joy and gratitude? Or anxiety and despair? Sadly, fear wins out for most people. Feedback is something we fear. But what if we could reframe feedback? What if we could champion this critical development tool to fast-track results on our teams and across our organization? Thankfully, this is possible.

discover your thrive mindset

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Mindset is powerful. Perhaps more powerful than any of us can imagine. Mindset is what allows us to thrive both at work and in life. And the world’s most successful and content people embrace this powerful approach in everything they do. Learn how these elite performers build their resilience, grow at exponential rates and use purpose as their north star. Ann will share how you can use the power of resilience and mindset to transform your life.

prioritize your wellbeing

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Wellbeing is an essential foundation. Yet many people struggle to prioritize key behaviors such as sleep, exercise, and eating well. Fostering healthy relationships, practicing gratitude, and relaxation are also crucial for restoring ourselves physically and mentally. Fortunately, the latest science in habits can help us strengthen our wellbeing. We know why wellbeing is important. It’s time we focus on how to prioritize the activities that matter most.

how to overcome the prioritization crisis

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Prioritizing is a brilliant theory. It holds great promise of enabling us to supercharge our progress on our most essential work and achieve incredible goals. Yet despite how amazing prioritization is, in theory, it isn’t working. We are stretched thin and feel out of control. Our backlog grows bigger by the day. We are running faster than ever before and it is still harder and harder to stay on top of everything. We are hitting a prioritization crisis. Clearly, we need a better approach.

reclaim the power of focus in a distracted world

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • In today’s “always connected” society, we are losing the art of focus. But focus is a critical way to get big things done. Learn how multi-tasking negatively impacts us in three unfortunate ways. In a nod to the past, learn how to reclaim your focus, manage interruptions and do more of your most essential work. Your legacy depends on this.


habits - how to make the changes you want

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • We know productivity tools, collaboration skills, and mindset practices are essential to our success. Often, we know what we need to do, but we don’t always succeed in making our habits stick. We were taught discipline is the key to being successful. But discipline is a depleting and unreliable resource. Willpower is also unreliable. Thankfully, building habits around our essential work is the most effective and sustainable way to drive results. Learn how to make your key habits stick, so you can perform at your best.

transforming into an email warrior

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Email. This started as a time-saving, breakthrough technology but has spiraled into a time-sabotaging vortex. Email has become a chore unto itself.

We are all capable of transforming into Email Warriors, in less time than you may think. Learn a practical and attainable formula to take back control over your inbox and gain peace of mind.
