LEADING WITH HEARTFULLNESS - THRIVE VS SURVIVE!

  • Mindfulness matters. It has never been more important in our uncertain world.

    The problem is, we are too mind-full! Busyness has become a disease.

    What about the heart?

    We need to take much better care of ourselves, our loved ones and our teammates to thrive vs just survive.

    In today’s uncertain, disrupted, complex and rapidly changing global business environment, we need to be more courageous to connect, collaborate and pay attention to well-being. We have an opportunity to lead with more “heartfulness.” Heartfulness is a term coined by Tim about tapping into and trusting our innate heart-based intelligence and capabilities.

    Tim has the mind of an entrepreneur, the heart of a coach/storyteller and a soul of a performer. He is a rare breed who has been successful both in business and as an artist. He leverages all of his passions and strengths in this interactive tour du force keynote. It can be delivered either virtually, or face to face. He provides insights, a core framework, stories and experiential exercises to inspire and energize the audience.

    As one of Canada’s top thought leaders in workplace culture and storytelling, Tim’s interactive keynote demonstrates how to lead with heart, purpose and leaves his audiences with practical tools to become more heartful at home, work and at play.

LEADING TRANSFORMATIONAL CULTURE CHANGE

  • Most of us are familiar with the famous Peter Drucker saying, “Culture will eat Strategy for breakfast.” This is truer than ever. But leading complex change is tough!

    One of the key problems is, culture is too often top-down vs inclusive.

    If we want to instill high levels of commitment, empowerment, accountability with culture transformations, we need to co-create vs dictate.

    In this experiential and practical keynote, Tim provides useful frameworks, inspiring stories and exercises to share and unpack critical success factors for complex culture change. Transformational change at its core is identity work and an inside-out discovery process that requires, vision, heart and focused commitment. It’s not for the faint of heart and just doesn’t work with old school, didactic leadership.

STORYTELLING TO FUEL INSPIRING LEADERSHIP

  • Business stories are one of a leader’s most powerful tools. Yet very few teams tap into the power of stories.

    Too often communication is data-driven, connecting only with the head. Progressive leaders lead with vision & heart and harness the power of storytelling to engage and inspire their people.

    Tim is a passionate storyteller and a partner in Canada’s leading business storytelling company, Stories Rule! Leveraging his professional acting training, he creates unforgettable experiences using the inspiring leadership stories from the Stories Rule! library to support key conference outcomes and energize his audiences.

    If you have a need to mix it up, be bolder and avoid “same old same old,” connect with Tim and the Stories Rule! team to inject storytelling into your next conference.
