Webinar - Strategies to Finish the Year Strong

Do you find yourself saying "let's just get to the end of the year?"  You are not alone.  Most leaders just want to keep to get through all the deadlines, projects and reports so they can have a break.

The most effective leaders, however, see the end of the year as an opportunity to ramp up their performance, engagement and overall results.  They understand how to maximize all the great work that has been done to this point and finish strong in preparation for the upcoming year.

By applying principles from neuroscience, you’ll gain insights and tools to wrap up 2017 powerfully.  That way, you won’t jeopardize any of your team’s or organization’s performance or engagement from the year.

In this action-oriented webinar, you’ll receive:

  • Five key strategies to finish the year strong that most leaders overlook
  • Our Strong Finish Coaching Tool to guide conversations with your team about results
  • Fast neuroscience "hacks" that can help keep you and your team delivering solid results

The way you finish the year directly impacts your effectiveness as a leader this year and into next year.  It’s essential to have a clear strategy and a new set of tools to effectively wrap up what’s been done and prepare well for what’s coming.

Join us for this informative, interactive webinar to ensure you’re finishing your year strong!

Webinar - Use Neuroscience to Improve Your End-of-the-Year Performance Conversations

Let's admit it, the performance evaluation process can be a challenging one for leaders, HR and employees.  In a recent study conducted by the Society of Human Resource Management, only 2% of the organizations surveyed believed that they were effective in conducting performance evaluations.

You know that these difficulties are often due to the processes, communication techniques and overall systems that support performance management.  But what you may not know, is that it can also be attributed to how leaders think about and approach performance evaluations.

In this webinar you’ll learn a new way to think about and approach performance management.  Neuroscience helps us understand why you as a leader may be challenged by the more difficult conversations around performance and why many leaders resist doing performance evaluations.

In this fast-paced webinar, you will learn:

  • How neuroscience can help you have better, more productive performance conversations
  • Five key strategies to bring into your next conversation to improve the outcome and accelerate results
  • Steps to improve the performance conversations across your team and organization

You’ll have an opportunity to use neuroscience principles to examine your own process for managing performance so you can create a different experience of it as you wrap up the year.

Join Athena Williams, CEO of Uplevel Studio, for this informative, interactive webinar to make sure your performance evaluation conversations are as effective as possible!

Webinar - Become a More Strategic Leader Using Neuroscience

At this time of the year most companies are engaged in their strategic planning process and often find it challenging - dealing with an unclear process, unsolvable problems, and difficult personalities.  

At Uplevel Studio, we believe these things are the result of people not being strategic enough.

According to the Center for Creative Leadership, 86% of executives surveyed indicated that strategic planning and thinking are critical skills for leaders yet the majority reported it being a skill gap for their organizations.

There are several key strategies that quickly increase your ability to be more strategic.  Drawing on neuroscience, optimal performance coaching and design-thinking, this webinar will answer the following questions:

  • How do you know if you are “strategic enough” in your leadership?
  • Are there “strategic blinders” that exist for you and/or your team?
  • What new strategies can you use to expand your vision and create more robust strategic thinking and planning?

Learn how the latest applied research can benefit you, your team and your organization during this critical time of year as you plan your strategy for 2018 and beyond.

Join Athena Williams, CEO of Uplevel Studio, for this informative, interactive webinar and learn how to become a more strategic leader!
