1. Beyond Tradition: Expanding our Concept of Leadership
Elizabeth Perry, of Leadership By Example Consulting, will introduce and
expand on non-traditional concepts of leadership, where we see those being
implemented in our world, how we can contribute to the new styles ourselves
and the benefits of defining leadership differently.

With conditions in our world continuously deteriorating we must find new

exploring the possibilities. Exploration includes rethinking authority,
autonomy, and respect for greater individual empowerment.

2. Leading the Inspired Workplace
The life force of corporate performance is personal performance. Yet
research reveals that 1/3 of people hate their work, 1/3 dislike/like their
work depending on the day, and only 1/3 state that they consistently love
how they exchange their time for money. How do symptoms of people who don't
want to be there like absenteeism and presenteeism (at desk but
unproductive) impact loyalty and productivity? This interactive seminar
helps you find yourself, and help others discover deeper meaning and greater
happiness in daily labours beyond payday and TGIF.

You will explore the 4 key principles that build happy and inspired
workplaces where people eagerly self-manage and actively seek ways to move
from perspiration to inspiration. You will learn practical ideas to motivate
yourself and colleagues from within by using the "Inspired Workplace
Checklist." You will take away a reaffirmed passion for your career and a
personal definition of success so you can do what you love to do - create,
grow and serve. Attitude is contagious. This program is one way to make
yours worth catching. Participant's activity booklet included.

*The Perfect Audience*: This program is ideal for human resource
professionals, trainers, middle management, leadership teams and other
professionals who navigate change and are actively committed to improving
the culture of human potential.

Participant Testimonials: "Peter was an excellent facilitator. He included
direct experience and first hand knowledge into his presentation and he was
obviously inspired, informed and believes in what he is doing - his
inspiration is contagious."

"The Love Your Work workshop was a tremendous benefit to me both personally
and professionally. Each session was engrossing and Peter led us to our
personal discoveries with a gentle and focused approach. Much of what we
learned was new to me but resonated deep within me as a truth basic to my
inner self." 

"Perceptions more than actual acts affect my daily living and behaviour. My
goal is to appreciate others more and to know that no one is to blame - my
perceptions must be adjusted. Balance! Though we cannot change the wind we
can adjust our sails."

Client Gratitude: "The theme of your presentation "Love Your Work" was
certainly a big draw, as it was one of our biggest meetings in the history
of the Chapter. From the many comments heard following the session, your
presentation was excellent. Your style captured everyone's interest
throughout and the activities were quite varied, from the paper-pencil
questionnaire, to the washer and string 'experience', to singing a thought
provoking song. Thank you for making the HRANB breakfast meeting very
valuable for our membership." - Rachelle Gagnon, Moncton Chapter President,
Human Resources Association of New Brunswick
