Collaborate Across Generations

business meetingWe can’t repair all of the divisions in our society right now, but we can get generations to work together.  Imagine a workplace where your Baby Boomers and Millennials cross-mentored each other, shared information, and were happy to work together.  This workshop takes you on a virtual spaceship to travel through time to understand how other generations grew up and formed different values, attitudes, and behaviors, so you can interact with curiosity, understanding, and empathy.  Learn more here.

Hire Joanie to bring your team from dysfunction to well-functioning…

diverse meetingThe business simulation is a challenging, fun, and competitive team-building game where teams run a fictitious company using an online simulation that is facilitated by an expert in leadership and team development.  The teams compete for about 2 to 2-1/2 hours, through a number of simulated business quarters.  After the game is completed, the facilitator debriefs the activity with the team(s) by drawing out participant insights into the team and leadership dynamics and how the dynamics compare to their interactions at work.   Participants leave energized from the game and well-informed about how they can better lead and contribute to their teams at work.

Women Leaders, take a look at this opportunity that’s just for you

women metal supporting each other clippedJoanie is putting together a Sisters Master Mind group of 12 women leaders who want to (finally!) focus on self-care.  If you’re like most high achieving women, you’ve put your life into your work, family, relationships, and everyone but yourself.  After a couple of decades of doing this, you end up in a place where you may have lost touch with yourself and wonder what’s next for you.  You may be questioning if you have the energy to make the next great thing happen.  The Sisters Master Mind gives you the support and tools for you to re-energize and make an intentional leap in the direction you want to go.  It’s only for women who are serious about changing their lives and who are committed to supporting others on their journeys too.  Call Joanie to see if it’s a fit for you.
