The Power of Flexing: How to Use Small Daily Experiments to Grow Your Own Leadership
Have you ever experienced:
- - A personnel shift at your organization that puts you into a leadership role you’re not prepared for?
- - A boss who tells you that you seem aloof and unapproachable (or too talkative or not persuasive) in client meetings?
- - Difficulties winning support for a project you feel passionate about within a local community group?
If any of these seem familiar to you, then the power of flexing offers a way forward.
These situations, and many more like them, call for growth of a particular kind - they challenge you to grow your soft skills, your personal and interpersonal effectiveness. Whether it’s time management, team building, communication and listening, creative thinking, and problem-solving, Flexing helps you move ahead when you’re confronted with a new challenge, or simply want to develop a vital skill.
More than a set of techniques for what to do in various situations, flexing gives you an adaptable approach to growing yourself. It can be tailored to what you most need, allowing you to reflect on your own experiences and incorporate the lessons you learn in the next project you tackle. It’s a growth mindset that will help you become the best version of yourself.
Flexing gives you a roadmap for how to learn the most from your situations, whether in an organization, community group, or family. Flexing also works with teams and organizations!
In this session, Sue will share how you can implement flexing to ensure you’re ready for new challenges and able to grow your leadership at your own pace and over time. She’ll also offer advice to organizations hoping to re-orient their leadership development around a process of flexing.

In this talk you'll learn what boundaries are (and aren't), how to begin to set healthy boundaries and how to respect other people's boundaries, without feeling bad about it. You'll leave with several action items you can easily implement today to build healthy boundaries.

Leveling Up Your Cultural Competency
This is “the road less travelled”. Organizations who are considered to be the leaders in employee and community engagement and diversity/inclusion management understand that ideas and developing a culture of belonging is the currency of the 21st century. Ideas come from people - engaged people. Make no mistake; this is, by far, the toughest way to go. However, the dividends are both tangible and sustainable. This approach is not about how many “these” or “those” you have but about brains around the table, how an organization connects with the constituents in their community gaining valuable and various perspectives - how to maximize them. This is about creating a culture where people aren’t simply welcome but where people can belong.
This is the language of all thoughtful organizations because this is the language of real community. It is sustainable if properly inculcated into the strategic planning of the organization.
