The Connected Leader

Drive positive change through intentional and impactful communication

The future of leadership is human.

The ability to create a connection that is real, emotional, and personal drives employee motivation, engagement, and outcomes.

Connected leaders, through their own transparency, inclusion, and accountability, create a psychologically-safe environment where individuals feel like they belong and matter – which is key to job satisfaction and mental health.

The demands of new hybrid workplaces require that leaders be compassionate and conscious communicators who can lead change, and influence and impact their teams.

In this engaging, uplifting, and research-based program, leaders will master their ability to communicate and connect on deeper levels by learning how to:

  • Strengthen emotional intelligence to maximize impact and influence
  • Invest time to grow and develop the whole person to attain and retain talent
  • Create intentional rituals to build a healthy, engaged, and committed team
  • Learn specific, human-centric conversations that inspire action and cooperation
  • Champion the accomplishments and strengths of every individual on your team
  • Create a culture of growth where individuals flourish and thrive

*This presentation can be delivered as a keynote, break-out session or full-day program

“Colette was truly a joy to work with. She delivered the closing keynote at our annual leadership conference, speaking to our 500+ leaders. I don’t think we’ve ever had a speaker do as much preparation as she did and it really showed. Colette was exactly what we were looking for and she exceeded our expectations!! Beyond that, she was pleasant to work with and delivered on all of her promises.”

“We had Colette Carlson back for our Annual Leadership Retreat. No regrets. She was spot-on with her content and delivered in a way that resonated with each leader at all levels of the organization. Colette has a way of connecting all the dots by combining her knowledge and expertise peppered with just enough humor to capture and hold the attention of the entire room. She rocked it!”

Leadership is not a job title, it’s a state of mind. Liberate the leader inside whether you are an executive, a manager, a supervisor, a team leader, a committee member or even a parent to foster healthy communication to build trust, decrease conflict and increase productivity.
