Corrinne’s presentation was engaging, practical, pitched well and highly appropriate for a group of both experienced and newly appointed senior leaders. It was right on the mark for a dinnertime presentation and everyone left with something they could apply in their day to day work, and a desire to better understand the barriers to successful people leadership.

Corrinne’s level of connection with the audience was instantaneous. She was able to hit the right chord very quickly. Everyone was engaged in understanding their own ‘leadership derailers’ and

took away strategies to improve their own leadership and leadership within direct reports.

3 keynotes to change your thinking…

1. Guerilla Leadership

The value of human connection

Key messages: Adventure, Trust, Vulnerability, Leadership

There are times when everything is too much. Urgent priorities, high uncertainty, low morale, sleep deficit, and danger lurks in the shadows. Nothing can be worse… Until the enemy starts shelling! Welcome to the life of a guerrilla fighter, where there is much to learn about leadership.

Corrinne lived and worked in a refugee camp on the edge of a war zone, falling in love with a guerrilla fighter. He was a natural leader. Operating in dire circumstances and fueled by strong sense of purpose; vulnerable enough to trust and bold enough to dream that another way was possible.

Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as Corrinne shares stories from her time in the jungle; lessons about leadership that are just as applicable in our corporate jungle as they are in a war zone.

This keynote will:

  • Show it’s possible to stay focussed, regardless of chaos and overwhelm
  • Provoke personal exploration
  • Demonstrate what’s needed to inspire others and lead under fire
  • Challenge people to see leadership as an activity and not a role.

2. Ask More. Tell Less. Lead Fearlessly:

Creating Fearless Cultures and saving the world

Key messages: Leadership, Performance, Engagement, Change

True leadership requires a new and innovative approach. It’s a tough gig! Boosting engagement, building accountability, fostering creativity are still the cornerstones of brilliant leadership, but today’s rapidly changing landscape requires more.

As leaders, our desire to solve problems for our people can often drive us to help too hard. This powerful keynote inspires leaders at all levels of the business to deliver superior results by learning a few simple techniques that promote initiative and enhance ingenuity.

Your audience will hear incredible stories as Corrinne shares transformational insights into brain science, that will shift your ‘ask/tell ratio’ to connect deeply, lead fearlessly and achieve results.

Afraid to listen – Ask more

This keynote will:

  • Promote a NEW kind of leadership
  • Move people from complacency to collective power
  • Help leaders understand why telling is not the answer
  • Empower the audience to build curiosity and sit comfortably with uncertainty
  • Leave people inspired to lead their own quest to follow their ‘why’ and save the world

3. Fearless Leadership: 12 ways to derail your leadership fast

Key messages: Leadership, Performance, Engagement, Influence

As leaders, we all act with the best intentions. But what happens when our inside intentions are not reflected to others by our external behavior? It’s harder to influence upwards, our teams don’t respond well, our career can stall… We can be derailed very fast!

Consider the leader whose intention is to support his team and maintain a high standard, and yet is seen by his line manager and his team as a micromanager. Performance suffers. Derailed!

Corrinne gives the audience speed overviews of the 12 leadership derailers, drawing laughter, insight and sometimes some uncomfortable squirms as people recognise themselves and others. This keynote draws on her book ‘Developing Direct Reports: Taking the guesswork out of leading leaders’, and she shares immediately actionable insights to reach your leadership potential.

Afraid to connect – Fearless Leadership.

In this keynote Corrinne will show your people how to:

  • Recognise the 12 common leadership derailers
  • Understand which derailer most limits their own leadership, and how to avoid being derailed
  • Create improved relationships and build greater influence
  • Accelerate their career by architecting their impact
  • Lead stronger performance
