    Mindful Leadership

    Event Details:

    Thursday, March 15, 2018

    5:30pm-8:00pm

    MEA, 234 Mall Blvd., King of Prussia, PA

    Program Description:

    TODAY’S WORLD

    We live and work in a new world that is hyper-connected, fast changing, and shaped by VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity). Constant distractions and information overload make it more difficult for people to remain focused and engaged at work. VUCA creates stress. Plus, there is an emerging trend of employees looking for meaning, connection and happiness at work.

    Today’s workplace calls for people that have highly focused and clear minds; those who are adaptable, resilient in the face of challenges and can lead with emotional intelligence.

    Mindful Leadership programs are designed to help people achieve precisely that – acquire skills to become more effective and focused at work. The benefits of mindfulness programs are concrete and tangible according to both scientists and business leaders; they include stronger performance, better leadership and improved overall wellbeing.

    About Our Speaker:

    Orly Maravankin, PhD

    Orly is an executive coach and a consultant. She works with both for-profit and nonprofit companies to help them thrive in the work environment today and lead with purpose. Orly holds a Ph.D. in psychology, an ICF executive coaching accreditation and is certified as a mindfulness meditation teacher.

    Orly brings 20 years of experience in business and leadership, along with expertise in Neuroscience (Brain-based coaching), Mindfulness and Behavioral Change. Her experience includes executive roles at a large global consulting firm where she served as a senior leader and a trusted advisor to Fortune 100 companies on brand and innovation strategies. She speaks and writes about topics ranging from Business Insights to Leadership to Mindfulness and is an official member of the Forbes Coaches Council.

    Orly’s own experiences allow her to understand the unique pressures and challenges leaders face today and she designed the mindfulness leadership programs with that in mind.

    Painless Surveys: From Asking the Questions to Attacking the Issues

    Tuesday, May 15th at 5:30 PM

    Crowne Plaza, King of Prussia

    In this dynamic, interactive session participants will learn how to push past objections and implement surveys successfully. The facilitators, who have each been writing, conducting, and evaluating surveys for over a dozen years, will take a deep dive into the ins and outs of engagement surveys, pulse surveys, 360 feedback surveys, retention interviews, and exit interviews. Participants will explore options regarding survey timing, question types, and survey administration. The CRS team will explore the pros and cons of anonymity and confidentiality in light of goals to build trust and secure valuable results from the highest number of participants. Morreen and Christin will share survey best practices and strategies for leveraging partnerships with Operations to maximize the value of surveys. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to interpret survey data, how to present results to the leadership team and Operations, and how to build an action plan to drive results and engagement.

    Morreen Rukin Bayles, President of CRS, Inc., founded Creative Restaurant Solutions, Inc. in 1997. Before starting CRS, Morreen acquired 25 years of deep and diverse experience in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, retail, and restaurants. She has applied the hands-on experiences garnered along the way to help organizations improve the employment experience through initiatives that focus on retention, productivity, and profitability. When restaurant clients left the industry, she opened a sister company Combined Resource Solutions, Inc., which provides surveys, training and consulting to a variety of industries. Under Morreen’s leadership the CRS team was recognized as a Philly 100 Winner in 2016 and 2017 by the Entrepreneur’s Forum of Philadelphia and the Wharton Small Business program, and Morreen was a recipient of the 2017 Enterprising Women of the Year Award.

    • Pyramid Club of Philadelphia

    Join L&D Philadelphia & the Meet the Author Series run by local training guru Theresa Hummel-Krallinger for her monthly "Meet the Author" at the Pyramid Club of Philadelphia. This month, David Bookbiner, will join us for a discussion & meet & greet on his book - the NEW ROI (Return on Individuals). More information to come soon!

    Ask anyone from the CEO to the shipping clerk about the organization's most valuable asset, and you'll get the same answer: "The people!" However, when it comes to the valuation of that organization, especially in terms of intangible assets, items like patents and trademarks wind up seeming to be more valuable. How can that be? Simple: They're more quantifiable.

    In The NEW ROI: Return on Individuals, David delves into placing a more quantifiable value on the human capital asset - the most valuable asset in every organization. Additionally, he explores universal ways to promote even greater workforce value including creating difference makers, increasing employee success, improving happiness, reducing toxic employees, generating innovation by building trust, embracing and improving corporate culture, and much more.
