Function at Full Capacity: Creating Energy, Connection & Courage

(55 min.)

SPEAKER: Natalie Johnson, Co-Founder and CVO of ViDL 

OVERVIEW: This training focuses on the three most significant elements of organizational well-being that allow organizations to function at full capacity: energy, connection and courage. Read the below attributes to learn more about what we’ll be covering in this insightful webinar!

Energy is one of our most valuable resources yet most of us fail to manage it effectively. This workshop will focus on how we can connect to a valuable motivator that will help us to change and sustain behaviors that support physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy.

Connection: Many teams struggle with ego, ineffective communication, and a lack of trust. We’ll introduce a foundational skill that will elevate team performance through better trust, communication, and collaboration.

Courage: Command and control leadership still exists in most organizations because you can scare people into doing what you want. However, it’s not sustainable and the consequence is burnout, lack of organizational trust and wasted resources. This workshop will define what it means to be a courageous leader and introduce a sustainable way of leading effectively.
