Harnessing Change: The Power of Team in Transformation

Change is key to the longevity of organizations and yet it continues to be cited as one of the biggest challenges faced by businesses today.  Successful and sustained change requires a commitment deep within the teams and people affected by it. While time and investment is required to achieve this, the payoff of an inspired team can be exponential for the organization.  Thriving through change requires clarity on the individual and team ‘why,’ commitment, planning and resilience. Fiona and her team explore the foundations required to navigate a team through a successful change program, ensuring your team:

  1. Recognizes that discomfort in change is normal, but that discomfort can drive determination
  2. Is clear on their bigger ‘why’ for committing to the change
  3. Can manage ambiguity, aligning behind a vision where the ‘what’ is known before the ‘how’
  4. Has tools to guide them through the inevitable hurdles that appear during the change process

Tools For Turbulence

Our current environment continues to send curveballs our way at an unprecedented rate. While unsettling, this has the potential to enable people to soar to new levels of success as we demonstrate our resilience and creativity in our new environment. This interactive workshop addresses the root cause of some of these challenges, provides personal strategies and tools to manage these headwinds, and transform turbulence into personal triumphs of all sizes. In this session we explore:

  1. How to rise above the fear and overwhelm created by current events
  2. Strategies to enhance your experience as a virtual employee
  3. How to balance work and parenting / support your colleagues with children

If you want someone to galvanize your team with inspiration and tenacity, Fiona is your woman!  Fast-paced, insightful, funny, warm and engaging are her key strengths. You won’t regret carving out time from the day-to-day grind to supercharge your team!

On behalf of the Mother Attorney Mentoring Association (“MAMA Seattle”) I would highly recommend hiring Fiona McKay and Katie Duke to speak to your organization. We hired them to speak to our members on “Tools for Turbulence” and how to handle being lawyers and moms in the midst of the pandemic. I know we all left the one-hour presentation with concrete tools on how we can more effectively delegate and ask for help so that we can focus on our inner selves. But my favorite quote from the presentation was “I am not perfect, but I am fabulous.” It was a good reminder to keep things in perspective and to stop being your own worst critic. Thank you, Fiona and Katie. This was time and money well spent.

I attended one of Fiona’s leadership seminars last year, and left feeling both enlightened and empowered. Exploring the many concepts surrounding leadership, and the path to become a leader, can be treacherous to navigate in a large-group setting. Fiona’s engaging and direct presentation style maintained a structured, yet personable experience for all of us who participated. Her approach to leadership embodies the courage, awareness, and tenacity required to not only succeed, but excel in today’s demanding and ever-changing business world.
