Out and About

May 23, 2019 – Brian is presenting Naked Leadership  at the Arkansas Society of CPAs 2019 Accounting and Auditing Conference. He will explore the following questions so you can learn how to inspire others by being a more vulnerable and authentic version of yourself:

  • What are the costs of inauthenticity?
  • How can you increase your self-awareness muscles to be more in tune with what you hide from others?
  • How can sharing your vulnerabilities deepen your relationships and move your teams forward?

May 23, 2019 – Donna is the keynote for the Auditor of Public Accounts for the Commonwealth of Virginia at their annual statewide meeting in Richmond, VA! Donna will be presenting Speaking Volumes through Listening.

 The most important skill we may try to master is listening. It may also be the most difficult. When we fail to listen – communication breaks down, our projects break down, and our relationships break down. In our fast paced, multi-tasking and technology-driven world, the art of listening has become underrated, and even more needed.

In this very interactive session you will learn the science (and common behaviors) behind why listening is so hard and how you can specifically become a better listener in a way that can improve your life and your organization.

May 24, 2019 – Brian is leading the 2019 Leadership Conference for the Arkansas Society of CPAs with Cultivate Your Own Dream Team: Unlock the Hidden Potential in Others. He will explore how you can unleash the hidden potential of those you work with to cultivate your very own dream team:

  • What is the difference between coaching and mentoring?
  • Why and how can active listening make a significant impact in your working relationships? We’ll share five active listening techniques to help others feel understood and empowered.
  • Great leaders ask empowering questions instead of giving answers. We will break down questions to understand what makes them powerful (or not!).
  • We will share a coaching process you can use in the moment to help others become more resourceful and successful.
  • Practice makes perfect!! We’ll provide lots of opportunities to practice these new skills together!

June 11-13, 2019 – Lindsay, Donna, Sarah and Brian are all speaking at the EDGE Career Development conference at the biggest AICPA event of the year, ENGAGE 2019!

  • Uncovering Unconscious Bias (Lindsay and Rebekah Brown of MACPA on June 11) –  Each of us brings a lifetime of experiences and cultural influences that create our unique mental programming or non-conscious expectations or stereotypes that affect the judgments of ourselves and others. Our mental programming allows efficient, but sometime inaccurate, processing of information. While unintentional, relying solely on our mental programming leads to responses outside of our awareness and even conflicts with our conscious attitudes or ideals – unconscious bias. Imagine how unconscious bias may impact how we relate to different situations in the workplace if left unattended. In this session, Lindsay and Rebekah will hold a conversation about unconscious bias and how it affects each of us in our daily lives.
  • Leadership: What’s Love Got to Do with It (Donna on June 11) – When love is nonexistent – compassion, forgiveness, commitment, inclusiveness, understanding – leadership generally fails. True leadership not only requires love, it is love. Yet amazingly, love is rarely described as a leadership competency. Your future, and the future of the accounting profession, depends on our capacity to authentically model this behavior. Embrace your natural leadership skills and love for what you do, your passion, the people and organization you lead, by joining this interactive session as we explore this vital competency.
  • Lovin’ You: The Raw Truth About Fear and Self-Trust (Lindsay on June 13) – We often give too much credence to “fear” messages in our daily lives. From an early age, we are conditioned to believe that fear keeps us safe from harm. While this may be true in some instances, it often keeps us from achieving our highest potential! Leveraging Brene Brown’s ground-breaking research, we will explore the elements of trust and apply them to viewpoints of ourselves. Join us in discovering how to dissolve self-limiting beliefs and allow yourself to flourish!
  • Naked Organizations (Brian on June 13) – Don’t worry, you can keep your clothes on for this (please do!)!! In addition to your clothes, you’ll leave with a better understanding of what naked leadership truly is, and why we need it now, more than ever. Brian will also explore some specific practices you can bring back to your organization to create a more naked workplace where connection, collaboration and innovation thrive. What goes on at naked organizations? Come find out!
