Remotely Awesome Leadership

Remotely Awesome Leadership
How to manage faraway teams with near-perfect results


Without the personal power of onsite encounters, weekly or daily meetings, and the ability to visibly connect and track what people are doing, employees can feel uninformed and distracted. Good remote leadership requires a specific insight that creates a culture of commitment and productivity. And while email, phone, IM, voice text, and Zoom help a lot, those are just the tools to get a job done and not the solutions that will achieve your goals. This fun, heavily researched and virtually delivered session provides the actions and insights that allow leaders to be influential regardless of location.

  • Communicating what a good job looks like when it's finished — not just the steps to get there
  • Creating clarity and developing a culture of timely communication
  • Removing homebound worker distractions
  • Improving productivity without micromanagement
  • Remotely managing activities and goals
  • Building and maintaining motivation
  • Creating trust that fuels engagement and performance

Value-Based Leadership

Value-Based Leadership
Making Employee Engagement Actually Happen


We hear the term "employee engagement" a lot these days; we also hear how recognition, goal alignment and a clear path to success can create it. But how can an individual positively influence the opinions of his or her employees and coworkers have about their job? This highly entertaining session, backed by Evolve Performance Group research across 46 countries (and combined with over 70 years of Gallup survey data) shows that the thing people value most is feeling valuable! It gives the specific communication tools that anyone can use to dramatically reduce resistance to change, difficult behavior and employee turnover. The impact of this program reaches far beyond the session itself, creating an emotional shift that fuels immediate implementation.

Influencing Safety


Whether you are trying to reduce your number of recordables or prevent a good safety record from creating complacency, this entertaining, customized session is more than just a safe bet. It will get your people laughing, learning and motivated to create a culture of safety while maintaining productivity.

This program focuses on developing the personal influence to make things stick, whether you're helping leaders move change through their locations, dealing with COVID-based issues or getting workers to look out for each other on the job site. Garrison is authentic - a guy who's been there. He's a chemical plant explosion survivor who has developed environmental safety products still in use worldwide. He expertly fuses his experiences into key takeaways such as how to build the trust and relationships that make consistent safety a reality. He delivers those takeaways using a humorous approach that will have a serious impact on your event.

Creating a Culture of Safety

Creating a Culture of Safety


Safety is not a priority — it’s a core value. Priorities can change but core values stay in place. While research points to the fact that groups that know, value, and listen to each other are dramatically safer than groups that don’t, it takes specific skills and effort to form a sustainable culture. This session provides the skills and belief systems to make that happen. From psychological wellness, COVID related safety initiatives and embracing change, this entertaining, research-based program makes all your other safety initiatives much more likely to be implemented.
