What's Beyond Happiness? and why do we need it now more than ever.
Since the world hit reset in 2020, people have been asking:
Whether you lead a company, teams, or your own work/life, it’s time to get to the core of who you are, live the purposeful life you want, and ripple your impact to people in your business and beyond.
In this session, Jenn shares why it’s time to redefine happiness, the role that life’s highs and lows play, and how we’re more resilient when we live with happiness and humanity. She’ll define what it means to take care of your greenhouse as you grow others and explain the new concept of the double ROI — return on investment and ripple of impact.
When we apply the learnings from Beyond Happiness, we wake up knowing, regardless of what bad news might be in the headlines that day, that we’re grounded in our internal worlds. That we’re putting our time and talents to the best use in service of ourselves and everyone we touch in our ecosystems.
Welcome to the New Workplace
...where do we go from here for people, growth, adaptability, and impact?
As Jenn likes to frame it, the whole world got 2020’d, and the “future of work” is already happening now. With change still happening all around us, it’s more important than ever to get your team aligned to do their best work and feel (beyond) happy. Teams need tools to embrace the constant volatility and uncertainty. They want real-talk, and they want it now.
In this session, Jenn will share the greenhouse elements every workplace needs to fully adapt and thrive, first as individuals, then as a team and community. Learn how the GreenhouseModel can help your team feel connected with a sense of belonging, communicate effectively, and feel purpose-aligned with their team and company.
Real Talk on Recruiting & Retaining Top Talent
The real reason behind all of the latest workplace trends and how to get to the root of workplace issues.
While the way we work keeps shifting between in-person, remote, and hybrid, employees are jumping ship for their own reasons. The workplace trends we’ve been experiencing all stem from systemic issues of the way we work just isn’t working anymore. As leaders, we need to understand the root causes and why it’s not just about more pay or a big benefit package anymore.
In this session, Jenn will uncover what’s needed inside every culture to attract and retain top talent and how to create environments where people can do their best work. She’ll also share post-2020 examples of how companies can build cultures that keep employees coming back, showing up fully, and performing their best.
Bring Humanity to Work
..get real with ourselves and our teams for a more whole, authentic workplace.
When we show up authentically at work, we can bring our whole selves, which benefits everyone on the team. When leaders encourage others to bring their whole selves and unique perspectives to each situation, solutions are created, innovation happens, and diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging flow naturally.
Jenn will inspire you and your team to show up authentically and embrace the highs and lows in work/life. Leaders who create a genuine, inclusive work environment know it’s not just the “RIGHT THING TO DO”; they know it’s also creating more profits and purpose in the world. When we get real with ourselves, THAT’S when happiness and humanity come alive.
What's in it for me? What's in it for all?
How people think, say, and DO with alignment and belonging.
It’s no secret that core values are essential to culture and success. The majority of companies have defined their values. But do those values still ring true and represent the company you are today? And, do your employees align and actually live these values daily? Are your values leading up to a purpose that drives your company’s success?
In this session, Jenn will share the significant impact teams experience when individuals define their personal values and ladder those up to the organizational values. She’ll share her values journey from life BC (BeforeCovid) to life AC (After Covid) and how those values may have changed. When we know our values — and how to LIVE them — we realize how our decisions impact our lives and the organization as a whole, for better or worse.
Me + We + Community
Flowing Beyond Happiness to Unleash Human Potential for a Purposeful +Positive Double ROI (Return on Investment/Ripple of Impact).
At every defining moment in the consumer life cycle, there are opportunities to create a strong positive (or negative) brand experience, and those moments start with the employee. When we create a triple win—people are supported as individuals, teams/customers are supported, and businesses are more successful.
In this session, Jenn shares how as leaders, we can adapt to change, be profitable and purposeful, and support all people and our stakeholders (spoiler alert...it starts with your greenhouse first). When we nurture our greenhouse, we can then nurture others and create a ripple effect that positively impacts our whole ecosystem of people.
Starting with the employee means embracing with purpose and values the entire life cycle of humans, not just the time they spend on the clock. She’ll share real-world examples of organizations applying these greenhouse elements, which led to happier customers, more brand loyalty, and more profitable, impactful businesses.
The bottom line is when values, purpose, and behaviors align, a positive ripple of impact flows from the individual to team and company to customers, partners, vendors, and even the society and planet.
