Stop Playing Safe: How to take smarter risks in an uncertain world
Every day we make countless decisions that impact our performance, productivity and ability to build trust and grow influence. Yet many decisions are guided by fear – fear of failure, rejection, confrontation or change. Based on Margie’s new book Stop Playing Safe (Wiley 2013), this program will help you to rethink risk and the cost of playing safe, find opportunity in adversity, and adapt more successful to the changes and challenges of an increasingly competitive, uncertain and fast changing world.
Leadership Courage: Build leadership influence and impact beyond your comfort zone
Leadership begins on the inside, and starts with making a courageous choice. For those wishing to expand their leadership competence, influence and impact, this program will challenge the beliefs that can undermine effectiveness and stifle leadership potential, outline the crucial conversations leaders need to have more frequently, and guide audience members towards expanding their vision and engaging in their work and world with greater purpose and courage.
Courageous Conversations: Build influence and grow trust
The inability or unwillingness to address issues that undermine performance, damage relationships and limit success can be profound. What doesn’t get talked out, gets acted out – and the price you pay for not speaking up far exceeds the discomfort you feel in doing so. This program will provide a proven and practical frame work for engaging in difficult conversations, along with the inspiration to get started. Crucial for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively, grow their influence, and build more rewarding, trust-filled relationships.
The Resilience Advantage: Stay focused on what matters most during uncertain times
How well you handle pressure, bounce back from setbacks, adapt to change and navigate uncertainty has a significant impact on your ability to do your job well and deliver strong results. In order to face the challenges of an increasingly complex, competitive and changing world, you must be equipped with practical strategies for bolstering resilience and staying strong when pressures mount and adversity strikes. In this program you’ll learn to recognize the causes of your stress, expand your capacity for it, and build the resiliency skills necessary to soar above the stressors that pull others down.
Leading Women: Own Your Power, Embrace Your Difference & Never Underestimate Your Worth
Women make great leaders yet despite all the advances of recent decades, there is still a paucity of women in senior leadership roles. In this powerful, practical and inspiring program Margie will share how women (and men) can work to close the gender gap and grow their influence at all levels. She will shine light on the ways women hold themselves back, helping them see themselves as every bit as deserving as men of leadership, and every bit as capable of handling its pressures and challenges. Margie will draw on her own experiences as a working mother of four who has worked with transformative women leaders around the globe, discussing ways women can better manage the conflicting demands of family and career, how they can build their leadership brand, grow their influence regardless of their position, all while embracing the invaluable feminine leadership strengths.
Margie has spoken at a host of women’s leadership events around the globe, coached many female leaders across diverse industries and interviewed many others in her research.
Margie Warrell learned many life lessons growing up on a dairy farm in rural Australia. She learned that everything worthwhile takes a risk, that courage can be learned, and that your toughest challenges can reveal your greatest strengths. Having lived and travelled extensively around the world, Warrell also learned that nothing robs our freedom or confines our potential more profoundly than fear. Fear of failing. Fear of rejection. Fear of messing up, missing out or just not being ‘enough.’ Margie tells her audience, "Creating a better world takes creating braver world. And creating a braver world begins with being a braver you. So if I can support you in doing just that, I am deeply honored!"
Margie’s passion, humor, stories and practical advice have led to her becoming a highly in demand speaker around the globe. A certified master coach and popular keynote speaker, Margie has also run ‘courage-building’ programs with organizations worldwide like NASA, Ernst & Young, AOL and the United Nations Foundation. Margie has also been a guest lecturer to MBS students at the Georgetown McDonough School of Business in Washington D.C. and at SMU in Dallas, Texas.

She’s also co-authored of two other books with Stephen Covey, Jack Canfield, Ken Blanchard and John Gray. Margie’s latest book is Train the Brave published by John Wiley in April 2015.
