9:10 am – 10:15 am  | The Brilliance of Resilience: Build Your Custom Stress-Busting Strategy with Positive Intelligence 

Jacy Imilkowski, Certified Coach and Speaker

The burnout crisis is real, and the numbers are staggering. 23% of employees are chronically burned out, and 47% more are headed in that direction (and those stats are prior to the pandemic!). The stresses of our personal and professional lives often overlap each other, causing the pressure to multiply. So how do you keep yourself and your team healthy and moving forward when times are tough? Answer: Learn your habitual stress reactions and develop customized responses to recover faster and more effectively. This open, honest, and funny program combines Positive Intelligence® and storytelling to help identify how your internal Judge reacts to challenging situations. Once you observe the Judge’s behaviors, you’re empowered to intentionally leverage your “Sage” mind skills such as empathy, curiosity, and innovation to counteract them. This increases mental flexibility and creates the ability to choose resilience and growth over overwhelm and burnout in the face of challenge.

  • Explore personal relationships with challenge, resilience, and growth
  • Identify specific signs that your inner Judge is influencing thoughts and behavior
  • Counteract or Prevent negative judgements using neuroscience-based pattern interrupts
  • Create a custom stress-busting strategy based on your personal reactions to challenges

10:30 am – 12:00 pm | What Did Our Brains Just Say? The Neuroscience of Effective Leadership Conversations 

Jacy Imilkowski, Certified Coach and Speaker

Have you ever said something to someone that unintentionally upset, or even offended, them? Even with the best intentions, our words sometimes have unintended impacts. So how do you recover from the disconnection and rebuild trust when that happens? This session provides one solution to that problem: Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ®). C-IQ is a neuroscience framework for identifying and recovering from unintentional impacts to build trust in communication. During a conversation, there’s a neurochemical cocktail that’s influencing all parties involved. These influences are unconscious, however, we can learn to recognize the signs of neurochemical impacts and tailor our communication to create the highest trust and connection. 

These skills are key to building relationships with intention and having effective conversations around challenging topics 

  • Identify the impact of different neurochemicals on communication and trust 
  • Differentiate between three levels of conversation and learn to switch between them  
  • Overcome conversational blind spots that negatively impact trust  
  • Apply three neuroscience strategies to restore positive relationships following a disconnection 

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm | Lunch Provided

1:00 pm –  3:00 pm | Fair Is Fair Until It Isn’t: Core Values-Based Personal and Professional Leadership 

Jacy Imilkowski, Certified Coach and Speaker

Does “fair” mean that everyone is treated the same, or that everyone is treated as an individual? The answer is: Yes. Core values are the foundational, guiding principles that dictate human behaviors and actions. How we recognize people’s core values is one of the fastest ways to create a foundation of connection (or conflict) for an entire team. Identified values contribute to successful, customized solutions. Missed values lead to lowered team morale poor solution outcomes, and the cost of re-work from disconnection and miscommunication. Participants will learn three specific skills to identify core values through listening, observation, and inquiry. Knowing your team members’ core values gives profound insight into what keeps them connected and moving forward, even with conflicting beliefs or points of view. 

Learning Objectives 

  • Differentiate between personal, professional, and organizational values 
  • Engage team members uniquely using their personal and professional values 
  • Apply a three-step process to prevent and resolve conflicts using core values  
  • Build stronger relationships between team leaders, members, and stakeholder 

3:00 pm – 4:30 pm | Community Service Project 

This group project will provide support to a local charity in the Stevens Point community.
