    Organizational Change; How Leaders Build Trust and Buy-In

    Facilitated by Karalee Picard with North Omaha Music & Arts(NOMA)

    Adaptive leadership is both a practice of (1) collectively marshaling people to confront tough challenges, generate solutions, and thrive, and (2) being agile and adept in the face of complexity to intuitively assemble people and create space for people to tackle tough challenges, create innovative solutions, and flourish. During organizational change, leaders must engage with employees to deliver information, offer opportunities for participation, and to build trust in those members managing the change. Throughout individual leader-follower interactions, leaders will learn about people and will better understand what is valuable in the organizational culture and must be preserved, as well as how to motivate and mobilize change through focusing others’ attention on the needs of the organization. In organizational change, leaders must understand that followers will mobilize behind the leader to achieve collective efforts or goals, and in order to accomplish that, leaders must understand that success will likely only come when followers can help create the change.

    Attendees will understand how adaptive leadership is necessary to create buy-in and build trust with followers in order to create change in an organization. Understanding your own leadership and communication styles will help to be able to adapt to others’ styles. Attendees will leave having an idea about how to engage with people who have different styles to build relationships and trust.

    Karalee Picard, EdD, holds a doctorate in Interdisciplinary Leadership from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska. She has 26 years of experience leading organizations in the Department of Defense, where she still works part-time. She is also now the Chief People Officer and Director of Operations at North Omaha Music & Arts (NOMA), where she envisioned and created the organization from the ground up. She has recently started a leadership consulting business in the Omaha area, where she teaches adaptive leadership and communications styles. She is on the Brownell Talbot Board of Trustees and is the President of the board at ENVY Volleyball.

    Finally, she is a Rotarian at Omaha Night.

    Why Empathy is Essential in the Workplace

    Facilitated by Jeannie Frazier with Franklin Covey

    Empathy is the ability to share and understand the emotion of others. It is important because it helps us understand how others are feeling, so we can respond appropriately to the situation. Remember, there is always more than meets the eye.

    Empathy is more than a “soft skill” that can be learned and practiced. When genuinely used correctly, Empathy can become one of the most powerful assets to positively impact an organization’s bottom line, retention, and engagement. 87% of CEOs believe Empathy is linked to financial performance per the State of Workplace Empathy.

    During this meeting, you will have the opportunity to:

    • Explore the significance of Empathy in the workplace
    • Analyze Empathy in leadership
    • Learn how to build Empathy with co-workers

    • Use curiosity and Empathy to hear and value diverse perspectives
    The end in mind for our time together is to ensure you take away ideas and best practices

    from the research and your colleagues to build more effective relationships, improve

    human interactions, and drive positive experiences in the workplace. 

    Members will increase their understanding of the importance and the skill behind Empathy. They will walk away with research, statistics, new ideas, and proven best practices to help make their organizations more empathic. 

    Jeannie is a Client Partner with FranklinCovey for the state of Nebraska. She currently works with organizations across all industries to drive results through human performance improvement. She specializes in the areas of leadership development, customer service, trust, productivity, unconscious bias, strategy execution, and sales effectiveness. Jeannie has 20 years of experience in Learning and Development through a practitioner role with General Electric and consultative, client-facing roles with AchieveGlobal (now Korn Ferry), Wilson Learning, and CEB (now Gartner). Jeannie has a reputation of being an approachable, credible resource for her customers and learning peers. She excels at bringing people together to share ideas and best practices to address company challenges. Jeannie is a Creighton University graduate who brings a successful track record, innovative and value-driven ideas, and a passion for learning that her clients and network appreciates.
