My One Millimeter Mindset® Storytelling Speaking Programs leverage storytelling to catalyze professional development and employee and customer success and retention. Especially in organizations wrestling with workforce and leadership capacity to handle Change in today’s continuously moving, inter-connected technical environments.
I’ve watched people experience what happens when they move one millimeter beyond their comfortable habits and mindset. And connect their own story to another individual’s story. The stories we experience and co-create, together, can become life-changing. No matter how logically and precisely you are taught to process information, or not. No matter whether a teacher tells you that you are not college material (don’t believe them, because I believe in you). No matter whether you currently are in an order-taker job, but know you are a leader and innovator.
Format: 45, 60 and 90 minute keynotes and 1/2 and full day workshops.
Signature Keynote: “Build Trust. Tell the Stories Employees and Customers really need to Hear.”
Babette Ten Haken’s Signature Keynote is customized to meet three distinct audience focus areas. How may she best serve your association or organization, so you better serve each other and your clients? Get to where you need to go. Together.
FOCUS AREA 1: PROFESSIONAL INNOVATION
Title: Your Professional Purpose is the Key to Your Professional Success
Keywords: Professional Development, Communication, Leadership
Are you satisfied in your current employment role and function? Or, do you desire being invited to take a place at your organization’s leadership table? Your professional trajectory depends on how you respond when people ask: “What do you do?” Do you respond with Professional Labels: your job title, certifications or academic degree? Or, do you tell your Legendary Signature Story: how you deliver differentiated value to your employer’s table, because of Who You Are, not just What You Do?
Today’s continuously moving, Internet of Things technical environments challenge workforce and leadership capacity to handle Change. Often, software interfaces and connected equipment get along more compatibly than do their human co-workers. The key to your professional success begins in a One Millimeter Moment, when you step out of your own professional story and connect your story to other people’s stories, throughout the workplace. Become more visible, relevant and valuable to your employer, as a go-to resource for co-creating transformational human capital value. So everyone trusts they will get to where they need to go. Together.
FOCUS AREA 2: WORKFORCE INNOVATION
Title: Purpose-Driven Storytelling pokes Holes in Organizational Value Silos
Keywords: Human Capital Strategy, Professional Diversity & Inclusion, Communication, Employee Retention
How can a workforce full of people, who solve problems differently, better deliver purpose-driven, differentiated value to co-workers, colleagues, investors, stakeholders and clients? Poke holes in your organization’s value silos by leveraging purpose-driven storytelling. Discover employee experiences which make people feel marginalized, excluded or intimidated. Bridge communication and collaboration disconnects due to professional behaviors, mindset and vocabularies.
When people across the organization leverage Signature Storytelling to connect the “what I do” to “what everyone else does,” workforce productivity, profitability and innovation outcomes are improved. So is employee and client retention. Start co-creating the Signature Stories your organization will become known for. Leverage a storytelling culture as a key component of your legendary human capital strategy. Attract and retain the signature employees your clients will thank you for hiring.
FOCUS AREA 3: BUSINESS INNOVATION
Title: Build Trust. Tell the Stories Employees and Customers Really Need to Hear.
Keywords: Communication, Strategic Partnerships, Partner Retention, Client Retention
Do strategic partners and clients trust the stories you tell? For that matter, do you trust the stories you tell? Or, do you rely on use- or business-cases to inspire and retain partners and clients to do business with you? What happens to client and partner experience and loyalty, when the stories you tell shape-shift, depending on quarterly revenue goals or industry trends?
Discover the difference between buying-and-selling stories and co-creating your Signature Stories, your organization’s Legends. Grow, expand and sustain your organization across the powerful continuum created by a workforce, strategic partners and clients for whom you are exquisitely well-suited. Become co-invested in each other’s success. Create Trust: the most powerful stakeholder, partner and client experience of all. Get to where you all need to go: Together.
