explore your edgenessExplore Your Edgeness™ |

the intersection between discovery & potential

What is your Edgeness™? In order to discover it, you need to push far enough outside your comfort zone that you meet someone you never met before – an enhanced version of you. We often stay in our comfortable zone, it is secure, and we know what to expect. Here there are fewer opportunities to be judged, and less opportunity to fail. But life begins at the edge.

 

The place where you have not gone before is the place to explore, to experiment. To start challenging the “What if?” Questioning is just the beginning. We need to take some risks and not be prisoners to our barriers where our view is limited rather than limitless.
In an interactive session, Suzanne takes individuals or an organization on an adventure to challenge their perceptions of what can be achieved. She starts with encouraging the audience to look at themselves, personally and professionally. Ultimately, she challenges the audience to looking beyond their immediate circumstance and to explore their individual or organization’s edgeness™.

Well, here is the thing, people with the highest sense of well-being, have a purpose. And that purpose is a conduit to maximize personal meaning.

caution! please don't volunteerPlease, Don't Volunteer |

your personal brand depends on it

Volunteers are fabulous people; they give time and energy to a task, for no pay often in an area where they have no expertise. Without a doubt, volunteers are needed, and should be admired and celebrated. Expectations on volunteers can be limited, and performance does not equate to professional ability.

 

We have all heard, and maybe even said: “We are JUST volunteers.” What does that really mean? Don’t count on me, I will get to it, I will fit it in when it is convenient.

 

Professional associations require something more than people to ‘fit it in.’ How do you get people to show up and commit to consciously contribute to the growth and sustainability of your association? Well, you make it about them.

 

In an interactive presentation, Suzanne will provide your volunteers in your organization or association with eight-step preparation guide of what is the best opportunity for them to contribute where they will be committed to the project’s success.

  • Tom O'Neill - President
    Suzanne Stevens spoke to our Annual Convention in Niagara Falls and just nailed it! One of the most difficult challenges in business today, the creation of a workplace culture where people want to work and want to stay, is no easy subject and can easily become cliché ridden and preachy. Suzanne attacked the issue with energy and critical insight. She demolished the myths  around worker shortages and generational differences and then constructed an alternative approach that was seized upon by our franchisees. A post convention survey of all speakers placed her ahead of all our speakers in terms of giving them a new insight and a practical strategy for solving this challenge. Well done!
