Reputational Dexterity 

Executives across the globe ranked the damage to brand and reputation as their number one enterprise risk in 2017. Reputational crises can destroy market value and influence stakeholders’ perceptions. But by cultivating reputational dexterity, companies can prepare for crises while also creating lasting value. Reputation management is about winning the hearts and minds of those stakeholders. In today’s volatile world, an organization’s positive reputation is an essential part of doing business.

He will share his ideas and experiences. His range of knowledge is staggering and any audience will relate to his substance and depth.  He will bring fresh and compelling perspectives –whether story telling or teaching-and he will make every minute count. 

Teamwork and Team Building
A company is only as strong as its employees. For this reason, it is important to build solid relationships with peers in the workplace. Mike focuses on building confident and educated business teams who understand risks and make smart, compliant decisions. He is known for his inventive approaches and ability to work proactively with clients to find practical solutions.

Teams aren’t static or monolithic. Employees can feel completely upended by a new member and everyone needs to find creative and efficient ways to solve problems. 

To foster communication and collaboration needed for organizations to meet objectives and exceed expectations, every human resource manager and every leader must have the skills to build and fortify their teams. Mike Huggins is experienced in teaching team-building skills in a number  of industries and organizations. No matter the size of your team and your organization’s objectives, Mike’s team-building expertise can turn conflicting team members and failed objectives into finished products giving your organization the competitive edge it needs. 

Change Management
Leading teams through change is how true leaders rise to the top. Change management is more than simply helping your employees adapt to organizational and cultural changes. It is not a one-stop temporary fix to a sudden shift.  Nor is it a one-stop fix for the evolving changes in operations, technology, and culture. Change management is an ongoing strategy and mindset.

 

Mike Huggins is a change management thought leader who knows most people would rather erase change than embrace it.  Mike’s techniques and change implementation strategies for staying resilient, keeping your best people, and supporting your entire staff  will help your organization not just survive oncoming changes but thrive. His actionable tips for becoming change-resilient will prepare your audience for everything from bracing for regulatory changes to lasting cultural shifts.

Soft Skills Training 

Surprisingly, 44% of executives feel that having weak soft skills is the most pressing issue when it comes to gaps in American workforce proficiency. So you’re not alone if you feel that communication in your workplace isn’t at the level equal to the talent of your staff. 

In today’s technology and data-driven world, emotional intelligence has definitely been sidestepped, and soft skills are notoriously hard to teach.  Mike is a renowned soft skills trainer, combining his beliefs in mindfulness and life-enriching goals with his corporate culture knowledge. His engaging soft skills training will leave your workforce more emotionally intelligent, with capabilities they will take with them the rest of their careers and lives.


Mike’s soft skills training programs include:

  1. Working as well in a team as sitting at a desk

  2. Learning the verbal cues, body language, and other ways to read people that are lost with texting and emailing

  3. Having your employees represent your business core values

Leadership and Corporate Culture
Corporations have a responsibility to those whom they can affect-employees, stakeholders, society at large. Mike is an expert at explaining the inner workings of leadership and culture. He illustrates from his own successful experiences how great leaders surround themselves with people who are better than they are in significant ways and who have aligning values. 


From stakeholders to stockholders – people want to believe in their leaders. And managers will learn how to step up to leadership roles. Leadership is not just about better management -it is about identifying the strengths of a leader and learning how to model them on a day-to-day basis.
 

The Business Benefits of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is not new; it is simply being aware without judgment. Many businesses have successfully incorporated these techniques to improve the effectiveness of meetings, of the decision-making process and of overall communication.  Mike will provide practical tips to be mindful in the real world.
