  • What Were You Thinking? Making Smart Decisions in a VUCA World

    In a world of incredible change and chaos, where decisions are made in the blink of an eye, have you ever made a half-baked decision? For whatever reason, you just didn't think it through. The result? Less than stellar outcomes.

    You and your people don't have hours to agonize over every decision, (nor would you want to…) but you can get smarter about it!

    In this highly interactive and thought-provoking presentation, you will be able to:

    • Identify 5 common traps that cause poor or faulty reasoning
    • Discover simple techniques to prevent yourself from falling into these traps
    • Learn an easy, 4-step process that will allow you and your teams to be brilliant!

    VUCA is a military acronym for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous environment.

  • Innovate or Die! Mining the 7 Sources of Innovation for Your Next Big Breakthrough

    Let's face it. We're living in a commoditized world. And if you aren't innovating, you're dying.

    But it's gotta be more than "new and improved," slapping a new label on a new package of your tried-and-true product.

    You're looking for innovation…and it's in short supply!

    In this big brainstorming, barnstorming barrel of a good time, we'll:

    • Dig through Drucker's 7 sources of innovation
    • Show you how gosh darn easy it is to come up with new ideas
    • Sift through the possibilities to find real gold in them there hills!
    • Brainstorm in real time potential innovations

  • Name That Tune! Turn What Matters Most Into Action

    When you share your organization's vision, does it fall on deaf ears? Sound like Charlie Brown's teacher?

    If your employees can't understand the strategy, you can't move it forward. Your strategy stalls. Your company suffers and gets stomped on by the competition. So how do you make sure your key messages land on fertile ground and get implemented?

    Cue Business Strategist and Master Facilitator, Kristin Arnold.

    In this highly upbeat, interactive, and crowdsourced keynote, your people will be able to:

    • Name that Tune: the business vision and strategy, key concept or meeting theme so that all have a common understanding.
    • Feel the Beat: a line of sight to their impact on the business and contributions to success.
    • Know Your Part: specific actions to take back in the workplace.
    • Spotify: spread the word by stimulating excitement and passion about the tune.

  • Team Player or Spectator? How to Get Everyone in the Game

    Grrr…. It just rankles you. It's that ONE person on your team who pushes every single one of your buttons:

    • Doesn't play well with others.
    • Is late for meetings and late with deliverables.
    • Opposes everyone's ideas (unless it was their idea).
    • Rarely consults the team or keeps them informed…or just doesn't play at all?
    • Need I go on?

    Wouldn't it be amazing if everyone was a great team player…even that one?

    You can get even the most difficult team members on board when you discover:

    • The team's prime objective (remember Star Trek?)
    • Five strategies that will prevent 80% of your problems from happening in the first place
    • The Vulcan Mind-Meld to get others onboard
    • How to get people to sign up and step up – even when they don't want to
    • The rituals you should be doing to build your team every day

  • So What? Now What? Crowdsource Your "Keepers"

    You just budgeted a boatload of bucks for the upcoming conference. And what do you have to show for it? Smiley faces? Comments about the tepid coffee?

    Find out what your attendees are really going to take away and do back in the workplace.

    In this unique and highly interactive session, the participants will:

    • Share their "keepers"—key takeaways and best practices
    • Develop mastermind partnerships and accountabilities
    • Be energized and motivated to implement their ideas
    • Be excited about coming back to the next conference!

    And… you'll be able to extend the learning by following up on the actions that matter most!

  • Panel Moderation: Making Conference Panel Discussions Extraordinary

    Kristin Arnold is adept at making ordinary panel presentations powerful through a lively, engaging, audience-centered conversation. As a thought leader in making panels more powerful, she uses her facilitation skills and process techniques to make your panel session into a robust, interesting and lively discussion. She ensures there is audience/panel participation, the information is useful and the session starts and stops on time.

    Kristin knows her panel moderator role is to be the producer/director of your conference panel presentation—and not the star of the program. Your panel presenters and participants are the stars and Kristin makes them look like heroes!

  • Meeting Facilitation

    Team collaboration is how new ideas are born, big decisions are made, and problems are solved. Effective meetings are the vehicle to get there.

    But we've all been in meetings where:

    • The meeting agenda got off track and off topic
    • People didn't contribute ideas or speak up
    • Conflict arose over diverse viewpoints
    • No real decision or action plan was determined

    The result? No results. Unless a team agrees to action, a meeting is a waste of time. When your meeting is simply too important to risk this happening, you need a professional meeting facilitator.

    Meeting facilitation is like an insurance policy for your high-stakes meeting or conference. Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) Kristin Arnold takes the burden off you by designing and facilitating your meeting, as well as following up to make sure your team follows through.

    As your high-stakes meeting facilitator®, Kristin will:

    • Keep things focused, on point, and productive
    • Foster constructive conversation
    • Create an energetic, engaging environment that encourages new ideas
    • Bring diverse groups together and manage conflict
    • Guide your team to a collaborative decision and actionable plan

    Bottom Line: When people are invested in the process—when they put their fingerprints on an idea or decision—they're more likely to invest in the outcome.

“You certainly are the best at your profession. You are the best Team Facilitator Trainer in the WORLD!” —Honeywell International

“Kristin Arnold did an outstanding job as facilitator for the U.S.-South Africa Aviation Leadership Forum.

“I am so grateful for your wonderful presentation. I don’t know what I would have done without my new knowledge….Thanks so much for bringing your expertise to T. Rowe Price. I’m a true believer!” —T. Rowe Price Associates
