How to find meaning in our work
A recent Gallup poll showed that people put ‘meaning’ at the top of the list of what they’re looking for in their work. That may not be a surprise, given the rising importance of social issues and the environment. But it is news to discover that we don’t have to run off to Africa to find it – we can find meaning in the work we’re doing right now. Julia helps people connect the dots. This is especially good news for employers looking to attract and engage the best talent.
“G” stands for generosity. This is one cohort that isn’t defined by year of birth (it ranges from people in their teens into those in traditional retirement years), but united by a shared desire to collaborate, innovate, and help others. Julia helps people see how they can be part of this ‘generation.’ This is especially good for organizations eager to help people feel good about themselves – and inspire them to find ways to work (and innovate) together.
Why the aging population is good news for everyone
We’ve all heard that the world’s population is getting older. Most coverage frames this demographic reality as very bad news (‘pension bomb!’). Yet the aging population actually offers enormous benefits for people of all ages. Julia helps you discover how familiar life stages are being reinvented and the social contract renegotiated. And what this means for everyone from those just entering the workforce to those who are contemplating retirement. An ideal talk for organizations grappling with labour shortages, looking for innovative ways to help older workers transition, and those exploring new ideas such as job sharing and mentoring. There is a message here for people of all ages.
Creativity at work: how to unleash your potential
We live in a world of inventions, every one of which began in someone’s imagination. Yet we cling to the myth that only some of us are creative or that innovation comes from a mysterious source. The truth is, we are all creative and can learn to become even more so. Julia helps us learn where this life force comes from, how to access it, and put it into play in our lives – and at work. A great way to unlock employee engagement.
Julia also gives talks on each of her books.
