    CHANGE THE GAME: EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT LEADERSHIP IS WRONG


    Presenter:  Jessica Bronzert

    Topic Overview: We live in a world of ever-increasing complexity and are frequently confronted by shifting threats, disruptive change and overwhelming access to opportunities. The traditional methods of leadership development have not kept up. Merely concentrating on building skills does not increase our ability to understand and respond to the multifaceted challenges we face.


    Today we will change the game by introducing Vertical Development, a process that enables you to mature as a leader – to literally “grow up.” You will discover how you can increase your capacity for growth, respond to the world more thoughtfully and deepen your understanding of culture and strategy.

    Growth starts with seeing yourself differently and more clearly. You must appreciate multiple perspectives and understand that the systems we all operate in are part of a larger whole. Vertical Development fundamentally changes the game by shifting our focus so that we can recalculate our strategy and create new outcomes.

    During our time together, you will locate yourself within the vertical framework and learn how you can elevate and improve your responses to organizational dilemmas. You will leave with an understanding of how you can use agile decision-making to create improved outcomes.

    Adopting the Vertical Development method will empower you and your team to face complex challenges and opportunities now and in the future.


    Bio: Motivated by the diversity of the human experience and organizational life, Jessica employs her MBA, specialized change and coaching training, and years of corporate and non-profit experience to help clients make the changes that make a difference to them and in the world.

    As an executive coach, change management consultant, speaker,
    and founder of The Sparks Group, Jessica is changing the way leaders think by unlocking how they view challenges while also giving them the tools to successfully navigate change, both personally and professionally.
    Jessica’s deep expertise and specialized training support her belief that traditional leadership development is broken.
    The antidote – Vertical Development.
    Jessica’s ability to take Vertical Development from theory to implementation is a game changer for organizations and teams. This cutting-edge approach combines leadership development with change management to exponentially increase the effectiveness resulting in real change inside an organization to up-level the structure and functionality of the organization and develop the capacity – not just the skills – they need to be personally and professionally successful in the face of ever-increasing change and complexity.
    Jessica lives in Charlotte, NC with her family. She serves on the board at Pine Lake Preparatory, volunteers her skills with Queens University, the Third Sector Leadership Program, and Leadership North Carolina. She is a member of Women Executives and Women’s Impact Fund. Jessica was named one of the 50 most influential women in Charlotte.

    Session Description:

    Performance Addiction – We Are Dancing As Fast As We Can

    Topic Overview: 

    Do you find yourself:

    • In survival mode, barely holding your head above water each day?
    • Unable to experience joy in your life that is inherently yours for the taking?
    • Unclear as to why your relationships feel flat or unsatisfying?
    • Unable to feel inspired or to inspire your teams?
    • Struggling with decision making or second guessing yourself
    • Unable to practice self-compassion?
    Stress, overtime and disease contribute to 2.8 million workers’ deaths per year (UN Labour Agency),
    and that’s just analyzing one side of the coin. Overwhelm that occurs outside of the workplace is also an
    epidemic, resulting in strained, empty relationships and joyless existences.
    We have created a culture of Performance Addicts, which can rob us of joy regardless of the number of
    achievements we tally. As distinct from other addictions, there is no rehab program or support for this
    addiction, resulting in an endless hamster wheel of not quite being, doing or feeling enough.
    But enough gloom and doom! There is a path to recovery. In this session we will uncover the key
    components of performance addiction as well as the practical antidote for overcoming it. We will
    discover how to transform your leadership and your life from outside–in to inside-out. This is the
    opportunity to create a life of meaning, impact and joy that you deserve.
