Do your employees and leaders too often operate in Survival Mode, putting out fires and putting off until tomorrow what should be done today? This program powerfully dispels the notion that there will always be a tomorrow in which we can finish today’s unfinished business and moves individuals to work and live with intentionality.

Safety: Don’t Count on 2nd Chances

Can too much experience be a bad thing? Absolutely…if it leads to complacency. The highly experienced pilots of Flight 965 were lulled into a false sense of security that led to the deaths of 160 people. Mercedes’ one-of-a-kind safety presentation uses the factual account of the crash of Flight 965 as an anchor to drive home the dangers of complacency and the importance of situational awareness.

I can’t control anyone around me. I can’t control their thoughts, their actions nor their opinions. But this year I’m promising myself to be better; a better mother, a better sister, a better friend, and a better colleague. The only thing I can control is the energy I bring into a room, the empathy behind my words, and the goodness in my actions. In leading with goodness, I can be a positive influence to everyone around me. Together we can create our own mobs of healing, mobs of community unity, and mobs of kindness. Will you join me in making 2021 the year of goodness by bringing out the best in ourselves, too? Let’s do this! ... See MoreSee Less
