    Reality-Based Rules of the Workplace – Know What Boosts Your Impact and Will Make You Happier at Work with Ana Martos, Reality-Based Leadership

    There’s no doubt that we experience challenging times in our business world today. For many, work has never seemed tougher. Expectations continue to rise, while everyone must do more with less… leading to burnout, disengagement and a lot of workplace drama. Organizational strategic plans are calling for employees to deliver aggressive agendas with limited resources in a whole new set of work realities. Because of this, employees have come to believe that suffering is now part of working life, and they are frustrated more than ever. But what if all of that was optional? What if you could go to work feeling energetic and excited?

    You could be valued and appreciated – even a favorite at the office. You could go into work everyday and have fun, be productive, and return home at peace, with energy left over for your family and friends. What if the things that are currently making you unhappy simply lost their power over you?

    All this is possible and more. Thousands of employees have come from feeling dejected and
    undervalued to a place where they are calm, creative, and freed from anxiety and frustration at work. Not because they work harder, but because they’ve committed to changing their mindsets and approaching their workload from a Reality-Based perspective.

    In this presentation, participants learn will key strategies for getting the most out of a new value
    equation and gain insight into a revolutionary, more enlightened and strategic way of viewing the true value of their talents to the organization. They will also begin to connect employee value to productivity and thereby become able to continuously add impact to their organizations regardless of challenging circumstances that come their way. They will also learn simple tools that bypass the ego and shift energy into actions that drive results. participants will leave inspired that they can achieve these results with the team they already have because innovation, collaboration, teamwork, engagement, success – it’s all our natural state when the drama is gone.

    In this session, Ana will introduce you to Cy Wakeman’s five Reality-Based Rules of the Workplace – rules that will allow you to join the ranks of happy, high performers and help continuously achieve incredible results in everchanging business realities.
