My Signature Offering:
ROE (Return on Energy):
Your Secret Ingredient for Greater ROI
Doing work that lights you up is easier than work that feels hard, unnatural, or clunky. Knowing what we excel at and what we are weaker in is not a failure -- that kind of honesty can be the make-or-break information that we use to find our best work as leaders.
As financial professionals, we understand the return of a tangible investment. But what about investments that are not tangible -- emotional, leadership, energy investment? Communication skills, interaction skills, culture building skills?
Soft skills are harder to track, but just as valuable to the success and profitability of your company.
How can we know if the return on our energy (ROE, for short) is directly impacting our return on investment (ROI, that we know and love)? We take a look inside ourselves, and we look to the success of our people. This ROE (Return on Energy) is the secret ingredient in accomplishing your most important work. Reaching your professional goals while managing your personal life is a juggling act -- weighing what is needed in the moment and balancing the pull of work, family and self.
This workshop will address the juggling act to accomplish your goals by managing your energy to attain more career impact and life fulfillment.
In this workshop, you'll lean into your Return on Energy to accomplish your most important work.
This workshop can be catered to the needs of your organization. Depending on the length of Rhonda’s engagement, deliverables may include up to all of the following. You will:
- Identify your personal energizers and drains
- Learn strategies to address tasks that drain you
- Gain a deeper understanding of your own ROE to increase your ROI
- Understand how your ROE builds culture and boosts profitability
- Identify a specific step you can take in the next 72 hours to increase your ROE
(Options: breakout session, half-day workshop, or full-day workshop)
Attending a workshop and learning something new should be engaging, not drudgery.
Having fun makes the message more memorable.
Here’s what the audience says
"Helped me discover how I can contribute to who I am in my personal and professional life..."
"Rhonda will stretch you in the areas you need most - some without you even realizing it!"
"Rhonda's warmth and integrity shines through..."
"...her sense of humor is refreshing..."
"...generated an engaging discussion..."
"...provided focus and a targeted direction... It has been years since I've been so engaged."
When you lean into your ROE, you focus your energy on what matters most. Higher profitability comes from investing your team’s assets wisely and creating a supportive culture.
Rhonda’s Speaking Purpose:
I guide financial services executives, entrepreneurs and emerging leaders to lean into their strengths and energy to increase their ROI, both professionally and personally. Why? This focused energy opens the space for greater impact in your organization because you are doing your best work.
The goal of every speaking gig is obvious audience engagement with the content, meaning I’ve crafted a signature interactive approach to have fun and make the message more memorable. Audience participation is encouraged and rewarded!
Passing on the wisdom gained in coaching leaders and authentically sharing my own leadership experiences helps audiences connect to the importance of how the soft skills of leadership affect the bottom line -- that their own energy can make an impact on profits, efficiency, team culture, and more (that’s the ROE we keep talking about).
I spent my corporate career in Consumer Affairs and Marketing, working for Fortune 500 companies, including Borden Foods, International Paper, and Abbott Labs. My own transformation to an ROE focus meant moving from marketing products to marketing people. I transitioned from product brands into coaching leaders on developing their personal brand for marketplace impact through executive coaching.
Along with my B.S. from Ohio State University, I hold a certification in Executive Coaching from the Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. I am an active member of the International Coach Federation and the National Association of Women Business Owners. I am certified as an Associate Certified Coach and ©iEnneagram Motions of the Soul Professional.
Let’s work together and serve your audience through resources to help them grow their professional and personal ROI by empowering them with the knowledge of what their busyness is costing them.
