Most internal communication, human resources and leadership programs focus on Ten Steps, Case Studies, How-To, and Technology solutions that talk about the same-old, same-old.

I realized a few years ago that my approach to communication was different. I thought of it as the glue that connected disparate areas and integrated them to make ordinary organizations accomplish extraordinary feats. It was a little about doing stuff in your own little box, but more about thinking, risk-taking, listening and collaborating to build inner strength.

That's what Inner Strength Sessions are all about. I want to bring conversations about what really makes organizations successful to my connections here in Toronto (for now ; ). I'm bringing those out-of-the-box thinkers that have inspired me to YOU.

I met my first guest when I first started my career in Communication. In the early 90's she was encouraging a not-for-profit chapter (IABC/Toronto) to launch it's first website, before I even knew what a website was. After years consulting with Communication agencies with clients across North America, she eventually joined the executive team of Cisco Systems in Silicon Valley.

Ayelet Baron, is now a visionary author, speaker, coach and workshop facilitator, committed to making a transformational impact on business. Her recent book, The Journey to Corporate Sanity: Transformational Stories from the Frontiers of 21st Century Leadership explores what is possible when we focus on community, connectivity and culture driven with purpose.

She's paid to speak to executive audiences around the world, but since she happens to be in town, she's agreed to bring her expertise to my first Inner Strength Session. How lucky am I to have my heroes also be my friends.

Please join us Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in downtown Toronto. Register before Monday and you'll be entered into a draw for signed copy of her new book.

Since our venue is intimate, and I want to encourage conversation, please make sure you register in advance since there is limited availability. I can't wait to inspire you to think differently about what is possible when we believe that the true potential of organizations are built from the inside-out.

For the majority of my corporate and consulting career, I have worked for corporations and have had the opportunity to support unionized environments from the employer side successfully. In 2017, I had the unique and wonderful opportunity to work inside a union and it helped reinforce my dedication to employees who bring our organizations to life.
Some people seemed a little annoyed last year when I called my new Strategic Internal Communication Conference, the first annual. Those of you who know me, know that I'm an optimist and maybe I just believe in the power of positive thinking?
