What You Will Learn

Those attending learn valuable skills, tools, and strategies in four key sections, including:

  • EQ-Emotional Quotient - this section focuses mostly on the ‘self’, the things needed in everyday life to ensure participants are ready, willing, and able to be the best version of themselves they can be. Best individual, best collaborator, best leader
  • CQ-Creativity Quotient - this section focuses on mindsets and behaviors that help participants make creativity a habit in their work and personal lives and not an ‘epiphany’
  • AQ-Business Acumen Quotient - this section focuses on mindset, tools and behaviors that encourage participants to increase their business acumen by amplifying their strengths and the strengths of their teams, working together as a whole
  • InQ-Innovation Quotient - this section is about taking the first three sections - using tools, behaviors, and mindsets - to evoke culture change, drive results, foster leadership, encourage change and INNOVATE your business!

Guidelines for Participation

Those registering for the Innovation and Leadership Live-Virtual Workshop will need adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Dress Casual - Casual and comfortable "work from home" clothes recommended; we will be doing some actual physical activity during this workshop; participants should be ready to get up and move at any time.
  2. Materials - We'll be using a variety of simple capture methods during this workshop, be sure to have about 10 blank 8 1/2 x 11 (letter size) pieces of paper, as well as one or two Sharpie-style markers to write with. This is in addition to your normal note/doodle pad.
  3. Plan to Login Early - We're going to try to keep this to the time allocated each day, be logged in to the designated Zoom link and ready right at the start time, which means starting the process about 10 minutes earlier then the meeting time.
  4. Video Call-in is a MUST - We want to see those faces, so for the success of this workshop, please only participate if you are willing to turn the video portion on. This workshop is ACTIVE vs PASSIVE. Here are a few tips to help the Zoom Video conference experience better for everyone participating:
    1. Update your Zoom Desktop App to the latest version by clicking your name/profile pic on the top right corner of the Zoom desktop app, then clicking "Check for Updates". Once complete be sure to test both your audio and video again to ensure everything is working properly.
    2. Camera and Lighting - if possible, select a place in your home or office where you have plenty of front lighting and less backlighting. This helps us see everyone's faces better and is closer to that 'in-person' feel.
    3. Computer Location - if you have the option, try to use a desktop or laptop computer (instead of an iPad or phone.) When setting up for the call, be sure to pick a location in your home or office that has a less distracting background. Avoid windows with visible movement, high traffic areas, noisy spaces, or bright lights behind you.
    4. For multiple participants in the same location, please plan on using separate devices in separate rooms.
  5. Multitasking - Multitasking will be discouraged - similar to what we would ask an in-person group, we'll be asking everyone to refrain from multitasking (aka cooking, emailing, web searching, etc.) while we're together.
  6. Group Interaction - We'll be dividing into smaller groups often throughout the workshop to get the most out of the content. Please be ready to interact actively with your fellow participants

Testimonials

"When Dan was invited to share his thoughts on management and leadership with our YPO group, we knew we would get some great, useful content stemming from Dan’s 20 plus years as a Disney Executive. We also got a great story teller in the Walt Disney tradition. Many of our members echoed the same thoughts- it is Dan’s down to earth presence, his genuine sincerity in his message and in helping the group, and his rare ability to use storytelling to bring the lessons learned to life. Our group came away with relevant, actionable content that was deeply insightful."
