Workshops & Keynotes

“In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”
– Eric Hoffer

Fun and engaging!

High Five Performance Workshops can be done one-off or in a series. Every course / keynote is fully customized to fit your needs. Each engagement begins with a discussion of your specific objectives.

All topics can be customized as a workshop or keynote.

Management & Leadership

People, on the whole, leave managers not companies. That’s why it’s imperative for managers to embrace the importance of their role in the organization. A great manager is the best line of defense against employee turnover.

Most of us have had a great leader, or manager, in our lives. Wouldn’t you want to be that manager? Anyone can be a great manager. It just takes growing your skill set and re-framing your focus.

Professional Development

An education is not something you get. It’s something you take. The whole philosophy of Professional Development is to encourage people to embrace the topic and continue to build upon it on their own. Once someone is focused on change, they engage in learning beyond the workshop. Assignments, resources, and coaching help them to design and build these new skills.

Professional Development is more than a day of training. It’s the foundation that sparks an interest in becoming better at what you do.

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”

— Albert Camus

Breathe. Reflect. Ponder.

Let’s step out of the content of the day-to-day … away from the meeting agendas … the spreadsheets, charts and graphs … the email and teleconferences. Today is a day to focus more on the “how” of working, than the “what.” It’s to consider possibilities of what could be, and what’s really important.

Full day retreats are held away from the office, generally in non-business style venues, guided at getting you away from the business-as-usual mindset and seeing your work through the lens of opportunities and possibilities. High Five Performance Retreats are guided conversations with the freedom to entertain ideas and discussions that directly impact business goals, yet aren’t likely to show up on a spreadsheet. This day of focus is customized to meet your specific objective.

Retreat Themes:

  • Strategic Planning and Goal Setting
  • Mission / Vision / Values
  • Culture Best Practices
  • Team Building and Energizing
  • Professional Development


“You are surrounded by simple, obvious solutions that can dramatically increase your income, power, influence and success. The problem is, you just don’t see them.”
