-Colleen Slaughter

 

Colleen Slaughter, managing partner of Authentic Leadership International, uses her expertise to guide international leaders as they attain the clarity, courage and self-confidence necessary to realize higher levels of productivity and fulfillment in both their personal and professional lives.

Colleen’s purpose is to facilitate her clients’ transformation from limiting beliefs and self-doubts into a deeper, more powerful knowingness of how much they – and what they envision for themselves – truly matter.

Her unparalleled experience working abroad in a variety of cultures and across an array of industries gives her an uncanny ability to help individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds achieve the deep, lasting transformation they need to flourish. Clients move toward real change through a clear understanding of their goals and by aligning their intention and attention with their core values.

A Rebel With a Good Cause…

From being nicknamed “Miss Independent” at an early age to moving to Paris alone when she was just 21 – with no money and not even speaking the language – Colleen knows a thing or two about making bold moves. Yet, she is no stranger to self-doubt – in fact, Colleen often says at one point in her life, it felt like she was surrounded by the word “no.”

Colleen considers herself a “rebel with a good cause” – meaning that she doesn’t hesitate to go against the grain when the right-thing-to-do-instinct dictates. Clients say that she is very easy to relate to and that they are better able to get in touch with their true, more authentic selves as a result of the trusting relationship established through their work together.

Colleen’s Path of Change Leadership

Over fifteen years ago, Colleen took part in the merger of two large consulting firms. Stung with the “retaining the Best and the Brightest” bug, after graduate business school at HEC Paris, she went on to Change Management Consulting for such companies as GM, France Telecom (now Orange), Aventis (now Sanofi), British Telecom, Heinz, Husky and Ariba.

Seeking to affect change at a deeper and more lasting level, she graduated from the Newfield Network in 2009 with its rigorous coaching certification. Today, through her coaching and facilitating work, Colleen brings out the very best in leaders and helps them lead from the heart.

Outside of Work…

Originally a small town girl from Kentucky, USA, Colleen has found her true home in Lyon, France. She resides there with her German husband and her two spunky little girls (they take after their mom!) who are the lights of her life.

In order to deepen her yoga practice, Colleen followed a 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training course in 2009. Since then, you can find her on the mat pretty much every day. When she’s not on the yoga mat, you just might catch her whipping up fresh fajitas and guacamole in the kitchen or trying out her latest salsa moves…arriba!

Breakthrough Tactics on Being a Change Leader While Being Yourself

Change can be an intimidating word, especially for those of us who seem to spend our time at work and at home constantly readjusting.  We feel as though we’re constantly reacting to the Changes that occurring in our life, and therefore the idea of Change causes us to feel uncomfortable.  Yet Change is how we get from where we are, to where we want to be.

So how can we get the most out of Change? By modifying our approach to it. We can decide to lead it rather than to merely withstand, or manage, it. A big part of this move from managing Change to leading it comes through becoming more authentic. Getting There For Real: The Role of Authenticity in Leading Change will show you how, by leading Change with authenticity we can get more of the things we want.

In this program, participants will:

  • Understand the dynamics effecting our view of Change
  • Discern the difference between managing and leading
  • Discover the practices for becoming more authentic
  • Determine the methods for dealing with challenges

You’ll be inspired to become more aware of the ways you can take greater control of the Change happening in and around you to create more of the results you want.

Working Your Emotions at Work

Which emotions do you feel have the most obvious place in the work space?  Passion?  Joy?  Do these seem like obvious emotions for leaders?

What about emotions like fear and anger?  Do you think these emotions play a role in the most successful people’s emotions at work?  All emotions can be valid and useful in the workplace.  It’s about getting the most out of the emotions in the office in three steps.

That is precisely what this presentation does.

In this program, you will:

  • Become more aware of ways you let emotions stand in your own way at work
  • Discern what your particular emotions are telling you about yourself, or others
  • Realize the vast array of emotions at your disposal
  • Embody the aspects of that emotion that will help you to get where you want to be

You’ll be inspired to become aware of the vast array of emotions at your disposal and to embody the appropriate emotion to create more of the results you want.

Setting Boundaries to Spring Forward

How much time do you spend doing the things that are meaningful to you? How comfortable are you saying “no” when something conflicts with your goals?

Many professionals consider balance in their work and in their lives a substitute for moving quickly up the ladder.

And, yet, living our lives in a way that honors what is important to us – exactly what real balance is all about – makes our efforts that much more impactful.

Balance has also often been equated with managing time. While these two might be related to a certain degree, what balance is really about is integrating what has meaning to us into our schedules on a regular basis. When we prioritize the things that are more important to us, more satisfying to us, then we find the other responsibilities in our life less stressful because we see the rewards. Saying “no” or, setting boundaries, becomes a natural outcome to honoring our priorities.

In this presentation, your will become clearer on:

  • What’s important to you
  • What’s blocking you from having more meaningful moments
  • How you can better integrate your values into all parts of your life

The outcome of this presentation is greater enjoyment and improved results from all parts of your life – including those that may present challenges to you. Happy people are more effective!
