Happy 2024, Changemakers!

With the new year in full gear, I wanted to take a moment to share one of my favorite traditions:  finding a quote that resonates with me and that can also serve as a guide to those I care about. 

In that spirit and in the words of writer Neil Gaiman, here is my wish for you in 2024…

“Be kind to yourself in the year ahead. 

Remember to forgive yourself and to forgive others. It’s too easy to be outraged these days, so much harder to change things, to reach out, to understand.

Try to make your time matter: minutes and hours and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves, with nothing to show but time you spent not quite ever doing things, or time you spent waiting to begin.

Meet new people and talk to them. Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them. 

Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.”

Carrying forward the essence of this poem, I’m excited to share with you a couple of new services The Stacey Wedding Group is offering in 2024 to elevate your leadership journey and organization.

The Six Working Geniuses Workshops – Patrick Lencioni, best-selling author most known for The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, developed this productivity tool and assessment to help people discover their gifts and frustrations as it relates to work, and transform their teams with this knowledge. After being certified in this framework in 2023, and witnessing the positive impact it has had on a few of my clients and in my own work, I am now sharing it beyond my close inner circle.

The Stacey Wedding Group will be offering Working Genius workshops throughout the year for those interested in working smarter, not harder. And for those who want to dive deeper, we’re offering customized workshops for your team and follow-up consulting work to help implement the model throughout your organization. Drop us a line at [email protected] to learn more.

And be sure to register for the first introductory workshop on February 2nd! Learn more here

Keynote Speaking – Anyone who has planned a conference, event, or even a small donor gathering knows how tough it can be to find a speaker with heart and lived experience that will connect with your audience and not break the bank. To meet your needs, I’ve expanded my speaking beyond technical, educational topics and am now offering inspirational, motivational keynotes to reach the audiences you are looking to impact. 

Keynote offerings:

  • You Are More Than a Number: Living a Life of Significance
  • Build an Expansive Legacy: Discover Your Recipe for Giving Back
  • Transformational Leadership: No Big Title Required

And, as always, we’re here to support you with executive coaching, board training, governance consulting, and strategic planning. 

Hat tip to your success,
