Workshop One:

Yes And.....Improv in Leadership

9 am - 10:30 am in all locations includes continental breakfast.

How in the world do comedy improvisation techniques and leadership work together? So glad you asked. Effective leadership ensures that all have a voice and feel valued. Improv is about complimenting one another and making the other look good. When employees feel heard and believe that their input is valued, the positive results are limitless! But how is one valued if there is no space to share? No space to truly be heard? During this interactive session, Dr. Guillory will present 3 key improv techniques, how they compliment leadership, and how to implement as soon as you get back to the office!



Workshop Two

Heart and Art of Public Speaking

11 am - 12:30 pm in all locations includes lunch.

Public Speaking is an important skill for leaders and being able to captivate an audience, staff or colleagues can make tremendous impact to the organization. Dr. Guillory is an international speaker and trainer, a speaker coach and the founder of the The Heart, Art, and Business of Speaking Bootcamps and wants to teach you!  

 In this training participants will:

Workshop Three:

Networking: Much more than an exchange of business cards

1 pm - 2:30 pm in all locations includes lunch.

Traditional Networking might involve passing out business cards, giving your elevator pitch, talking about business only, and figuring out how you can benefit from this new connection. How can one truly connect during a narrow 5 minute conversation that is too often self focused? Authentic networking involves much more! It involves connection. It involves a genuine curiosity. In this session, Dr. Guillory will provide the 10 mistakes made in networking and the 10 things that actually should take place. Dr. Guillory will introduce authentic networking. E prepared to throw away what you know about networking  

Workshop Four

I don’t have time: The 20 minute productivity Challenge

3 pm - 4:30 pm in all locations includes snack break.

So you say you don't have time? Often times, it's not that we don't have's that we want a huge block of time like 1-3 hours. So when we can't find that amount of time....we don't move at all.  

In this session, Dr. Guillory will present 3 key components to productivity, will introduce a proven productivity strategy that involves just 20 minutes, and will give you the opportunity to practice!! By implementing these strategies, you’d be surprised about how much more you can get done!  


This SISGI Training Events Series Facilitated and Led By...

Kristen Guillory, PhD.

Dr. Guillory is a gifted speaker, talented writer and transparent story teller who uses her own life experiences to help bring out the best in others. ​

Dr. Kristen Guillory believes in the power of stories and that it’s OK not to be OK. She is the owner of a consulting firm, an executive and leadership coach, renowned professor, aunt, mental health specialist with the Second Chance Community Improvement Program and founder of many community initiatives including Cruisin with Cozy Convos. As an international speaker and trainer she uses her signature method that incorporates her own life experiences, contagious enthusiasm, dance and a touch of humor. She is also the author of Walking Through the Fog, Holding on to Hope When you Can't See the Sun and It's ok to take A Break: 52 tips on Self care and Mental Wellness.  

A Dallas native, she discovered her gift to encourage at the age of 14. Since then, she has created (or assisted in creating) over 60 youth and adult programs, had been a grant writer, professor at 4 universities, director of programs, program evaluator and more. She has mentored/coached/counseled hundreds and has been invited to present her research in Europe. Dr. Guillory has spoken to over 50,000 people and provided professional development training to Fortune 500 companies, Non profits, school districts and universities. And recently she has taken her trainings to Colombia.  

Dr. Guillory has broken many barriers from earning a PhD at 27 years old, being the only African American and woman who graduated with a PhD from her department that year, to teaching her first graduate class at 24 years old, to positions being created just for her and much more!  

She thought she knew where life would like her. And then 2013 happened.  

After experiencing a tragedy in 2013, her life changed and so did her goals. In 2014 she stepped away from an amazing professor position in faith. And the journey continues as she strives to be a catalyst for Healing, Hope and Purpose.  

She earned bachelor's degree from Texas Christian University, her masters degree and PhD in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington.
