Thinking Strategies of Extraordinary Leaders

As a leader, your thinking has a greater impact on your team and your business results than any other factor. This is why examining and sharpening your thinking is vital for attaining the outstanding levels of success that you are aiming for. The process requires you to understand how your thinking has both propelled you forward and yet still often holds you back while deliberately building the muscle that keeps you moving toward your goals.

In this workshop, you will literally begin to see and capture how your thinking is affecting your outcomes and learn how to stretch your mind muscle and challenge your self-imposed limitations to reflect the thinking and practices of today’s most accomplished leaders. You will walk away with tangible strategies for overcoming your biggest leadership obstacles. Come prepared to be challenged! You are guaranteed to see the world through a new lens – the lens of a phenomenal leader.

Attendees will:

  • Discover the single most important factor that leads to success.
  • Learn to quickly identify what differentiates extraordinary performers and others.
  • Understand what it takes to develop and leverage the strengths of key leaders, employees and teams.
  • Explore and experience strategic techniques to challenge yourself and your team in order to drive higher levels of performance.
  • Be energized with new perspectives and strategies to implement in your own environments and become confident about your ability to drive significant change.

The Great Leadership Predicament

We’ve reached the tipping point in the way corporations spend money in leadership development and training.  Unfortunately, companies are still not getting the results they are looking for. In 2017 alone, over $300 billion was spent on leadership training.  However, it has been proven time and time again that leaders struggle to apply what they have learned in training and have a hard time retaining the material over time.  The big predicament is that no matter how much money is spent on training, change does not occur.

In this presentation, Kim will discuss how to create sustainable change in organizations.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why training programs miss the boat and how to address this problem.
  • How to quickly identify what interferes with extraordinary performance.
  • The single most important personal character trait that leads to success.
  • Three of the top thinking strategies of phenomenal leaders and the impact of these strategies on creating change.
  • The 5 key components required for sustainable change to occur.

This highly interactive session (that might even include a splash zone) is ideal for executives, business unit leaders, corporate learning professionals, and visionaries who are disgruntled with the status quo and are champions of change in their organizations.



What People Are Saying

I was fortunate enough to see Kim present at a Strategic Human Resources conference in a room of 900 people. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. She has a way of getting to the heart of things and touching people in a very human way that is irresistible and that you can’t help but relate to.

Deputy Chief Officer, Corrections and Rehab Division, Min. of Home Affairs, Cayman Islands

Kim Ades’s talk at the PMI NYC Symposium was nothing short of inspiring. The attendees were made up of highly accomplished project managers with years of experience directing the activities of major companies in and around New York City. They can be a tough audience to say the least, but Kim completely captured them with her energy, thought-provoking questions and live participation. Everyone walked away with a valuable insight and a deeper understanding of how we impose limitations on ourselves instead of flying free towards our goals.

Mahesh Chhatlani

Project Manager, Project Management Institute

Kim Ades was my favorite of all of your speakers. She is the kind of inspiring person that I think people really go to conferences to see. She is a very likeable and genuine person, by the end of her talk I felt I could do whatever I set my mind to. People left the room buzzing about her and I know that some people I talked to who didn’t get to see her were very disappointed once they heard what the participants were saying. I think she would fill a large room next year, I would definitely see her again if she was back.

Dear Kim: You were absolutely awesome! And for the next two days, your presentation continued to be a highlight of many conversations.

Dawne Hickton

President, International Titanium Association

Kim Ades’s mind-altering techniques turned our thinking on its head when she challenged us to confront the assumptions we make, even subconsciously, and to understand how they can limit us. ‘There’s what you really, really want… and then there’s what you think you want,’ she explained, encouraging us to identify the core priorities that drive our choices.

Bonnie Oppenheimer

I think that Kim is incredibly wise, thorough, practical and passionate about clients receiving awesome results. Thank you for making things so clear!

Nicki McClusky

Coach, Find Your Voice

Kim Ades’s coaching approach and delivery methods have made an amazing impact on me in a short period of time. The information I received from the presentation has greatly improved my perception of how I should interact with my leaders, as well as ways that I can develop personally and professionally.

Kim was intellectually intoxicating. Now there’s a coach with passion about her offering!

Steve Borek

Coach, End Game Business

I attended Kim’s online talk at the GWALS and was absolutely blown away by her deep expertise on the topic of self-limiting beliefs (and how our life is a reflection of our thinking), as well as by her energy and her style. I was genuinely thankful for such a beautiful and “deep reflection-triggering” conversation.

Laurence Vindevoghel

Head Global Medical Affairs, Acino

As a podcast producer and host, I’ve interviewed over 700 guests, including New York Times Bestselling Authors, self-help gurus and Academy Award Winners. Kim Ades was definitely a standout guest for me. I had her on both of my podcasts, and it was a wonderful experience. Kim provided valuable content for my listeners and focused on serving the needs of the show. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a guest who is engaging, entertaining and offers great insights and takeaways about how to change your life by changing your thinking. She has my highest recommendation.

Doug Foresta

Podcast Producer and Host, Creating Change

As one of the top shows in iTunes, the Art of Charm podcast has access to top-talent, so I know it when I see it. Kim Ades is not only a great interviewee, but she actually became one of my mentors in my own quest for growth. She will deliver to your audience and to you as well.

Every once in awhile, you get an expert guest who is so good that you feel compelled to just hand the entire radio hour over to her. It’s rare, but it does happen. That would be Kim Ades of Frame of Mind Coaching. Kim is so insightful and enlightening that she can transform anyone in just a matter of minutes. Drawing upon her own experiences and wisdom, she has a knack for showing others how to look within for their own inspiration. Oh, and she’s funny to boot.
Ally Loprete

Host, This Little Parent Stayed Home

I have listened to many of Kim’s podcast interviews and have been able to adopt many of her practical ideas to help me tackle life’s daily challenges. Instead of being trapped in my old habits, I get a sense of forward momentum and focus to move me towards my goals. I believe she is a fully dedicated and skilled coach with a sensitive and intuitive approach. She has a passion to help people create the lives that they want in a fun and energetic way, and I am grateful for how she has helped me.
Sherrye Blitzer Mosoff

Founder, Mindful Life

Kim Ades says she wasn’t always the outgoing entrepreneur you see today. She was once a very shy child who would sit at her bedroom window watching other children play. After interviewing her on my podcast, I have to say it’s hard to believe!

An outgoing individual with an enthusiasm for life, learning and teaching others how to live a more fulfilled life, Kim was a delight to have on the show. Her refreshingly honest voice kept my attention as I’m sure it kept that of our listeners.

J. Massey

Host, Cash Flow Diary

I have been honored to have Kim on my radio show twice. Both times she was a great guest and I love her message. She is right! We are all hostages to thoughts and it can be destructive. We have the ability to change our thoughts and therefore our actions and lives. Kim is a powerhouse of change.

Jim Beech

Host, School of Startups Radio

Please pass on to Kim my deep appreciation for her presentation today.  We discussed it at length after lunch and the overall feedback was extremely positive.  Many placed her as the best presenter we have had this year.  Words they used to describe the presentation and Kim included: Very good/Powerful/Knew how to tune into each person/Excels at this/ the 5 Action Steps are a great tool.
