I attended one of Fiona’s leadership seminars last year, and left feeling both enlightened and empowered. Exploring the many concepts surrounding leadership, and the path to become a leader, can be treacherous to navigate in a large-group setting. Fiona’s engaging and direct presentation style maintained a structured, yet personable experience for all of us who participated. Her approach to leadership embodies the courage, awareness, and tenacity required to not only succeed, but excel in today’s demanding and ever-changing business world.

On behalf of the Mother Attorney Mentoring Association (“MAMA Seattle”) I would highly recommend hiring Fiona McKay and Katie Duke to speak to your organization. We hired them to speak to our members on “Tools for Turbulence” and how to handle being lawyers and moms in the midst of the pandemic. I know we all left the one-hour presentation with concrete tools on how we can more effectively delegate and ask for help so that we can focus on our inner selves. But my favorite quote from the presentation was “I am not perfect, but I am fabulous.” It was a good reminder to keep things in perspective and to stop being your own worst critic. Thank you, Fiona and Katie. This was time and money well spent.

Transition to Leadership

The transition to management can be a daunting process. One day you are in control as the expert, then suddenly you must step back and embrace the power of the team. Success is no longer a solo game; trust, compassion and communication skills are essential to soar in this new paradigm. Ever heard the phrase ‘sink or swim?’ Unfortunately, many managers are left to figure it out for themselves – a lonely and often costly process. This workshop explores the mental and behavioral shifts that will enhance your ability to lead while providing tools to immediately implement and explore with your teams.

From New Recruit to High Flyer

An extension of our Transition To Leadership workshop, this 1-day session is designed to equip new employees with the essential skills and knowledge to accelerate their career growth and become high-performing individuals within their organization. Participants will explore the corporate landscape, develop core professional skills in communication, time management, and networking, and cultivate a growth mindset focused on continuous learning and self-improvement. Through interactive sessions, they will learn to navigate workplace challenges, embrace opportunities, and understand the roadmap that will enable them to step up to be leaders of the future.

Mastering Change Management

Change is key to the longevity of organizations, yet it continues to be cited as one of the biggest challenges faced by businesses. This comprehensive 1-day workshop on change management equips participants with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively navigate and lead organizational change. The workshop is structured into several key modules, each addressing crucial aspects of change management and delivered through a combination of teaching, interactive exercises and case studies.

Tools for Turbulence

Our current environment continues to send curveballs our way at an unprecedented rate. While unsettling, this has the potential to enable people to soar to new levels of success as we demonstrate our resilience and creativity in our new environment. This interactive workshop addresses the root cause of some of these challenges, provides personal strategies and tools to manage these headwinds, and transform turbulence into personal triumphs of all sizes. 

Courageous Conflict

Courage is often feared in the workplace, but can actually be an asset to an organixation. This workshop is designed to equip employees with the skills and mindset needed to effectively manage and harness the power of conflict in the workplace. Participants will learn to view conflict not as a hindrance, but as an opportunity for growth, innovation, and strengthened relationships. The workshop will cover essential conflict resolution techniques, including active listening, empathy, and assertive communication, enabling employees to address disagreements constructively and collaboratively, while learning how to navigate difficult conversations and transform potential disputes into productive dialogues.

Mentoring 101

This 1-day workshop, “Mentoring 101,” is designed to equip participants with the essential skills and knowledge to establish and maintain effective mentoring relationships. Participants will learn about the roles and responsibilities of mentors and mentees, criteria for matching, and techniques for setting SMART goals. Key communication skills, including active listening, providing feedback, and building trust, are emphasized alongside strategies for overcoming common mentoring challenges. Through case studies, role-playing, and practical exercises, attendees will gain hands-on experience that will support them far beyond the workshop.

Business Development, PR & Sales: It’s For Everyone

This workshop aims to demystify these critical functions and highlight how every employee’s actions can significantly impact sales and customer experience. Participants explore the interconnectedness of business development, public relations, and sales, and learn how their roles contribute to the organization’s growth and reputation. The workshop will cover key concepts in customer relationship management, effective communication, and brand advocacy, emphasizing that every interaction, no matter how small, can influence customer perceptions and buying decisions. 

Leading with Courage & Authenticity

This workshop is designed to empower leaders to embrace their true selves, and lead with integrity and boldness. Participants will explore the importance of authenticity in leadership, learning how to align their actions with their core values, inspiring trust and respect within their teams. The workshop delves into the concept of courageous leadership, encouraging leaders to face challenges head-on, make difficult decisions, and foster a culture of transparency and open communication. By the end of the session, leaders will be equipped with the tools and mindset needed to navigate the complexities of modern leadership with courage and authenticity.
