Embracing Change – With Eyes Wide Open!
By Ken Betterton, MPA
Come to this energetic, fast-paced, four hour workshop and encounter the excitement of embracing change. You will immediately receive the valuable principles employees need to become dynamically vested into your vision of the future. Change leads to success or OPPORTUNITY!
Why do people focus on fear, frustration, and anxiety of change? Learn obstacles, identify negatives of the status quo as they apply to change and discard them! Functioning within the status quo has never led individuals, groups or organizations into the future. Failing to embrace change equates to slow death and stifles creativity.
Educating your staff and creating a motivated and passionate approach to leading the team into the future means success. Your employees can recognize through your leadership the value of change: Focus on what is important, build strengths, become educated, explore new methods, new problem solving sills, build self confidence and allow flexibility!
Embracing Change – With Eyes Wide Open!
Ken Betterton’s KB-9 Coaching:
“True leadership is the development of others”
This program is designed for those who are in a position to influence, guide, direct and develop others, who are aspiring to lead others better. Building and retaining high-quality relationships founded on trust and support drive organizational success.
The objective of “KB-9 Coaching” is to shorten your learning curve so that you can be a more effective leader and coach starting now. The program increases your effectiveness in your role as a leader and deepens your understanding of the honor of serving others.
High-performance leaders who emerge into positions of authority possess the ability to coach, mentor, develop, and motivate those around them. Coaching is an indispensable skill that is an attribute of high-performance leaders to take the organization to the next level, retain and grow the talent in the workforce, correct unproductive behavior, and evolve a positive “people first” culture into the organization.
To become a Self-less Coach is to step upon the spiritual high ground of leadership. –Ken Betterton

Ken Betterton’s “You, the Inspired Motivator”
Tomorrow, start with the “Kenny Test”, how motivated are you?
The vital functions of a leader are vast and numerous, though none is more important than the ability to motivate others. During his program, Ken Betterton pushes individuals to discover their purpose.
For many, this may seem like a simple task, however, motivation is not easy to learn. According to Ken Betterton, this has a lot to do with the fact that lack of motivation and fear go hand in hand. Ego often gets involved, and gets in the way of progress because of the all-too-common “fear of failure.”
Ken explains: “100% of people experience fear, and 90% of this fear is fancied (meaning self-imposed fear).” He believes that the reflective self is only as good as the thoughts within each individual.
In Ken’s words, “what you think about is what you become, so what are you thinking about?” He believes that positive, hopeful high-energy thoughts equal a successful future because you begin to “live positively.”
During this four-hour workshop participants will learn:
- To understand and define motivation
- The guidance necessary to enter a deeper understanding of self
- Encouragement to look at your personal strengths, goals, and vision
- The eight-step model to motivate others
- The joy and satisfaction of motivating and developing others
This course is an absolute must for people in leadership or new to leadership. To take the individual, team, organization, and our nation to a state of effective productivity one must be motivated, possessing a sense of well being, sense of significance, and hope for a better tomorrow. “Think it, see it, feel it, then and only then you live it.”
Ken Betterton’s “From One of Us to One of Them”
A new leader’s guide to success
The old saying that they have gone “from one of us to one of them,” is a statement that is all too often the perception of one’s working peers. They no longer fit in with the line-level employees and have jumped ship heading to become the dreaded “One of Them.” They are part of the evil empire destined to unbalance the inner peace of all who report to them.
The real question is do they see the opportunity provided and have a plan designed to transition and succeed in leadership?
This program targets individuals who are emerging into leadership positions from the ranks to becoming managers of others or manager of managers. It provides people new to a supervisory role a clear understanding of the true meaning of leadership; service to others.
Ninety percent of what we do as leaders is the “People Stuff,” yet it is the least trained and educated for. In this day and age for leaders to influence, they must possess the ability to manage their emotions and their day-to-day relationships, establish and maintain their credibility, be viewed as trusting and trustworthy.
The leader of today must possess the ability to communicate effectively with all the different personalities and generations. Last but not least it is imperative they manage the adversity that will eventually come to themselves and those they are responsible for.
This powerful presentation is laced with proven concepts anchored by Ken Betterton’s personal experiences to ensure your journey into leadership is successful and accelerated. If you will put serious thought into the following ideas Ken presents, gain a solid understanding of the principles, and place the concepts into action, this workshop will guarantee your transition and build you a solid foundation to launch from.
The workshop consists of the following topics:
- Start Coaching now
- Developing Others
- Establishing Credibility
- Trust and Communication
- The Art of Influencing Change
- Self Discovery
- Self Re-invention
- Inspired Leadership (Self-less)
The full workshop is 4 hours in length; an abbreviated workshop can be provided in 2 hours; and Ken Betterton also has a powerful and moving Keynote (90 minutes).
