Intelligent, successful individuals choose to learn from the mistakes of others instead of waiting to hit rock bottom for themselves.

Following are descriptions of some of Christy's past keynotes followed by a partial listing of some of the subjects she has explored in prior engagements:

Organizational Excellence

How do you make your company (team or department) the best it can be?

We don’t typically hear new business owners say, “ I hope to start a mediocre company that hovers around the middle of the pack before fading away into obscurity.” From public perception and employee satisfaction to the financial standing of your company, all companies aspire to be excellent. Successful companies have a few common traits that they exhibit every day. This course will discuss five such traits and ways to make sure your company eats, sleeps, and lives those traits in all day to day decisions.

Personal Effectiveness

How do you become your best self for a specific organization?

You have a similar background, skill set, and drive as your co-worker but they seem to constantly get promotions, accolades, and choice assignments—why is that? Before we look to reasons like favoritism, seniority or other factors that we can’t control, let’s look at how well we truly understand the culture (personality) of that organization, how they define success (outside of what is said), and all the other unwritten rules that actually determine what each of us need to do every day at work. Learning to understand and work within a company’s culture is essential to true success; this course will teach you how to do just that.

Big Girls Don't Cry

Can you succeed—and maintain your sanity and happiness as the multi-tasking employee, supervisor, business owner, partner, wife, mother, and domestic engineer that we all have to be?

We’ve all heard the term mother’s guilt, we’ve all seen the statistics on the glass ceiling, we all know that there is an on-going debate about women who “want it all,” but how do we take all of that information and write our own story of success and balance? This seminar will provide humor, personal experiences, and important information on defining success in your own terms and achieving it “in a man’s world.” From writing a personal mission statement to knowing when to say, “No” (and when to say, “Heck Yes!”) learn tangible skills to become the YOU you have always wanted to be.

Business Diversity

Wouldn’t the world be a better place if everyone was just like me?

Everyone has their own definition of diversity and their own reason why it does or doesn’t work, but deep down most of us think that the world would be a little better off if everyone just saw things our way. We all strive to be confident, competent, and consider ourselves successful so when people look, act or talk differently than we do our first impulse may be, “why are they doing it that way.” We’ll work to not only define diversity in business terms but go on to identify the business justification for it and ways to make it work for everyone in real life.

What others are saying

I was very fortunate to attend the Diversity Summit at the Renaissance Convention Center! It was such an awesome event and I walked away with so much! If you've never attended one of these events, keep it on your radar for next year. It's worth it! Our newest 'Women Business Owners of Montgomery' member, Christy M. Pruitt-Haynes closed out the day with an amazing session entitled 'We wrote the Diversity Policy...isn't that enough???'. I have to say, Christy is a phenomenal speaker! Her message, in itself, was powerful and thought provoking, but it was her delivery that kept the audience engaged! If you haven't heard one of Christy's lectures, she is one to add to your company's next seminar agenda! Kudos Christy
