The Joy Team - How Optimism Connects, Motivates and Engages

The major disruptor to collaborative teams, joy filled workplaces and high production, sales and service is ‘stinking thinkin’ as Zig Ziglar used to say! The stories people tell themselves about themselves, their colleagues, customers, bosses and the company determines their behaviour.

This presentation helps people understand how to be conscious and mindful of their thinking and stories - and how to change them. And more importantly, why to change them. The formula T+ S = F …thinking (stories) + speaking = feeling - rules everything.

The Spirit of Leadership

If you want to change an organization, you have to lead with a change of heart—a change of spirit. The spirit in which we do anything determines the outcome, whether positive or negative. People are no longer a company's most important asset; the spirit in which they do things is! People with a positive spirit are inspired, motivated, excited about what they do, and create strong, lasting relationships. Once our hearts are engaged in what we are doing, and we see what we do as fulfilling work—not just as a job, then how we work is transformed. This purpose-/spirit-driven culture is the culture of the future. The new generations are demanding it, Baby Boomers are seeking it, and everyone wants it! This keynote radically affects group dynamics—it breaks down barriers so that learning, networking, and connection continue not only during the meeting, but for the long term. This session is full of techniques that will help leaders:

  • Bring out people's positive spirits.
  • Inspire them to change or handle any business challenge creatively.
  • Motivate them to be their best and create collaborative teams.

You Can't Change a Customer's Attitude, but You Can Change Yours

Traditional sales courses focus on communication styles and techniques that are still important but everyone knows them.

There are many secrets to enhancing rapport, connection, and delivering unpalatable messages without destroying relationship as well as building ongoing loyalty with customers or clients. All relate to our ability to communicate and connect. This session explores how to find out what our clients really want, at much deeper levels than before, which then allows us to serve their real needs better than our competitors—and with more flexibility, options and choices.
