Own the Moment: How to Shift Your Brilliance & Change the World

This is a call to embrace change, create better ways of thinking, and produce results. “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.” That safe perspective comes from the father of modern physics, Albert Einstein. In one concise sentence, Einstein pinpointed the shift we need to make in our thinking to create brilliant moments. Read More >

The reality is that anyone that has made an impact or left an indelible imprint refused to settle for the status quo. Business are being forced to adapt to the “new normal,” talent is being re-examined for relevancy and results. Best practices must move over and give way to best ideas. We exist at this moment in time to create the future.

Shift Your Brilliance: How to Lead, Engage & Grow in the Next Decade

Stale…stuck…spiritless. That is what an organization, team, leader or individual becomes when mojo is lost. Simply launching anything in this hypersensitive, over-communicative world isn’t enough anymore. Read More >

Announcing to the world that you are new and improved doesn’t guarantee long-term results. Everyone inside the organization is waiting for sparks to fly and to be launched into the stratosphere. Yet, in a few months’ time, reality sets in and the brand “star” comes crashing back to earth.

To reinvigorate and ignite a fresh mindset that enables yourself, your company, your customers, your employees to achieve the determined goals, you must stop communicating and start connecting.

This starts with an emerging leader making an emotional commitment to bring out the best in themselves and then doing the same in everyone around them. This challenges team members to raise the bar on their engagement and productivity. The ultimate benefactor of this SHIFT in thinking are customers who opt-in to become your brand champions.

As a result of participating in this program, participants will be able to:

  • Examine everything they do and ask if they are creating a sustainable future that engages everyone around them – themselves, their team, their stakeholders and their customers.
  • Identify the best thinking to start what is necessary, stop what is no longer relevant, and continue what is working.
  • Create a deeper sense of personal accountability by transferring emotional ownership to everyone around them.
  • Apply the “shift mindset” that aligns heads, hearts, and hands to achieve results.

The two competencies that participants will improve during this interactive presentation are: Read Less ^

  • Awareness and Insight – the ability to assess ones’ owns strengths; understand how actions impact perceptions; effectively maneuver the culture, climate and politics of the organization at all levels.
  • Initiative – the habit of proactively seeking new opportunities and challenges; the skill to take ownership and be accountable for enhancing results or minimizing problems.

Customer Love: Realigning Heads, Hearts & Hands to Deliver Results

Connections, real connections, results in genuine customer loyalty. Earning the trust and respect of your client or prospective client is no easy task. In today’s information age, the competition for goods and services is even greater and the end consumer not only has more options, but access to vast information about potential offerings.

Building relationships and earning your customer’s love is more important than ever and requires a village. Are your employees fully invested in your thinking and service standards? Building an internal team that is focused on the company’s mission and dedicated to excellence requires leadership that has earned trust and respect.

Our Process: To create a memorable experience we would like to have a conference call with key stakeholders, conduct pre-keynote interviews with meeting attendees, and use concepts from Simon’s book Shift Your Brilliance published by SoundWisdom, and his work with over 1,000 organizations over the last 12 years.
