Professional Speaker

We offer a number of keynote speech topics and short workshops depending upon the needs of our clients. All our programs are customized for the results the client wants.

The Universal Language of People Reading

Before we can understand our relationships with others, we must first understand ourselves.  – Bill Bonnstetter

In order to be successful in business or life today, individuals must possess good interpersonal skills. How to understand others begins by knowing oneself and recognizing your own strengths and potential weaknesses. This program is designed to give participants a “language” that will enable them to “read” others quickly and accurately in order to communicate more effectively. Effective communication is the basis for team building, leadership and trust.

Playing the Game By Learning the New Rules

It’s a whole new world out there with new playing fields, rules, and players. Your choice is either to learn the new game or continue to be the best player in a game that is no longer being played.  – Larry Wilson

When you were young, do you remember how great you felt when you won your first game of Jacks, Pickup Sticks or Monopoly? Now you’ve grown up and the game has changed – it’s called “The Game of Business.” Since you first started working, the rules of that game have changed. Today, “Getting in the Game” requires being able to work as a team player, taking personal responsibility and adding value to your company – in short, providing the human intellectual capital to keep your company competitive.

This program will teach participants the new rules of getting in and staying in the game by earning and giving endorsements. To earn endorsements, a person must first understand themselves, their own strengths and their weaknesses. By the end of this session, you will have a very clear understanding of just how great you are. Get ready to play this new game and win!

Short of Chaining Your Best Employees To Their Desks, What Else Can You Do To Keep Them?

In today’s world, most organizations are facing increased global competition, deregulation, downsizing and strategic repositioning. At the same time, they are trying to figure out how to utilize increased technology, deal with differing work ethics and lifestyles and meet customer demands that most of us would never have envisioned. Employee stress is reported to be at very high levels because of increased demands on their time by aging parents, children and spouses while simultaneously realizing the need for updating their skills in order to be of added value to the organizations that employ them. All of this requires an increased emphasis on people–both individually and collectively. Learn the ‘best practices’ companies are doing.

This program will focus on the fact that “we can’t solve today’s problems with last year’s models.” Job dissatisfaction is costing companies millions of dollars each year in turnover. Teaching individuals new models that can help them adapt to the rapid changes is the only answer. Organizations that cannot or will not invest and utilize new tools for better matching people to jobs and new strategies for keeping them will be facing a losing battle.

The Credibility Factor

You know you have earned credibility when someone else recommends your organization, products or services to someone else. What are the factors that enable a person or organization to earn this type of endorsement? How can you increase yours? Why should you care? “Performance – individually and organizationally – is directly proportional to the amount of endorsement an individual or company has achieved.” Without credibility and trust, you will always be required to provide additional data, documentation, references or price concessions in order to get the outcomes you desire.

Challenges And Choices – Your Personal Responsibility

“Life today is all about choices.” This course is designed to give participants a practical way in which to examine the old paradigms and create new ones – what is really important and how to manage those priorities. In doing so, participants will have more time and energy to do what they have determined is important to where they want to go. “What skills got you to where you are today are not going to be enough to keep you there.”

What are the waves of the future going to bring and how will you be able to recognize the new trends and learn to adapt? “We do not see the world the way it is; we see the world the way we think. ” In order to learn how to adapt to this rapidly changing world, we need to know how we process information and make decisions. Participants will analyze how they do things, why they do things and the impact these factors have on the quality of their lives.

Change Process

We’ve all heard the saying “Two things are certain: change and taxes.” Most people do not like change if it means they will have to do things differently. However, as Lester Thurow stated in 1998, “A competitive world offers two possibilities: You can lose. Or, if you want to win, you can change.” The Change Process looks at change from a practical and easy to understand perspective. It has been said that the skills that got you to where you are today are not going to be enough to keep you there. Learn what the skills for the future will be.

Misery Is Optional, It's Not A Byproduct of Living

Do you feel that you have reached your limit of technological change? Are you leaving work too tired to enjoy the rest of your life? This program is designed to give you very specific strategies that you can apply now to reduce the stress in your life. If you are ready to laugh your way towards putting pleasure back into your life, this is the program for you.

Learn what the 7 Immune Power Personality Factors are, why a good laugh can keep the doctor away, and how to recharge your own energy batteries when stressful events occur.
