Leadership & Engagement

PERFORMANCE

“Performance by Design”

        

Too often, theories of high performance are informed by corporate clichés and business BS rather than practical and cohesive strategies. Alternatively,  we will often put ourselves down or prop ourselves up - relying on the carrot and stick method of motivation.

However, research tells us that not only are these short term strategies (at best), they are often counter productive and “de-motivating”.

In this powerful and transformative presentation & workshop, Dan Gregory will demonstrate how design beats discipline when it comes to motivation and how we can hack & harness the power of our own human nature.

 

PERFORMANCE DESIGN

 

Identify the breakage points in your performance

Create a bias towards success & away from failure

Conduct an "Un-SWOT" and turn your weaknesses into assets

PURPOSE

“Beyond WHY”

 

Today, leaders are critically aware of how purpose drives culture, performance, engagement, recruitment and even better customer outcomes. 

So what does it take to not only lead your organisation or team, but to shape the future of your entire industry?

This is the question that Dan will answer in this timely and exciting presentation & workshop. He’ll give you the tools you need to navigate the intersection between your strategic purpose, values-driven behaviours and shared beliefs and outline the role we all play in creating environments where “cultures of the willing” can emerge and grow.

 

PURPOSE DRIVEN POSITIONING

 

Discover the "4 Stands" that define your leadership

Learn how culture & purpose attract and retain top talent

Build trust through behaviour design and “story-doing”

Drive attraction, alignment and engagement

PERSUASION

“The Art of Influence”

 

What makes us buy? What makes us buy in? These two questions float around the minds of leaders, sales people and marketers like a kind of mental screen saver. 

And yet much of our understanding of human behaviour, influence and persuasion is clichéd, unreliable and ego-centric.

In this insightful & highly practical presentation & workshop, Dan will reveal the psychology of human engagement and how we can be more persuasive in our face to face communication, when presenting to stakeholders or our team and, of course, in our sales and marketing.

 

PITCH, PRESENT & PERSUADE

 

Understand the force that drives all human behaviour

Identify the the filters we use to make meaning

• Create loyal evangelists through “story selling”

Pitch, present & persuade with greater influence
