Session FOrmat

Topics Covered

  • Purpose - Everybody is fueled by a "Why".  This is our purpose.  It's what gets us out of bed in the morning and helps us push through when things get tough.  Understanding your purpose and how it drives you is the first step in maximizing your potential.
  • Mindset - We have all had days where we just don't feel on.  Our confidence may be rattled or our blinded by doubt. Learning to refocus and reach beyond the doubts and questions is crucial to sustained success.
  • Communication - What we communicate and how we communicate plays an important role in how people perceive what we say and who we are.  Learn the keys to clear, concise communication and maximize your ability to influence those around you.
  • Leadership - Leadership is much more than being the one "In Charge." True leaders are most successful when they can get everybody to buy into a plan of action and work towards a common goal. Learn the traits that differentiate leaders from bosses.
  • Building Relationships - Friends, family, co-workers, even customers; it's pretty universally understood that we can accomplish more when we aren't alone. Learn the keys to identifying and building strong, supportive relationships that help you succeed.
  • Sales & Marketing - Sales and marketing is more than just a communication skill or an influence skill. The reality is, no matter what our role, we are always selling.  Sometimes its a product to outsiders.  Other times its our own ideas to to our team or managers. Learn the skills that take your sales game to the next level.
  • Influence - Influence isn't about getting your way.  It's about getting those around you to internalize the changes of course or actions you propose in a way that engages them as an advocate and brings them on board with a plan. Learn how to cultivate influence.
  • Time Management - Time is a finite asset.  There are only so many hours in a day.  To get the most our of your time you have to be able to differentiate between what only you can do, what can be delegated, and what actions may be dependent upon others.  Learn the keys to effective time management.
