The ultimate success of your change initiative is not driven only by the quality of your solution or idea. It's driven by the level of acceptance among those who are impacted by the change. While we like to believe that decisions are based on data, that's simply not true. In order to lead successful change, you must navigate the emotions of change.
We're in an era of information overload, trying desperately to manage a growing volume of incoming and outgoing communications. If your audience is distracted, will they read your email? Or contribute in your meeting? To engage your audience, start with a purpose, then tailor messaging and communication channel accordingly.
Today's audiences are busy, distracted and tired. Traditional presentation techniques are guaranteed to bore them to sleep. If you want to grab your audience's attention, keep them listening and influence their decisions, you need to toss traditional presentation techniques aside and
start to swim upstream!
Although we like to believe that we make data-driven decisions, neuroscience proves that we make decisions in the emotional brain. To effectively influence others and achieve long-term commitment, you must offer your audience rational arguments, emotional appeal, and most importantly ... a clear ask!

Enhance productivity, decrease burnout and maximize collective results with a Working Genius workshop!
Culture is an invisible influence that shapes the way we interact with others. Unspoken values shared within country and company are often so implicit that we "just expect" others to share our beliefs. And when they don't ... we judge. Don't let your team fall prey to needless conflict! Give them the tools they need to understand, adjust and collaborate across cultures.
Based on Erin Myer's Culture Map
We instinctively know that everyone has different communication styles. Yet, we still tend to judge others through the lens of our own preferences, creating unnecessary conflict within teams. The Communicate & Connect with DiSC® workshop helps you read others' styles, find value in their way, then adjust your approach to better connect, collaborate and communicate with everyone in your world - in and out of work.
