  • Shift Your Brilliance: Harness The Power Of You, Inc. - Are you waiting for your company or organization to do something? Well, guess what: they are waiting for you to take ownership. The adult daycare center is closed and you are now responsible for developing yourself and producing results.

    Business change is moving at the speed of light and to keep pace your organization needs you to be your own career architect. But what is driving this line of thinking? Technology clearly is playing the biggest role. McKinsey & Company forecasts by 2025 automation technology innovations will assume tasks now performed by 250 million knowledge workers worldwide, freeing the remaining workforce to devote time and energy to more creative pursuits.

    Whether you hold a leadership position or not, repositioning yourself to revitalize your role within your current team or company is a powerful tool for professional development and rapid career growth. You will learn Simon's strategies for staying relevant in every economy. Upon completion of this experience, learning participants will emerge from this highly interactive session with a plan of action to:
    • Apply core principles for acquiring the Shift Your Brilliance mindset
    • Uncover the insight needed to be a high performer
    • Commit to being a Chief Breakthrough Officer in their department and division

    Simon has a repository of relevant articles, videos and resources to reinforce this learning experience beyond the keynote or workshop. Furthermore, after the keynote, he can provide 12 weeks of content reinforcing key learnings from the session.

  • Releasing Leadership Brilliance: How to Empathize, Engage and Elevate Your Culture - Stale. Stuck. Spiritless. This is what a leader, then a team, and ultimately a business becomes when mojo is lost. In order for leaders to ignite a fresh mindset that enables a team and a business to thrive, they must stop simply communicating and start connecting.

    Connection begins when leaders make a commitment to bring out the best in themselves and everyone around them. This challenges team members to raise their engagement and productivity. The ultimate benefactors of this shift in thinking are customers who opt-in to become your brand champions. Upon completion of this experience, learning participants will emerge with a plan of action to:
    • Revitalize their role within their team and line of business
    • Improve their ability to connect with their team instead of just communicating
    • Create a high-performing team that exceeds expectations

  • Shift Your Brilliance: Stop Selling and Start Connecting - The Gallup Organization states that 70 percent of human decision-making is emotional and 30 percent is rational. When buyers emotionally connect with a brand, they buy more, pay a higher margin, and tell others about their experience. It is imperative for sales professionals to stop selling and start connecting. When they sell, that's a transaction. However, when they connect, a relationship is created for the life of the brand.

    This shift in selling has tremendous upside potential as organizations experience disruptive market forces, a change in client needs, and unseen economic headwinds. Sales professionals who intend to grow market share by acquiring new customers and increasing margins from existing customers must examine their sales edge. Upon completion of this session, your sales team will be inspired to:
    • Shift from selling to live to living to sell by creating a personal brand that attracts new opportunities and establishes credibility in the marketplace.
    • Shift from telling customers about features and benefits to asking high-grade questions that unearth other potential opportunities.
    • Shift from just selling a service to fulfilling the customer's wants and needs including how to set up internal team members for success by providing a seamless and consistent customer experience.

  • Customer Love: Realign Heads, Hearts and Hands to Drive Results - Connections, real connections, result 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.

    Are your employees fully invested in your thinking and service standards? Because building relationships and earning your customer's love is more important than ever and requires a village. Building an internal team that is focused on the company's mission and dedicated to excellence requires trusted and respected leadership. Upon completion of this course, participants will emerge from this highly interactive session with a plan of action to:
    • Discover the formula for creating a seamless customer experience.
    • Create memorable moments for customers.
    • Create an action plan and hold everyone accountable for maintaining the customer-love mindset.
