  • 4 Dimensions of Leadership Reputation - - A 2010 study by CLC showed that "senior leader reputation can drive employee commitment by as much as 41%." A solid Leadership Reputation has an extraordinary effect on the amount of trust, credibility, respect and, ultimately, on the influence one has with others, regardless of their title, role or responsibility. This influence allows them to do more with less and to do it with more speed, efficiency and support. This is precisely what is required to ensure people follow their lead through periods of complexity, change and uncertainty that is increasingly becoming the reality of today.

    In this new and thought-provoking keynote, the 4 Dimensions of Leadership Reputation are explored:
    • The Sphere of Influence and how it affects your external reputation while being driven by...
    • Your internal reputation. What's your internal talk and what is making you approach or avoid difficult situations
    • Leading others with both heart and edge in order to drive the best results
    • And discovering the balancing act for all of the above in order to drive your leadership reputation

  • The Science Behind Great Leaders - What do highly effective leaders do differently? Is there a science to great leadership? The answer is yes, and the key is learning the science of managing emotions. According to a recent Harvard study, Emotional Intelligence is the greatest driver of success in Leadership.

    You will learn:
    • Why Emotional Intelligence (EQ) counts for more than IQ in leadership performance.
    • The 2 key reasons individuals get promoted and achieve results.
    • The brain science of emotions that drive our behavior.
    • That emotions are infectious - and how to unleash best performance and not sabotage it!
    • Techniques you can apply immediately to make you more effective as a leader.

  • Emotional Intelligence and Being Your Best When It Matters Most - Working in a high pressure environment puts enormous strain on individuals - especially those who are leading teams in high change, high expectation environments. It can cause good people to have impact they don't intend. It can sabotage an individual's performance and well-being and negatively influence their leadership impact. It doesn't have to be this way.

    In this powerful program, individuals are going to learn cutting edge research into performance and leadership in order to shape their reality in the midst of change and pressure. They will gain both deep insight and specific tools to lead in the midst of pressure and difficult situations. In this highly interactive session, your team (or audience) will learn how to grow their careers and themselves in order to contribute to the business and their people in a more significant way. They will leave with a renewed sense of energy and confidence, a greater sense of "what's possible" and the real tools to get them there.

  • High Performance Sales What makes a successful sales person? It's not their IQ, education or even product knowledge. They need to have a certain amount of these, but what sets the high performers apart from the average is their ability to deal with setbacks and connect with clients.

    You will learn:
    • The 2 key qualities that differentiate the top 20% of sales people.
    • How to be resilient in the face of setbacks and adversity.
    • How to connect to the emotional needs of your clients.
    • High performance techniques used by Olympic medalists, professional athletes and by Bill himself!
    • What customers buy and why that should change the way you sell.

  • How To Develop High Performing Teams - Teams with high levels of EQ consistently outperform those with strong IQ. Why? To a large degree, it is a result of intelligently handling 'difficult to manage' emotions. Emotions, not handled properly, can lead to a breakdown where the simplest tasks end up taking more energy than required, resulting in not only impaired innovation, but a diminished ability to solve key business issues.

    You will learn:
    • In this highly interactive, activity-based keynote, the keynote speaker focuses your audience on:
    • Exercises that challenge a participant's Emotional Intelligence
    • Bringing greater clarity to the blockers of team performance (such as default behaviors that impact other team members in a negative way)
    • Courageous Conversations - how and when to have them
    • Learning to hold each other accountable to the task
    • And how to create a proper environment that will improve a team's working relationship
