COLETTE CARLSON PROGRAMS & TOPICS

UP YOUR CONNECTION QUOTIENT

In order to make a sale and earn a customer, you must first make a connection. Wider and deeper relationships lead to increased sales, repeat customers, and powerful referrals. As a former national sales trainer who cut her teeth in straight commission sales, Colette will show you how to up your personal connection quotient to maximize relationships, revenue, and results. In her customized presentations, she speaks to specific behaviors and phraseology that support your goal to engage, persuade, and influence others, while still promoting you and your services honestly, assertively, and authentically.

THE CONNECTED LEADER

Successful leaders understand the nuances in communication that make a big difference when inspiring action and cooperation. Leaders know the power of their words and understand that words alone do not generate trust, allegiance, and loyalty. Connection is the glue that keeps relationships, projects, and organizations together. A leader must be authentic and exhibit the behaviors conveyed in their message
to maintain respect for their authority. Advance your communication style, increase your credibility, earn respect, and gain support.

MANY COMMUNICATE, FEW CONNECT

The common denominators of the most successful people are the ability to effectively communicate and connect, regardless of the situation or audience. In a competitive world filled with a global workforce, numerous communication channels, and daily digital distractions, getting your message heard has never been more challenging. Clear, concise communication is no longer enough to get results: connection must be part of the equation. Productivity lessens, collaboration stalls, accountability suffers, and conflict and stress escalate when even the simplest of miscommunication occurs. Without connection, these outcomes are only heightened. Connect and communicate on a deeper level to form crucial relationships that drive productivity, engagement, and collaboration.

STRESS LESS

The truth is whether you are in leadership, sales, or the front line, you are expected to produce more in less time with fewer resources, while staying positive and and connected with colleagues, customers and clients. The reality is we are all stressed out, tightly wound, and exhausted trying to meet and exceed expectations. People have the best intentions that seem to go out the window before lunch as they are constantly changing schedules, demands, and priorities. Enough already! Create the focus, energy, and mindset necessary to make healthy choices and stay connected to those who count. It’s no longer about time management, it’s about YOU management. Get ready to laughout loud and walk away ready to make positive, long-lasting change the next day. Customized for every audience.
