The Positive Accountability workshop that you delivered was exactly what we were looking for. Your high-energy presentation style was very engaging and helped the participants remain attentive and involved. The activities utilized real-life examples that helped our team members apply the concepts back on the job. Thank you for helping us to move from 'bench warming' to 'stepping up to the plate.'

The real win for us is your focus on Accountability. It's so easy to find excuses that get in our way. We regularly use your concepts to recognize 'bench-warming' behaviors and to prompt us to 'step up to the plate.' It's become part of our culture.

Speak Up and Be Heard: 
How to Present Yourself So People Will Listen 
  Have you ever felt frustrated that people just aren't hearing you?  Is it them or you? 
Yes, people are in a hurry;  memos are too long;  email is overwhelming;  and the 
average person's attention span is only about 30 seconds.  But they are listening 
to someone.  It might as well be you. 
Format:  45-90 minute Keynote,  half-day Workshop,  or full-day Workshop*
  What is your "sound bite" when you speak?  Is your thinking clear and concise?  If they remembered nothing else at the end of your "presentation," what do you want them to take away?  Whether you are on the phone, on a team conference call, speaking at a large group presentation, or just answering a question at a project meeting, you need to create a "key message" that the audience will understand and respond to.  And you need to deliver it in 30 seconds or less;  be clear in your mind;  demonstrate visual animation;  and use your voice to get their attention and keep it until they "get it."
What You Will Learn:
  • Grab their attention from the beginning
  • Identify a clear "key message" and stay with it
  • Engage your audience and check for understanding
  • Develop a strong "radio voice" that people want to listen to
  • Be clear and informative or persuasive, according to the need
  • Answer questions concisely and with confidence
Audience:      Individual contributors and managers who want to be more effective and comfortable
speaking and sending clear messages.
*Full-day Workshop format can include optional videotaping of participants, for practice sessions.
