The Edge Effect
Successfully navigating changing environments
Do you sometimes think our business world is moving so fast you'll get motion sickness?
If there is one constant in our lives it is change. In fact, Robert Gallagher once said 'change is inevitable except from a vending machine'. The curious thing is that some species, businesses and people achieve enormous success in the same change environment where others flounder, and in some cases, become extinct. The Edge Effect helps us take a new look at change, the uncertainty that comes with it, and ultimately how we can succeed.
A perfect keynote if your business, organisation or association is facing major changes, both internally and externally.
Dealing With The Tough Stuff
How to achieve results in crucial conversations
Ever put off having a feedback conversation because it seemed too hard?
Have you ever lost sleep over a workplace conversation that didn't go well?
Ever wanted to learn how to handle sensitive situations more effectively?
Managing staff performance and building a positive feedback culture are essential elements for any successful leadership role. The litmus test of your leadership is not how you lead when times are good, it's how you lead when times are tough.
This keynote or workshop will give you an array of tools to lead and manage better in those defining conversations; the inevitable tough conversations. Perfect for a breakout workshop session for leaders at a conference.
