What Michelle will be covering at the event:
In this insightful and highly interactive session (a shortened version of her keynote) Michelle will share tried, tested and proven business growth formulas which help people to transform from simply communicating with colleagues, customers and suppliers to truly connecting with them, often with measurable results.
This session is relevant if you or members of your team:
- have fantastic ideas but can't convince others of their merit
- craft ground-breaking strategies, but the team trudges on in the same old way
- feel certain people appear to move forward in their career while you seem to be stuck
- want to build strong relationships with your current and future customers with ease
The problem is not usually the quality of what you offer, it is how you connect with people to create the results you desire. Michelle walks you through some of the key principles and practices of top‑notch connectors. She believes that a person's ability to create change and results in any organisation is directly tied to a person’s ability to influence others.
You will leave with:
- a greater understanding of the psychology of persuasion
- the ability to become a person of influence
- knowing how to connect, not just communicate
The practical steps shared can be implemented in your business today as leadership is influence and influence hinges on our ability to connect with people. The art of connecting to become a more effective leader is a teachable skill that you can easily learn IF you want to. In this session, Michelle begins to show you how.
