Video Seminar: How To Fix Dysfunctional Teams

By Grevis Beard

Dysfunctional teams drive away top talent, damage morale and wellbeing, and cost businesses millions in reduced productivity. Many organisations have limited HR capacity, and managers are often taken by surprise when interpersonal issues and bad behaviour start to affect their team’s culture, reputation and output. Grevis Beard is co-author of a new book, Fix Your Team, which empowers leaders and managers to understand the common issues that can pull teams off track (such as lack of clarity, toxic personalities, or unhealthy competition), and understand how to fix them.

Video Seminar: Importance Of A Well-Designed Uniform

By Pamela Jabbour

We live in a society where the clothing you wear represents your values, beliefs and purpose and helps others identify with you. In business, effective branding can make you appear more approachable, professional and confident, and often make or break a sales opportunity. When considering whether or not to implement a uniform, it’s important to remember that your staff are mini billboards, whose job is to connect with your customers and tell the story of your brand.

Video Seminar: Setting Yourself Up For Success

By Lisa Stephenson

By the time we are established in our career and have built a version of success, we are mostly habitual in how we perform, think and behave. Let’s explore the thought provokers that will challenge what you need to do and plan in terms of what’s next. Success is personal and requires work. Most high performers want more! To be healthier, wealthier, smarter… So what do the most successful CEOs, entrepreneurs, elite athletes and leaders around the world do, to be the very best version of themselves? They are prepared to do what others aren’t and here we will talk about the strategies that work. You will also learn why motivation is not relevant. In my experience as a success coach, people are highly motivated at times, but when that passes they are stuck in the busy, and the delivery of doing what needs to be done for their people and to get results.

Video Seminar: The 25 Minute Meeting

By Donna McGeorge

Meetings are the defacto way of doing business, but too often they do nothing more than eat up our days and waste our resources. This does not need to be the case, and with a few simple changes to how you approach meetings, you can get back valuable time in your day and improve the impact of every meeting you attend.

Video Seminar: How To Lead Like A Coach

By Karen Morley

Leaders who coach double their engagement scores. Their teams willingly work harder and get twice as much done. Both leaders and teams are happier and more satisfied. Leaders are under pressure to produce results at a faster pace, with fewer resources, and less certainty. Most leaders respond by adopting a command-and-control style. They don’t delegate enough, they overwork, and end up feeling overburdened. Teams disengage from leaders who control. Instead of producing more, they produce less, feel discouraged, and are more likely to burnout. When leaders coach, they cultivate trust with their people by supporting and developing them. They readily delegate work and responsibility. They do what they can to equip team members.

Video Seminar: Ask More. Tell Less. Lead Fearlessly.

By Corrinne Armour

Leaders today face challenges of low staff engagement and inconsistent results with people not following through on commitments. Leadership bench-strength is lacking. It is hard work as a leader feeling that you need to have all the answers and remain in control. Working harder is not the answer. When we tell people what to do, they may listen, but they are unlikely to commit to action and are even less likely to remember. When we ask great questions that lead to insight, an emotional component is triggered in the brain that leads to commitment and accountability. Leaders who ask uses these strategies, and more, to connect deeply, lead fearlessly and achieve results that transform.

Video Seminar: Outside-In Downside-Up Leadership

By Jason T. Smith

For more than a decade, Jason T. Smith had led his business with a traditional vertical organisational structure that mostly worked – up to a point, anyway. But something changed. He set an unreasonable goal that couldn’t be achieved through the status quo. The organisational model lacked the critical design attributes needed to unleash its innovative potential. It seemed like the team had just stopped working. Fast-forward two years later, after weeks of intentional learning, planning, testing and probing, they found the sweet spot between collaboration and peer accountability. They discovered an authentic and scalable way to give each team member the freedom to do what they love and excel at it. They started working from the outside-in, turning former norms and systems downside-up. The result was a workplace revolution. They achieved their overriding strategic target of 7/50/100: a brand presence in 7 states or territories, generating revenues of close to $50 million in annual client services, in over 100 locations. The colleagues leading the organisation work together in their new found structure they call ONEteam™.

Video Seminar: How To Maximise Your Leadership Potential

By Michelle Sales

As a CEO, reflecting on your current leadership behaviours and stepping up as required is critical. You often need to lead differently tomorrow from how you are today. You need to take yourself out of your comfort zone - and be confident enough to do this - and be aware of your context and what the environment requires of you to lead because this is always changing. Continue to challenge yourself and ask, ‘If what got me here won’t get me there, what do I need to be doing now to step up?’ How do I build ‘real’ confidence rather than a fake sense of bravado? Inevitably when we step up and exercise leadership differently there will be setbacks and times of challenge so learning the skills to maintain confidence and resilience is critical to leadership success.

Video Seminar: CEOs, Sales Is A Strategic Opportunity

By Steven Norman

While the Marketing function has progressed exponentially over the past decade and Customer Experience has come out of nowhere to be a core C-level function, the Sales area has not progressed much. With our products becoming more commoditised and globalisation driving more competition it is harder than ever to stand out. What used to be Strategic Competitive Advantage has now morphed to temporary and transient advantage at best. So what’s left to differentiate you with customers? The sales function is where the rubber hits the road and your business makes contact with its customers.

Video Seminar: Leadership Transformation, What’s Possible?

By Peter Shields

Leadership transformation is a novel idea because 80% of adults don’t transcend the fear-driven, socialised mind stage of consciousness. You can’t lead the majority from the mindset that dominates the majority. There’s no one way for a leader to follow because each of us are enabled and limited by our unique experiences and learning. Therefore leadership transformation is a fiction that each leader must choose to navigate and find their path.

Video Seminar: Storytelling For Business Development

By Mike Adams

Stories are the natural language for our minds. We learn, make sense of our world, remember and plan with stories. Well-delivered stories create connection, differentiate an offering, help land the deal and foster better partnerships. Storytelling is essential for effective business development but it’s a hitherto unacknowledged activity, appreciated and practiced only by the very best. Mike’s book Seven Stories Every Salesperson Must Tell provides a framework and management system so that stories can be deployed throughout an organisation to help everyone develop better business.

Video Seminar: Turning Red Tape Into Blue Ribbon

By Bryan Whitefield

Errors in decision making cost time and money. As a minimum, the time and cost of rework or of undoing the decision. Sensibly, organisations seek to influence staff decision making to help maximise outcomes and minimise rework. This is primarily achieved through policies, processes and systems that are designed by enabling divisions of organisations such as finance, HR, risk and compliance. These controls are often seen by the producing divisions of a business as unnecessary red tape. The opportunity for organisations is to better align the producing and the enabling functions so that guidance on decision making helps to accelerate the business. To help the boat go faster, not put on another layer of ugly barnacles that increase organisational drag. Blue ribbon guidance is achieved when staff members have clarity on boundaries and the guidance is fit-for-purpose no matter the role of the end user. The result is faster and smarter decision making.

Video Seminar: The Languages Of Leadership

By Wendy Born

Many of us have issues trying to lead disparate teams with multiple personalities, colleagues with conflicting agendas and bosses with minds of their own. The questions we often ask ourselves are: How do I manage my team leaders? How do I manage my peers? How do I manage my own leader to stop making big promises to my team that I know they won’t deliver on? The ability to influence and create an impression on those you work with, so that they want to do work with you and for you, is a constant aspiration for good leaders. After all, if you could master this, then getting work done would be easier for you, wouldn’t it? As a leader you should always be looking for ways to have an impact on those around you, or the situation that presents to you. Wendy talks about how to use your words, actions and behaviours to have a positive, lasting experience with those you work with, those you lead and those you report to.
