Topic Descriptions

Generational Diversity

There are currently four generations in the workplace, with a 5th generation rapidly approaching. At no time in our history have we had such diversity in thoughts and beliefs as we do now. The generational value cycles impact everything from the way that we hire, to the way that we lead and motivate, to our ability to be profitable in business. By understanding why each of the generations is who they are, teams are better prepared to be successful in their jobs. Whether you work in executive leadership, construction, healthcare, or the car industry, you have felt the effects of the youngest generation and the shift that happened in 2008.

Hypnotic Selling

The sales models of 20 years ago no longer work as well as they used to work. Buyers are different because the world is different. Because of this change in consumers, we have need to create a change in our approach in order to bring our sales back up to where they should be in every industry. The process of hypnotic selling combines the sciences of physiognomy, NLP, and conversational hypnosis. By using these three in perfect harmony, a salesperson is able to very quickly identify what it is that the prospect wants to buy, how much they are willing to spend, and how to get them to ask if they can buy. The sales process doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, using this model, it completely flips it to creating a "buying opportunity."

Authentic Communication

Our capacity to communicate is rooted in our biology. From the beginning, we have been able to express basic ideas about whether we are friendly, what we are seeking, and how we feel about another person. As we have developed our capacity for language, we have relied more and more on that component of communication and less on our ability to read others. In this program, participants learn how to listen, how to read others effectively, and how to control their messaging. This highly interactive program teaches teams to connect, develop trust, and accelerate their EQ. Being authentic is about understanding others, adapting to their needs in communication, and inspiring them to trust you and work in harmony with you.
