25 Jul, 2018Doing what I do best
For many years I have had the pleasure of representing organisations as a keynote speaker and a coach.
Recently I had the opportunity to be a part of a brand new initiative that the awesome company Willmott Dixon are launching.
It’s always a great pleasure to be a part of something like this, as it has the potential to have a massive impact on the lives of a great number of people and make an organisation a better place to work with greater productivity and profitability.
One of the skills that I have is to be able to give people a different perspective of something that they are being asked to do and take part in.
People very rarely change when told what to do. They are much more likely to change when they gain a new and different perspective. This is one of the main reasons I am used as an inspirational speaker as I excel at giving people the opportunity to see things with a fresh pair of eyes.
There is such a thing as psychological reactants that arises when people are asked to do things, especially when they’re being asked to change. This is why only 20 to 30% of initiatives that are launched in organisations are actually seen through to their completion with a positive impact on the organisation.
No one really likes to be told what to do but everyone wants to be a part of something that makes a difference.
I really think we hit the mark this presentation as the feedback was fantastic.
What made this experience so much more fulfilling was that it was in the beautiful Sadlers Wells Theatre in London
