Creating Contagious Leadership
Based on his highly acclaimed book, Creating Contagious Leadership, John explores the habits and qualities that Contagious Leaders practice to create winning organizations. When embraced, these habits spread from one person to another, producing an environment that is rich with leaders. Creating this culture is neither expensive nor complex.
The benefits of Creating Contagious Leadership for your organization are enormous:
– Attrition is Diminished
– Productivity is Increased
– Optimism & Creativity are Improved
– Communication is Enhanced
– Teamwork is More Effective
– Superior Talent is Attracted
The individual is rewarded with:
– More Focus
– More Fun
– More Involvement
– More Results
The Action After Satisfaction
John demolishes the myth that customer satisfaction is the ultimate goal while serving up a few simple strategies for moving satisfied customers toward Customer Involvement, where the real pot of gold resides.
After investing millions to create satisfied customers, many organizations and sales people drop the ball before realizing a return. Although one of John’s clients had a customer satisfaction rate of 91.3%, less than 8% repurchased the product when given an opportunity to do so.
Customer satisfaction is most powerful when treated as a launch pad for customer involvement.
Stop Selling and Help Me Buy
Customers and prospects do not want to be ‘sold’ anymore than you do. They want someone to ‘help them buy.’ They want to be communicated with in a manner that works for them, not the sales person.
Regardless of product category, it has been scientifically documented that we all prefer buying from people we like. It is no surprise then that the people we like the most are just like us. There is a GAP between ‘US’ (the sales leader) and ‘THEM’ (the purchaser).
Through this workshop, John helps the participants narrow the GAP.
John will transform the way your people think of themselves and how they view customers and prospects. If increased sales productivity is your goal, this step-by-step approach of applying behavioral techniques to the sales process offers a powerful solution.
This workshop is highly interactive and includes individual and group roleplaying. The participants will effectively learn to slow down, get to know the customer/prospect, and improve their sales productivity.
Speak and Be Heard
Turnover is an enormous drain on an organization’s resources. If your
organization has a turnover problem (most do), you have a leadership problem.
TODAY’S CRITICAL CHALLENGES:
– Attracting and retaining the very best people
– Harnessing their unique talents
– Creating environments that reward team players and encourage
Effective Communication is essential to meeting these challenges. Behavior is the key to effective communications. In this workshop, John enhances leadership skills through effective communication by helping participants:
– Gain a deep insight into their own behavioral style
– Learn to quickly recognize the preferred communication style of others
– Adapt their style to the other person, creating an opening for effective communication
This program involves individual and group role-playing plus team and group
activities that help participants learn to master the essential ingredients of effective communication and leadership. The net result is that individuals develop a renewed sense of contribution to the organization, teamwork and productivity improve, and there is an overall increase in optimism and creativity.
The entire program involves a two-step process:
1. THE MANAGING FOR SUCCESS PROFILES: Each participant completes an online Behavior and Values Profile prior to the workshop. These profiles detail their natural and adapted behavioral style as well as the attitudes and values that drive their behavior.
2. THE WORKSHOP: During the workshop participants develop a thorough understanding of the
Managing for Success System.
