What is the Leadership Talk?
Simply put, it can be the most effective mechanism for achieving outstanding results you'll ever use -- or need.
But to use it properly, you must understand it thoroughly.
And the first thing to understand is that you employ the Leadership Talk in lieu of a presentation.
Presentations format and communicate information; but in terms of your leadership impact, the Talk does something much more: It not only communicates information, but it establishes deep, motivational relationships with people so they are inspired to act for great results.
Here are the stakes: As a leader, you do nothing more important than get results. And one of the main ways you get results is talk. You talk 15 and more times a day to individuals and groups. When your talking (and listening) interactions are accomplished less in presentation-ways and more in Leadership Talk ways, the effectiveness of your leadership is dramatically increased.
How Can I Learn To Develop
And Deliver Leadership Talks?
There are two ways:
1) You can purchase my book, The Leadership: The Greatest Leadership Tool (And if choose, its companion, 101 Ways To Give Great Leadership Talks.) on Amazon.
In this book, I leverage decades of my experience to bring you the methodologies that have been used successfully by leaders at General Electric, AT&T, IBM, Merck, Sears Roebuck, NASA, The United Nations, and many more.
Keep in mind: These methodologies are just as relevant whether you're leading a global Fortune 500 company or a 10-person manufacturing operation.
You'll discover not only what's important about motivating people to get results, but precisely how to motivate people and keep them motivated day in and day out for ongoing success — the stuff great companies and legendary careers are built on.
These Are Not Your Grandfather's and even your Father's Leadership Methods
Let's get real. The motivational methods that worked before simply do not work anymore. Why?
Globalization, raging competition, and dizzing advances in technology have changed everything you may have been taught years ago about leadership — and so must you if you want to achieve continually great results.
The Leadership Talk gives you the practical, straightforward ideas you need to address the monumental shift in the minds of today's employees and managers.
2) You can participate in one of my seminars. Depending on one's needs and how one is inclined to delve deeply into the material, the Leadership Talk seminars last from one-half day to a full day to two-days. In some cases, there is a follow-up day given after participants develop and deliver Leadership Talks on-the-job for some 35-days.
Chances are you've been struggling with underperformance and indifference at your company for some time now.
Maybe you thought it would work itself out.
Maybe you were hoping you'd wake up one morning with the perfect, creative solution that would reverse the tide of stagnation and discontent you face every day.
Then you really woke up — to the realization that if anything is going to change at your company, you need to take bold, decisive action right away.
But where should you begin? The problem seems so huge, almost insurmountable. You don't know whom to trust. You don't even know if you can trust your own judgment.
Are you really up to the task? What IS the task exactly? And is this the beginning or end to what you'd always dreamed would be an illustrious career?
Well, stop wondering what your next steps should be and start envisioning all of the opportunities, profits, and sense of accomplishment you stand to gain.
