Presentation Topics

Plant Your Feet Firmly in Mid-Air: Lead through Change 

What would happen if everyone in the organization saw the positives, not the problems in current changes?

What would it look like if people broke out of their molds, push their boundaries, and developed a new set of skills?

Research indicates that 69% of the workplace is not fully engaged. How much time and money does this group cost an organization? How much time and energy would be saved if everyone learned a common language to identify and contain resistance?

How much time and money would be saved if everyone became rekindled their passion, became fully engaged, and took daily and consistent action toward their own goals and the goals of the organization?

Audiences experiencing this high-energy, high-humor presentation learn how to:
  • Guide themselves and others through ambiguity and uncertainty in a positive and productive way.
  • Keep morale high, to retain the best and encourage the rest.
  • Develop the courage to face new obstacles and challenges with a strong forward momentum.

People leave with a positive mindset open to change and opportunity. They are more likely to take more personal responsibility and accountability for change, and move themselves and their teams faster into the future.

Leaders help others see the future more clearly and have the confidence that they can get there, they return to work with a renewed enthusiasm and spread it to others around them.


 

The Psychology of the Customer Experience 

Dr. Lapp’s research on the Psychology of Customer Experience has revealed the top four psychological needs of customers, which, if met, can propel organizations to sustainable growth and market dominance.  Audiences learn the latest neuro-marketing techniques that create experiences to maintain loyal and emotionally connected customers, similar to Apple, Starbucks, Lexus, and Harley Davidson. This is not a standard customer service program. Teams will understand the unmet psychological needs of their customers and learn to meet them in practical, easy-to-apply ways.

The front line will learn what specific actions they must take on a daily basis to create the unique experiences that capture hearts and minds of their customers, and leaders will be able to apply these same skills and tools to create loyalty among their teams.
