In this action packed session, Rhonda will show you how to avoid these three massive mistakes.  More importantly, you will learn how to stand out and be able to talk about your business with confidence, how to attract perfect clients who have the budget to pay you,  and, finally, you will learn the one thing that you may be missing that affects the success of all your marketing (its a game changer).

  • Set yourself up for marketing success
  • Get known by your perfect (higher paying) client and close the sale faster
  • Save money by hiring the right suppliers
  • Make more money working less time

Many business leaders struggle to lead and motivate their staff to achieve the results demanded by their stakeholders.  Business leaders are trying to understand how to motivate and inspire staff while focusing on getting the job done and moving the company forward.  In most cases, the job is getting larger and more urgent despite limited resources.

Today, every firm’s managers, supervisors and senior person play a critical role in the firm’s achieving corporate strategies and goals.  If key managers in your company become more charismatic leaders, the result will be a dramatic increase in engagement, retention, productivity, profitability, and career success.

Research and observation tells us that charismatic leaders achieve the greatest results but up until now, little was known about the leadership behaviours that make these people so charismatic.  The word charisma has been used to describe such varied degrees of personal management behaviours that its true meaning is now lost on many people.  Consequently, it is hard to measure and understand the behaviours that influence other people’s perception of an individual’s charisma.  We know that your perceived leadership charisma impacts your staff and customer’s perception of you and ultimately you career success.

The presentation, The Impact of the Charismatic Leader, will outline the meaning of Leadership Charisma and its relationship to you in improving your staff’s engagement, while also discussing the resulting impact on your organization.   Leadership Charisma is not an inherited trait; it can be learned.  Since charisma is defined by an individual’s perception of a leader, we also cover six critical leadership behaviours that strongly shape these perceptions.

Thorough a detailed case study, you will learn of the unique relationship between these leadership behaviours.  Our case study manager discovered how his core competencies and characteristics impacted his group’s engagement.  The manager undertook key steps to transforming his actions and impacted the work environment so staff are more engaged, motivated, and inspired to work at their best performance.  The case study demonstrates that with the right information, you too can create a leadership action plan to transform your working environment.
