Despite the universal craving for happiness at work, many are experiencing challenges within their work environments that rob them from job fulfillment and impede them from contributing to their own maximum success. Intuitively and sometimes randomly, the typical worker attempts actions that he or she feels will provide the greatest happiness-return. Often, such efforts are counterproductive and, in the end, further weaken resolve and morale.
For any company to flourish and offer healthy workplaces that optimally position the staff to present the best version of themselves in full expression of their passions and talents, direction and insight from sources other than intuition and speculation are needed. After all, the energy and attitudinal health of each worker affects the entire culture and the company’s bottom line.
In this 90-minute insightful and motivating presentation, participants will be challenged to look at the science of happiness and discover the six essential “happiness creators” that when present at their offices, will transform an ordinary workplace into a vibrant, fully engaged, healthy and happy environment where everyone on the team flourishes.
Through the use of life stories, illustrations and reflection exercises, participants will learn not just what the specific happiness creators are, but how to easily implement each one into their own workplace. They will be introduced to practical actions needed to gain authentic, positive influence and fulfillment in their day-to-day activities at work. In addition, they will realize some deconstructive habits and mindsets they may have adopted, as well as the importance of being personally accountable for presenting the best version of themselves in whatever role they find themselves at work.
Achieving a vibrant, healthy workplace that brings out the best in everyone is not quixotic, but rather quite realistic and achievable. It cannot be realized, however, until each person understands how to regularly experience joy at work, regardless of their position or role.
It is an exciting venture for employees and employers to discover the path away from wishful thinking and complaining and then reposition themselves on a clearer path of intentional interactions, where the entire staff experiences how it feels to be happy at work. It is time for us to genuinely love what we do!
Everyone wants to feel like they are winning at work, yet Gallup reports that only 30% of workers feel they have achieved this elusive objective. Many employees experience challenges within their work environments that rob them from job fulfillment and impede them from contributing to the company’s maximum success. Because they are not the employer or manager, many feel they have little influence or control to affect positive change. Although managers and owners have the prime responsibility to ensure their employees are engaged and fulfilled, “untitled” workers have more control over the direction and culture of their workplaces than they likely realize.
For a business office to flourish, every staff member must have positive, magnetic appeal. Their energy and attitudinal health affect the entire culture and the company’s bottom line. Unfortunately, many potential superstars underachieve because they have fallen victim to learned helplessness and have not grasped the power behind personal leadership. Many have bought into limiting beliefs that negatively affect the climate and potential of the entire staff.
In this presentation, participants will be challenged to look at themselves as leaders in an auspicious way. Through the use of life stories, illustrations and reflection exercises, participants will learn practical actions needed to gain authentic, positive influence in their day-to- day activities at work. In addition, they will realize some deconstructive habits and mindsets they may have adopted, as well as the importance of being personally accountable for presenting the best version of themselves in whatever role they find themselves at work. Achieving a vibrant, healthy workplace that brings out the best in everyone is not quixotic, but rather quite realistic and achievable. It cannot be realized however, without competent leadership, and each staff member has a vital role.
As participants plug into five key leadership questions, they will learn the powerful leadership principles entangled within each and how to apply them immediately to their working and personal lives. They will possess a clear balance of the joys and frustrations associated with leadership, while learning they always have a choice where their direct attention will focus. By the end of this session, participants will not simply have a clearer understanding of what personal leadership entails, but will be motivated and equipped to be powerful leaders within their respective clinics, associations and communities. They will discover the path away from wishful thinking and complaining, and reposition themselves on a clearer leadership path of intentional interactions, where they, and their entire staff, can experience how it feels to be winning at work.
Even if we never wear a leadership title, we all influence thousands of people during our lives. At its core, leadership is about influence. From seemingly insignificant, personal decisions to major, strategic judgements, on one level or another, each one of us is in the influencing business. Working through an understanding that leadership can be summarized as positive influence, William clarifies the five non-negotiable responsibilities that leaders have to those within their sphere of influence and how, once mastered, momentum begins to build.
Presented with a creative spin, participants will clearly understand how to prioritize the five essentials and separate winning actions from busyness, destructive interactions and distractions. With an understanding of the most common leadership pitfalls and how to avoid them, participants can then easily attain personal satisfaction as well as contribute to workplace health, unity and success. Since the seeds for work culture are planted at the leadership level, creating a work culture that situates everyone to win cannot be taken lightly.
There is no need to second guess what effective leaders do differently than struggling leaders. This information-rich session clarifies how to tap into the joys of leadership. Whether a titled leader or a lay person concerned with elevating their level of positive influence, this session is sure to challenge your view on what constitutes an effective leader.
In both our personal and professional lives, change is an unavoidable constant. Whether the change is self-initiated and within our control or forced upon us, change makes us uncomfortable and brings with it varying degrees of stress. On the macro level, careers evolve and change. On a personal level, job roles, environments, responsibilities and sometimes even our jobs change. There’s no getting around it, organizations undergo changes, strategies shift, personnel come and go and the expectations of both our customers and coworkers are in constant transition. The pressure to adjust to these metaphorical tide-changes leave many stressed and emotionally drained. Fortunately, there are ways to adapt to change, and even to take advantage of it.
In this presentation, participants will learn the three main areas of change and how to plug their own responses into the change cycle. They will understand the basic psychology behind change and receive practical, easy-to- use tools that will assist in minimizing the paralyzing sting from fear associated with change. They will understand what is required to become a person of influence and strength during transition within each of the three change categories. Through the use of life stories, illustrations and reflection exercises, participants will learn how to spot the three main types of change resistors and how to shield themselves from negative influence. They will be challenged to adopt new perspectives on change and assess whether they have adopted some deconstructive habits and mindsets that may have grounded them in survival mode.
By the end of this session, participants will not simply have a clearer understanding of change, but will be masterfully equipped to situate themselves for increased job satisfaction and heightened influence. They will possess crystal-clear insight on how to use change to build stronger relationships, create more positive influence and strengthen their team standing. They will be both motivated and equipped to not simply survive in transition, but to thrive.
Humans are a goal seeking species and as a result, to attain and sustain personal and professional success, you will need to understand how to auspiciously plug in. Can you recall a personal or professional goal that you earnestly set, only to watch it fade into nothing more than a wish? Why is it that some seem to reach their finish line while others never arrive?
According to research, only 70% set goals, and a mere 20% of them are successful. To accomplish your goals, each and every time, you will need to understand how to formulate and follow through in the most prudent manner. Traditional instruction on goal setting requires quixotic commitment and diligent sacrifice while accepting foggy uncertainty as to if your efforts will produce results. In fact, if you adhere to the conventional wisdom regarding setting goals you will inadvertently stack the odds in your disfavor. In essence, most people go about goal setting incorrectly.
William’s fresh perspective, based on the science behind achieving your wildest and most important goals, will not only leave you feeling motivated to reach for what you want, but will clarify the specifics needed to produce breakthrough results. Participants will receive the latest insight, practical tools and an easy-to- implement process that whether chasing a professional, organizational or personal goal, the material taught will be a game changer.
William believes every act is on some level an act of teamwork. This does not mean, however, that each team is a healthy, cohesive group, tapping into their maximum potential. Based on the principles outlined in his top-selling book, The Teamwork Ladder: 8 Steps to MAXIMUM Success, William presents a clear outline of the importance individuals play in making teamwork powerful. William believes the meme that “there is no I in team” has miscommunicated the role of each individual and weakened the philosophy behind teamwork. In a straight forward talk, William unpacks the specific essentials to creating a vibrant, healthy successful team where both the company and the individual feel like they are winning. Enjoy this rich learning experience and discover anew the power behind working together and succeeding as one.
Designed for managers and their staffs, William presents a case that exceptional service is the easiest and most effective way to gain the competitive advantage. Training people to be customer centric in all they do, yields extraordinary benefits towards staff unity, morale and increased customer loyalty. William clearly teaches how to almost effortlessly bring a customer experience to your workplace and thereby become the most positively talked about company in town, without adding a cost to your business. William believes that customer loyalty is your strongest asset and this can only be tapped into when those providing the service understand their role in providing not just a service, but an experience.
It has been stated that up to 70% of the problems and frustrations at work can be attributed to weak communication. Great communicators approach work differently and focus on different components of their day than poor communicators. William believes that communication is rooted in strengthening relationships, clarifying motives and exceeding expectations. Be enlightened on how to make certain the message you are sending is the same as the one being received. Learn how to extend your influence and strengthen relationships by participating in this relevant, practical, information-rich session, designed for the entire staff.
