At the end of the day success in almost any endeavour is about our ability to influence others. This influencing is all about communication and getting our message across. We forget the basics of communication constantly and either ‘tick the boxes’ or say it how we would want hear it.
There are some clear psychological principles around communication preferences that dramatically improve the success of any communication endeavour …. and sometimes create amusing outcomes as a result.
In this humorous Keynote Tim explores a number of famous examples of influencing in the wrong way and what we all need to do as leaders and communicators to get our message across.
Who is Tim?
Tim is well known for delivering thoughtful and provocative sessions to audiences across Australia and New Zealand. He is a leading expert on ‘Pragmatic Leadership’ in complex organisations. At the end of the day we all need to deliver outcomes and Tim has a clear focus on Outcome Focussed Leadership.
He has a clear focus on helping his audience:
- Understand what really counts in their roles as formal and informal leaders
- Discard the fads and fashions of modern ‘Leadership Training’ and get back to basics
- Challenge their status quo
- Believe in their ability to achieve whatever they put their minds to, either individually or as a group
- See the power of mindset and a ‘just do it’ attitude.
Tim has truly ‘been there and done that’. He draws on his experiences as a Senior Police Officer, a leader in Hospitality, his time in Banking and Finance and running his own business to provide meaningful, real life examples and stories to illustrate his points.
