Change is Inevitable - Growth is Optional!

Change is generally discussed as if it were a threat, a huge barrier to running a successful business and living a happy life. This is a challenge when it comes to engaging the best talents of an organisation's greatest assets. It is even more of a problem when managing people in harsh, disruptive times. Nigel's interactive session presents ways of thinking and being which demonstrate change to be an entirely natural and thrilling experience - and one which everyone in your company can enjoy rather than fear.

How to have your best year ever

How To Have Your Best Year Ever presents proven principles guaranteed to inform, educate, motivate, and inspire you towards doing your best! You'll learn:

Creating open communication in the organisation

For all organisations, it's become an absolute necessity for the leader to communicate effectively with anyone who has a stake in their company, whether they be staff, shareholders, clients, the board or potential investors. When things are changing, staff need information and motivation to keep up, to know what's going on, to meet changing objectives, and to make decisions that will ultimately affect the bottom line and the well-being of the organisation.

You will learn to think of communication as a pre-emptive strike against rumour and gossip. By sharing truthful information - in a complete and timely manner - you diminish the hurtful effects of the grapevine. And make no mistake about it: your company has a grapevine. Every company does.

High Impact Leadership

Managers maintain the status quo while leaders take their organisations to new heights. How does an organisation get the leadership it needs to thrive? The bad news is few people are "natural born leaders." The good news: Leadership can be learned! This Nigel Risner High Impact Leadership presentation explains the six skills all leaders must develop to impact their people and organisations. Nigel Risner goes on to provide his practical, realistic and usable blueprint for helping you develop these six skills. With these six skills you are ready to reach your next level for yourself and for your organisation.

Creating and having passion & fun in the workplace

Nigel will reveal how individuals can identify their passion and create ways to integrate it into their everyday life and career. Passion fuels inexhaustible energy. Learn how to discover your purpose and integrate that purpose with your work. You will understand how to motivate yourself and how to make work seem like play and you will learn how others will share your passion and enthusiasm. Having fun at work is a crucial element for your company's success. Your employees - and you - will work better, harder and more effectively than ever before and you will see the impact on the bottom line.
