Keynotes

Dog Training Tips for Successful Human Leaders

Tips to Stay Calm, Cool, Collected, and Respected

Humans and canines alike can sniff out and size up a good leader in seconds.
Would you pass the canine leadership sniff test? 

Find out this and more including how to: 

  • Determine if your leadership is up to snuff from a dog’s point of view.
  • Provide feedback that elicits trust, respect, and admiration.
  • Avoid shaming behaviors that scare dogs and shut down humans.
  • Train using methods that inspire the desire to achieve results. 
  • Develop a calm leadership presence that cultivates loyalty.

Just like great dog trainers, human leaders who are respected inspire loyalty, creativity, risk-taking, and physiological safety: All factors critical to organizational success. This session digs deep into five principles used by successful dog trainers and applies them to the workplace.

  • See losing as a trigger to move forward.
  • Harness creative energy after a devastating loss.

PRESENTATION SKILLS WORKSHOP

What’d She Say? Speak with Crystal Clarity

Be heard, be understood, and keep your audience’s attention

An effective speaker is one who is clear. Crystal clear. Achieving clarity is one of the toughest challenges speakers face. Without clarity, we separate ourselves from our audience and waste everyone’s time… including our own. This workshop promises to be interactive, entertaining, and – of course – crystal clear!

Learn to:

  • Use the C.L.E.A.R.method to invite connection. 
  • Captivate your audience before you say a word.
  • Transform nervousness into energy your audience appreciates.
  • Master your voice quality and projection tools to ensure you are heard.
  • Zero in on clarity-degrading factors that have nothing to do with your oral presentation.

C.L.E.A.R.: Center, Listen, Engage, Allow, Repeatable
