Watch Connie Dieken in Action

Connie Dieken is the author of the bestsellers Talk Less, Say More and Become the Real Deal, both published by Wiley. A former broadcast journalist, she delivers her thought leadership on developing executive presence and building influence.

Connie draws on two unique experiences to help people build their personal presence and lasting influence. She combines:

  • The keen instincts of an experienced journalist, skilled at drilling to the core of issues, with 
  • The astute insights of an executive coach to global CEOs.

She spent twenty years as a television journalist with ABC and NBC, earning five Emmy awards, two Telly awards, and induction into the Radio/Television Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

In 2000, she founded the Dieken Group, a global coaching and consultancy firm focused on helping leaders build a culture of influential decision-making. She advises leaders at organizations such as Nestlé, Deloitte, HP, eBay, Apple, Bausch + Lomb, McDonalds, The Cleveland Clinic and American Greetings.

An intuitively interactive, dynamic speaker, Connie is a guest lecturer on the power of influence and presence at Case Western University, Indiana University and Ohio State University.

She also delivers powerful keynotes to corporate and conference audiences around the world.  Frequently the highest rated speaker on conference agendas, Connie delivers solid takeaways that transform careers, which, in turn, improve the performance of entire organizations.

Connie’s thought leadership has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CNBC, The Los Angeles Time, Crain’s Business, The Chicago Tribune, Women’s Day, Men’s Health, The Huffington Post and many other publications worldwide.

She is most grateful, however, to provide leadership to her remarkable son and daughter who influence Connie’s worldview every day.

Solving Your Presence Problem
How to Build Your Personal Brand, Establish Trust and Gain Lasting Influence 

Whether your audience members want to move a team to action or elevate their own careers, they need presence. But what is presence? Now more than ever, people are quick to judge, resist and dismiss. During this highly interactive keynote, Connie pinpoints the three most crucial presence problems that undermine person power – and guides each person to identify and solve their issues to transform into the powerfully influential leader they're meant to be. 

Your audience will discover how to:

  • Lead others to seek their presence, trust them, and willingly follow their lead.
  • Override presence-killers such as egotism, anxiety, long-windedness and social façades
  • Be – and be recognized as – the real deal, thereby boosting their leadership capabilities

This keynote is based on Connie's newest bestseller, Become the Real Deal

Talk Less, Say More
Three Habits to Influence Others and Make Things Happen 

Is your audience frustrated by distracted, impatient people tuning them out? Are they having trouble getting their points across in today’s time-pressed, noisy world? In this keynote, they’ll learn how to elevate their relationships forever. They’ll walk away ready to implement three powerful habits that will transform the true metric of influence – the way others respond to them. And it will never be more positive after this program. 

Your audience will discover how to:

  • Connect with what others want and values to capture their attention
  • Convey information with portion control so they don’t confuse others
  • Convince anyone to reach an ideal outcome and feel good about it.

This program is based on Connie's bestseller, Talk Less, Say More

Present To Win
Develop & Deliver Ideas that Influence

Your audience will never approach or deliver a presentation the same way after experiencing this program. This keynote hones in on the outcome of presenting: how to influence positive decision-making. From this point forward, your attendees will place their own audiences at the center of everything they do. Connie models her strategies from the stage, so your audience gets a double dip as they discover her wildly successful approach that Fortune 100 teams have adopted as their winning presentation model. 

Your audience will discover how to:

  • Reverse-engineer messages to influence even the most demanding people
  • Simplify to amplify to fight presentation bloat
  • Present naked. (It's not what it sounds like, but it's wildly fun.)

This program is adapted from Connie's executive coaching program.
