Turning a Down Market into an Opportunity for Greater Loyalty and Deeper Relationships: 

Mutual Support for Mutual Success. A seismic shift is under way. Our society is moving from an economy driven by large, top-down institutions to an economy driven by passionate individuals, empowered by technology, quickly coming together to form ad hoc tribes capable of tackling all kinds of projects. Everywhere you look, you can see groups coalescing around shared interests--working together, effecting change, taking action. From administrative assistants to CEO's, we all need a trusted team. We need to create lifeline relationships with people who offer guidance, encouragement and accountability. This talk focuses on the necessity of forming deep bonds with a few key people who provide candid feedback and support to guide our day-to-day actions and fulfill our long-term goals.

Relationships for Career Success

In this talk, students and young professionals acquire the mindset and skill set to take control of their careers through building mutually beneficial relationships. Setting goals is where most career development programs end, but that's just where "Relationships for Career Success" begins. After establishing incremental goals for a range of 60-days to 10-years, participants learn to do the following:
--Identify people who can help them achieve career and life goals
--Build and broadcast unique personal brands to stand out in the crowded marketplace
--Ensure the people and resources in their own "back yards" are contributing to their success
--Develop a customized Relationship Action Plan to guide their actions and track progress
--Approach and engage mentors for guidance along the many paths of their careers, culminating in a dynamic personal board of advisors

Relationships for Revenue Growth

Salespeople and entrepreneurs face the hard reality that more and more of their products and services are faster and faster becoming commodities in today's competitive marketplace. In this environment, the one lasting strategy for consistently growing revenue is to proactively build genuine, lasting relationships with clients. Through "Relationships for Revenue Growth," participants learn the following to do just that:

--Make more business relationships personal because selling is easier and more fun work with personal friends rather than strictly professional contacts,
--Build emotional ties that transcend transactions through demonstrating uncommon generosity with their clients
--Uncover new leads and warm-up cold calls through cultivating their existing networks
--Close more deals by increasing their value proposition through relationships

Relationships for Group Success

A group's success fundamentally depends upon how its individual members work together, and individuals work more effectively and enjoy their work more when they have genuine personal relationships with their colleagues. "Relationships for Group Success" helps participants to stop seeing colleagues merely as vice presidents or lower-level managers and to start seeing them as human beings. Great for resolving common problems that arise from cross-functional collaboration and geographic separation, "Relationships for Group Success" sparks a culture of generosity and accountability to help participants do the following:
--Help each other succeed in both professional and personal pursuits
--Have more fun in the workplace
--Facilitate direct, honest communication for resolving conflict
--Contribute to the firm's success by proactively building relationships with people inside and outside the organization
