Heath Slawner believes that when we meaningfully connect with and inspire one another, we rise well beyond what we could do alone. Specializing in strategic communication and leadership, Heath is fascinated by human behavior and has built a career learning and sharing his insights with leading organizations around the world. In his keynotes, workshops and training sessions, Heath uses stories, studies and basic biology to show that trust is at the heart of it all.
What drives decision-making? What brings teams together to achieve remarkable results? How do we inspire action and motivate people to say “yes” to joining us in realizing our vision?
Heath proves that trust and purpose–based on a palpable concern for others–are key to having a high performing team. When we’re clear about why we’re here, where we’re going, who we serve and how we’re getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled. As a consequence, the natural response is that people seek out ways to collaborate, execute and bring bold visions to reality. This is the reason Heath believes that for all of our differences, we are stronger together than we could ever be alone.
Heath is the only professional in Canada certified to deliver and facilitate the Principles of Persuasion, an evidence-based program based on the work of renowned psychologist Dr. Cialdini which dramatically enhances one’s ability to drive and inspire change.
Heath has a degree from the Wharton School of Business. He works with clients across the world in a variety of industries including government, international affairs, consumer products, restaurant, hospitality, telecommunications, education, non-profit, financial and banking services. Heath lives in Montreal, Canada.
How the Best Team Pulls Together
Today’s workplaces can be full of cynicism and self-interest. With change and disruption as constants, it’s easy to forget that trust-based relationships are the foundation for achievement. Through stories, research and basic science, Heath explains the three major shifts that will help build a culture of trust and create ideal conditions for teams to be successful. When your people work together to confront external threats, they’ll get more done, with less stress, and actually have fun doing it. Heath reveals the secrets to rallying your team around a clearly-articulated purpose- because when you’re clear about who you serve, where you’re going and how you’re getting there, the natural response is to trust, collaborate and bring bold visions to reality.
Foster a Purpose-Driven Culture and Inspire Everyone to Action
Imagine a world in which your people wake up inspired to go to work, feel valued while they’re there, and return home fulfilled by the work they do. To bring that world into reality, you must start with a simple question: WHY? In today’s most successful organizations, leaders tap into the power of purpose by articulating a vision of the future and creating trust-based environments in which people naturally work together to achieve extraordinary things. Through stories, studies and science, Heath shows audiences that the WHY is at the center of it all- and the key to success and fulfillment on both an individual and organizational level.
The Skills, Tips, & Behaviors that Build Trust, Gain Commitment and Inspire Change
Our ability to influence wisely and effectively- to get people to listen, to trust, and act on what we say- is arguably the most important skill for reaching our greatest potential. Though we face these challenging interpersonal situations every single day, rarely do we have the opportunity to sharpen these skills and see the difference between what works and what doesn’t. In this fast-paced presentation, Heath illustrates the most effective, scientifically proven ways to influence and impact the people around you and your team. Like all of Heath’s talks, Interact with Influence is evidence-based and highly customized for each audience.
How to Think, Act and Communicate like the world's most Trusted Advisors
When people think, act, and communicate as a Trusted Advisor, they dramatically increase productivity, improve business results, and reduce stress. Whether working internally as a business partner, or externally with customers, clients and stakeholders, the impact is the same: greater capacity, more satisfaction, and less friction. Simply put, high-trust individuals and teams outperform low-trust organizations in every key business metric: profitability, revenue growth, employee engagement, customer service, retention, and more. In this program, Heath teaches the key skills and mindset that will usher you and your team into the vital (and valuable) role of Trusted Advisors.
Leaders Eat Last
Heath draws on material from Simon Sinek’s second book, Leaders Eat Last, and his own examples of working within extraordinary teams, to explain how leaders can harness the natural biological drivers that exist in us all to create an environment where people are inspired to cooperate to create remarkable results.
Start With Why
Heath Slawner shares a powerfully simple idea, discovered by Simon Sinek, called “The Golden Circle” and builds upon it with examples and stories that bring it to life. This simple idea explains how great leaders, companies, and organizations that inspire us are able to do so naturally and consistently. “The Golden Circle” unravels the mystery of how we must think, act and communicate to inspire others. Here’s a hint: it’s not about changing who we are, it’s about understanding who we are.
