Shift Your Brilliance - Harness the Power of You, Inc.

Are you waiting for your company or organization to do something? Well, guess what? They are waiting for you to take ownership. The “adult daycare center” is closed and you are now responsible for developing yourself and producing results. Business change is moving at the speed of light and to keep pace your organization needs you to be your own career architect. What is driving this line of thinking? McKinsey & Company forecasts that by 2025, automation technology innovations will assume tasks now performed by 250 million knowledge workers worldwide, freeing the remaining workforce to devote time and energy to more creative pursuits. Whether you hold a leadership position or not, repositioning yourself to revitalize your role within your current team or company is a powerful tool for professional development and rapid career growth.

Shift Your Brilliance – Leading Amidst Uncertainty

Business change is happening at the speed of light. The leadership skills of yesterday will not carry the day in the new and rapidly evolving business landscape. McKinsey & Company forecasts that by 2025, automation technology innovations will assume the tasks now performed by 250 million knowledge workers worldwide. To stay relevant and competitive, even the most senior leaders must reposition themselves and their companies – and this will take a mindset reset. Simon will address the critical strategies that empower individuals to lead without a title and stay relevant in every economy while escalating their impact. He will share core principles for acquiring a forward-looking mindset while guiding participants on how to discover the insight needed to be a leader for the future. Finally, Simon will challenge you to commit to becoming the Chief Breakthrough Officer in your organization.

Brilliant Living – Own Your Future

Welcome to the New Normal where there are never enough hours in the day to do everything you want to do. This is a time in history when professionals take their timid feet off the brakes of life, career, and business, and accelerate into the future. I have good news for you. The good old days may be behind us, but there are magnificent days just around the corner. Enough waiting around; enough biting your nails; enough tapping your feet; enough wishing and waiting for something to happen. Consider this your nudge, your push, your invitation to show up in a big way. Now is the time to make something happen. Simon will share insights on how he reinvented himself at Disney as well as key insights that he’s learned while working with 1,500 organizations in 45 countries over the past 15 years. Brilliant Living will teach you how to make something happen instead of playing it safe. You have a choice to make.

Releasing Leadership Brilliance

Winning organizations fully engage their employees' minds, hearts, and discretionary effort in building value. Equip your leaders and managers for their central role in igniting and sustaining employee engagement. This program enables leaders and managers to release their own brilliance so that they are able to help unleash the best in their people. Prepare your leaders to think about their roles in a new way and focus them on the key behaviors and essential organizational ingredients needed to motivate and inspire people to drive results.

Brand the Moment – Platinum Service with a Brilliant Touch

The Center for Customer Driven Quality at Purdue University reports that 90% of American consumers form their perception of companies based primarily on the service experience. Customers buy more frequently, make more transactions and are willing to pay more per transaction when they deal with companies who provide them with a superior service experience. On the other hand, we all know what happens when a business disappoints a customer! To become a brilliant brand that focuses on “Platinum Service with a Brilliant Touch”, every team member must feel a significant sense of personal ownership. From the front line to the executive suite, Customer Love is all about re-enlisting heads, hearts and hands to create internal alignment, brand longevity, and customer loyalty. Unleash a fresh way of thinking about the customer experience. Start a process that will transform your organization’s culture into one that consistently delivers Platinum Service. Teach your team members how to achieve Platinum Service from the inside out and adopt it as a way of life.

Stop Selling and Start Connecting

The Gallup Organization states that 70 percent of human decision-making is emotional and 30 percent is rational. When buyers emotionally connect with a brand, they buy more, pay a higher margin, and tell others about their experience. It is imperative for sales professionals to stop selling and start connecting. When they sell, that’s a transaction. However, when they connect, a relationship is created for the life of the brand. This shift in selling has tremendous upside potential as organizations experience disruptive market forces, a change in client needs, and unseen economic headwinds. Sales professionals who intend to grow market share by acquiring new customers and increasing margins from existing customers must examine their sales edge

  • Your enthusiasm is contagious and was just what everyone needed on that Monday morning to revive and awaken their leadership brilliance. The feedback we have already received about your presentation has been overwhelmingly positive. Our bookstore sold out of your book seconds after your presentation, and the book signing line itself was proof that the ASHRM attendees loved what you had to say and wanted more!

  • Your morning keynote made such an impression on the attendees that your afternoon session had one of the largest crowds ever for a breakout in the 25-year history of this conference.
