Every day, in almost every category, superior products, candidates and ideas fail, not for a lack of quality, but for a lack of influence.
The truth is, success in the market place is not automatically conveyed to those who have worked the hardest or studied the most diligently. Rather, it goes to those who have learned how to engage others with their ideas, build alignment around their vision and attract supporters to their cause.
Dan Gregory’s workshops and masterclasses are designed help you increase your influence with your communities, develop greater engagement with and within your team and to generate increased buy in with customers, clients and stakeholders.
Dan has worked with multinational leadership teams across multiple continents - driving clearer and more effective communication and story telling, with professional services firms and B2B sales teams - helping smart people become people smart when it comes to pitching for new business, with individuals and up-and-coming leaders - guiding and developing their thought leadership and personal brands as well as with entrepreneurs and marketing teams - taking their business brands from invisible to irreplaceable!
Dan is a master of the science of communication and a prodigious talent in the Persuasive Arts.
Typically, we tend to think of engagement as preceding performance, however, the opposite is actually more likely - build a powerful strategy for performance and engagement tends to follow. In other words, motivation and performance are not a "one way" street but in fact feed off each other.
In this highly practical and extraordinarily transformative program, Dan will help you and your team reassess their personal and professional strategies, build new understanding of their strengths and weaknesses whilst teaching them to "hack human nature".
In this workshop you will:
• Increase your self-awareness using Default Thinking Frames™
• Turn weaknesses into assets while you learn to identify the vulnerabilities in strengths
• Hack human nature to drive performance in yourself and in your team
• Understand what’s really driving the decisions of those around you
• Create a bias towards success and away from failure
Purpose & Positioning
Purpose and cultural alignment are critically important to lifting performance, driving engagement and anchoring productive behaviours at an intrinsic level. But these factors also inform your brand presence, Thought Leadership and positioning in the marketplace.
Your Purpose, and the culture that your organisations creates as a result, is far more than a clichéd collection of vision statements or a list of past achievements, it is the stands you are prepared to take within your industry and the change you’re willing to lead within your community.
In this workshop, you will:
• Define the “4 Stands” that make you and your organisation stand out
• Become an employer of choice "on purpose"
• Link personal purpose to your vision & thought leadership
• Develop a culture based on values-linked behaviours
• Learn to lead, not just your team, but your entire industry
Pitch, Present & Persuade
Whether you are leader trying to generate buy-in and team engagement, a professional trying to pitch your ideas to an investor or leadership team, or a parent trying to get your kids to eat broccoli and spinach - we are all in the business of selling.
If you want to make sure great ideas don't die on the vine, that your business (and bottom line) achieves the success it deserves and that your personal influence, whether one-to-one or one-to-many, is everything you want it to be, you need to master the art of pitching & presenting persuasively.
In this workshop, you will:
• Gain a fast framework for structuring persuasive arguments
• Develop a presentation style that is authentic & unique
• Become comfortable using humour and stories to generate interest & relevance
• Learn how to "read the room" using the Default Thinking Frames™ people use to create meaning in their lives
