She understands the needs, wishes and language of each client by research, interviews, and visits to facilities such that when she appears on stage she seems to be part of the organization or company.
Both her change management books and her stage programs have created clear, actionable paths for organizations from Ritz-Carlton Hotels to IBM Sales to the government of St. Petersburg, Russia.

What Janet Lapp Talks About:
Plant your Feet Firmly in Mid-Air: Lead Through Change
What would happen if everyone in the organization saw the positives, not the problems in current changes? What would it look like if people broke out of their molds, push their boundaries, and developed a new set of skills? What if people knew how to change immediately? Research indicates that 69% of the workplace is not fully engaged. How much time and money does this group cost an organization? How much time and energy would be saved if everyone learned a common language to identify and contain resistance? How much time and money would be saved if everyone became rekindled their passion, became fully engaged, and took daily and consistent action toward their own goals and the goals of the organization?
Audiences experiencing this high-energy, high-humor presentation learn how to:
- a. guide themselves and others through ambiguity and uncertainty in a positive and productive way.
- b. keep morale high, to retain the best and encourage the rest.
- c. develop the courage to face new obstacles and challenges with a strong forward momentum.
People leave with a positive mindset which is open to change and opportunity. By so doing, they are more likely to see opportunities, not roadblocks, take more personal responsibility and accountability for change, and move themselves and their teams faster into the future.
Leaders help others see the future more clearly and have the confidence that they can get there, they return to work with a renewed enthusiasm and spread it to others around them.
The Psychology of Customer Experience
Dr Janet Lapp’s research on the Psychology of Customer Experience has revealed the top four psychological needs of customers, which, if met, can propel organizations to sustainable growth and market dominance. Audiences learn the latest neuro-marketing techniques that create experiences to maintain loyal and emotionally connected customers, similar to Apple, Starbucks, Lexus, and Harley Davidson. This is not a standard customer service program. Teams will understand the unmet psychological needs of their customers and learn to meet them in practical, easy-to-apply ways.
The front line will learn what specific actions they must take on a daily basis to create the unique experiences that capture hearts and minds of their customers, and leaders will be able to apply these same skills and tools to create loyalty among their teams. This program is available as a keynote presentation, as well as interactive half and full day sessions.
It is amazing how much she was able to discover about the Allstate culture and weave it into her program, it was like she was one of us. She opened our leadership's eyes to what has changed, what they need to do, and gave them the push to do it.
