What Garrison Wynn Talks About:
In Demand: How To Make Sure People See Your Value
It doesn’t matter how skilled you are or how much value you offer if no one wants what you have. Leadership, change management, sales, customer service, marketing, and safety all have one thing in common: they require a specific level of personal influence to be sustainably successful. This customized keynote session combines humorous storytelling with serious takeaways that will bring all the elements of your conference together for maximum impact.
We hear the term “employee engagement” a lot these days. We also hear how recognition, goal alignment and a clear path to success can create it. But how can engagement produce a sustainable culture of safety as we strive for zero incidents? Drawing from Gallup research across 46 countries, this highly entertaining session reveals how skilled leaders at all levels create safety: They give employees what they value most – the feeling that they are valued. From this session, leaders acquire specific communication tools they can use to dramatically reduce resistance to change and to create a safer work environment. The impact of this program reaches far beyond the session itself, creating an emotional shift that fuels immediate implementation.
Be prepared to laugh and learn as this research-based keynote reveals how top performers harness the power of their advantages, even when the odds are not in their favour. Business relationship expert and Amazon.com best-selling author Garrison Wynn delivers a high-impact program that answers two monumental questions: How do you get people to do what you want them to do? And how can you get better results from the challenging people you encounter along the way? With an emphasis on what you can actually walk out of the session with and achieve tomorrow, this program shows you how to weather the perfect storm while still looking really good in a raincoat!
Making the Most of Difficult Situations: Changing Markets, Changing Times
This funny, insightful keynote combines relationship building with no-fluff motivation and change to deliver real solutions in uncertain times. Garrison examines the challenges we face and shows how we can laugh at our problems while using them as catalysts for success. This session covers a lot of ground and provides no-cost, easily implemented, proven solutions that your people can use right away.
Getting Great Results: Turning Talent into Performance
In this keynote, results from the largest management survey ever conducted are combined with real-life management and leadership solutions to get the most from your people, regardless of their skill level. Participants learn to manage their ego-driven top producers, how to listen like leaders and make their people feel heard, how to hire for talent and turn it into top performance, how to create a culture of excellence with their most promising people, and how to help their low performers to fight their way to the middle.
Garrison was able to get through to our people like no one else. We thought we knew it all; we were wrong.
