HANDLING CHANGE
If You Don't Like Change - You Are Going To Hate Extinction
Change is a constant. You can either choose to embrace it or watch as you organization disintegrates right before your eyes.

Some people embrace change. Some people just go with the flow and deal with it only when they have to. Then there are those few, die hard, stubborn, inflexible, obstinate people out there, who are going to fight changing to the bitter end. In today’s accelerating pace of technological change, if you plan on WINNING, SUCCEEDING, and STAYING ON TOP, you better pay attention to the ever-changing landscape. Blind devotion to past technologies, methodologies, systems and procedures is a success killer. The pace of change is accelerating in every industry, every market, and in every facet of our daily lives.

This program is designed to show people how to not only handle change, but embrace it; in simple terms, how to cope, control and capitalize on change. It will show you how making a decision to alter your course (change) becomes a catalyst for emerging ideas. Your mind wants a direction, a course, a decision and when you give it that clarity it rewards you with new hope, inspiration and energy; you quit floundering in your indecision and flourish in your new direction. It puts you in a better frame of mind and you now start seeing how you can make things work rather than dwell in the debilitating mood of self-defeat; changing your mind becomes and energizing force.

LEADERSHIP
The Leadership Formula
The Leadership program focus is on practical, insightful and useful skills that help to make relationships work and companies prosper. Designed with the goal of helping organizations thrive in today's marketplace, Mr. Stevenson identifies how to start, maintain, and deepen working relationships. This program starts with the nine elements of the Leadership Formula then delves even deeper into the philosophy of relationships. Robert Stevenson addresses courage and challenge, confidence and commitment, compassion and communication, change, cooperation, and control.

TEAM BUILDING
I've Got Your Back
For your organization to succeed in this ever changing environment you need to be certain you are running at peak performance; all resources must be utilized to full potential. When considering the resources of an organization, its most valuable asset is always its human resources. To be able to maximize results, you need to be able to maximize Operations, Preparations, Motivations, and Expectations. Robert Stevenson has developed a program that addresses the many aspects of teamwork and how to make it function at its optimum potential.

Great TEAMWORK is the true reason for success of any company and it rests in the hands of their employees Coming Together as ONE.

STRATEGIC PLANNING
Riding a New Wave To Success
Mr. Stevenson has developed this program to facilitate the Strategic Planning process. This program enables the organization to get a handle on what it is doing right, where it can improve, and what must be done to reach the goals being set. Some of the greatest experts for any business are their own people. Utilizing various aspects of dynamic interaction, Mr. Stevenson will take full advantage of the brainpower sitting in the room. With Robert as the catalyst driving the audience, everyone will get involved and in no time be combining their collective brilliance to accomplish far more than previously thought possible. This training session will show participants how to involve their own associates or subordinates in obtaining the best possible solutions for problems and issues they face.

Participants will learn how to dig deep to find what needs improvement and learn how to produce a prioritized strategic action plan intended to improve the organization and better prepare it for today's ever changing environment. Depending on time constraints this program can also give a detailed account of what is going right, and what needs improvement along with having the group produce a prioritized strategic action plan intended to improve the organization and better prepare it for today's highly competitive and ever changing environment. This seminar will prove to be one of the best allocations of corporate resources ever authorized.

SALES
The Answers To Successful Selling Are All Four Letter Words
The art, discipline, techniques of selling have traveled many different paths over the centuries. Whether one is doing research or actually working in businesses it is obvious the path to selling effectively has gone from simple to highly sophisticated and back again. This program doesn't mean to oversimplify the process of selling something, but it will make it understandable and easy to implement by sticking to the basics. The program breaks down the Art and Science of Selling into a no-nonsense set of guidelines that will make even the most novice of salespeople a success.

INNOVATION
The Relentless Pursuit Of Excellence
Simple words like “Why” or “What if” can save a company if asked at the right time. Great leaders see challenges as an invitation for the group to test, justify, explain, and prove ideas. They welcome vigorous dialogue and debate. They see argument and disagreement as catalysts to better solutions. Unfortunately, some managers / bosses / CEOs / companies have instilled such an environment of fear that they seldom, if ever, have anyone question their ideas, policies, procedures, or methods. In an environment where the Top 10 In-Demand Jobs today did not exist in 2004 and the amount of technical information in the world is doubling every 2 years, innovation has become one of the critical functions of survival for companies today.

“Great managers” have no problem admitting a policy or procedure just doesn’t work anymore. They understand you cannot become what you need to be by remaining what you are. This program will teach your participants how to delve, inquire, forget the past, try a clean slate, rewrite the rulebook, involve other fields of expertise, look from a different angle, try to find a 2nd right answer, along with the importance of involving all departments and levels of experience. It will show them how to inspire, exchange ideas, share experiences, describe challenges, have a shared sense of purpose, and learn from each other. If you want to create an Innovative Environment where your people will understand the power and purpose of openly and candidly challenging the rules, understanding the genius of subtraction rather than addition, appreciate that the Hero is the one with ideas and how “not” to succumb to the destructive power of traditional mindsets … then this program is for you.

SUCCESS
Essential Habits For Success
Why is it that some people succeed while others fail? That answer seems to elude most people. With over two decades of research from having interviewed over 10,000 employees, managers and senior executives in over 250 industries, Mr. Stevenson has amassed an enormous data base on the subject of SUCCESS.

That research has helped him write a book addressing what he feels are the Fifty-Two Essential Habits for Success. Mr. Stevenson has designed a study method so “simple” that he will be able to show your attendees how to master all the habits and make them a part of their daily life. A method that will only take a couple of minutes a day. This program is designed to not only help individuals become more talented, motivated, productive, and successful but help organizations do the same by identifying key habits they must possess as well.

    "Thanks so much for suggesting Robert. As I’m sure you know, he was awesome. I think all of our members purchased one of his books. He was the perfect speaker – he contacted our executive director and talked to a few of our members in advance of his presentation. He used several of our company’s logos in his Power Point Presentation – it was nice to see that he took the time and effort to get to know our industry prior to the presentation."
