The Untapped Advantage of Organizational Health
Addressing the model in his latest book, The Advantage, Pat makes the overwhelming case that organizational health “will surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.” 

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
According to Pat, teamwork remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare. He makes the point that if you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time. 

How to Keep Your Best People
In this talk, Pat addresses perhaps the most timeless and elusive topic related to work: job misery. Based on his book, The Three Signs of a Miserable Job, Pat delivers a message that is as revolutionary as it is shockingly simple. He dismantles the root causes of frustration and anguish at work: anonymity, irrelevance and immeasurement. 

Getting Naked

Recommended Speaker of the Week: Phil Hansen, Internationally-recognized Multimedia Artist, Author and Innovator

What makes Phil Hansen a perfect fit for your event?

910102e6486442bc30fbc5952c254a9f9882942f_240x180Phil Hansen is an internationally recognized multimedia artist, speaker and author. Rightfully referred to as “the Artist for the People,” Phil Hansen brings his remarkable artwork to life, despite immense adversity. While in college, Phil developed a tremor due to nerve damage in his hand, causing him to drop out of art school and put his dreams aside. One trip to the doctors office inspired Phil Hansen to “embrace the shake” and use his one flaw to his advantage.

As an artist, he is most widely known for his meta-art, videos that document the creation process (sometimes even through destruction), showing millions that art is action, not just result. Today, Phil Hansen is one of the most prolific artists of his time and a highly sought after keynote speaker on the topics of motivation, leadership and change. Using his inspirational story, Phil moves people around the world and helps audiences examine what they believe is holding them back and encourages them to use it to their advantage. Here are some of his programs:

Programs:

Embrace the Shake: Transforming Problems into Opportunities
Like Phil’s art, his story and message of “Embrace the Shake” defies conventional thinking by approaching limitations as opportunities. To get there we have to stop relying on external resources and tap into our own internal resources, most importantly, our creativity.

The Art of Collaboration: (An Interactive Art Experience)
In addition to his inspiring talk, Artist Phil Hansen designs a hands-on interactive art experience that brings your audience together to create a stunning and unexpected work of art. This fun, engaging and collaborative project furthers the experience of embracing challenges through teamwork, and demonstrates the power of coming together to create something new. Client keeps the final artwork.

Time Management Expert Jeff Davidson Shares Advice on How To Build Trust!

Networking O_24ad3a7b1db6851846d04439b3c43168Untitled-1 (2)is a huge part of fostering professional relationships, but what about when the initial connection is over? Thankfully, Goal-Setting Speaker and author Jeff Davidson has a few tips that can help you make a lasting impression!

If only a simple method was available to predict when you will make a strong connection with someone, be it in a business situation, social situation, or otherwise.

Actually, a formula does exist: if you are known, then liked, and then trusted, everything can flow from that.

Between any two people, getting to know one other, liking each other, and trusting each other, often follows a particular path. The time length of the journey can vary widely but almost in every case, few if any effective shortcuts are available when it comes to trust. Let’s examine the three elements, one at a time:

To Be Known

You have to meet someone, to converse, learn about them, have them learn about you, and perhaps have some follow up. If you are alike in some way, or have something in common, that helps.

To Be Liked

What is the key to being liked by someone? Usually it starts with you liking them. This sound like a circular explanation, but it is not. When you convey to other parties that you like them, approve of them, enjoy being around them, understand where they’re coming from, or have commonalities, if they reciprocate it happens nearly instantaneously.

Hundreds of facial movements that most of us might never completely understand, in and around our eyes, corners of our mouths, and foreheads, indicate to one another when, indeed, we like the person we’ve encountered.

To Be Trusted

Becoming known and becoming liked are relatively easy compared to the third component of human interaction, which is to be trusted. While it’s possible to meet someone whom you trust almost instantly, in many cases that represents a leap of faith.

If you walk into an automobile dealership and encounter a sales person who you trust, it might be because this person has mastered a variety of verbal and nonverbal cues to indicate to you that he or she will be okay to work with.

Trust can be a fleeting phenomena. One major withdrawal, in other words one incidence of apparent betrayal, can bring level of trust crashing down. Thereafter, liking one another can be in jeopardy. You still know each other but in a different light.

Generally, trust builds up over time. To move from acquaintanceship, to friendship, to something else, such as long-term business associates or long-term social partners, takes a while to develop.

The Bank is Open

Building trust is akin to building up a bank savings account. You have to keep making deposits, which is synonymous with positive indications that you can be counted on. Now and then you can make a withdrawal, which is synonymous with something not going exactly as each of you might have hoped it would.

The savings account grows to a healthy sum if the deposits are overwhelming compared to the withdrawals. So, too, with building trust. Keep making deposit after deposit with few if any withdrawals, and lo and behold the trust builds.

3 Key Tips for Choosing your Next Business Speaker

business speaker

As a forward-thinking leader in business, you likely already recognize the inherent benefits of hiring a business speaker to deliver a keynote address at your next professional conference or internal professional development event. Professional business speakers have a wealth of insight and expertise to share with corporate audiences regarding both specific business strategy and personal growth.

Of course, selecting the right business speaker for your next event can be challenging given the array of business speakers available for hire and the diversity of topics they cover. You want a business speaker that will both impress and inspire your audience, which means selection should be given careful consideration.

Tip #1: Look for a speaker with a take-home message that aligns with your company’s specific goals.

While hiring a professional business speaker may be a way to encourage excitement for your company event, a speaker’s primary objective should be to educate and motivate your team to make real changes in the workplace. This means you’ll want to identify the specific goals or areas of improvement that a potential speaker could drive home in his or her speech. Is internal communication the problem? Is your company aiming to undergo a significant change in branding or organizational structure? Business speakers often focus on more specific topics than you might assume. The business speakers we partner with here at Eagles Talent touch on a range of niche business topics; for example, speaker Juliet Funt addresses the specific challenge of overcoming the “Age of Overload” in the workplace and offers strategies for increasing productivity.

Tip #2: Seek out a business speaker that can connect with your team.

A business speaker’s message may be on point with your company’s goals, but if it isn’t delivered in a manner that optimally engages your team, you’re not getting your money’s worth. Before hiring a business speaker, think about your team’s overall “personality” and how you know them to best respond in the workplace. Do they thrive in a high-energy environment that demands participation? Do they respond best when presented with an abundance of data and the opportunity to provide feedback? Look for speakers that closely align with the answer to these questions. Our business speakers here at Eagles Talent reflect a diverse range of speaking styles. Daymond John, for example, is known for delivering a charismatic speech that is both full of energy and emotionally poignant. Find video clips of all of our business speakers speaking on stage to make a more informed selection.

Tip #3: Choose a speaker with a relatable personal story.

A message can really hit home when an audience can relate to the individual that delivers it. It’s often the case that we’re more receptive to advice that’s delivered from someone who understands us and has been in our shoes. That’s why at Eagles Talent, we’re proud to work with business speakers that have truly inspiring stories about personal growth and triumph in the world of business. Our business speakers have worked from the ground up to earn their success, and their stories of struggle and sacrifice resonate with business audiences around the world.
