Striving for Excellence
Designed for employees, entrepreneurs, and managers, this conference explores the importance of a positive outlook and accountability at work and at home. What would our personal and professional lives look like if we were able to perform to our fullest? The answer to this question and many others are given in this signature keynote presentation, along with the tools and strategies needed to mobilize employees and inspire a winning attitude. Participant interaction and personal narratives from Stephan drive this acclaimed keynote.
Thriving Through Change
It can be difficult to implement organizational change. Employees that are unable or unwilling to make transitions and adopt new methods can pose a serious challenge. So how do employees tackle change? Whether it is before or after the organizational change, this conference keynote will impart the practical strategies and tools needed to respond quickly to change in order to reap the benefits.
All For One
Organizations need teams that comprise employees with shared objectives and who are also willing to surmount shared obstacles. A corporate culture of collaboration and teamwork is therefore an essential building block for any organization. This conference is designed to show your staff how to translate individual human talent and competencies into an effective team strategy. Effective teams who know how to maximize each member's skills into results are teams that will succeed far more than individuals who work in silos.
Impact & Influence
How many people have heard the phrase "that person is a natural-born leader"? Is leadership an innate competency or can people develop to become leaders? This conference is designed for team leaders: Stephan's goal is to impart a framework for spearheading teams, which includes strategies for growing one's influence and impact.
