Dave Mitchell – The Leadership Difference
Peak Performance Culture Webinar Series

8 Programs By This Presenter

This program explores the characteristics of happy, successful people. Using audience interaction, comedy and introspection, Dave and the audience discover what it takes to achieve self- contentment. Taken from Dave’s popular book of the same name!

This program is an award winning seminar and book that can be delivered as a powerful keynote address.  Kick off your event with an interactive presentation that provides both valuable sales and leadership tool AND will get your event attendees buzzing and sharing stories with each other.  The perfect conference opener or closer!

This program will make your clients come racing back for more of what you have to offer. Through a series of dynamic, humorous real-life stories Dave will help your team discover how to identify each customer’s “service hot button” and ensure that you exceed their expectations. From building rapport to executing service recovery, this seminar covers the entire customer service dynamic.

There is a big difference between being a sales person and a sales consultant and today’s discerning consumer demands the latter. Learn the unique perspective of luxury consumers and how to take your selling skills to the next level to meet the expectations of this growing and influential demographic.

This program focuses exclusively on resolving conflict. Dave uses the “Rules of Engagement” to help attendees adopt a more effective mental approach to conflict, reducing concerns to issues rather than to people. Further, this class focuses on a step- by- step model for approaching, discussing and ultimately resolving issues that divide individuals.

This program focuses on the personal characteristics of high performers and how we can develop these attributes within ourselves. Is it possible to excel in all aspects of your life without burning out? This course examines each attendee’s strengths and potential vulnerabilities as they strive to maximize their potential. Life changing!

This program applies the concepts from Dave’s book, Peak Performance Culture:  the Five Metrics of Operational Excellence to leadership.  How do you obtain and sustain your full potential while remaining resilient and balanced in your life?  How do you create a high performance culture and successfully obtain exceptional results from work teams?
