Even the best single person can’t succeed alone. Neither can you. Individual productivity is just the beginning of business profitability; the real winner is team productivity. While sports teams may have stand-outs who pull the team’s ranking upward — Peyton Manning and Lebron James come to mind — they couldn’t do their jobs if everyone wasn’t in there supporting them to the best of their abilities. When done well, the team wins championships.

Today’s workplaces require people who can “team well.” Yes, you have to use email and communicate and go to meetings. Yes, there will always be someone who works more slowly. Yes, you have to get agreement on some decisions. But a collective effort is much faster than an individual effort, in almost all instances. It takes less time to get things done with a team. This presentation will teach The Four “Keys” to Becoming a F-A-S-T Team:

  • FAIRNESS: Proper under the rules; honest; just; straightforward.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY: Responsible to someone or for some action; answerable; within one’s power, control, or management.
  • SYSTEMS-THINKING: One impacts the whole; interrelated linkages and interactions between components; a set of correlated people.
  • TECHNOLOGY: Specific methods, materials, and devices used to exchange information; creation and use of technical means; use of knowledge to solve practical problems.
  • Everyone is so overwhelmed with demands today, it’s not uncommon for professionals to work 60 hours a week any more. You’ll learn how to scale back—reduce, reduce, reduce is Laura’s mantra. Laura shows how you to separate the productive wheat from the nonproductive chaff, hone in on high-value tasks, protect the time to do them, and focus on their execution. You’ll find dozens of ways to shrink your to-do list, calendar commitments, distractions, interruptions, information overload, inefficiencies, and energy expenditures. You’ll see how you can be more efficient, organized, and focused, so you can achieve maximum results in minimum time, get out of the office earlier, and get home to the people you love.

    Using a fun, fast-paced, game-show format, your audience members will compete over the bragging rights to the title “THE (your meeting here) PRODUCTIVITY PRO!” Using whole-audience techniques and multi-media, everyone will be involved, all the while building stronger teams and learning what it takes to be productive in today’s busy workplaces. You can expect musical instruments, videos, songs, audience interaction, shouting, prizes, and attendees up on stage. But it’s not ALL fun and games! Great content is added to the fun—all customized around the performance focus areas YOU want to highlight for your meeting.

    In this keynote, emerging leaders, high potentials, and new leaders will learn how to achieve peak performance in the workplace. In this competitive economy, just being able to do your job is no longer enough. Competence is expected; you’ve got to be SuperCompetent to get an edge. SuperCompetent will give you proven methods to reach your maximum potential and achieve breakthrough results. You’ll get to your productive best by mastering six keys to peak performance.

    What separates an average salesperson from a high-performing salesperson? They spend more time on activities that produce sales and less time on those that don’t. Simple concept? Yes, but difficult to implement in reality, because most traditional sales training doesn’t focus on productivity, and “old school” time management techniques have little application for the salesperson. In this session, you’ll learn “real world” methods to manage your schedule, tasks, devices, follow-ups, and email.

    Leaders are so overwhelmed trying to balance the day-to-day operational responsibilities of their jobs, as well as find time to work with their teams and think about strategic initiatives, they struggle with time management and life balance. This keynote, based on Laura’s book of the same title, identifies twelve practices that will enable leaders to be effective and efficient, grouped into three areas where leaders spend their time, called 3T Leadership: Strategic Thinking (Business), Teamwork (Employees), and Tactics (Self). For each practice, Stack offers advice from her 25 years in the trenches, working with thousands of leaders globally. You’ll receive scores of new ideas on how you, your team, and your organization can boost productivity.


    “You truly are incredible! You are the perfect speaker for any audience and the perfect person to partner with! You “get it,” so much more than an amazing presentation. You customized to our audience, used their buzzwords, and incorporated whatever I asked into the presentation. I received terrific feedback from anyone I spoke to today. Thank you so much!”
