You are a leader - no question about that.
The only question is whether you know how powerful a leader you can be and whether you are leading people in the most productive direction. If you would like to know how you can benefit from one of the least understood, most feared, and deeply underutilized leadership skills of all time, this is the workshop for you.
In this engaging, and eye-opening presentation, John K. Bates, a world renowned Leadership Communications Expert, dives deep into the history of eye contact and the value of authenticity in the workplace as a leader and as an employee, as well as its value in everyday life.
John bases his work in Human Evolutionary Biology and Human Neurophysiology and explains not only why authenticity is so difficult, but also why it is so meaningful, so appreciated and why it is the only way to achieve true leadership success. John shares stories from his own experiences as well as from those of people like top-rated TED speaker Brene Brown and world famous public speaker Les Brown.
Practice makes perfect. A number of audience members will have an opportunity to tell their 1 - 3 minute story with an immediate critique by Executive Whisperer and coach, John Bates. Come ready to share a pitch, your personal introduction or a portion of a speech you have coming up... and remember, we'll be looking for the authentic side of whatever you share.
The "How to... Workshop" series is dedicated to giving you the keys to a successful business, from creation to exit. As with all our events, the "How to... Workshop" is interactive and informal so bring your questions with you!
