Your presentation was what everyone was raving about every chance they could!

Julie Martinez, Texas Citizen Corps Manager, Annual Texas Unites Conference

“I had seen you speak at another conference and personally asked to get you to our conference. I wanted my attendees to experience firsthand what a true professional presenter was about. You sir, have set the bar way high for future conferences.

I only wish I could have personally stayed in the room to see what all the hoopla was about. I kid you not, attendees took every opportunity to tell me about how your session was by far the best they had been to at any conference. I would definitely love to have you come to every conference and wow them all the same.”

Sometimes it takes a little moving around to learn something new.

As the kind of person who does not sit still very well, I do enjoy presenting in a way that allows the audience to standup, move around and experience their learning. During this clip, you will hear me use the word selfish a couple of times.  The reason I focus on that word is so the audience realizes what they are hearing today is to make themselves better, NOT their spouse, co-workers, family, church members, etc.  Today is about them becoming better and more effective as a person.  Enjoy this clip from the Texas CERT conference.

How Valuable is it to be part of a Professional Association?

Last week I had the opportunity to train a workshop and keynote for the International Association of Administrative Professionals regional conference for OK and AR. Many of these individuals are executive assistants to top leaders in their companies.  In my own mind, I try to think about the challenges they face on a daily basis, not only working with their individual manager(boss), but several of the attendees were the only administrator within a whole department at a corporation.  Can you imagine the types of individuals and personalities they learn to deal with on a daily basis?  I don’t know for sure, but I am curious how much training is offered for administrative support teams to excel and reach their full potential?

I heard some excellent stories during both of my sessions, but my most memorable time was during my keynote as we played a round of the Family Feud.  It is always fun to watch the competition come out amongst teams.  What I realized during my 2-3 hours at the conference, is these members had a camaraderie due to their professional experiences.  When you mention like-minded individuals, this association (like most) is targeted.  This allows for the attendees and members to learn from and discuss real-time topics to support each other.

So what associations should I be more involved with to become better?  Which ones should you not only join, but become an active member to grow and develop in your role?

Every type of Business is a People Business

This week, Scott had the opportunity to present for a traditional manufacturing company with plants in multiple states and internationally. The main focus of the conference was sharing  outcomes of quality initiatives developed and demonstrated by those attending.  So if that is the case, why was Scott part of this equation?  He is not a manufacturing expert.  Who were the attendees?  What roles did they have within the company?  Were they in charge of leading others towards success and achieving excellence?  Absolutely.

Even when the focus is on quality, on-time delivery, service and cost containment, it takes PEOPLE to make this happen.  Rockline Industries invested to provide personal development for their leaders at this conference.  When leaders are “in control” of their personality and understand the personalities of their team, then they should be much more effective in communicating with them.  Will Rockline get an ROI on their investment?

Colleen Vollbrecht, Continuous Learning and Development Manager, “We All have a Hand in Quality Conference”
“The training Scott provided our team yesterday was referred to multiple times today. It obviously had a big impact.  Thanks for helping make our event a success.”

Are you providing the training needed so your team can become BETTER?

Last week, I was in Midland/Odessa, TX presenting for a local company, Total Office Solution (TOS), with Northwest Arkansas business owner Tim Stanley of Total Document Solutions. Now I typically have fun training on the topics I present, but we added a little flavor to this training in TX.  TOS had a specific intent to train on the personality types and communication styles so their team could improve upon their level of sales and service.  The added twist to the presentation was incorporating a business owner from the same industry, but NOT the same market, to teach on branding, desired outcomes, achieving goals, etc.  It was condensed to a half-day session and designed for not only each individual to gain insight on themselves, but for the company’s leadership to see their overall team dynamics.

What will be their ROI for this training session?  The leadership team has already expressed that they will incorporate what they have learned about the opportunities within each personality type to develop the skills of their team members.  Additionally, the company is a for-profit organization.  As confirmed in the meeting, everyone in the company is part of the marketing team because everyone represents the company no matter what role they are in (e.g. delivery, customer service, sales, billing, etc.).  As a whole, there was an understanding for the need to position the TOS brand as the SOLUTION within their market because quality service is now surpassing the desire for a specific brand of product.

New Content Focused on Preparing Students for College and Career.

A week ago, Scott, and soon to be 20 of his best friends, met up in Cincinnati, OH for a weekend of training and certification with Monster.com’s Making It Count organization. It was intense and fun to be with so many professional speakers.  As of Friday, Scott received the official word that he is certified to “Edutain” both of the high school programs: Making Your College Search Count (focused on Juniors in high school) and Making your College and Career Count (focused on Seniors in high school).  The 40 min. presentations are content rich and very effective for the students.  Guidance Counselors and Administration will see the immediate impact from the content.  Go to Making It Count to read the story about the founder.

If you are interested in having these presentations delivered to your student body, contact Making It Count to register.  There is NO cost to the students or the school.  It is presented for FREE.
