KEY AREAS OF EXPERIENCES/KEYNOTES

Over the years, I have focussed on how to help my clients and their organisations develop strong and effective leaders, while also helping individuals in these organisations to develop personal capacity to deliver the results leaders are looking for. As a result of this focus, my experiences/keynotes are primarily in two key areas:

Leadership

High Performance

LEADERSHIP

Future Proof Your Leadership

Everyone is talking about future proofing their business, and yet, the people to make decisions, create the environment, and drive change are leaders. So, it is even more critical for all leaders to develop self-leadership competencies.These include INTENTION, INFLUENCE, and IMPACT. To realise this, much emphasis must be placed on understanding the difference between command and inspirational leadership, improving accountability, commitment, responsibility, exponential thinking, and agility.

Key take home value: Delegates leave understanding the required leadership competencies, key decisions which need to be made, and how to steer the business in the direction of profit and growth.

(In)Credible Leadership

Leadership is in danger. Complacency is becoming the new normal. With the mounting pressure and demands of change management, leaders must carefully pick and choose their battles. In their efforts to propel action and secure the required investments, many grow frustrated as measurable progress towards moving the conversation forward gets caught in the corporate noise that surrounds them. More than ever, leadership has become an exercise in survival of the fittest – and as a consequence, those leaders who have grown more complacent, are finding it difficult to maintain their competitive edge and thought- leadership footing. Leadership in the 21st century requires mental toughness, stamina and patience.Alex provides key insights on how a leader’s credibility and incredibility can make them more successful.

Key take home value: Leaders will have a fresh perspective on how to develop credibility and authenticity, and how interpersonal skills can enhance staff performance and improve business results.

high performance

NOBODY’S HOLDING A GUN TO YOUR HEAD

The only way for individuals to make a mark in the workplace and in their lives is to build high performance traits. No organisation wants mediocrity or complacency. To deliver the type of results leaders are looking for means forsaking old ways of working. How then do you develop a high performing organisation? Through its people. Which means we must develop high performing individuals. This keynote is a model/framework of key blocks to help your organisation develop individual capacity to meet your strategic objectives. Key take home value: A renewed focus on high performance using an effective framework that works!To become an entrepreneur and grow a successful business, you must hold a concrete, meaningful, and empirically centred vision in your mind at all times. Everything you do inside the business and, to a large extent, outside of it, needs to be subservient to that vision. Even when you do the most menial of tasks, and there’ll be plenty of those, you need to be aware of your big overarching goal, and how your current action serves it.In this experience,Alex shares key insights on how to make a success of entrepreneurship in challenging markets and in a complex and disruptive world.

THE LAST MAVERICK

There is no doubt that the winners in business today are those who break the rules and chart new, creative courses of action. Often, these trailblazers are running new, entrepreneurial businesses, but just as often, they head some of the biggest names in business. But what do individuals, these last mavericks, have in common besides being branded as mavericks? What do they do that others don’t? How do they think? What differentiates extraordinary performers from everyone else? When you consider the best, how can you outperform them? In this thought provoking keynote, Alex shares 5 key insights on becoming a maverick and how individuals and businesses can outperform the very best in their industries and create successful futures.

Key take home value: Delegates learn how to disrupt patterns in their own lives, create new normals, boost ambition, make better decisions, develop greater focus, and self improve to become the rare top performers known as the last mavericks.

FIT FOR PURPOSE

In a difficult global economy, businesses need to introspect and question whether they are fit for purpose. Are your people fit for purpose? The definition of “fit for purpose” is “anything that is good enough to do the job it was made for”. How do you develop fit for purpose leaders, culture, and PEOPLE? Using a 7 step methodology,Alex shares insights on how people can be developed and made future fit for purpose.
