My speaking topics...
The art of building great teams
This program is for any company that needs better teamwork, a healthier culture or improved staff engagement. It impacts sales teams, leadership teams and technical teams. It leaves people feeling empowered and united. Most teams have more potential and capacity than they demonstrate. This presentation focuses on helping people to become effective team players by helping each other to willingly shift their behaviour, habits and results.
Lisa demonstrates how team members can inspire others to deliver long-term positive outcomes. She helps individuals to utilise the two most important forms of feedback to multiply their own effectiveness and release the talents of those around them.
- How to build a culture of connection, co-operation and excellence and bring clarity to the team’s purpose
- Increase team energy, engagement and interaction and raise team performance by capitalising on strengths
How to Raise Your Performance, Your Thinking and Your Results
In this presentation audience members will recognise and adopt the habits and actions that positively influence and shape their thinking, their expectations and their performance. Lisa McInnes-Smith is an expert at helping people increase their capacity and transform their personal performance.
Setting people on a strategic pathway of continuous improvement, Lisa helps identify what energises, engages, inspires and motivates individuals, while also pointing out what robs, deflates and saps their energy. In this up-lifting, fun-filled presentation Lisa will help raise the desire to step up and tackle the tasks that take us to the next level of achievement.
- The power of full engagement for creating personal and professional satisfaction and helping individuals to recognize the contribution they make to the company & what it means to perform at your maximum capacity
- The skills for better communication and how to generate supportive feedback and turn it into better performance
Building Courage in Times of Crisis
Courage is that unquantified capacity to step above negative circumstances and crises and develop a mindset of possibilities and action. Courage is activated when you help others to see their potential and their options and include them in the bigger journey. It takes courage to initiate new behaviours, to innovate new thinking and to create new modes of operating.
It produces fruitfulness when you begin to know and encourage people at a deeper level.
To be a part of a significant team effort, it takes commitment, contribution and more courage; courage to adapt to others, courage to handle conflict kindly and courage to be responsible for what you begin.
This session includes:
- How to empower people to act courageously and creatively.
- Enabling courageous conversations that we need to have.
- How to think “we” instead of “me”; unity and community.
- How to keep calm, connect deeply with our people and build hope.
- How to affirm attitudes, habits and behaviour that serve the current environment.
- How to be a positive influence to those around you.
How a crisis can help you create some of your best ideas.
When we are under pressure we often think very differently. How to harness the problem-solving skills in your team. How to minimise fear and raise our ability to think creatively. The brain can’t hold two different opposing thoughts at the same time.
Lisa will help you and your people to FOCUS on what can be done as well as what might be done. She empowers people to be problem solvers and possibility thinkers. If you need clarity, new ideas and a big list of future possibilities Lisa’s session could be invaluable.
It’s amazing how quickly she can help people move from fear to courage and from inaction to action.
