Speaking Topics Include

Selfish, Scared and Stupid

 

Stop fighting human nature. If you want to succeed then you must prepare for failure! Taken from the newly released book of the same title, behavioural strategist Dan Gregory / Kieran Flanagan challenges audiences to step away from the ‘motivational hot air’ and instead design teams, systems and products that align with reality; because we are ALL a little selfish, scared and stupid sometimes.

Key takeaways from this presentation include:

  • Drop the delusion - how to anticipate the worst to ensure the best
  • Systemise success - we can all build excellence into our procedure
  • Motivational fear - how we can harness the basest of human instinct for business greatness

Change

 

SHIFT before the market and drive change by understanding human MOTIVE

In a rapidly evolving business environment, understanding what drives people has never been more important. Whether you work in sales or recruitment, are engaged in building cultures of collaboration, developing human centric innovation or a leader seeking influence, you need to understand the motives that drive human behaviour.

After a career driving change for organisations as diverse as the UN, the NRL and Coca-Cola, Dan Gregory reveals:

  • How to use human motives to drive successful change and innovation
  • How to engage your team and customers at a fundamental level
  • Why change often fails even when the benefits are obvious

Innovation

 

Drive INNOVATION ON PURPOSE and develop your team's IMPOSSIBILITIES

Today, we face challenges in our lives that previous generations could scarcely imagine. Product life-cycles are becoming shorter, staff loyalty is decreasing, deadlines are more pressing, we're on call 24/7, customer expectations are rising and the level of pressure leaders face is excruciating. It's like we're being asked to do the impossible.

With decades of experience in New Product Development and Systems Innovation Dan Gregory reveals:

  • The skill sets required to be more adaptable in a rapidly changing environment
  • How to nurture a culture of resilience and innovation on purpose
  • What it takes for a leader to inspire a team to lift and do the extraordinary

Collaboration

 

Raise your organisation's Collaborative intelligence™ and build a culture with WE-Q™

The increasing interconnectivity of our communities, the complexity and interdependence of the work we do and the unrelenting pressure to innovate have made Collaborative Intelligence™ the killer app. But few of us are prepared for this change having spent our careers in direct competition with even our co-workers.

Using their years of experience developing high achieving, internationally awarded teams, Dan Gregory & Kieran Flanagan reveal:

  • How to create a culture based on "Co-PIs™" not just KPIs
  • How leaders can detoxify a culture and build highly cooperative teams
  • Why successfully adapting to change demands collaboration
