TOPICS

KEYNOTE/WORKSHOP: Re-Wiring Leadership

Topic: Leading for high performance

How do we lead our people to perform at their best in the 21st Century? Most leadership lessons are observational, but in this keynote Tony focuses on the science behind why our people do and don't perform at their peak and how leaders unknowingly affect this equation.

Performance Science shows us that there are four universal human factors that drive performance, behaviour and emotional conflict. When we use these Performance Triggers, the chemicals that keep us focussed and motivated increase, and activity shifts to the most effective brain regions. This helps keep people focussed, proactive and able to choose the most effective behaviours.

The audience will take away four key things that undeniably boost performance in today's workplace and will better understand what drives behaviour and ultimately the performance of their people.

Take-Aways

  • An understanding of what triggers high performance
  • A clear realisation of how leaders impact people's ability to perform at their best
  • How to use the concepts of Autonomy, Belonging, Consistency and Status to influence performance
  • The high performance environment

KEYNOTE/WORKSHOP: Re-Wiring Performance

Topic: Performance and Productivity

In the new economy, there is a new definition of performance. We need to consistently do our best thinking and perform at our best mentally. We can't keep doing the same things we did last year and expect to be more successful. But how do we continually operate at full intensity without burning out?

This session shows how we are actually wired NOT to do our best work in today's environment and how our current way of working is at odds with what the science tells us would be most effective.

Through some entertaining thought experiments and fascinating presentation of performance science, participants will leave with strategies to get into the Performance Zone more often and stay there for longer - helping them do their best thinking and perform at their full potential every hour of every day.

Take-Aways:

  • Understanding the performance zones
  • How we are hardwired NOT to perform at our best in today's workplace and what we need to do about it
  • Strategies for beating procrastination and other unproductive, low-motivation behaviours
  • Strategies for managing emotions and stress so we can perform at our best more often and for longer

KEYNOTE/WORKSHOP: The Rules of Behaviour

Topic: Managing and Changing Behaviours

Why do we find it so hard to change habits that we know are unproductive?

How do we influence other people's behaviour so that we get the best outcomes?

Behaviour has been studied for centuries, but the basic rules are pretty simple. In this session, Tony shows the audience two sets of rules.

Firstly we explore some universal guiding principles that explain why we choose the behaviours that we do. And secondly, we look at some hard and fast rules that we need to following if we want to change behaviour. By understanding the performance science and physiology behind how new behaviours are formed, the audience will leave with clear strategies to change their habits, behaviours and thought patterns as well as an understanding of how to influence the behaviour of others.

Take-Aways:

  • An understanding of what drives behaviour
  • 'Facing the truth' about why we sometimes choose unproductive, but comfortable behaviours
  • Strategies for identifying and executing high performance behaviours
  • The keys to forming habits
