Sally was a vital, positive and engaging expert speaker. Sally was a popular speaker and a vital element of the forum. Her energy and enthusiasm for her subject is infectious, her delivery I would describe as electric as she buzzes across the stage. One delegate described her in the feedback as simply “Brilliant.” I highly recommend Sally as a speaker.

P.UM.P.™ – Pump Up Your Productivity:

How To Be A More Productive Leader

It’s a cruel irony that in a world of immense connectivity, we feel increasingly disconnected and unproductive. Incessant emails, phone calls and social media alerts steal precious productive and personal time. It seems impossible to switch off.

Your audience will:

  • Instantly boost productivity by up to 40%.
  • Identify time waters and how to remove them.
  • understand the importance of goal getting rather than goal setting.
  • take back control of their day.
  • master essential people management skills that can directly impact team and leader productivity.

Aligned with Sally’s book The Productive Leader: Achieve More, Reduce Stress and Gain 2 Hours Per Day.

Self-Leadership: Unleash Your Personal Power!

Flipped Feedback

How Leaders can increase performance, motivate and engage their team

Giving and receiving feedback can automatically trigger anxiety, defensiveness and stress for both the giver and receiver. In one study only 8% of companies surveyed believed their performance management process is highly effective in deriving business value. Flipping feedback equips leaders to hold effective feedback conversations that increase performance, boost motivation and engage their team.

Your audience will:

  • understand what feedback conversations really are and what they shouldn’t be.
  • learn the deeper value of feedback through the 4 A’s.
  • reveal motivators and demotivators that can impact performance.
  • take away the structure and confidence to guide any feedback conversation.
  • learn the one essential secret to change happening post feedback conversations.

Making Managers Productive, Profitable and Promotable.

The Key Skills Every Manager Needs to Lead

 It’s time to change the rhetoric that managers are bad: that people don’t leave organisations they leave managers. Stepping into a management role can be challenging: shifting away from operational tasks or a specialist skillset towards people management. Managers need to master essential people management skills as they shift into leadership. From task to team; from managing own workload to being responsible for others results; to add team leadership into the everyday alongside self-leadership. 

45 min or less presentation – The Big 3!

60min or longer presentation – The Big 5! 

Your audience will:

  • grasp the need to balance task and team; own workload and team performance.
  • discover the value of clear expectations and the impact of assumptions.
  • learn how to drive performance through effective, fast and open feedback.
  • find out how delegating properly can develop, engage and empower.
  • discern when to ask and when to tell.
  • see how they can lead more effectively when they have less answers and more questions.
