Technical skills will get you the job, human skills will get more clients, increase your productivity and happiness

We go to school and what do we learn? Technical skills. It’s all about the technical skills, and don’t get me wrong, we need them. But who cares how smart you are and how good you are at your job if you can’t communicate, struggle to manage yourself under stress, and lack empathy?

Would you rather work for a highly technical manager that has a big ego, lacks self-control or work with an above-average technical manager that is trustworthy, patient, and motivating?

Human Skills are not taught at school and not the primary focus in the work environment. But I promise you that when you spend time developing your human skills, the results will start showing without even trying.

In the presentation, I will focus on the strategies to improve your human skills to change the behavior that may be holding you back so you can be more productive, experience total freedom, and be happier. I will show you how to unleash the more human side of you.

How to use emotional intelligence to become a better person at work and at home

EQ is the new IQ, learn how to stop letting your emotions control you

“People will forget what you said and what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel, ~Maya Angelou”

Why is it that 70% of people with average IQs are doing better than those with the highest IQs? Why is it that we have managers and CEOs that are not performing or that are not liked by their employees?

Emotional intelligence is definitely one of the key elements in improving your leadership skills in life, at work, and within your volunteer organization like ASHRAE.

During the presentation, we will go through the meaning of emotional intelligence, the 4 different skills, and strategies to improve EQ to prove that Emotional intelligence is the key to your success!

Everyone Communicates, Few connects

Talk is easy! Learn how to really connect when you communicate and avoid misunderstandings, missed opportunities, conflict, and lack of teamwork.

Anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. Success is related to your ability to connect. I will share some principles and Practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting.

The ability to connect with others is a major determining factor in reaching your full potential. It’s no secret! Connecting is a skill you can learn and apply in your personal, professional, and family relationships.

It requires self-growth to discover your purpose, become a better human being, advance your career, be a better spouse/parent, reach your financial goals and enrich your soul. Are you putting in the work to be the best version of yourself? I will help you understand how to reach your full potential and become more successful with a meaningful life

How much of your potential are you using right now? Not enough. Growth just doesn't happen; you need to be intentional about it. Are you putting in the work to be the best version of yourself?

We are all born with incredible potential, and personal development is the tool to reach it. The truth is that most people won’t work on themselves because we are all driven by results, and self-growth takes time.

Selling is like dating. Learn how to close without selling

What is the most important thing in every business? Selling! Without sales, there is no business. But wait! I am not a salesperson, therefore this presentation is not for me. It might surprise you to know but every single human being is in sales, you may not be selling goods but you are selling your ideas, yourself.

A firefighter is trying to educate children on what to do in case of fire and to not play with fire, he is selling them the idea of being safe. A doctor is educating his patient about eating well and exercising, he is selling them the idea of staying healthy so they don’t get sick. An attorney is trying to convince the jury that their client is not guilty. An engineer is trying to sell their idea and concept to the architect or owner. Regardless of your job, you are a salesperson, you represent your company.

In this presentation, we will focus on the 5 keys to increasing your sales influence:

• How belief affects your results
• How to identify ideal clients
• Why relationships matter
• 3 questions to ask in every deal
• The importance of persistence
