How to STAND OUT from the Crowd

Working Together as a Successful Team

In a world that demands more, expects more and pushes back harder than ever before, simply “meeting government standards” is no longer enough. If you want to STAND OUT in a positive way and be seen as a valuable team member, you must find ways to add value, exceed expectations, out-think old ideas and out-shine past performance. You must be able to answer this question:

What do I bring to the table that is so unique and valuable that people
would CHOOSE to be my colleague, coworker and team member?

With insight and humor, Jean delivers strategies to help you handle change with confidence and competence, leverage your strengths, develop new skills and overcome any limitations standing in your way. Life and work are all about choices. When dealing with any workplace situation you can choose to be negative or positive, powerless or powerful. The choices you make and the actions you take as a result of those choices will determine whether you STAND OUT as the person your colleagues and co-workers are proud to work with as part of a successful team.

Gain skills and competencies to:

  • Bring a positive and proactive attitude to work every day.
  • Embrace change without resorting to complaints, anger, apathy or fear.
  • Demonstrate leadership abilities when necessary and appropriate.
  • Communicate openly, honestly and directly to build a climate of trust.
  • Avoid the six communication mistakes busy people make.
  • Create positive outcomes from difficult conversations.
  • Deal with difficult people – without becoming one.
  • Model attitudes and behaviors to earn the respect of colleagues and coworkers.
  • Maintain accountability for your contribution to getting the job done.
  • Accept personal responsibility for advancing your career.
  • Take pride in your work as a vital and valued employee and team member.

For Decision Makers: Rather than a generic “one size fits all” message, Jean will gather extensive feedback to deliver the exact message YOU want your employees to hear. She will applaud what they’re doing right, while she reinforces your vision of how they will have to think and work differently in the future to build and maintain a successful team. With her trademark blend of wit and wisdom, Jean provides the direction and inspiration they need to reach higher, do more, and achieve more.

This session is based on Jean’s award-winning book, 10 Ways to STAND OUT from the Crowd, chosen as Best Business Book of the Year in the categories of leadership, management and career development.
