Speaker Bio

I love working with leaders, managers, salespeople and individual contributors to provide new skills and accountibility to ensure they are put into action. When people become more effective as a result of our work together, I do a happy dance!

Your success is my goal. I understand the need to excel in your field.

We get the best results — often measurable results — when we partner to create innovative, long-term profesional-development solutions.

I focus on long-lasting results, not flash-in-the pan fluff. I work with you to increase you and your team members’ effectiveness and profitability. I strive to deliver solutions that meet your objectives — on time and on target.

Based upon your specific needs, I develop an implementation plan. I uncover your needs by conducting a thorough needs assessment to make sure I creates the best plan for your situation. I analyze what is keeping your achievers from being more effective, and design appropriate solutions to address the target group’s challenges and areas for development.

It’s a true partnership. Without support from the right parties, any effort is doomed to fail. I believe there are three key components to any successful development program’s success. Read about this in “The Three-Legged Stool for Training Success.”

I’ve authored 28 books, including two bestsellers. Details are in the Book section.

I have been helping improve people’s skills for decades. I’ve worked on many, many projects that have enhanced people’s effectiveness. I’d love to discuss how I could collaborate with you. Please set up a free 30-minute consultation so I can get to know you and your challenges to see if I can help.

 

Leadership and Management:
Engage Rebecca to customize throught-provoking, interactive, practical and fun in-person and virtual keynotes, workshops, retreats, and panels.

  • Leadership Lessons from Silicon Valley: How to Survive and Thrive in Disruptive Times

Learn the leadership secrets companies are using to stay high performing as teams work at home.

Rebecca is available in-person and virtually for a customized interactive session for you:
• 30-90 minute interactive keynote or overview
• full day (can be broken into several sessions)
• multiple-session deep dive master class

We are all experiencing never-before-seen disruption.

How are you leading through this time?

Is your remote team motivated and effective under your leadership?

  • Influencing Others When You’re Not Their Boss

Successful people understand how to get others to provide what they need to complete projects. If you are dependent on people who don’t report to you, it can be challenging. It can be frustrating – or even infuriating.

So how can you influence others who you need to provide you crucial work before you can complete yours? You need to become more savvy to how you currently influence others and what you could do to be even better.

  • Developing Emerging Leaders

“Managing people is a pain!”

You’ve heard this from your colleagues. Perhaps you’ve even said it yourself. You are smart. So why is it hard to manage people? You know you could use some new skills to manage your team better, but you’re not sure exactly how to go about it. If all people would respond to the same management style, it would be so much easier!

When you talk to your staff, do you sometimes feel like you’re talking to a wall? Do you have trouble getting them to do what you want them to do? Do you feel like it’s often quicker and easier to do the job yourself?

This program is applicable for not only new managers or supervisors, but as a often much needed refresher for managers who think they know what to do, but aren’t doing it.

 

Savvy Communication Skills:
Communication is the highest sought-after skill, yet organizations find it difficult to find people with stellar skills. These programs help strengthen this essential skill.

  • Interpersonal Communication Savvy

Have you had colleagues with whom you just couldn’t communicate? Do you know people with whom you “talk the same language” and others who seem to be talking Martian? Would you like to understand how to communicate with your co-workers, managers, and customers so they will be most responsive to your requests and ideas?

  • The Power of Our Words

“Words not only affect us temporarily—they change us.”—David Riesman, The Lonely Crowd

Our words are much more powerful than we give them credit for. We take our words for granted, because we say so many in a day. We don’t take the time to think through “How might my comment leave the receiver? Feeling respected— or diminished? Feeling better about himself—or worse?”

Sales & Customer Service:
Your people are key to gaining and keeping customers. Ensure they have the very best skills possible.

  • Professional Sales Savvy: Practical Secrets for Successful Sales

How should you begin your sales call for greatest effectiveness? How can you be friendly yet get down to business? What is the best way to uncover the concerns of your prospect? How can you then turn these uncovered areas into a sale? What are ways to close for commitment? How do you manage your in-office and on-the-road time to be most effective?

  • Turn Upset Customers into Satisfied, Loyal Customers

How do you make your upset customers happy? What can you do to ensure upset customers will return, will be satisfied, and will refer others to you? It’s the little things that pay off big. We’ll discuss what upset customers want, how to calm them, and how to retain their business.
