This live on-line workshop is about taking a deep dive into your existing content and finding greater significance within it. Companion to this, we’ll develop new content freshening your presentations to be more interesting and profitable. It’s about discovering fresh insights and expressing them in novel ways that listeners have never experienced before.
“Thought Leadership: A new and valuable idea communicated in an interesting and profitable way.”
Thought leadership is what you may be seeking. Chances are you have mature content and confident delivery but haven’t brought anything new that has seismic significance to your presentations for a while. You’re stuck in the role of Thought Repeater. Telling yourself to “think outside the box” won’t get you “outside your box.” Without a thought process, unguided thinking leads to wheel spinning and wasted time. Instead of “thinking out of the box” what you need is to “process out of the box.” When you have a thought process that ignites your imagination, you’ll break through your creative boundaries and discover new content and profitable ideas. This workshop provides you the thought process, path, and tools to evolve from Thought Repeater to Thought Leader.”
“Be a voice, not an echo.”
