“If you don’t learn to control your emotions, your emotions will control you!” Studies reveal that 85% of people suffer from a lack of self-confidence, while 70% admit to experiencing imposter syndrome at work. This draining negative self-talk leads to procrastination, creates unnecessary stress, and wastes valuable time and energy. Negative self-talk also creates resistance to change as employees struggle with uncertainty and convince themselves they can’t learn new skills or adapt to the changes facing them. A lack of self-confidence can lead to toxic work environments, demotivated employees, and unnecessarily high employee turnover rates. A lack of focus leads to excessive “squirrel brain” at work – contributing to even more stress and creating an enormous drain on productivity. Conversely, when employees learn to be more confident and focus their thoughts, they will be happier, more innovative, and far more productive. They’ll communicate with greater confidence and clarity. They’ll experience far less stress. And they’ll be more likely to step up as a leader on their teams. And when your employees gain more confidence and focus, the impact will be felt throughout your team, and ultimately, your entire organization! Nathalie’s THINK Yourself® CONFIDENT keynote is engaging, fun and informative. Whether it’s frontline employees facing disruption, salespeople struggling with how to handle rejection, or first-time supervisors needing a dose of confidence to step into their new roles, the proven system Nathalie shared in her 8 International No.1 Bestsellers will help your team perform at their fullest potential!

People don’t leave their job. they leave the boss they don’t respect or the co-worker that drives them nuts! Demotivated employees and high employee turnover rates are extremely costly. Presenteeism, where employees show up at work, but not to work, is also a huge, often overlooked, financial drain. Strong interpersonal relationships are critical for a healthier, happier, and ultimately more profitable business. Equipping your team with tools to recognize their own personality style and to learn what motivates them will create a more positive workplace environment that focuses on their strengths. Using the STYLE-L.I.S.T. Personal Assessment Tool, this workshop helps participants to learn more about themselves – leading to better communication skills and stronger interpersonal relationship. Teaching your employees how to recognize their own style along with the style of their co-workers, subordinates, and superiors, will give them a better understanding of the differences between personality types. Giving them tools to communicate effectively with each style will ensure everyone feels heard and appreciated, creating an environment of respect, camaraderie, and collaboration. Making sure they can communicate effectively within and outside the organization will foster an environment that reduces your employee turnover and absenteeism rates and allow for a workplace where people truly enjoy spending five days a week.

Whether they belong to the marketing, accounting, production or sales department, everyone in your organization is involved in selling. You can have the best product or offer the most outstanding services, but if you don’t know how to sell them, your business is not going to survive. Have you ever heard: “Selling is difficult and daunting.” Or: “Selling makes me feel pushy.” Certain sales techniques work with certain people but not with everyone. This workshop teaches your team how to use the STYLE-L.I.S.T. personal assessment tool to identify the personality style of their prospective buyer. Knowing the buyer’s style helps them adapt their communication and sales strategy to match their style, create a better rapport, understand their needs better, and understand what drives them to purchase. It can ultimately help you position your entire company as the solution to their specific problem. Discover how adding four dimensions to the way your employees sell your products and services will generate a higher sales conversion rate, skyrocket your customer’s satisfaction scores, and dramatically increase your client retention and referral rates. They will leave the workshop with easy-to-apply skills, a revamped understanding of their relationship with money, and a new mindset about the way they see themselves as Sales Pros.

“To lead is not to tell people what to do. To lead is to teach others how to find out for themselves.” To motivate and inspire action from your employees, you need to understand where the switches are to the “lightbulbs” that will inspire and ignite your employees. Learning what drives team members and how to communicate effectively with each personality style on their team will help your leaders lead more effectively, with far greater confidence. Encouraging leaders to adopt a “coaching mindset” will create a more collaborative and productive team environment. Learning to use inclusive language will equip your leaders with tools to help them manage conflicts, have difficult conversations, build trust, and break down “silos” at work where employees are working in their own fiefdoms! In a constantly changing reality, learning strategies for dealing with powerful emotions (such as fear of the unknown) will empower leaders to instill confidence in their team so employees become more receptive to change.

Employees who eat healthy are 25% more likely to perform better at work A growing body of literature underscores the connection between health and productivity. According to research, employees who eat healthy are 25% more likely to perform better at work, while employees who exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes are 15% more likely to perform better at work. Healthy employees have greater physical energy and mental acuity, take fewer sick days, and are more likely to remain longer in their jobs. Healthy employees recover from illnesses sooner and are at a lower risk of succumbing to a long-term debilitating illness. Study after study makes it clear: Investing in your employees’ health and fitness saves companies enormous amounts of unnecessary costs making it well worth the financial investment.
