I count myself as very lucky to have been able to watch, listen and learn from someone
who is a true master of the art of speaking and communication.”

Words That Change Minds

“Different strokes for different folks.”
What a cliché!
But the truth is that most people
use the same strategy

they use to convince themselves of something,
with other people.

And it often doesn’t work.
Because people ARE different.
And even more different than that,
because they don’t always do the same thing.

 

In this highly engaging, interactive program
Shelle will introduce your people to the
below-conscious Motivation Triggers™ which
drive people’s behavior in different situations.

And show you how to use the
Words That Change Minds.

Format:
40-minute keynote in-person or live online,
half-day workshop, full day workshop.

This program is for:

  • Sales leaders and seasoned sales professionals
  • Marketing professionals
  • Senior leaders and managers
  • Project managers

    And anyone who has to persuade to succeed.

    This program is based on NEW developments in neuroscience, 
    and Shelle’s international best-selling book 
    Words That Change Minds,
    translated into 15 languages.

      Words That Change Customers’ Minds

      Everything you do
      affects the emotional state of your customer.

      Everything you do
      determines what your customer
      believes about your whole organization.

      Your customers don’t want to be told what to do
      and giving them more information only goes so far.

      How you respond to your customer,
      your facial expression, what you do,
      what you say, what you write…
      can make your customer feel happy or sad,
      relieved, or disappointed.

      How you respond to your customer,
      can make your organization look helpful and friendly,
      incompetent, or expert.

      You have an awful lot of power, but …

      The problem is
      most people never consciously learned
      a strategy for using that power;
      for influencing and persuasion.

      In this program you’ll find out:

      • The Motivation Triggers™ of your clients
      • Key questions to ask to uncover these Triggers
      • Influencing Language to use or avoid
      • The Unconscious buying signals, and
      • Signals your customer is unhappy even before they know!

      Format:
      40-minute keynote in-person or live online,
      half-day workshop, full day workshop.

      This program is for:

      • Sales leaders and seasoned sales professionals
      • Marketing professionals
      • Senior leaders and managers
      • Customer Experience Leaders and Teams

      Presenting Ideas to Skeptical People

      Have you ever noticed that the more enthusiastic you are, the more skeptical some people become?

      And it can be so much worse at home with your family!

      The trouble is that when someone is enthusiastic,
      others may perceive that they are …
      being told what to think.

      And so many meetings fail to find great solutions,
      because of one misplaced: “I think you should …”
      and there goes one of the team’s best ideas,
      wiped right off the table because
      people don’t like being “shoulded.”

      (Okay that’s not a real word …. yet)

      And do you ever have to deal with
      “Macho” people?
      Who already know everything,
      Are perfect in every way,
      If there are problems, they are someone else’s fault, or
      They’re more important than anyone else?

      This program is for:

      • People who make high stakes presentations
      • Senior leaders and managers

          In our online poll, 23% of people said
          their biggest communication problem is caused by people’s

          10 Fundamental Differences Between
          Men and Women and Why They Matter

          Genders!
          Hey! Is this a sexist program?
          Well, let me answer that this way.

          Metaphor Alert! 
          Do you use a Mac or a PC?

          Mac & PC

          Most people have a preference for one or the other.
          And often hate the other.
          Isn’t it strange that 2 Operating Systems which are
          supposed to do similar things,
          can arouse such powerful, visceral reactions? 

          But Operating Systems give computers rules
          to function by based on what is important.

          So, I see the differences between men and women
          are like 2 Operating Systems.

          And it’s NOT about which of the genders someone has.
          It’s about the Mental Model that they’re functioning from,
          like an Operating System.

          These Traditional Male and Traditional Female Models
          Are influenced by Culture
          And they can change based on the Topic or Context.

           

          Male and Female Models

          Program Highlights:

          • find out where you are on each continuum and when it shifts
          • how to authentically connect even with people who seem to play games
          • how to be more strategic in your career and not get taken advantage of
          • why starting a brand new activity can be so stressful and how to fix that
          • why some people are easily hurt, while others get over things with ease
          • how having high standards for yourself can hurt your career
          • identify the Male and Female Models in communication and improve rapport and boost your credibility
