Re-Engineer Your Career: How to Thrive in a Minefield

Secrets of successful engineers: Tactics that keep you on top.

Have you ever wondered:

  • Why your peers got a promotion or prime project while you weren’t considered…even though you’re as smart as they are?
  • How much better your work life could be if people just understood the value you could add to the organization?
  • When you are going to get to work on the innovative or important work?
  • Why it felt like you’re walking through a minefield at work and not sure what your next step should be?

It is possible to re-engineer your outcomes and improve your results to reach the next level. You can increase your professional influence and successfully navigate office politics to get more of what you want. However, you have to know the right strategies to connect, the right process to communicate and the right times to act.

Re-Engineer Your Engineers - Set them on Fire!

Wouldn’t you like to re-engineer your employees to:

  • Bring a problem solving approach to all projects?
  • Pitch in and help their peers?
  • Show up in a more positive mood?
  • Stay loyal instead of learning something new and taking it to your competition? Engage everyone around them?

Being a leader who is motivating and can get people engaged isn’t rocket science. It’s more like pyrotecni. If you want to light your employees up it requires some different techniques.

Re-Engineer your Communication Strategies

How to appear really smart in a world of frustrated communicators.

Ever thought you were:

  • Delivering crucial information but the audience was only grasping 10% of what you were saying?
  • Standing in front of a room of critics who thought they could do a better job than you?
  • Talking too much for too little end result/action? (not keeping their attention?)

There are ways to deliver top-shelf, data-driven content in a format that audiences grasp and remember. With the right communication skills, you can reduce your development time by 50%, increase the retention by 80% and convince people to not only agree but take action.

Re-Engineer your Presentations - Smart People Speak Better Naked!

Presentations undressed to reveal what audiences really need to see and hear.

Ever considered you could:

  • Design content so that audiences can grasp it quickly & retain it
  • Learn what works and what fails
  • Become the sought after presenter who engages and entertains

You Must Be Kidding!

Use stories and humor in business presentations.

Ever had the notion that you could:

  • Build rapport and engage your audience
  • Use relevant anecdotes to clarify your points
  • Communicate so well that people wish your talks were longer
  • Get customers to enjoy working with you
