Influencing Your Team to Drive Profits

with Brian Parsley

Join over 120 business leaders at The Pavillions of Harrogate to hear from international speaker Brian Parsley Brian is a certified professional Behaviour Analyst and Human Capital Strategist who guides organisations to increase management effectiveness, delight customers and build profitability.

Morning Keynote

As execs it’s important never to forget leadership is about influence. The question is, how effective are we influencing others? Everyone wants to believe they can ‘convince’ people the best way is their way, but that’s manipulation. Imagine if you could guide others to the decisions that benefit everyone. We shall focus on the three most impactful influences we’re faced with on a daily basis.

What you will discover:
• New ways of framing conversations with customers and employees.

• Understanding the impact on your business of positive, negative and unintentional influence.

• How to develop better personal connections that lead to better results.

• Confidence that you have a new perspective on building a better culture in your business

Brian will show attendees how to build a winning culture within their company to get the same level of commitment from the team as the day they were hired.

Looking in particular at:

• How to fire someone and have them thank you.

• The three keys to getting the best out of your people.

• Why traditional interviews don’t work and how to ask ‘Miss America’ questions.

• Proven principles from Fortune 500 leaders to hire, inspire and have loyal employees.

• Ways to increase employee performance and reduce organisational churn.

• How being respected is more important than being liked in your company.

• How to turn malicious obedience into voluntary compliance.
