- The Secrets to Creating Honest Connections
- Sales and Leadership
- Not your Usual Strategic Planning
Mark A. Wiskup, if you want to tank your career, just follow the example of the “strong and silent” types. Your customers, colleagues, and investors, never want to follow someone who keeps them guessing with poor communication. They want to hear from someone who can connect with excitement, power, and intensity.
Develop your specific communication tools and unique messages in one powerful session. The intense, scenario-driven workshops quickly help make good leaders better.
Sales, employee, and investor role-play with video recording are important to the workshops. During playback and group critique, participants develop specific messages they can use the next day.
Mark believes lots of “strategic” planning sessions wind up being neither!
He leads unusual and dynamic planning sessions focusing on leaders being specific and direct with ideas that will improve organizations.
LOTS OF HUMOR FROM ALL ENCOURAGED, BUT NO VAGUENESS IS ALLOWED!
The result is a shortlist of attainable goals and pointed assignments for everyone. Follow-up is easy. Mark does it all in a one-day, intense meeting.
Mark bars MBA Nano-Speak clichés from the planning sessions, like:
“WE NEED TO: TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
• LEVERAGE OUR TECHNOLOGY ASSETS.
• BECOME A MATRIX-DRIVEN ORGANIZATION.
• PICK THE LOW-HANGING FRUIT
• FISH WHERE THE FISH ARE”
(and the granddaddy of them all)
• “WE NEED TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!”
