LEADERS. Your followers don’t trust you… here are the six reasons why.

According to the respected website, hrnews.co.uk, 95% of leaders believe they are trusted by their followers… however, it seems only 16% of them truly are!

What are leaders doing so wrong?

For a start, they obviously do not realize there’s a problem (the ‘trust perception’ gap described above borders on the delusional)! And it’s very easy to blame followers who are sullen, stubborn, unproductive, and disloyal.

However, this course helps leaders understand how much THEIR behavior contributes to the negativity in their followers… and then helps them turn things around.

Many problems between leaders and followers are SYMPTOMS. Solve the underlying problems and the symptoms disappear. This course addresses those underlying issues.

Using six areas of leadership – each of which begins with the letter ‘C’, behavioral psychologist Andy Edwards identifies EXACTLY what a leader needs to do to create trusting, loyal, hardworking, and productive followers…

Followers who choose to follow YOU as their leader!

We all want to be happy. But what does happiness mean? And how can we bring more happiness into our lives? Today, happiness is on the agenda like never before. Not just individuals, but also business and governments are concerned with what happiness and how it can be increased. In this course, Dr. Will Buckingham explores the rich philosophical traditions of the world, to ask what some of history’s greatest minds have said about happiness. Everyday Philosophy: The Art of Happiness draws on insights from philosophers both East and West to think more deeply about what happiness is and why it matters. This is a practical course, so you won’t just be thinking about happiness. You will also be engaging in practical exercises that put the ideas to work, and that help you explore the many ways in which philosophers have suggested we change our lives, our minds and our relationships, to bring about greater happiness.

Presentations have a bad reputation. People don’t like giving them and audiences don’t like sitting through them, and many (if not most) presentations are dull and ineffective. But this makes no sense if you think about the many strengths of a presentation. They are live, personal, emotional, physical, anecdotal, three-dimensional, visual, interactive communications that allow you to really engage with your audience. The good news is you don’t have to master news skills to do this, just harness the conversational skills you have been fine-tuning since you were born. Through theory, examples, stories, conversations, videos and sample presentations, the course will tell you how to create a presentation you can deliver as fluently as you would converse with a friend.

These days, entrepreneurs have more ways than ever to sell their products or services, including directly to consumers online. The trick is to identify which selling strategies will yield the right mix of profits and market share.

While using direct sales methods enables you to pocket more of the margin and establish direct connections with your customers, indirect sales methods can spread your products far and wide quickly and help your brand gain a foothold fast.

We also cover how to more effectively sell in this multichannel world we live in. You must sell where your customer expects to find you, otherwise they will go somewhere else.

How do your customers see you? Market positioning is at the intersection of your offering and your customers – in the form of both the promise you make in the form of messaging, and customer perceptions of how well you deliver on that promise. Your goal is to uniquely claim a niche in the marketplace that encapsulates the value you deliver to your audience. To help define your claim, this course provides a six-step framework for honing your positioning.

You’ll examine the facets of your business to find the elements you deliver that resonate most with customers, use starter wording templates as a jumping-off point, and validate your work with seven key criteria. Multiple examples from product, technology, and service companies are discussed throughout – including how poor repositioning of one of American’s best-known brands damaged the company.

This audio course is designed for anyone who is dealing with depression or anyone who has a loved one who is dealing with depression. Depression is not just “in your head,” and healing is not simply a matter of “snapping out of it.” In this course, you’ll gain understanding about some of the normal processes of the brain and the neurological and chemical effects of depression which explain why it diminishes happiness, hope, and motivation. You’ll learn what is needed to overcome depression, and things we can do to help facilitate healing. Nothing in this course can be considered “medical advice,” since only a licensed healthcare professional is authorized to do that; however these lessons come from the unique perspective of someone who has been there and back again. Instructor Linda Bjork personally experienced depression for about five years, but experienced a joyful recovery using the techniques shared in this course.

I believe that most of us will walk through this life and never fully know who we are, what our purpose is, and what we are capable of achieving. And to me, that’s a tragedy. My biggest fear is unfulfilled potential. To get to the end of my life only to realize what I could’ve become. I believe the catalyst for this is that we never truly find ourselves. How much time have you invested in fully getting to know all the parts of yourself? We are not as simple as we think. We are very complex, multifaceted and multidimensional beings. I believe that it is our moral responsibility to discover who we are, find our purpose, and bring it forth to share with others so they can do the same.

The overall goal of this course is to be a simple guide for reuniting you to the truest, most authentic version of you. My hope is that you can take the following lessons and apply them to your present reality and allow them to plant new seeds that will take root and help to reconnect you to the highest version of yourself. That version of you who has been waiting to be brought forth. The version of you that truly knows what their aim and purpose is in this life. The version of you who knows the path to take in order to reach your highest potential future. Allow yourself to become emotionally involved in the following principles and truths and permit yourself to rediscover your power.

You’ll access tools for brainstorming how your offering satisfies emotional desires, alleviates fears or stresses, and addresses immediate practical needs, including prompts specifically for B2B companies.
