    • Zoom Meeting

    The paradox of potential is that having “high potential” doesn’t mean performing at maximum capability. Oftentimes, professionals may believe theyre doing all they can to perform at the highest level, but inevitably, some of those people will be frustrated, because theyre coming up short on meeting their own personal expectations – and not reaching their full potential in the eyes of others. 

    This interactive presentation will get to the heart of how people can accomplish more and enjoy their work, and how leaders can help their teams succeed. Youll learn new possibilities for goal setting, teamwork, successful human engagement, cross-selling and other skills to help you reach your highest potential.

    During this session, you’ll also:

    • Learn the reasons why people say theyre missing their potential.
    • Learn how to make the switch from “wishing” to “doing.”
    • Gain clarity about plans, purpose and people, and how they relate to your success.
    • Discover the biggest limiting beliefs and how to circumvent them.
    • Learn how to lead your team over the gap between potential and results.

    Speaker: Thom Singer, CSP

    Singer is an executive search consultant and a professional speaker on the topic of human connection and trust. He earned his Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) credential in 2014 and is committed to the business of meetings. 

    He is the author of 12 books and the host of five podcasts: Making Waves at C-Level, The Digital Enterprise Society Podcast, Speakernomics, The Sales Tech Podcast and The Webinar Talk Show.
