Getting Better Buy-in: Engage People; Improve Results
How can you move your people to move with you? Are you a leader in the workplace? Are you an agent of change within your organisation or industry? How can you motivate others to voluntarily give you that ever-elusive and highly valuable commodity in such short supply – their ‘buy-in’. They understand the change. They agree it’s necessary. They’re willing to actively participate in it. Wouldn’t that be great? What conditions do you need to create to make that happen? You’re not Al Pacino in a football movie exalting the team at halftime to give it their all against the odds. Real life buy-in doesn’t come that way. Even Al Pacino speeches are short term and rely on Al Pacino being there. How can you move people to being more likely to change their own behaviour in your absence?
This short presentation, based on the book ‘Getting Better Buy-In’ and its 12 tips to engage people and improve results will cover at least three of those tips in an entertaining and interactive way from author, trainer and sometimes comedian Terry Williams
Terry Williams is an expert, author and motivational speaker on the subject of people engagement. A trainer / facilitator for 25+ years, he’s also been a columnist in ‘Employment Today’ magazine for five years.
His book ‘The Brain-Based Boss’ takes psychological research and breaks it down, to make it interesting and useful for people wanting to improve their performance and engage the people they work with. His book ‘Live Work Love’ takes the same approach with nutrition and exercise research on how to add ten quality years to the middle of your life rather than 10 shonky ones at the end. His book ‘The Guide: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know’ packs hundreds of life skills for young people into a non-preachy and entertaining lifehack manual.
Terry is also a professional stand-up comedian, performing in several NZ International Comedy Festivals and recently featuring on TV3’s ‘The Project’. He is equally at home performing in pubs, clubs, conferences and corporates in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.
