GoToMeeting (log in information will be included in your confirmation) 

DATE: Wednesday, August 19, 2020

TIME: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

SPEAKER:  Jeff Tippett

TOPIC: Unleashing Your Superpower: Why Persuasive Communication Is The Only Force You Will Ever Need

Jeff Tippett advocates that we live or die based on our ability to persuade others.  However, most people don’t understand the necessary components of effective persuasion and often end up just manipulating others or simply failing getting them onboard. With this presentation, Jeff will help unleash the superhero inside. You will learn performance strategies to help succeed like The Avengers. All through persuasive communications.

Think about it: everyone needs to persuade. Whether you’re a CEO responsible to lead an organization and often navigate significant changes, a manager with direct responsibility for the performance of those you lead, a salesperson whose income is directly related to your ability to close the sale, or simply an individual hoping to live life with the company of a significant other—we all have to persuade. But how effective are you? And could you do a better job persuading and create better results for those around you?

Register for this FUEL Roundtable to unleash your superpower!

Who is running your life? You or your stress load?  Are poor decisions or foggy brain limiting your productivity and success? Are you experiencing food cravings, insomnia, irritability, high blood pressure, increased anxiety?  These are all be signs and symptoms of stress overload. Our nation is in a stress crisis. Technology has made it almost impossible for us to unplug, rest, relax, and recharge. According to the American Psychological Association, between 73 and 77% of Americans report experiencing regular psychological and physical signs and symptoms of stress. Unlike our ancestors that shut life down when the sun set, we have access to life 24/7 through technology and we do not give ourselves enough time to rest and recharge.

You have a choice to make ...
