Session One: Communicating with influence to build credibility and drive high performance

Monday 19th July 2021, 9:30am - 11:30am AEST

Communicating with influence is essential to high performance.

Both of which will contribute to your overall effectiveness and career success.

In this highly informative an engaging session, you will develop greater awareness of how you can communicate with impact to build greater credibility and become a key person of influence in your organisation. Learn how to communicate a message that not only engages and inspires, but also one that mobilises and compels people to take action.

  • Accelerate change and buy-in with simple and practical communication strategies
  • Capture and communicate your thoughts with greater confidence and clarity
  • Extend your reach and influence within your organisation
  • Mobilise people towards action both internally and externally

Once someone becomes aware of their strengths, it impacts their entire life from business, career and family. Through my programs and highly sought out tools, I assist professionals and leaders to understand their own behaviour and communication style. Helping them to build strength in their team and understand how to get the most out of team performance.

I have developed the tools to help professionals like you that make an impact on your results. A combination of skills that include neurolinguistics, timeline therapy, coaching, professional facilitating, strategic thinking and benefits of tools such as DISC profiling, driving force motivators and emotional intelligence quotient ensures you achieve your desired personal outcome.


Session Two: Demonstrating leadership at any point of your career

Friday 23rd July 2021, 9:30am - 11:30am AEST

If your ambition is to progress your career, then the chances are high that you will find yourself in a position of leadership, and even if your ambition is a highly specialised role you will need to demonstrate self-leadership and autonomy. It is therefore imperative that you begin cultivating these skills to boost your confidence and effectiveness when you move into leadership or a senior specialist role, but also to allow you to answer the common interview question of: "Give an example of how you have demonstrated leadership in the past?"

In this interactive and informative session, you will learn how you can demonstrate leadership in your current role so you can begin sharpening your skills and boost your performance at the same time. Anyone can learn and demonstrate leadership, because it starts with you.


Key takeaways from Session Two:

  • Learn how to implement leadership skills in your current role
  • Understand how to demonstrate leadership and communicate its outcomes
  • Self-leadership and how it contributes to high performance
  • How leadership empowerment correlates to managing your career success
  • Cultivating sponsors and advocates by demonstrating leadership

Nicole says that the road to leadership success is in understanding self and others - how we communicate, connect and collaborate with character. She coaches leaders and teams spanning 10 countries to build their level of psychological safety, emotional intelligence, resilience at work, compassionate candour, and how to consciously show up for each other in the most resourceful and accountable ways.

Nicole's favourite quote is one by author, poet and civil rights activist, the late Maya Angelou "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel".


Session Three: Using critical thinking and reasoning to improve decision making

Monday 26th July 2021, 9:30am - 11:30am AEST

Critical thinking is the ability to assess a given situation or strategy and check it for flaws, inconsistencies and assumptions that could cause it to fail, sometimes with disastrous consequences. Spotting these problems in time will not only improve the quality of your work, but it will also signal to those around you that you are well positioned for leadership.

This session will take a deep dive into how you can apply critical thinking in your role to powerful effect. Understand how to employ issue reasoning, check for assumptions, look for contradictions and make recommendations on the best course of action. Also, learn how critical thinking forms the basis for persuasion to help boost your negotiation skills.


Key takeaways from Session Three:

  • Understand critical thinking and how to use it in your role
  • Identify the issue at hand, and the reasoning behind it
  • Perceive the assumptions and potential contradictions behind a given situation or strategy
  • Make recommendations and build the basis of persuasive negotiation

In an ongoing climate of disruption and change, todays workforce is facing an increasing volume of new challenges, difficult decisions and changing circumstances. To successfully navigate through times of uncertainty while performing at your best, you need to be adaptable, proactive, and most importantly resilient.

Whether a C-Suite leader or a new team member, the strongest prison bars holding you back, are in your head. This is what Trish equips you to break free from. At the height of corporate and investment success, Trish was unwittingly caught up in a funds management scandal. Her CEO stole millions of dollars from clients, including Trish. As a result, she fell in breach of the Corporations Act. Her penalty could have been a fine, but in January 2009, with the world still haemorrhaging from the Global Financial Crisis, Trish was sentenced to 8 months in prison. Away from her husband and three little girls and surrounded by some of Queensland's most dangerous criminals, Trish could have despaired. Instead, she learned more while incarcerated than in her 20 years in the business world, about resilience, change and leadership.

Trish began speaking about fraud warning signals in finance and relationships to business groups and has written 2 books on the topic. Then she realised people were most interested in the questions above. In her compelling presentations, Trish shares her story with its fascinating characters (names changed), and the mindset it took to turn her setback around. More importantly, the lessons she shares will enable audiences to respond with resilience to work and life's unexpected changes and challenges. Today Trish is an author, has built an international speaking business and invests again in property and futures. Trish is still married to Justin and her three little girls, Chelsea, and twins, Felicity and Olivia are well adjusted young women.
