The Infinite Game
How Do You Stay Ahead and Win in a Game That Has No End?
So many organizations and individuals are obsessed with winning. But how do you win a game that never really ends? There is no such thing, for example, as “winning” business or life.
Games like football and chess are finite, with firm rules and clear endpoints. But business is infinite – there’s ultimately no such thing as “winning” because there’s always a new set of challenges. Those who thrive in the long run – the ones who frustrate and run circles around their competition and contribute more to society and their bottom line – are the ones who play by infinite rules. They do things that enable them to out-maneuver, out-innovate, and outlast their competitors.
Simon Sinek’s Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last have helped millions see the hidden rules that govern our behavior. The Infinite Game challenges us to rethink our perspective with a deceptively simple question: How do you stay ahead in a game with no end?
Trusted Relationships, Remarkable Results
How the Best Team Pulls Together.
Today’s workplaces can be full of cynicism and self-interest. With change and disruption as constants, it’s easy to forget that trust-based relationships are the foundation for achievement. Through stories, research and basic science, Heath explains the three major shifts that will help build a culture of trust and create ideal conditions for teams to be successful. When your people work together to confront external threats, they’ll get more done, with less stress, and actually have fun doing it. Heath reveals the secrets to rallying your team around a clearly-articulated purpose – because when you’re clear about who you serve, where you’re going, and how you’re getting there, the natural response is to trust, collaborate and bring bold visions to reality
Start With Why
Foster a Purpose-Driven Culture and Inspire Everyone to Action
Imagine a world in which your people wake up inspired to go to work, feel valued while they’re there, and return home fulfilled by the work they do. To bring that world into reality, you must start with a simple question: WHY? In today’s most successful organizations, leaders tap into the power of purpose by articulating a vision of the future and creating trust-based environments in which people naturally work together to achieve extraordinary things. Through stories, studies and science, Heath shows audiences that the WHY is at the centre of it all – and the key to success and fulfillment on both an individual and organizational level.
** Heath is an official IGNITER with Simon Sinek’s Start With Why team, living his own WHY by delivering talks and leading workshops based on Simon’s best-selling books.
Interact With Influence
The Skills, Tips & Behaviours that Build Trust, Gain Commitment and Inspire Change
Our ability to influence wisely and effectively – to get people to listen, to trust, and act on what we say – is arguably the most important skill for reaching our greatest potential. Though we face these challenging interpersonal situations every single day, rarely do we have the opportunity to sharpen these skills and see the difference between what works and what doesn’t. In this fast-paced presentation, Heath illustrates the most effective, scientifically-proven ways to influence and impact the people around you and your team. Like all of Heath’s talks, Interact with Influence is evidence-based and highly customized for each audience.
The Trusted Advisor
How to Think, Act and Communicate like the world’s most Trusted Advisors
When people think, act, and communicate as a Trusted Advisor, they dramatically increase productivity, improve business results, and reduce stress. Whether working internally as a business partner, or externally with customers, clients and stakeholders, the impact is the same: greater capacity, more satisfaction, and less friction. Simply put, high-trust individuals and teams outperform low-trust organizations in every key business metric: profitability, revenue growth, employee engagement, customer service, retention, and more. In this program, Heath teaches the key skills and mindset that will usher you and your team into the vital (and valuable) role of Trusted Advisors.
