The Four KPI’s That Create Elite Teams And Cultures

The qualities that create an elite team and culture are often overcomplicated. The truth is there are just four qualities that make an elite community and they cost nothing to implement, take next to no effort to do, they get immediate impact and they will go viral through any organisation. Yes… they go viral.

Once again you will be disarmed by the effectiveness, elegance and simplicity of Dobbo’s approach. His four KPI’s are so simple and so addictive that once people recognise how much better it makes their life, they can’t stop doing them.
This presentation outlines those four KPI’s and how they thread them into your existing business systems and culture.

Get Your People Thinking Like A Start Up

People fit into two categories, they are either great with implementing Method or they are great at Starting something. For centuries we hired and designed business around method people and their job was to implement the established systems in the business.

Then practically overnight business and the world changed. Those same method employees are now asked to be starters. To innovate, problem solve, go to the customer, break down silos, collaborate, think big and embrace change. This is not in their nature and they will not be able to think like a starter until you teach them how to be as agile as your business needs them.

Finding A Way To The Seemingly Impossible

Motivation in people increases and decreases relative to how clearly they can see ‘how’ they can make their goal happen. To increase drive and the likelihood of success the primary skill required is the ability to critically assess and invent strategy. We need to understand how things work so we can recognise which levers to pull to get a result. When people can ‘see a way’ they get motivated.

Hitting sales targets, implementing new business plans, meeting deadlines, winning pitches and brilliant leadership are all the result of strategy above drive.

In this presentation Dobbo will walk you through how a world-class strategist navigates obstacle to achieve an outcome. You will be rejuvenated by the endless library of strategies and how applicable they are to your present goals.

7 Conversations For Liberating Dormant Talent

After 25 years advising elite performers around the world, Dobbo has found that there are just seven conversations that ever need to happen to unlock what someone is truly capable of.

No confrontation required, no tough love, no calling out someone’s attitude and no clichés. Instead you will fall in love with the genius, elegance and simplicity of these conversations; quickly discovering that you too can now unlock the ability you see in your people, with less effort and more impact.

This is a master class in liberating the talent in yourself, your team and the people you love.

Bridging Silos to Meet More of Your Customer’s Needs

Organisations that have multiple divisions, all operating as business silos, miss huge opportunities to both serve the customer and grow the business as a whole.

Delivering more services to established customers is one of the most commercially viable business strategies as it has the most immediate return on investment while creating an even happier customer.
In this presentation Mark offers tools for both leaders and/or frontline service providers, for increasing the synergy between silos and personal performance.
Including but not limited to:
- Recognising your specific role in bridging silos
- Dissolving the tension
- Creating and leading a ‘team’ relationship between divisions
- Working together even with differing KPI’s
- Moving mindset from ‘admin burden’ to ‘customer service’
- Successful hand over and introductions (even to a bad team)
- Managing time so there is space for service & synergy

You will find Mark’s strategies highly practical, quickly adopted by the audience and alive in the organisation for years to come. Best of all, they can be acted on imeadiatly without major systems overhaul.
