Shift Happens!®  When You Stop The Stupid Stuff®

Shift Happens!® When You Stop The Stupid Stuff®

Don't let what you think you know prevent you from learning what you need to know.

It's time to Stop The Stupid Stuff®. Stop “Shoulding” All Over Yourself If you want a topic that is “unusual” or “different” this is for you. It is not for the timid. We all take steps that may not be productive and create obstacles for our progress. This presentation is the reverse of the perspective of everything you have ever heard. Instead of a “to do” list, Jim suggests you create a “to stop” list. The factors that drive us to sweat the small stuff also impact our decisions to make policies, procedures, and decisions that are not productive. If you want to have the audience engaged while laughing out loud this is for you.You’ll learn the “why” behind the “how.” Knowing how gives you the tools to act, but knowing why gives you the knowledge to anticipate, move quickly, consolidate the genius of your organization – and to blow away the competition. Jim doesn’t believe in peacefully coexisting in a marketplace–he believes in dominating it. Say no to 1,000 things. Create insanely great experiences. Stop The Stupid Stuff is not some cost-cutting methodology. Nor is it a system for the analysis and elimination of the ineffective use of marketing dollars. Rather, Stop Doing the Stupid Stuff means finding out what annoys, frustrates, inconveniences, or confuses your customers – and stopping it. This in your face keynote focuses on results. Jim doesn’t believe in a level playing field. He wants to help your audience make competition as unfairly stacked to their advantage as possible. Stop doing, making, or creating what doesn't work. Decisions are being made that are contrary to both good business sense and building consumer loyalty. Innovation is required to make strides in helping businesses save time in managing their organizations across their efforts to build profitable businesses. How do you see your customers? Help them unleash their inner genius and you’ll win over their hearts and minds. People learn best when the information is relevant and important, and it becomes especially powerful when it relates to a problem they are currently facing. Jim helps your audience connect new ideas more efficiently and identify and eliminate all those obstacles to progress by specifically focusing on enabling new thinking across businesses or product lines. He interacts with the audience by asking questions to free up innovative solutions to find the point of pain to help solve pressing problems. In this interactive presentation, Jim demonstrates how measuring, creating visibility for and celebrating the behaviors you want to see more often makes all the difference to creating your own ‘shifts. His presentation shows how to connect ideas to the people who can improve and act on them, helping many ideas get the visibility and input they needed to thrive. The secret is not to brace yourself for change, but rather to loosen up and go with the flow. At the conclusion of his presentation attendees will leave with a better focus to build a culture where new ideas can emerge, move forward, achieve goals, overcome adversity, and solve pressing problems. Your audience will… 1. Learn how to generate new ideas when you need them. 2. Overcome unproductive thinking habits. 3. Discover that the problem is 'inside the box.' 4. Become more productive. 5.
