Trust + Authenticity = Rockstar Teams and Huge Results!

Working remotely is now our every day, yet many of us have had little, if any, training on how to be a great leader in a virtual environment. This workshop will give you tools and strategies to help with building team culture and engagement when you aren’t physically sitting in the same place.

How do I lead a remote team day today? How do I build trust with my team? How do I monitor their performance? What do I do when someone isn’t engaged? What does privacy and confidentiality mean when having tough conversations over technology? I used to take someone for a coffee to have an informal chat, how do I do that now? What boundaries do me and my team need to ensure we keep well and have a good balance? What is work-life balance when working from home? 

We’ll explore the things you’re really struggling with or challenged by and give you practical strategies and skills to help you and your team move forward.

The only thing Tina loves more than partnering with organisations and individuals to build high-performing, trust-based teams, is working with people who are at a crossroad, feeling unsure about what’s next but committed to working it out and taking action.

She now runs her own business helping people and teams to reconnect with their values and purpose and put in place a plan that means they are living their best lives now, both personally and professionally. Tina’s workshops are deliberately provoking, challenging everyone to think differently, be comfortable with discomfort and embrace the permission you have to make choices that are right for you and your teams.

    Creating A Killer Sales Process

    If you want better sales results, you need to implement a killer sales process.

    Two-thirds of all Business Owners and salespeople don’t follow a sales process…and yet those who use a structured sales process outperform those that don’t.

    A sales process is a set of repeatable steps that take a prospective buyer from the early stage of awareness to a closed sale.

    It is a potential customer’s journey from realizing they have a need for a product or service, to making an actual purchase. And since the sales process is a journey for a prospect, it is a roadmap for a salesperson.

    If you haven’t implemented a clear sales process in your business, this Workshop is for you! Ashleigh Alsadie will map out the proven sales process that she – and her clients – use each and every day to produce results. And this will allow you to bump up your revenue, provide a consistent customer experience, and improve your efficiencies and confidence.

    ‘Creating A Killer Sales Process’ takes you through the following steps:

    • Preparation:

    – Mastering Your Mindset

    Understanding Your Produce and Service Offering

    • Creating An Effective Elevator Pitch
    • Key Questioning
    • Objection Handling
    • Closing

    “As an accomplished speaker and entrepreneur, Ashleigh currently runs two successful sales-focused businesses; The Promo Donna a lead generation firm that creates high quality B2B sales leads and meetings through cold calling and prequalification for hundreds of companies throughout Australia. And AshleighAlsadie.com, her own personal brand and business, where she provides Training and Coaching solutions to assist people in growing their business, and selling themselves and their brand successfully.

    Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

    It’s a pattern of behaviour where we fear being identified, discovered, or exposed as a fraud or phony and we believe we’re are not as competent as others perceive us to be. 

    We believe our success or accomplishments are undeserving. We believe our success is due to luck, as opposed to our true or innate skills and we live in a constant state of perpetual anxiety or fear, of being found out. 

    SO TO AVOID DISCOVERY WE TEND TO OVERCOMPENSATE. 

    • We work harder 
    • We are the first ones in the office & the last ones to leave. 
    • We set benchmarks and standards so high, that at times it’s unrealistic & unachievable. 
    • We are driven & are perfectionist. 

    HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THIS SYNDROME & HOW TO OVERCOME IT: 

    • Increase self awareness
    • Watch negative self talk and learn the art/technique of reframing
    • Simple strategies and steps to deal with Imposter Syndrome 
    • Identify the triggers
    • Courage to have difficult conversations
    • Self Acceptance 
    • Foacis of Gratitude
    • Positive Database
    • Develop Competence
    • Stay Congruent

      Worried about hackers ransonware? Get cyber fit!

      “Is your business cyber fit? Ways to protect your business from hackers and other cyber disasters”

      It can be hard to know how to protect your business from hackers and other cyber incidents. Research shows that 49% of small businesses experienced an incident in the past year, and as COVID-19 has increased our collective reliance on technology, there’s no longer time to delay getting your security up-to-scratch. Don’t worry, you don’t need a tech degree to get started or to know anything about cybersecurity – only your business!

      1.  Identify key cybersecurity areas of concern.
      2. Undertake at least one action to improve the cyber fitness of your business.
      3. Have a plan for where to from here.

      Cynch is a Melbourne based company on a mission to help small business leaders prevent a cybersecurity incident from becoming one of the worst days of their career. We partner with small businesses, continuously profiling their cyber risks and providing the people at the heart of these businesses with everything they need to build and demonstrate cyber fitness in less than 5 minutes at a time, at a price they can afford. The Cynch co-founders met whilst both working at one of Australia’s most iconic institutions, Australia Post. They founded Cynch Security in mid-2017 after recognising how woefully underserved small business leaders were by the cybersecurity industry, initially building the concepts behind the membership at night and on weekends. In October 2018, Cynch was incorporated as a company with the founders dedicating themselves towards bringing the business to the public. The team joined the Cyrise Accelerator program, a joint venture between Dimension Data and Deakin University, and Australia’s only cybersecurity-focused accelerator program, later that same month. Since then, the team has grown as we find more and more people who share a passion for helping small businesses become cyber fit.
