Gavin Ingham – Be More, Do More, Have More

Gavin Ingham - Be More, Do Mo

My guest this week has been obsessed with high performance for over twenty years.  He’s been looking for answers to questions such as: What differentiates high performers from good performers? What helps one person to achieve great results when another is merely average? What skyrockets one team to be more motivated, more productive and make more sales when another wallows in mediocrity?

The answers to these questions inspired him to create his #IAM10 methodology for high performance and today I’m going to be asking him to share those answers and some insights and strategies that we can all use to be more, do more and have more. My guest is IAM10 creator Gavin Ingham.

Bio

What differentiates high performers from good performers? For the last two decades, this is the question that has driven Gavin Ingham to develop the #IAM10 high performance methodology for helping leaders to build high performing teams that fulfil their potential, improve motivation and focus, increase productivity, embrace change and grow sales.

The world is changing faster than ever. There is more competition than ever before. The global economy, AI, automation all mean that you and your people need to work with conviction, embrace change, maximise productivity and add more value to every situation. Good enough is not good enough anymore. You need to be the best. You need to be a 10.

Why can one person have it all and achieve nothing and another can achieve extraordinary results despite the most severe of challenges?

The surprising truth of #IAM10 is that there is little correlation between high performance and education, background, intelligence or career. Instead, high performance is directly related to persistent habits. This means that anyone can be a high performer and it can be taught.

High performers have three core traits…

  1. Conviction. They believe in themselves, the value that they add and their journey irrespective of external people, events and circumstances.
  2. Clarity. They are clear about who they want to be, what they need to do to succeed and what not to do.
  3. Consistency. They do what they need to do irrespective of challenges and setbacks. As it turns out, chronic inconsistency is the enemy of high performance.

Gavin has worked with CEOs, leadership teams and high performers in companies like Jaguar, UBS, Microsoft and Spotify delivering talks, masterclasses and programmes. All of his sessions are highly interactive, engaging, humorous and full of proven strategies for high performance that can be used to achieve more right away.

Whilst inspirational and motivational, Gavin is a business speaker and tailors his messages to you, your audience and your business so that you get maximum engagement, measurable change and positive results.

Gavin has given over 2,000 paid talks to over 250,000 delegates, spoken all over the world and has appeared on US TV networks ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox on the Brian Tracy TV Show. He have judged the British Excellence in Sales and Marketing Awards (BESMA), keynoted three times at the prestigious National Sales Conference, is a TEDx speaker and a Fellow of the ISM.

Richard Watson – The Future and how to get there

Richard Watson - The Future and how to get there

My guest this week is a futurist and scenario thinker who featured the pandemic in 4 out of his 5 books.  He is probably best known as a maker of highly provocative maps and data visualisations intended to stimulate deep debate. The Financial Times called these maps “Brave”, while Business Insider said they might “Blow your mind”.

He has worked with the Tech Foresight Practice at Imperial College London and is currently their Futurist-in-Residence at the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication.

His next book, You are Not Busy, will examine our preoccupation with work and what might happen to our minds if we deleted some easy conveniences or occupied ourselves with a few things that were desirably difficult.

Please welcome best-selling author, futurist and scenario thinker Richard Watson.

Susan Armstrong – The Emotional Pandemic Infecting Organisations

Susan ArmstrongMy guest today is an International Talent Development expert, Speaker and Author, who specialises in Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace.

Her programmes have won the ATD Gold Award for Excellence in Training, and, she has a Leadership programme listed as one of the top 5 Leadership Programmes in the world by HR.com.  Currently she is a sought-after expert in leading and working in this new COVID reality.

But she has a shocking past, which I am going to ask her to share with us today.  It’s a story that could be the plot to a Tarantino movie, one that she has only just recently begun sharing with the world.

Please welcome author and entrepreneur Susan Armstrong.

Bio

Inspiring, entertaining and educating, Susan Armstrong has been changing people’s lives for nearly 30 years, starting with her own. In the last 20+ years Susan has spoken in over 40 countries, developed and trained over 500 workshops and helped over 150,000 people around the world transform their personal and professional lives. Her clients include some of the largest companies in the world. She has designed global programs for such clients as Johnson & Johnson, Philip Morris International, GlaxoSmithKline, Philips, SABIC, and many other public and private sector clients. And, she has a secret…

Homelessness, addiction, and abuse at the hands of a notorious motorcycle gang are not what you would expect to find behind a successful Talent Development Expert, but they are the circumstances that taught Susan that we are responsible for creating our own reality.  While your story might be different, the way you feel and the way you behave – all in the name of what you believe to be the truth – are the same.

In recovering from her self-destructive lifestyle, Susan quickly realised that what she had was a “thinking” problem. Everything she believed to be true about herself and how to get along in the world was wrong and she needed to re-wire her thought processes. She embarked on a mission to learn everything she could about how to effectively interact with the world around her. What she didn’t know is that she was developing her emotional intelligence – the secret weapon for success.

It is emotional intelligence that took Susan from the streets to the boardroom, and it is the “red-thread” running through all of Susan’s speaking and training: how to become an effective leader; how to increase your success in sales; how to navigate through change; how to develop resilience, or how to deliver a powerful presentation. Susan is teaching the basics of emotional intelligence. It is what has made her such an in-demand speaker and trainer. Not only are attendees learning the business skills they need, they are also learning some extremely important life skills at the same time.

Susan Armstrong inspires people to look past their own self-limiting beliefs and take action to achieve a level of professional success previously unattainable. Whether you are a leader, individual contributor, or entrepreneur, Susan is a powerful example of what is truly possible if we just set ourselves free of our own faulty thinking and beliefs.

Tom Kenyon-Slaney - The Global Speaker Industry in a Pandemic

A rare opportunity to hear from the man behind the speaker bureau that the International New York Times called the only global Speaker Bureau.

Tom Kenyon-Slaney co-founded London Speaker Bureau 25 years ago and has grown it from one office in London to 25 offices around the world.  Now with a turnover of almost US$40 million it is by far the largest speaker bureau outside of North America and by far the most globally networked.

Today he joins me to talk about what he is hearing from his offices around the world as we work though the pandemic and what he thinks about the future for speakers and speaker bureaus and how they can support businesses and leaders.

Bio

Tom Kenyon-Slaney founded London Speaker Bureau in 1994, an international agency providing keynote speakers and boardroom advisors for corporations and governments around the world.
