Certified Speaking Professional, Jeff Tobe, challenges you to step outside your comfort zone in positioning yourself more creatively than ever before. He provides the insight you require to give yourself the ‘competitive edge’ for which we all strive in the franchise industry!
To be effective in today’s marketplace, you must be creative and innovative. Actually, you must stay ahead of the marketplace. Everyone is creative when it comes to change, each time they question the ‘norm’ and they force themselves to
look at a challenge from a different perspective. Coloring Outside the Lines helps participants effectively use their innate creativity to their benefit in both their professional and personal lives.
Tobe is not just entertaining—he provides real ‘tools’ to creatively thriving in a changing and challenging marketplace. He believes in the power of creativity to look at what you do from a new perspective and accept that customer service is no longer the bar that distinguishes us from our competitors. We now have to consider our internal and external customers' EXPERIENCES from the minute they make contact with us to the minute they are done! He teaches organizations that to grow, and increase their bottom line, they must first implement strategies that have a fresh approach. Tobe believes in the power of
INFLUENCE and PERSUASION to change an organization's culture in today's topsy turvy economy.
Jeff encourages participants to “stop looking in our rear view mirrors to see how things have been done in the past”. Instead, he urges you to “look through your windshield to see what is coming down the road ahead in YOUR world”.
What makes you different than anyone else out there? Attendees tackle the issues of
VALUE vs. THE PERCEIVED COST of doing business with you. Tobe offers techniques to getting ‘internal’ and ‘external’ clients to buy into your innovative ideas when you do develop them. He addresses the concept of seeing the world through their eyes—from their perspective! Most important, his sessions are upbeat, interactive and FUN!
