Commit To Win: How To Harness the 4 Elements of Commitment to Reach Your Goals

Anyone who’s ever given up on a New Year’s resolution knows: Willpower eventually runs out. Whether the goal is personal or professional, the factor that really determines success is an individual’s commitment level. Showing how to harness the evidence-based elements of commitment, this talk gives everyone the tools to stop wishing and start achieving.

Commit To Win: Boosting Your Happiness and Focus at Work

Most people can remember being highly focused on tasks as a child, like building model airplanes, learning to bake, or realistically portraying a favorite superhero. As people move into adulthood, however, some of that focus and engagement may be lost. In this talk, audiences learn how to increase both their commitment and happiness at work.

The Commitment Equation: Sticking With Your Startup

Startups face many demands that other teams do not. In this talk, the practical knowledge of what builds commitment is applied to the critical goal of sticking with a startup team or entrepreneurial venture.

Workshop Topics

Relational Leadership

Most contemporary leadership thinkers agree that all leadership is relational, and nothing meaningful happens except with and through people. Placing the relational aspect of leadership at the forefront, the purpose of this workshop is to develop the perspectives and practices that form the foundation of working well with and through others.

The Three Laws of Conflict Management

Whether you are a new employee, long-time worker, supervisor, or upper management, there are paths you can take to prevent many conflicts and to manage difficulties when they do arise. The Three Laws help you develop a crucial side of leadership you may never have considered—the ability to manage conflict, keep drama to a minimum, and move forward positively and productively.

Developing and Delivering Great Presentations

It’s among our top fears – public speaking. So how do you develop and present a speech, report, or short talk that engages and informs the audience while still keeping your wits about you? In this course you will learn the latest perspectives and strategies for presenting with confidence, connecting with your audience and most importantly, making an impact.

Train the Trainer

Everyone has attended a training event where time dragged on and too little learning took place. In this workshop, participants will learn how to engage participants so that authentic development can occur. From content about what motivates adult learners, to time-tested techniques for dynamic trainings, to live practice and feedback, this workshop will increase the confidence and skill of training professionals at every level.

Testimonials

Thank you for the training today on redirective feedback. Here’s an example of how your training is already making a difference. After your training I met with a Service-Learning Community Partner. She talked about a few communication challenges she is having with students. I offered her a copy of the "60 second opening statement" and she started thinking out loud about how she could use it right away. Hooray! Thank you again. I always enjoy and learn from your presentation style and methods. You rock!

Kara Brascia, Director, Service Learning Program, Boise State University

Heidi's presentation at yesterday's American Society for Training and Development meetings was engaging, informative, dynamic and insightful! Well done! I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation.

I just met with another friend who attended one of your recent presentations and we both agreed we are signing up to hear YOU because you have more details of interest to our job functions, plus learning from you is entertainment. Sort of like the sugar with the medicine. I hope you know how you bless your audience.

Anita Castillo, Administrative Assistant - Student Services & Academic Advising (SSAA), College of Health Sciences, Boise State University

I just wanted to take a few minutes to send you a thank you note for the address you gave. The three points were simple yet useful to create some quick actionable steps to be "All In." For me, it was timely and relevant from both a professional and personal perspective. It is gratifying to know that Boise State is offering such quality in the professor ranks with folks like yourself.

Dwight Berreth, Assistant Director of Financial Aid

Dr. Heidi Reeder did an outstanding job as the keynote speaker at a recent employee recognition luncheon! I met with Heidi for an initial consultation about two months prior to our event, and one additional brief meeting just prior to the event. Based on those exchanges, I left both meetings with full confidence in Heidi’s understanding of what I was looking for, as well as her capabilities in delivering a good final product to our team. And Heidi delivered in SPADES! Her presentation to the staff was professional, informative, interesting, empowering, and spot-on to the topics we had discussed. Heidi’s delivery was polished, engaging, real, relatable and humorous. I received many compliments about Heidi’s presentation from the employees. Given the positive experience with Heidi, I am currently making arrangements with her for another presentation because I know she will deliver a high quality presentation. Thanks Heidi and looking forward to working with you again soon!
