How to Talk Your Way to a Stronger Team

In today’s technology-driven, fast-paced work environments, it’s so easy to forget the human element that is the key to building cohesive teams. We’ve become so busy trying to get work done that we sometimes neglect to invest time in fostering healthy work environments that help each team member deliver their best work. Our ability and willingness to listen is limited, we take a “one size fits all” approach to communication, and we rarely think about how to build a higher degree of trust with others using our words.

In this program, you will explore the significant impact your personality can have on how you communicate with others. Learn what it means to be an “aggressive listener,” hearing both the content AND intent of the words spoken by others. You’ll also discover the negative power of “trigger words” and how to reduce them in conversations with team members. Expect to gain fresh insights on how to motivate individuals across all generations with your words. Most importantly, you will leave better equipped to express your own thoughts with greater clarity, confidence, and competence to those around you.

Pulling Weeds and Change

Pulling weeds… that’s the attitude most people have toward individual and organizational change. It’s not something they enjoy, and it is seen as a necessary evil instead of an opportunity to grow. What if there were a ...

Testimonials

“Jones was excellent! I was thoroughly impressed. His presentation was excellent, as I expected, but what set him apart was that he’d taken time to learn a little about what the audience does and he expertly wove that into the presentation and kept bringing it back to what they did. It really made the audience engage with him. I was very impressed. Overall feedback from attendees on site has been very positive. So thank you! He’s a great speaker and I hope to invite him back in the future.”

Rebecca Hendren

Event Planner, Simplify Compliance

“Jones was indeed well received. And I even commented to someone that when I first met him, you would have thought we’d known each other for a long time! It was great and he made you feel very at ease! He was great at keeping the audience engaged and they came away from his seminar commenting on, “sure gave me a lot to think about” and “maybe I need to change a few things like Jones said and my life won’t be so hectic”!”

Jackie Brown

Meetings Coordinator, BPAA

“Jones Loflin understands us. From our ever-expanding schedules and inability to say “no” to any person or project, to the rewarding experience of serving our communities, Jones just gets it. He tailors his seminars on work/life balance so intuitively for the audience that each attendee walks away feeling as if they’d had a personal coaching session, even in a group of 300. His infectious positivity and high-energy presentation make him a natural choice for your event.”

Wendy Wilson Wilber

Faculty Member, University of Florida IFAS Extension

“I hope you’ve gotten some rest from your whirlwind visit with us. You were just fantastic, my friend! I love your energy level. Your running with you’re your daughter must really be working because you never lost your breath in your presentation even after running up and down the steps in the auditorium! You created a lot of excitement at both presentations and I’ve heard many, many positive comments from my co-workers. I just wish we had your opening from the WHQ event where you talked about being a package – that was fabulous!”

Peggy Hall

Global Leadership Institute, Federal Express

“Thanks for coming out to Tractor Supply to facilitate Juggling Elephants yesterday. Several participants engaged with me after the program was complete to share how much they enjoyed the presentation. One person even mentioned that you were the “best presenter they had seen in their life” in their long career of working! Even more impressive, several managers provided comments during their graduation speeches to the executive team on how Juggling Elephants has helped them realize the importance of having balance in their life. I look forward to working with you again!”

Albert Dennis

“You did an absolutely terrific job on your presentation. We heard so many great comments and there was such great turnout – your session was definitely a hit with our members! We appreciate how easy you were to work with, as well as how you just went with the flow of the event. That is always so helpful from the planning side. I heard that there were many, many books sold, so that alone is a great testament to your session and info. The content was perfect and so helpful. Wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend you to any of my planner friends and colleagues. You were a delight to work with!!”
