CLEAR WORDS – STRONG TEAMS: Clarity makes a team successful

CLEAR WORDS – STRONG TEAMS: Clarity makes a team successful

Phrases like "that was an awesome sales pitch!" or "working with you has been really great!" are, of course, very nice to hear. But do we find in them the useful feedback we need?  "Sure we do!" says the conventional wisdom. "Not true!" says Global Topspeaker Stefanie Voss.

Being a communications expert and a circumnavigator, she helps clear the decks on this subject. In this lecture Stefanie Voss tackles many preconceived notions around the communication culture of successful teams. Harmony is certainly a good thing, but teams need more to move further. Openness and clarity, along with the conscious (and often difficult) exchange of different points of view, are bedrock of real success stories, and those can only be achieved with clear, to-the-point language at all levels.

Global Topspeaker and business expert Stefanie Voss vividly and clearly explains how one promotes the lively exchange of views and constructively manages conflicts, drawing not only on experience from her professional life, but also on the teamwork needed in a transoceanic sailing team. The audience will be actively involved in the presentation and can check their own behavior patterns directly, with multiple opportunities for immediate improvement.

A lively, instructive, entertaining, and above all inspiring lecture on successful conflict management and the power of clear communication, geared toward all occupational groups. The numerous tips and easily implemented suggestions will have an immediate positive impact on one’s own communication behavior.

Contents of the presentation:

  • A strong team lives for and loves open debate
  • He who speaks hears little that’s new
  • What conflicts are good for, and why plain speech need not be hurtful
  • Why compliments have nothing to do with feedback

SAILING TO SUCCESS: Strategies of a circumnavigator

What is the secret of success? Passionate sailing enthusiast Stefanie Voss has a simple, pragmatic answer to this exciting question: “Successful people are able to mindfully lead themselves. And that is also exactly what makes a good sailor.“ If one wants to cross the open seas, they must have a clear focus on their goals, confidence in their own capabilities, and a willingness to deal creatively with adverse circumstances.

LIVING DIVERSITY: succeeding outside your comfort zone

Global Topspeaker and sailing circumnavigator Stefanie Voss knows from personal experience: With an ambitious voyage ahead, a wise skipper would never form a crew from people of the same background, education, and skill sets. For it is precisely the diversity of talents on board that determines a trip’s success or failure.

Pirate strategy: What organzisations can learn from buccaneers

Since the beginning of seafaring, pirates have always ruled the seas as well. Their stories in books and on the big screens - even today - still have the power to fascinate us. But the brutal villains from so long ago also had to be smart strategists. In addition, they often used to be remarkably loyal comrades. Characteristics that - in the opinion of business expert and circumnavigator Stefanie Voss - play a major role in our working environment still today.

agility in business is what makes teams strong: today and in the future

In competition, agile companies have the tremendous advantage that they can adapt more flexibly to changes in today’s fast-moving world. That way, they are able to position innovations with a head start in the market. For Global Topspeaker Stefanie Voss, however, agility doesn’t start with faster change processes or process optimisations but in the minds of all employees and executives. In her trendsetting presentation, Voss therefore provides her audience with the proper mindset and the practical methods to think with greater agility from now on and to act faster, more flexibly and more clearly.
