Presentations skills for leaders:
Influence is the cornerstone of leadership. On this episode we are introduced to a world-class executive coach from Toronto, Dana Janzen, who our regular listeners can look forward to hearing more from in future episodes.
Dana Janzen is a seasoned leadership performance facilitator, certified executive coach and keynote speaker on the topic of leadership and influence. Her mission is to cure executives of accidental leadership blindness - the condition when leaders are oblivious to their derailing behaviours, blind spots and missed opportunities where they continue to operate in a false cozy culture where they keep doing what they have always done.
On this episode, Dana walks us through a step by step process that she uses to guide organizational leaders to improve their ability to influence others. Dana describes the process of mapping out who to influence, becoming more proactive and intentional about when to approach them and also how to interact with them in an authentic, respectful manner.
If you are someone who would like to improve your ability to influence others more effectively, listen closely as Dana Janzen shares invaluable tips, perspectives and best practices on this compelling episode.

What if you could know everything without knowing anything?
On today’s episode, Dr. Jacob Kashiwagi explains how this mental paradigm shift can powerfully improve your life and your career.
Dr. Jacob Kashiwagi is a thought leader in leadership development, procurement, project management, and supply chain management. He co-developed the Best Value Approach through a 26-year global research effort. This groundbreaking model is the most licensed technology at Arizona State University in the past 20 years and has been tested on over 2,000 projects valued over $2 billion, with a 98% success rating and savings of 10-30% on all project costs.
The global success of the Best Value Approach inspired Dr. Jacob to author the No-Influence Leadership Model, a radical approach to teaching leadership skills to students and professionals. This unique methodology empathizes that effective leadership is about understanding and aligning expertise without attempting to change or influence others. Dr. Jacob has taught this approach to over 8,000 management professionals, 1,500 college students, and 1,200 high school students. He has personally mentored over 150 students helping them use the No-Influence to develop lucrative careers and overcome personal instability.
