Why Should Anyone Be Led By YOU?
What it takes to be an authentic leader
When business results depend on leading others, it helps to understand what followers need. Yet too many leaders emulate celebrity CEO's or bosses they admire, trying to be people they aren’t. As a result, they often fail. If your leaders fail, your organisation will too.
Successful leaders remain true to who they are, while simultaneously modifying their behaviour to respond to the needs of their followers and the circumstances they encounter. They are able to be themselves — more — with skill.
Drawing from the research of Professors Goffee and Jones from the London Business School this compelling keynote presentation challenges audiences to consider their own authentic approach to leadership and learn the essential leadership practices required to excite their followers to exceptional performance.
Your audience will:
- Examine authentic leadership and the challenges of leading in our current environment.
- Explore the 4 critical needs of followers (Community, Authenticity, Significance, Excitement) and consider how effectively they are meeting these.
- Learn essential leadership practises allowing them to be themselves – more – with skill.
- Develop their own own authentic answer to the question; Why Should Anyone Be Led By YOU?
Your people will lead with even more authentic passion and drive as they understand themselves and others; stepping into their own unique leadership style with greater skill.
Engage: Creating Partnership Across Boundaries.
Getting full engagement is too big a job for senior management alone. You need to get everyone, at every level of the organisation, to take responsibility for making it happen.
This powerful and insightful keynote is designed for audiences made up of representatives from all levels of your organisation – "top", "middle", "bottom" and even your clients.
Engage shines a light on the ‘worlds’ that exist at each level in your organisation and creates the understanding necessary for each person, regardless of title or rank, to build better relationships with everyone they work with – the key to engagement.
Your audience will learn:
- How their position within your organisation affects their (and others) behaviour.
- How to approach others – no matter their position – in a way that brings about partnership and engagement.
- How to look beyond their ‘patch’ and think more strategically.
- How they can take responsibility for building engagement.Give your leaders powerful tools and techniques to embrace even greater engagement across all levels of the organisation.
Give your leaders powerful tools and techniques to embrace even greater engagement across all levels of the organisation.
Merging two organisations, business units or teams is a strategy that is supposed achieve synergy right?
But in the midst of financial and operational targets, two (or more) groups of people – often very different to each other – find they need to work together.
Integrating these groups is usually where the merger process comes unstuck.
This transformative keynote presentation is designed for audiences who have recently experienced - or are about to encounter - a merger or acquisition.
It demonstrates to people how their culture, with its own “rules”, can influence their behaviour - rules that they are often unaware of, and are usually unspoken.
The overall goal is to have your audience gain a deeper appreciation of those hidden drivers by powerfully experiencing and understanding a culture different to their own.
The results? They emerge a united business unit.
Your audience will learn:
- The differences between “dominant” and “other” cultures.
- Key strategies for understanding and building relationships with cultures different from their own.
- How they can take responsibility for the success of the merger– no matter their position.
The Energy Edge
Leaders are the stewards of organisational energy.
Brilliant leaders know how to skillfully use their energy to get things done and inspire others to do the same. But how do you maintain the energy levels required to lead day after day, year after year?
This entertaining keynote demonstrates how great leaders maintain their energy.
But it’s not about time management.
The Energy Edge is about the proven practices needed to build energy and capacity into your daily business and personal life.
Your audience will learn:
- How to use their personal energy as distinct from their time to remain energised.
- Energising rituals and habits they can build into their daily routine for greater momentum.
- How to set personal and professional goals that truly inspire them - and those around them.
Don't you and your people deserve a more competitive - and energetic - edge?

At the end of today, I am pleased to report that there are a lot of “bowling balls” being placed on desks, lots of “Door B’s” being chosen and still plenty of buzz from the day. Your presentation has provided the “hook” to keep us on song. Thanks again.
Karen Edwards, A / General Manager Human Resources Strategy, Roads and Traffic Authority
Paul Mitchell recently spoke at a breakfast event titled “Why Should Anyone Be Led By You?". The audience was made up of 50 of our clients mainly Chief Financial Officers and Chief Executives. These events are a core part of our business in terms of our marketing and the promotion of our brand and therefore the calibre of speaker and content are critical. Paul delivered a session that was outstanding, the content was clear and strategic and delivered in a captivating and energetic way. I have known Paul for many years and his insights into leadership coupled with his enthusiasm and compassion are a winning combination.

Paul met our high expectations and was a motivating, energising and humorous speaker...We had excellent feedback from the attendees and we are now using the “top”, “middle”, “bottom” jargon around the office.
Vanessa Beer, Director, Practice Services Enterprise Application Services, Fujitsu Australia & New Zealand
Wherever I walked today in the Human Resource Strategy area of our building, everyone was buzzing about your session. All day there has been lots of talk about “Door A”, “ponds”, “bowling balls”, “top”, “middle”, “bottom”, “stuff”.
Thank you so much. It was just the right session for this group and for the time of the day. It really engaged them, while conveying to them some very valuable lessons. As always your style is so stimulating that we just want to spend more time with you.
Elinor Crossing, Principal Advisor Leadership & Management Development, Roads & Traffic Authority
Paul’s irreverent style, unique perspective, and great sense of humour was captivating from the start and provided a fast- paced energetic whirlwind of an afternoon.
The simple, everyday, common-sense advice had the team nodding in “this just makes so much sense” kind of way, and all have been genuine in their positive feedback since.
The session was the stand out of our Conference, and other people in the business are hearing about its success.
The team have already adopted phrases into our vernacular and have energetically taken parts from the program and are putting them into practice ... great signs of how valuable they personally found it.
Andrew Clarke, Managing Director, Mars Foods Australia New Zealand
Your Keynote address to 300 of our staff included very practical examples, easy to understand concepts and, most importantly, humour. Your energy and enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me
In my view, your address left our staff motivated and engaged to make the "small tweaks" our business needs.
Michael Stibbard, Director, Deloitte Private
We recently had the pleasure of hosting a Boardroom Lunch with Paul Mitchell as Keynote speaker. The lunch was attended by 25 leading HR professionals and in line with our philosophy of providing "learning with a difference"we asked Paul to create a unique and memorable experience for this senior group.
Paul's presentation was absolutely fabulous. His use of research and theory balanced with his insights and relevant examples struck a chord with the audience. He managed to keep our attention, create real energy in the room and provide considerable take home value in what was really a tough and limited time frame.
The feedback from our guests has been overwhelmingly positive.It was certainly a great outcome for Hattonneale and helped us achieve our own goal of providing value and building trusted partnerships.
