“Be a leader even when you are the only one in the team”
Involved in leading individuals, teams and organisations for over 30 years, Shane believes that leading is a skill that can be learnt and practised. He also believes that before we do anything else, we need to lead ourselves.
Shane will give you the formula to change your life by simply picking that shirt, going with the long black instead of the flat white, all while dancing with a Suzuki motorcycle around the fuel bowsers at a service station in a small country town.
“It’s time to fix the Fixers”
What’s the ‘Fixers’ purpose? The constant daze of continual change makes it almost impossible to work out but two things lie at the heart of it all. Culture and Frameworks. ‘Fixers’ frameworks and culture, are the cornerstone for ‘Fixers’ and their organisations to find their purpose.
Shane shows how to promote the values of change and development over process and control, discover the value of integration to create opportunities and restrict limitations and foster frameworks and cultures that enshrine the effective preservation of your greatest asset – your people.
Even if it means rethinking your drinking habits in a packed courtroom….
“Make Culture your Value Proposition”
Culture is the one thing that lies at the heart of us all. It’s the ethos, the spirit, the vibe that keeps us together. But to do so, culture is something that must be practiced both as an individual and as a group. Culture defines us. It is our character.
Learn how to ensure that culture remains the essence that drives our lives, interests and organisations. Why it must be our value proposition. Even if it means practicing your quick-draw in your underpants in the locker room in front of a mirror.
