Imagemakers International is a unique company that develops leaders and entrepreneurs, for the 21st Century. Through our leadership & personal development seminars, executive and life coaching programs and inspiring keynotes, we give people the tools to become genuine leaders and the kind of person others are inspired to emulate.
Today, more than ever, there is a call for genuine leaders - at every level of every company. We need leaders who know who they are and what they stand for. We need leaders who are self-aware - who do the right thing and bring out the best in others. We need leaders who really care about their people and know the meaning of respect and the subtleties of respect. And finally, we need leaders who understand that there is a direct correlation between compassion and motivation, respect and results.
Genuine leadership as we see it, is not about title or position nor is it simply about leading others. Instead it's about how you lead yourself, the values you embrace and ultimately, the legacy you will leave behind. For that reason, we believe that everyone has the opportunity to be a genuine leader - in their families, communities, workplaces and ultimately, in the world. And the workplaces of today and tomorrow, will demand it.
Please contact me for a customized solution for all your leadership, professional development, high potential coaching and speaking needs: firstname.lastname@example.org We're here to help your people grow and in turn, help you create a work environment where everyone can reach their full potential and thrive!.

Date: Aug 13, 2012
Picture this. You have been invited to a function. As you enter the room, you look around and you're faced with a sea of unfamiliar faces. Your goal is to establish new relationships, but there’s only one problem – the thought of ‘schmoozing’ terrifies you. Yikes what to do! Well relax, you are not alone. According to the Shyness Research Institute of America, 88% of professionals feel uncomfortable in business and social situations.

Quite simply - by being genuine and making people feel comfortable and at ease. Here are a few tips that may just help you out...

Let's face it, this past year has been very difficult for businesses, everywhere. With budgets tight and resources limited, clients are being very cautious about their discretionary spending dollars. Anyone who is attempting to sell or market their services must recognize, therefore, that the need to build high trust, respect-filled relationships, has never been greater. And nowhere is this more evident than in the professional services industry. More and more accounting firms that we work with are asking their people to be more client focused. And more specifically, they are asking their people to move beyond the execution and delivery of services, to becoming more market focused in their dealings and interactions with their clients and prospects. Not an easy task for professionals who are geared more towards providing and delivering solutions rather than selling solutions. Sound familiar? Well for those of you who share this sentiment, you can take a big sigh of relief and relax because it's much easier than you think!
