Have you ever had a great idea only to have it shot down? Come with an open mind to Discover, Experience and Apply key Behavioural Based Insights to communicate and gain buy-in when presenting an idea every time you speak.

In this lively and revealing interactive session, world-class communicator, and Certified Virtual Presenter JJ Brun, will demonstrate why people often feel, think, and act the way they do after saying no to you and your idea. Imagine what you could accomplish when you:

learn why many people fail to be convincing
learn to identify the preferred communication style of others
learn how to present an idea, in ways to enhance and ensure buy-in

As a result, participants will learn to Discover, Experience and Apply Behavioural Based Insights "OPERATIVE INSIGHTS" to enhance their abilities to effectively interact with others and present their idea and gain more buy-in more often.

Learning Outcomes:

  • You will learn and Discover your own preferred communication style and why you fail to be convincing.
  • You will learn and Experience behavioural insights to identifying, reading, and overcoming reservations, hesitation and/or objections.
  • You will learn and Apply what is needed to transform a toxic work environment into a thriving workplace of inclusion, trust, and respect

Speaker bio(s)
Jean (JJ) Brun

Jean Jacques Brun or JJ, as he is also known internationally, is a Global Leader in Communications and Relationship Development. In 1999, after completing 20 years within the Canadian Forces (15 years within the Intelligence Branch), JJ founded DHC Training Solutions, a training and consulting company dedicated to informing and enlighten people about Human Behaviour and effective communication practices across cultures. JJ has seen firsthand the revelation such knowledge can bring to personal and professional relationships. DHC Training Solutions is founded on the belief that knowledge of Human Behaviour is a skill set required to enrich both professional and personal relationships. Anyone looking to better understand themselves and other people will find what they need with JJ. Speaking to everyone from government officials, industry leaders, to university students, JJ has helped hundred of thousands of people learn how to relate and communicate more effectively across cultures. His years of service within the Intelligence Branch field of Human Intelligence (HUMINT) fostered his interest in how people feel, think, and act the way they do. Through JJ’s unique application (Operative Insights) of the Four Temperament Model of Human Behaviour, a force multiplier methodology of understanding Human Behaviour across cultures, JJ now provides key behavioural insights to reading people, decoding their preferred communication style and on how to interpret and respond to that information accordingly. JJ draws on his many years of experience as a thought leader within the field of human behaviour having accumulated close to 30,000 hours within this field. In addition to his impressive military career JJ is a sought-out instructor at the Ottawa University (uO) Professional Development Institute (PDI), whereas his Influencing and Leading Others training program remains one of the most popular and in demand at uO PDI. Leaders and decision makers around the globe turn to JJ to get them moving in the right direction, toward more effective communication practices. Ensuring communication is clear right from the start saves immense amounts of time, effort, and lives. Learning about the communication needs and styles of other people, learning to recognize them and adapt to them, is the key to be a more effective communicator. This ability is useful from the boardroom to the classroom. JJ has dedicated his life and his business to learning the principles of human behaviour and effective communication practices across cultures. That commitment shines through in everything he does.
