 3.  New Framework for Leadership

Audiences ranging from senior managers to trainees love the sheer simplicity and practicality of his new Wisdom-Skills framework for leadership. Wisdom means knowing what to do next under fast-changing conditions, and Skills mean the ability to do it or get it done. It also provides a simple structure for profiling employees for filling their competency gaps.

Wisdom-Skills Competency Matrix

Wisdom-Skills Competency Matrix

Your audience will love the simplicity of this Competency Matrix:

The Wisdom-Skills Matrix is founded on his holistic new model for leadership comprising of six core competencies symbolized by Heart, Mind, Body, Passion, Focus, and Health. Studies show that about 75% of leadership development programs have failed to produce leaders, mainly due to the lack of a clear understanding of leadership. This holistic new 6-dimensional model is very easy to understand and use for leadership development.

6-dimensions-of-success

The Six Dimensions of Leadership

Developing leaders without a model is like building a house without a plan ~  Dr. Asoka Jinadasa, Author of Flying Penguin

His new framework is founded on his award-winning concept of boosting individual and team performance through Human Potential Development. This is achieved by inspiring people to empower themselves through Intrinsic Motivation to unleash their vast inborn human potential:

 


4.  New Model for Training

What limits employee performance and engagement is rarely a shortfall in their Hard Skills (work-related knowledge, skills, tools and processes). It is deficiencies in their mostly-neglected Inner Soft Skills (physical and mental energy and self-confidence) and Outer Soft Skills (verbal and non-verbal communication).

Conventional training can’t bridge these gaps. Aberdeen Research has found that 85 to 90% of training has no lasting effect beyond 120 days. As the Ebbinghouse forgetting curve estimates, after 21 days we remember only about 50% of what we are taught.

Rather than teaching new skills people quickly forget, Dr. Jin inspires them to empower themselves through Intrinsic Motivation. The Pygmalion or Rosenthal Effect has shown that treating low performers as high performers in a demanding military training environment can raise their abilities by 15% within 16 weeks. This finding is the key to boosting staff performance.

Dr. Jin first develops their attitudinal and behavioral Soft Skills. He guides them to unleash their vast inborn human potential using Oriental energy techniques and Modern neuroscience. He shows how to transform their negative emotions and limiting beliefs that mentally restrict their ability to learn new things and achieve higher levels of success.

This is followed by specific techniques for improving their work-related Hard Skills: Exceeding Targets, Boosting Sales Performance, Developing Leadership Skills, Building & Leading High-performance Teams, Coaching & Mentoring, Nurturing Creativity & Innovation, Improving Speaking & Presentation Skills, Developing Mindfulness, and enjoying Stress-free Natural Health with Work-Life Balance.

Dr. Jin presents innovative new ideas in a humorous way that audiences love and remember. For example, how a baby with a wet diaper symbolizes the need for transformational change:

His programs produce energized, empowered, and engaged employees who can better respond to opportunities and threats while carrying out their assigned tasks. The result? They create learning organizations that can thrive under fast-changing conditions by optimizing the hundreds of decisions made every day at every level in every department.

 11.  Full Range of Topics and Programs

About 85% of a company’s assets are linked to the intangible capital residing within humans (Brookings Institute). Employees thus hold the key to organizational success since corporate bottom lines are mostly made on the frontlines.

Higher levels of individual and workplace energy produce Sustainable Employee Engagement that pushes annual operating margins up to 27% (Towers Watson). This requires a new breed of energy-based training programs.

To meet that objective, Dr. Jin has developed the programs outlined below. They help your team empower themselves through Intrinsic Motivation for maximizing their individual and team performance:

  1. Developing company-wide leadership skills
  2. Doubling sales by winning The Inner Game
  3. Coaching & mentoring to boost team performance
  4. Managing change through creativity and innovation
  5. New HR paradigm for architecting winning organizations
  6. Attaining natural health, mindfulness, and work-life balance.
To maximizes ROTI (Return on Training Investment), each program is customized to meet specific event and audience objectives. Participants are energized, empowered, motivated, and armed with the mindset and skillset needed to achieve the desired objectives under different operating conditions.

1. Developing company-wide leadership skills

Organizational success depends on their ability to adapt quickly to fast-changing operating conditions. Leadership training limited to senior staff is no longer sufficient, since corporate bottom lines are mostly made on the front lines, and service delivery takes place without management supervision. Research suggests that about 75% of organizations find their leadership development programs ineffective.

To develop leadership skills and empower employees at all levels, work-related Hard Skills must be developed in parallel with attitudinal, behavioral, and intuitive Soft Skills. This will optimize the hundreds of decisions made every day at every level in every department to produce learning organizations that thrive even under turbulent conditions. The Wisdom-Skills Matrix and the six-dimensional model of leadership provide a practical new framework for developing company-wide leadership skills.

Takeaways:  How to use the 6-dimensional framework to develop leadership skills  How to use the wisdom-skills matrix to estimate training needs  How to boost individual and team performance  How to find new ways to enhance service delivery and brand experience.

Target Group: Managers, team leaders, employees at all levels
Format: 1- to 2-hour presentation, or 1- to 2-day workshop.

2. Doubling sales by winning the Inner Game

Sales teams that can produce superior results under competitive market conditions are a primary driver of organizational success. However, 85 to 90% of sales training has no lasting effect beyond 120 days (Aberdeen Research).

A high percentage of sales revenue is generated by a small minority of top performers. In complex scenarios, this gap between average and star performers is almost 200%. Even a small narrowing of this gap will produce a dramatic improvement in sales revenue.

This requires a new approach to sales training. Traditional programs focus on winning the Outer Game of Selling in competitive markets against rival offerings by using complex sales techniques. These are of little use in real-life sales situations. And they rarely cover non-verbal communication and personal energy that are essential for sales success.

This innovative program focuses on winning the Inner Game of Selling against internal adversaries such as negative emotions, limiting beliefs, and low energy and self-confidence. It uses a blend of Modern Science and Oriental Methods to maximize the physical and mental energy of salespeople at all levels. It helps them to identify their weaknesses and improve them by eliminating mental roadblocks and raising self-confidence.  Role-playing with video recordings helps them test-drive their new sales skills expressed through verbal and non-verbal communication.

Takeaways:  How to use a 4-dimensional framework to develop sales skills  How to use a 5-point presentation format to convince prospects easily  How to use body language and covert persuasion skills  How to transform negative emotions and limiting beliefs How to maximize physical and mental energy for selling  How to find new ways to double sales within weeks.

Target Group: Sales managers and sales staff.
Format: 1- to 2-hour presentation, or 1- to 2-day workshop.

3. Coaching and mentoring to boost team performance

Many companies are using coaching and mentoring to unleash employee potential alongside the more traditional training methods. Employee motivation is mostly governed by the coaching and mentoring abilities of their supervisors.

The Pygmalion or Rosenthal Effect has shown that treating low performers as high performers in a demanding military training environment can raise their abilities by 15% within 16 weeks. This shows that supervisory skills govern team performance.

However, without a proper model, coaching and mentoring programs can only provide ad hoc solutions.  The 6-dimensional competency model provides a complete framework for effective coaching and mentoring. This program explains when and how to use coaching and mentoring to help team members reach higher levels of success.

Takeaways:  Understanding the difference between coaching and mentoring  When to use coaching and mentoring  Simple methods for coaching and mentoring  How to use the 6-dimensional competency model to develop team skills.

Target Group: Managers, team leaders
Format: 1- to 2-hour presentation, or 1-day workshop.

4. Managing change through creativity and innovation

creativity-innovation-success

Creativity and innovation are the two keys to organizational success in a fast-changing world. A global poll showed that 84% of executives claimed innovation was extremely important to their growth strategies. But, a staggering 94% were dissatisfied with their organizations’ innovation performance.

This program nurtures company-wide creativity and innovation as the key to corporate survival and growth under turbulent conditions. It explains how to eliminate the fear of failure that hinders creativity, and how to use different thinking modes for creativity and innovation. It advocates balancing rational left-brain and creative right-brain activities for boosting creativity. It explains how to align business strategy with the most relevant innovation strategy.

Takeaways: Framework for unleashing creativity and nurturing innovation  How to develop creativity through whole brain integration  How to align innovation and business strategies  How to develop a corporate culture that fosters creativity and innovation.

Target Group: Managers, team leaders, employees at all levels
Format: 1- to 2-hour presentation, or 1-day workshop.

 5. New HR paradigm for architecting winning organizationscogrunning

About 85% of a company’s assets are linked to the intangible capital residing within humans (Brookings Institute).

HR has to deliver corporate superstars who can lead their companies to success under increasingly unpredictable operating conditions. This requires a shift from conventional Human Resource Development to a more holistic Human Potential Development.

To manage accelerating change, work-related Hard Skills must be developed in parallel with attitudinal and behavioral Soft Skills. This empowers employees to sense threats and opportunities relating to their assigned tasks. Such an employee-based feedback system can create learning organizations that can respond quickly to both market opportunities and competitive threats.

Takeaways:  How to integrate work-related Hard Skills with intuitive Soft skills  How to use the wisdom-skills matrix to evaluate training needs  How to use the holistic 6-dimensional framework to develop hard and soft skills  How to make HR a driver of organizational success

Target Group: Senior Managers, HR managers
Format: 1- to 2-hour presentation, or 1-day workshop.

6. Attaining natural health, mindfulness, and work-life balance

Benefits from corporate wellness programs include lower absenteeism, higher job satisfaction, higher productivity, higher employee retention, and lower healthcare costs. However, most wellness programs don’t address all the related issues in a simple manner that can be used in everyday situations.

This program draws on Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science to provide simple methods that are easy to practice daily. It provides simple but powerful techniques to maintain an 8-point work-life balance, enjoy natural health, de-stress almost instantly, cultivate relaxed concentration, and change negative emotions by changing the point of view.

Takeaways: How to de-stress almost instantly  How to eliminate negative emotions  How to enjoy natural health without drugs  Simple ways to develop mindfulness  How to maintain a work-life balance using an 8-point framework.

Target Group: Managers, team leaders, employees at all levels
Format: 1- to 2-hour presentation, or 1-day workshop.
