Head Heart Body

“We work where the onset of change has left managers struggling and staff fearful and despondent. We change attitudes and create new paradigms which leave all who participate in your business revitalized and confident about the future. When you head to work knowing that no matter what happens you’ll be OK, you are more resilient and will contribute more. Hope is a wonderful thing.”
– Steve Haddan

Use Your Head

With 30 years’ experience as a bestselling sportswriter, award- winning salesman, actor, comedian/entertainer and radio and television personality, Steve Haddan presents the opening segment of the Head Heart Body Master Class. Having spent a lifetime studying the Science of Success, Steve fine-tunes the way you think, enabling clearer and more productive choices. Steve’s life-changing presentation ensures you seize every opportunity and just as importantly, don’t take yourself too seriously!

Opening the Head, Heart and Body experience, Steve immediately engages the group with humour and honesty, cementing empathy and establishing trust. Even the most cynical delegate becomes a willing participant in the inspired adventure to follow.

How you choose to feel about your life determines how much you’ll enjoy it. “Use Your Head” is an examination of what we have to offer as individuals and the choices we make to achieve what we want – at work and at home.

Session Overview:
Calling on his 30-year experience as one of Australia’s busiest entertainers and business comedians, Steve welcomes the group and tells of the short but remarkable history of the HHB Master Class, and the steps he took to reconstruct his career after 20 years with the Nine Network.

The first interactive exercise is a self-introduction of the participants which paints a compelling picture of the personalities involved. Steve then shares his own personal story – the highs, the lows – a life lived, experience gained, challenges met. He speaks candidly of his adoption, surviving divorce, the death of a son and his subsequent recovery from alcoholism.

He then examines the concept of creative intelligence and how we unlock the power and potential which is within us all. Decision, action, persistence. Steve’s second hour is an examination of the Science of Success…it’s about attitude, gratitude, discipline, surrender, acceptance, taking the good with the bad, self-honesty, becoming the best that you can be, and re-discovering the inherent enjoyment in everything you do.

Business leaders often state that one of the most important pre-requisites at work is an ability to communicate well. However when asked what makes a good communicator, many people are unable to respond with a clearly defined set of skills.

Imagine how valuable you’d be to your organization if you were able to master the qualities that make a good communicator. Imagine the positive impact this would have on your ability to get on with your colleagues and customers and get the things that you want. Good communication skills can help you avoid conflict, solve problems and are critical to building a team-orientated culture at work.
