    Surrounded by idiots? Here's how to get rid of them!

    Have you ever argued with your partner and felt like your words and feelings did not get understood? Ever had a colleague you don’t get along with, regardless of how accommodating you are?

    In this lecture Thomas helps you understand those incomprehensible situations, conversations and people. Just because we’re all different doesn’t mean we can’t function together in both social and professional situations. Thomas wants to help you manage the people you don’t get along with, but he also wants you to leave the lecture with a heightened self-awareness regarding your own behaviour and what it communicates beyond your words.

    With the help of models from the world of behavioural science, Thomas’s own experiences and a dash of humour will give you and your organisation an introduction into how to think, to get through and to get results with behavioural archetypes. Thomas wants you to be able to take his lessons beyond the lecture and use them at home, in the office or while you mingle.

    The lecture can be customized to fit the specific needs of your organization and shift focus on e.g. leadership, sales, service, customer relations, conflict resolution etc.

    How to handle a psychopath in everyday life?

    Most of us have had the unfortunate luck of ending up in a social situation with a psychopath. More often than not, we are not aware of it. The hidden agenda, the hunger to manipulate and the opportunistic behaviour. These people are often leaders at their organisations. In the world of a psychopath, a fellow human being is a tool used to fulfil an objective. They live in a reality characterised as – eat or be eaten.

    In this lecture, Thomas will give you the tools to identify a psychopath, and also how you should manage these behavioural patterns in order to get along with your colleague, but also in a way that protects you from being used. Together, you’ll explore the scientific insights on psychopaths and discover how you can handle the interactions and relationships with psychopaths in work as well in your private life.

    When you leave this lecture Thomas wants you to feel confident that you will not be taken advantage of by a psychopath as you will be able to identify, manage and communicate efficiently with one.

    Leadership – why become a leader? And why is the job so difficult?

    A boss can never do everything right in the eyes of one’s employees. The boss is either invisible and uncommitted or breathing down the employees’ neck. One exaggeration take turns with another. In the worst of worlds, the relationship suffers to the extent that a dialogue between leadership and manpower is non-existent. How did it end up so bad? What can you do as a leader or employee?

    Thomas has trained over 4500 executives in his career. Regardless of what problems exists between leadership and workforce, no Excel sheet, sales goal or kick-off meeting can impact the relationship as much as the core of it – the communication.

    During this lecture Thomas wants to give you – the leader, future leader or employee that wants to improve the relationship with your boss – the tools to manage your relationship to your executives or employees in the best possible manner. How does your counterpart function? How does your counterpart respond to your behaviour? How can you use these insights to make the relationship work for you and not against you?

    Thomas will go through this and much more, with the help of cases from his experience in training executives, findings in behavioural sciences and hopefully your stories as well.
