A powerful story teller
What most audiences appreciate from a speaker is authenticity.
Jack’s experiences in everyday life are not unlike anyone
else’s; he just knows how to find a message in those
Over the past 7 years he has given over 100 presentations.
Jack uses storytelling and challenging questions to help people
and organizations recognize the human side of work.
Values, Purpose and the Pursuit of Significance
As individuals we do goal setting; as corporations we do
strategic planning, all in the search for success. However,
those individuals who look back on their lives with joy do
not simply measure their successes. Organizations that are
consistently profitable look beyond success.
Jack uses stories from personal experiences, corporate stories
and fairy tales, in order to present a simple truth; “most
of us find little satisfaction with success”. Life’s
journey is based on “a driving sense of purpose”
and a strong “set of core values”.
This presentation can be presented with a focus on the individual and how values and purpose affect their lives. It is also very effective when an organization is struggling with internal or external changes.
Enough of that serious stuff, lets lighten up.
There is a time and place for everything.
Keynotes set the tone of a meeting; they can inspire and
fire up the audience. But there are times when the best thing
to do is change the pace.
After a morning of intense breakout sessions,
what is needed is a presentation that can help you digest
If your conference needs that change of pace presentation,
give one of these a try.
Time, Technology and Prozac
This is a paradoxical look at technology from Gutenberg
If technology has made us so much more effective and productive at work, why are we working longer hours?
Jack’s storytelling makes this a light and lively presentation
and yet it will leave the audience with questions about how
they work and how they deal with people.
The presentation is easily tailored to focus on customer
service, general business or as a break from that overpowering
AMERICANEESE: The Art of Communication
How can we ever be lost for words when there are over 800,000
definitions in the dictionary? Why is it that we can argue
with someone for twenty minutes only to find out that we were
in agreement all a long?
What has happened to the lost art of storytelling and why
is it that we look at questions as a pain in the butt, when
we thrive on “fact finding”?
Americans have made communication very complicated. This
presentation points out all of the silly little things that
we do when we try to communicate. It certainly is not a lecture
on how to diagram a sentence nor does it define a dangling
participle. It pokes fun at how we communicate.
The objective of the presentation is to have the audience
spend a little more time and energy the next time they handle
a complaint from an irate customer, discipline an employee
or simply ask their teenager to straighten up their bedroom.
Workshops for the Time Challenged Organization
How about a fast moving interactive custom designed program that
gets results in less than half a day?
CARROLL DYNAMICS offers two programs that get results.
- AIN'S MISBEHAVIN' introduces the participants to the different behavior styles of the people
they work with. It is great for team building programs or sales meetings as well
as management retreats.
- DISFUNCTIONAL COMMUNICATION addresses how things can go so horribly
wrong when simple situations are compounded when someone misspeaks.
- THE ART OF THE QUESTION here is a workshop that energizes the most important tool in the communication toolbox. And no matter what your teachers told you there is such a thing as a stupid question.
These programs are customized to meet the needs of the audience and the time available.
