Custom Training Programs

Do you feel comfortable delivering bad news to a team member? Do you look forward to speaking in public? Do you enjoy small talk and networking? Is it easy for you to speak your mind and be assertive? If you answered no to any of these questions, this training is for you.

Based on my book Reach, this training will help you and your team take what you’re most afraid of and make it a proud part of your personal repertoire. You will walk away with new insight into the challenges you face in stepping outside your comfort zone; how and why you tend to avoid these situations, and a set of concrete tips and tools that you can immediately implement into your everyday life at work.

In this highly interactive (and fun) training program,
your employees and team members will learn:

1

Why it can be so hard to act outside your comfort zone (and how you avoid doing it)

2

That you’re not alone: many very accomplished people have the same challenges

3

How you can develop the courage and capacity to step outside your comfort zone

4

Very specific tools, tips, and frameworks that you can immediately use at work

This training program will offer specific tips, tools, and frameworks for stepping outside your comfort zone and reaching your true potential.

"Andy presented to Bank of America’s Employee Network, L.E.A.D – dedicated to the Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Development for Women. We had over 450 participants which is one of the strongest turn outs we have ever had because the topic is of paramount importance to our associates. As we think about professional development at the Bank, we continue to find ourselves discussing how to overcome the key barrier of “comfort zone”, i.e. how can we as an organization give our associates the tools and support to “take the leap” and push themselves in ways that are uncomfortable in order to help them achieve their professional ambitions. This is not easy! Having Andy's perspective was incredibly valuable for the group and the feedback we’ve received has been tremendous. Associates were impressed with Andy's ability to make a complex topic relatable and, in particular, his use of examples through his research made it easy for them to understand how to use Andy's tools in their day to day lives. Associates told us they had not really been able to pinpoint the reasons for their discomfort in taking on new challenges, and that this discussion of the root causes of avoidance was particularly insightful. Andy's session was exactly the type of content that we find valuable for our organization and we hope we can have him back soon."

"When I first heard Andy speak on the topic of stepping outside your comfort zone, I was thoroughly impressed. I knew this topic would be perfectly aligned with Dell’s Global Marketing Rotation Program (HiPo Program). We partnered with Andy to come and speak with the program participants during our Annual Conference in Austin, TX. The way in which Andy presented the content (structured/simple/actionable) as well as the workshop format,made for an impactful event. The members walked away with tangible things they could put in to action immediately and got much value out of the ½ day session – he was rated extremely high on our post conference survey. I would highly recommend Andy and this topic – he has done so much work in this arena which brings so much value!"

"Andy presented the ”REACH Training Program” to our up and coming talent at Reebok. Everyone agreed that Andy’s approach is extremely personable, clear, confident and interactive. The exercises and group discussions helped to crystalize key messages and apply content on the job immediately. Participants enjoyed the program so much they asked for ongoing follow up sessions where they can learn more and hold each other accountable for actions plans. We are excited to have Andy return and continue the dialogue on Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone!"
