You CAN Teach a P.I.G to Sing

OL116-17  |  On Demand  |  Update  |  Self-Study


This program is based on Mary Jane's top selling book, You CAN Teach a Pig to Sing – Create Great Relationships…with Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime, Anywhere. In this insightful and motivational keynote speech, you will discover the secrets to building extraordinary relationships with employees, colleagues, clients, or members of your own family. Her innovative, laugh-out-loud, "I can share this today" insights for getting along with anyone, anytime, anywhere…even those painfully irritating guys (or gals), aka PIGs, will keep you engaged, thinking, considering the changes you plan to put into practice. 

In this presentation, you will get these amazing results: 

  • Gain greater levels of self-awareness. When you master yourself you manage others better. 
  • Increase your ability to self-manage and be run by your outcomes, not your emotions.
  • Develop your vision of the future for stronger relationships. 
  • Increase your competence and confidence in dealing with less-than-perfect people (everyone, including yourself)... Resulting in stronger relationships, more cohesive teams and increased productivity and profitability. 

Anyone in a position to influence others has to deal with PIGs - those Pesky Incessant Gripers, Painfully Intolerable Gasbags, or Particularly Influential Guys/Gals you struggle to connect with. Everyone has someone who has kept them up at night, wondering, "How do I deal with this person?" This powerful program offers you new, eye-opening ways to turn around the most resistant, resentful, or reluctant person and get them working with you instead of against you. 

You will discover the: 

  • Power in creating a relationship "vision" 
  • Benefit in "stamping" your PIG for the results you want 
  • Importance of pigging out on the good stuff 
  • Benefit of monitoring your PIG lingo 
  • Power of your "PIG Pause" button 
  • Freedom that comes with donning your Cape of Acceptance™

Let’s face it. Good relationships are simple good business. In fact, they make for profitable business!
