20 – We came here for a reason – with Terry Hawkins, Founder & CEO of People in Progress, Best Selling Author, Business Educator & Speaker

On today’s episode I had the privilege of speaking with Terry Hawkins, CEO & Founder of People in Progress, Best Selling Author, Business Educator and Speaker. She is a masterful educator in attitudinal and mindset change, cutting edge sales techniques, leadership development, temperament theories and relationship connectors, and communication strategies to name but a few. She has spoken to every industry imaginable using her uncanny ability to relate to any audience and her gifted simplicity to assist in the evolution of corporations and the people within those corporations.

Terry is also a bestselling author and well-established businesswoman. Her training company People In Progress Global was founded in 1989 and 28 years on it continues to be a leader in the delivery of high impact, results based learning. Having personally presented to over hundreds of thousands of people, Terry knows what works and what doesn’t work when getting results through education and her team of dynamic trainers continue to deliver her benchmark programs that People In Progress Global has become renowned.

There is so much goodness in this episode, but here are just a few takeaways:

  • Every pain that you’ve had expands your heart and sometimes we need  to go through the pain, get over it, learn the lessons and take the time to integrate
  • Getting past the business basics and getting back to the human side of people.
  • Understanding that we need to lift people up to get the best out of them
  • It’s important that we learn to disconnect from our story or past trauma to move forward in life
  • We came here for a reason – it doesn’t matter what happened
  • The difference between empathy and sympathy  – empathy is the action of compassion and sympathy is where you buy in to the other persons pain.
  • Understanding Empathy and sympathy to handle conflict
  • The top three traits to being a great leader:
    • Always look like you know what you’re doing
    • Be kind
    • Do the right thing
  • When we hear a NO – sometimes it’s meant to be to and learning to be ok with that
  • We are impacting people in 3 seconds
  • Relationships in business  are all about being truthful and being able to sit in that truth
  • The importance of honouring your business values through to the people who are on the front line
  • When a companies values & mission are delivered well to their people (the tribe) – The tribe keeps the tribe honest
  • Be clear on your purpose
  • Profit is a buy product of the tribe honouring the purpose, vision and values of the business
  • Having the courage to step away from what is not your strengths
  • New Year Resolutions– who do you want to be in the next 12 months? When you look back on 2018 – what do you want to be remembered for?

Terry Hawkins is a powerhouse woman with a big heart and a passion for people and she kindly delves into what makes people tick and I thank her for her honesty, compassion and beautiful humour.
