Become a Sought-After Opportunity Maker by Adopting a Mutuality Mindset
More than title, talent, money, hard work or even charisma, the most sought-after individuals in our increasingly connected yet complex world are those who can recruit the right team to seize opportunities and solve problems faster and better than others. They share three traits: capacity to connect with unexpected allies who have complementary talents, recognize methods that leverage value for all participants and the ability to be frequently-quoted. Kare literally demonstrates the concrete cues that enable you to hone these skills. Organizations that thrive will explicitly support their employees and other key stakeholders in accomplishing greater things together via this approach. Nothing optimizes collective performance more than enabling people to use their best talents together around strong sweet spots of mutual interest. This approach clearly resonates as it has attracted over 1.7 million views of Kare Anderson’s TED talk on this topic.

Turn Employees Into Avid, Articulate Ambassadors of Your Organization’s Brand
Perhaps the biggest missed opportunity to attract more customers –and retain top talent — is to support your employees in engaging with customers, prospects and other key stakeholders in timely and helpful ways. Such connectivity strikes fear into the hearts of many executives, yet the upside benefits can far outweigh the mistakes.

- Optimize your organization’s talents and contacts to strengthen relationships with key stakeholders

Make Your Public Serving Event or Place More Meaningful by Storyboarding the Sequence of Scenes They Experience
Just as a movie director storyboards the sequence of scenes to pull audiences into the story, you can increase the number of positive multi-sensory and human interaction moments your “audience” feels when stepping into your place or event. From the first sight to the last touch, increase the multi-sensory cues that nudge people to participate more fully. Those who manage people-serving places or events can evoke a more memorable experience in staff and those they serve, using Kare’s behavioral research-based storyboarding method. Discover how to conduct an “Exposures Audit”, to then craft the moment-by-moment, one-of-a-kind experiences that others rave about.
If you want to be more visible and valued by being more frequently-quoted –and you want your colleagues to have the same opportunity to hone that talent — I strongly recommend you bring Kare Anderson to speak at your conference. I’ve seen, first-hand, how much she can help people become the unforgettable face of their organization.
Kare quickly had us enthralled as she spoke passionately of how we can make more of a lasting impact with our patients by how we position ourselves, what we wear, and how we speak. We have enjoyed many excellent lectures on patient satisfaction in the past and Kare’s talk repeated none of what we had heard before, and had us planning on how we would enter the office the next day before she was even finished speaking.
Kare Anderson captivated the audience with her sage advice. Her concrete ways to communicate and collaborate were well received. Kare cites relevant resources to solidify her points. I highly recommend Kare across all industries, especially for those who lead or are customer-facing!!!
We invited Kare to speak at the Walmart Home Office to our Finance Division. She was wonderful to work with and kept our needs at the forefront of our interaction. The results exceeded our expectations and the feedback from the event was very positive. We’ve had numerous requests to invite Kare to speak to the division again. Many who attended said that they felt it was a career changing event.
The insights you provided on personal influence were compelling, ethical, and prompted a great deal of intellectual curiosity through the audience.
You were the meeting’s highlight–all aimed at our seasoned sales force’s needs
