Business / Organizational Focus

Conquering the Enemies Blocking Progress in Your Business/Organization  

Polishing Leaders into Diamonds

Business School is great for running a business/organization, but does not give you the necessary people skills to negotiate, manage conflicts, sell, and present.

The smarter you/your company/organization is…the more likely you are to have unique limitations (Enemies) You have grown to a level of success and ability and you are now confronted by the roadblocks, (Enemies) that will stop your growth. What you know is often the greatest Enemy to what you need to know /learn.

In Stephanie’s 33 years of experience in companies/organizations she has found that:

“Your relationship with your customers is what will ultimately make or break your business/organization; much more than your brand, your technical skills, or your product pizzazz.” 

Stephanie Shipper

Stephanie offers ‘genius’ skill sets that take you and your peak performers past the personal limitations (your Enemies to Progress,) in sales, negotiations, conflict resolution and presentation skills.

My programs were created to Polish your Leaders into Diamonds and restore the Invincible to your People’s Performance and Progress.

Polishing Leaders into Diamonds

The word diamond stems from the Greek word ‘adamas’…meaning ‘invincible/ unconquerable.’ All diamonds possess imperfections, some seen, some unseen without magnification. Diamonds are carbon atoms formed under tremendous stress. All diamonds can fracture under particular stress factors never achieving their full brilliance or value.

Through genius strategies from Neurolinguistic Programming, NLP Stephanie offers a set of trainings and continued coaching to tease out the Enemies to Invincible Performance…growing your company/organization past the stress factors to brilliant performance.

The methodology is based on her 33 years of experience in the art and science of Neurolinguistic Programming, NLP. NLP is a study of strategies of genius communicators and is required training for 70% of Fortune 500 Executives. The training is supplemented by Brain Training to grow attention, memory. and precision from the combined expertise of Edu-Kinesiology/Brain Gym.

“Stephanie Shipper is a rare speaker and presenter. Without any hype she connects with her audience at the deepest levels. Our people were locked in to her message and were transfixed. Stephanie had us leaning in and asking for more as we experienced her message viscerally, intellectually, and emotionally. Stephanie doesn’t present information, she confronts you with truth, insight, wisdom and your own humanity. She is a five star human.”
