CEO Eclat People Solutions

John Lane-Smith

Introduced by: Mark Buckingham

John will be talking to us about how to engage people and talk to them about Rotary – and more importantly, to prompt them into inquiring about membership.

As Rotarians, we all know why we are in it. We are a few that make a difference for many, at local, national and international levels.

But how do you initiate a conversation with someone new about why they should look at joining a service club like Rotary. A lot of us may be confronting by “putting ourselves out there” or “selling” Rotary.

As one of the first advocates for emotional intelligence in Australia, John has been analysing people’s behaviour over the last 30 years using the world’s leading profiling systems to identify what makes people tick.

Having studied over 13,000 people in a diverse range of industries, John has built a superior model of excellence which identifies the key drivers of high performing executives, their exact preferences and dispositions. This unique methodology enables John to counsel organisations on hiring the right people for the right role and guide executives to better lead and promote cohesion within their teams.

His ability to provide enlightening insights around people’s unique motivations, behaviours and attitudes allow him to deliver outstanding results in shaping successful group dynamics. His superior and tailored service connects with people on both a professional and personal level, proving results that are truly invaluable.

John has some great insights into what makes people tick and a few tricks to break the ice and get past the initial awkwardness.
