Communications Expert helps leaders reduce confusion and gain clarity by showing them how authenticity and self-awareness increase their bottom line.

As an authenticity and self-awareness expert, Norma Hollis offers new perspectives on understanding self and others. Her message helps leaders reduce confusion and gain clarity regarding human nature, leadership, communication and teamwork. She teaches, touches and transforms audiences while guiding them on a journey inside of themselves and helping them gain more understanding and therefore tolerance of each other. In the process she inspires audiences to take action to get more engaged in life while helping them become better leaders.

Norma researched authenticity and self-awareness for 30 years and discovered nine dimensions that impact our knowledge of self and how we engage in the world. Her work helps people gain clarity about themselves, confirmation about their life and courage to modify themselves to achieve their best life.

Norma’s understanding of self-awareness is grounded in her degree in human development and two decades directing large educational programs. In her second career she owned a speaker bureau and expanded her knowledge by studying speakers and how they shared their message.

Now as a speaker herself, Norma consults, speaks, trains and coaches on the value of self-awareness and how it can be achieved through authenticity. She is committed to making a difference in the world by helping people gain the strength and well-being that comes from self-awareness so that they can positively impact society and the organizations they work with.

Her presentations are an original mix of teaching, touching and transforming audiences through her inspirational training keynotes and seminars. In her signature presentation she shares knowledge of the importance of authenticity, administers her Authenticity Assessment and uses the results to help audiences apply their findings to themselves, their organizations, careers, parenting and team building. In the process audiences learn their leadership and communication style and how to ‘tweak’ one or two areas of their life to increase their level of success. She is a dynamic, memorable and transformational speaker whose audiences leave her presentations with specific action items that make a difference in their life.

In 2014 Norma was identified as one of the Top 100 Professionals in the Health Promotion Industry. She was also awarded the Collaborator of the Year award from the Professional Speakers Association. She is a Board Certified Coach and certifies coaches and speakers to deliver her authenticity process.

Authenticity in Today’s World: What Leaders Need to Know

The number one component of authentic leadership is self-awareness. A person who knows self is aware of their strengths and vulnerabilities and finds ways to maximize the strengths and fortify the vulnerabilities.

In this session, participants will increase self-awareness by examining their level of authenticity. This 90-minute inspirational training presentation is done in three parts:

  • Part 1 – Overview of the history and need for authenticity
  • Part 2 – Administering the Authenticity Assessment and explaining the Authenticity Grid

Find, Live and Share Your Natural Gifts and Talents
(Also referred to as The Gifts Game)

In this presentation Norma introduces audiences to the nine wisdom gifts that live within all of us. These gifts dictate how we view the world and how we best operate within the world.

 Norma administers an assessment that helps audience members discover their unique set of natural gifts and talents. Once the assessments are scored a game is played where audience members seek to find others with the same set of gifts they have.

This is followed by discussion and coaching to assess the experience, examine how different we all are, and the value of working with respect for each other’s natural gifts and talents of each other.

Outcomes:

  • Seeing self and team members from new perspectives
  • Learning how to identify the natural gifts and talents of others
  • Discovering the value of using natural gifts and talents whenever possible
  • Improving ability to listen to, communicate and respect each other
  • Increasing self-confidence
  • Increasing self-awareness

This program is also available for parents under the title “Raising Authentic Children”. The above concepts apply however they relate to children rather than adults.

Speak with Ease and Confidence

 In this presentation, participants learn the important components that enable them to speak authentically, with ease and confidence. While there are certain basic aspects of public speaking that are important and will be shared, what makes an individual most engaging is when they speak from the style that is natural to them.

 The focus will be on five elements of authentic speaking:

  • Being natural/authentic – enhances the speakers’ comfort level and promotes engagement
  • Pacing – makes it easier for the listener to receive the information shared
  • Articulation – so the listener can easily understand the words that are shared, even if the speaker has an accent
  • Gestures – an aspect of authenticity that allows the message to flow and promotes engagement
  • Comfort and Ease – works best when the speaker focuses on the audience rather than self

Being aware of who you are as a speaker in each of these categories enables the speaker to speak with maximum comfort and promotes engagement in a natural way.

Outcomes

  • Discover authentic communication style
  • Learn fundamental aspects of authentic communication
  • Apply basic communication principles to any message delivered
  • Reduce fear of speaking
  • Discover how to easily craft an effective message
  • Strengthen self-awareness
  • Discover the importance of passion when communicating
  • Become a more effective communicator

The R.A.P.I.D. S. Speaking System is an easy to follow framework that exposes the order of development most effective for rapid success as a speaker. The process moves speakers through the development of their message and all the other necessary steps to becoming a professional speaker.
