Succeeding in today’s competitive business environment requires business people at all levels to ‘Raise their Game’ in order to succeed. The challenge with ‘Raising Your Game’ is that very few people can tell you how.
Lynn Baker beat the odds when she rose from a junior sales representative in Cape Town to the International Corporate Sales Manager of a global company in London. She then went on to build her own multi million rand businesses in South Africa. Lynn now shares what she believes are some valuable guidelines on how one can Raise Your Game in business.
Evolve from being a company Employee to a company Asset
Just doing your job and delivering what is expected are no longer enough to succeed! Millions of people are qualified to do your job; it’s what you do differently that makes you an asset to the company. Being an asset means knowing more about your business, your products, your services and your competition than anyone else and then using that knowledge to the benefit of the business. It also means increasing your ‘Sphere of Influence’ and giving more than expected.
Evolve from Communicating to Connecting with Others
Everyone talks, few people connect and on the basis that people do business with people they like and people they trust, relationship building is more important than ever.
Evolve from being presentable to a Powerful Personal Brand
Perception is reality and people make judgments about us and the company we represent within 100 milliseconds of meeting us. Have you ever considered the impression you are creating and the perception you are leaving behind? The time has come to shift from having a presentable image to a powerful personal brand that is of benefit to you and the company you represent.
"... What I found particularly refreshing having now worked with you, is your desire to be involved over and above the role you were commissioned to perform. Throughout the lead up to the conference you demonstrated a flexibility and willingness to adapt to our business needs and contribute to the business elements of our conference above and beyond your remit. This was very welcome and differentiates you from many other conference speakers."

"We had the pleasure of Lynn Baker as our Master of Ceremony for the launch of the FNB Stadium Conference and function facilities. Presenting to 300 guests in a 90 000 seater stadium takes a huge amount of presence and Lynn Baker certainly had that and more. I have no hesitation in recommending Lynn as an Master of Ceremony and Keynote speaker."
