Chris Helder, Communication Expert: Keynote Demo


Chris Helder introduces the concept of "useful belief," a tool he believes can change the way you lead your life and the results you get. Rather than "positive thinking," he urges people to think about what kind of future they want to create and then ensure that their thoughts or attitudes contribute to making that vision or goal a reality.

He offers several relatable examples, one of which is a common complaint circulating among parents about "kids today." A father of three boys, Chris explains that when someone brings up "the challenges" of raising a family in the 21st century, he declares, "Well I think it's the greatest time in the world to be a kid, and I think it's the greatest time in the world to be a dad." Letting us glimpse into his psyche, he explains that it doesn't matter whether or not those statements are "true"; the fact that he believes them actually makes him a better dad, because those thoughts help him stay "present and locked in."

Useful Belief... Because it's better than Positive Thinking
This presentation is a game changer in the field of motivation and performance. For years, people have been told to try and be “positive”. The reality is that when most people try this they are unable to sustain it and end up feeling worse than when they started out.

This is a presentation about “action”. It is not about being “positive”, but rather asking questions of yourself such as, “What is the most useful thing to believe about this situation?” and “What is the most useful thing that I could do today to get me closer to where I want to be?” Positive thinking is about a feeling, while Useful Belief is all about “action”.

This presentation will help participants to:

  • Alter the approach and be more effective when tackling tasks
  • Give a new framework to help improve the focus of your time and energy
  • Improve your approach to make practical decisions in the workplace

    Useful Belief
    Positive thinking has had its time — the new way of overcoming life's challenges is USEFUL BELIEF.

    Useful Belief turns the "be positive" industry upside down with a fresh and modern approach to achievement. Sometimes things in life are not positive. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. If you've had a nightmare of a year, the last thing you want to hear is "Be positive!" Instead, you need an actual strategy to dig yourself out, and a truly useful guidebook to show you where to go next. This is that guidebook.

    Through the engaging tale of a business traveller and the three significant encounters on his journey, this book takes you on a journey of your own — to self awareness, and an improved approach to business, parenting and relationships. You'll learn how thinking "useful" is better than thinking "positive", and you'll uncover the utility of your past, present and future challenges. You'll undergo a major shift in the way you solve your problems, and you'll learn how to navigate your way out of ambiguity and toward success.


    The Ultimate Book of Influence
    Master the power of influence and persuasion to achieve more in work and life

    For business leaders and managers, as well as those who work in sales, the power of influence can be a potent advantage. The ability to persuade others based on what you know about them is the first step to convincing someone to buy your product or buy into your business vision. In The Ultimate Book of Influence, author Chris Helder—a master of communication and one of Australia’s most sought after speakers on influence—shares ten essential tools that will enable you to influence others so you win the sale or seal the deal.

    The tools in this book will show you how to read body language, uncover what’s most important to a client, convince others to take action, understand the four essential types of people at your workplace, and much more.
