Marjorie Brody explains her “See it, solve it, own it, do it" philosophy to her audience. Starting with the first step, she says, “See it. You all know that there's things going on in your organization, you know it, you see it, the question is what are you doing? [If you turn a blind eye] there's no ownership of that."

Moving onto the next step, she says, “The next thing is how are you going to solve it? Ultimately it's all about the execution, everything I talk about today, you're going to say I already know that, but how you do it, that's the key."

Explaining what is necessary for real success, Marjorie says, “[it's all about] behavior. You see, you can be a great performer and still not play well with the kids in the sandbox. And when I look at the work that I do which is coaching senior people, there is so much that is to do with behavior. What happens with behavior? A reputation follows, and our relationships are built on this."


Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


“Motivating!” “Engaging!” “Empowering!” Is this what attendees say following your presentations or events? Or, would they say it was a great opportunity to catch up on their e-mails and texts? The best events have relevant and inspiring speakers, well-organized programming, and meeting leaders who keep the day running smoothly.

When your reputation for a successful meeting is on the line, BRODY’s experienced speakers, emcees and facilitators — led by Hall of Fame speaker Marjorie Brody — can help.

SPEAKING TOPICS:

Personal Branding: Market Your MAGIC
What is a “personal brand” and how can it shape a career? Find out in this Marjorie Brody program that explores how to build a professional reputation that paves the way to opportunity and success. Accountability: Four Keys to Manage Success (Yours & Others)
Doing more with less – it’s the hard reality of today’s business climate. That’s why every single member of your team must be fully engaged and accountable. Getting there isn’t easy, but it can and must be done. This workshop is the “wake up call” your team needs to recharge, recommit, and refocus to get the desired results.

Courageous Coaching: It’s not easy, It’s your job!
Coaching might be the hardest, most awkward, least favorite thing leaders do, but it just might be the most critical. If the majority of your staff is not performing at or close to 100%, it has a ripple effect on your company, clients, and reputation – and, ultimately, your success – or failure. Learning to give coaching feedback isn’t easy, but it’s mandatory if you expect success.

Framework for Leadership: Five Action Steps for Breakthrough Results
If the results you want to achieve seem as far away as the next moon landing, you need to take action — and fast. BRODY’s Framework will open your eyes to a forward-thinking process that is immediately applicable and imminently achievable.
