Human Behavior Expert and Hall of Fame Keynote Speaker

Colette Carlson, CSP, CPAE

People don’t connect with who you THINK you are. They connect with the IMPACT you have on them whether that takes place virtually or in person. In a world filled with uncertainty, technology, and constant change, use the Power of Connection to:

  • Increase sales and collaboration
  • Decrease stress and conflict
  • Maximize relationships, revenue and results

At the heart of every sale, every interaction between a leader and a team member, every conversation with a customer… is a connection. How to make those connections effective, and leverage them for greater success, is the thread woven into every one of Colette’s interactive, engaging presentations, whether onstage or online.

Many Communicate, Few Connect.

Her seminars are so personalized, attendees often assume Colette is one of them. She has the outstanding ability to connect emotionally through captivating content, laugh-out-loud humor, and extensive customization.

With a master’s in human behavior and twenty years of experience helping individuals change behaviors that impact their success, Colette understands the psychology, mindset and skills required to thrive during times of uncertainty, ambiguity and stress. She excels at developing leaders’ social-emotional intelligence creating empathetic, inclusive environments where teams flourish.
