Elevate – How Lifting Others Lifts You – At Work, At Home, And In Life
Imagine each day we get into an elevator, and our attitude and actions determine which floor we get out. Some days, we might not make it past the lower basement levels. Other days, we enjoy million dollar views from the penthouse suite or the infinity pool on the rooftop.
We all have team members, family members, clients, students, or someone in our lives that we wish we could motivate, help, or move to the next level. Sometimes it’s ourselves! How do we get the best out of the people around us – in our workplace, in our family, or even in our own personal lives?
Using the latest cutting-edge, evidence-based science of positive psychology, Dr Justin
Coulson, one of Australia’s leading wellbeing and relationships experts shows how easy it
can be to take our own lives to the next level… by elevating those around us.
Those who attend Elevate will:
- Discover central strategies for successfully lifting those around them to higher levels from the latest research in Positive Psychology
- Identify critical drivers of trusting relationships that will have massive impact in every facet of their lives – at work, at home, and personally.

Because the presentation will:

Force Creates Resistance
What do you do when you are handed poop fresh from the nappy by a two-year- old? How do you handle being metaphorically handed the same thing from challenging adolescents determined to live their own lives? While our colleagues, our clients, our teams, or our students don’t exactly hand us their crap, the challenges they dish up to us can sometimes leave us wondering whether we are managing adults… or children.
As a father of six children, Dr Justin Coulson – one of Australia’s leading parenting experts – has seen it all. Justin has guided parents through thick and thin, and discovered that parenting provides powerful lessons in life and leadership.
In this presentation, Dr Justin Coulson unpacks lessons in life and leadership through the lens of a parent. But make no mistake; these are powerful principles that can change relationships in fundamental and significant ways.
Those who attend will:
- Discover groundbreaking principles from the science of relationships that helps us to get relationships right – every time
- Move past the vicious circle of conflict in constructive, positive ways without alienating clients, colleagues, students, or loved ones
- Develop powerful, personal strategies for building trust
- Unpack the secret to getting things done when relationships are at an impasse, and
- Learn how creating a ‘trust triangle’ will lead to more influence in relationships that matter most
Because the presentation will:
- Focus participants on cutting edge, evidence-based scientific principles
- Be grounded in real life, with real examples of people who have gotten it right in relationships, and people who have gotten it wrong
- Speak in language that makes sense, with stories and research combined in an engaging, interactive, and fun style, and
Offer easy-to-implement suggestions for changing relationships for the better RIGHT NOW.

4 Steps to Enormous Emotional Intelligence
Emotions matter more than we know. They affect memory, learning, and attention. They impact on motivation, the decisions we make, and even the performance appraisals and grades we give. Emotions influence our relationships, and our physical and mental health. They shape our everyday effectiveness and can alter our lives.
But emotions are poorly misunderstood, especially at work and in the classroom. When emotions surface in our work teams or with our students, they are routinely ignored, or worse, shut down.
Research shows that raising our EQ – our emotional intelligence – can have an instant impact on relationships, behaviours, a sense of team and unity, and even achievement and wellbeing. The trick, it seems, is learning how to recognise and respond to emotions in ways that help, rather than hurt.
This presentation shares:
1. The theory and practice of being emotionally intelligent
Research shows that people perform or learn better when they feel secure in their relationships with managers, colleagues, clients, or students. And leaders and teachers who are emotionally intelligent can provide that security. We’ll step through the four key aspects of emotional intelligence, with plenty of time to learn the theory and practice the formula.
2. How emotional intelligence changes how we respond to bullies
It’s ironic that the typical way we respond to bullies is to become bullies ourselves. We systematically use our power to persistently and repeatedly treat them negatively – often to ‘teach them a lesson’, just like bullies! Studies are clearly demonstrating that this is neither effective, nor is it emotionally intelligent. Participants will discover emotionally intelligent ways to respond to bullying and other challenges in ways that work to really change behaviour.
3. How to manage others without resorting to yelling, threats, and bribes
The ‘old school’ management style is no longer effective. Power no longer elicits the same compliance it once may have. Bribes and threats, rewards and punishments, only ‘work’ in the short-term (if at all). The real purpose of any kind of discipline should be to create a positive learning environment where our employees or students can focus on the task at hand, feel comfortable and secure, and achieve amazing results.
This presentation will provide leaders and teachers with effective strategies for developing their emotional intelligence (or EQ), to get the best from themselves and from those around them.
