THE POWER OF

CHICE

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
IN LEADERSHIP AND SALES

20 years of corporate experience distilled into ONE multinational keynote speaker presenting professionally around the world for 15+ years

WATCH SYLVIE IN ACTION

A HIGH-PERFORMING COMPANY IS A SERIES OF

RIGHT DECISIONS MADE BY EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE.

GIVE YOUR WORKFORCe the POWER OF CHOICE!

But when emotions drive decision-making, even extraordinary people can make costly mistakes that cut sales revenue, damage public perception, undermine confidence in leadership, hurt morale, and stall productivity.

With hundreds of decisions needing to be made every day, how do companies help their employees make the right decisions? 

RIGHT DECISIONS FOLLOW RIGHT PERCEPTIONS.

Self-awareness, self-control, clarity, understanding, compassion, coolness under pressure, a positive outlook…

These qualities help to ensure the best possible outcomes in customer interactions, employee relations, and negotiations, and they are available to every employee in your organization.

Through the cultivation of emotional intelligence that starts with how we perceive our customers, our fellow employees, and ourselves, we can interrupt unconscious thought patterns that interfere with good decision-making and choose the behaviors that secure our most favorable and most desired outcomes

UNDERSTAND PERCEPTIONS.

CHOOSE BEHAVIORS.

DETERMINE OUTCOMES.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER, AUTHOR, MOM

BUT CAN YOU REALLY TEACH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE?

IT SEEMS SO ABSTRACT.

Having spent more than 20 years leading training events in the retail, tourism, and management-consulting industries and 15 years delivering keynotes to corporations, government agencies, nonprofits, and associations on the importance of managing perceptions in the workplace, Sylvie di Giusto knows that Emotional Intelligence is the most powerful lens through which to understand how we perceive ourselves and others and how others perceive us. Through the understanding of what she describes as the five cornerstones of emotional intelligence

employees can consistently and predictably make the right decisions that create the world-class customer relationships and collaborative team dynamics that grow brands and bottom lines.

Sylvie has that rare ability to make the abstract concrete and the unconscious conscious through keynotes that are near spectacles—incorporating the latest technologies and interactive methodologies that capture audiences’ hearts and minds to deliver the powerful precepts that transform both corporate cultures and lives.

Emotional intelligence has played a very practical role in Sylvie’s own life as a businesswoman, wife, and mother, who has relied on emotional intelligence to help her consistently make right decisions for her and her family—most importantly, her decision to give up a successful corporate career in Europe to fulfill her lifelong dream of living in the United States.

Her audiences respond to the sincerity, warmth, and conviction that Sylvie brings to every keynote with stories from her own life and career that illustrate key points from her talks, making enormous assembly halls feel intimate, and making each participant feel that Sylvie is speaking directly to their own individual challenges and giving them the practical takeaways to meet those challenges with confidence in their capacity for right decision-making.

You can help to ensure that your leaders, team members, and customer-facing employees make the right decisions in their work relationships, negotiations, and customer interactions, through Sylvie’s one-of-a-kind presentations on the emotional intelligence that gives them the power of choice—

THE POWER TO CHOOSE TO BE SERVED
RATHER THAN swayed BY THEIR EMOTIONS

 and to choose the perceptions and behaviors that lead to the most favorable and most desirable outcomes for your organization.

HOW LEADERS PACKAGE THEMSELVES
TO STAND OUT FOR THE
RIGHT REASONS.

The Image of Leadership is the result of Sylvie’s journey through two career paths: one as a human resources professional and the other as a personal branding expert. The title reflects the reality that everyone should acknowledge: true leadership manifests itself in ways that are both seen and unseen. This book will take you step-by-step through the development of your professional imprint. The focus will be on what people perceive about you—with an emphasis on your appearance and image. It is written to be concise, easy to read, and entertaining for leaders at all levels.

LEVERAGE YOUR UNIQUE SELLING POINTS
FOR CAREER, BUSINESS, AND LIFE

Sylvie di Giusto, Discover your fair advantage, first impressions

Fierce competition marks the professional and business world. As an individual, it is crucial to break away from the sea of sameness by leveraging your points of differentiation. Difference means offering something that no one else does. Difference means creating your own brand and not copying someone else’s. Difference means positioning yourself in a way that makes others notice you instantly. Difference means making decision-makers stop, think, and want more of you. Difference means you have identified your points of differentiation and found ways to leverage them for your work, business, or life. This is your fair advantage.
