Interview with Andrew Bryant

Andrew Bryant talks about the topics of leadership and physiotherapy as well as the benefits offered by his keynotes.

What is the message you hope people take away from your presentations?

Leadership starts with you, regardless of your current position, leadership is an inside out process. You are responsible ‘for’ what you think, feel, say and do AND accountable ‘to’ others in terms of the agreements you make. In any situation you have choice as to how you respond, and this choice muscle is build by being clear about responsibility for and accountable to. If you lead others you must influence yourself to influence them. People are influenced when you give them a clear vision of what is possible and are coached to take action to achieve what is good for them and good for the team.


How are your keynotes unique?

As both a Certified Speaking Professional and Professional Certified Coach, I understand how to engage an audience at both a rational and emotional level. I use humor to facilitate the audience to step back from their existing paradigm and be challenged to see things anew. The methodology of Self-leadership is one that I have researched and written about and some of the psychological aspects I share are new to business, but make a significant impact on productivity, sales and culture.


Can you highlight some of the important aspects of successful leadership?

This question is challenging to answer in brief as it depends on the context of leadership and your criteria for success. If we are talking a 21st century global organization, then the signs of successful leadership will be engaged employees who are connected to the purpose of the business and are working in an environment that promotes creativity, innovation and collaboration to achieve results. Successful leaders would therefore be self-aware to be able to inspire people with purpose and coach them to achieve results.


Who or what inspires you most?

I am inspired by seeing people with the courage to honestly look at themselves and make the changes required to get what they want. I am inspired by the possibilities of facilitating a change in culture, whether that is for a small team or the whole company.


How do you combine leadership and physiotherapy?

I started my career as a physiotherapist in the early 80’s. I was working with sports teams and athletes and soon realized that success was as much mental as physical. I studied psychology, NLP, hypnosis, meditation and even Chinese medicine to help my clients get the competitive edge. When I moved to Australia I continued to coach athletes but kept getting asked to coach business people to use their mind to be successful. Because of the impact I was having on performance on and off the field I began to teach and to speak about my approach and my self-leadership methodology.


What is the most amazing experience you have had as a speaker?

Well, apparently size does matter because being able to inspire an audience12,000 people was a real rush for me. And on a smaller, but not less significant note, finding a solution to include a deaf and dumb participant into one of my workshops was amazing because it challenged me to really consider how to communicate my message.
