"Fearless Leadership"… focus on leaders being Courageous and Fearless while making tough decisions and taking responsibility for them. When times are tough how do we lead? What are the key qualities we need to demonstrate to effectively lead and inspire those we lead? When the pressure mounts are you the kind of leader people will follow?

"Running Around The Wedge"…..emphasis on being a loyal and committed team member. Are you a person your team members can count on? Will you take responsibility or blame others and take the easy way out? Do we serve both the internal and external customer or focus on ourselves and our own agenda? How can we put together teams where everyone is engaged and feels valued?

"Increasing Human Effectiveness"….personal development insights and tools to assist individuals realize more of their potential, increase their awareness, overcome limiting habits and attitudes, manage change, clarify values and set goals, and build self esteem in themselves and others. Using these tools and insights they will have more success both personally and professionally.

"Leading with Purpose"…..a practical look at the real qualities of high performance leaders. Qualities of being Authentic, Vulnerable, Present, and Courageous will be outlined. It will be demonstrated how these qualities need to be present to build sustainable, healthy and productive relationships with those you ask to follow. Plus we’ll explore Problem Solving, Prioritizing, People Development, and Vision. These four disciplines properly applied will ensure your efforts are effective in helping you lead your people and your organization with integrity and dignity.

"7 Keys to Dynamic Growth"…What are the real keys to organizational and individual growth. This is a highly customized message based on the clients needs. If it is a leadership group the keys will be different than if it’s a sales group etc. Concepts and ideas from the above messages may be woven into this message so the audience is both inspired and challenged to better lead and grow themselves and their organizations.

"Moving to Great"…How do you get to the next level? You may be in a "rut" or you may be doing incredible. But the pressure from all around you demands that you "up" your game. You can’t rest on your past successes and the good ole’ days are gone forever. You don’t want to be left behind. Where do you get the energy and the strategies to move to the next level with the competition and the stress increasing? Some of the limitations you identify may even be mental and self-imposed. How do I get of my own way and move forward?

"Leading in the New Reality"…Leading has never been easy. But it’s never been more challenging than it is today in this “New Normal” or “New Reality”. The customer has never been more demanding, the competition never stiffer, employees less engaged, and change and technology advances only getting faster. Plus, despite all these demands, many leaders are being asked to accomplish more with less.
