Gutsy Leadership
How to Lead Courageously in a Fast Paced World

We live in an age of extreme uncertainty and ever changing conditions. It is more and more challenging to manage all of the demands that are coming at us at a faster and faster pace. Building a high performance team with healthy in-house competition and continuous development are leadership necessities of today’s leader.  

As the President of a real estate development company, Cary leads a team of over 300 people. He understands today’s competitive marketplace and the challenges of top leaders and sales teams. 

It takes real courage to stand firm in what you believe in and then lunge forward to your vision. As leaders we need to execute not just naturally, but optimally. Gutsy Leadership is the key element in that process.

Participants will learn:

  • How to retrain your teams to accelerate optimal performance and execution
  • The 4 natural reactions to fear and how they can hinder performance
  • One powerful break through that immediately gives even seasoned leaders permission to lead with more confidence
  • The 5 leadership phases to lead your team with guaranteed continuous improvement 

 

Lunging Forward

In today’s extreme conditions fear, doubt and uncertainty are paralyzing people’s power, both professionally and personally. As outlined in Cary Mullen’s book, HOW to WIN - Achieving Your Goals in Extreme Conditions, your attendees will discover the important distinction between the two kinds of fear we all experience. They will learn the four reactions to fear and which ones they are over or under using. Through the IDLE formula and Lunge Forward Approach, Mullen shows attendees how reduce their stress, overcome their fears and improve their execution in the following areas:

  • Blasting out of their comfort zone
  • Taking on change
  • Making the tough decisions
  • Holding team members accountable

Sales people are liberated and motivated; leaders are empowered and inspired; staff are energized and engaged

Innovation

One way or another, individuals who consistently achieve the best results have the courage to innovate even when it is very uncomfortable. On a shoestring budget and a finite amount of time to innovate and implement something new, Cary Mullen carved his way into the record books by using measurement, innovation and the 5 Winning Secrets™. This presentation addresses two challenges facing leaders and top producers in any industry:

  • Identifying your brightest techniques…those places where you are brilliant
  • Recognizing the industry paradigms or the status quos that may be holding you back from innovating.

Mullen shares how to identify and measure your brilliance, how to breakthrough what seems ‘logical’ to the industry and innovate new approaches, even if they might seem crazy to others.


Team Captain Leadership

Thriving in extreme conditions, building stronger relationships and increasing your team’s performance are the leadership hallmarks of a Team Captain. During this presentation, Cary Mullen shares the 5 skills of world class leaders: Focus, Execution, Adaptability, Teamwork and Self-Improvement. He shares insights on how leaders can improve each of these skills personally and in their team.

Mullen’s five part learning cycle provides a map for leading each of your team members to new heights and new result - discover:

  • How to work and lead at the same time…like a Team Captain.
  • How to crystallize intention while maintaining attention.
  • How to customize your leadership to the situation and the team member.
  • 10 types of visualization garnered from sport that apply to leadership and business.
  • The 1 leadership attribute that inspires teams, especially in extreme conditions.

ISD of HSBC Financial

Cary’s presentation was fantastic! The audience loved it and definitely carried the message all the way through the remainder of the conference which was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you so much for all of your help and for securing Cary! Thanks for the instructions below. I have provided to the audience members today so you should be getting some responses in shortly! Again thank you so much!

Orange Capital Management of First Allied Securities, Inc.

Thank you very much for your incredible presentation at the First Allied conference in San Diego. Your story and teachings from your life were amazingly spot-on for our business. I could go on for an hour on how you weaved your ski story to our business strategy shortcomings and victories. And then to finish with your red ski boot was the best!! Again thank you for a memorable moment that will stay with me personally and professionally for a very, very long time. We recapped the FASI conference with our 15 guys last Friday. I explained to the guys who missed Cary how: 1) if you are an expert at something make sure you review and improve (perfecting the worst way to jump), 2) after you identify the improvement do not quit the new way of doing business because It’s uncomfortable (80% of the guys went back to the old way of jumping) and 3) stick to the new way of doing business no matter how hard or difficult things appear (the picture of Cary’s jump when he broke the record). And most importantly, when you are scared or uncomfortable – lunge forward!!

North Central of SimplexGrinnell, A Tyco International Company

Brad Heckert and I would like to thank you for addressing our sales team this past week. The team spoke about you the rest of the week…and a number of them have identified “lunge forward” as something they are going to do when they return back to their offices. The team was inspired by the stories you shared and I believe will be able to see things differently based on their engagement with you
