Transformational Leadership

The Building Blocks to Becoming a Game-Changing Leader

This keynote equips individuals, future leaders, executives, and management teams with innovative ideas and strategies to thrive in today’s ever-changing business world and become a game-changing leader. Matt explores the challenges that leaders face and how to break through the barriers, lead through change, and make a significant impact on your team and organization.

This presentation dives deep into what true leadership really is. True leadership is much more than titles, authority, and recognition.

It’s about equipping those you are leading with the right tools and strategies to not only maximize the success of the organization, but as individuals.

Building a World-Class Team and Culture

A Strong Team Can Carry Your Vision to the End Zone

Matt often talks about how the team and culture within an organization are everything. This high-impact keynote examines how to attract and retain a world-class team, by implementing a clear and attainable culture for all members to buy into.

Matt examines what top performing teams are doing differently to continually win, innovate, and maximize performance in an ever-changing world. Being an athlete for much of his life, and majoring in Sports Management, Matt uses his expertise to teach how success extends far beyond talent. Matt has been on teams that reached the top and teams that didn’t get anywhere. Since moving away from the playing field, he has drawn the parallels to the business arena. He outlines the importance of teamwork and culture, and how the two can carry your vision to the end zone, every single day.

The correlation between top performing athletic teams and top performing corporate teams is nearly identical. Matt teaches invaluable lessons on the competitive advantage of developing the individuals and culture within, and how they can outshine external talent and competition every time. Matt teaches how to create a plan of action that can begin implementation immediately.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to recruit, attract, nurture, and retain a world-class team and culture.
  • Research shows that only 30% of employees in America feel engaged at work. Learn how to drastically increase employee engagement, morale, and retention.
  • Discover why culture is in fact everything, and how to implement a clear and distinct culture that is purpose-driven, attainable, and identifiable in all that you do.
  • Discover the importance of individual, team, and cultural development as an unyielding necessity to the success of your organization.

 

Breakthrough Sales Performance

This dynamic keynote is guaranteed to challenge, educate, and provide sales professionals with the tools and strategies that will revolutionize breakthrough sales performance.

Much like athletics, sales professionals must be competitive if they want to survive. Soliciting business, generating leads, closing sales, and reaching quotas is the name of the game. Much like athletics, breakthrough sales are a constant battle. They both require a relentless desire to work on their craft, know their competition, and elevate their game every single day. They both demand an enormous amount of preparation in order to perform at the highest level.

Being a great salesman or woman is not about closing a lot of sales. It’s about listening to the customer, the market, and knowing how to create value where it’s needed. It’s about creating relationships and nurturing them. Breakthrough sales do not allow any room for ego. You will be told “No” more than you will be told “Yes.” You must learn how to face daily adversity and setbacks, head-on. Matt teaches how to create a mindset shift that instead channels these obstacles as the catalyst for breakthrough growth.

The outcome of this keynote will be sales professionals who will understand how to create value, increase sales, build relationships, stand out from the competition, and surpass quotas.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discover how to capitalize off of rejection and let it inspire you instead of discourage you.
  • Find out three unique qualities that will begin to create breakthrough sales performance immediately.
  • Learn the importance of rituals and routines and how to create your own for optimal daily performance.
  • Discover one mental shift that all sales professionals must commit to in order to achieve breakthrough performance.
  • Learn how to nurture relationships that turn into lifelong customers
