Following this highly interactive and fun session, audiences will learn peak performance leadership tools based on 4 key concepts:
Shared Vision Each and every wingman in your organization must know exactly what they are fighting for. They must be committed to the mission, and understand exactly how their unique role in the organization is essential to its success.
Values-Based Culture Integrity, accountability, mutual respect, and teamwork must serve as the foundation for all relationships between employees, and with partners and clients as well.
Effective Communication Leaders listen aggressively and communicate their vision with passion. They promote open communication and connect with the heart and soul of their wingmen.
Train to Win Mindset Successful leaders command flawless preparation, not flawless execution. They encourage their wingmen to expand their capabilities, and consistently reward high performers who take calculated risks and ‘1push the envelope’ in order to grow.
