Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks With An Attitude Of Excellence!

In this dynamite, specially designed program, Willie combines key principles from his new books, “An Attitude of Excellence” and “Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks.” We have had great success in helping many organizations boost their sales. Willie has been helping "fire up" sales teams with motivation and encouragement of hope during this economically challenging time.
 
How To Be Unstoppable! Leadership & Achievement!

Willie Jolley believes leadership is an action not a position! He reminds us that great leaders always focus on the possibilities rather than the challenges! Great leaders are willing to do whatever is necessary rather than doing what is comfortable! And leaders look to develop more leaders rather than more followers!
 
How To Turn Your Setbacks into Comebacks

Taken from his popular television special, Turning Setbacks into Comebacks, Willie Jolley explains how in these times of uncertainty, high anxiety and fear for financial security, we can survive, and dare we think, thrive!
 
Change IS GOOD…When Your Attitude is GREAT!

“The best way to build your future is to build yourself. And the best way to build your organization is to build your people.” Willie Jolley

In this program, the audience is sold on the positive perspective of change! Change is essential to any growth process. Everybody wants progress, but nobody wants to change!
 

New Haven Hospital

"On behalf of our entire management team at Yale-New Haven Hospital, I'd like to thank you for joining us for our meeting in Monroe, CT last week. "Your message was elegantly delivered and inspiring. A special thanks for agreeing to come at the last minute after Keith Harrell found he could not travel. To do that was a sign of great friendship and commitment to Keith; to do it on your 25th anniversary was even more remarkable! Thank you for making our management meeting such a success!"

USASOC

"Your presentation at the USASOC Family Forum was both motivational and inspirational for our attendees. Evaluation results provided by the forum attendees gave your performance high marks! You added that "special something" that we wanted to provide to our families and staff. We appreciate the wonderful job you did. You left us with something positive to think about!"

Raytheon Corporation

"I wanted to thank for your involvement in our face to fact meeting this week. Willie's speech was very well received to the point that a number of the team either referred back to it over the course of our meeting to emphasize a point or rally around an idea. I think everyone thought that it was a great investment of our time and helped get the team aligned for the tough conversations we needed to have around organization and team work. So again, THANK YOU for your very positive message and we look forward to working with you again in the near future!"
