DEFINING MOMENT LEADERSHIP- “STRATEGIES AND TOOLS FOR MOVING TO THE NEXT LEVEL”
Each of us can remember a turning point experience: a defining moment in life and business where everything changed on a dime. People, experiences, adversity, and coincidences serve as catalyst for these life-changing events.
In this session you will discover strategies and tools for moving to the next level and preparing yourself and others for those critical defining moments in business and life. One of the great tragedies in life is to have destiny knock at the door and be unprepared to open it. There may be no greater reward for a leader than that of coaching another through a defining moment, a breakthrough, or helping someone move to the next level of performance.
This session concludes by allowing members of the audience to volunteer a defining moment story. This time of compelling stories is a powerful catalyst to building trust and respect among the team. (optional)
THE LINKS TO EXCELLENCE- CORPORATE GOLF OUTING
"Building Relationships, Leadership, and Enhancing Job Performance Through Action Learning"
An Executive Development and Action Learning Adventure
The purpose of this corporate outing is to provide a unique venue for performance enhancement training as well as building teams within an organization or building lasting relationships with strategic clients. During the course of this program relationships will be enhanced, leadership skills of each participant will be honed, and new performance enhancement strategies will be learned and employed. Our unique delivery model incorporates a cutting edge seminar followed by a comprehensive “action-learning” component and culminates with a follow-up debriefing session which ties the day's activities to the real world of business. The action learning component revolves around a uniquely crafted golf adventure which requires team work, crisis and pressure management, mental toughness, creativity, strategic planning, and shared leadership to navigate successfully. This powerful training tool is used to mirror the corporate arena thus providing a solid application experience for the day's learning.
Your employees or most valued clients will receive a meaningful and impactful gift in the form of performance enhancement training along with a team building experience, both of which will serve to enhance your bottom line while building relationships. Bonds are built when individuals engage in experiences, which are unique, competitive, challenging, fun, and productive. We have built this program upon that model.
The Components of the Outing:
The Performance Seminar: The day begins with a seminar entitled Mindset of a Champion: Reaching Your Potential in a World of Constant Change. This unique seminar incorporates illustrations and performance strategies from several of the world's greatest performers and leaders. It has great relevance to the corporate playing field and has been delivered to many Fortune 500 companies including Exxon/Mobil, Southwest Airlines, HP/Compaq, Texas Instruments, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Bayer Corp., State Farm, StorageTek, U.S. Filter, American Express, and others. The program is led by Dr. David Cook, one of the nation's top sport and performance psychology consultants and speakers.
The Strategic Planning Session: The Mindset of a Champion seminar leads into the initial team building activity, which features a strategic planning and practice session. The rules of the Mission Impossible golf adventure are distributed allowing each team to evaluate its potential through a “hands-on” trial and error session. Our teaching staff will be available to help beginners and others who want to hone their games for the round. This practice session culminates in each team submitting a sealed performance bid for the upcoming challenge. This bid process forms the basis for the day's competition and provides a bridge to the real world of business.
The Action Learning Challenge: The stage has now been set for Mission Impossible: The Ultimate Team Building Golf Challenge. This uniquely crafted action learning experience requires team work, crisis and pressure management, mental toughness, creativity, strategic planning, and shared leadership, all of which are critical elements to success in the corporate arena. While this experience revolves around normal golf new elements are integrated into each hole requiring team members to "think out of the box" to accomplish the mission. To compete successfully each team must call upon the principles taught during the morning's seminar. (It is assumed that most individuals have played golf, however those with little or no previous golfing experience will be able to participate and contribute in this format.
