Becoming A Category Of One: Simplify - Focus - Execute  

How Effective Leaders Create And Sustain Organizational Success

What can leaders do to make a great company even better? In this dynamic session, Joe works with leaders on key ideas and strategies used by market-leading companies to sustain and grow organizational success. These include: innovate continuously, simplify, get clarity on what is most important, focus on high return activities, and execute with consistency and excellence. 

“A core responsibility of leadership today is to simplify the complicated.”

The price we pay for making things too complicated is immeasurable. It slows us down, makes for bad decisions, and scatters our efforts. When you simplify inside the organization, you create clarity, which is the key to igniting the incredible power of focus. Market leaders, innovators, and disruptors make things easier to understand, use, access, and buy.

“The ultimate purpose of strategy is to create an intense focus on the few things that matter most.”

High-performance leaders harness the productive power of a total team focus on what matters most. Focus is the force multiplier that turns potential into results. Clear leadership means understanding the difference between distractions and true opportunities.

“Leaders drive results with a culture of consistent execution on high return activities.”

People in under-performing companies will tell you that they have a thousand things to do each day. Top performers will tell you that they have a handful of things that they must do each day and that they must be done with consistency and excellence. Know what your high priority activities are and say “no” to the activities that dilute your results.

This is an interactive session for leaders in successful organizations who want to sustain, build on, and grow that success. 


MAGNETIC: Winning And Keeping Customers For Life

How do market leaders attract customers, keep those customers for life, and create a never-ending stream of new customers?  Learn how to create a simple strategy that everyone in your organization can use every single day to generate customer satisfaction and grow the business.

“Personal recommendations – word-of-mouth – are the number one driver of purchase decisions.” – Forbes Magazine

This session gives you simple, powerful, actionable strategies that you can implement immediately.  These are ideas that fire people up and motivate them to go back and take immediate action to improve performance and results with customers.

You will learn and take back…

  • How to get clarity on maximizing customer satisfaction.
  • How to use a fundamental business attraction strategy throughout the entire organization.
  • How to get everyone focused on what matters most to customers.
  • How to “filter” your choices and activities so that you always achieve maximum positive impact with customers.
  • How to use simple, powerful "tie-breakers” to make all the difference in performance and results.  

Magnetic: Winning And Keeping Customers For Life is not a “lecture” with mind-numbing powerpoint. This is a dynamic, interactive program – a motivating, thought-provoking exchange of ideas that will give your people a renewed energy and enthusiasm for doing those things that get your customers to help you grow your business.


Do what the best companies in the world - large and small - do to not only create, but sustain success in the marketplace.  Be intentional, strategic, and tactically focused on knowing exactly what to do that will make you a magnet for new business.
