Be That Leader

Ever see a leader that everyone is clamoring to work for? Her teams love her and will stop a speeding bullet or go through a fire for her. He’s the leader people really want to hang out with at the company holiday party or happy hour.

Ever wonder what their secret sauce is and where you can get a bottle for yourself?

Get your secret sauce to leadership in this session with Kevin. Walk away with the secrets he’s developed over decades of leading in some of the largest companies in the country.

 In this high-powered and engaging presentation you'll discover the 5 keys to:

  • Drive sales and productivity through the roof!
  • Build trusted relationships with peers, partners and stakeholders
  • Make the switch from managing to coaching and driving quantifiable results


Get Your Groove

You ever look at your peer across the hall or in the other division and wonder "What is she doing that I'm not?"  Everything she touches just turns to gold... No. Scratch that.  Platinum!  Her world is a "total package."  She's knocking her business out of the park and climbing quickly, beautiful family at home and walks around like, "I'm on top of the world."  She makes it look so easy.

Ever wonder, "How in the world does she do it?"  And more importantly, "How can I?"

You'll have the 5 key steps to:

  • Develop the plan to drive purpose in your life
  • Experience unprecedented growth by initiating and driving new opportunities in your business and in your life
  • Gain the clarity of purpose to identify where to focus your efforts to maximize your impact


The Millennials Are Coming! The Millennials Are Coming!

How to get the most out of everyone in a generationally diverse workplace.

A recent Gallup Study reported 70% of the US workforce is disengaged.  Additionally, by 2025 75% of the US workforce will be Millennials.  They bring with them never before seen desired approaches to work and work-life integration (notice I didn’t say “work-life balance.”)  Organizations are working diligently to onboard Millennials without disrupting the existing milieu.  This keynote or training session delves into the differences and provides the approach that leverages the talents and desires of all employees in a focused fashion, providing a system for driving engagement to get greater loyalty, better customer satisfaction and reduced attrition.


Are You Living Your Best You?

Helping people find passion and purpose, drive productivity and increased profitability.

When people are in love with what they do, going the extra mile becomes business as usual.  Get increased profitability without increased expense.  This session provides the strategy for creating goals for your entire life.  We focus on distinct areas of life; the five key areas to live YOUR BEST YOU.  We visit quickly where you are but more importantly a strategy for getting to where you want to be professionally and personally, driving increased engagement as people get to enhance their entire selves.


Elevate Your Vision!

How to dream big, see where you want to be and get there.

Denis Waitley is credited with saying, “It’s not who you are that holds you back.  It’s who you think you’re not.”  In this session, we start dreaming and start living who we want to be; who we’re destined to be!  We change our mindset and see ourselves as we are supposed to be.  We understand why we hold ourselves back and stop letting fear stop us in our tracks with employable strategies for enhancement.
