Something Personal...

My interests include sprinting to keep up with my work-out-aholic wife, doing anything adventurous with our three incredible children, compelling conversations with friends over good wine, and a periodic mental lapse into skydiving. I grew up as a competitive snow skier and water skier. I never won a World Cup, but in both sports I’ve skied with the best in the world. These gifted athletes taught me how to step through fear and adapt to ever-changing competitors, conditions, technologies and geographies. I have learned that if you take enough risks, eventually you will crash. But that’s how you grow. It’s also how you strengthen resilience and develop the ability to bounce back. Most of all, I learned that success is never final. I’m still chasing the best in the world, still learning and still getting better.

Bochy Ball! The Chemistry of Winning and Losing in Baseball, Business, and Life.

Business leaders can draw from the insights and apply the wisdom that turned the failing San Francisco Giant's franchise into a $2B force, with 3 World Championship titles in 5 years.

You do NOT have to be a baseball fan or sports addict to learn from Bochy Ball. You do have to be a person who wants to borrow from what great leadership looks like in the best and worst of times! How does that translate to today's business leaders?

The Giant's success is based on clubhouse culture, team chemistry, and a championship mindset, all things every business can gain from. Top CEO's understand that an intentional approach to company culture and a willingness to nurture a "champion's mindset" in each of their employees is vital to their organization's success. Whether you want to...

  • Reinforce a Major Initiative
  • Stretch People's Thinking
  • Build More Team Chemistry
  • Establish a Business Case for Change
  • Coach People to Perform at their Very Best, or
  • Inspire a Higher Level of Leadership

You will get a highly customized keynote, that wraps countless lessons from Bochy Ball around your team's performance goals and your meeting objectives.
