SPEAKING TOPICS are best for Mission-Focused Organizations

  • The Power of Vulnerable Storytelling
  • OWN. SHARE. CONNECT. Create the life you Want
  • Be the Change in the World: Through Forgiveness

An organization that leads to win has 4 distinctive characteristics…

1. Shared Vision that makes a deeper connection

From the executive team to the sales team, each person in the organization knows exactly what they have responsibilities for. They are committed to the mission and understand exactly how their unique role in the organization is essential to its success.

2. Values Based Culture

Integrity, accountability, mutual respect, and teamwork serve as the foundation for all relationships internally with co-workers, and externally with partners and clients.

3. Effective Communication

Leaders listen aggressively and communicate their vision with passion. They promote open communication and connect with the heart and soul of the people they supervise and work with.

4. Train to Win Mindset

Successful leaders command flawless preparation, not flawless execution! They encourage others to expand their capabilities and consistently reward high performers who take calculated risks and ‘push the envelope in order to grow.

Takeaways: Each lesson reveals an insight or revelation which has a practical application in life, career, relationship, goal achievement, success, and fulfillment. The possibilities will inspire audience members to integrate the lessons into their personal and professional lives to show up masterfully.
