Creating and maintaining a positive corporate culture
This is a keynote on how to create a company where the culture is warm, inviting, exciting and fun. As John Maxwell writes, "People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care." People don't work for companies, they work for other people. Whether you manage one person or 10,000, this keynote address will give you ideas and tools to improve your corporate culture forever. Most people don't leave their jobs because of money. They leave because of who they work for and the corporate culture they work in.

Time and priority management
This keynote is focused on what you should be doing with your time and what someone else should be doing on your behalf. We will analyze the value of your time and what you want to do with your time. We will spend time on the "100% question" which is, "if you could spend 100% of your time doing what brings the most value and revenue to your business and what you enjoy doing most in your business, how much happier, productive and successful would you be?." The audience will leave with clear and practical tools that will enable them to separate the tasks they perform from the tasks that will or should be performed by others. We will also discuss implementation and maintenance of these activities.
Life Planning day
This is an all day session on helping people write a Life Plan (a business plan for their lives). The event will begin with an hour + of movies clips, music and material that will move the attendees into an emotional and intellectual state so they will be ready to write their Life Plan. The Life Plan is a journal that is private and for them and only them. Their process will consist of:
a. Identifying the 6-10 most important areas of their lives (spouse, kids, career, health, religion, hobbies, etc…).
b. Assessing each account. What is working well, what is not working well and what could use some improvement. This requires the attendee to be honest with themselves about each area/account of their life.
c. Writing about the “purpose” of each account or why that person or thing is important to the attendee.
d. Where they envision that area to be in 1, 5, 10 and 20 years. This is a detailed description of where they ideally want that account to be in of those time periods.
e. A series of actions plans for each account detailing specifically how the attendee is going to get the account from where it is now to where they ideally want it to be.
The Life Planning day is a full day commitment but it can be life changing.
