“Full-Throttle Leadership: Passion, Power and Purpose!”

“If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand!”

*This popular saying in the Harley-Davidson motorcycle community expresses the challenge Bikers have explaining their passion for riding to those who don’t appreciate their shared experience. Every Biker instinctively values the choices they make and the roads they take when riding together. They get “IT.”

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said when it comes to leadership.

What should be a clear destination choice; getting a team of people focused on a common purpose, managing change, fueling success and maintaining balance, often ends up in a heap of twisted perspectives and ruined expectation. Just as great leadership can fuel amazing accomplishments, failed leadership can wreck businesses, damage reputations and ruin relationships with devastating impact.

Steven G. Foster CMP, CTA is a nationally-known Veterans Advocate, a Harley-Davidson LIFE Member and an award-winning speaker and writer on Team Success who understands your leadership outlook always determines your team outcome. Great leaders listen, serve the team and help others get where they want to go. When tasked with developing talent, improving performance, creating value or mentoring the next generation in your succession pipeline; it’s critical to deliver the leadership “IT” to everyone on the ride with you.

In 2013, Steven completed a solo motorcycle ride around the perimeter of the United States - a 32-day, 34-state, 13,000-mile journey dedicated to raising awareness and support for veterans, active-duty military and their families. All across America he met people who shared their stories of leadership service and sacrifice; providing inspiration through challenging days riding alone through torrential rain, scorching heat and even a mountain wildfire. By aligning Passion, Power & Purpose to run wide-open in service to others, Steven has found a profound and lasting team success model he calls “Full-Throttle Leadership.”

Learning Outcomes:

• Passion: Building Team Capability to make decisions and solve problems • Power: Identifying capabilities, conditions and environment to shape team success • Purpose: Modeling leadership through actions, behaviors and processes* • Success: Know the Way, Go the Way, Show the Way!

“FULL-THROTTLE GOODNESS” FUELING A “PASSION-POWER-PURPOSE” RIDE TO GIVE BACK AND CHANGE THE WORLD

What’s your Route to Stand Out?

Thomas Edison said it best; “If we did ALL the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” And not just that, we would change ourselves and change the world. That includes the Business world.

We all agree that giving back will makes us feel better, but when trying to link what we do from the heart and make the business case for its value to the bottom line; the route gets fuzzy. The secret to fueling a satisfying and significant professional life is realizing the many powerful opportunities organizations have to align our passion with a purpose to serve others AND build a successful business. Some people believe that is a hopelessly idealistic outlook. Steven Foster is not one of them.

An award-winning speaker, entrepreneur and writer profiled by CNN/Fortune as a Small Business Success, Steven has always believed in going “Full-Throttle;” not surprising considering he also is a Harley-Davidson LIFE member, who in 2013 completed a solo motorcycle ride around the perimeter of the United States - a 32-day, 34-state, 13,000-mile journey dedicated to raising awareness and support for veterans, active-duty military and their families.

“Full-Throttle Goodness” focuses on ways businesses can influence loyalty, increase brand awareness and create meaningful engagement for both its employees and customers. Giving Back to the communities where we live, work and meet is the fuel that powers business growth. Purpose-filled work is not just another route to discovering a satisfying life; it’s a Full-Throttle Guarantee that makes Good Business Sense..

Learning Outcomes:

• Identify the impact of giving back to your business’ growth and employee development • Develop processes to plan, promote and execute a sustainable community outreach program • Activate a “Full-Throttle Goodness” culture that engages customers and stakeholders*

How much more bottom-line, positive business impact could you generate in an organization recognized by both customers and employees alike as a place that gives back, changes lives, builds community, and educates and elevates everyone who comes in the front door? Full-Throttle Goodness is a surefire way to increase engagement and satisfaction, provide a neutral space for training and growth at a low cost, and create a real sense of purpose and meaning.
