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 upon 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.

  • 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
  • Inspire a Higher Level of Leadership
