Fearless Leadership

Perhaps the greatest challenge that you will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Fear has always been the greatest enemy of mankind. When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of associated anxiety, stress and unhappiness. This speech by Eric Boles is based on this premise. Just think: What would you dare to dream, be or do if you were able to overcome your fears? Fortunately, the habit of courage can be learned!

More Than Winning

The goal of every team is to win; no matter the venue or arena of competition, sports or business, the objective is to come out on top. What if there was a better approach that does not involve winning or losing, winning was simply the by-product? The pursuit of excellence is not about winning – it is “More than Winning.” It is giving your very best in pursuit of a goal or worthwhile endeavor bigger than yourself. It is bigger than any one individual and demands your very best. Eric Boles focuses on releasing a team’s potential. This is the result of effectively leveraging the individual strengths for the benefit of the team and the goal. We’ll show you the keys to unlock the potential.

Lead With Purpose

In this speech, Eric Boles will help you become intentional in how you positively influence others. The goal being that your influence grows alongside your commitment to creating great relationships. You will enjoy the practical and personal application of principles for inspiring, motivating, and developing others. Boles builds on the skills you already possess and equips you to achieve positive change in your life and the life of your organization through effective, visionary leadership.

Moving To Great

Eric Boles will deepen your understanding of the fundamentals of personal mastery and change enablement. Participants learn time-proven techniques and skills for enhancing personal accountability and helping themselves and others overcome the natural, human resistance to change. Boles provides a scientifically sound set of tools that will enable individuals to increase their self-efficacy (the ability to cause and make happen), improve their self-esteem and enhance their ability to set and accomplish bigger and better goals. A result of experiencing Moving To Great is a renewed sense of commitment and a greater willingness to seek out and implement new approaches to tackling both personal and organizational challenges.

Leading Change In The New Reality

Leading has never been easy, but it has never been more challenging than it is today in this “New Normal” or “New Reality.” Eric Boles discusses how the customer has never been more demanding, the competition never more stiff and the employees increasingly less engaged. All the while, industry changes and technology advances continue coming at a faster pace. Plus, despite all these demands, many leaders are being asked to accomplish more with less.
