Speech Topics

The R Factor: Maximize the one thing you control

A breakthrough resource that has resonated with audiences worldwide! Unlike many other keynote presentations, The R Factor immediately equips people with tools and skills to produce better results at work and at home. Using the simple but powerful framework of E+R=O (Event + Response = Outcome), The R Factor teaches people how to "Manage the R." Life is constant flow of events. But success is not determined by the events you experience. Success is determined by how you choose to "Manage the R." E+R=O is how life works. Our job is to get good at it.

Lead Now!

Performance cannot be declared. It must be led. The challenge is to break through personal barriers and become a great leader, not just someone in a leadership role. Lead Now! focuses on the fundamental disciplines that leaders must get right: Build Trust (through character, competence, and connection) & Achieve Results (through clarity, accountability, and support). The performance of an organization will be no better than the effectiveness of its leaders.

The Performance Driver Model: Building and Leading a High Performance Organization

Every organization is perfectly designed to get the results it's getting. Effective leaders understand and manage five key performance drivers: Culture, Strategy, Process, Structure, and People. They focus on how these "Five Drivers" perform as a business system that meets the needs of customers – in order to drive revenue, profit, and loyalty.

Behavior Style: How to use your strengths, improve your weaknesses, and be more flexible.

Your behavior style significantly influences the way you perceive and process information, think, communicate, manage your emotions, and respond to change. Awareness of your style is important to being your very best at all times. It will help you use your strengths with confidence, build new skills, and communicate and connect better with people. One style is not effective for all situations. Style rigidity will get you in trouble; style flexibility will help you be more effective.

Making the Connection: How to build high-impact relationships.

Most people want great relationships, but not everyone gets them. Why? Because you don't get the relationships you want; you get the relationships you build! Your ability to connect with others is determined by how well you do four things: Care Deeply, Listen Carefully, Communicate Your Message Effectively, and Adjust Your Style Appropriately. If you want to improve any relationship in your life, the place to begin with is yourself!
