How can you get your team to be more engaged, positive, and productive? By using lessons from the world’s most demanding leadership laboratory – the field of combat. Major General Vinny Boles shares time-tested methods for leaders looking to help their team put their hearts and spirits into organizational goals and aspirations. The session includes these valuable takeaways:

  • The 4 expectations teams have of their leaders

  • The 3 questions leaders must always ask AND answer.

  • The 1 important point to focus on when leading your team.

Audiences will come away with a clear and coherent way to ensure their teams don’t just show up and put their feet behind the desk, but commit their hearts and spirit into what you need to accomplish.

20/70/10: The 3 Parts of Your Team (and the Critical One to Spend Your Energy On).

Are you spending most of your time on the bottom 10% of your people? In this presentation, Major General Boles reveals every team is made up of three parts, and leaders must recalculate the time they spend focused on each segment. Boles will help leaders identify:

  • The ones who don’t really need you (and why that’s OK)

  • The ones God put here to test you (and how to ace that test)

  • The ones who haven’t made up their minds yet (and how to help them help you).
