A good speech should be delivered with passion, should have relevant, compelling content, and should have appropriate levels of good humor. My keynote speeches run anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes and are carefully crafted to command attention and provoke thought. My heroes in this regard include Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, William F. Buckley, Robert Mayer Evans, and Neal A. Maxwell.
Seminars and Workshops
Skill transfer is the primary purpose of my seminars and workshops. While entertaining, their main point is to enable individuals with varying needs and aptitudes to embrace new skills.
Some of the more recent topics for both my speeches and seminars have included:
What Is Leadership?
Leader As Coach
- 7 Deadly Sins of Leadership
- Leader As Change Agent
- Life-Long Learning
- Stirred, not Shaken
- Great Leaders of the Past: What we can learn from Churchill, Gandhi, Reagan, Lincoln, and Brigham Young
A number of my clients have brought me in to manage the decision process when key leaders from opposing constituencies needed to come together and hash out differences, air opposing views, and eventually come to an agreement. They needed someone who didn’t have a dog in that particular fight, and I was their facilitator of choice. In every instance, I have been successful in bringing out the best — the synergies — of all groups involved in ways that are dispassionate, unbiased, and effective.
While I do offer personal coaching for individuals and entrepreneurs (see Coaching tab above) much of my consulting work for my corporate clients involves coaching both their high-potentials and those who may be experiencing a productivity slump. Whether it involves management, account executives, customer service personnel, or administrative staff, I possess the skills to enable others to experience breakthroughs in personal productivity.
