    Leadership

    • Leaders shape culture, which in turn, shapes performance and determines the ultimate financial condition of your business.
    • Leadership is a choice, not a position. If we got rid of your title would people still follow you?
    • In this theme we unpack the character strengths of great leaders and show you how these strengths play out in some of the world’s most revolutionary companies.
    • Our objective here is to help you dramatically accelerate the development of leaders at every level within your company.
    • We want to help you grow leaders who can energize and inspire others, who refuse to be held hostage by history and who have the GUTS to move your organization in bold new directions.

    Engagement and Culture

    • What if your company had a reputation for being the BEST PLACE, where the BEST PEOPLE, can do their BEST WORK? We’re talking serious competitive advantage!
    • You can deliver on the brand promise you make to your employees; it means creating a place where impassioned people come to work fully awake, fully engaged and committed to driving growth.
    • We’ll unpack Southwest Airlines’ crazy, yet very purposeful recipe for creating one of the most productive workforces in the world with 37 consecutive years of profitability.
    • The greatest success story in the history of commercial aviation boasts a culture in which 35,000+ people are fully committed and inspired to achieve extremely high productivity, service, safety and financial objectives.

    • We layout the preconditions leaders must create to make innovation a way of life—a deeply embedded part of your cultural DNA.
    • Find out how the most creative companies in the world innovate BEYOND customer expectations.
    • Learn what the best leaders do to inspire ingenuity and unleash imagination—to create a place that is perpetually loaded with fresh ideas.

    Service

    • Service and loyalty are the result of leadership from the inside out—the consistent, diehard execution of a “people-first” service philosophy.
    • This theme addresses the critical links between leaders who adhere to a “people-first” philosophy, turned-on, passionate employees who give something of themselves in addition to just doing the job and fiercely devoted customers who evangelistically tell your story.
    • The research is very clear. Companies known for world-class service, quality and hospitality work hard to create cultures (even in tough times) where employees feel honored and served; people truly trust and connect with each other; seamless collaboration translates into flawless execution and work is fun.
    • This theme allows you to borrow from the best and create your own “people-first” service strategy.
    • We have written about many of the most admired companies and global service brands around and we’re passionate about revealing the chutzpah and details behind their success.

    Loyalty – Fiercely Devoted Customers

    • We’ll share the key factors that will take you from plain vanilla consumer satisfaction to extreme customer loyalty; from simply being a vendor of choice to being a trusted advisor and a strategic partner with your clients.
    • What if your team knew more about the pressures, pain points, preferences and particular nuances of your customers than anyone?
    • What if they positioned themselves as industry experts who are better than anyone at providing relevant solutions?
    • What if they mastered the discipline of follow-up and the art of making customers feel special long after the solution is delivered?
    • Using these strategies your team can become the “go-to” people that fiercely devoted customers can’t live without and competitors can’t dethrone.

    Accountability

    • You learn what it takes to establish a critical mass of players who OWN IT.
    • You know the type; the shakers and movers who take initiative vs. take orders. They don’t make excuses, they make things happen.
    • They might be victims of a crummy economy, an industry in turmoil or an organization undergoing significant change, yet they refuse to be victimized.
    • Instead, they bring energy, vitality, creativity and the best of themselves to work—they are people of excellence and they create POCKETS OF EXCELLENCE.
    • You’ll get timeless choices, stories to share and actions to use immediately to create your own pockets of excellence

    • The future is unpredictable and the pace of change continues to accelerate.
    • If you want to bebuilt to last you must be built to change.
