GENERAL AUDIENCES / KEYNOTE OR WORKSHOP
Mike works with the hosts of the event to build this experience from the subjects covered in the chapters of his book by the same name.
A great deal of life’s experiences are simply repetitions of a few basic skills, talents, and processes. While a study of positive thinking provides many a technique for handling the attitude part of life’s challenges and innate talent and hard work often provides abilities to accomplish certain things, when it comes to working with others, it is the understanding of process that has helped move experienced people comfortably through the situations many others have found difficult. The process used to run a Cub Scout meeting is the same to conduct a stockholders meeting. Fundraising for a worthy charity uses the same process as fundraising for a social club. Directing employees uses the same processes as effectively directing volunteers and so on.Mike helps create your experience based on these processes and includes the appropriate checklists as handouts to help reinforce their presence long after the conference.
KEYNOTE FOR MANAGERS / TEAM LEADERS
The words you choose to say to others and how you say them is important. But the words you choose to say to yourself are the essential building blocks of your future. Ancient wisdom suggests the path to destiny is a sequence beginning with personal thoughts. In the 20th century someone declared that the greatest human discovery was the fact that we can each control our personal internal conversation and change our outcomes. Mike wrote this rhyme to capture those thoughts:
The WORDS I often THINK and use
CREATE my daily ATTITUDES,
GUIDING the ACTIONS from which I CHOOSE,
To FORM the HABITS so HARD to LOSE,
HIGHLIGHTING the CHARACTER others see,
and they decide that that is ME,
and that is all THEY’LL LET ME BE
so thus is built MY DESTINY.
Words matter! Choose your thoughts well.
This presentation is explores the words we commonly use when talking to ourselves and others. It offers alternatives for improving self-image while improving communications skills and enhancing the work environment. It includes support materials to be used to spread the message throughout your organization. Let Mike help you improve the collaborative atmosphere of your organization.
GENERAL AUDIENCES / LEADERSHIP KEYNOTE
Many candidates for Leadership positions work to earn the “title” and benefits—and end up with a “responsibility” they are not be prepared to for. Too often leadership is viewed as a task-oriented opportunity judged by how well an event or collection of activities is executed. The true test of a leader, according to President John F. Kennedy, is to lead people. This presentation focuses on the responsibility leaders have to engage and grow those they lead.
This definition of Leadership is explored, along with the basic tools for helping others get involved. The presentation finally embraces the lead question, “How do I make a difference?”

From the first action-packed moment to the last “oh, yes!” the audience is engaged and encouraged to work together. The foundation of everyone’s success is accepting responsibility for the collective outcomes. Explore the tools for making that happen.
