Winning with Teamwork!
Successful organizations consistently demonstrate the importance of teamwork in achieving a positive outcome to a project or major goal. Individuals rarely achieve what a team can achieve through teamwork. Don Strankowski presents the 7 Power Principles behind all successful teams and how high-performing organizations implement each principle in determining their vision and then executing a plan for success.
Success is a Choice
The starting point of all success is the development of a positively-oriented thought process. You must become a success in your thinking long before you achieve it in your reality. The most important single step you ever take on the road to success in any given field, is the decision to change your thinking. Impress into your mind an unshakable belief that you can and will achieve your goals.
Breaking out of the comfort zone, overcoming fears, employing the power of persistence, developing a positive attitude, goal setting, and becoming the best at what you do are the central themes in this presentation. Don supports his ideas and principles with uplifting real-life stories and motivational anecdotes.
Success is a Choice is an ideal presentation for organizations looking to inspire and motivate employees; challenging each person to take ownership and responsibility for their own success. The net result of this seminar are motivated, engaged employees that now have the tools to succeed. This presentation is interactive, fun and entertaining!
Every Minute Counts! – Taking Responsibility for Your Own Success and Motivating Customers into ACTION
For today’s organizations, image IS everything. Customer service is paramount; if your customers are dissatisfied, and in some cases only satisfied, it can reflect on your organization’s image, performance, and moral.
From the receptionist’s tone and voice over the phone to an initial meeting with a staff member, client’s opinions and assumptions about an organization are often created in the first few minutes of contact. With this in mind, it is vital for today’s organizations to teach the concept that everyone’s role is important; from the front desk associate on up to the CEO.
Organizations that operate in today’s highly-competitive marketplace must employ the mindset that the “motivation” of clients and customers to take action starts with the employees themselves being motivated to take action. Engaged and inspired employees result in happy and well-satisfied customers and clients!
Goal Setting for Success: A 7-Step Action Plan for Achieving ANY Goal
Goal setting is the number one common denominator among all highly successful people and organizations. We are all motivated by purpose and desire. We are never really happy or fulfilled unless we are moving toward the accomplishment of something that’s important to us.
The people who are the best in their field, occupation, or discipline know what they want and have an action plan for achieving it. The ability to set goals and make plans for their accomplishment is integral to your success as it relates to anything in life that is worth pursuing. Developing this one skill will do more to ensure your personal success—and your organization’s success—more than anything else.
In this seminar, learn how to develop higher levels of passion and desire, get motivated and stay motivated, and how to employ a 7-step action plan for achieving any goal.
