THE “LEAD TO GOLD” FORMULA FOR MAXIMIZING LEADERSHIP

In this talk, we will cover how leaders can overcome any obstacle and turn challenges into great opportunities, creating the mindset and attitude that will help you thrive in any environment. We will uncover how to get the most value out of your current business skills and assets, while discovering how to leverage what holds us back. You will learn how to transform challenges into valuable assets that will propel you and your team to the next level. Finally, Stephen will discuss how to create your own formula that will help lead others to even greater success. Learning this formula will open up unlimited possibility within your leader’s ability, desires, and confidence!

THE “LEAD TO GOLD FORMULA” FOR ENERGIZING YOUR SALES TEAM

In this talk, we will focus on what inspires and drives sales teams to their highest potential, both individually and as a team. Salespeople are the lifeblood of any organization. Understanding how to keep them inspired, engaged, productive, and evolving to their highest potential serves them and the organization. Mindset, confidence, finely-tuned skills, accountability, and reward are just a few of the many items in the formula that can lead to long-lasting and record-breaking sales teams. I have hired and trained thousands of salespeople over the years, so I have come to uniquely understand how to get them to overcome their deepest fears and roadblocks, unleashing their greatest gold within themselves. In turn, this creates increased performance, raving customers, and higher sales. It will also lead to longer-term relationships and cut down on the high turnover many companies experience. This is a truly a win-win that can benefit everyone involved for their own highest good!

DOING WELL BY DOING GOOD, CONNECTING UNIQUELY TO YOUR CUSTOMERS

We all know attracting customers and keeping them engaged and happy is key to the success of our businesses. In this talk, we will explore how to better communicate and engage with your customers through all of your communication points. Whether it is the front desk, administration, sales, or customer service departments, everyone must take responsibility in their role in keeping the client happy, satisfied, and raving about all you do.

Beyond the one-on-one interactions, there needs to be an overall sense of company goodwill that is obvious to the team and the public. How can we maximize random acts of kindness to reflect the soul of the company? Is it possible to promote goodwill while staying within the vision that leadership has set? Doing well by doing good is not just a phrase, it is a way of life and must be in the DNA of your company at every level. When others know how much you care and how passionately you exude this, your company will excel. Your clients see it, feel it, and experience it, so they realize you are more than just for profit — you are “for benefit.” And in this day and age, hearing negative news everyday, most everyone will resonate with “doing well be doing good!” This talk will leave your audience with more desire, passion, and skills to better your customers, the company, and the world!

THE “LEAD TO GOLD” FORMULA BREAKING THROUGH FEAR TO GREAT POWER!

We all have fear; it is in each and everyone one of us at any given time. Anyone who tells you they are not afraid is either in denial or lying (probably out of fear!). In this talk, we will explore the origin of fear and how it can affect us in every area of our life, be it professional or personal.

Fear can take many forms and expressions. It may be frustration, anger, sabotage, procrastination, ego, over-compensating, pushing, boasting, yelling, not speaking, lashing out, running. The key is not to eliminate fear but to recognize it and transform it as quickly as you can into the power you deserve. We will go on a journey through original fear-based stories that lead to amazing triumphs. We will explore how to recognize fear in yourself and others and how you can immediately take actions to use that fear to propel you even faster and deeper toward those desired goals and dreams.

Wherever there is the biggest fear in your life to stop, take a deep breath and run there. Yes, right towards it! It is here you will find great power and create your own “Lead to Gold” formula in your life! Taking on this mindset can dramatically impact your leadership, sales teams, staff, and communications. You will see how this common denominator of fear can end up being the most life-changing shift you can take!
