In a quantified, step-by-step formulated presentation filled with Dan’s world-famous funny and tear-jerking stories, researched data, and today’s technology, Dan carefully and completely diagrams the Six Steps Of Human Performance. Mixing psychology, sociology, and philosophy with movie clips and music, Dan will take you and your people on an emotional rollercoaster ride through the process of identifying who and where you currently are physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and financially, in both your personal and professional lives, and then show you how, why and when you can get from where you are to where you want to be.
In Dan’s customary hilarious yet thought-provoking, entertaining yet highly educational way, he will teach you how to minimize chance, the difference between thinking and dreaming, the difference between being depressed and being disappointed or discouraged, the necessity of establishing “Need” and “Trust” requisite to “Love,” how to focus and set expectations, how to accelerate personal productivity to peak performance, and how to transform your life from “letting” it happen to “Making” it happen and achieving Desired Results. With intimate personal experiences and time-tested business examples, Dan teaches and proves that Internal Belief and Physiology create State of Mind, which is influenced by Attitude, and together, create Behavior and Desired High Performance Results.
In this popular presentation, Dan teaches that you can get anything in life you want if you are willing to help enough other people get what they want. Audiences will learn that the goal is for everybody to do the right thing simply because it’s the right thing to do – not because it’s expected by leadership, but because it is demanded of ourselves!
Dan will challenge people to answer for themselves: Why should I improve? What’s in it for me? Will it make me feel important and fulfilled? What must I do to make people around me better so I help the team win? With Dan’s inspiration and their newly found ownership of these personal answers, the resulting positive behavior is likely to be a permanent lifestyle improvement rather than another self-development fad you tried out that failed within weeks.
Do you strap into a fighter jet or do you strap the jet onto you? High performance flying & living is about feeling, intuition, & emotional connection. Selling is everybody’s business. In tough times everybody must be a producer. Because it’s not what you do, but who you do it with, and we like to do business with winners. There is a sales process that builds credibility where trust is earned, and a sales presentation when you close the deal. By avoiding the Seven Deadly Sins That Sabotage Sales, you will make your co-workers and clients feel like they belong to one family, and that loyalty is a two way commitment that leaves both parties saying, “I like me best when I’m with you. I want to see you again!”
Dan played American football for 13 years & learned it’s not all about team – teams lose. Companies are going bankrupt as you read this and they have a team. It’s about winning. There is no “I” in team, but there are two “I’s” in winning. The first “I” represents Independent Individual Preparation – a commitment to Clarity, Character, Confidence, Consistency, Change, Cause and Chemistry. The second “I” in winning represents Interdependent Collaboration – a commitment to Contribution, Cohesion, and Conclusion. In this context, it IS about team, but because it’s what you do when the coach is not around that makes you a champion, the teams that win have the greatest number of “I Players” on them who live all of these Ten Commitments in their personal and professional lives!
In this high-energy, motivational, humorous yet high-content presentation, Dan teaches what it takes to become a peak performing individual and increasing productivity is already inside your people and within your organization. Dan asks four provocative questions and delivers four powerful solutions that will take your people to the next level and bring your desired results. Therefore, as a quantifying template to bundle the take-away value, Dan builds a four cornerstone box as the container wherein you can put all the facts and feelings of your meeting, take it home, and immediately implement it into your life. The Four Cornerstones are the four “secrets” posed as four questions.
