Can you crush an economic curve ball?
There is global instability in the financial markets, the U.S. faces the threat of another recession, unemployment is high and consumer confidence is low.
How are you doing in your business?
Mark Sanborn has insights that will help you keep hitting it out of the park despite the wicked curves balls you’re being thrown.
In just one year, Mark faced a life-threatening shockwave. Simultaneously, his business and investments took a serious hit.
Yet, Mark remains convinced this perfect storm of setbacks was the flashpoint of a lifetime. After decades of great success, he was acutely staged to deploy his ‘mastery of the unpredictable.’
Maybe life has pushed your face in the mud; while others around you were building monuments. Maybe you’ve said, “I’m doing everything right. I don’t deserve this. Why are they successful…and I’m not?”
The answer is elegant in its simplicity. Your competitors are leveraging ‘the unpredictable.’
Vigilant managers expect unpredictability to pounce behind ever bend. So, they vigorously apply what Mark found to be the six (often malnourished) principles that always insure victory.
Mark’s epiphany was, “setbacks can actually fuel your survival and prosperity”…in economic conditions that go Up, Down, and Sideways.
That’s why you need this presentation based on his book Up, Down or Sideways: How to Succeed When Times are Good, Bad or In Between.
Sanborn shows your team how to prepare for unpredictability. He coaches you on how to inspire sane leadership during insane times.
Despite the cheerful claim that “we choose not to participate in the recession,” the reality is that your business and customers are affected by such an economic downturn. Mark can show you how to succeed in spite of such challenging conditions.
Up, Down, or Sideways is bursting with actionable ideas.
1. Why “Best Practices” Are a Ticking Time Bomb. Learn how to find better and next practices.
2. Focusing on the Only Two Ways Any Organization Can Grow. How to determine when you leaders (and their people) have stopped growing. If they aren’t growing, your business has no chance of growing either.
3. Don’t Overthink “Metrics.” Only two interconnected metrics matter: (A) great people and (B) great results. You’ll learn how to consistently inspire both people and profits.
4. How Customer/Client Loyalty Tactics Differ Between Vendors and Partners. You’ll learn what is necessary to build relationships that transition you from “vendor” to “partner.”
5. How To Identify if Your Employees Are Wasting Your Money…and Their Time. You’ll leave this program knowing how to get your people to focus on their MVP (most valuable and profitable) activities.
6. Learn The Economic Advantages of Practicing Gratitude. It doesn’t do much good be be grateful if you aren’t demonstrating the most crucial behaviors. You’ll learn the precise values great leaders always “model” to their employees, colleagues and customers.
PROGRAM NOTE: Mark can present this program to a mixed audience of managers and employees – or tailor it specifically to managers and top tier leaders.
