Build an Aligned and Self Motivated Workforce

Vince Poscente states, "If you truly want to align your team to sustained greatness, teach them how to Do What the Competition is Not Willing to Do. Every human being on the planet will make a decision about the path or direction they choose when they have an emotional buzz to urgency and they will take action. An an emotional connection to the urgency is life changing."

• Have a year long incentive plan.
• Give them executive coaching.
• Challenge them to reach a team goal.
• Use team building to generate the 'foxhole' mentality.

But what most leaders do not realize is the value of an artfully delivered experience of how to Do What the Competition is Not Willing to Do. In our world, that is a team building keynote presentation by Vince Poscente.

Vince Poscente crafts a message tailored to the needs of your audience. He uses music, audience engagement and video to hit a deep nerve. Quite simply he brings them to a moment of emotional intensity where they decide, in a heartbeat, on a path towards team synergy.

In other words...

• Leaders can be like parents with teenagers. It takes an outside voice to get through at times.
• The value of a delivering a "path changing" keynote is an investment in organizational growth.
• Two decades after a keynote by Vince Poscente, attendees still recall their experience and how they were impacted. (ask us how)

At the core of Poscente’s message about embracing speed is the claim that the continued acceleration of business and life is inevitable. If we cannot stop it, perhaps we should consider putting it to work for us. On a mass scale, we have developed a peculiar love-hate relationship with speed: though we want more, faster, now, we have adopted a mindset that speed is corrosive. In effect, we have decided that though we want speed, we do not like it. Poscente turns that perspective upside down and challenges audiences not to resist acceleration, but instead to turn the momentum of its inevitable rush to their advantage.

Vince shares the research he did for his New York Times best-selling about how companies and individuals are responding in different ways to the speed of business today.
• Jets - very agile companies that harness the speed of business and turn it to their advantage
• Bottle Rockets - companies that embrace speed, are going fast but are not smart about it
• Zeppelins - companies that resist the speed of business
• Balloons - companies that have chosen to live outside the age of speed – they don’t seek it and they don’t need to

Unraveling the notion that in today’s world we need to slow down, Poscente illustrates why harnessing the power of speed is the ultimate solution for those seeking less stress, less busyness, and more balance.

Who Benefits: Organizations and individuals that are going through major change at a rapid-fire pace will especially benefit from Vince’s message.

“Focusing on change alone is a mistake. Let’s redirect our focus on embracing the speed in our more-faster-now culture. You don’t cope with change...you embrace it. What is critical is the next level...not coping with speed but harnessing it. Execution is not about what to do…it is about how to do it…that’s what creates innovative execution.” Vince Poscente
