Increasing Human Effectiveness
Managing the Rapids of Change
Increasing Human Effectiveness is all about self-management and the well-being of the individual. Organizations don’t change, people change. When you give your people tools for self-management, they become accountable for their own success. The Cauldron Theory states that to pour water into another’s cup you must first have water in yours. Eric Boles presents concepts, teaches skills and provides tools that enable individuals to make desired changes in their lives and to thrive in the midst of change.
Perhaps the greatest challenge that you will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Fear has always been the greatest enemy of mankind.
When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of the associated anxiety, stress, and unhappiness.
Fearless Leadership is based on this premise. Just think: What would you dare to dream, be or do if you were able to overcome your fears. Fortunately, the habit of courage can be learned, just as any other skill is learned.
In his presentation, Fearless Leadership, Eric Boles helps people learn to systematically diminish their fears, while simultaneously build the kind of courage that enables them to deal fearlessly with the inevitable up and downs of business and life.
Eric likes to change up the presentation to suit the audience. He has spoken sitting at his desk, standing up, and even sitting and standing outside. (weather permitting!)

Eric Boles as our keynote speaker at our 2019 Sales Conference, and he was incredible! He was an inspirational force and had everyone at our conference ready to move mountains and change the world by the time he finished speaking. He was passionate, enthusiastic and easily one of the best speakers we've ever had the privilege of hearing at our annual sales conference.
Eric was terrific--motivating and informative and set the stage for a productive internal discussion on culture. I cannot thank him enough for a great job. It was a very successful event.
Eric's presentation, which connected at all levels of our organization, was thought-provoking, engaging and entertaining. His stories, concepts and quotes kept all of us wanting more. He inspired us to think differently about our meaning in business and at home and the wisdom he passed on to us continues to be reflected on months after his presentation. We couldn't be happier with Eric's positive impact on our organization and we are looking for him to help us with future challenges.
You did a great job and our attendees really enjoyed your session! You also did a great job of incorporating things we said about our company into your speech. Our attendees were very motivated and talked about it the rest of the event. We look forward to having you in the future.Thanks again for joining us and giving a great presentation!
Our team is at a critical moment and your message was perfectly aligned with what our leaders need to focus on as we create the new Kraft Foods.Your emphasis on "Fearless Leadership" and harvesting effectiveness into full potential resonated.
