His hands-on work as a consultant/general manager running companies as a turn-around expert means that Joe can relate to people that are feeling the press of tough-times and the challenges competition brings. Joe's motivational insights are refined by the real-world and touch people far more because they come from someone who has been there.

His story-telling is woven from a radical business and personal life.

How to Turn Challenge into Opportunity

Joe will share his heart-warming experience of how he built a seven-store retail business from the ground up as a young man and saw it ravaged by a ring of 12 thieves. His gritty struggle to keep his company alive and encourage his loyal employees while navigating extreme challenges will inspire your audience. The devastating affects of broken trust, sudden loss of employees and high stress Joe experienced will validate Joe for your audience as a person who has been there.

He will intertwine the inescapable fact that our personal and professional lives are bound together and need to be dealt with as a whole instead of the modern day tendency to compartmentalize. Joe and his wife Jill were living the American dream until rapid growth created an opportunity for theft they did not anticipate. This challenging situation came in the midst of them raising their three very young children; all under the age of four.

Joe will share valuable insights that he gleaned from this crucible that made him a sought-after consultant who was able to take these lessons and turn-around other businesses. Your audience will be inspired to hear how these core principles learned in a time of extreme adversity enable Joe to turn challenge into opportunity.

He will amaze your audience with where these lessons took him professionally and personally. Your audience will be just as intrigued by Joe's story as the Wall Street Journal writer who did a feature story on his unusual life and who called Joe: "a pioneer and renaissance man."

Beyond Generational Differences
Success Thru Trust

Rather than focus on the differences this session focuses on the leadership traits that need to be developed that will engage different generations and cultures.

A study of effective leaders will yield a clear message that there are fundamental leadership traits that appeal to all generations and all cultures. The problem is that many leaders practice leadership in a way that only appeals to the generation in which they were raised. They have gaps in their leadership that their generation may forgive or not notice. But these gaps stand out and get in the way of others that have a different perspective.

The good news is that this means that the issue is not an insurmountable generational or cultural gap. Instead of focusing on the negative generational differences, there is an opportunity for leaders to grow to a higher level of effectiveness. Simply put, it is more challenging to lead multi-generational and multi-cultural groups. And this session equips leaders for that challenge.

We will not waste time bemoaning the negative traits that different groups possess. In the market-place of management ideas, there is too much time spent pointing out the differences of generations and not enough time spent on solutions. This session will identify the four keys to leadership that are important to all generations and cultures. It will help managers identify where they have gaps in their style that if modified will equip them to lead more effectively. These four keys will be broken into practical and inspiring take-home insights that are immediately applicable.


--How people of all ages and cultures respond.
--Changing barriers into bridges.
--How to foster a culture so that everyone is creative and innovative.
--Defining "fun" from "their" perspective.
--Defining "value" from "their" perspective.
--How to build trust.
--How to foster team commitment.
--How to strengthen dialogue.
--Leadership secrets that cause multiple generations to say: "Yes, I love it here!."
