Franchise Leaders’ Winning Mindset

Practical takeaways for franchise growth

In the franchise and retail world, a winner’s mindset points to one thing: Do what the competition is not willing to do. How? Here's how to put your conference takeaways into action:

Be ALIGNED with the entire company rather than a “wait and see” approach. You've invested in their tools, let's optimize them.

Use AGILITY to be out front of the competition. Let's have everyone mirror your top performers.

Embrace ADAPTABILITY in the age of speed. Let's thrive in our more, faster, now world.

Vince Poscente uses his background as an Olympian and Expedition Leader in the Himalayas to address your two top concerns,  excellence in a competitive landscape and resilience on the path to new heights. Vince’s fun and energetic style is coupled with insights from his New York Times bestselling books on leadership for the self. For 25 years, Vince has helped franchise and retail leaders do what the competition is not willing to do.

Peak Performance Health and Safety

Creating a peak performance culture for healthcare or safety audiences.

Vince Poscente specializes in helping health and safety-conscious cultures improve risk performance through neuroscience and entertaining storytelling. His Peak Performance Mindset program is backed by years of leading climbing expeditions in the Himalayas (14 years, zero-incident), as a skier in the Olympics, NY Times bestselling author, and risk-aware partnerships with safety culture leaders around the world.

Conventional health or safety keynotes offer inspiration to approach their jobs differently. A Peak Performance Mindset keynote explains how in a fun and experiential way. The formula your audience will learn is based on three decades of research on how ‘the ideal mindset’ is established and sustained. When people change their minds, they change their behavior, for good.

Change your truth around health and safety and you can change the organization’s culture. Please note, when you choose the Peak Performance Mindset presentation, be sure to choose between a purely motivational keynote, insights packed with practical mindset tools, entertaining stories... or all three in one power-packed talk.
