Bro – you rock!

"Sam, hey, I was one of the guys who helped with the production, lights and sound today. Bro - you rock!  We have to sit through each session that the client plans and most of them are snoozers.  A bunch of us were talking at dinner and we all agreed, your session is one of the best we have ever seen - literally! You held our attention the whole time.  Most of the team just hangs out, but they all listened in.  That's impressive man. I'm going to tell more our clients about you. You defiantly know how to wake up a room and bring energy to it.  It was a pleasure working with you and hope to see you down the road at more events."

Attitude Changes Everything! (Most Requested)

Attitude Changes Everything, book by Sam GlennThis keynote presentation by Sam Glenn is an empowering, entertaining and captivating way to recharge your group’s attitude batteries, rekindle enthusiasm and ignite a new level of personal and professional positivity +! It is what we like to call a positive kick in the attitude!

Every day we pick the attitude we will go at life with. Sam often refers to this as picking the driver of your bus. Which attitude do you want driving your bus for your life and your organization?   The bus being our skills, education, experience and objectives. If the wrong attitude is driving our bus, we will not achieve our full potential or give our best.  This is why it is vital to have attitude awareness – to understand that the attitude we choose everyday is either leading us closer to our desired success or further away from it.

Our attitude is a lot like a battery and sometimes it loses it’s positive charge. Sam not only puts that positive spark into everyone’s attitude, but shows how to maintain that positive spark in the midst of adversity and the things that drain us. Sam discusses how we make attitude a choice everyday and that our attitude is either in the way or making a way and we determine which every day.

This program is designed to rekindle your organization’s enthusiasm. More than just having a positive attitude, Sam discusses ways to put the right attitude into action and how doing so will achieve the best results. While we cannot control what goes on around us, we can control our perceptions, responses and actions, which ultimately form our attitude. In this side-splitting humorous program Sam shares his seven attitude lessons that will transform your organization.

Some Key Take Away Points Sam will Highlight In His Speech:

  1.  How to detox any negative or disruptive thinking that keeps us from being our best.
  2.  The fastest way to reduce stress and get your attitude on a positive track.
  3.  How to increase your leadership factor. Leadership is not a position; it is our attitude mixed with positive efforts.
  4.  How to inject more positivity into your organizations culture and atmosphere. The atmosphere you create determines your culture, product, service and reputation.
  5. Realistic ideas that work on dealing with things that drain our attitude battery.   Attitude drainers include the stresses of unexpected changes, challenges, growth, regulations, restructure, technologies and whatever else you can think of.
  6.  How to deal with negative situations and people in a faster, friendly and more effective way.
  7.  How to raise the roof of excellence, quality, purpose and engagement with one simple attitude.

Share Your Popcorn

 ( An Inspirational Approach to Personal and Professional Leadership)

We all lead everyday.  However, to be a better leader,  we need to be aware of how and why we lead.  This humorous and insightful perspective on becoming a better leader will open your mind and ears to to lead in new and empowering ways.

Real leaders demonstrate courage daily, which means they lead outside their comfort zone.  They learn to lead themselves first and then become an example for others to replicate.

Real leaders give away 3 things daily - inspiration, recognition and purpose.

Real leaders who share their popcorn take only 1 thing every day - responsibility.

"Share Your Popcorn - Leadership"

Sharing your popcorn is a metaphor for sharing your heart - your vision, belief, passion and purpose.  The idea is to make the message stick and Sam communicates just how to do that in only a way he knows how.

A few other lessons to expect in this speech:

  • Discover a leader’s #1 priceless and zero cost resource for boosting morale.
  • How our communication determines responses in others.
  • Why helping people find purpose in what they do is the key to excellence.
  • How to build loyalty. Satisfied employees are fine, but loyal employees are like striking gold!
  • How to remove negativity roadblocks internally.
  • How to Positively Navigate People Through Change.
  • How to build a safe culture where people can grow through mistakes and find encouragement to keep getting better.

Inspirational leaders develop leaders at all levels. They set an example that others respect and replicate. They mentor through change and coach for success. They empower people to do the right things. They eliminate limitations that prevent people from performing at their best. They provide tools, training and opportunities for personal and professional development. This cultivates and attitude of engagement and belief that positivity in the workplace is vital to the success of the team and the organization.

But, what happens when we don’t have enthusiasm in the workplace?

Organizations that DO NOT make enthusiasm a priority suffer negative consequences of higher turnover, more stress, weakened communication, more conflict, less profit, upset customers and disengaged employees. Without a positive focus, your workplace becomes a factory of zombies rather than a place where people feel they can grow and thrive. Basically, without enthusiasm, your heart will not be fully in what you do.  This presentation by Sam Glenn will rekindle your passion, drive, loyalty, excitement and deepen your defined purpose in the work you do.

This talk is for groups who want and need a positive recharge, encouragement to take things to a new level, manage change better, recognize greatness and desire to make a positive difference.

Bottom Line: Enthusiasm is essential to your success! If you don’t believe it, just try riding the bus without it and you will understand the message.
