A Few of Gary’s Favorite Presentations:
“Art of Telling – Communicating Your Way to the Top”
Men and women who use the spoken word powerfully are the men and women who change the world – Our World! There is a world of difference between talking to others and communicating with others. Effective Communication is a million-dollar skill, a path to success in all areas of your life, both personal and professional. Yet, most of us have very little to no education on the most important skill sets to the quality of our lives both personally and professionally. Gary’s “Art of Telling” is professional speaking education for professionals in every day use. He shares this dynamic education with professionals and students throughout the world because nothing is so simple that it can’t be misunderstood.
“Discovering Execution – The Key to High Performance Organizations”
What does it mean to “discover” execution when everyone knows what execution is? It means transforming a vague notion of execution as a good skill to have into realizing how critical and radical mastering execution can be for both individuals and organizations in terms of what they can and do accomplish. The world is slowly awakening to the possibility of getting better and better at execution and companies from small to large are discovering the power of it. Execution – once discovered – can turn into a journey of mastery.
By discovering execution, you’ll be in the forefront of what is becoming more and more a revolutionary trend in business. The ability to execute is the most valuable personal and organizational competency you can have. The Age of Execution is upon us and the journey is still a “road less taken,” but one that will benefit the journeyers for the rest of their lives!
“The Art of Invitation – Building Your Authority Status”
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to prescribe to your prospects instead of always having to sell to them? If you want to be liberated from selling, if you want to prescribe your products and services rather than always having to sell them, then you need to focus on building your authority status and start becoming the leader in your field. Learning the “Art of Invitation” is actually easier than learning the “Art of Selling.”
