Pursuing Elite

The 5 ‘gifts’ of Elite Achievers 

​In any pursuit, you can only have one of five outcomes:


Bad, Average, Good, Excellent, or Elite.


If the endeavor is your passion or profession, the only acceptable result is somewhere between excellent and elite.


The PURSUING ELITE presentation will teach through the five gifts that elite achievers share:


-  Balanced

-  Curious

-  Tribal

-  Intentional

-  Authentic

TheArchers & The Arrows

The Art of Difference-Making

​Promotion in life and business is a natural benefit of hardwork and dedication. It can also be a challenge, evolving from DOING the work to LEADING the workers. 


This challenge is captured in the analogy of archers and arrows. Effective arrows fly straight and strike the target. Effective archers have a variety of targets in sight, and a quiver full of arrows ready to strike.


The ARCHERS AND ARROWS presentation will teach through the Archer's Process:


-  Pick: Talent selection

-  Pull: Training the talent

-  Pause: Aiming the talent

-  Release: Trusting the talent

-  Reload: Scan for the next challenge
