Fearless Leadership
Eric Boles will provide you with tools and strategies to lead yourself and others with more confidence and less fear.

We need “Fearless Leaders” now more than ever who can lead courageously. With all the challenges and uncertainty in the world today it easy to let fear influence you. Perhaps the greatest challenge that many of us will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Fear has always been the greatest enemy of mankind. Letting fear get its grip on you can cripple you both personally and professionally.
Key Points of this Presentation:

  • Fear works best in isolation
  • Conquering fear with a stronger emotion
  • Focusing on the Vital
  • Challenging, Coaching and Leading to Results
  • Fear and Selfishness go hand in hand
  • Seeking out experience and being transparent
  • Fear is Contagious
  • Confronting real problems and controlling your imagination
  • You can only “pose” so long
  • Becoming a “Chief Courage Officer”
  • Going First and Leading the Way

Eric Boles will weave powerful stories and depth around each of these strategies that will touch the heads and hearts of your people. He will work with you to customize his presentation around your meeting theme, key business issues and goals so you get the results you want. Plus the audience will receive relevant information that they can put to work immediately both personally and professionally.

Leading in the New Reality
Eric Boles will focus on key strategies to allow you to lead and influence more effectively.

Leading has never been easy, but it has never been more challenging than it is today in this “New Normal” or “New Reality.” The customer has never been more demanding, the competition never more stiff, the employees increasingly less engaged. All the while, industry changes and technology advances continue coming at a faster pace. Plus, despite all these demands, many leaders are being asked to accomplish more with less.

Key Points of this Presentation:

  • Fear works best in isolation
  • Leaders becoming “Dealers of Hope”
  • Changing the Momentum
  • The need to be more than your job description
  • Are you leading to win or not to lose?
  • Staying hungry and humble
  • Overcoming fear and leading more courageously
  • Seeing the potential through all the hazards and noise around you
  • Being fearful and doing it anyway
  • Having difficult conversations…making tough decisions….taking action
  • No longer allowing good intentions to be a substitute for actual accomplishment
  • Inspiring your people and leading the change
  • Being at your “best” more of the time

Eric Boles will weave powerful stories and depth around each of these strategies that will touch the heads and hearts of your people. He will work with you to customize his presentation around your meeting theme, key business issues and goals so you get the results you want and need. Plus, they will receive relevant information that they can put to work immediately both personally and professionally.

Moving to Great
Eric Boles help you unleash your potential and be at your best more of the time.

How do you get to the next level? You may be in a “rut” or you may be doing incredibly, but the pressure from all around you demands that you “up” your game. You can’t rest on your past successes, and the good ole’ days are gone forever. You cannot be left behind. You don’t want to be left behind. Where do you get the energy and the strategies to move to the next level while the competition and the stress increase? Some of the limitations you identify may even be mental and self-imposed. How do you get of your own way and move forward?

Key Points of this Presentation:

  • Meeting expectations is another definition of mediocrity
  • Stop playing “prevent” defense
  • Confronting problems and fears releases potential
  • The danger of comparing yourself to the competition
  • Whatever your mind dwells on grows
  • Truly serving others and the organization
  • Accepting responsibility and self-correcting
  • Overcoming complacency and managing change
  • Returning to your first love and discovering your passion
  • Importance of working together and sharing successes
  • Looking for the big opportunities and avoiding the big hazards
  • Avoiding the “victim” mentality
  • Designing your own future

Eric Boles will weave powerful stories and depth around each of these strategies that will touch the heads and hearts of your people. He will work with you to customize his presentation around your meeting theme, key business issues and goals so you get the results you want. Plus, your audience will receive relevant information that they can put to work immediately both personally and professionally.
