REACHING BEYOND BOUNDARIES

Don Mann's unique story and the lessons he shares during his highly-accredited and popular presentations come from his colorful and action-packed life as a Navy SEAL Team SIX Commando, an internationally renowned endurance athlete and as a New York Times Best-Selling Author. He has changed countless lives by sharing his unique "Reaching Beyond Boundaries" philosophy. Don has tailored his presentation to meet the needs of those in the corporate, financial, medical, educational and athletic communities.

He shares insights into his philosophy of setting micro-goals to achieve macro-goals while instructing organizations how to employ that same philosophy to achieve both personal and professional success. Don's message includes equal doses of inspiration and strategy. As he likes to say, "Anybody with the proper mindset can achieve anything imaginable."

Setting macro goals is an important way for organizations to identify what it is they want to accomplish, although sometimes reaching those goals can be a daunting task. By breaking those macro goals down into micro-goals, they become much more manageable and easier to handle.

Shortly after the mission that left Osama bin Laden dead, Mann published the bestseller Inside Seal Team SIX: My Life and Missions with America's Elite Warriors. He incorporates many of the same lessons and stories into his presentations, which often leave attendees inspired to change how they live.

In his inspiring presentation "Reaching Beyond Boundaries" Mann reveals similar stories and personal anecdotes from his many years working with the SEAL teams and competing as a world-class athlete.
