Drive the Ball: Sustaining Excellence & Leading Through Change

We live in a time of rapid development. Business culture is evolving and mergers, acquisitions, and global expansion help create new opportunities. Smart companies keep ahead of the curve, but those willing to push the limits of what is possible - the .01 percent - are breaking the curve.

"Drive the Ball" is the answer to that question. This keynote will help you in the following areas:

• Create sustained innovation: Foley will share how creating group unity helped him innovate maneuvers for the Blue Angels

Fearles Success: Leading Through Change 

Connecting, aligning, and unifying teams that are geographically remote or unable to travel can be a daunting task. Leading through these changes with an attitude of gratitude can transform the way your organization does business.

In his virtual presentations, John shares the wisdom of his experiences and brings audiences inside the cockpit for the experience of a lifetime. His interactive virtual presentations will leave your audience feeling connected, inspired and ready to commit to a world where anything is possible.

The key to John’s “Fearless Success” system is the Glad To Be Here mindset, a powerful new way of thinking, working and living that connects people on a human level. This mindset will engage your employees on an intellectual and emotional level to create deeper commitment and elevate overall performance.

Key Takeaways

– How to build a culture of excellence, clarity and focus that will transcend virtual boundaries.

– A shared “attitude of gratitude” called Glad To Be Here that will transform your organization.

– Master a process and a mindset for leading through change.

– Find your “purpose larger than self” and use that purpose to elevate execution and drive results.

All of John’s presentations are customized to meet your specific needs. A briefing call with John and his team will identify your needs and allow an experience that serves the direct goals of your meeting or event.

The High-Performance Climb

Every organization depends upon the performance of its people and its teams. There are few examples where this is more dramatically demonstrated than with the Blue Angels. John Foley draws upon his experience as Lead Solo of the Blue Angels to inspire audiences and show them how to achieve substantially higher levels of performance.
Foley demonstrates a simple, systematic, yet exciting approach for how to develop the clarity, focus, commitment, and trust necessary to achieve ever-higher levels of performance. He shows how to create buy-in and commitment to a team’s vision and goals, leading to clarity that drives execution decisions. He demonstrates how learning to focus prepares individuals for action and increases successful outcomes. In this insightful program, he emphasizes the development of trust and respect among team members as essential to execution and demonstrates proven ways for teams to achieve deep levels of trust. He also explains a process that he believes is the primary key to continuous improvement and exceptional growth.

He drives home his message with dynamic videos of his adrenaline-pumping performance with the Blue Angels. His charismatic and enthusiastic presentations stimulate audiences emotionally and intellectually with a whole new perspective on their ability to excel. They leave the event not only transformed but also with a set of concrete tools to immediately begin a high-performance climb.

 

Employee Commitment

When people are deeply engaged in their work and feel valued, they are more productive and elective, leading to a positive impact on the bottom line. Foley shares how management can stimulate performance by creating a culture that values expression of gratitude and appreciation—for opportunities, co-workers, and clients. With his signature “Glad to be Here”® mantra, Foley discusses the power of gratitude as a way of thinking, working, and living. He shows how a culture of thankfulness engages employees on an intellectual and emotional level to create deeper commitment and raise levels of performance.

 

Team Oneness

The importance of teams being in sync is a concept that Foley understands profoundly. The Blue Angels must be closely aligned in thought and action in order to accomplish their mission. Through their interdependence as a team, members challenge and stimulate each other to achieve higher levels of team and individual performance. In this dynamic presentation, Foley addresses the essential elements of exceptional team performance and makes them relevant, simple, and immediately actionable. He shares how to center a team around shared goals, strengthen relationships, and create a unity that leads to consistent and elective results.

Overall his speech went well and the audience enjoyed him. The issue was he completely disregarded time, went 35mins over and was quite frankly rude to the leader/owner of the meeting, who tried to have him wrap up.
