Stepping Up to the Plate™:
Getting the Job Done through Positive Accountability™

Positive Accountability™ is about creating a culture where everyone in the organization is proactively Stepping Up to the Plate™ to achieve clearly defined results. They Know About It, Care About It, Figure It Out, and Make It Happen.™

Leading for Peak PERFORMance:
7 Tools for Successful Goal Achievement

To PERFORM™ at your peak means being in control of your professional and personal life. It means having a strong sense of purpose and establishing clear goals and expectations. It requires knowing how you are doing, how you can improve, and how to reward and renew yourself.

It's About Time:
Increasing Personal Productivity by Focusing on What Matters Most

How we manage our time reflects our values, our priorities, and our skills. It has a direct bearing on our success, both professionally and personally. Your life, career, and happiness are at the mercy of time. "Time is the stuff that life is made of." (Ben Franklin)

The Challenge of Change:
Getting through the Tough Times and Coming Out on Top

Change may be inevitable, necessary, and for the best, but it's rarely popular. Navigating and managing change isn't easy and can be stressful for almost everyone. Too often, people resist change or mismanage it, which can have a strong adverse effect on their morale and productivity.

Speak Up and Be Heard:
How to Present Yourself So People Will Listen

Have you ever felt frustrated that people just aren't hearing you? Is it them or you? Yes, people are in a hurry; memos are too long; email is overwhelming, and the average person's attention span is only about 30 seconds. But they are listening to someone. It might as well be you.

We Are Climbers, All (based on Tom's book of positive and uplifting poetry)

Do the challenges of Learning, Loving, and Living sometimes seem insurmountable? Find some inspiration, clarity, and encouragement in We Are Climbers, All, a unique compilation of 30 of Tom's inspiring poems. In this motivational performance-based presentation, Tom shares several of his thought-provoking poems and interprets with the audience the key messages that help people open their hearts and stay focused on what matters most.

This Is The Moment (based on inspiring Broadway show tunes)

We all sometimes get stuck in the past or obsess over the future. The only real moment we have is the "precious present." The messages and motivation of Broadway show tunes come alive in this exciting performance-based presentation. Tom taps both his vocal and literary interpretation talents to bring to his audience a message of joy and abundance.
