Stay In It!
It doesn’t matter if you are sweeping floors, head of IT, regional manager, salesperson, customer service representative or the CEO of the company; when you are driven to be the best at what you do, everything changes for the better. You not only perform better, you feel better, enjoy your work more, walk taller and become a better person. No matter what your job title, how long you have been at your job or what kind of challenges you face, it’s imperative to work at being the best in the world at your job. This is what the Stay In It program is all about: never accepting average, always driven to achieve excellence and become the best at what you do. Through 7 very compelling steps, Darin Green shows his audiences the enormous benefits of staying in it to win it! This re-energizing program is full of practical insights and tools that will help your team raise their performance standards and their performance to the highest level.

When you stop improving, innovating and accept mediocrity, you have dropped out of the game of life. When you choose this route, you can expect nothing but the worst because you have given up the greatest gift of all: life purpose and the power to improve yourself by striving to become the best at what you do. Difficult times and daily routines can cause you to lose the drive for being the best at what you do. Stay In It! re-energizes and reawakens the passion for excellence that is necessary to create the highest version of yourself and move from average to outstanding! The transformation starts with knowing what type of attitude and work philosophy you currently have. What type of attitude and work philosophy will it take to cultivate excellence, and what type of attitude and work philosophy do you want? Stop making excuses. Set a new attitude goal, create an empowering work philosophy, take action using the 7 Stay In It steps, and enjoy the journey.

Using a highly passionate, direct approach, Darin motivates, enlightens and entertains the audience. His dynamic delivery and eye-opening content captivates and engages any audience. Each audience member takes home new tools, motivation and practical steps that will help them incorporate Darin’s message into everyday life. Darin challenges each person to take a hard look at their attitude, work philosophy and results and determine if they are conducive to striving to be the best. The objective of this program is for each person to improve their performance and maintain the drive for excellence and being the best at what they do.

We all experience setbacks, disappointments, broken dreams, growing older, change, and living in volatile, uncertain times. These circumstances can be a recipe for low morale and mediocre performance. It’s essential to know how to transcend life circumstances – and Stay In It! Using Darin’s seven steps that are based on high achievers throughout history, Darin resuscitates his audience from a mediocre, average performance.

Stay In It! generates the drive for excellence. Morale will increase while pessimism and excuses decrease. This inspiring, engaging presentation is great for an opening or closing keynote and or concurrent sessions.

Anything is possible!
Creating The Highest version of yourself!
Research studies have proven that optimistic people in every industry and profession are better leaders, team workers and managers. It is now scientifically proven that optimistic people are harder and smarter workers than those who are pessimists. They are also healthier and live longer lives, even though they work more than pessimistic people. A pessimistic attitude severely hinders a person’s ability to achieve peak performance. This seems rather obvious. Yet, many organizations fail to take serious action to help the people in their organizations learn the skills to create an optimistic mindset.

Through consistent optimistic expansion, we align ourselves with the creative power of our mind that gives as the ability to go up, over, around and through any setback, disappointment, conflict or problem and take our performance and life to the next level. This is what the Anything Is Possible program is all about: never accepting a problem or challenge as unchangeable and pervasive. Doing everything we can right where we are with what we have at the present time to create a higher level of performance and create the highest version of ourselves. It’s about no limitations or excuses. This program generates a negative-free mindset. You will learn 3 powerful steps that will have your audience well on their way to increasing and maintaining an optimistic attitude that unleashes untapped potential and creativity and helps create performance excellence.

When it comes to performance excellence, optimism is everything. When we truly believe that anything is possible, we become in alignment with our human potential and power. We become fully alive and it improves all aspects of our lives. People who are optimistic & confident:

  • believe that they can do anything they put their mind to. They believe they can improve their performance and be one of the best at what they do.
  • are less likely to blame others and give up the first time something goes wrong.
  • are more creative and see the possibilities and opportunities that other people do not.
  • are unbreakable and get excited about overcoming challenges rather than discouraged by them. They bounce back more quickly after failure or rejection.
  • are exceptional leaders and inspire the people around them towards a shared vision or goal.
  • adjust to change more easily and aren't afraid to learn new things.

There has been countless studies on optimism, and they all come to the same conclusion that optimism is good for our health! Optimists have less stress, live longer and perform better in all areas of life.

Change Happens. Winners Adjust!
To improve in any area of business or life, change must occur. With mergers, acquisitions, re-engineering, re-strategizing, re-focusing, and difficult economies the era of predictability is over. Add to the mix the shortening time span of the surprise of change and the fact that change is the new business norm. Almost all industries and organizations are constantly forced to do more with less and continually improve process and product. What this all means is that everyone in your organization must embrace change.

In Change Happens, Winners Adjust!, the turnaround and enlightenment start with a self audit of your change-adeptness. Learn three things you can do to immediately become more adept at mastering the change process. Darin shows you how to gain control of yourself during times of change and how to control change instead of change controlling you.

Successful people and organizations are those that initiate and embrace change! Yet most people view change as a setback, and by doing so attract frustration, fear, difficulty, and failure. Change Happens and Winners Adjust! empowers and shows your people how to become change-adept professionals who are resilient and not only survive change, but flourish in changing times. Darin gives the audience step-by-steps tools and practical information they can use immediately to bring about lasting, healthy individual and organizational change.

Administrator Super Charge
Revitalized, Recommitted and Ready
Stress prevention and management are a critical piece of professional development for principals and administrative teams. It is an important tool for school reform. Principals with extraordinary leadership skills have learned that taking time for their own professional development is not taking time from their schools. It is a major part of taking a school and district to the next level. When administrators feel amazing, their leadership is amazing. This is why the first priority for extraordinary leadership is taking good care of a very important person in the building – called you.

Like many professions, it is not always easy to see that the joys of being a principal far outweigh the frustrations and difficulties. Being a principal is often a stressful and lonely job. There is only one principal in a building, and everyone brings them their problems. Often a principal has no nearby peers to offer support to help them function effectively and assimilate quickly to a host of these types of challenging experiences, responsibilities, and duties: Unfunded mandates. Increasing expectations on the state level, but decreasing assistance. Not having the resources to be effective at the job.

Carrying out rules and laws made by people who don’t understand public schools, who have never taught in a classroom before nor have ever seen how out-of-control behavior can disrupt learning. New rules and mandates, adding to the paperwork and taking away time from staff, students and parents.

Budget or staffing constraints or the lack of community support, which, in turn, results in further loss of community support, staffing, and budgeting.

A shortage of quality teachers and underfunded federal and state mandates for improving aging facilities.

Families who do not value education and/or support their school’s efforts.

Losing students who have the potential to excel. When a student, for whatever reason, decides that their education is no longer important and leaves school without a diploma.

Negative staff who consistently spread negative energy to the other staff members and refuse to buy into things that would have a positive impact on student achievement.

Staff who accept mediocrity and are not living up to their potential.

Teacher Super Charge

Students who are Technophiles who get bored easy
Cyberbullying bulling carried into the classroom
