Nothing Happens Until You Get the Ball
Has everyday become more of the same? Does your team seem to find themselves just going through the motions? Have they lost their ability to get fired up? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the bigger challenge may be, “How can you put power and passion back into what once motivated and inspired your team?” This highly interactive and inspirational session is designed to transform perspectives and lives utilizing metaphors from one of America’s favorite pastimes; sports! Steven highlights the rules of the game and why having the proper equipment is crucial to achieving high levels of success both on the field and in the game of life. He also underscores that regardless of the game, most contact sports cannot be played without the most essential element; the ball. Steven demonstrates how the connection between sports, the game of life, and success often mirror each other, and how the goal in both is always the same—to win.

Understanding the relationship dynamics between the client, salesperson, and dealership, are critical elements associated with the sales process.

But what are the major keys to effective productivity, time utilization, and higher gross profits? The answer could be in building stronger more effective relationships. Relationships are essential to additional sales and higher gross profit. If your team’s productivity is lacking and you’re feeling it in your bottom line, they could benefit from this session.

Breaking Free: Moving Beyond the Chain of Generational Poverty
Every year across the country, a high percentage of minority students enroll in college, yet fall off the educational radar before graduating. Why is it that many of these students stumble and fall back into the dismal yet intolerable situation they desperately desire to escape rather than successfully tap into the rich reservoirs of power existing within themselves to achieve their goals? In this masterfully executed session, Steven takes both faculty and students on a real-world journey that explores factors that contribute to low completion and dropout rates, and provides essential tools for assisting generational game-changers to break free and uncover their true potential.
