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.

The Profit Building Relationship
The automotive sales and dealer profit landscape has totally changed. Understanding the relationship dynamics between the client, salesperson, and dealership, are critical elements associated with the sales process. A better understanding of the principles of profit building relationships could make the difference between higher grosses, or walking profits out the door. Today, selling is more about understanding the critical elements of maximizing each team member’s personal performance and productivity. 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.

Managing Life and Stress in a Make-It-Happen Environment
As high performers, many of us navigate a seemingly perpetual state of transition. We often spend more time attempting to solve unsolvable problems for others while neglecting ourselves. As our roles continually expand, the stress associated with these responsibilities can often reach levels that almost seem unbearable. This inspirational session is designed to offer innovative approaches to managing hectic lifestyles and the stress associated with it. Your team will leave motivated and empowered to implement realistic plans for better managing their lives and increased productivity. Regardless of their profession, any team plagued by the frustration accompanied by change or transformation will identify with 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.

Inspiring the At-Risk Student for the New Reality
A strong body of research suggests that the population of developmental students in college classrooms will steadily increase. What can we do to encourage retention and student success in this population? Just promoting them through the system has created casualties of an academic war these students are ill-equipped to fight. In this session, attendees are not only provided different perspectives to view the challenges these students are facing, but recommends more effective ways of inspiring and understanding them.

    “I came from a family of dysfunction, fighting, and turmoil. I had different family members tell me that I couldn’t make it and that I didn’t belong. I am raising six children on my own. It’s hard, but, no matter who you are or what you’ve been through, you can get out of it. I have a 3.8 GPA. Thank you so much for everything. You have no idea how your words and visuals from The Journey workshops, that I've thought about a million and one times, have stuck with me in my darkest hours. You are greatly appreciated, and I'll never forget you! There are so many others out there that need you! Again thanks.”
    --A. Smith

    “I just finished The Journey by Steven LeMons. One thing I really learned from this workshop is vision, success, and taking advantage of opportunities. Often times, I fail at opportunities because I feel that I won’t be successful, but Steven says to take advantage of those opportunities, even if you make mistakes, keep on moving, because that’s what the journey is about. So, for those who haven’t attended The Journey, you have to come. It’s life changing.”
    --J. Royal

    “I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, and I am a non-traditional student. I didn’t quite have a vision for myself, but many other people did. One thing I have learned is that, many times, others can see things inside you that you can’t. If you will only take half the time as I did to listen to Mr. LeMons’ The Journey you will understand and learn things about yourself too that you didn’t know. I believe I have found my vision, through this particular journey.”
    --R. Day

    “I really did not want to attend, but he had me engaged throughout the entire thing. From the music to everything he shared that he went through. He even has a step-by-step plan….a whole journal that you can just follow. I definitely recommend it to anyone.”
