The key to building a high powered organization that encourages innovative thinking, loyalty to the mission, and a relentless commitment to excellence lies with its leadership.

In this high energy workshop, I highlight the difference between managing people, and leading them to be responsible, empowered, and confident wingmen.

An organization that leads to win has four distinct characteristics:

  • Shared Vision
  • Each and every wingman in the organization knows exactly what they are fighting for. They are committed to the mission, and understand exactly how their unique role in the organization is essential to its success.
  • Integrity, accountability, mutual respect, and teamwork serve as the foundation for all relationships internally with co-workers, and externally with partners and clients. Effective Communication Leaders listen aggressively and communicate their vision with passion. They promote open communication and connect with the heart and soul of their wingmen.

    Successful leaders command flawless preparation, not flawless execution! They encourage their wingmen to expand their capabilities, and consistently reward high performers who take calculated risks and ‘push the envelope’ in order to grow.

    What results is a more productive and efficient organization with superior morale that can rapidly overcome challenges in a competitive marketplace.

    Be prepared!! As a Leadership Speaker, my workshop is high-energy and engaging, and details a customized leadership flight plan that your organization can employ tomorrow!

    This program can be delivered via a one-hour leadership keynote or a half-day leadership workshop.

    Lead with Courage, Build Trusting Partnerships, and Reach New Heights in Business
    Flying solo? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff. You have managers. You have suppliers, vendors, and distributors. And you have colleagues, family members and significant others. By committing yourself to excellence and placing your trust in those around you, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing your trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to your customers and team, there is no mission you can’t complete!

    Lt. Col. Rob “Waldo” Waldman, The Wingman, overcame a lifelong battle with claustrophobia and a fear of heights to become a combat decorated Air Force fighter pilot and highly successful businessman, entrepreneur, and New York Times bestselling author. His motto is Winners Never Fly Solo! Through his captivating personal stories and high energy videos, learn how you, like a fighter pilot, can succeed in highly competitive and demanding environments.

    Discover how to prepare diligently for every mission; employ loyal wingmen to promote integrity and mutual support; and lead your team with courage, compassion and conviction. Be inspired to take to the skies knowing that you have wingmen to help you face challenges and change with confidence while maximizing your potential in all aspects of your life.

    How to Build a Culture of Courage in Business and Life

    How can you instill a climate of ownership in your organization so that every person feels like they are accountable and responsible for its success?

    What tools can you employ to motivate the members of your organization to focus on the mission rather than themselves?

    How can you help create an organization where change and innovation are not met with fear, but embraced with courage and respected as a tool to beat the competition?

    The key to building a high performing organization that encourages innovative thinking, loyalty to the mission, effective communication, and a relentless commitment to excellence lies with its leadership. In this high energy, multimedia workshop, Waldo highlights the difference between managing people and leading them to be responsible, empowered and confident wingmen! What results is a more productive and efficient organization with superior morale that can rapidly overcome challenges in a competitive marketplace.
