WAKING UP IN CORPORATE AMERICA: UNLOCKING THE SEVEN SECRETS
With the release of his new book Waking Up In Corporate America:
The Seven Secrets That Opened My Eyes, Eric Pennington takes the
audience on a journey of discovery. Eric defines, in detail, what
each secret is all about, while giving clear direction on how
they can make each secret applicable to their own work life. Whether
it’s a secret on personal branding or living a life of influence,
audience members will be inspired to move their careers and life
to a higher level. This speech topic is also available in a one-day
workshop by the same name.
CHARACTER AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
Our business culture has proven that you can get far with skills.
Whether it’s an advanced degree or knowledge of specific
marketing disciplines, many have reached heights only dreamed
of by others. Sadly, though, that same culture has proven that
a lack of character will ruin our best intentions. How can we
move this lopsided equation between character and skills development
to a balanced state? In his speech on Character and Skills Development,
Eric Pennington shows the audience specific steps every leader
must take to make sure their character and skills are rightly
balanced. Each audience member will come to understand that one
can be highly skilled, and yet be a person of high character.
FINDING YOUR AUTHENTIC SWING
Have you ever wondered if your life and work is authentic? Would
your endeavors pass a lie detector test? As Bagger Vance (from
the motion picture The Legend of Bagger Vance) said, “Judah
might win if he finds his authentic swing.” In this speech
Eric Pennington helps audience members evaluate where they’re
at today and gives specific steps to finding their authentic swing-lost
or never discovered. The audience member will be challenged and
inspired to move to a place they’ve always dreamed of-a
land called Authentic.
THE POWER OF SERVING
In this compelling speech, Eric Pennington shows his audience
that the greatest of us all is the one who serves. Audience participants
will learn why much of corporate America has lost its soul, due
to following a self-serving model. Eric shows those in business-public
or private-that much power comes with serving. Specific steps
are illustrated to show that businesses, communities and education
systems are transformed by embracing the power of serving.
What if risk isn’t the problem? What if risk is something
to be embraced? In a time when our news is full of stories that
portray risk as enemy number one, Eric Pennington reverses our
course and teaches us that risk is your friend and not your enemy.
Each audience member will hear about Eric’s experiences
with risk as a corporate leader and entrepreneur. The audience
will connect with Eric’s inspiring examples of how risk
can be managed in business and life.
What’s In It For You?
Hopefully we’ve kept your attention through the story,
and maybe now you’re wondering what’s in it for you.
Consider the following:
Is your organization a place where customers consider you
a vendor of high character and trust? As we know, people do
business with people they like and trust. Do your internal customers
(your employees) behave with an approach of high character and
trust? The same applies here; employees cooperate/work well
with employees they like and trust. Many organizations lose
sales and increase expenses due to
these types of problems.
If your organization is trying to figure out how to operate from
a position of high character and trust, then select the speech
The Power of Serving and invite Eric to speak
at your organization’s next event.
Would you like your employees to be more authentic? More importantly,
would you like your customers (internal and external) to interact
with employees who are more authentic? Authentic employees are
productive and help organizations grow their bottom line.
If you want more authentic employees, then select the speech
Finding Your Authentic Swing and invite Eric
to speak at your organization’s next event.
Are disengaged employees awake or asleep/dormant? That’s
an easy question to answer; they’re asleep/dormant. According
to the Gallup Organization, 70% of American workers are disengaged
in their daily work habits. This correlates with another statistic
showing that US businesses lose $300 billion in productivity
costs from disengaged employees.
If that describes a problem your organization has, then select
the speech Waking Up In Corporate America: Unlocking the
Secrets and invite Eric to speak at your organization’s
