Keynote Address
Through stories about his players, Greg provides vivid and heartfelt images that cut through the audiences normal defenses. Then with precision he builds from these by connecting the principles of success which transcend sports that these stories convey — how each of us struggle to adapt to change.

His message is consistent; success is not found in avoiding difficulties that are thrust upon us, but by entering into them and with the right approach, transforming the event, ourselves and all those connected to that event.

Programs include Keynote Address, Training Sessions and Workshops. The Keynotes focus on the topics "It's Not Fair", "Staggered Perfection", "The Change-Process", "Bonding in the New" and "The Power of a Daily Cycling Goal". The trainings and workshops focus expand on these same concepts and can be used as a stand alone or in conjuction with one another.

"It's Not Fair":
Greg shows that our thoughts about fairness are so powerful that often, without us knowing, they influence our decisions in such a way that they work against and even defeat our goals. Through stories about his players he shows that rather than allow fairness and unfairness to derail our goals, once we are aware of its influence, we can actually enter into the unfairness and use its transforming power to reach our goals. In the process we transform all those connected to this event and escape the all powerful goal killer, "It's not fair".

"Staggered Perfection":
Why do we fall short of our goals? It is usually because we have diconnected the goal from the daily process we use to attain the goal. And we create this disconnect by adding excuses into the daily process. Although this may give us some margin for error in case we fail, it also prevents us from reaching our goal. As each day passes this margin continues to add up. Then at the point where we should have arrived at our goal, we find ourselves far short of it. Standing between us and our goal is the margin we built in the daily process; our excuses.

In this presentation Greg shares stories of teams and players who, even in the face of tremendous odds and personal tradgedy attain their goals. The common ingredient that made this possible was they each used the process of "Staggered Perfection" to reach their goals.

"The Change-Process":
Any time we set a goal as an individual, a group or a company, this goal by its nature requires change. We are at point "A" and want to get to point "B" and this movement demands some form of change. Thus whatever goal, methodology, process or system we employ, no matter how accurate or powerful it may be, it will not be successful unless we manage the Change-Process necessary to implement it and reach the destination.

"Bonding in the New":
Bonding in the New deals with a simple, but powerful reason we often fall short of our goals. There is a natural tendency to hold onto the old and familiar rather pursue the "New" that is part of our goal. To stay in the familar means to cancel our goal. To grasp our goal means we must "Bond in the New".

Through stories of a team that had to deal with tremendous change — Eight seniors graduating, nine new players, a new coach, a new offense, a new defense, a new discipline system and the loss of three players in a tragic car accident — this team struggles because they are holding onto what they have lost. But this all changes when one player steps up with a simple goal that empowers the players to "Bond in the New". The results are awe inspiring.

Many among the faculty, staff, administration and even most of the parents simply want the team to survive the year. But once this simple goal is shared by one of the players, the team "Bonds in the New" and is instantly transformed. The results are a team that not only set a school record for the most wins in a season, but a team that empowers one of their teammates to reach one of the most difficult achievements in all of sports.

"A Daily Cycling Goal":
It is a simple truth that the longer the duration of your goal, the less likely you are to reach that goal. Goals that are one month in duration are less effective than goals that are one week in duration; and one week goals are less effective than daily goals. The most effective goals are those that are broken down into a cycling goal. This could be from "event to event" or it could be a "Daily Cycling Goal". Through real-life stories Greg shows the power of a daily cycling goal.

Training Worshop Change Process
The trainings and workshops focus on key concepts that are needed to successfully navigate the Change-Process. In a series of stories about his players that are at times humorous and also poinent Greg is able to walk an audience through each "change-concept" that could be a stumbling block to successfully reaching a goal.

Each change-concept is summerized for audience members to ponder. Then a player story that deals with the concept is shared. Once the actions of the player has broken through the normal defenses audience members often use to rationalize their behavior, a similar story from a business or non-profit is shared and connected. The concept is then summerized again. This process is continued for each change-concept.

A sample of some of the Change-Concepts in this training:

      1. Start Swinging with Your Regular Swing
        Pursuit of perfection often prevents beginning the journey to the goal.
      2. Take Feeling Out of It
        What makes you uncomfortable may be the key ingredient needed for success.

Each presentation is cusomized based on the needs and goals of the audience.

Target Audience Keynote Training
Naturally because the stories and illustrations Greg uses are about athletes and sport they appeal to anyone who has an interest in sports or anyone who has a son or daughter playing sports.

But even beyond this, what makes the stories so powerful, even for those without interest is sports, is the stories are about female athletes from the ages of 10 to the collegiate level, that in many cases are dealing not only with the challenges that their sport brings but also challenges beyond sports and the field of play. Whether it is a broken home, diabetes, disabling migraine headaches, Lupus, chemotherapy or even the death of teammates and friends, these stories speak to all types of audiences.
