Hero Factor: How Great Leaders Transform Organizations and Create Winning Cultures

Business as usual, bad moods, and mediocre expectations are indicators of a MUCH BIGGER problem! Develop the right culture by knowing why you’re in the game. Understand the essence of your core values. Make sure everyone on your team knows them and more importantly believes in them. Learn to live your brand in everything you do.

Every company ever created started as a story, an idea that inspired other people to join and believe in the cause and over time companies forget and lose that passion. Now more than ever, businesses need to know and own their purpose to survive, transform and win.

Most companies fail to understand and protect their impact overtime. A majority of any given work force doesn’t fully know their company’s values and sense of purpose:

• Only 27% of employees actually know their own company values.

• 51% of employees are disengaged in their current positions. Over half the workforce is currently able to contribute more to their operations.

Know your purpose and lead with your values. Own your Hero Factor!

The Mirror Test

When was the last time you did a mirror test to make sure your company was still alive and breathing? Jeffrey Hayzlett projects his big, boisterous personality when he gets down to business and in your face to ask the questions that most business managers are afraid to ask. And as Jeffrey points out, if you aren’t willing to look at what’s working and what isn’t – and then take the necessary steps to fix them — well, you and your colleagues and employees are in for a tough ride.

Hayzlett will show you all the marketing, management, selling, and customer service techniques you need not only to survive, but to soar ahead of your competition in today’s changing climate.

Running The Gauntlet

Running The Gauntlet is a rough-and-tumble guide for running and driving change through the business gauntlet. Hayzlett addresses what every business leader must face: Getting Ready, Getting Going, and Creating and Sustaining Momentum. Hayzlett shows business leaders and owners how to develop the necessary mental, emotional, and physical toughness they must have for smart, strategic and lasting change.

Hayzlett forces leaders to really get up in their own businesses – to take them over from the inside and drive change – gaining customers and profits in the process. Attendees will be able to efficiently assess what kind of change their business needs and then summon the vision, courage and passion to enact it.

Inspirational Takeaways:

• Develop a “takeover mentality” to execute the right changes and deal with any disruptions they may cause

• Summon the vision and courage necessary for driving change and sustaining your company’s newfound momentum

Think Big, Act Bigger: The Rewards of Being Relentless

The book, and the program, is a take-no-prisoners, no BS, attitude adjustment for those of us who call ourselves entrepreneurs. Following the success of his prime-time show, C-Suite With Jeffrey Hayzlett, companies and events always want to know what is the secret behind the success of entrepreneurs and executives who can move mountains.

“I’ve owned franchises, ran small businesses (and sold over 200 of them), and I have been the CMO of a Fortune 500 company. I’ve learned that in every business and in every industry, limitations exist everywhere – mostly in our minds and in the stories we tell ourselves. Getting past these limitations is hard work. My new book and keynote focus on the attitude we need to overcome the obstacles that face our businesses every day. No one is coming to save us, none of us will win the lottery. Everyone can think big, the art is in acting bigger.” –Jeffrey Hayzlett
