  • OUTPERFORM THE NORM: Raise Your Game

    Today’s competition is brutal and numbers drive everything. The pressure to perform can be suffocating. What are you doing to stay ahead and keep from burning out?

    Join Scott Welle as he shares the peak performance strategies used by high achievers to take your “game” to the next level:

    • Shift ONE word in your vocabulary that can lead to 30% more happiness and fulfillment
    • Unleash sustainable energy, stamina and physical vibrancy – so you are as fresh at 4pm as you are at 8am
    • Implement a 4-step process to thrive through change, personally and professionally
    • Challenge limiting beliefs about your performance standards that may be holding you back
    • Unlock the mindset shift that world-class performers use to get stronger from adversity

    This dynamic, high-energy presentation will help you raise your personal standard of excellence and give you an effortless action plan to put into place immediately.


    Goal setting MAXIMIZES everything you do. It’s like using a GPS - you identify an end destination and then map a route, with exact turn-by-turn directions, to create an estimated time of arrival on how to get there the fastest and easiest.

    If done well, goal setting empowers and creates performance breakthroughs. If done poorly, it demotivates and can potentially destroy a team’s culture.

    Discover how to:

    • Implement a simple 3-step process all Outperformers use to own and smash their goals
    • Stay on track, consistently, even when you’re unmotivated and unfocused
    • Leverage the latest science of habit formation to build “peak performance routines”
    • Avoid the BIG goal setting mistakes most people make (and I’ve made too!) that sabotages their success
    • Compare the value of goals vs. systems in productivity and peak performance

    “Daily Execution. Extraordinary Results.” goes deep into the science of goal achievement, motivation and habit formation. It will change the way you look at your performance and personal potential.

    Legendary leaders aren’t born; they’re made. They have exceptionally high standards, are able to persevere through change and conflict – and have the ability to consistently get the best out of others in working toward a common, shared goal.

    • Cultivate the two things that outperforming leaders use to create a culture of high performance
    • Define your unique leadership traits that make you someone others are dying to follow
    • Cast a compelling vision that your team can rally behind (yes, we ALL need this skill!)
    • Boost performance under pressure, faster and easier – by creating an “Alter Ego”
    • Utilize the three elements legendary leaders use in team communication to maximize performance

    “The Five C’s of Legendary Leadership” dispels the myths around leadership and details what transformational leaders do differently, and BETTER – to raise the game of others.

    This presentation will be customized to the target audience – and delivered in everything from a 60-minute keynote to a full-day workshop.

    This is not theory – it is the science of influence. It goes deep into our biological, ingrained behaviors and giving you the specific insights into how to be more persuasive, online and/or offline – to drive bottom-line sales results.

    • Boost influence by recognizing and pulling the “6 persuasive levers”
    • Shift your communication style to immediately become 93% more effective
    • Leverage the essential “BLT” of persuasion – without feeling slimy or inauthentic
    • Make yourself memorable and magnetic to people around you
    • Uncover the real reason we buy products, ideas, and services (hint: it has nothing to do with price!)

    After hearing this presentation, attendees will have a clear-cut understanding of why people buy from you (or why not) – and be equipped with the sales strategies to be as persuasive and successful as possible.
