Keynotes

Show Up and Shine!
How to Get the Best Out of Yourself and the People Around You 

Organizations are NOT looking for people who just show up, just do their jobs, and are just satisfied with getting a paycheck. They want leaders and team members who SHOW UP AND SHINE every single day!

Is this a reasonable expectation? Aren’t most people just trying to make it through the day? Can we really expect our people to surprise and delight our customers and the people we serve? 

Absolutely! The truth is most people want to SHOW UP AND SHINE, and Kent will show you how you can lead a high-trust, high-performing team that produces results (and how it's easier than you think).

Results & Benefits

The learning objective is to inspire and equip audience members with the mindset, motivation, and methods of high performance such as:

  • How to open your eyes and see opportunities that are disguised as obstacles 
  • How it takes only 5 seconds to use the #1 resiliency and peak-performance tool that everyone has in their toolbox
  • How to make big leaps forward by taking the small steps right in front of you

If you are looking for a high-energy, entertaining keynote to open your conference or event that will get your people laughing and engaged, this is it! But it's not just a fluff-and-stuff program. Your people will walk out with actionable content that they can implement immediately in their leadership and with their teams. Perfect for associate meetings and personal/professional development events.

Direction Determines Destiny
How to Move from DREAM to DO 

What you believe in is evident by the steps you take, not just by the words you say. This means success in life and business isn’t the result of everything going your way. Instead, true success occurs when you have the ability to turn adversities into advantages. Or to put it another way, in order to win in life or business, you must lead your life instead letting life lead you.

In this inspiring and powerful keynote, Kent shows you how to lead yourself and others in turning your toughest challenges into your best opportunities! 

Results & Benefits

The learning objective is to inspire and equip audience members with the resiliency skills necessary to successfully face challenging situations and/or bounce back after tough setbacks:

  • How to Fail Up instead of falling down after a setback.
  • How to Control Your Spiral — 3 key steps for learning and growing after a mistake or failure.
  • Reliable Resiliency — How resilience requires more than just a "suck it up buttercup"  mindset
  • How to make sure you take a big leap forward after a mistake or failure

This is an excellent program for a closing or mid-conference keynote presentation.

Peak Performance for Real People
How to be a Top Performer in YOUR Real Life and Real World

Have you noticed that many peak-performance experts and productivity speakers live unrealistic lives? The ultra-marathoner who has sponsors so she can train six hours a day, rest-and-recover, and do it all again tomorrow. Or the business executive who has more than a dozen direct reports to whom he delegates all the tasks he doesn’t want to do. How can their strategies connect with people who have real jobs, real schedules, and real work demands?

This inspiring and content-rich presentation empowers real people to become high performers in their real world. By focusing on a principle Kent calls Big is Little and Little is Big, audience members will learn how a handful of doable habits can double, triple, and even quadruple their productivity and results without adding anything extra to their to-do list or adding extra hours to their workweek.

Results & Benefits

The learning objective is to inspire and equip audience members with doable, game-changing productivity strategies powerful such as:

  • How to dump your To-Do List and replace it with something that is simpler and guaranteed to help you focus on what matter most
  • How to double, triple, or even quadruple your productivity and results without adding anything to your to-do list or adding extra hours to your workweek
  • How to use the 3-20 Rule to consistently accomplish your most important goals

Excellent program for a closing or mid-conference keynote presentation. Also works well as a breakout or workshop.

Breakouts/Workshops

From DREAM to DO
Measuring Performance and Productivity with a Better Yardstick 

It’s time to redefine high performance and productivity. Both are usually measured by work rate, output, and yield, which means the focus is on how much is produced. However, if effectiveness is your organization's goal, the yardstick should not only measure how much gets done, but also what gets done. The superiority of a task is as important, if not more important, than the speed.

In this engaging and dynamic workshop, Kent helps you move the performance yardstick from speed to superiority as you discover how to move a high-potential team to a high-performance team.

Results & Benefits

The learning outcome is to engage and equip participants with productivity strategies that are easy to understand and can be apply in real-work situations such as:

  • How to determine the superiority of a task
  • How to double, triple, or even quadruple your productivity and results without adding by anything to your to-do list or adding extra hours to your workweek
  • How to use the Reverse Pareto Principle, your 1% Advantage, and the 3-20 rule to plan your week, quarter, and year

Excellent program for breakouts, half-day, or full-day training.
