We all know people who live with great passion, Often, we assume it’s part of their genetic makeup. It’s one of the worst assumptions we make. Fact is, passion has little to do with genetics. Passion is molded by experience. And our level of passion can be radically shifted.
Fact # 1: Most behavioral psychologists will tell you that the greatest single attribute influencing stellar achievement is that individual’s level of passion.
Fact # 2: Unfortunately, many individuals and leaders have little knowledge about how to nurture passions’ potential within themselves or in the people they manage.
Fact # 3: David Okerlund’s new keynote, “Powering Passion” teaches us what passion is, the power it generates, and how to internalize and nurture passion’s energy.
Charles Kettering, founder of Delco and head of research for General Motors from 1920 to 1947, once offered one of the greatest quotes ever on achievement. This renowned American inventor, engineer, businessman, and holder of 186 patents stated, “Nothing ever arose to touch the skies unless at least one person thought it could, at least one person thought it should, and at least one person willed it must.” The “could” is the dream. The “should” is the belief in the dream. And the “must” is the unrelenting passion for bringing that dream to fruition.
David asks his potential clients this pivotal question: “Knowing passion is the critical key to success, have you ever presented a program focused on unleashing passion’s power in your people?” If not, here’s your opportunity with an International Hall of Fame speaker.
In “Powering Passion,” David reveals the two critical steps necessary. First, he galvanizes our understanding of what passion is and how it helps ordinary people achieve extraordinary results. How an ordinary hockey team achieved the greatest upset in Olympic history. How an ordinary basketball team defeated perhaps the best basketball team to ever play in the a983 NCAA National Finals. And what compelled two ordinary sisters to reign over the tennis world together, winning thirty Grand Slam titles and twelve Wimbledon crowns between them.
Second, he provides specific tools your people can implement to enhance their personal and professional passion. Each attendee will be presented with a handbook to guide them through a fourteen-day self-development program. Why? Because David knows how important it is to encourage and support people who are working to make a significant change.
Do you want to fire up your audience with a powerful send-off keynote or a great opening tone-setter for your next event? Do you wonder if David could do that for you? Then consider this:
“I’ve been rating speakers for associations for nearly ten years and rate them on over twenty different aspects of professionalism. I have never given a speaker a perfect score until I heard David take the stage at the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies’ conference in Minneapolis. Absolutely every person in the audience was mesmerized by both the content of his message and his incredible style of delivery!”
