    When you’re green you’re growing, when you’re ripe you are rotten!

    ~Frosty Westering


    “Moving to Great” will deepen your understanding of the fundamentals of personal mastery and change enablement. Participants learn time-proven techniques and skills for enhancing personal accountability and helping themselves and others overcome the natural, human resistance to change. “Moving to Great” provides a scientifically sound set of tools that will enable individuals to increase their self-efficacy (the ability to cause and make happen), improve their self-esteem and enhance their ability to set and accomplish bigger and better goals. A result of experiencing “Moving to Great” is a renewed sense of commitment and a greater willingness to seek out and implement new approaches to tackling both personal and organizational challenges.

    We didn’t lose the game; we just ran out of time.

    ~Vince Lombardi

    The goal of every team is to win; no matter the venue or arena of competition, sports or business, the objective is to come out on top. What if there was a better approach that does not involve winning or losing, winning was simply the by-product? The pursuit of excellence is not about winning – it is “More than Winning.” It is giving your very best in pursuit of a goal or worthwhile endeavor bigger than yourself. It is bigger than any one individual and demands your very best.

    “More than Winning” focuses on releasing a team’s potential. This is the result of effectively leveraging the individual strengths for the benefit of the team and the goal. We’ll show you the keys to unlock the potential.
