Can successful leadership be learned? Legendary professional football coach Brian Billick thinks so. He knows that leadership isn’t some abstract concept, but something that can be learned and understood. In this presentation, based on his book of the same name, Billick shares key principles of effective leadership that can be applied to any competitive situation, showing audiences how to overcome adversity and succeed. In a powerful and engaging presentation, he discusses:

  • The value of creative thinking;
  • How to create your own opportunities;
  • How to inspire confidence in yourself and others.

We live in a society in which individual achievement is the predominant measure of success. As children in school, we are graded individually. At work, our performance is evaluated individually. But in order for organizations to successfully compete, employees must work seamlessly as a team. So, how do employees of an “I” culture let go of an inherent self-interest that permeates the business culture? Perhaps lessons can be drawn from professional sports, where effective teamwork is the only way to win. After coaching collegiate and professional football teams for more than 30 years, Brian Billick is a master at building winning teams. He shares:

  • How to merge a group of “individual contractors” into a functioning team;
  • His method for ensuring that a team strives toward a common goal;
  • Ways to emphasize the primacy of that goal;
  • How to create a “we” environment with a vision that ultimately leads to success.

In the movie North Dallas Forty, a professional athlete laments to his coach, “Every time I call it a business, you call it a game. Every time I call it a game, you call it a business.” Millions of NFL fans watch pro football annually, and the sport grosses billions of dollars each year. Whether you call football a business or a game, money influences how decisions are made. Brian Billick, one of professional football’s most gifted coaches and now a FOX Sports analyst, shares:

  • An assessment of the current dynamics in the NFL;
  • His insights into the future of professional sports amid high-profile business and entertainment pressures;
  • What it is it like to be a critical decision maker in one of the biggest fishbowls.

Rocky Bleier motivates audiences to keep on striving for greater accomplishments. His dynamic style is coupled with real-life stories that are told from a first person perspective. Those stories about his fabled comeback from Vietnam injuries to Super Bowl star are utterly inspiring for their courage and determination. He brings it together with a warm, self-reflective humor that audiences really relate to.

Terry Bradshaw (Exclusively WSB)

At a time when business is experiencing very serious challenges, perhaps it’s time to go back to basics and take a closer look at what makes people successful despite disappointment, adversity and relentless competition. Legendary Hall of Fame Quarterback Terry Bradshaw, a success both on and off the field, shares with audiences his strategies for maintaining success through persistent self-improvement. All of us, he says, want to better ourselves, to learn about ourselves and to apply that learning towards a common goal. Bradshaw invites audiences to think in new ways about sacrifice, pain, competition and adversity, while giving specific examples of how to focus the power of dreaming, thinking and strategizing towards goals and success.

Mike Ditka delivers a powerful presentation that highlights the key characteristics people need to achieve their personal and professional goals. With his first-hand experience, clear illustrations and humorous anecdotes, he shows why he is considered one of the best motivational speakers in all of the NFL. His presentation has impact and immediate, take-home value.
