Mark King (Exclusively WSB)

In any flat market there are companies that shrink and those who grow. As everyone knows during such times there is only one way to grow: Take market share from your competitors. This is precisely what TaylorMade did under Mark King’s leadership. From 2000 to present day, golf has been a no-growth market. During that time TaylorMade quadrupled its size from 300 million to 1.2 billion dollars and continues to show solid growth. One of Mark’s core beliefs centers around the concept of growth as a cultural mindset that must be infused into the bloodstream of the organization at every level. It is the leader’s responsibility to establish this and be a tireless promoter of it.

Key Ideas:

  • Vision and strategy are meaningless without a fully engaged staff
  • Set goals and challenge people to drive the “How.” The results will astound you
  • Create an environment where people have a sense of belonging
  • Creating energy and changing minds ultimately drives sustainable results
  • Change the rules of the game

Mark King (Exclusively WSB)

Many people in business today are thrown into leadership positions with very little training. Companies and workforces are more complex than ever before, merging Baby Boomers with Millennials and telecommuters with flexible work spaces. Environments and marketplaces are changing rapidly and competition is fierce. Companies cannot afford to have processes or bureaucracy blocking their path to greatness and must create a free-thinking environment to inspire people to compete. Mark shares with his audiences how to inspire a workforce of creativity and confidence to grow at a rapid pace and create things consumers won’t believe is possible. He talks about coming to work with big dreams and driving vision and energy so your people can create things the world has never seen before.

Key Ideas:

  • Understand the effect your leadership can have.
  • Pick something you can win at. Set outrageous goals.
  • Distribute leadership and encourage shared ownership of your company’s future.
  • Set out on a journey of challenging the status quo and allow success to happen.
  • People who achieve success have one thing in common: confidence.
  • Instill the belief that everyone can make a difference.

 

Mark King (Exclusively WSB)

The secret to the future isn’t doing what you’ve done in the past better. The secret is creating new and different things the world has never seen before. If you want to continue to play by the rules of the marketplace or play by the rules of the industry nothing much is going to change. You can get incrementally better. You can get tighter focused. You can execute better. But if you want to do something extraordinary, you have to rewrite the playbook. Growth is not predicated by market conditions, competitors or customers. You are responsible for your own growth and changing the trajectory of your company and industry. Growth is a mindset which, once instilled into the bloodstream of an organization, is infectious beyond belief. Mark tells his story of transforming the adidas culture in America to create a new kind of energy and enthusiasm for a 60+ year-old brand. Recognizing people as thinkers and not just doers allowed a complete transformation of a well-established corporate culture. Mark talks about competing in today’s world where consumers look forward, not backwards and how – to constantly reinvent yourself – you must engage your people.

Key Ideas:

  • Change the rules of the game.
  • Set goals and challenge people to drive the “how.” The results will astound you.
  • Extraordinary people prepare for opportunities they don’t even know exist.
  • Drive constant idea generation and don’t wait for perfection.
  • Experiment! Be courageous.
  • Mindset is everything: believe you can and you can.
  • Create an environment of open-thinking

Major Dan Rooney, USAF (Exclusively WSB)

Speaking with conviction and as a man who has also found success in the military, philanthropy and professional golf, Rooney’s life experiences demonstrate lessons of faith, teamwork, trust, compassion and triumph.

From the outside, flying an F-16 jet looks like a very independent act, as it’s one pilot maneuvering one plane. But when you go into combat, fighter pilots in a squadron must form one unit that has a common mission working toward a common objective. As a pilot who served three tours of combat in Iraq, Major Dan Rooney knows the importance of working as a team when the stakes could not be higher. In his powerful presentations, Rooney highlights the importance of personal accountability, working together and ultimately having the backs of your team when you are on the line. Having dedicated his life’s mission to founding and running Folds of Honor—a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to the spouses and children of military service members disabled or killed in action—Rooney speaks with authority as someone who lives his life in service of those who have served.

Major Dan Rooney, USAF (Exclusively WSB)

When Major Dan Rooney started the Folds of Honor foundation above his garage in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in 2007, little did he know that what started as a way to never forget the sacrifices of those who serve would turn into a movement that has caught the attention of millions across the country. With no experience in philanthropy but with a driving determination to do right by the families of the injured or fallen from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Rooney has embarked on growing Folds of Honor into a nationally-recognized charity that has raised over $100 million and awarded nearly 13,000 educational scholarships. Using the lessons he has learned in building a vibrant organization, Rooney shares his journey as a social entrepreneur and how partnerships have helped his organization grow by leaps and bounds—including his own multi-platform partnership with Budweiser that has expanded Folds of Honors reach both in extending their brand and raising money. An inspiring and innovative leader, Rooney shows how any organization can do well by supporting the common good.
