When you ask Jack Nicklaus to share his life’s lessons, he most certainly recounts indelible moments from his decades-long adventure as a professional golfer. But weaved inside his tales of competitive sport are messages that resonate deep with athletes, business leaders, and mission-driven organizations alike.

From visualizing the next great golf course out of an overgrown field to balancing victory and defeat with the pressure to perform, Nicklaus learned in his time on the green what it means to chase your own potential.

In his journey to greatness, Nicklaus knew he couldn’t go it alone – he relied on his family, and their love and support, as inspiration for his great success. After nearly 60 years of marriage to his wife, Barbara, and having raised five children and 22 grandchildren, Nicklaus proves you can still do what you love when you put the people you love first.

On stage, Nicklaus make a powerful case for his core fundamentals of success – preparation, discipline, and graciousness – all the while lighting up the room with his nostalgic and humble view of dreams come true.

Why are Warren Buffett, Jamie Dimon, Jack Welch, Jeffrey Immelt and so many other top leaders praising David Novak’s upcoming book? Novak, recognized as one of the best-performing CEO’s in the world by Harvard Business Review, runs Yum! Brands—the world's largest restaurant company and parent of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell—with a staggering 1.4 million employees. He learned long ago that you can't lead a great organization of any size—from a tiny startup to a global giant—without getting your people aligned, enthusiastic, and focused relentlessly on the mission. But how do you accomplish that?

As Yum’s chairman and CEO, and as the author of TAKING PEOPLE WITH YOU: The Only Way to Make Big Things Happen, Novak has personally trained thousands of managers with his leadership guide—which has been 15 years in the making and tested on more than 4,000 managers—and is an action plan that challenges leaders to rise to higher levels of performance.

Novak knows that managers in the trenches don't need leadership platitudes or business theories. With a focus on corporate culture, customer relations and employee empowerment that enabled him to grow Yum! Brands globally, Novak cuts right to the chase and shares the secrets of the unique leadership program he’s developed in easy-to-follow steps: setting big goals, getting your people on board, blowing past your targets, celebrating together after you shock the skeptics, and doing it again and again until consistent excellence becomes a core element of your culture. Highly engaging and motivated, Novak inspires teams—from front line to front office—while delivering a specific process to help organizations achieve growth.
