Focus on the Good Stuff: The Power of Appreciation - Inspire success, engagement and perspective by being appreciative.
Appreciation is one of the most powerful, yet overlooked aspects of successfully motivating and empowering people and teams.

Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken: The Power of Authenticity Create trust, confidence and team unity by being real
Authenticity is fundamental to relationships, communication, and success. Now more than ever, people, leaders, and teams must utilize the power of authenticity in order to build trust, resolve conflicts, and create cohesion. Some fascinating research in the field of emotional intelligence is proving that being real, honest, and even vulnerable are key elements to success and engagement. Through this program, which is based on the core principles of his book, Be Yourself, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how authenticity impacts relationships, trust, and productivity.

Nothing Changes Until You Do - Navigate change and enhance resilience by taking ownership
Wherever we go in life, there we are. The one constant in the midst of all of the change, stress, and uncertainty we face in business and life is us. When we take ownership and responsibility for our experience, we not only make it easier to navigate the changes we face, we can empower ourselves and those around us to be authentically successful, regardless of the circumstances. This program, which is based on the core principles of Mike Robbins’ latest book, Nothing Changes Until You Do, illustrates exactly how individuals, leaders, and teams can thrive in the midst of change.

Creating a Championship Team - Enhance loyalty, attitude, & success by doing what winning teams do
A “championship team” is a group of people who can effectively handle adversity and conflict, trust one another, communicate clearly and authentically, and appreciate each other in a positive way. In this program, which is based on key principles from all three of Mike Robbins’ books, as well as his background as a college and professional baseball player, he teaches people, leaders, and groups the fundamental aspects of creating successful teams that truly win.
