B.O.L.D. Leadership:

Our world has a leadership deficit, and now is the time to fill it. B.O.L.D. leaders are entrepreneurs and franchisees trailblazing the future through ground breaking leadership. For over 20 years, Kathleen Wood has been a trusted advisor to hundreds of entrepreneurs and founders.  In her practice, she has been able to identify four key characteristics that separated leaders who had big dreams and leaders who transformed their dreams to reality.

B.O.L.D. has two meanings.  First, it represents the four key characteristics of leadership necessary to build a successful business.  Second, B.O.L.D. leadership is a rallying cry for a new generation of leaders to rise up and boldly lead their businesses with courage and conviction.

Are you ready to declare your independence from outdated leadership philosophies? Are you ready for your leaders to take charge and break through the sea of sameness? Are you ready to do what it takes to stand up and stand out in your marketplace?

  • Why B.O.L.D Leadership is a Game-Changer.

  • B.O.L.D. Leadership - 4 Keys for Building a Championship Business

People don’t quit jobs, they quit bosses. Some may say this is new news and others will say this has always been true. According to Gallup’s 2015 engagement survey, only 33% of U.S. workers were engaged in their jobs. In 2015, Millennials became the largest generation in the US workforce and yet only 28% are currently ‘engaged’ in the workforce. Otherwise said, almost 70% of the workforce is NOT engaged in the workplace. 

With those levels of engagement, how do you increase productivity?  How do gain operational efficiency?  How do you rally your team to do more with less? In today’s competitive marketplace, team productivity is one area of the business that still has unlimited opportunities for innovation.

If you are tired of the statistics, frustrated by the lack of productivity and looking for a new engine to drive team productivity, this is one keynote essential for connecting people, productivity and profits. High Productivity Teams is not an idea, concept or philosophy it is THE platform for leaders to lead their teams to new levels of productivity and profitability.

Are you ready to build your business with positive and productive team members?  Are you ready to accelerate your team’s success? Are you ready to engage more than 30% of your workforce?  Are you ready to do what it takes to stand up and stand out in your marketplace?

This keynote goes where no other speaker has ever gone:

  • Create powerful teams, at any level of your organization, without traditional “teambuilding” activities.

  • Turn your existing operations team into a dream team of engagement, productivity and kicking ass.

  • Learn the six most powerful steps for creating fired up and engaged teams.

  • Create a sustainable return on your team’s productivity to kick ass in operational excellence and bottom line results.
