An Award-Winner’s Secret Formula To Provoking Greatness In Yourself And Others, Build A Team You’re Consistently Proud Of, And Inspire The Team Of Your Dreams.
Is your career or team going to achieve remarkable success, or will it start off slow and fade away from there?
The start of every business (or business unit/team) is critically important… and every truly successful product or service starts with a group of people committed to clearly defined end goal, or vision.
Unfortunately, most leaders put all their focus on the customer and driving profits, without much thought to the people who drive the profits—their internal customer, or employee.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Since 2005, Misti Burmeister work has helped thousands of leaders eliminate compliancy, drive passion, remove negativity, and foster collaboration and caring throughout companies from industries that span the globe. She has been featured on television, in newspapers, and in magazines from NPR to The Huffington Post.
By leveraging techniques normally reserved for the heroes’ journey, Provoking Greatness reveals how to transform any team player into a highly engaged contributor. You will discover how to understand those you wish to influence, create provocative conversations, and elicit a groundswell response.
With Provoking Greatness, you’ll be able to:
- Leverage the hidden potential inside yourself, and those you wish to influence
- Build a powerful, independent, and innovative team
- Create an environment that supports highly collaborative teams
- Craft a compelling and captivating vision
- Inspire enthusiasm and support for your vision
Now the question is this—are you going to dabble in self-help books, and fade away from there? Or are you ready to change the future of your business and your life?
