CORPORATE & ASSOCIATION PROGRAMS

“Attitude of Championship Teams”
Championship Teams have NO “BENCHWARMERS” (Teamwork)
It’s impossible to obtain any sort of long-lasting success without the
help of others. Championship teams don’t just preach teamwork; they
cultivate and foster it every day so it permeates their entire
organization. Aaron shares the best practices of successful teams and

How championship leaders lead with passion, purpose and love for their people.
Leadership is simple, but it’s not easy. Aaron had the opportunity to
be coached by one of the greatest college football coaches of all-time.
Dr. Tom Osborne was the head football Coach at the University of
Nebraska Lincoln for over thirty-years. His winning percentage was over
80% with three National Championships. What was more impressive was the
legendary leadership style that he consistently modeled to his
assistant coaches, players and administration. Why was his leadership
style so successful? It all started with his “Attitude”!

Individuals will learn that it’s acceptable to treat people differently as long as you treat them equally & fair.

“Attitude of a Champion Sales Professional”
Today’s sales professional lives in a world of constant change &
sometimes chaos! Big win’s and sometimes big loses! The key factor that
keeps the Champion sales professional at the top of their game is not
their database or connections or any other “outside” factor; the key
factor is an inside job! It’s their Champion Attitude!
Individuals will learn the type of Attitude that is necessary to be a Champion Sales Professional!

their prospects but more importantly; give the customer an opportunity

Individuals will be reminded that when people buy they aren’t buying
the product or service; they are buying the sales professional!
“Attitude of a Championship Customer Service”
Customer service is one of the most crucial areas of any enterprise but
often the most overlooked. Companies get busy with product development,
making more sales, hiring new people etc. But in all of this activity
there is another activity going on…I call it the silent business
killer…poor customer service. Aaron share’s how customer service isn’t
a department in your company; rather it’s the attitude of everyone in
the entire organization! An attitude of “sincerely” caring about the
very people who keep you in business…the customer!
Individuals will be reminded of how a Caring attitude is the first step to championship customer service.
Individuals will learn tips & techniques that can be applied
immediately to help reinforce the importance of treating each customer
as a guest in their home!

Be GREAT at School but Save Your BEST for HOME!
This presentation is for everyone in your building from the cafeteria team to the counselors office.
Teachers are often faced with many challenges such as teacher per
student ratios, state testing, requirements to do more with less and
the list goes on, but they still LOVE TO TEACH! Like any career, some
stresses and challenges are part of the territory. These are big
issues, but so is the number of educators and administrators that
simply burn out as a result of giving their best at school and leaving
only leftovers for their home and personal lives. This presentation

GREAT at school and saving their BEST for HOME!

Teaching is Great Except for the Students, Their Parents & Some of My Teammates” (How Champions deal with difficult people)
Ever find yourself struggling to keep your sanity and temper when
dealing with some of your students and their parents (occasionally one
of your teammates/co-workers)?

“Attitude of Champion High school teams/teammates”
ALL championship high school athletic teams share similar traits that
consistently keep them performing at a high level! Most people simply
see the cutting down of the nets or the victory laps and award
ceremonies that follow victorious performances. But there is way more
to it! There are key forces at work within that team way before the
whistle blows that give them the Champions Advantage!

“Attitude of Champion Coaches”
I had the privilege to play college football for one of the most
decorated & successful football coaches in history! Dr. Tom Osborne
created a culture of excellence off the field, in the locker room &
on the field of play! His attitude towards his players, assistant
coaches and all within the program created a college football dynasty
during his tenure.
This presentation is full of insight; tips & ideas that can help you create a Championship culture in your program as well!
HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE PROGRAMS
The Power of YOUR Choices!
This is Aaron’s most requested keynote for teenagers and college students!

stories and those from students across the country, Aaron challenges

reminds them that a choice takes only seconds to make, but the
consequences can last a lifetime or even take your life or the lives of

Leadership is SIMPLE, but it’s Not Always EASY!

about. It’s no wonder today’s young people are so confused on what
makes a good leader. This presentation gives them simple yet timeless
truths on the characteristics of being an effective leader. Aaron also

The Price of Being a Student Athlete (How to avoid embarrassing your school, family & yourself)
This presentation is one that every student athlete must hear. Student
athletes are making the newspaper with increasing regularity, but
unfortunately they are appearing in the wrong section of the paper.
Instead of the sports pages, they are frequently being mentioned in the
area that lists arrests and court appearances. Aaron shares with
students the realities of being a student athlete and how the “rules”
are different for them compared to other students, and how by failing
to abide by the rules almost assures embarrassment and blown

Don’t Go and Look for a Job. Search for Your Passion!
This session is one that encourages students to passionately pursue the careers they love!
The average adult will have close to a dozen different jobs with
various companies in their working lifetime. One cause for this is that
they simply have a “job” instead of being engaged in a career that they
are passionate about. This presentation challenges students to pursue
and research what their passions truly are.
Students will be encouraged to constantly remain curious and research the areas they are passionate about.
Students will be given strategies to develop skills that make them appealing to potential employers.
Students will be reminded that the choices they make today will affect their future.
