Attitude, mental toughness and the ability to change and adapt quickly are just a few characteristics that all champions possess. As a member of the Nebraska 1994 National Championship football team (considered by some as one of the best teams ever assembled), Aaron has a keen understanding of what it takes to achieve incredible results.

“Attitude of a Champion Leader”

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”!

“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 be reminded of the importance of doing the fundamentals everyday in order to achieve incredible results in the field!
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!

Presentation Outcome:

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!
Individuals will be reminded to look at their customers as relationships rather than callous transactions.

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 will rejuvenate, refuel and remind listeners of the importance of being 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)?

Individuals will learn tips on being persuasive & use their influence effectively.

“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!

Athletes will learn more about how “each” person on the team plays a crucial role in overall success!

“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!

This presentation evokes both laughter and emotion. Using his personal stories and those from students across the country, Aaron challenges students to THINK about the impact of their choices.

It seems like every day there is a new form of leadership being talked about. It’s no wonder today’s young people are so confused on what makes a good leader.

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 opportunities.

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.

Presentation Outcomes:

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.
