"This was Waldo's second engagement with Lease Plan and each was meaningful and full of passion. Whether he is speaking to Sales, IT or other departments, his 'Never Fly Solo' message is relevant and inspiring at all levels of the organization. His mantra to 'Push it Up!' is the exact message our Leadership team needed to hear as we demand more from ourselves, push our teams to the limit, and strive to sustain organizational greatness."
Nancy D’Amica, Sr. VP and CIO, LeasePlan
Never Fly Solo!
The Power of Partnership to Reach New Heights in Business and Life
Winners Never Fly Solo.
Flying solo in business? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff, co-workers and managers. You have suppliers, vendors, and distributors. And you have colleagues, family and significant others. In today’s super-charged, highly competitive world of rapid and constant change, those who build trust and work as a team will dodge the missiles of business and win.
By committing yourself to excellence and placing trust in others, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to your clients, partners and co-workers, there is no business mission you can’t complete!
This keynote is not about relating combat tactics to winning in business.
Rather, it’s about focusing on what really matters in business – building high performance, trusting teams and fully serving your customers and co-workers. It’s about winning with integrity in highly competitive environments through disciplined training, dedicated teamwork, and courageous leadership.
