Actioneering TM: Good intentions are worthless... Only action matters

Albert Einstein used to say, “Before anything happens we’ve got to do something”. It sounds simple, but the fact is that more businesses die for lack of action than for any other reason. Good intentions do not produce results. Only action does. Big dreams and great ...

Albert Einstein used to say, “Before anything happens we’ve got to do something”. It sounds simple, but the fact is that more businesses die for lack of action than for any other reason. Good intentions do not produce results. Only action does. Big dreams and great expectations, by themselves, do not increase productivity or improve performance unless they are backed by swift and decisive action.

Actioneering is the science of translating your dreams, goals and business objectives into action driven strategies. The biggest challenge professionals of any industry face is their inability to take proper, prompt and decisive action from the get go. In this presentation, Dr. Cruz will show your organization how to develop a mind-set geared towards action in areas such as goal setting, team building and sales, as and how to eliminate the pitfalls that sabotage success.

Key Lessons:

  • Make action a governing value in your organization
  •  Eliminate the biggest natural-born enemies of action
  • Turn goals into plans and plans into concrete actions
  •  Identify the catalyst that will create action in your organization
  •  Get motivated and stay motivated day after day
  •  Banish time-wasters and eliminate procrastination
  •  Help your organization eliminate all excuses and become possibility thinkers

Once Upon a Cow: How to get rid of the excuses that keep us from succeeding

Based on his book, Once upon a Cow, an international bestseller with more than two million copies sold in 15 languages, in this presentation, Dr. Cruz points to the fact that one of the great challenges facing companies today is to overcome their own limitations, the result of excuses, justifications and false beliefs that condition their lives, and limit the level of success they can experience in their business. The real enemy of success is not failure, as many people think, but mediocrity. The cow represents every excuse, pretext, belief or justification that invites us to settle for second places and prevents us from achieving our personal, professional or business goals. Excuses such as “I do not have time”, “My partner does not support me”, “I am very shy”, “I am not a good salesman”, “I do not know anyone”, “The product is very expensive”, “My team is very lazy”, or “I do not have a leader who guide me”, prevent employees from utilizing their true potential and building a successful corporate culture.

Once Upon a Cow will motivate participants to develop a positive mental attitude to achieve a high level of productivity in the development of their work. When we learn to overcome our fears and focus on our strengths we achieve results never before imagined. Participants will learn to maintain a high level of motivation and those persons who have stalled will renew their enthusiasm to expand their career, increase their sales, pursue their goals and grow their organizations.

Key Lessons:

  • What are the five most common excuses in a corporate environment and how to eliminate them.
  •  Overcoming weaknesses by focusing on strengths.
  • In the business world, even excuses and false beliefs get duplicated
  • Eliminating the most common fears
  • How to overcome rejections and learn from falls and failures.

A Sales Superstar strategy will teach you how to transform potential achievement into overwhelming success.

This presentation is a truly treasure chest that will help your team to add persuasion to all your negotiations. Find out what are the most common objections from customers and prospects and learn how to respond to them safely. This will allow you to attract more people to your business, establish loyalty to your products and create loyalty among all your clients.

  • What are the most common objections from customers.
  •  Five steps to identifying customer needs?

As he writes in his book, In Search of the American Dream – A Guide to Succeeding in the United States, Camilo arrived in the U. S. in 1980, with no knowledge of the language, and with no more credentials than a high school diploma, less than two hundred dollars and a bag full of dreams. The oldest son of schoolteachers from a modest home in Latin America, he came to the U.S. in search of his American Dream; made it come true and now teaches others how to make their dreams a reality.

His accomplishments are a great example of the entrepreneurial spirit that he shares in his presentations. He earned his M.S. in Chemistry and his Ph.D. in Science from Seton Hall University, a master’s degree in creative Writing from Colombia’s National University of Colombia, and he is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s program on Corporate Governance. Dr. Cruz has been a professor of Quantum Physics, Thermodynamics, Chemistry and Mathematics at several universities in the U.S.

Through in-house workshops attended by a couple of hundred people to life-changing events for 20,000 people, Dr. Cruz has counseled people from every walk of life, from “Fortune 500” executives to educators, entrepreneurs, students, community and business leaders. Clients who benefit from his message include executives from companies such as Goodyear, AT&T, 3M, Wal-Mart, Coca Cola, among others, as well as leaders from Chambers of Commerce, Educational Institutions and Professional Associations in the U.S. Latin America and Europe.

Dr. Cruz is the best-selling author of several international Bestsellers with sales of more than three million copies that have been translated in fifteen languages.
