Purpose

Driving outrageous performance is less about the tools you use and the training you offer than the environment you create to inspire super-human performance. The hard truth about business performance is that most of our training efforts are a waste of time and have almost no impact at all on long-term growth. Leaders teach new skills but fail to cultivate an environment where employees develop the will to apply what they learn and exceed expectations.

What Audiences Learn

7 Proven Strategies to Empower Outrageous Results from Ordinary Individuals:

  • Perception of effort
  • Living fit
  • Importance of Morning Rituals
  • Using Smart Tools
  • “Awesome” is a tangible business goal
  • Gratitude is a habit not an emotion
  • Possibility is just someone’s opinion

About Keynote Speaker Dan Waldschmidt

Since birth Dan Waldschmidt has been refusing to accept business as usual.

Sure, he had a lawn mowing business at 12, but he turned his into a money-making machine (though he opted not to tell his mom about his increased profits).

He ran track like plenty of other kids, but he pushed himself to break his high school’s mile record. He got the usual entry-level job right out of college, but then he changed the sales process, earned millions of dollars for the company, and became CEO by the time he was 25.

These days, Dan is a business strategist. A popular speaker. And an ultra-runner.

Dan and his team help companies all over the world arrive at business-changing breakthrough ideas by moving past outdated conventional wisdom, social peer pressure, and the selfish behaviors that stop them from being high performers.

The Wall Street Journal calls his blog, Edgy Conversations, one of the Top 7 sales blogs anywhere on the internet. He’s been profiled in Business Week, INC Magazine, Business Insider, and on dozens of radio programs. Hundreds of his articles on unconventional business strategy have been published.

If you want to catch up with Dan, you’ll probably need to lace up some running shoes and hit the road. He’s the crazy dude running against traffic. In the meanwhile, read his blog, send him an email, ask him for help.

Whatever you do, don’t just do nothing.

Testimonials

Gerhard Gschwandtner

CEO, SellingPower

“Dan was incredible! He was entertaining, motivational, and he connects his stories to thoughtful and actionable takeaways that the audience valued. After his keynote there was a huge line to meet him and get his book signed. In fact, the audience raved about him so much we called him back and asked him to keynote our next event too! We have hosted hundreds of speakers through the years and Dan was the highest rated we have ever had.”
