    Be The Best At What Matters Most
    The High Performance Mindset
    Here is the goal of this presentation:

    "You pushed us to think beyond our typical boundaries and challenged   us to take our business to new heights."  Ed Quinlan - HRI

    Be The Best At What Matters Most - The High Performance Mindset - is about what the greatest companies in the world have in common: mindset.  Mindset is an established way of thinking...a way of looking at things.
    The high performance mindset is a way of thinking about your business, and it's the difference between extraordinary companies and average ones.  When you change your mindset, you can change everything, including performance, results, and growth. 
    The ideas in Be The Best At What Matters Most - The High Performance Mindset are practical, real world, and can be implemented beginning tomorrow.  Regardless of the size of your company, you can use the exact same ways of thinking that enable companies like Apple, Zappos, and Southwest Airlines to drive and sustain extraordinary success.
    "To say you've changed the way we look at doing business is a massive understatement.  You have changed the way we do business completely, in understanding what we need to do in order to do things better."           Paul Rosser - R&D Consulting Ltd.
    In this interactive session based on Joe's new book, Be The Best At What Matters Most, and his classic best-seller, Becoming a Category of One, the takeaways include:
    * Simplify/Focus: If you can make things simple and focus on what really counts, you can move mountains.  
    * Excel: Win on what matters most to your customers.
    * Connect: The rational connection/The emotional connection - win on both and you win it all.
    * Improve: Everyone gives lip service to continuous improvement. Precious few actually do it.  The ones who do sustain success.
    * Act: Stop talking about it. Do it.  Action is the ultimate differentiator.
    Join Joe in an interactive, engaging session and learn how to create the mindset that drives high performance.
    "You gave us a blueprint to follow if we wanted to create a company      that defied comparison. You gave us ideas to help us markedly        improve upon how we do business."  
    Mike Gorlick, CEO - Zenith Marketing
