Teamwork and Leadership Authority
Speaking to Leaders
Speaking to Sales Pros
Leading and managing change has never been easy. But it’s never been more challenging than it is today in this “New Normal” or “New Reality." The customer has never been more demanding, the competition never stiffer, uncertainty everywhere, employees less engaged, anxiety high, and change and technology advances only getting faster. Plus, many of us are leading and managing REMOTELY! Despite all these demands, many leaders are being asked to accomplish more, faster and remain flexible to marketplace demands and changes.
Eric Boles will deepen your understanding of the fundamentals of personal mastery and change enablement. Participants learn time-proven techniques and skills for enhancing personal accountability and helping themselves and others overcome the natural, human resistance to change. Boles provides a scientifically sound set of tools that will enable individuals to increase their self-efficacy (the ability to cause and make happen), improve their self-esteem and enhance their ability to set and accomplish bigger and better goals. A result of experiencing Moving To Great is a renewed sense of commitment and a greater willingness to seek out and implement new approaches to tackling both personal and organizational challenges.
In this speech, Eric Boles will help you become intentional in how you positively influence others. The goal being that your influence grows alongside your commitment to creating great relationships. You will enjoy the practical and personal application of principles for inspiring, motivating, and developing others. Boles builds on the skills you already possess and equips you to achieve positive change in your life and the life of your organization through effective, visionary leadership.
The goal of every team is to win; no matter the venue or arena of competition, sports or business, the objective is to come out on top. What if there was a better approach that does not involve winning or losing, winning was simply the by-product? The pursuit of excellence is not about winning – it is “More than Winning.” It is giving your very best in pursuit of a goal or worthwhile endeavor bigger than yourself. It is bigger than any one individual and demands your very best. Eric Boles focuses on releasing a team’s potential. This is the result of effectively leveraging the individual strengths for the benefit of the team and the goal. We’ll show you the keys to unlock the potential.
Perhaps the greatest challenge that you will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Fear has always been the greatest enemy of mankind. When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of associated anxiety, stress and unhappiness. This speech by Eric Boles is based on this premise. Just think: What would you dare to dream, be or do if you were able to overcome your fears? Fortunately, the habit of courage can be learned!
“It’s not that often that you find a speaker that reflects the immediate needs of an organization, and knows what it is thinking, and what it needs. Eric Boles recently did that for us at Endo… twice!! Eric’s ability to simplify and condense “leadership speak” into meaningful and relevant bits that relates to all of us…has been effective, as well as inspiring for the entire team. In times of organizational change, as well as uncertainty, Eric’s message resonates well with individuals throughout the organization. Eric, thank you for your motivating, and grounded message!”
"Eric is an authentic and passionate speaker, and he held a commanding presence on stage as our keynote speaker. His style, demeanor and message clearly conveyed our theme of GAME ON., and we all walked out of the keynote feeling motivated and ready to win. It was an absolute pleasure to have Eric join us at our event, and I am pleased to recommend him as a keynote speaker."
"WOW!!! I, along with our entire sales team were blown away! You grabbed us from the first minute and held us on the edge of our seats for the entire 90 minutes. Your message was tailored perfectly to fit our audience and was exactly what we needed to hear! Eric, your insights on both professional and personal peak performance were so relevant to all of us. Your passion combined with your expertise, communicated in such a “useable” way was so refreshing. Plus, you taking the time afterwards to sign everyone’s book was just priceless! Seeing the looks on our people’s faces as you greeted them, shook their hands, and looked them each in the eye and exchanged a quick comment or story was incredible! You were the talk of everyone afterwards. Eric, I can’t thank you enough. I would recommend you to any organization, agribusiness or not, that wants a fabulous speaker who will leave a lasting impression. Our people are still talking about you a month later! You were so great to work with, too. So genuine and humble."
"Your message was a perfect mix of business information combined with inspiration, encouragement, and humor made a very memorable impression on 650 sales leaders that make our organization be ONE TEAM, ONE MISSION, ONE VOICE."

"Eric executed a difficult task with grace-speaking to every individual in the room, regardless of role or responsibility. It was clear he had internalized the background we had shared with him and made it his own."
"Your presentation on 'Moving to Great' was just what our organization needed! You did an AMAZING job!!! The halls were buzzing and you were spot on with your entire message. As we kicked off our first career week, it was important for participants to understand the importance of owning their own career, building their own brand and unlocking the potential they already have. Eric, your personal storytelling and sense of humor resonated with everyone in the audience and, based on feedback we’ve received, you helped us achieve our goals!"
"WOW! Thank you so very much for your fantastic keynote message at our 2010 Profitability & Growth Conference in New Orleans. Your presentation was just perfect for our audience of corporate employees. The nearly 1000 attendees were still buzzing about your powerful message the next day. Your challenging insights on becoming a 'Dream Team' blending around leadership, focus, peak performance, and managing change were perfectly tailored to our meeting and business issues."
"Thank you for the wonderful job you did speaking with our leadership teams at Nationwide. Your emphasis on the importance of a solid personal life in achieving success professionally was powerful. Your message also resonated with our culture of providing meaningful and consistent feedback for our associates. Your energy and “real world” examples brought great inspiration, encouragement and motivation to the day-to-day tasks of leaders throughout our organization."
"Eric fired up the team in a very logical, realistic, and reflective manner. His stories allowed his message points to be delivered in a way the team could relate to and internalize. He challenged us to take personal responsibility and compelled us all to think differently about our personal performance on the job, and in our lives. The presentation was impactful, and his passion drips. I believe true paradigm shifting and developmental growth occurred."
"Thank you so much! Today is, by far, the BEST training I've ever had. I've been to many training seminars and am not always impressed by the content or the speakers. However, I thought Eric was terrific—passionate, clear, and entertaining! Plus, the content was first rate. Thanks for putting on an excellent course!"
"I want to sincerely thank you for the incredible job you did as a keynote speaker at our Leadership Summit. You stole the show!! Our people were completely engaged from beginning to end with your timely message and your humble enthusiasm. We could not have been more please with your presentation. The content was right on target while providing the perfect combinations of education and inspiration."
"Eric’s high-energy delivery made for a fitting keynote at our annual meeting. His speech hit home with us both professionally and personally. As we continue on our journey of continuous improvement, Eric’s message will inform how our leaders approach the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us!"
"For the second year in a row you 'wowed' our franchise partners! You embraced our theme of 'exceptional' and instilled a piece of it within each person listening. What a way to kick off our conference! Thank you!"
"The standing ovation you received afterwards indicates how our people truly feel about your presentation. We knew from our first engagement with you that you were ‘FABULOUS!!!’ but this round left us confident in coming back for more. Our people are truly challenged and inspired. Eric, you are a true professional and a delight to work with."
"Your passion, energy and excitement permeated the room like no other keynote speaker we have had before. Your message set the stage for the entire meeting, capitalizing on the theme “Game Changer” and truly brought it home to all attendees…both Motion employees as well as our suppliers! I can’t tell you how many people came up to me after the meeting and commented about how you impacted them. Many told me they were ready to go out and sell more immediately after you spoke. To sum it up, you “lit a fire” with just about everyone in the room."
“Eric Boles was the wonderful keynote speaker for Furniture Today’s recent Bedding Conference. In football terms, Eric caught our pass and ran it in for an early touchdown. In business terms, he gave us a lot to consider. Here are just a few of the comments we received on Eric on our evaluations. These are all direct quotes:
Eric received top scores on his address, and he set the stage for what was our highest-rated Bedding Conference ever. He had energy, great content, and humility, and he talked about something even more important than business: The importance of taking care of ourselves. You would do well to ask Eric to kick off your next big meeting.”
