REBOUND FOR SUCCESS: Which Chair Are You Sitting In? Going From Benchwarmer To Starter

Life is the ultimate championship game. You have to be very skilled, passionate and dedicated to play. On every team there are those who dare and those who stare. Those who dare are starters, while those who stare are benchwarmers. Regardless of their status, most people believe that if they are good enough to make the team, then they are good enough to be starters. However, being satisfied with being “good enough” is what will keep them on the bench. To be a starter, one must strive for and maintain excellence.

The starters catch the eye of their coach, earn the respect of their teammates and opponents, as well as the admiration of the crowd; while the benchwarmers watch, wait, support and cheer for the starters in hopes that they will be next to get in the game. Tired of waiting and watching someone else do the job you know you can do? Then this pre-game program is for you.

This interactive and thought-provoking program challenges any leader who dares to make their presence known to their teammates and the competition. Discover the practical habits and strategies that will raise leaders from the bench where they are instrumental, reactive leaders and place them in the game where they will become infectious, results-yielding leaders.

MAXIMIZING YOUR SHOT CLOCK: Harnessing the power of Time
Within the daily grind of life, we often find ourselves saying that there aren’t enough hours in the day. However, there actually are more than enough hours in a day; We just spend too many of those hours distracted and misappropriating moments. Many of us use “I don’t have time” as a reason for not achieving our goals, but we don’t realize that we’ve spent too much time talking about how much time we don’t have. Sound familiar? Of course not. No matter how great of leaders we claim to be, we fail to plan and furthermore manage our time effectively on a consistent basis. Those excuses lead to unnecessary turnover after turnover. When we violate our shot clock, we forfeit our possession and minimize our chances of winning the most
important game on our schedule; today.

This program zeros in on taking the energy we waste prioritizing unimportant and unproductive activities. Coach Rice focuses on channeling that energy toward maximum return on our investment– including our “play-time”!

REBOUND FOR SUCCESS: Turning Personal Fouls Into Personal Power

Did I do that? No way! We know the rules of the game, yet we commit fouls intentionally and unintentionally as we play this game of life. When we make mistakes or “commit fouls”, we give away some of our personal power. We risk the integrity and overall well-being of our team, especially when we continually commit the same fouls and expect a different outcome. When we have reached our maximum number of fouls, we can no longer affect the game or help our team win consistently.

This program reveals Coach Rice’s “5 G Network”, which digs into the what, when, why, and how of everyone’s gifts and how those gifts directly translate into personal power. This program uncovers the secrets that reveal and unleash each person’s gifts. This program helps to shift those gifts into goals, and turn those goals into greatness. Audiences will learn how to take their failures and use them as fertilizer for personal and professional growth.

“Breaking Down the D”: Conquering Adversity, Demonstrating Your Destiny

As leaders, we face a variety of adversity in our lifetime. In fact, we often view adversity through an antagonistic lens and interpret it’s appearance in our path as a personal threat. Adversity is meant to challenge us and make us faster, stronger, more passionate, and focused. No matter how, when or where adversity plants itself, it can be conquered. It’s all about how we approach it. Leaders must effectively prepare and strategize how to break down the existing defenses that discourage, hinder, impede and potentially defeat them.

In this program Coach Rice breaks down the “D” by sharing stories and practical strategies that will assist the audience in their quest to deal with and ultimately conquer adversity. Audience members will learn how to objectively evaluate and re-configure their perception of adversity and develop an action plan accordingly..
