All Hands on Deck: Building a Culture of Ownership on a Foundation of Values
You will learn why having a culture of ownership is the only sustainable source of competitive advantage. Joe draws lessons from the legendary business leaders included in his book All Hands on Deck, as well as from contemporary success stories in business, healthcare, and the nonprofit world. Because getting the bus right is more important than getting the right people on the bus!
How to See the Lion in Your Mirror
The collective self-talk, self-image, and emotional baggage of the people who work in your organization constitutes an invisible, but very real, ceiling on your performance potential. In this entertaining and inspiring presentation, Joe shares practical tools and strategies to help your people break through the fears that are holding them back, stop making excuses and giving in to self-imposed limitations, and work toward becoming their meant-to-be best selves. Because the collective self-image and self-talk of your people forms an invisible ceiling on the performance of your organization.

“Your presentation was just what we hoped it would be – good information delivered with humor but most importantly a message that inspired and gave hope to folks who are leading in whitewater times and aspiring to develop their staff, work with them to shape a new healthcare system and provide the best for patients.”
Elizabeth Beaudin, Director of Nursing and Workforce Initiatives, Connecticut Hospital Association
“Outstanding presentation. It was perfect for the culture journey in our organization. The feedback has been excellent. Actually, the best we ever had since we started these system-wide manager meetings a few years back. This large group meets twice per year so the day needs to be impactful. You were very impactful.”
Joe Devine, President & CEO, Kennedy Health
“Everyone at TriHealth is still talking about your presentation and there is unanimous agreement that you are the best speaker we have ever had! People have said that they could have listened to you all day. I have never seen anyone else get a standing ovation before either.”
