Learn from The Beatles: Leadership that Motivates creates Rock Star Teams & Raving Fans!
Motivation * Leadership * Team building * Humor * Customer Service 

Why were The Beatles so popular? How did they attract millions of fans worldwide? What made them different from other bands?

They were likable, they were passionate about their music, they had a unique sound, they worked well as a team. People are influenced by people passionate about their work. 

All leadership begins with self-leadership. A leader’s job is to create the kind of work environment that inspires employees to motivate themselves. Likable leadership combines listening skills with an open door policy to ensure workers feel valued because people join companies but leave bosses and the #1 reason?  They feel unappreciated.

She loves you, yeah yeah yeah……!

Totally different kind of speaker! Funny as all get out but gave good advice…. She kept us fully engaged the whole time…..Loved the piano interaction with the audience…..High energy & a great motivator….So entertaining, talented & inspiring…..She gave me the tools I needed to attract raving fans…..Hilarious!
