-LIONS AND LEADERS: The Principles of Perseverance
Lance's smash hit keynote on leadership and perseverance, where Lance will show, with his 5 Principles of Perseverance, how he achieved what many perceived to be an unattainable goal: The First Deaf Player in NBA History.
He is now duplicating those same principles on a daily basis to conquer his next "unattainable goal."
When you hear his story, you will understand how among his peers in the basketball world, Lance became known as "The Lion."
If Lance, the quiet, deaf underdog from rural Montana, could push himself out of his comfort zone, day in and day out, what is your excuse not to?
Lance will challenge and train your sales team to detach their self-worth from outcomes, empowering them to be more daring, gritty, creative and resilient, knowing that if they function from a place of integrity, they can never fail.
The concept of Team, implies sacrifice, but Lance saw at an early age, within a socialist utopian society, why the altruistic idea of team has only a small chance of ever being truly achieved. He learned how to apply that early experience and use it in his basketball career, to find a true successful win-win environment within his teams across the globe. Divulging his “5 Truths of a Team,” Lance will share his experiences and bring new ways of thinking and ideas to help you and your team find the most successful balance. Your team will be Lethal.
This presentation is specifically targeted to high school student-athletes, their parents, coaches and athletic directors.
For the college bound athlete, the future looks bright and their path paved with promise. Yet, there are many aspects to that collegiate and professional dream that many players, parents and coaches are just not aware of. With a world of experience through the political and business side of sports, both collegiately and professionally, Lance will take your student-athlete through the pitfalls and angles to which they need to enter with eyes wide open, for dreams can quickly turn into nightmares. Highly informative, honest and blunt, yet inspiring, Lance will give you the wisdom and knowledge that he wishes he would have been informed with in his teenage years. All athletes, those with the intention to play collegiately or not, and their parents, are strongly encouraged to attend this invaluable session.
