The presentation’s theme and content is based on fifteen years worth of research into the common denominators shared by the world’s most successful people.  This lecture will reveal the traits that separate world leaders from the second place finishers.

Key themes of the presentation include:

• A review of how incremental advantages have changed the course of history; including how they could have influenced the first-ever televised presidential debate which aired on September 26, 1960. 
• A discussion of specific steps to take to achieve incremental advantages such as:
o Reinforcing your strengths / delegating your weaknesses
o Time management techniques
o Motivation techniques
o Handling setbacks
o Hiring for success
o Empowering your team
o The necessity of taking action even when in doubt
o The power of momentum
o Importance of persistence
