Thursday, October 28, 2021 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. PDT

How Championship Leaders Lead with Passion, Purpose & Love for Their People

Leadership is simple, but it’s not easy. Aaron Davis had the opportunity to be coached by one of the greatest college football coaches of all time. Dr. Tom Osborne was the head football coach at the University of Nebraska Lincoln for over thirty years. His winning percentage was over 80% with three National Championships. What was more impressive was the legendary leadership style that he consistently modeled to his assistant coaches, players and administration. Why was his leadership style so successful? It all started with his “Attitude”!

What will you learn from this workshop?

Through his presentations Aaron shares personal stories, facts based on research and numerous examples on the power of a positive attitude and the impact it can have on profitability, productivity and the creation of a Championship Culture at your company. Attendees will leave equipped with the tips, tools and techniques necessary to live with the attitude of a champion, and to personally and professionally push for their best – no matter what.
