Career Development | Running to Leadership: Individual and Team Building Course


Successful endurance athletes and business managers exhibit the same characteristics to thrive. They manage change by taking calculated risks and gradually expanding their comfort zones. This is how a miler becomes a marathoner and an individual contributor becomes a successful manager. They must incorporate change, manage risk, and motivate people to go up hill at a time when they want to quit. All of this must be achieved in a stressful, challenging business environment.

The presenter implemented a $12 million IT project for $2.6 million. He shares his first hand experiences as a project manager and executive. This certified distance running coach and hall of fame marathoner is one of about fifty people in the world who completed the marathon "hat trick" which consists of completing (1) at least one hundred 26.2-mile marathons, (2) a marathon in each of the 50 States plus DC, and (3) a marathon on all seven continents. He shows you how to lead people using marathon techniques and strategies.

Learning Outcomes & Objectives:

  • Motivate yourself and your team members without a budget.
  • Manage the negative, victim mentality.
  • Embrace fear and risk to move outside your comfort zone.
  • Develop leaders and staff members.
