Fearless Leadership Presentations

Transform debilitating dynamics into creative energy and robust productivity as you and your team befriend fear. Enjoy lessons learned on the mountain slopes from a twenty-one season ski instructor and national black diamond business consultant.

Imagine, two skiers are atop a challenging black diamond run. They sport upscale apparel and top of the line gear. One is having the best day ever, the other the absolute worst day ever. Why would one be in a euphoric state, dancing with the mountain; while the other trembles with cold sweat, about to soil those designer pants?

One is in the grip of fear.  The other has befriended fear.

Imagine your executive team and key players not only facing their fears, but actually embracing and befriending those fears. What would that look like? A winning culture driven by extraordinary synergistic teams working together focused, interconnected, interdependent, profitable.

There are speakers who consult and consultants who speak. Barry Moniak is both. In his deeply insightful and entertaining platform presentations, and innovative training sessions, you enjoy delightful personal experience and profound professional discovery.

Barry customizes his presentations to promote your theme and brings his expertise to life.

Let us help you create an amazing event – and a winning synergistic culture.

Keynote Topic:  FEAR … Foe or Friend?
What’s possible when  fear is your friend?

Keynote Topic:  FEAR … Friend or Foe?
What is possible when  fear is your friend?

Fear is a powerful force, and very real to the person or group experiencing it. Once we face our fear, we can then pose this question: Is what we’re afraid of real or imagined?

If our fear is based in reality, that’s good. Reality based fear exists to warn and protect us. We can embrace it as our friend.

If, however, our fear is imagined, it is still our friend. Imagined fear informs us we’re operating with misinformation. We simply need more knowledge and/or ability.

With this kind of mindset – that fear is our friend – we transform emotional reaction into intelligent response.

Fear is not your foe.  Face it.  Embrace it.  Befriend it.

Win by playing the smarter game with a better team.

What is a “better team”? One that not only faces fear, but befriends it.  Businesses that befriend the fear of hard challenges, become exemplary, iconic.  These winning organizations are driven by the “befriend fear” mind-set of team players who are not afraid of losing their personal identity or autonomy to the team.

Innovative leaders recognize team members’ prejudices and respect their feelings and fears; indeed, they value the differences that make each unique and indispensable.

Profitable team cultures that produce better, not just more, begin with this kind of leadership. These leaders have personal power, not just position power. These innovative frontrunners create mutually reliant relationships between people and processes. They build team trust, an essential component of a profitable, synergistic culture.

Breakout Topic:  Befriend Fear of Critical Team Thinking
Enhance team culture by challenging preconceived notions.

Are we willing to challenge others’ thinking? Are we willing to challenge our own? Are we even aware of how and why we think the way we do? Are we afraid to vacate familiar preconceptions that we have always relied on in making vital decisions? Are we untrusting of teammates or afraid to accept who they really are – and how they think?

Critical thinking embraces the fear of the unknown. It de-villainizes inherent, even fundamental difference, and actually befriends it. This is how we create a culture that honors and appreciates unique traits and talents.

Extraordinary leaders have the wisdom and courage to consider the feelings and fears of others without assumption or judgement. This kind of leadership celebrates differences vital to mutually reliant teams and an effective, profitable culture.

Breakout Topic:  Befriend Fear of Real Communication
                    Say what you have to say – and live to tell about it!

When leaders say what needs to be said, not just what people want to hear, they are seen as straightforward, empowering leaders – or jerks. It depends on how they say it – which depends on how their people need to hear it.

Extraordinary leaders don’t have to choose between being effective or popular – they are both. They take the time to understand others’ feelings and fears. They befriend the fear of differences and challenges to their authority, without assumption or judgment.

They build mutually reliant teams that move fearlessly forward, producing synergistic results far greater than the sum of individual efforts. They enhance company culture and bottom line profits. The job gets done and their team still likes them!

Are we afraid to show up as we really are? Can we befriend the fear of being genuine and honest?
