 Win by Playing the Smarter Game

Are your teams willing to implement the disruptive ideas proposed by their leaders?

Have they developed the necessary mindsets and skill-sets necessary to maintain a competitive edge in today’s highly disruptive environment?

Do they know how to use the force of fear to their advantage when navigating the challenging terrain they encounter on an ongoing basis?

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.

Advanced skiers enjoy navigating challenging terrain. They have developed the necessary physical and mental skill-sets to befriend the fear of falling that frightens novices. The same is true in business.

Advanced leaders enjoy navigating high level business challenges. They have developed the necessary strategic and interactive skill-sets to befriend the fear of failure that frightens novices.

The concept of Black Diamond Business Training was born out of a conversation between Thomas Cantrell, an Administrative Trial Advocate with a 97% win-rate, and Barry Moniak, a Fearless Leadership Speaker, Innovative Leadership Consultant, and 21 year Certified Ski Instructor.

Thomas stated frankly that 100% of the cases he’d represented over a 42 year period, were avoidable if businesses would have simply applied Barry’s leadership principles – inspired by black diamond training technique.

Black Diamond Business Training resets mindsets. It reconditions human interactions; transforming amateur reactions into professional responses. Innovative perspectives and systems are implemented; then practiced and debriefed between sessions. As your enterprise embeds these concepts into team consciousness, they pull together and play a smarter game.

End in Mind – Innovative Leadership

Thomas Cantrell believes…

We have the alchemic power to transform conflict. A core trait of winners is curiosity — an intense desire to truly understand what the opposition is screaming about.

He believes while people may be miserably difficult to deal with when things go awry, still, they are your greatest asset. Black Diamond leaders know contention is the birthplace of invention, they don’t avoid it, they embrace and transform it.

With 42 years of administrative trial advocacy, and a 97% win-rate. Thomas will tell you that 100% of those cases were avoidable. All leadership needs is the courage and enthusiasm to embrace conflict and contention as a black diamond skier embraces a challenging and invigorating run.
