The Launch Your Leadership! Series of Keynote Presentations
Expert speaker and author Rick Searfoss’ four main programs are built upon the 4P Leadership Performance Balance model of Purpose, People, Perspective, and Program (click here for more info). Featured in his book LIFTOFF: An Astronaut Commander’s Countdown for Purpose-Powered Leadership, this model presents the keys for real leadership, team performance, operational innovation, and effective execution. While each keynote has a particular baseline emphasis, Rick will gladly combine and customize his messages to meet the needs of every audience.
All programs use spectacular video and still imagery to illustrate key points, giving gripping, powerful visual impact to match the inspiring, content-filled messages.
