Elevate Performance

A refreshingly practical, participant-centered, actionable roadmap for lasting, extraordinary results.

Organizations spend over $80 billion on annual training & development.

Yet, nearly 90% of new skills are lost and forgotten within a year.

Here's why...

Most training focuses on changing our actions to create results.

But, what drives our actions?
Our beliefs.

In order to achieve sustainable results, we need to first transform our identities as leaders. Then, empower our people to transform theirs.

That's What
Keith Does.

Step Up To A New Level.

"I’ve watched Keith deliver at conferences, workshops, and a lot of different kinds of scenarios. His ability to connect with people, to have them really understand how they can become more effective as an individual leader, and drive the kind of action to step up into a much bigger place is second to none."

Hi, I'm Keith!

By my early twenties, I had adopted the belief that the world was unfair, and the identity that I was a victim to it. I had failed out of college and into a floundering career as a plumbing apprentice, and I blamed a lot of people and circumstances for the way my life had turned out. But along the way, a few mentors who never gave up on me helped me discover that it was how I was choosing to see myself that was determining my results and that if I wanted more, I would need to become more. This discovery elevated my career, and in my path from plumber, to salesman, to trainer, speaker and coach, I have discovered that identity is what drives the outcomes of our businesses and our lives.

Through speaking, coaching, training and consulting, I serve leaders to transform their identity to influence the culture and performance of their businesses. In the past 8 years I've spoken to nearly 20,000 people on the topics of leadership, influence, sales, and personal development. I've spent over 7,000 hours in front of audiences mastering the art and science of facilitation and engagement, and the remaining time obsessing over how to be better. As a coach, trainer and consultant, over 600 businesses and hundreds of leaders have given me the privilege of being their guide as they transformed their own leadership identity and led unprecedented growth for their teams.

This work has given me the chance to share the stage with some of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever encountered, including John Maxwell, Pat Lencioni, Gino Wickman, Robert Cialdini, Joe Navarro, Les Brown, Lior Suchard, David Rendall, and Vinh Giang. If there are names on that list you don’t know, please look them up, hire them, and learn from them. They are extraordinary.

Likely lesser known names, but even more exceptional, are the friends, family and colleagues who have supported me through every turn. Dennis, Faith, Andy, and Kerry Mercurio, Dan Friesen, Sheri Bennefeld, Dave Boduch, Gina Baratto, Jack Tester, Julian Scadden, Jason Kunz, Josh Neumann, Brendan Finn, Nate Bleu, Tyler Lorenzen, Bobby Hamilton, and Lauren and Jon Nykvist have fed my knowledge, shaped my character, and engrained my commitment more than they may ever know.

Above all, my work continues to be supported and humbled by my beautiful and brilliant wife, Brynn, who reminds me, consistently, to...

...live the message I share.

SPEAKING TOPIC & OUTCOMES

Ethical Influence

CREATE A NEW STATE OF PEAK PERFORMANCE.

  • Your state is a three-part framework that creates the lens through which you experience the world around you. Part one is your point of visual and mental focus. We find what we focus on, and so to create a peak state, we must shift our focus towards opportunity and outcome and away from the thoughts and circumstances that diminish our power.
  • Once you’ve focused on what you want, it’s critical to support that outcome with the language you speak to yourself and others. As a result, your “I am” statements allow you to summon the version of you best suited to take on the moment at hand.
  • Your mind translates the story your body tells. So, align your physiology with your focus and language to complete your peak performance state.

THIS PROGRAM IS PERFECT FOR:

  • Organizational leaders who are looking to take their teams to the next level.
  • Sales professionals looking to acquire skills of influence while strengthening their integrity.
  • Anyone who is looking to achieve the results in their life which have eluded them until this point.

THE AUDIENCE WILL LEAVE WITH:

  • An inspired sense of self and others.
  • Tools for immediate application to turn that inspiration into results.
  • A commitment that today is the day, and now is the time.
