WINNING WELL

Lead your team to the top without losing your soul

Management isn’t easy.

Managers regularly face seemingly impossible goals. The eventual fallout is stress, frustration, and disengagement from themselves and from their staff. Two-thirds of managers report being disengaged from their mission and disconnected from their team.

WINNING WELL is a manager’s lifeline for getting the results they need while keeping employees and themselves energized, motivated and inspired.

Filled with humor, straight talk, and hard won truths, this inspiring keynote delivers principles and practices to galvanize your team.

Join award-winning authors, Karin Hurt and David Dye for practical leadership tools, tactics and strategies to achieve breakthrough results that really last.

  • Mind the MIT: (the Most Important Thing) that contributes to consistent, breakthrough results
  • Play the Game: don’t game the score. Use data to drive, and not drown, your team
  • Own the UGLY: eliminate the most common productivity killers
  • Ditch the Diaper Genie: correct poor performance without drama
  • Put People Before Projects: quickly build a more competent and confident work force
  • Rock Your Role: leverage your strengths to make a unique contribution to the organization
  • Channel Challengers: build better relationships – up, down, and sideways
  • Trust the Trenches: know the people closest to your customer or product and what they have to say

WINNING WELL: CREATE YOUR CULTURE CODE

Every organization has a code – the invisible, often unspoken, norms that govern how you treat one another, solve problems, and serve your customers.

Despite their best efforts, many leaders struggle to build the culture they want. Instead, they work tirelessly to work with the culture they get. These accidental culture codes often result in managers throughout the organization bouncing back and forth between trying to make everyone happy or using people like objects to get things done. Fortunately, there is a better way.

Join award-winning, best-selling leadership authors Karin Hurt and David Dye to discover the secrets of building an intentional culture one interaction at a time. In this inspiring program you’ll get the tools you need to build a culture that encourages both confidence and humility and focus on both breakthrough results and healthy professional relationships.

  • Learn how to develop a Winning Well culture and a sustainable competitive advantage
  • Get the tools to ensure your vision is heard, understood, and implemented the way you intend.
  • Ensure you and your senior team get the information you need to make the best decisions
  • Receive proven management tools and techniques to cascade throughout your organization

MASTERING THE ART OF TOUGH CONVERSATION

Do you have a tough conversation you need to have, but are avoiding at all costs?

Have you ever regretted not having the tough conversation, as you watched someone you truly care about repeat a pattern that severely impacted your business?

Is your team speaking with the candor they need to own the ugly problems in your organization and make the best decisions?

Mastering the art of the tough conversation is the key to moving forward and on past difficult moments. Karin and David share their Winning Well model of tough conversations during this invigorating keynote program.

Highlights include:

  • Understanding the conversation you must have with yourself
  • Tools to solve 90% of your tough conversations before they happen
  • How to ‘Ditch the Diaper Genie’ and have the conversations you need to have
  • The I.N.S.P.I.R.E. method of delivering tough feedback
  • How to ask strategic questions that get to the heart of the conversation

My Background

Author and international keynote speaker David Dye gives leaders the roadmap they need to transform results.

David works with leaders around the world who want to achieve breakthrough results without losing their soul (or mind) in the process.

He gets it because he’s been there: a former executive and elected official, David has over two decades of experience leading teams, building organizations, and working with Boards of Directors to transform their effectiveness. He is the award-winning author of 2 books: Winning Well: A Manager’s Guide to Getting Results Without Losing Your Soul and The Seven Things Your Team Needs to Hear You Say.

Known for his optimism, for making difficult concepts understandable, and for moving leaders to immediate, practical action.

David’s keynotes and training programs help leaders across industries to increase their influence, solve common leadership frustrations, and improve productivity through practical leadership inspiration.

David has a BA in Political Science from the University of Colorado and a Masters Degree in Management from Regis University.

He and his wife, Karin Hurt, are dedicated to their philanthropic initiative, Winning Wells, which provides clean water wells to communities struggling with access to safe water throughout Southeast Asia.

David lives outside of Washington, DC. He loves the meditation of a hiking trail, the reward of high mountain peaks, and is proud of the impact his children are having around the world.
