Take The Leap: 3 Steps to a Breakthrough Life

Global Jam Sessions with Best Selling Author & Entrepreneur, Rick Smith

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Is This It?” Maybe you feel trapped in a role that you are afraid to leave. Or maybe you already have a good job—one that gives you room to grow and exercise your talents—but you don’t really feel like you’re doing your best work. You just don’t know how to make the leap.

Most of us live with significant levels of untapped potential, and it is ultimately up to us to take control of the direction and outcome of our lives.

In the first of three global jam sessions to be conducted by Rick Smith – based on his bestselling new book The Leap – he shows that guiding yourself toward roles that fully leverage your strengths and passions – not fixing your weaknesses – will increase engagement and performance and accelerate individual development. Rick reveals how anyone can be true to themselves and lead authentically, while leveraging the powerful leadership platform utilized by the most successful iconic leaders of the last several centuries. Finally, he shows how you can open numerous new doors in your life while simultaneously mitigating risk, not increasing it.

This powerful three-step approach highlights how you can achieve breakthrough performance, tapping unprecedented personal growth and productivity:

Discover Your Primary Color: Align your strengths and passions with your daily activities to unlock potential and accelerate development.

Leverage the Big, Selfless and Simple Leadership Platform: Anyone can lead authentically, while leveraging this powerful leadership approach that inspires and enlists others, and encourages delegation with alignment to the overall objective.

Let the Spark Sequence Begin: Successfully exploring and exploiting new opportunities requires risk mitigation, not risk aggravation. The spark sequence reveals how anyone can broaden his or her horizons, increasing creativity and innovation, while simultaneously decreasing risk.
