Today’s world economic climate has shifted from conditions that might be described as a gentle tail breeze on the bunny hill to what is now a head wind in an extreme sport that we didn’t sign up for!

Two groups of people will emerge during this recession. There will be those that sit with their head in their hands—drifting, stalled, stuck; and there will be those that choose to draw a line in the sand, take responsibility, maintain control, and remain accountable for their own lives and economic security.

In today’s extreme conditions fear, doubt and uncertainty are paralyzing people’s power, both professionally and personally. Based on the concepts outlined in his new book, HOW to WIN - Achieving Your Goals in Extreme Conditions, Cary Mullen's presentations show your attendees how to achieve and innovate, enhance team performance and display Team Captain leadership during these challenging times.
