Motivational Keynote Speaker, Steve McClatchy

Great decision-making habits can yield a lifetime of success and achievements while poor ones can keep you stressed, frustrated, and out of balance.  Consistently improving your life and achieving your goals is not easy. Don't miss the opportunity to hear from Steve McClatchy, Founder & CEO of Alleer Training and Consulting, speaks on how you can work smarter, reduce stress and increase work / life balance. If you are interested in learning a decision-making system that can help you achieve more, overcome obstacles, and stay balanced this is a “don’t miss” presentation. 

Steve’s passion is for continual improvement and believes that when we stop learning, gaining experience and achieving goals we stop living.  You will be captivated, motivated and truly inspired by his unique and practical approach to effectiveness and success.

    Motivational Keynote: Decide - Work Smarter, Reduce your Stress & Lead by Example

    Your life is a product of your decisions.  Your criteria for making decisions are at the very core of your effectiveness.  Great decision-making habits can yield a lifetime of success and achievements while poor ones can keep you stressed, frustrated, and out of balance.  Consistently improving your life and achieving your goals is not easy.  The problem is that goals mean improvement, and improvement means change, and change is not always welcome.  Just as a business must never stop learning, improving, and innovating to lead in the marketplace, as individuals we are faced with this same challenge.  In this speech you will learn which decisions prevent burnout, accelerate your success, increase your engagement, reduce your stress and drive you forward.  If you are interested in learning a decision-making system that can help you achieve more, overcome obstacles, and stay balanced this is a “don’t miss” presentation.  Attendees will also learn to: 

    • Focus on results and the true drivers of performance.
    • Dramatically increase work and life engagement. 
    • Prevent burnout and regain critical planning and personal time.
    • Be an example of balance for others to follow. 

    Steve McClatchy is a keynote speaker, workshop leader and author of the New York Times Bestseller Decide: Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress & Lead by Example.  Steve has spoken before thousands of audiences on the topics of leadership, performance, personal growth, and work/life engagement.  His client list includes the NFL, Google, Pfizer, Microsoft, Disney, NBC Universal, Accenture, John Deere, Under Armour,  Wells Fargo and Campbell’s Soup.  He is a frequent guest lecturer at Harvard and Wharton. He has appeared on ABC, CBS, Fox News, NBC’s Today Show and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Entrepreneur and Investor’s Business Daily.  Steve’s passion is for continual improvement and believes that when we stop   learning, gaining experience and achieving goals we stop living.  Steve is best known for his passion, sense of humor and energetic personality.  You will be captivated, motivated and truly inspired by his unique and practical approach to effectiveness and success
