In the era of Instagram filters and social media celebrities, people continue to erroneously believe that reaching goals simply requires grit and perseverance.

In this session, Bill will teach you how to reframe failure to create a more positive and motivating environment, what ‘The Rule of 33-1%’ can do for you and your business, how to break goals down into measurable/attainable milestones to boost achievement and more, ultimately invoking strong leadership qualities in yourself and inspiring those around you to do the same.
