“If you can’t write your message in a sentence, you can’t say it in an hour.”–Dianna Booher, CSP, CPAE

Thanks for your interest in Fire Your Excuses seminars and considering our unique program for your organization. We are honored.

It can be difficult to find the right speaker for your team, especially in the midst of a recession when dollars are tight.  What our 2,400 audiences have found is that the increase in motivation, retention, morale and hope following our presentations more than makes up for the cost of our programs. Invest in the career and personal goals of your employees and members, you will find that they will return the favor.

What is the Fire Your Excuses message? It is simple, direct, specific and powerful. Not only does American need a message of hope at this time, it also needs to be reminded of three key truths:

First:  We need to take immediate action to change the things in our work and personal life that need to change–it’s time. And, there are people and organizations succeeding all the time-even in this economy.

Second: We can’t blame anyone else for what is happening at work or in our personal life.  To a large degree, we have the life and organization we have chosen.

Third: Permanent change is the only viable option but we can’t do it alone. We have all tried the alternative-quick, solo, and temporary change. Ten years ago we learned of the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ.) To be competitive today, we must now we must add a high network quotient (NQ.)  The brilliant but disconnected professional will always be outmatched by their above-average networked colleagues in this new world.  And he or she will never achieve permanent change.

Your team attendees will immediately benefit by:

3. Being motivated to take immediate action, and with the help of a built in community, if desired.

4. Learning to take full responsibility for all areas of life and work.

5. Understanding specifically what it requires to take their (NQ) network quotient to the next level.

6. A fresh educational experience for your corporate team unlike any other training currently available.

The Fire Your Excuses Seminar Experience

Building on Success

For more than two decades Dr. Bill Dyment and Dr. Marcus Dayhoff have collectively conducted more than 2,400 seminars for employee and executive teams from Fortune 500 companies, healthcare organizations, government agencies and charitable organizations. Today they provide more than 150 innovative presentations each year packed with cutting edge strategies that are practical, hard-hitting and provide the immediate, measurable results demanded by today’s audiences.

Fire Your Excuses Seminars

The unique Fire Your Excuses Seminar is a result of nearly a quarter century of listening to the concerns of both individual employees and executive teams from hundreds of organizations.  Fire Your Excuses is a trademarked system designed to help professionals of all levels achieve peak performance.

Wherever the  Fire Your Excuses Seminar is presented, people immediately resonant with the difficulty of trying to make their needed changes permanent and sign up to take the 30-Day Challenge.  Why such an overwhelming response?  Because all of us have “hold out” areas in our lives where our excuses live in complete safety! Most of us either don’t know how or haven’t been ready to walk “the last mile of denial!” These excuses rob us of the dreams we have to better our own lives and to make a difference in the lives of others.  The Fire Your Excuses Seminar Experience is designed to help you identify your unique obstacles, recognize the impact they are having on your goals, and to introduce you to a proven patented plan to help you overcome them. 

In fact, in response to our audiences, our approach is specifically designed to succeed where other strategies have failed.   We all are familiar with short-term change gimmicks.  Change is hard and lasting change is enjoyed by fewer than 10% of all those who make the attempt.  Our goal is to make you part of that elite group by introducing you to research-based techniques that result in permanent change, based on our soon-to-be-released book, Fire Your Excuses.
