Accountability Keynotes and Programs

Matthew offers a variety of accountability keynotes and programs tailored made for your organization, your office and more importantly for the audience in the seats.

Below are the most popular and most requested accountability keynotes and programs:

Creating New Leaders Program

Creating new leaders is designed for new or recently promoted supervisors. Participants are encouraged to explore their current understanding and internal assumptions of management and leadership. The program reviews theories and practical exercises of leadership to better understand the impact positive leaders can make on an organization.

Leadership Is An Ever Changing Part Of A Successful Team

The New Leaders Program Cohorts will examine their own organization to look internally for ideas, new theories and current perspectives. They will attempt to match those to their own values and ideals, relevant to their new leadership role. We will follow up with interactive work, actionable take-aways and self-guiding leadership initiatives.  As result, we can reflect on any level of leadership.

Interactive, Actionable and Transformational Program

The New Leaders Program Cohort will include such work as: An Orientation, Beginning The Leadership Journey, Results Are The Key, The Three A’s of Leadership, Leading Through Empowerment.

Accountability; The Dirty Laundry Of Every Organization

One of Matthew’s most requested keynote or training programs! Audiences will leave with a clear understanding of the three simple leadership tenants.

As organizational leaders or managers we often forget that we are in charge! We are leading this organization and we have the responsibility to carry out a successful program.

The fact that you have the authority gives you free range to take the necessary action.  If you follow up with swift and accurate accountability you will quickly see effective leadership take place.

Holding our leaders and supervisors to the same level of accountability will breed success.

You Will Offend People; That’s Ok! That’s Your Job!

This presentation gets to the root of the science behind why supervisors and leaders have an inherent trait that inhibits them from confronting and addressing poor performance in the workplace. We were taught to be polite and compassionate. This may create problems in how we perform as a leader.

Much like learning your native language, it’s who we are.  At a young age we are taught how to properly fit into a polite society. When we confront poor performers we are often too polite. Politeness is built into each of us.  Being polite and compassionate is a result of our human DNA. As a result of our politeness, we are easily offended.

In the 30 years of working the streets and leading police officers, I’ve learned the emotional disconnect needed to make hard decisions.  Learning how to have difficult discussions is paramount to creating a new and productive culture.

Your team must hear this presentation!

Sharpen Your Cleats; You Are The Reason Your Team Wins!

This presentation is based on lessons learned at the hand of my older brother Mark… A Parade Magazine High School All-American running back on our hometown football team. A national blue-chip athlete, he went on to play wide receiver and punter for Coach Ara Parseghian for the storied Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The inspiring story of a young boy, growing up in a small town.  Watching his older brother capture the hearts of our town, our state and the nation. This sudden and tragic death left our family devastated and myself wondering who the team would count on. A simple statement made by my brother has inspired a life of leading by example and finding the Why in all that we do.

We are the directors of our story, we get to write the chapters of our life’s book. They Count On Me will inspire you to sharpen your football cleats and prepare to find your Why; your life’s meaning.

Get Over It!

Being offended is counter-productive to teamwork and efficiency.  Hilarious stories and interactive participation helps us learn how to improve our leadership skills.

An effective leader is a proactive learner. Understanding what offends you will help you be the best that you can be. GET OVER IT!  This program has you laughing at yourself and demonstrating how ridiculous we have all become buying into the phenomena.

Who’s Driving The CAR?

Matthew participated in the ground breaking building of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  Helping stand up one of the original 22 law enforcement agencies, provided experience building and setting strategic benchmarks.  Leading two Headquarters Divisions and a national region; he has narrowed the learning curve down to three simple parts.

1. Customer Service
2. Accountability
3. Refuse to Lose

The CAR effect will show you and your team, your leaders and even line level employees how to succeed.  If you improve these three principles; success will be guaranteed.  Matthew will keep the audience engaged and laughing at themselves. He will put simple solutions in their hands for immediate use upon returning to work.
