AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare workers struggling to keep up with new demands on their jobs can look for tactics to overcome adversity and deal with change from Matt Jones, a three-time cancer conqueror, and keynote motivational speaker who inspires healthcare audiences to achieve their victories as they hear his story.
"I help develop your marathon mindset to overcome limiting beliefs so you can cross the finish line," said Jones, author of "Leadership Is a Marathon" and founder of the R.E.A.L. Leadership Academy (www.RealLeadershipAcademy.com) whose mission is to develop leaders that impact, influence and leave a lasting legacy.
"In a recent survey 75% of respondents said their company is chronically short of leadership talent, according to the 'The War for Talent.' Being an effective leader, like a marathon, is an endurance event," said Jones who relearned how to walk after battling cancer and has competed in five marathons around the world.
Jones' talk, "Leadership Is a Marathon" provides principles that leaders can use to empower and energize themselves in order to do the same for those they lead. Matt uses his experience of running a marathon as a metaphor to share leadership strategies learned through personal experiences and graduate work in Transformational Leadership.
This talk is ideal for healthcare association leaders and executives, management teams and leadership retreats. He has spoken for many healthcare organizations including American Medical Billing Association, Bayer HealthCare, Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, State Farm and St. Francis Hospital in Topeka.
"My talk is designed to fire up and pump up your audience to take action. When it comes to your attendees achieving greater victory, it's not the outside stuff that matters, but the inside stuff that counts," he said. "Leadership, like a marathon, is an endurance event."
"His story was a great fit for the nearly 2,000 attendees. He empowered, encouraged, and inspired the audience. After hearing Matt speak the attendees were energized and fired up. Matt Jones is a top-notch speaker and provided real value for our members," said Reed Pew, CEO of the American Academy of Professional Coders.
Leaders can use the strategies and lesson he shares to overcome challenges they face and achieve greater success. This talk is high energy, upbeat, and humorous. He works with meeting planners to tailor the talk for the audience and ensures it is relevant to their challenges, needs, and objectives. This talk is ideal for opening and closing keynotes.
After hearing Matt speak, audience members will walk away energized and with practical action steps they can apply immediately and have a renewed passion for leadership. Matt is known for his energetic style that moves audiences to achieve greater success personally and professionally.
His book, "Leadership is a Marathon: 26.2 Winning Strategies to Stay Motivated as a Leader" shows:
- You can't be a great leader until you are a great person.
- You have to lead yourself before you lead others.
- Character is forged through the fires of adversity.
