Who will benefit from this program?

Teachers, Team Members, Civic Club and Association Members and Employees. “The Power Of Better” is designed for those that strive for improvement in their personal and business results, situation and attitude.

What attendees are saying;

Greg brings to the table tremendous insight about leadership, relationships and personal responsibilities that demands one to take their personal inventory; but he does it with such a humorous gentleness that you’re left with a feeling of, “Wow! I can’t wait to get started!”

Who is Greg Gilbert?

Greg Gilbert brings over four decades of non-management, leadership, Human Resources and Leadership Coaching experience to your meeting or event. Greg has personally implemented, witnessed, documented and shared with thousands the positive impact of intentional improvement or Betterment as he likes to call it.

His lessons, tools and opportunities for Betterment are based on personally witnessed examples that work; not someone else’s Module 1-8. Attendees have said his manner of delivery offers encouragement, inspiration and hope to those wanting to improve their current situation, results or morale.

Greg believes it should be illegal to deliver content only. “Mr. HR With A Guitar” provides a touch of humor and a unique method of sharing some of the lessons learned while serving as the primary HR contact to over 2200 team members. Lessons learned differently don’t end with the conference or meeting.

Greg will require that each attendee leave with a commitment to themselves to “get better” in at least one aspect of their leadership or life. He also offers the inspiration and encouragement to follow through on their commitment. The rest is up to the attendee. That’s how personal accountability works.

“I transform ordinary meetings into Encouraging, Educational Events so attendees can have a ROI in Results, Morale and Life. This begins with increasing Education, Engagement and Accountability.

I’ve asked thousands of attendees to write two items that are better today than a year ago as a direct result of their actions. Very few pens hit paper. This is unacceptable with items such as quality, productivity, profitability, safety, attendance, morale, my marriage, my health, my finances and my relationships to choose from. 

As a Speaker or Coach, I don’t tell people what to do or think. My job is to challenge views, encourage debate and provoke a reaction. I offer alternatives based on real life successes, failures and what led to each. If you leave with one idea you can Stop, Start, Improve and Repeat; we’ve had a great visit.

Audience some assembly required

In order for something or someone to change from their present state, some assembly is required. If it’s a bicycle, it will require wrenches and screwdrivers. If it’s a person, it will require a book, seminar, conference, keynote, podcast or one-on-one discussion/coaching.

Thousands of times every day across the country, that assembly is a meeting or conference. Attendees MUST leave with an idea on how to increase Education, Engagement and/or Accountability to receive any type of ROI. Note: Those three items are also very important in everyday life.

In his previous roles in leadership and Human Resources, Greg Gilbert spent countless hours planning meetings and conferences. He is very aware of the difficulties involved in reducing the the monotony of a meeting while increasing the ROI. Greg has designed his programs to help you accomplish both.

Greg has considered the meeting planner working on a conference AND a manager wanting to add something different and productive to a monthly meeting. He has walked in both sets of shoes.

Greg’s programs help companies and organizations have Better Meetings which leads to;

Better Results, Better Customer Service, Better Jobs, Better Morale, Better Health, Better Outlooks, Better Relationships, Better Lives.

To make your meetings “Better;” attendees must leave with habits that are Stopped, Started, Improved and Repeated. That is your Meeting ROI. This is the foundation of other leadership buzzwords such as Culture, Trust and Ownership.

When there is a Meeting ROI, the meeting time and investment cost you nothing.

Thank you in advance for considering Greg Gilbert as a speaker for your next event.

I first had the privilege of hearing Greg speak during a seminar in Little Rock and immediately I knew I would be doing a disservice to my employees if I did not share with them the message he delivers. Greg brings to the table tremendous insight about leadership, relationships and personal responsibilities that demands one to take their personal inventory; but he does it with such a humorous gentleness that you’re left with a feeling of, “Wow! I can’t wait to get started!”

We invited Greg to speak at our Leadership Retreat. Sixteen (out of seventeen) of our returned evaluation questionnaires had a positive comment regarding Greg. (The one without a positive comment, did not have any comments.) Here are a few examples,  “[Greg Gilbert] changed my life! He is an amazing speaker and has a wealth of valuable information.” “Best speaker I’ve ever heard!” And “The most helpful aspects of the retreat were Greg. He was very interesting and gave me things to think about and use.” One of the questions on the questionnaire was “What aspects of the retreat did you like best?” Ten of the sixteen answered that Greg’s presentation was the best. Thank you Greg. As one person wrote, [your presentation] “is from the heart”. -L. Hanson, – Rogers, Arkansas

head shot 3“The greatest satisfaction to a leader at any level is to know they have equipped a team for success, held them totally accountable and watched them develop. The improved profitability, customer service and morale that follow are a bonus. If you lead and live like you own it, you will know that satisfaction.” – Greg Gilbert
