Business Seminars to Inspire and Motivate Your Team

Do people in your group always make excuses for missing their sales goals? Do you seek better balance in life? Do you wish your team could change their bad habits? What does your team want out of life?

I have conducted business seminars with companies as large as DuPont and Edward Jones, charitable and religious organizations, schools, teams, franchisees and local chambers of commerce. Surprisingly they have a great deal in common; employees want to change their bad habits and to stop making excuses; in this stress-filled age employees seek better balance and invariably more out of life.

Don’t You Want More?

My Sharp-Skills seminars challenge, inspire and motivate. They support change, teach “no excuses,” how to break bad habits and create better balance. I have started several successful businesses from scratch along with two decades in the military. I have held business and organizational seminars in the Midwest and throughout the country. I know what it takes to succeed, I know how to create a winning attitude, how to change bad habits and to get more out of life.

More doesn’t just mean more things or more money. It can mean being more effective, more influential, more balanced and…more happy. On the other hand, you can’t make more money without being more effective, balanced and happy.

I Can Help Your Team Reach Its Objectives

I bring real life into my business seminars to teach real lessons. I get results by inspiration and motivation. Let me help your organization reach its objectives!

Business Coaching and Leadership

A Meaningful 20:80 Rule

As a motivational business coach who teaches and encourages leadership, I have run across many so-called “20:80 Rules.” Here the most meaningful – and it’s true! 20 percent of all of the companies in any given industry make 80 percent of the profits.

How do you make it into the top 20 percent?

Making it to the top 20 is about recruiting and hiring the very best employees. Investing in, and then training those employees so that they can build systems and solve problems on their own. Finally, it is about the management of those employees, not just in terms of their day-to- day business goals, but in nurturing their personal goals and dreams.

By encouraging communication and problem solving, and then caring about those employees as people, companies can improve their sales and profitability. However, it is easier said than done, and this is where I can help.

Leadership isn’t a natural skill

As a business coach, I teach you and your team how to hire the very best employees for your organization, how to invest in those employees and give them the skill-set to build systems and solve problems and how to recognize and improve those people to build a great company.

Leadership skills need to be taught. I coach leadership and give you the expertise to make it to the top 20 percent.



  • “An eye-opening experience”

    “The Sharp Skills Seminar is truly an eye-opening experience. Louie is a dynamic speaker and delivers his message with a balance of humor, real life experience and audience participation. The pace of the meeting keeps you focused and energized. I expected to be tired after an all day workshop, but left this workshop motivated and eager to try my new found skills. A great workshop for anyone interested in self improvement.”

  • “We now have the tools to be more efficient and resourceful” “I am writing this letter to let you know how pleased we were with Louie. Thanks to Louie’s extremely motivational seminar, Berger Excavating is making huge strides. We now have the tools to be more efficient and resourceful. Not only was I surprised by the event, but the positive feedback from all involved has been overwhelming. Louie had the ability to bring everyone closer as a company and want to work together to make a stronger team. I would strongly recommend this training to anyone and everyone. After the way the economy has been in such a down-turn, this was what we really needed to re-group and focus on the opportunities of the future.”
