The Center for Executive Development at Mays Business School in partnership with The Molitor Group


Unleashing Greatness

Today’s rapid pace and destabilizing rate of change are unprecedented. We haven't experienced anything like this moment in our homes, communities, or the business world. Technological advances paired with generational differences in behavioral patterns create a myriad of daily distractions. Purposeful culture and clear vision have never been more critical in building unshakeable foundations — foundations that will yield sustainable success.

Finding the right people, developing your people the right way, and putting your team in position to be successful is key to unleashing your greatness.

Successful leaders study other successful leaders; they deeply research other teams who know how to win and sustain that winning year after year.

Champions who relentlessly pursue greatness never miss an opportunity to improve themselves and to make those around them better.  

Join Don Yaeger and Ed Molitor on April 10th in the Ford Hall of Champions at Kyle Field for Unleashing Greatness, a Leadership Performance event where they will share with you the traits and behaviors of high-performing leaders in athletics. They will demonstrate how those same traits and behaviors intersect with remarkable business leaders. More importantly, they will show you how you can further develop these traits and behaviors to unleash your individual and collective greatness.

Enhanced Experience

There is no better setting for this powerful event: the Ford Hall of Champions was part of an unprecedented transformation of Kyle Field and continues in the traditions of the greatness of Texas A&M. For one day, the Ford Hall of Champions will serve as a gathering place for some of the top business leaders and teams in the region.

This setting will provide a memorable experience in a creative environment and help us break away from the typical conference setting. The Ford Hall of Champions setting means fewer interruptions and more focus — a day out of the office provides an opportunity to take a mental break from the never-ending to-do list and the usual distractions that pop up throughout the day.

Relationship Building

The massive 30,000-square-foot virtual sports museum will be filled with like-minded individuals with a shared purpose that day: to discover game-changing stories, ideas, practices, and the mindset which can help them, and their team close the performance gap. The objective is to move them from where they are today toward the greatness they may not even be able to identify. With all these quality voices in one room, we will have an incredible opportunity to bond with your team and to network with other leaders who are champions in their industry. Together, we believe we can unleash greatness.

Did we mention that lunch will be a tailgate party for the entire group outside of Kyle Field, providing the perfect atmosphere to network and have a few laughs?!

Unleashing Greatness is for those committed to doing everything it takes to maximize their potential as a leader, performer and collectively as a team.

Everyone wants to win.

The great ones, though, leave no stone unturned and recognize high-value opportunities to grow as they are consumed with greatness and reaching their fullest potential. They have zero interest in being a spectator on the sidelines of their career.

They realize that though they've summited great heights in their career, they can still reach for more. Greatness is not something that can be left to chance; it is about action and not lip service.

Our day together will be broken down into three sections where Don and Ed plan to go deep on:

●        Unleashing Greatness through Authentic and Resilient Leadership

●        Recruiting in a Tight Labor Market and Stopping the Revolving Door

●        Embracing the Power of Greatness- Game-Changers that you will not find in the playbook

There will also be a segment with Don and Ed where they will answer questions as well as engage the audience in a discussion. This intersection of crafted strategy, review, and mentorship is extremely powerful.

The practices we cover will equip you with the tools to:

●        Increase your self-awareness

●        Communicate authentically

●        Leverage your strengths

●        Develop and strengthen powerful relationships

●        Develop an unshakeable foundation of trust

●        Build a culture worth fighting for

●        Develop a champion mindset built through self-discipline and repetition

●        Unleash Your Greatness
