caring shine. l I have never encountered a speaker as dynamic as PAUL’S MULTIMEDIA KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS, BREAKOUT SESSIONS, AND HALF-DAY/FULL-DAY SEMINARS Enthusiasm—Your Secret Weapon – This dynamic presentation reinforces the importance of genuine enthusiasm for everyday life. Paul illustrates what an optimistic state of mind can and will do for one’s work ethic while providing concrete examples of moraleboosting ideas. The information participants take from this presentation will not only emphasize the importance of efficiency, a positive attitude, and a passion toward life, it will also provide them with an incredible advantage in their everyday lives. Keep It Simple – Maintaining simplicity in everyday life might sound like wishful thinking. However, keep in mind that we each control our actions and reactions. If we make a conscious choice to embark down a path, it is our responsibility to follow through with conviction. During Keep It Simple, Paul shares insights critical to being effective through straightforward strategies. With the many decisions required daily, it is easy to become overwhelmed. By concentrating on simplicity, individuals can acheive their goals, one step at a time. It’s Your Life—Dominate It – As life passes one day to the next, there is no better time than now to challenge and encourage individuals to maximize their potential to the fullest. Paul inspires attendees to make each moment of their lives count for something special. During this high-energy presentation, participants can expect to hear in-depth remarks and observations on several major points. The concepts presented will captivate and stir individuals to not merely exist, but thrive and excel in this constantly changing world. Energize the Enthusiasm...that Exists Within – Being able to define enthusiasm, determine where your particular passions lie, and what can be done to make those passions shine are keys to maintaining enthusiasm in the whirlwind of life. The ideas and principles rediscovered in this seminar will not only reinforce why
enthusiasm works, but also provide the tools necessary to wake up each day and embrace it. Life is chaotic and it is sometimes easy to feel beaten down. Finding what motivates, what instills passion, and what drives one forward requires individual effort. By focusing on these areas, participants will learn to use the energy derived, channeling it into things they may be less enthusiastic about. Time Management—Harnessing Your Power at Hand – Insufficient time management has the potential of being one of the largest productivity deterrents in the workplace. Developing effective time management skills not only increasees efficiency, it lessens stress and improves the overall quality of life—both personal and professional. Effective time management is made up of a combination of good practices that Paul explores in this workshop. Learning to recognize and manage distractions, make continual adjustments, and discipline oneself to remain committed to proven habits are tactics that produce efficiency. Legendary Leadership in Action – Throughout generations there have been those called on to lead—courageous individuals who have taken great interest in the well-being of others. In Legendary Leadership in Action, Paul demonstrates concepts crucial to becoming a legendary leader. He outlines ideas that might seem basic at first glance, but are vital for the continued success of any organization. Succeeding in the Battle for Well-Being – As each of us continues striving toward excellence, we often neglect our own well-being. When this occurs, the consequences can be overwhelming and harsh. In a time when we are asked to achieve significant results—with or without the aid of ample resources—our physical, emotional, and spiritual states can be threatened. Throughout this thoughtful presentation, Paul establishes user-friendly strategies that are essential when moving toward a more balanced life. Learning to recognize and manage anxiety, make ongoing healthy decisions, and motivate oneself are strategies that equal positive results.

Resolving Team Conflict Effectively – Resolving conflict within a team is crucial for optimal results in the areas of productivity, growth, and morale. When continued struggles, animosity, or disagreements become the focal point of various individuals’ attention, the entire organization is affected. Properly executed, conflict resolution causes people to listen to and consider different perspectives, contributing to a positive culture rather than a hostile environment. The concepts put forth in this presentation will enable individuals to minimize negative behaviors, broaden their alternatives, and manage conflict constructively. Inspired Teamwork & Leadership – The strength of a team is centered on the individuals who comprise the group; the strength of a leader begins with the team. In Inspired Teamwork & Leadership, Paul details significant traits that bring cohesiveness to any team. Uniting for a common cause, understanding and respecting diversity, and encouraging individuals through positive actions are all elements of this empowering presentation.
You Choose Your Change – Making a change or an adjustment often produces a certain degree of discomfort. Studies have shown that in order to take action, the disadvantages of a current behavior must be strong enough to encourage an individual to recognize that a change needs to occur. During You Choose Your Change, Paul outlines seven important concepts that revolve around the idea of change, and challenges participants to consider each aspect of their lives and how beneficial making a positive adjustment can be. The WOW Factor—Presenting with Ease – As individuals, we converse casually on a daily basis. We become comfortable with our own presentation styles and the ability to persuade others to comprehend our messages. A distinct change takes place, though, when asked to transition from those many individualized conversations to sharing thoughts with an entire group. During The WOW Factor – Presenting with Ease, Paul reveals critical techniques that are essential when

striving to become a more polished presenter. Regardless of the industry, learning how to successfully utilize body language, organize thoughts and content, understand group dynamics, respond to audience questions, and deliver what you have prepared in the most compelling manner are crucial in the attainment of achievement. Community Support & Partnerships – The infancy of successful programs, social movements, and partnerships begins with a shared vision that over time has the potential to breed greatness within the confines of a community, as well as beyond. For many, what begins as challenging the process is turned into a vision that develops into a greater idea, fueled by those who are encouraged to take ownership in the cause. It is critical that the most effective strategic plan is put in place at the beginning of any project, knowing the limitations of both manpower and dollar power. Participants will be challenged to focus on the small things that will help garner future success.

Effective Meetings—Steps to Success – The business world today revolves around a productive exchange of ideas, practices, and goals, typically conducted in a properly facilitated forum. Organized procedures aligned with active and eager participation are often determining factors for a meeting’s effectiveness and success. During this engaging presentation, Paul demonstrates concepts crucial to being a successful facilitator. By following a few simple rules and not being afraid to change how things have been done in the past, meetings can once again become empowering and productive.

It is crucial that the most effective plan be implemented to maximize exposure, knowing that relevance and timeliness matter.

With this in mind, participants will be challenged by Paul on the planning, process, and persistence needed in order to achieve their desired results. Office, Email, & Social Media—Etiquette for a New Age – The evolving landscape of electronic tools has taken personal as well as professional communication to a new level. The opportunity to share information instantaneously with a client, colleague, or friend through email, social media, and texting not only broadens our possibilities for success; it exponentially expands the potential for a negative interactive experience as well, and quite possibly a faux pas that can end a friendship or career. In the thought-provoking workshop Office, Email, & Social Media—Etiquette for a New Age, Paul shares ideas and strategies to keep your persona and reputation intact. Staring Down Disorganization – If disorganization is hampering you and, as a consequence, a feeling of frustration and being scattered sets in, then it’s time to stare down disorganization and win. To achieve order on the outside,

you must adjust your state of mind from the inside. During this essential workshop, Paul encourages participants to clarify priorities; decide what belongs and what must go; tackle a need versus want assessment; and simplify, simplify, simplify. These concepts, along with a variety of others, will be shared during the presentation, Staring Down Disorganization. Becoming better organized not only takes time but a committed attitude to change deep-seated behaviors. If you begin today, a year from now you will be glad you did. The Ultimate College Experience – Many have the opportunity to attend college, but not everyone has a favorable experience. Paul shows students how to make this period a defining chapter of life. He speaks from his experiences of being the president of his college fraternity, vice president of the student body, a baseball letterman, and a student orientation director. Students will be encouraged to make the best of each situation that is presented and to remember that a good education is extremely valuable.

Opportunities to learn and exercise a variety of skill sets while developing and maintaining healthy relationships are just a few benefits of the entire process. To make your campus chapter more relevant and successful, Paul shares a number of his personal successes and failures as the president of his fraternity, while intertwining positive ideals and practices. The significance of the Greek experience has powerful implications for success beyond the campus. Are You Puzzled by the Puzzle of Life? – We all have dreams and ambitions; however, at times it is easy to become baffled and challenged by the jigsaw puzzle of life. Paul takes the precepts outlined in his national best-selling book, Are You Puzzled by the Puzzle of Life? and gives participants a user friendly roadmap for making sense of their life puzzles. Parental Involvement—What a Difference It Makes – When parents choose to be involved in their children’s education positive results occur. From improved student achievement to reduced absenteeism, parental involvement is critical for educational success. During this interactive presentation, Paul encourages open discussion and shares pertinent ideas and concepts. Enlisting the aid and support of parents provides a better chance to develop children’s social, emotional, and academic growth. Partners in Achievement—Strengthening the Future – Countless studies indicate that to help children reach their full potential parental involvement is a must. Improved academic achievement, a greater respect for the importance of education, and an eagerness to maximize post-graduation opportunities are only a few of the benefits realized when active parents model the way. During this presentation for parents, Paul shares a number of thoughts and concepts related to parents’ roles in academic success and reinforces ideas related to the importance between what takes place in the classroom and what takes place at home. Promoting the cooperation of parents provides a better opportunity for strengthening our children’s future.
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT OFFERINGS Peak Performance U—7 Essential Skills for the Workplace – Achieving peak performance on a consistent basis is often opposed by countless challenges, frustrations, and disappointments. The lack of thorough preparation, due diligence, and accountability are frequently the culprits. Many well-intended students create one strategy after the next, but fall short in the implementation process. The foundation of the content found in Peak Performance U – 7 Essential Skills for the Workplace is in response to the guidance and requirements of various businesses and industries eager to align, promote, and train students for viable future careers. Through role-playing, mock interviews, interactive videos, and energetic activities, Paul builds rapport with students that inspires steady, long-lasting results. Regardless of the career field or cluster, Peak Performance U – 7 Essential Skills for the Workplace speaks to critical skills that business and industry have identified as vital. Setting the Tempo for Achievement – Whether a student chooses to strive toward the attainment of a post-secondary education or enter the workforce directly, now is the time to continue challenging learners to set the correct tempo for career achievement. Following much research based on the proven character traits of those who have blazed trails before us, Paul developed the animated presentation Setting the Tempo for Achievement not only to encourage students to realize their maximum potential, but also to showcase individuals who have accomplished unforgettable success. Regardless of the career path one is setting their sights on, it is never to early to begin the preparation process. The more knowledge acquired about a particular occupation, the better equipped an individual will be when taking the next step. While preparing for the workforce, students should feel poised for success as they set the tempo for their own unique achievement! There is no better time than the present to once more instill a sense of self-pride and encouragement in the hearts and minds of students of all ages.
It’s amazing what an
impact PaulVitale can have in a young person’s life. l H A Hero Within—Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders was established in 2004 to provide today’s youth with the opportunities needed to take longer strides in learning, life, and legacy. This program impacts our youth by providing the many tools necessary to help shape their lives in the most positive manner, while challenging these future leaders to genuinely answer the question, “How do I choose to live my life?” Vision Today’s youth are tasked with leading our nation into the future. At the same time, they’re increasingly confronted with difficult issues such as suicide, drug and alcohol addiction, pregnancy, peer pressure, obesity, depression, cyber bullying, and domestic violence. These future leaders are in search of a message of affirmation and hope, and a program to provide each of them with the mechanism to choose a path that will positively define their life’s legacy. The opportunities for a constructive all-around outreach provided by this unique program can reverse the trend of growing statistics. The current numbers are alarming: 7,000 students each school day or 1.2 million each year drop out of school; 60% of identified bullies have a criminal conviction by age 24; and according to the American Psychiatric Association, suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24. Simply stated, more teenagers are dying from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, and chronic lung disease combined. To answer the need for a course of life-skills strength training, Paul Vitale has developed the unique program, A Hero Within—Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders as a life strategy for students to continue to grow and improve personally, emotionally, and intellectually. Anchored by four mutually supporting facets, the strategy set forth not only champions the positive growth of our future generation of leaders, A Hero Within also encourages today’s youth to answer this one incredibly important question: “How do I choose to live my life?”

A Hero Within Parent Assembly & Focus Group Countless studies indicate that to help children reach their full potential, parental involvement is a must. This important component reinforces the facets that comprise the overall program, promoting the cooperation and support of parents, providing increased opportunities for ensuring the success of students. Sustainability After the initial year of the A Hero Within—Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders program implementation, subsequent personnel trainings, student assemblies, and parent presentations are available to keep the program’s momentum at full steam. Realizing the flux of the student body, along with the importance of presenting fresh and exciting content to your school personnel, parents, and guardians, Paul is available to return to your school periodically to renew interest, generate excitement, and reinforce the concepts taught daily in your classrooms. In addition, existing curriculum kit components and future additions are available for individual purchase to supplement and replenish your supply.

energy and enthusiasm are not only uplifting they’re contagious.
EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION COACHING Effective Presentation Methods & Fundamentals With countless messages shared continually, an individual’s ability to convey a precise point while building rapport and maintaining the attention of others is crucial to the overall outcome. As a seasoned presenter, Paul recognizes that being able to communicate a complete all-around message is vital; nonetheless, the manner in which it is delivered makes the message either succeed with the audience or plummet. Simply stated, “Understanding a subject matter well and being able to effectively communicate it are two vastly different things.” Whether coaching clients one-on-one or training in large group settings, Paul teaches fundamental techniques that he has personally implemented throughout his speaking career, proven to obtain positive results. The five areas of concentration Paul shares have each been scrutinized extensively and can be immediately implemented into your arsenal as an effective communicator. These areas include:
• Organization and creation of a complete message • Approach and delivery of a successful message • Audience participation and response • Effective vocal delivery and composure • Development of visual support and multimedia Other components of this interactive training include how to effectively utilize body language, organize thoughts and content, develop and employ visuals and illustrations, manage anxiety, understand group dynamics, respond to audience questions, and deliver what you have prepared in the most compelling manner. Once comfortable with the core methods introduced, you will be able to demonstrate them when entering into the “video evaluation” segment of the instruction. This incredibly important process acknowledges, quantifies, and further develops improvements that have been achieved. Research indicates that employers today are searching for those who possess the expertise to craft and deliver

a memorable message. Becoming more empowered as an effective presenter will not only pay dividends in the short term, but also have a profound effect for years to come. Regardless of the occupation, this impactful training is valuable to all who are eager to reach new levels as successful orators!
STRATEGIC PLANNING & FACILITATING Strategic Planning Regardless of the size of any organization, incorporating a systematic process increases the odds of long-term growth. Business owners and managers are often so preoccupied with immediate challenges that they lose sight of their ultimate goals and objectives. Because of this, the review of internal processes along with the preparation of a functional strategic plan is vital. As the moderator of your planning session, Paul brings a forward-thinking approach that garners results. His six-step process entails the following:
