What Dan Clark Talks About:
THE ART OF SIGNIFICANT LEADERSHIP: INFLUENTIAL IMPACT
Dan teaches the purpose of a leader is to grow more leaders who believe what you believe – not generate more followers. In this way, everybody feels like a valued ‘influencer with a voice’ who will lead with and without a title – regardless of age, race, gender or experience. Dan uses his three step A.R.T. acronym, to:
• Increase Awareness of current personal and organizational ‘core values’ and teaches the culture of any organization is created between the strongest belief, highest expectation and best behavior the leader lives by – and the weakest belief, lowest expectation and worst behavior the leader tolerates;
• Refines the ways in which you prepare yourself and others for greater responsibilities by increasing self-worth, perfecting performance, cultivating the proper image and managing your exposure to decision makers;
• Delivers a Transformational plan that creates a culture of Significant Partners who hold themselves accountable and care as much about the organization as the leaders do
Mindset Take-A-Ways: Leadership is not a noun, it’s an action verb – it’s not assigned, it’s earned; It is not enough to say, ‘I will do my best.’ We must succeed in doing that which is necessary!
THE ART OF SIGNIFICANT COMMUNICATION: THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
How to Network & Influence Through Speaking & Storytelling
Dan has been teaching the Law of Attraction for years and explains we don’t attract who we want – we attract who we are – we attract what we believe we deserve. Because we become the average of the five people we associate with the most, in order to attract extraordinary associates, we must first be an extraordinary human being and inspiring to be around.
Steve Jobs said, “The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller who unlocks a shared dream.” Warren Buffet said, “Mastering public speaking is the #1 skill to boost a career and raise your personal value by 50%.”
• Attendees will learn the Speakers Triangle that dissects communication into three questions: Why should I listen to you? (credibility) Can I do it too? (possibility) – How do I do it? (usability) – knowing people don’t care how much we know until they know how much we care.
• Attendees will leave knowing how to craft and tell a powerful story equipped with the skills required to choose the right story at the right time to release endorphins, dopamine, oxytocin or serotonin to influence why and how people take action!
Dan teaches his tools that helped him become a master storyteller so you can connect with your employees, customers and audience’s with emotion, empathy and influence.
THE ART OF SIGNIFICANT TEAM BUILDING: OUTCOACH YOUR COMPETITION
“Under pressure, you don’t step up your game – you succumb to the level of your preparation and training. When you know what you’ve been trained to do, there is never any pressure!”
Dan’s 13 years as an American football star is coupled with his track record of turning NFL teams into Super Bowl Champions, and transforming ‘stuck’ organizations into ‘sensational.’ He’s a recognized Coach, turning organizations into high-performing teams. Dan’s time-tested strategies are based on core values, high expectations and increased
accountability to guarantee peak performance. Using his A.R.T. philosophy, Dan teaches the difference between training to fight and training to win. He walks your group through his TEN COMMITMENTS TO BUILDING A WINNING TEAM.
Dan explains: There is no ‘I’ in team, but there are two ‘I’s in winning:
− Individual preparation makes winning personal.
− Interdependent collaboration makes winning organizational.

your weak links and attracting, recruiting, inspiring and retaining top talent!
Safety Doesn’t Happen by Accident
“It’s better to build a fence at the edge of acliff than to park an ambulance at its base.”
Known for his quick wit and unconventional examples of what happens when we lose concentration and become complacent, Dan reminds everybody that safety is the thread that connects Ownership, Management, Contractors and Organized Labor. When everyone makes safety a priority through increased Trust, Mutual Respect, SelfDiscipline and Service Before Self, employee morale and productivity increases to drive improved profitability.
Having fought his way back from a paralyzing injury that cut short his football career, Dan teaches safety is more than following rules – it’s a way of life!
Using his A.R.T philosophy Dan shares his proven process for revitalizing your company safety culture by staying focused, eliminating distractions, being consistent and catching each other doing something right.
