Keynote Topics

The Blue Angel approach to leadership is unique and inspires trust through confidence, with open and honest communication. Every team member is a leader driving expectations.

Greg “BOSS” Wooldridge is a top leadership keynote speaker and 3x Leader of The Blue Angels which has never been done before in the Navy history. Greg challenges leaders to build trust, improve performance, and create elite teams.

Teams become elite because of leadership, a commitment to excellence and a proven process. As companies transform their DNA and pivot their business to compete in the new digital paradigm, the ability to develop transformational leadership and enable workforce evolution is a critical competitive advantage.

The potential of elite performance lives within every individual, every team and every organization. It takes intentional leadership to enable that potential and turn it into focused action.

Blue Angel precision is built on a solid foundation of teamwork around a common objective or CenterPoint. Unified alignment collapses barriers and creates a powerful culture of action.

Greg “BOSS” Wooldridge is a teamwork keynote speaker and Greg “BOSS” Wooldridge is a top leadership keynote speaker and 3x Leader of The Blue Angels. That has never been done before in the Navy history. He challenges today’s leaders to elevate collaboration and develop deep trust among teams.

Teamwork is the collective potential of individuals harnessed to create an exponential outcome of a unit.  Effective teamwork requires many variables including trust, communication, a belief in purpose greater than self, and a common goal.

A CenterPoint is a single reference point or a shared goal that holds the collective focus of a team. The concept of CenterPoint can be used to create unified, powerful action in any organization. A well and clearly communicated CenterPoint helps individuals maintain vision of goals and objectives.

For teams, an effective CenterPoint keeps actions focused on priorities, while inspiring collaboration, which leads to faster outcomes, innovation and elevated trust.

Identifying and aligning your teams on a CenterPoint keeps action directed toward desired outcomes while still allowing teams to be adaptable.

How would your teams perform if there was complete inherent trust in each other and the organization?  Implicit contracts are all around us. They bind our world together, and they are part of the natural fabric of any business.

Research shows that vocalizing contracts and establishing them in a formal agreement can lead to increased productivity because both employees and managers recognize the risk inherent in breaking trust contracts.

Acknowledging and improving these agreements can have substantial positive effects. Because contracts permeate the entire organization, turning your attention to them has the ability to elevate both trust in individuals and teams.

Contracts present an opportunity to build trust. Trust is well known as a necessary component—if not the most important variable—of successful teams.

High Performance Mindset, is a process, and a commitment to a culture of excellence that accelerates every day performance and achievement.

Greg “BOSS” Wooldridge is a High Performance Keynote speaker who has developed a framework that is foundational to high performing teams. High Performance is a journey toward excellence and elevated execution that has the power to carry individuals and teams beyond their expectations.

Greg will take you on an incredible journey as he leads the world’s preeminent pilots, who have mastered landing on an aircraft carrier’s pitching deck at night, to a level of skill seemingly impossible to achieve; flying safely and steadily 18″ apart at 400 miles per hour.

Elevated choices create elevated results. Making better choices isn’t about knowing the future, it’s about setting yourself up for success, every single day.  Learning from the past is the key to plotting the future. There’s no better way to examine the past than through a debrief.

Research has shown the effects of a positive mindset. When our mind is grateful, it changes the way we see the world. It re-centers our priorities, it activates emotions that lead to happiness and it leaves us in a more open state, willing to embrace otherwise unforeseen opportunities. With a grateful mindset, we can see our options and their outcomes more clearly.

Beginning with a culture that is founded on a sense of gratitude and trust, “BOSS” will guide you through a performance-elevating framework that can be applied to any challenge. You will learn the way in which exceptional growth in team and personal performance can be achieved even though your journey, like his, may have been ‘littered with rose thorns and not rose pedals.’

People and teams operate at the level of their beliefs. When we raise the level of those beliefs, performance will follow.

A simple self-reflection on limiting and liberating beliefs can create new alignment and precision in individuals and teams.

Perception is reality. What leaders, teams, and individuals believe drives behavior and a level of performance that mirrors those beliefs. This is true for both the high end performers and the lower end performers.

So what is the difference? What separates the best from the rest and what separates the best from the best?

Performance is directly linked to short term beliefs and long-term mindset. A leader’s mindset and emotional intelligence is a proven critical element of high performing teams. When you evaluate performance in any industry, leadership often is the differentiator above skill and experience.

Greg “BOSS” Wooldridge will describe the importance of setting clear expectations so that that each and every team member can achieve superior performance while realizing a purpose larger than self. The game-changer, the Glad to Be Here Debrief, will amaze with its simplicity yet powerful application.

Glad To Be Here® is a mindset that opens the door to higher performance. Teams and individuals that embrace a grateful, positive mindset as a core belief will improve their communication, inspire commitment and buy in to group objectives, all while opening their mind to enable new perspectives to recognize opportunities for success.
