This presentation is based off my new book with the same title. It is a phrase I have been using for years with clients to make a point about getting from where you are now to where you want to go. Too often, fueled by an initial burst of growth, fueled by most enthusiasm, leaders and organizations take a giant leap forward into the unknown. This is when they need to "Beware of Alligators and Ugly Stuff." Alligators are people who are lurking below the surface just waiting patiently to strike to sabotage your plans. Ugly Stuff can be small things like poor communication, lack of clarity, resistance from people, silos, etc. Or major things like the loss of an important client or a poor revenue model. This keynote will stress the importance of not going on your journey to next level growth or success alone. You need a tour guide. You need a team. If it is to be, it is up to WE. The presentation will be customized for your event and/or organization. It is fun, direct, simple and effective. It will challenge you to think big for big success, but will also caution you to Beware of Alligators and Ugly Stuff.
