Speech Topics
MaGuire's Absolutes-The Immutable Laws of Success: Through stories and examples, the audience will walk away with a thorough understanding of "Maguire's Absolutes" - a set of immutable truths and practical skills that contributed to the success of FedEx, KFC, ABC, BMW, COKE and American Airlines. This keynote and workshop is about PEOPLE not process. Maguire will speak about three 'spiritual' qualities-feelings, attitudes, and relationships-that lead to successful, dedicated and motivated individuals, and by definition, successful companies.

We Cannot Not Communicate-People do Business with People they Like: We communicate by our presence, by our absence, our silence and our words. We do it by our choices, gestures and attitudes. We may not always do it well. But, we always do it. In "We Cannot NOT Communicate", Maguire teach proven leadership communication skills that are guaranteed to improve the productive energy in your company as well as your earnings.

The Employers R.O.I.-The Three Keys to a Motivated and Dedicated Workforce: Just as any corporation analyzes the return on their investment, your employees expect a return on the investment they make in you. Too often, the employees' ROI goes unrecognized. Today's employees aren't looking for a home, what they want is Recognition, opportunity and a chance to get involved. The personal stories, experiences and skills Maguire speaks about in "The Employees' ROI" demonstrate how the "Investment" in three key components will lead to the credibility, respect, openness and trust required to build a winning team, increased productivity, and earnings.
