Is BreakAway relevant to us?
The success of your organization's most important initiatives is limited by the non-winning thoughts that creep into your peoples' minds. BreakAway is a non-threatening, innovative way to elevate thinking, especially in leaders.
Is BreakAway a message about competition?
Yes. People learn how to be positively engaged in the highest form of competitive excellence, on the job and in their personal lives.
What if I'm not athletic or into sports?
No problem. With such a universal message, it's often the least sports-minded people who identify most with Tony's approach. Of course, athletes and sports fans absolutely love it.
Can BreakAway be our conference theme?
About half of Tony's clients use or incorporate his racing metaphors into their conference themes and marketing.
