The most frequent comment you hear after EVERY Sam Glenn motivational speech is,
“That’s just what I needed!”

Sam Glenn’s motivational speeches are gleaned from his own life experiences of successes and failures. Having lost a very successful business due to a fire, Sam became negative, broke, depressed, jobless and homeless – almost overnight. It was a chance encounter and subsequent friendship with Zig Ziglar that eventually gave Sam a “Kick in the Attitude.” It was a gift that changed his attitude – and his life – for the better. Within two years, Sam went from sleeping on the floor to achieving dreams he once thought impossible.

Sam’s ability to pull positivity out of adversity has led him to become the leading voice on the topic of attitude as it relates to being a leader, dealing with change, cultivating a culture of engagement, improving customer service and improving your personal and professional development. Over the years, Sam Glenn has been the “go-to” resource for hundreds of organizations where positive people engaged in positive action are valued.

A Kick in the Attitude (An Attitude Re-Charge!)

Winner of a Telly Award for Most Outstanding Motivational Training Video.

Our attitude is a lot like a battery and sometimes it loses it’s positive charge. Sam not only puts that positive spark into everyone’s attitude, but shows how to maintain that positive spark in the midst of adversity and the things that drain us. Sam discusses how we make attitude a choice everyday and that our attitude is either in the way or making a way and we determine which everyday.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes people (audiences) get a little bit of an attitude when they find out there is going to be a speaker on attitude? It’s ok, Sam loves when that happens. Sam has won over what many would consider the toughest audiences with up-lifting attitude recharge. By the time this session is over, everyone will have a new appraisal for the true value of attitude and how it pertains to life and work.

Sam’s simple philosophy is that it all starts with attitude: Success, Teamwork, Customer Service, Sales, Leadership, Personal/Professional Development, Winning, and Relationships.

This program is designed to rekindle your organization’s enthusiasm. More than just having a positive attitude, Sam discusses ways to put the right attitude into action and how doing so will achieve the best results. While we cannot control what goes on around us, we can control our perceptions, responses and actions, which ultimately form our attitude. In this side-splitting humorous program Sam shares his seven attitude lessons that will transform your organization.

The Art of Leadership by Sam Glenn is an engaging and artistic speech that will provide you with some exciting ideas that you can apply to bring new levels of performance in the workplace.

Sam Glenn offers some incredible insights on how to step out of your comfort zone and inspire people to greater levels of progress, productivity and success.
A recent survey of 1700 CEO’s in 64 countries were asked what they felt were the top leadership qualities…

They responded:

Being customer focused – being able to serve the needs of those you serve
Being able to collaborate and work well with others
Being able to INSPIRE others. (Sam’s Specialty!)

However, the study showed that most didn’t understand or know exactly how to “inspire” others in measurable and tangible ways. What we have learned is that to inspire people, it is a process similar to starting the WAVE at a football game – if you are persistent, passionate and engage people with the right attitude and implement a few simple strategic actions, you can achieve incredible levels of success. Every leader walks through the valley of rejection, criticism, failure and unexpected changes, but Sam’s inspiring speech will empower you and give you more confidence in becoming an inspiring leader.
The Art of Becoming an Inspirational Leader Covers The Following:

Discover a leader’s #1 best friend for being a great leader.
How our communication determines responses in others.

The Gift of Attitude is about creating exceptional experiences for others.

The ART of Positive ChangePositive change starts with our attitude. Change is uncomfortable, inconvenient but can be the greatest spring board to positive growth and new adventures. A few years ago, Sam Glenn was asked by his client if he would create a change management speech that was encouraging, entertaining, inspiring, humorous and uplifting. They needed a program to enhance the thought of “change” in positive ways. Sam devised a program for them entitled, “The Art of Positive Change”.
If a ride at the amusement park was named “CHANGE MANAGEMENT”, it might not be a big attraction. But, we are all on this change management ride every day. Change isn’t easy, but there are some positive aspects to it that can make it very rewarding if we allow ourselves to be open to it.
The ART of Positive Change might just be one of the best presentations your group listens to on embracing change with the right attitude. Sam Glenn will tailor his message to touch key points on the changes that your group is going through and he will create an interpretation of how to embrace it and benefit from it. Everyone will laugh and feel uplifted during the presentation. They will leave this message feeling energized and view change in a whole different light.
Sam is no stranger to dealing with change. Once riddled with a negative attitude, Sam knocked over the legendary Zig Ziglar at a buffet and the friendship they developed set Sam’s attitude in a new direction. Sam is an entrepreneur who understands the ups and downs of business, but the one thing that should always be consistent is having, keeping and sharing the right attitude. It all starts with attitude!
For the past 19 years, Sam Glenn has given more than 100 speeches a year to companies big and small and to some audiences as large as 75,000 at stadium events.
