  • Do you understand the importance of integrating the principles of dependence, independence and interdependence for the purpose of creating a more synergistic team?
  • Would you like to gain, train, sustain and retain your top talent by focusing on "The Five Greatest Traits of A Team Member"?
  • Are five insidious behaviors sabotaging your team chemistry? Would you like to know how to cultivate a more caring, collaborative and cohesive unit?



Teamwork isn’t optional in the U.S. Marine Corps, a lesson Dick Biggs learned well as a leatherneck sergeant. It started in boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina and continued throughout his duty on the elite security guard program at the American embassies in Warsaw, Poland and Rome, Italy. Dick learned that teamwork is a derivative of great leadership. An organization tends to sink on the excessive ego of its leader, or soar on the wings of a peak-performing team.

Dick’s highly interactive TeAmWORK programs (little me, BIG TEAM!) will teach you how to mold a group of diverse individuals into a dynamic dream team based on this sage advice from the Harvard Business Review: “In a real team, no individual member can win or lose; only the group can succeed or fail.”

Additionally, Dick was a certified trainer for John Maxwell’s The 17 Indisputable Laws Of Teamwork, a program he did countless times over a five-year period.

“None of us is as smart as all of us.”

  • Do you truly appreciate the value of one-on-one leadership, which is the pairing up of a less experienced person (protégé) with a more seasoned person (mentor)?
  • Do you know the four benchmarks of a master mentor? Would you like to discover how your protégés can shorten their learning curve and accelerate their growth?
  • Has your organization’s mentoring program failed to produce the desired results? Are you aware of the five essential elements that determine the long-term success of a mentoring program?


 
Dick Biggs has been a connoisseur of master mentors since his teenage years. Miss Eloise Penn, his English teacher, newspaper advisor and speech coach for three years at East Atlanta High School, taught Dick the communication skills that have enabled him to succeed in three careers – journalism, sales, and professional speaking/authoring.

After years of telling his audiences about Miss Penn and many other master mentors, Dick created Maximize Your Moments With The Masters, a mentoring program that’s delivered in shorter versions such as a keynote or seminar; or a yearlong curriculum with the option to purchase the rights to this material in a train-the-trainer format.


Additionally, Dick has a yearlong mentoring program for insurance agents focused on growth and greatness. It includes monthly telephone conversations; monthly customized articles; ongoing email access between the one-hour conversations each month; a full-day of training/consultation at your agency; and resources for each team member.

“There is no success without a successor.”

–Peter Drucker

“Living is a balancing act in which we measure the importance of every experience by where it fits between right and wrong, sadness and happiness, failure and success.”

–Elmo Ellis, Happiness Is Worth The Effort

A speaking & training resource to ensure extraordinary meetings
  • Do you struggle to balance the work you need with the life you lead? In short, are you burning brightly or burning out? Note: Burn out is the extinguishing of your spiritual, mental, physical or emotional enthusiasm.
  • Would you like to manage stress by making time for serenity? How well are you observing "The Eight Elite Enhancers of Longer Life"?
  • Do you know that you can maintain a reasonably balanced life by using "The Master Plan Funnel Concept" as a daily focus tool?



After thirteen years in sales and sales management, Dick Biggs quit a lucrative career and didn’t work for five months. He was a burned-out workaholic. Two major events changed everything in late 1982. Dick started his company; and he met Judy, who became his wife two years later. Entrepreneurship helped him realize there’s more to career satisfaction than making money. Judy was the catalyst in Dick’s return to the Christian foundation of his upbringing.

This pivotal turning point inspired Dick to author If Life Is A Balancing Act, Why Am I So Darn Clumsy? and Burn Brightly Without Burning Out. He learned these life-changing lessons: (1) Burn out is optional. (2) There’s no such thing as a perfectly balanced life. (3) Time can’t be managed because today will end and tomorrow is coming whether you manage it or not; what you can manage is yourself and where you spend your time.
