Michael Lombardi's Speech Topics

Everything Starts with Culture

Culture precedes positive results. It does not get tacked on as an afterthought, on the way to a championship. It starts from day one, with everyone adhering to a standard of performance.

In this session, Michael Lombardi uses stories and case studies from his time working with NFL’s most significant leaders, like Bill Belichick, Bill Walsh, to engage audiences in understanding how and why culture is the foundation for sustainable success in organizations across all industries. Participants will walk away with knowledge of how culture is built, maintain, and, most of all, how the workforce re-generates the right culture daily.

Winning on the Gridiron and in the Boardroom

All sports, especially NFL football, are similar to any business organization, group or team. The foundations for building a championship team are the same for building a successful organization.

In this session, Michael Lombardi takes you inside the foundational structure of how the New England Patriots have been able to build an organizational dynasty over the past twenty years. The “Patriot Way” works in New England and can work for your organization. We learn that the Patriots model is easily transferable toward any business. The audience will leave the session with powerful ideas to implement at their organization.

The Secret to All Victory Lies in the Non-Obvious

Everyone can see what is essential and obvious. Still, those that can find the crucial non-obvious factors that determine victory will stay far ahead of their competition—being able to see what others don’t produce results.

In this session, Michael Lombardi takes the audience inside the proper process of decision-making. Lombardi will break down how to gain insights from analyzing connections, contradictions, coincidences, and curiosities, which then leads to the logic of discovery. The audience will leave this presentation with a new way to help quantify problems and then find the true essence of the solution.
