Jim’s Programs

Generous Listening = Sales

Professional merchants who solve problems for people and enterprises have gotten a bad rap for decades. Perhaps some of it was earned, but let’s break the stereotypes by redefining salesmanship in our own minds’ eye before we present it to a customer or potential client. If you want to break through the psychological barriers in the clients perspective then let’s change your viewpoint of the roles and responsibilities of a seller.

 

In this program about communication, Jim Tracy brings in thought methods as simple as a new way of thinking and as complex as determining the need for change. Let’s work on me so that I can benefit you! He will focus on the principles that established his business as a best in class that filtered through his learning points of the Entrepreneurial Contract Approach:

 

  • Shared Vision for Greatness
  • Passion for Quality
  • Obsession with Service
  • Thrive on Change
  • Embrace those Goals
The 7 C's of Leadership

Jim learned from some of the best leaders in American business. Those lessons were put into a capsule by one of his partners who suggested that rather than fighting great sayings that resonated with people including rough and tough rank and file labor, that we cherish the sayings. 

 

In this program we learn to accept and in fact adopt those old sayings as proverbs on how to be successful as a manager. No, it is not enough to just  spout clichés, but yes add zeal and understanding in virtually every business and service environment with just a few reliable adages that excite your staff and unite your management. Tracy also infuses his brand of intensity and humor in the how to resurrect your management style with the list of awesome “C”s!

 

  • Character
  • Competence
  • Clarity
  • Communication
  • Change
  • Courage
Create Generational Impact!

As he wrote in the soon to be published book entitled “Building Men”, Jim Tracy will recant the stories from a life of learning from men who invested in him. From teachers, family members and bosses, Tracy recalls the great moments though a collection of memories that benefit the listener and motivate the hearer through history and humor. 

 

Tracy adds the discovery points that highlight how we learn and how we can make those lessons more beneficial and valuable. The time we take today, the time we invest in the young people who represent the future, must occur on an incremental yet repeated basis. Most of the knowledge that old people have come in two distinct forms of learning.

 

  • Training through trauma and high tuition
  • Experiential lessons with prepaid tuition
Fear - Take It Captive

Fear is the natural consequence of failure to understand risk. Jim’s experiences are filled with fear that has been overcome through the measurement of risk. By teaching how to “Get the Ordinary – Perfect” Jim allows us to trail along the experiences of life that have led him to embrace fear. He might just be the most fearful guy you’ll ever meet, but it has been put to work!

From Flying Jets to co-founding a family business from scratch and merging it with a larger entity, Jim has done a good sized boatload of scary things. In this program Jim’s high tuition experiences will help you learn that:

  • Fear creates a Terrific Contingency Plan
  • Fear Can Be Overcome
  • Fear Can Be Utilized
  • Fear is an Awesome Slave but a terrible Master
3 - R's, Generational Melting Pot

Jim Tracy has been renamed by his grandson Wes. He is not Grandpa anymore. He is not Champion any longer. He is GRAMPION! Yes, this fella is old school, but the kids like to listen to him because he understands that the lessons of history provide us with incredible tools to engage the culture we live in. Jim was raised by the Traditionalists, born a Baby Boomer, Raised both Gen X and Millennial Kids and has fourteen Gen Z and Gen Alpha Grandkids.

 

Grampion is convinced we have a communication problem and he has at least some of the answers, and you will not expect them! He loves to engage the cross generational crowds without technology and get some of those Boomer to laugh a little! The younger audiences have loved his learning points because the blame goes everywhere and the solutions craft victories for each person, not each generation!

 

  • Work together on these learning points:
  • Transfer of Information
  • Actual Meaning of Information
  • Receipt of Information
  • Making Respect Cool, Groovy, Rad, Bad and Dope
