I first heard Richard Martinez speak at an event in Long Beach, California, in 2019 with thousands of people in attendance. From the moment Richard started speaking, I knew there something special about Richard as a speaker. I was impressed by how he carried himself, his positive energy, how he engaged with the audience, and the life-changing content he provided during his talk. Richard speaks with conviction, confidence and is a living example of what he preaches. Richard inspires and motivates other to become the best version of themselves and to get rid of any obstacles they have in their life. I have been in rooms where Richard would host webinars, and I would see the positive impact he would have on the audience in the room. I would see breakthroughs by the end of the meeting. My experience with Richard as a speaker has been inspirational, motivating, and nothing short of extraordinary. Personally, I know Richard has made a positive impact in my life as he has inspired me to become the best version of myself and be an example to inspire others to do the same.

Creating Success in Your Career or Business – The 5 Most Important Skills

This is about leadership. When we think of leadership, many people have different expectations and views of what a leader should be. We're going to begin to define the Five Levels of Leadership that you need to be able to build on. You don't build one level and leave it. It is something that you continually do as a leader because a leader is always learning. Leadership and influence are subtle yet incredibly powerful. You can order someone to do a task, but you cannot order them to do their best. It simply does not work and usually has the opposite effect. You can influence people to do their best by providing a strong and motivating example in addition to positive reinforcement. Leadership addresses tasks, while influence addresses attitudes and awareness. Influence is the soul of leadership.

  • Level 1: Self-Leadership
  • Level 2: Are you in a Leadership Position?
  • Level 3: How to Create Influence
  • Level 4: Getting the Results
  • Level 5: Becoming an Efficient Team Builder
