WALDO WALDMAN

Motivational keynote speaker Lt. Col. (Ret.) Rob "Waldo" Waldman - The Wingman - is a motivational speaker and author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Never Fly Solo. He teaches organizations and individuals how to build trusting, revenue producing relationships with their employees, partners, and customers while sharing his experiences as a combat decorated fighter pilot and businessman.

Known as "the Wingman," he teaches organizations how to build trusting, revenue producing relationships with their employees, partners and customers while relaying his personal experiences as a combat decorated fighter pilot and businessman. He makes a striking parallel that is memorable and exciting and brings fighter pilot energy and passion into each story and illustration.

His message is simple: Whether achieving greatness as a fighter pilot or in business, the same qualities that drive success apply: disciplined training, dedicated teamwork, impassioned leadership and most of all...unwavering trust. Waldo believes that the key to building a culture of trust lies with your Wingmen -- those trusted partners in life who help you to overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and achieve success. In business and life, you should never fly solo! The way to win when the heat is on lies in the ability of every Wingmen in your organization, regardless of their role, to give 110% and support the team.

A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Waldo overcame claustrophobia and a fear of heights to become a highly decorated F-16 fighter pilot and lead combat missions in Iraq and Serbia. He holds a MBA with a focus on Organizational Behavior, is past President of the Georgia Chapter of The National Speakers Association and was ranked one of the Top 40 Business Leaders in Georgia.

Having transitioned from Top Gun to top salesman and entrepreneur, his unique experiences in competitive and diverse environments enable him to genuinely relate to the challenges individuals face both in and out of the workplace. Audiences love Waldo because he truly speaks from the heart and has an infectious passion for helping people. His captivating personal stories combined with dramatic jet fighter video footage and inspirational music (composed by him!) will encourage you to prepare diligently for every mission, face challenges with courage, build more meaningful relationships and maximize your potential both in business and in life.

  • Never Fly Solo!® : The Power of Partnership to Reach New Heights in Business and Life - Winners Never Fly Solo®. Flying solo in business? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff, co-workers and managers. You have suppliers, vendors, and distributors. And you have colleagues, family members and significant others. In our super-charged, highly competitive world of rapid and constant change, those who build trust and work as a team will dodge the missiles of business and win. By committing yourself to excellence and by placing your trust in your team, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing your trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to your clients, partners and co-workers, there is no business mission you can't complete!

    This keynote is not about relating combat tactics to winning in business. Rather, it's about focusing on what really matters in business - building unwavering trust and serving your customers and co-workers. It's about how to win with integrity in highly competitive environments through disciplined training, dedicated teamwork, and courageous leadership.

  • Wingman Leadership: How to Build a Culture of Courage in Business and Life! - The key to building a high powered organization that encourages innovative thinking, loyalty to the mission, and a relentless commitment to excellence lies with its leadership. In this high energy workshop, Waldo highlights the difference between managing people and leading them to be responsible, empowered and confident wingmen. What results is a more productive and efficient organization with superior morale that can rapidly overcome challenges in a competitive marketplace. As trusting and reliable wingmen, an organization that leads to win has four distinct characteristics:
    • Shared Vision - Each and every wingman in the organization knows exactly what they are fighting for. They are committed to the mission, and understand exactly how their unique role in the organization is essential to its success.
    • Values Based Culture - Integrity, accountability, mutual respect, and teamwork serve as the foundation for all relationships internally with co-workers, and externally with partners and clients.
    • Effective Communication - Leaders listen aggressively and communicate their vision with passion. They promote open communication and connect with the heart and soul of their wingmen.
    • Train to Win Mindset - Successful leaders command flawless preparation, not flawless execution! They encourage their wingmen to expand their capabilities, and consistently reward high performers who take calculated risks and 'push the envelope' in order to grow.
