Thomas Winninger lives by the belief that everyone has an innate gift, imbued in them at birth. Over many years of analysis, he has discovered that the purposeful application of this gift is key to achieving fulfillment, joy and meaning in life.

Thomas's own gift is the ability to help people look within themselves, unpack their gift and apply its purpose to realize their full potential. But he didn't always know it.

For nearly 30 years, Thomas built a successful career as America's Market Strategist. He worked closely with powerful companies such as John Deere, Trek Bicycle and Patterson Dental to help them gain market share and sustain growth. He parlayed his success into an influential speaking career, sharing his expertise on platforms at over 3,000 conferences, writing for more than 300 trade journals and authoring 7 books.

His career skyrocketed. By the time he was 53 years old, he had achieved a remarkable level of professional success and even completed his personal "bucket list." Still, he was unfulfilled. Then, on October 23, 2001, Thomas had an epiphany that would change the course of his life. He suddenly realized that his career success meant nothing to his joy, his fulfillment or his legacy. Although he had built a successful career, he felt as though he had failed at life. But why?

After that fateful day, Thomas embarked on an extraordinary journey to discover the answer. That journey led him to strengthen his connections to his wife, his kids and his entire family; to find joy in his relationships; to serve those around him; to become closer to God and to apply his innate gift with purpose. He ultimately came to understand himself and how to best give to others the gift he was given at birth.

Today, people from all walks of life come to Thomas to discover their gifts, embarking on their own journeys toward self-fulfillment, meaning and joy. Just as Thomas used to help companies sustain growth and find success, he now helps both individuals and organizations discover their true paths, reveal their innate gifts and bring them closer to Divine Intent.

  • The Truth of Transformation - In today's business world, it's all too common for change to drive leadership. In reality, leadership should drive change. Recognizing this widespread problem, Thomas has developed The Truth of Transformation, a popular presentation that empowers leadership teams to find clarity and dramatically transform their companies. An empowering call to action for organizations to reach their full potential, The Truth of Transformation is ideally suited for an audience of leaders who need a fresh approach to improving their company. Drawing on fundamentals of organizational culture, Thomas shares with his audiences the tools to transform their leadership so that they stay ahead of changes in the marketplace and, ultimately, become industry leaders.

  • The Secret to Sustainable Growth - Most companies get an idea, develop a product or service and then seek a customer base. But the real secret to sustainable growth is to start off with a defined customer base and then tailor the product or service to meet its changing needs. In his groundbreaking presentation, The Secret to Sustainable Growth, Thomas explores the importance of understanding the customer first, and then building everything else around a customer-first approach. The key takeaway of this powerful presentation is how to discover the core need of the market segment, and then match the competencies of your organization to the core need of the marketplace. Leaders and team members alike will learn how to define their core competencies, gifts and talents and use them to deliver to the core needs of the customers. Once this is accomplished, organizations can then achieve true sustainable growth.

  • Discovering Potential in Your Purpose - Mission statements are common, but true purpose in an organization is hard to come by. Rather than identifying a mission, businesses can soar to new levels of market leadership if they instead identify their unique purpose in the marketplace. To help organizations do this, Thomas has developed Discovering Potential in Your Purpose, a powerful presentation that empowers organizations to discover their unrealized potential and become industry leaders. With this presentation, Thomas shares with audiences how to identify their organizations' unique purpose and to discover how that purpose fits in with the needs of the marketplace. By the end of this presentation, audience members will be on their way to answering the following questions: Who are we? What are we meant to be doing? Who are we meant to do it for? What makes us the unique leader in the marketplace? In addition, your leaders will come away with a defining leadership principle.
