At some point along his entrepreneurial journey building and selling companies, Jeff Hilimire recognized that profit alone wasn’t motivation enough to change the world for the better. That led him to uncover four pillars—Purpose, Vision, Tenets, & Values, or PVTV™—that provided a guiding light for growing his organization. But what he didn’t realize was that his PVTV model was still missing something… That was when Jeff, a lifelong competitive tennis player, learned about The Great Game of Business.
He immediately recognized that business, like tennis, is a team sport. And, by combining the Great Game operating principles with his PVTV™ model, Jeff learned how he could inspire and equip teams in companies of all sizes to articulate a higher purpose and then turn it into transformational action.
Not only will Jeff speak about how he used the combination of the Great Game with PVTV to turbocharge his own company, Dragon Army, but he’ll also share how he’s turned the lessons he’s learned into an aspirational tale called The Great Team Turnaround. Following in the steps of Jeff’s prior two bestsellers, he wrote The Great Team Turnaround to illustrate how any organization or team that runs both PVTV and GGOB is nothing short of unstoppable.
