Creating High Performance
Leaders, Teams and Environments
Since 1988, our total focus at SpectraComm has been to assist leaders, managers and executives in creating high-performance environments so they can spend less time managing and more time growing and building their business and where people of every generation are fully engaged and operating at their highest capacity.
As an example, our proven three-stage Choice Leadership Program uncovers core performance issues, identifies vital behaviors and intrinsic motivators that are the foundational causes of employee disengagement and low performance. SpectraComm has helped organizations, worldwide, create an environment (culture) that leads to greater productivity, faster response to challenges, and more adaptable and effective teams without adding more stress or responsibilities on most already over-burdened managers and leaders.
The SpectraComm Team
Marc W. Schwartz
Marc W. Schwartz – Founder and Managing Partner at SpectraComm
Marc is an international speaker, author, and consultant on workforce performance who has traveled the world presenting to over 65,000 people in 39 countries on exactly how to use INFLUENCE to break through the barriers that stand in the way of managers getting optimal performance from their employees. Schwartz says, “Influence, not power, is the key to creating a really effective, multi-generational approach to the next evolution of business leadership.”
For more than three decades, Schwartz has developed a well-tested blueprint for corporate leaders, managers and sales professionals that provides the baseline for any team to create a high-performance environment where people of every generation are naturally motivated, engaged and operating at their highest capacity. Marc has excelled at helping clients from large multi-nationals to smaller entrepreneurs and startups create a Structured Freedom™ environment where managers can focus on what they do best rather than focusing on how to continually motivate people and do so in a way that still meets the needs of the organization, manager and the employee.
As a speaker, groups regularly report that Marc is high energy and has mastered the art of engaging his audiences through a process known as Edu-Train-Ment©. This entails the connection of customized customer business issues to key organizational and personal development strategies and delivering those points through the use of humor and inventive exercises which aids in the walk-away retention of valuable information for the participants.
Marc is also a bestselling author on the topic of leadership. His current books include Power Shift, a business book on how to lead the new generation workforce, The Totally Engaged Audience, a book on creating fearless presentations and Local Business Mavericks, Insights and Innovation From Professionals and Community Leaders.
