Ruben’s Motivational Leadership Presentations

Commit to Excellence

Leadership Gold – Becoming a Great Leader

When Ruben got started in the luge he thought he could do it all himself. Along the way Ruben realized that he would need help. He needed coaches, sled mechanics, doctors, chiropractors, financial assistance, etc.

He needed to learn some leadership skills and create a team of people. Ruben was able to create a Dream Team and by working through his team he was able to realize his dream.

Ruben believes top leaders are trustworthy and passionate about their mission, and they have a high level of Emotional Intelligence which allows them to truly connect with their people. Those attributes make people want to follow them and fight for the leader’s goals.

“This was a fantastic lesson on leadership. Ruben is a real example for us to follow as Business leaders.”

– Caroline Basyn – CIO – Bacardi

Ruben on Leadership

Lots of people want to be the leader. Few people are willing to do what it takes to be the leader. Just like lots of people want to compete in the Winter Games but few people are willing to do what it takes to compete there.

The leader is focused 100% on their team and their goal.

They are constantly engaged. Constantly taking action, helping and teaching the people in their team. Willing to take risks.

Willing to outwork the competition. Willing to fail. Willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. They don’t wait till everything is perfect.

They do what they can with what they have right now.

Olympic Motivational Speaker Ruben Gonzalez

Motivating Your People to the Top

Ruben has an incredible story.

He was always the last kid picked to play sports in PE. When he was 21 years old he decided he wanted to compete in the next Winter Games.

He lived in Houston at the time. Didn’t even know what snow looked like.

He went to Lake Placid, took up the sport of luge and four years and a few broken bones later he was competing in the Calgary Winter Games.

He went on to become the first person to ever compete in four Winter Games each in a different decade.

As he jokingly says, “It doesn’t mean he’s good, it just means he’s old!” He competed in the Vancouver at the age of 47. Everybody thought he was a coach! But seriously, his story takes people’s excuses away because he’s an ordinary guy who did some extraordinary things.

Your people will learn:

  • How to become a high performer.
  • How to tap into their greatest source of personal power.
  • How to crate a vision that will dictate their efforts and results.
  • How to become more productive by focusing on solutions and speed.
  • How taking responsibility for their results helps them win more.
  • How to simplify their lives by focusing on what’s important now.
  • How to commit to their goals.
  • How to achieve long-term success and balance.
  • How to turn success into significance.
