Can you imagine the thrill of getting inducted into a hall of fame and joining a list of immortals? What would you say at your induction speech? The answer to that second question has led to talks that range from good to great to awful.
The Path of Greatness
It takes consistent greatness in your sport to make it to the hall of fame. Once you get there, it takes adherence to a proven set of principles to ensure your speech deserves same stellar reputation your career had.

In this edition of The Rules of Engagement, I’ll share with you three principles. They lie behind a great speech on Induction Day.
I’ll also show you how you can use those same principles to elevate your speeches, presentations, and meetings.
