Craig Zablocki

The Art of "Un-Learning" Expert

It’s Not About Learning – It’s About Un-Learning

There’s a reason Craig is one of the most sought-after speakers for Franchisees. Not only is he one of the most audience-engaging speakers you will ever experience, but he also provides transformational tools that will help improve the success of franchisees immediately and for years to come. His unconventional style and straightforward manner with audiences makes him a hit for franchise conventions, regional road-shows and sales rallys .

His premise is simple – we have barriers to our innate potential for commitment, creativity, leadership, sales, and communication. He helps us overcome the obstacles keeping us from making more of an impact on customers and employees. Craig unravels us from our habitual ways of being and conditioning that keep us stuck.

Craig distinguishes information from transformation. Not a “rah-rah” session but real transformation. As a business speaker Craig is brought back time and again to many of the Franchise and Fortune 100 companies, helping them achieve success through his unique perspectives and experiences.

Craig’s ability to see “where” franchisees are stuck allows him to tailor a specific program that delivers the powerful behavioral change you’re looking for. It’s not about learning – it’s about UN-learning.

Program Information

Franchises that are thriving are able to develop a culture of ownership, engagement, and fun. A recent Gallup Poll stated that 70% of employees in the US are disengaged at work.  Of those, 20% are “roaming the halls spreading discontent.”  Most of us are holding back from total engagement, but once we see the benefits of being “All in” and learn ways to cultivate that in our employees, the magic starts to happen and success is the result.

What does it mean for franchisees to Think Big? What does it mean for them to Act Big? What holds them back from a bigger perspective and bold action? In this keynote, Craig shows how to celebrate our victories, challenge our complacency, and live life in a BIG way. We’ve all heard the saying that mountains are climbed one step at a time – and the way to a BIG victory is one step at a time.  Be ready to learn (actually Un-Learn), laugh, and up your game both personally and professionally.

It is a proven fact that a culture of fun increases productivity, motivation, and employee engagement. This keynote is guaranteed to leave participants laughing while teaching them how to create a culture of fun and creativity that strengthens morale and increases productivity. People do business with franchises that are fun and have great customer service, where employees really care about the customer experience. Get ready to laugh while learning about The Intelligence of Fun.

As a franchise, great leadership is paramount. There are most likely franchisees that are awesome leaders and some that are not.  What are the true distinctions between the two?  Experience the difference between a purposeful leader and a personality leader, and see how true leaders serve others versus pleasing them.  If your franchisees could be more powerful leaders, this program will deliver.

We hear it all the time – change is inevitable.  As franchisors and franchisees the struggle is that we often spend so much time resisting change.  Through it all we complain and moan and talk about the “good old days” as if that really helps.  What if your franchisees could actually be excited about change from “the get-go” with an attitude of “bring it on!”  This program will help franchises become successful by embracing change with passion and 100% commitment.
