The Connector’s Way: A Purpose-Driven Approach to Growing Your Franchise Organization One Relationship at a Time
Strong connections make individuals healthier, happier, and more likely to perform at their peak to achieve greater success in business and life. Yet franchise professionals don’t always know where to begin, or they convince themselves that they are not very good at relationship building. And while technology promises to connect people across time and space, isolation and loneliness are more pervasive than ever.
Fortunately, the power of purposeful relationship building is under your control. Drawing on his extensive experience speaking to franchisees and franchisors around the country, combined with lessons from his book, The Connector’s Way, Patrick explores the transformative power of human connection in the real world and online. You will learn to grow your relationship-building mindset and skillset, helping you achieve your personal and professional goals.
The Trusted Way: Building a Franchise Organization of Character
Trust is an essential ingredient for successful franchisees and franchisors. High-trust franchise professionals build stronger relationships and enjoy greater opportunities for themselves and their organizations. But trust is not a given; it must be earned. And while you cannot make other people trust you, you can make it easier for them to measure your trustworthiness through your actions.
Leveraging the timeless lessons from his business parable, The Trusted Way, Patrick examines ethical behavior and what it means to do the right thing in a world that often challenges the concepts of truth and fairness. You will learn to look at situations through different lenses, and to consider not only your values but also the values of others to build meaningful connections and become a trusted advisor, coworker, and friend.
Build Better Relationships: How to Thrive in an AI-Driven World
Artificial intelligence (AI) is being integrated into daily life at a dizzying pace. Things are changing so fast that it’s hard to predict exactly where it will take us. One thing is certain, however: Authentic human connections remain the single biggest predictor of personal and professional success. So, while AI may power our digital devices and gadgets, it’s EI, or emotional intelligence, that powers our relationships.
In this presentation, Patrick will delve into the dynamic interplay between technology and human connection. Audience members will learn to navigate the evolving landscape and take control of digital tools to build credibility and trust. They will discover practical ways to leverage the values, traits and skills that make them human, and unlock the art of authentic relationship building in the digital age.

The Power of Connection: Cultivating a Relationship-Building Coaching Culture in Your Franchise Organization
Extraordinary business results are never achieved alone. Rather, they are the product of a team of people working together toward a common goal. Yet high-performing franchise organizations know that it is not enough to put a group of bright and talented people together and hope that their personalities and work styles align. Conditions need to be right for employees to develop genuine connections—the kind of connections that lead to greater productivity, increased engagement, and enhanced creativity.
This presentation will provide you with strategies to nurture work friendships and promote team bonding. You will learn how to create opportunities for people to develop authentic relationships and to foster a greater sense of connection among employees who may not be in the same physical space as their colleagues or clients. The result is a positive and supportive work culture that benefits everyone.
