Mike Staver is going on a bit of a road trip. Throughout the course of 41 days, Staver is traveling more than 12,000 miles around the perimeter of the continental United States. Along the way, heâ€™s making eight pit stopsâ€”speaking engagements where he will teach real estate companies about leadership, high-performance culture, and how to manage change. Did I mention heâ€™s traveling by Harley?
During his first-ever â€śFull Throttle Leadership Tour,â€ť Staver is combining two of his passions into one ambitious work trip. Departing from Fernandina Beach, Fla., Staver plans on riding counter-clockwise around the country, up the eastern seaboard, through Maine, and across the northern part of the U.S. Heâ€™ll circle down and finish back where he started in Florida. Some of his scheduled stops include the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, New Orleans and more. Heâ€™ll ride 350 miles a day on average, with his longest day maxing out at 565 miles. At 50 miles per hour, heâ€™ll be spending approximately 10 hours a day on his bike.
â€śI wanted to do something of significant impact and something unique. Plus, I get to work with a lot of cool real estate leaders, and I wanted to do something different,â€ť says Staver, CEO of The Staver Group and Chief Learning Officer for Institute, Leading Real Estate Companies of the Worldâ€™s® robust online educational platform for sales associates and leaders. â€śI thought I ought to stop and work with people and share with them what Iâ€™ve learned riding a Harley around the U.S. and how it relates to what folks do in their jobs as leaders around the country.â€ť
Parallels found between the challenges leaders face every day and Staverâ€™s experiences on the road will serve as foundation topics for each stop on the tour. In addition, he plans to cover the following leadership topics during his coaching sessions:
