YOUR CONVICTIONS MATTER

CONVICTION COMES FROM AN UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO WHAT YOU BELIEVE.  THE PROBLEMS OF OUR WORLD DO NOT COME FROM A FOREIGN ENEMY OR A LESSER CLASS OF PEOPLE, BUT FROM THE OUTWORKING OF OUR OWN SELF-CENTERED HEARTS.  SOMETIMES OUR CONVICTIONS ARE MISGUIDED AND CAN DO GREAT DAMAGE TO OUR LIVES AND OTHERS.  THAT IS WHY I WORK TO INSPIRE AND CHALLENGE PEOPLE TO BECOME CLEAR ON  WHAT THEY BELIEVE AND WHY THEY BELIEVE IT.  I WORK WITH SCHOOLS AND BUSINESSES TO ENSURE THEIR CONVICTIONS ARE COHERENT, CONSISTENT AND ADVANCE HUMAN FLOURISHING.  I DO THIS AS A KEYNOTE SPEAKER AND TEACHER.

I really believe our management will think differently about leadership after this talk.

Where Marine Snipers Are Born

MEET GARY

I am Gary Xavier, founder of The Blade Group LLC.  I am a speaker and teacher on the subject of resilience.  I work with major healthcare companies like Blue Shield of California, top mortgage banks like Bay Equity and incredible community service organizations like the YMCA.  I also work with schools to build more resilient communities through a non-profit organization I speak with called Think Kindness.  Every year, we issue a 15-day kindness challenge to see which school or community can become the kindest in the country.  Last year over 70,000 students participated.  

My programs like Conviction or The Rising Tribe are designed to challenge your workers, leaders and students to develop great decision making and poise when times are tough or prosperous. 

I am a former Marine sniper, 3 degree black belt, Ironman® athlete, PGA Golf Professional and World's Toughest Mudder® competitor.  I am not interested in how a company or a school can bend reality to make everyone happy.  I am driven to help the individual become intimate with their own convictions, so they can endure and enhance any setting.

MY MISSION: UNITE HUMAN GROUPS

Courage is not simply a virtue; it is the key virtue that occurs when all others are put to the testing point!  There are two tests each group will face:  the test of success and the test of suffering.  These are unavoidable.  The question is how we emerge from them.  Will we be blind in our achievement or in our pain?  Helping families, businesses and schools understand how to grow from these tests is the reason I have been put on the earth.  It is my mission!

NOT ALL TEAMS ARE EQUAL

FAMILIES

BUSINESSES

SCHOOLS

I focus on three human groups: families, businesses & schools.  There are uniting principles that bind these groups, but there are realities that make them very different.  This is why we focus on building resilience and cohesion for each of these categories: they each face inevitable change, success and heartache.  Businesses run on a "Perform and Your Accepted" model, families run on a "Your Accepted and You Perform" model and schools run on subtle hybrid of these.  The ONE thing that binds them is the relational respect that must occur in each group.
