TEDx Talk


Dreaming is serious business for Marcia Wieder. "The single most important dream," Marcia says, "has everything to do with the business you're in."

"Dreaming is a whole-brained process: visionary and creative, practical and strategic. We need both." "The dream movement is not just about any old step. There's a very specific and critical step we need to take. Most of us stand with one foot firmly planted in realities and the other foot firmly planted in our doubt."

Dreaming is Serious Business
Great business books and experts offer new thoughts, tactics, metrics and tools for better communication, leadership, employee engagement and strategic planning. But they’ve missed an essential component for helping businesses earn bigger profits and spark expansion, while having a positive impact on the world: fostering a truly engaged team at the deepest level. Beyond traditional skill building there is something else that substantially contributes to the bottom line...how to dream big while aligning employees dreams with the organization′s mission.

Dreaming is serious business and the driving force for transformation, innovation and new opportunities. Without vision companies fail. The greatest companies with the most inspiring stories and highest profitability share one critical and often over looked quality: they dream big! Their ability to articulate and implement that vision inspires everyone. Individuals join a company because they are inspired by a vision, product, service or leader. Employees stay when they clearly see how their unique gifts, personal dreams and talents can contribute to the team’s vision in a way that has them feeling appreciated and acknowledged.

  • Hear why companies with vision are more innovative, profitable and retain great people.
  • Use a method to engage, inspire and achieve greater productivity from every member of your team.
  • See how dreaming can substantially improve your business, culture and the world.
  • Learn a proven “doubt removal” system for overcoming doubt and limiting beliefs.

Visionary Leadership: Inspire Your Team
There is a new paradigm for powerful leaders which involves synchronizing compassion, effectiveness, thoughtfulness and success. Results-oriented achievers themselves, visionary leaders are rapidly making inroads into new markets, as well as innovating and adapting to unparalleled economic changes. Leaders understand how to dream big. Yet the most successful visionaries are those who have learned how to share a vision that inspires others to join them, and who continue to refine their abilities to inspire their team to take actions that are critical for team success.

Does your team or group need a call to action, or methods to clarify and define your mission? Clarity is necessary to properly implement each organization′s mission. Just as important is the courage to exceed self-limiting expectations. This program teaches participants how to lead with vision, and to become comfortable with uncertainty, even during unique, fast-changing times. Clarify your group′s mission, vision, calling and dreams while enhancing your role as a creative force, and your company′s role as a coveted employer.

Learn how to take the proven action steps that are vital components of both your personal and team successes. Choose Marcia Wieder to teach your leaders, and those that aspire to lead, how to enhance their abilities to lead with inspiration and purpose.

Create Your Dream Life: On Your Way in Just One Day

Igniting Productivity and Employee Engagement
Marcia Wieder teaches organizations how to use passion as a tool to immediately increase bottom line results. Marcia reveals her proven methods and instructs teams to discover and connect their passion. Go beyond goal setting, and experience Marcia while she reignites passion and inspires success, even during difficult or challenging times.

When the workplace is a safe place for employees to share their greatest dreams and feel the support of their organization, productivity is exponentially increased. Employees find that they have more energy, vitality and an enthusiasm that permeates all facets of their lives and careers.

Essentially, when we understand that our dreams and goals are important, we can bring our greatest talents to our workplace, and inspire others with our renewed, often contagious, passion. A workplace that allows its teams, at all levels, to share their personal and professional dreams, is an empowering environment, where dreams are integrated and aligned. Marcia Wieder′s visionary systems and processes maximize employee engagement, effectively skyrocketing both retention and productivity.

Tapping Into Innovation & Creativity
Big dreamers that seek to turn their dreams into realities must model intention, integrity and the leadership traits essential for thinking outside the proverbial box.

The most successful organizations depend upon their key leaders who must also inspire others to lead. Learning how to Dream Big and to activate that vision are the driving forces for the transformation which will set you and your team apart.

    Making Your Dreams Come True: Find Your Passion with America′s Dream Coach

    Imagine living the live you’ve always dreamed about—the career, the relationship, and even simply that vacation you keep putting off. In Making Your Dreams Come True, Marcia Wieder teaches you a concrete formula to overcome whatever is standing between you and your dream—mostly your own self-limiting beliefs—and to rediscover the passion that may have been hidden for years.

    As a dream coach and entrepreneur, Marcia Wieder knows what she’s talking about. In 1993, she left her successful East Coast media business and moved to San Francisco, the city of her dreams. Six years later, with a thriving international business as a motivational speaker, she’s a shining example of what is possible when you follow that inner passion.

    With Marcia as your personal coach, you too will learn step-by-step how to define and manifest your dreams. But according to Marcia, you must first examine your attitudes and beliefs to see whether or not they empower or impede you. Learning how to get your own beliefs on your side is just one of the specific strategies of her plan. Throughout the book, Marcia also provides a wealth of helpful advice—from how to look at your life from a genuinely fresh perspective to designing an environment both physically and emotionally that will support your dream. You will also discover the “Passion Pyramid,” a useful tool that reveals how passion helps you accomplish your dreams more quickly.

    Filled with stories of real people, practical exercises, and a personal workbook for you, Making Your Dreams Come True delivers on its promise: When you’ve finished, you will know how to make your dreams come true—any time you choose.
