GLENN ADAMS (VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH JASON FORREST)
RUNNING TOWARD THE ROAR: GLENN ADAMS – HOW THE BOY SCOUTS HAVE INFLUENCED HIS LIFE
Do your team members have what it takes to push forward even in the face of failure? In a series of video interviews conducted for FWinc., Jason speaks with oil industry maverick Glenn Adams about how persistence has paid off for this accomplished entrepreneur. Glenn, who is CEO of Texas Shale Resources and President of the National Eagle Scout Association, shares his thoughts on how Scouting imparted skills and instilled values in him that have played an instrumental role in his professional life. Read an excerpt below:
“When I graduated from college, I had some very defined goals that I wanted to achieve. And I was able to achieve those goals. I wanted to be an officer of a public company by the age of 30, I wanted to run a public company, and then I wanted to go independent. And I did all three of those. And I attribute it to the fact that in Scouting, I learned how to set goals and then achieve those goals… and the path to those goals wasn’t necessarily the path that I thought it was going to be, but I did achieve the goals and learned a lot from it.”
To learn more about the philosophies that helped Glenn attain his professional success, as well as his insights on how running toward a challenge can actually help you build value and make money.

UNLEASH YOUR HUMAN PERFORMANCE AND ACCELERATE YOUR BUSINESS PROFITABILITY WITH OUR REVOLUTIONARY TRAINING EVENT FOR SALES PROFESSIONALS, MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES.
JASON FORREST (Three time Stevie Award winner – 2016 Gold Stevie Award for Sales Coaching program of the year, 2014 Silver Stevie Award for sales training program of the year, and 2013 Gold Stevie Award for sales training or education leader of the year) is an expert at creating high-performance sales organizations through sales training programs, management training programs, and cultural awareness training. He addresses beliefs (not just behaviors) to increase sales, develop leaders, implement cultural accountability, and transform companies into sales organizations. A sales professional at heart, Forrest believes in both the art and science of the sales process. Forrest’s competitive distinction is his behavior-modification approach (which focuses on people, process, and presentation) and his focus on beliefs, not just behaviors.
FORREST PERFORMANCE GROUP is a global leader and designer of corporate training programs, leadership training programs, and sales training programs. Forrest PG’s unique distinction and edge is its belief that true, permanent change begins from the top, transforms from the inside-out, and requires long-term coaching and accountability, rather than short-term training. Too many organizations are short-sighted regarding training and only provide one-day motivational events to entertain sales pros, giving them only short-term boosts in energy and temporary performance lifts. One-day events can be valuable for rejuvenating or jump-starting performance, but a complete training program with coaching along the way makes all of the difference. Increased sales, measurable ROI, accountability, tangible and relevant sales tools are just a few of the results of an FPG training program.
