Damon’s moment of clarity altered the trajectory of his life and revealed his ultimate mission. Shared with passion and intensity, Damon’s testimony is one that listeners have praised as gripping, powerful, and heartfelt. “Recognize your purpose, find your superpower, and change the world for good.”
War at Home
A continuing keynote that picks up where HOPE AND PURPOSE finishes, Dr. Friedman draws from the liberties we are privileged to have in this country and identiﬁes the many factors that keep people from experiencing true personal freedom. He recounts various trials he faced after returning from combat, from dealing with PTSD and family relationships to the continual struggle in finding your identity and freedom. Damon encourages his audience by empowering them to overcome the challenges in their own lives. A powerful message for an audience that wants to be moved into action.

Reflecting from his military service, doctoral studies, and non-profit experience, Damon instructs executives with topics such as: “Finding Your Purpose,” “How Good Leaders Attract Committed Followers,” and “The Shared Convictions that Unite a Movement.” From his nationally recognized book, Igniting Movements, Damon empowers leaders to be world changers with an instructional focus on leadership, ideological factors, organizational construct, and strategic output.

Originally designed for the military community, it is now available to executives and professional athletes.
