Robert Teschner, Founder & CEO, VMax GroupGNEX 2020 Conference, which will be held in Las Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino from February 18-21, 2020 has announced that Lt Col (ret) Robert “Cujo” Teschner, a former Air Force Fighter Weapons School Instructor is to participate as an X-TALK speaker for the upcoming 10th Anniversary event.

X-TALKS are unique to the GNEX Conference format which attracts senior-level executives from the vacation ownership, hospitality and leisure industries. These sessions feature a solo speaker for a limited time of just 10 minutes. Each speaker is either an Xpert or have significant Xperience or has exuded Xcellence related to their session topic.

This X-TALK, which is titled “Debrief to Win”, is an incredibly powerful presentation by a former Air Force Fighter Weapons School Instructor about practicing accountability in a way where team members learn through their mistakes to be their best; where team members’ heroics are regularly celebrated, and where even in the face of failure team members walk away motivated and inspired to try again. It’s about harnessing the power of what high-performing teams the world over use to achieve excellence.

“Accountability is the core of all good teamwork, but the problem is that the word accountability—a word that leaders often champion and publicly celebrate—is that it usually strikes fear in the hearts of team members. It does so because they understand accountability to mean something that happens after a failure, and that someone will be shamed or blamed as a result. And shame or blame tends to destroy teams, not build them up to be their collective best.” Says Lt Col (ret) Robert “Cujo” Teschner, Founder & CEO VMax Group.

Lt Col (ret) Rob “Cujo” Teschner served as Commander of the 7th Fighter Squadron (FS), responsible for transitioning a start-up F-22 “Raptor” squadron to operationally ready. He was hand-selected to serve as an F-15C “Eagle” Instructor Pilot at the USAF Weapons School, the Air Force “TOP GUN” school. He flew more than 130 combat hours over Iraq in the F-15C in support of Operations NORTHERN and SOUTHERN WATCH. He also served as a senior staff officer at Headquarters U.S. European Command, where he was a key architect of a major and still ongoing multi-billion-dollar overseas security initiative requested by the President of the United States. Cujo is a cancer survivor, multiple award-winning fighter pilot, and author of the #1 Amazon bestselling book, Debrief to Win: How America’s Top Guns Practice Accountable Leadership…and How You Can, Too!

The high quality, dynamic and information packed bite-sized X-TALK sessions deliver valuable opinions, data and insights for attendees on many varied topics, while offering a convenient drop-in / drop-out schedule that supports the conference’s focus on networking.
