A philosophy developed by Zig Ziglar more than 50 years ago. A World War II veteran who grew up poor in Yazoo City, Mississippi, Zig worked in a succession of sales companies early in life. As his sales skills grew so did his interest in motivational speaking. During speeches, his messages of hope, encouragement and faith showcased his way of life—forming the Ziglar Way. How the Ziglar Way makes a difference Taking action, common sense, fairness, commitment and integrity form the basis for this way of life. And when you live by this philosophy you’ll live a balanced life while achieving significance at both work and home. All Ziglar programs focus on these key items - old and new. That’s why Ziglar programs from the past continually change lives while newly developed personal and corporate training programs at Ziglar remain consistent with this basic philosophy.
