Re-Discover Your Leadership Genius - Six Steps to Coach Average Performers into Extraordinary Leaders!
Simply put, Leadership is a behavioral choice, not a title or position. There are demands on human capital more than ever before. Do more with less. Accelerate results. Achieve the extraordinary. Become collaborative. Change, and then change some more. What would it do for your organization if the overall performance of average performers increased by double digits? What would it mean to the organization to increase the inflow of high potentials and high performers into your talent supply at an accelerated rate? What would the impact be if you were able to convert average performers into extraordinary leaders? Traditionally leaders in organizations were determined by position, title and grade. Robert shares in this presentation strategies to deploy a leadership ecosystem which allows every person regardless of position, pay or title to maximize their innate leadership gifts and talents to meet the ever increasing business demands head on; by playing a leadership role based on six leadership networks people operate.

There may be no “i” in team but you can sure find a big “I” in leadership. That is because leadership starts with each of us! Robert shares insights and strategies to create an environment of “Leadership Genius” throughout the fabric of the organization where everyone can become engaged and contribute to achieving extraordinary results regardless of position, pay, title or rank.

Potential is the most underdeveloped resource in many organizations; however once you discover it the well of potential never goes dry because with potential maximized anything is possible!
