Recession Requirements for Leaders: Trust, Meaning, and Foresight
Leaders ordinarily fail when they lose trust, suffer a loss of meaning, or lose the way forward. In the current recession, all three dimensions are under attack. This keynote addresses why these three are important and how to help leaders get back on track.

The Leader’s Voice
Everyone knows communication is important. Everyone believes they communicate okay – but everyone believes they could improve as well. Most leaders stop learning about communication once they have successfully taken a platform skills course or a coaching class. This keynote will highlight the most up-to-date behavioral and neurological insights into why the best communicators constantly use facts, emotions, and symbolism to get their messages across. The findings are based upon original research by the author and his late co-author, Boyd Clarke.

Aspiring to the C-Suite:
Why Personal Credibility, An Inspiring Vision, and The Ability to Engage Isn’t Enough From frontline leadership responsibilities up to mid-level, personal credibility, reinforcing the organizational mission, and motivating the troops is enough competence to lead. Once an individual aspires to leadership roles beyond this level, however, a fundamental shift occurs – constituents now include senior managers, boards of directions, and shareholders. These added constituencies also expect senior leaders to stand for the entire organization, not just themselves. They require adaptive strategic abilities, not just the ability to align an organization. And they expect senior leaders to create a successful pool of internal candidates for their job – in essence provide for a perpetual stream of senior leaders. This keynote highlights why this is true and how to achieve the ends.

Transactional, Transformational, and Transcultural Leadership
Leadership has been actively studied for over 100 years. Current views of leadership rest upon research insights garnered over this century. This keynote highlights the transitions in leadership views, the keys of leadership that have withstood the test of time, and what leadership development programs should be teaching in this transcultural age.
