Key Themes

Leadership Is Your Decision, Not Your Title

You have likely met someone who held a formal leadership position but failed to lead others. That person was unable to understand that being a leader is not about a title, job description, or spot in the parking lot. It’s about daily choices, the desire to influence and grow others, and the drive to deliver positive, measurable results. None of these actions require a title, but they do require you to choose to lead.

The Power of Your Story

Stories allow us to share our history, teach lessons, and influence others. You can learn to leverage this power as you write your personal leadership story. A story that will endure beyond your time in the organization. It will serve as a long-term reminder of what it felt like to work for you, the results you achieved, and how you grew others in the process. Not only is your leadership story memorable and influential, but it is a function of your daily intentions, behaviors, and results. You are the author of your leadership story.

Think Like a Leader

If you aren’t thrilled with your results, don’t merely look at your actions. Dig deeper and consider your mindset. In other words, think about how you think. Being a great leader requires you to think differently. Explore ten key leadership mindsets, learn why each mindset matters, assess how you are currently performing, and create a plan to get better.

Enjoy the Journey

In the throes of the day-to-day, it is easy to get lost in your work. That’s why it’s critical to occasionally hit ‘pause’ and take the time to enjoy the leadership journey. Doing so will refuel your energy and put the ups and downs into perspective. It will also allow you to model for your people what truly matters most.

Ideal Audience: This message applies across all industries and to everyone who is responsible for leading themselves and others. This includes aspiring leaders, high potentials, and existing leaders.

Format: 45-to-60-minute keynote. Follow-up options include a two-day workshop titled The Two-Day Leadership Challenge: Become the Leader You Were Meant to Be and an online course titled The 5-Week Leadership Challenge.
