Speaker Topics


The mastery of leadership lies within unlearning as quickly as we learn, thinking collectively and acting in the moment backed with the discipline of preparation and planning. How do we help our leaders sustain their own energy as well as momentum for change?


What does leadership look like today, when we’re facing complexity and challenges in every direction? Activate a distributed leadership model with the methods to help people operate out of their comfort zone, model inclusive culture, and sharpen their critical curiosity for the unknown.


Leadership is a mindset. Empower your people to harness purpose as a personal and collective motivator. Empower your teams to expand their sphere of influence, hone their risk appetite, and reframe their role in greater business success. As Gandhi put it, let’s teach your people to do what they can, with what they have, from where they are. Starting today.
