The Spirit of Leadership
If you want to change an organization, you have to lead with a Change of Heart - a Change of Spirit. The spirit in which we do anything determines the outcome, whether positive or negative. People are no longer a company's most important asset; the spirit in which they do things is! People with a positive spirit are inspired, motivated, excited about what they do, and create strong, lasting relationships. Once our hearts are engaged in what we are doing, and we see what we do as fulfilling work - not just as a job, then how we work is transformed. This purpose/spirit driven culture is the culture of the future. The new generations are demanding it, baby boomers are seeking it, and everyone wants it! This keynote radically affects the group dynamics - it breaks down barriers so that learning, networking and connection continue not only during the meeting, but for the long term. This session is full of techniques that will help leaders:
