21st CENTURY LEADERSHIP: THE FUTURE HAS ARRIVED AND IT’S DEMANDING NEW LEADERSHIP
Today‘s work challenges are more complex but many leaders are ineffective in successfully dealing with them because they are trapped in traditional behaviors and attitudes about leadership. Leaders today must be driven by the future and its opportunities; yes, they can learn from the past but must not be committed to preserving it. Ron explains how the 21st Century leader must formulate, translate, and communicate effective strategy and turn it into action. Ron shares his insights on how to lead teams, build morale, create organizational synergy and get results. Audiences learn how Ron’s signature P.E.R.F.O.R.M.E.R. model can help lead individuals and transform organizations.
THE YOU FACTOR: HOW HIGH IS YOUR AIM?
One of the greatest dangers is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but rather it is too low and we reach it. Ron talks about how the brain is a goal seeking organism and the importance of setting personal and professional goals and objectives. The reason many people don’t get what they want is they haven’t decided what they want. Ron’s 4-Ps model helps individuals identify their Purpose, their Positioning, their Priorities, and their Productivity. This inspirational, educational, and entertaining presentation helps audiences answer the question “Are you on this planet to do something, or are you here just for something to do?”
