Two overall key purposes of this presentation:
- Transform your thinking to become a more powerful leader and create a more powerful organization.
– For decades we all have been admonished to “think outside the box,” but we’ve never been told how to do that. Simply telling us to think differently does not make it happen.
– In this presentation you will learn how to develop new ways of thinking and how to lead an organization that enables employees to access new ways of thinking.
2. Access the power of the spirit
– Clear away the limitations created by your ego and there is an essential “higher self” that has powerful wisdom and potential to create meaningful outcomes. This presentation will honor that inner greatness and discuss how we cultivate that essence in yourself as a leader, and in those who follow you.
