Reality-Based Leadership: Ditch the Drama, Restore Sanity to the Workplace and Turn Excuses into Results

2012 Leadership Conference
Reality-Based Leadership: Ditch the Drama, Restore Sanity to the Workplace and Turn Excuses into Results

These are challenging times in our businesses today. In leadership, we must become willing to admit that the ways in which we have taught leaders to lead over the years is simply not working in the ways we thought it would. These times are calling for a new type of leader, one who can bring peace, sanity and results back to the workplace! In this session, Cy teaches the key principles of Reality-Based LeadershipTM and how to apply them to your workplace/volunteer role and in your coaching opportunities. You will learn to identify the reasons the current leadership model is failing and be provided with an innovative and revolutionary new look at your role in the organization as well as in your chapter or state council. You will be able to re-evaluate the work leaders have done to date in your companies so that you can transform your tools, programs, and philosophies into ones that actually work and that leaders will actually use.
