Today’s challenging business environment is calling for a new type of leader. We need those willing and able to recreate mindsets (their own and that of others) and change an organization’s culture in order to lead in a bold new way.

The Reality Revolution begins with a few good leaders who are able to quickly see and radically accept the reality of the situation, conserve precious team energy, and use that energy instead to impact reality. A great Reality-Based Leader anticipates the upcoming changes and capitalizes on the opportunity inherent in the situation without drama or defense.

The principles of Reality-Based Leadership include:

  • Refusing to argue with reality
  • Valuing action over opinion
  • Leading first, managing second
  • Bulletproofing employees so that they can succeed, regardless of the circumstances
  • Working to be happy rather than to be right
9:30AM to 10:30AM
Leadership Hacking Panel While everyone can learn skills to become a manager, not everyone is a leader. And not everyone can lead during times of change. Talk to some of the industry’s most notable leaders and hear about their trials, triumphs and failures and walk away with tips and strategies that helped them succeed. 10:45AM to 11:45PM
Lunch Take a break with fellow members after a morning of information download. 11:45AM to 1:00PM
