Dial Up Your Influence: Specific Strategies that Stick

John Maxwell who has authored over 100 books on leadership, once said: “Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.” Whether or not your job involves leading people, you possess an ability to influence others. But do you consider yourself an influencer? Not the sort of influencer you hear about — you know, a celebrity who uses social media to endorse or promote a product and leverages their fan base to increase sales. Rather, are you an influencer who inspires or guides the actions of others — even when there is no direct chain of command? Meaning, you aren’t the boss (or the mom)! Here’s the deal, you don’t have to be someone’s boss to be an influencer and this session will show you how.

Winning Teams: Leadership Lessons from a High-School Cross Country Coach

This presentation includes lessons learned in a sport often overlooked and under-appreciated – it’s the sport of Cross Country. While anyone who has ever participated can probably tell you some great stories from running those 3.1 miles, many people don’t necessarily think of it as a team sport, and yet it is. Cross Country is a sport with no bench, no timeouts, no do-overs and everyone on the team makes a difference. It’s a sport that connects in many ways to both life and leadership. Whether you are leading a team or just trying to do your part as a member of that team, this presentation provides lessons you can apply to help you all become winners.  Even if you have never laced up a pair of spikes, this presentation will move you! Who knows? By the end, you may even be motivated to sign up for your first 5k.
