A leader unflinchingly places the needs of others above his or her own. This drive to serve our clients stems from recognizing that all human beings are interdependent. Having walked in the shoes of everyone from Pakistani fish mongers to Mongolian nomads, Bash sees firsthand how every role is just as valuable as the next and no one is more important than another—be it the secretary, the janitor or the CEO.

Being a global leader doesn’t mean changing our jobs, joining the Peace Corps, or even traveling abroad! Rather, it means recognizing the service we already provide to our clients and the difference we already make in people’s lives. Bash helps us realize our true potential by eliminating self-doubt through exercises that reinforce trust in ourselves. Through stories of leaders who have overcome unthinkable obstacles around the globe, Bash reaffirms that we can each increase our productivity by shifting our focus from self to other.

The “stoop” is a universal metaphor for building connections with people across intercultural, intergenerational and international boundaries. It is a mentality defined by listening, non-judgment and the courage to step outside our comfort zones. Bash’s childhood Brooklyn stoop was a set of stairs with friends that shared a total of thirteen nationalities. Sometimes a stoop is a teashop in Saudi Arabia, a pile of rocks in Haiti, or the community workplace in a Minnesota accounting firm. In this flagship talk, Bash defines the practical steps by which we can create stoops in both our communities and in the workplace.

Join Bash on a trek across continents, wrestling with nomads in the hills of Mongolia, jumping with Maasai warriors on the plains of Africa, and understanding the subtle cultural nuances that define human relationship. The Rules of the Stoop are the actual method by which to diffuse tensions and strengthen the most challenging relationships in our personal and professional lives. Through thought provoking exercises, unique audience participation and uplifting videos we will be empowered to create more authentic relationships here and now.

Go behind the scenes in those organizations renowned for inventive and imaginative service and you will find leaders with exceptional practices and special competencies. These courageous leaders understand the culture and leader-follower relationships that are most suited for resourcefulness in delivering value-unique experiences that awe, not just wow. Leadership is an echo that best resonates in a setting of responsible freedom, compelling cause, supportive connections, infectious curiosity and affirming excellence. Dr. Bell’s riveting keynote uses profiles of successful innovation leaders who foster frontline ingenuity and nurture opportunities for breakthroughs and discoveries. Based on his best-selling book, Take Their Breath Away, this powerful presentation leaves audiences with fresh insights and clear instructions on ways to stimulate, nurture and cultivate innovative service.

The work of the leader has become increasingly challenging with the world changing at an unprecedented rate, economic crises, political strife, and market pressures – to name just a few of the moving components affecting the work environment. What are the characteristics that allow certain leaders to flourish in uncertain and constantly changing times? Ben-Shahar looks through the lens of his SHARP model, which focuses on Strengths, Health, Absorption, Relationships, and Purpose to guide the actions of an effective leader. This presentation provides practical tools that allow leaders to bring out the best in themselves, their colleagues, and manage change -- even in the most uncertain times.

For the first time ever, the average American is more concerned about falling behind than about getting ahead. Working-class Americans have led a populist surge that has disrupted the political status quo and will have real implications for business. From his early start as a beer distributor in Brooklyn to advising presidents and corporate giants, Joel Benenson has spent his career developing big-picture strategies for success while remaining in touch with his blue-collar roots, and understands that treating employees as commodities simply doesn’t work. In this thought-provoking, impassioned and candid presentation, Benenson examines why it’s time for a new strategy, what these trends mean for the future, and lays out the actions you need to take now.

We live in a society in which individual achievement is the predominant measure of success. As children in school, we are graded individually. At work, our performance is evaluated individually. But in order for organizations to successfully compete, employees must work seamlessly as a team. So, how do employees of an “I” culture let go of an inherent self-interest that permeates the business culture? Perhaps lessons can be drawn from professional sports, where effective teamwork is the only way to win. After coaching collegiate and professional football teams for more than 30 years, Brian Billick is a master at building winning teams. He shares:

  • How to merge a group of “individual contractors” into a functioning team;
  • His method for ensuring that a team strives toward a common goal;
  • Ways to emphasize the primacy of that goal;
  • How to create a “we” environment with a vision that ultimately leads to success.

What is the essence of a team? According to management gurus Ken Blanchard and Sheldon Bowles, “It’s the genuine understanding that none of us is as smart as all of us. Putting your needs, your pride, and your agenda on hold and letting the team’s needs, pride, and agenda become your priority is an essential step in developing teamwork,” they say.

Within the traditional pyramid or business hierarchy, the boss is always responsible and the staff is supposed to be responsive to the boss. When you turn the pyramid upside down, those roles get reversed. People become responsible and the job of management is to be responsive to their people. That creates a very different environment for implementation. If you work for your people, then what is the purpose of being a manager? To help them accomplish their goal. Your job as a manager is to help your staff win.
