Today’s leaders face a pressure to innovate—or else perish—unlike any other time in history.  Advances in social, mobile and cloud technology, coupled with fierce global competition has made the business landscape nearly unrecognizable from what it was a mere 10 years ago.

Erik Wahl’s entertaining and invigorating Art of Leadership presentation paints a compelling new portrait for what the successful leaders of tomorrow will look like. He inspires audiences to shed old ways of thinking and “business as usual” processes that are outdated, inefficient and detrimental to productivity. Audience members learn new ways to build an emotional connection to drive future employee engagement.  Erik’s presentation stretches traditional assumptions on leadership. The end results include:

  • innovative solutions to further your organization 
  • attracting and engaging quality employees 
  • new efficiencies and the end of detrimental redundancies

Growth and comfort cannot co-exist. When leaders come from a place of authenticity, curiosity, exploration and purpose, this leads to more meaningful connections among team members and with clients and customers—and ultimately, a more profitable organization. An engaged employee equals an engaged customer.

Ali Wentworth (Exclusively WSB)

A renowned actor, comedian and author of New York Times best seller Ali in Wonderland, The Huffington Post called Ali Wentworth, “the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything.” Kirkus said of Wentworth, “she gracefully and elegantly bares embarrassing stories from her past and hilariously conveys the challenges of her marriage…with wit, the author may inspire others to simply enjoy the moment and not let themselves get in the way.” Wentworth first made a name for herself as a regular on In Living Color. She has appeared on television shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Seinfeld and The Oprah Winfrey Show. She is also the creator, star and executive producer of the critically acclaimed Starz series Head Case. In this enlightening and entertaining session, Wentworth is able to cover topics from women’s issues, marriage and relationships, to wellness, family and parenting, and customize her presentation to suit the needs of your audience. Both humorous and endearing, Wentworth engages audience members by serving up personal anecdotes drawn from her fascinating life and incredible career.

What does it take to be a disruptive leader? Do you need to be a brilliant agitator like Steve Jobs? A driven workaholic with a passion to change the world like Tesla’s Elon Musk? Sure, CEOs like that get a lot of press, but there’s more to success than being loud and charismatic. Truly disruptive leaders are like Master Chefs on a cooking show, always looking for ways to take existing ingredients— the same ones everyone else has access to—and combine them in unique ways.

Those new recipes are a type of investment capital: the more you have, the better. Of course, not all of them will succeed. But disruptive thinking and leadership is less about the success of any one idea and more about putting your business in a position where you have more new ideas to spend than your competition does. Most importantly, being a disruptive leader is about creating a culture where everyone values new recipes. Because if you want to build a disruptive organization, you first have to build more disruptive leaders.

In this highly engaging session, Liz Wiseman will share her research findings and offer a framework for how individuals and companies can think and act with Rookie Smarts—stepping out of their comfort zone and working at their best in the learning zone.
