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.

Noise in the modern world is constant and serves to distract us not only from our greater goals, but also from our internal decision make—our heart. Before we can identify our unique talents and offer them to the world, we first must learn to ignore the noise. By putting down our smart phones and turning our attention inside we often gain insights into some of our most pressing challenges. Join Bash, National Geographic explorer and television host, on an introspective journey to the often intimidating, yet rewarding path of life after college.

At 20 years old Bash was broke, living at home and far removed from the path of his dreams. By 23 he became one of the youngest people to speak in the UN General Assembly Hall and produced an international television show for PBS. His journey to the unexpected has been plagued by failure and tragedy. By ignoring the noise and trusting himself in his greatest moments of doubt Bash was able to discover his potential and create a niche career path a social entrepreneur. Ultimately we’ll learn that fulfillment has less to do with our outer career path and more to do with our inner path—our intention. Through captivating stories and thought provoking exercises students will leave with confidence they need to embrace life after college—in any career they embark on.

Shane Battier (Exclusively WSB)

He can’t jump very high. He’s not very fast. In fact, he fails the ‘eyeball’ test in nearly every basketball category. And yet, Shane Battier has proved to be invaluable to every team he has ever suited up for. In this impassioned and inspiring presentation, Battier shares with audiences the ways in which he believes sacrifice, ownership, embracing failure, championship professionalism, and a Hunger Games mentality contribute to the powerful and significant intersection of art and commerce. A genuine team player, he knows that champions are often made when no one is looking and encourages audience members to always do what it takes for the team to succeed—whether their efforts receive recognition or not. Stats don’t always tell the story of value, and Battier is living proof.

Shane Battier (Exclusively WSB)

What can I control? How do my passion and distinguished skills add value to my organization?
