Jeb Bush’s passion for big ideas and how they shape policy led to sweeping reforms in Florida while he was Governor. Bush applies this visionary understanding of the issues about the country’s future by posing a few simple questions: What are the enduring American values that can provide a strong defense against tough economic times? Do today’s current policies—from health care to the economy to immigration—reflect those values? And how will these policies shape the Obama Administration's agenda in his second term? Bush treats audiences to a candid and informative discussion of the issues on the minds of most Americans, engaging audiences with the same unique perspective that has made him one of the most recognized voices in politics today. With an eye to the future, Bush evaluates how the Obama Administration is working with a divided Congress and what it means as both political parties look to grow their influence over the electorate in the coming years.
Jeb Bush’s definition of leadership--being an advocate for big ideas that require big changes--informed his sweeping reforms during his tenure as governor of Florida. In the face of radical change, he advocated new solutions to replace outmoded policies that no longer worked effectively. At the heart of his success was his ability to inspire citizens, businesspeople and policy makers to embrace change as the only way to take charge of the future. In eight years, he reformed traditional institutions as education and health care and directed the swift preparations and intense response efforts to eight hurricanes. Governor Bush knows first-hand how to unite a disparate bureaucracy into one focused on innovation and continual success, and understands how to lead an unwieldy organization through growth, change and crisis. Audiences will learn why leaders should:
· Encourage transparency: Say what they're going to do and then do it;
· Surround themselves with good people, set high expectations and watch them be met;
· Stay connected and enfranchise the disenfranchised;
· Understand that success is never final, that reform is never complete and that leadership requires constant vigilance.
