Authentic Leader™ Training and Speaking Topics

Leadership Influence Without a Title;
Overcoming 9 Leadership Struggles to Achieve Authentic Success

Learn the results of an Authentic Leader™ study that identified the 9 top struggles people need to overcome to succeed as a leader. Not only will you learn what the 9 struggles are, but you will also hear personal stories that explain how to overcome each.

This topic applies to new leaders, experienced leaders in a new leadership role, influencers who choose to lead without a title, and experienced leaders who are growing new leaders in their organization.

Creating Results;
Getting Things Done Through Others Without Confrontation

Strategically delegating work is critical for leaders to create time to work on more important and higher impact activities. Leaders have a list of reasons they don’t or won’t delegate. Christopher outlines why delegation fails and reasons why delegation is one of the best levers for high performance. Leaders will learn the three questions leaders must ask before delegating and the four phases of delegation.

Confrontation and conflict are real concerns for leaders when holding people accountable. Leaders will leave with a simple four-step process that virtually eliminates conflict and confrontation when holding people accountable.

Taking Control of Your Brand;
Establishing and Growing Your Influence Through Your Personal Brand

Many leaders don’t make time to consider their personal brand. Leaders need to be strategic about their brand and how their brand connects to their organization’s brand. A purposeful personal brand will help them grow their influence in their organization, community, and industry. Like any organization, leaders also have a brand and it’s important to be intentional about purposefully establishing a brand.

Leaders will identify their current brand and receive a framework for establishing an intentional personal brand. Christopher helps leaders to identify the top benefits of a strong personal brand. Leaders will determine their brand’s current reach and where their brand may need to reach to achieve their stretch goals.

Leading Through Prioritization;
Ensuring Focus on High-Performance Activities

It is hard to have confidence that your time is spent on activities that will create high performance. To increase that confidence, it is critical to have a system to help determine the activities that align with your mission and aspirations.

Leaders will learn about a simple criteria system that will categorize every activity and then easily determine which activities will create high performance in them and the people they lead. They will also understand how focusing on the right activities help move from “normal” performance to high-performance.

Using Resources that Make a Difference in You;
Grow Your Influence Through Untapped Development Tools

It has been said, if you aren’t growing you are dying. There are so many options available. How do leaders choose to make the most of their time?

Discover development tools you can use to expand your influence. Strategically tap into these resources to learn how to grow your influence with these development resources. We will discuss how effective leaders use technology equipment, tools & systems, and content resources to help them maximize their production every day.
