Sometimes participants in my leadership workshops want to talk about disruption. And sometimes during the ensuing discussion I will jump in and say, “No, that’s not disruption. That’s just a big change.”

Success today requires a new leadership mindset. Simplify, clarify, focus, innovate to create value, even disrupt…these are all parts of the mindset of today’s successful leader. Participants will gain new perspectives on effective leadership, and will discover a simple, powerful process that creates a daily focus on high return activities for leaders and their teams.
In this interactive session, Joe shares insights on leadership drawn from his 30+ years working with leaders of companies including the Fortune 500, small businesses, franchise organizations, and non-profits. Joe is also a founding investor and leadership advisor with successful startups, is a principal in The Disruption Lab consulting group, and served as Executive In Residence with Belmont University’s Center for Entrepreneurship.
The Leadership Mindset workshop can add significant value to your leadership development event or strategic planning retreat, bringing new ideas and fresh energy to your team.
The session includes ideas from Joe’s popular books:
The Leadership Mindset – How Today’s Successful Business Leaders Think (Coming Fall 2018!)
Customer experience drives the market, because what your customers think and say about you is the most powerful force in influencing new customers to do business with you. That’s the marketplace of today. Nothing compares with the power of customer word of mouth, especially on social media. This session on Leading The Customer Focused Team is about being intentional, focused, and strategic in having your team create compelling customer experiences that drive new customer growth.
We’ll draw on ideas from Joe’s game changing books:
If you get your culture right, it can be your key differentiator. The most valuable assets a company can have are great employees who love to come to work every day, and great potential employees who want to work for you. You can’t “not” have a culture. The question is whether your culture is intentional, by design, and strengthened by leadership each and every day.
Learn real world lessons from Joe’s work with market leading companies that have also been recognized nationally as “best places to work.”
Session includes ideas on great cultures from Joe’s books:

Early in my career I worked in the real estate business. We were busy, which was good. But busy meant a lot of contracts, documents, and agreements, and with a high level of activity there was more chance that something could occasionally go wrong.
I know speakers who are wizards with Powerpoint and it adds great value to their presentations. But in the typical company meeting, PowerPoint presentations are usually a collection of mind-numbing bullet points. There’s a better way, if you have the creativity, intelligence, and guts to try it.
Imagine a baseball player asking, “How can I swing the bat in a way that’s different from any other baseball player?” Really? Who cares? What’s the point? For the baseball player, the right question is, “How can I get more hits?” Many businesses ask “How can we be different?” Or, “How can we innovate?” Or, “How can we disrupt?”
