On the other hand, organizations with a culture of engagement are 21% more profitable.

In this keynote, Dr. E draws upon years of coaching C-Suite leaders and high performing athletes, as well as research and science from her acclaimed book, Get Out of the Red Zone. She equips leaders and individuals with the tools needed to overcome the hidden obstacles that hinder engagement.

Leadership from the Inside Out
When you think about great leaders you often read about traits like authenticity, communication, collaboration and the ability to be visionary. However, none of these characteristics are truly possible if you don’t lead from the inside out.

Because actions are determined by your thoughts, elevating how you perceive situations and people can change everything. Leading from the inside out may, in fact, be the single most important ability for a leader to possess, and yet most people are never taught these vital skills.

Your mindset can make or break your leadership success. In this keynote, Clinical Psychologist, Transformative Speaker and the person Shaquille O’Neal calls his “Head Coach for Happiness,” Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo (Dr. E) uses relevant stories and cutting-edge research to explore how to optimize leadership from the inside out. She also draws upon data from her acclaimed book, Get Out of the Red Zone, to provide strategies for leading out of stress and beyond the fear of uncertainty. Audience members will walk away with immediate, actionable strategies to motivate emerging and diverse organizational talent, exceeding your annual company objectives.
