Leading through Change & Crisis: GRACE under pressure

Crisis can bring out the best in leaders; they must rise to the challenge of a world turned upside down. The very best leaders do this by leveraging their purpose with their sense of grace.

Leaders need to demonstrate resilience in the face of adversity, provide clarity in times of uncertainty, and deliver hope when fear abounds. And do it all with a sense of grace that reflects humility, empathy and respect for others.

In his keynote, John Baldoni reveals how leaders use the concept of grace to help us learn, grow and fulfill the “greater good.” The presentation explores three concepts:
• Take Care of Your Team (Adversity, Stress, Resilience, Affirmation)
• Take Care of Yourself (Make This Your Finest Hour!)
• Prepare for What’s Next (Capitalize on the Crisis)

MOXIE: The Secret to Bold and Gutsy Leadership

Leading others to achieve positive results is not easy. Not only must leaders be smart, they must be resilient. They need to be able to view challenges as opportunities. And if they are knocked down they need to find ways to pick up themselves as well as their teams. In short successful leaders have something that distinguishes them from others.

We say they have “moxie” – one part determination, one part smarts, and one part courage!
Leaders need to be opportunistic in the sense of wanting to make positive things happen. Leaders also need to have the disposition to succeed as well as the inner resourcefulness to persevere. We call this the “right stuff to lead,” or X-factors. Leaders know that risk is involved with most ventures so they must be willing to do things differently. They must be innovators.
And all good leaders know that they by themselves accomplish very little. They must engage with others in order to achieve sustainable goals for themselves, their teams and their organizations. Moxie is an attribute that successful leaders utilize to make a positive difference in the world in which they live.

In his keynote “MOXIE: The Secret to Bold and Gutsy Leadership,” John Baldoni will show how leaders can learn to:
• Mindfulness… Practice it consistently
• Opportunity… Capitalize on it
• X Factor… Put the “Right Stuff of Leadership” to work
• Innovation… Create pathways to success
• Engagement… Achieve intended results with others

Lead with Purpose: Give Your Organization a Reason to Believe in Itself

When an organization succeeds it is because they know what they do and why they do it. We say they have purpose.

When I speak to executives, I ask them: what would you give to have an entire company full of employees who know what they do, love it and want to keep on doing it. They smile wistfully knowing that such commitment is rare. But in reality it is only rare because companies do not take enough time nurturing such attitudes in the workplace.

It is up to leaders to make certain that organizational purpose is understood and acted upon. Based upon research and interviews with business executives in multiple sectors I have concluded that there are five key people-smart things that businesses must do to succeed in the new future.

In this presentation, John will explore:
• How defined purpose can help your team thrive and achieve
• Ways to make people your first priority
• How to turn good intentions into great results
• How to make employees “comfortable with the uncomfortable” (i.e. ambiguity)
• How make it safe to fail (and prevail)
• How to create your legacy with emerging leaders

12 Steps to Power Presence: How to Assert Your Authority to Lead
Amazon
April 06, 2010
Acclaimed author, speaker, and coach John Baldoni maintains that “leadership presence” is a form of communication, which therefore can be learned. But merely thinking good thoughts and voicing good intentions is never enough; ethical actions are the cornerstone of any leader’s position. In this succinct, provocative, no-punches-pulled read, he demonstrates how managers can improve their presence strategically and tactically to develop the trust of their people so that they can accomplish their goals and the goals of the organization. Baldoni't book 12 Steps to Power Presence does this by defining what genuine leadership presence is, including the five attributes of authority, and discussing right and wrong ways to demonstrate leadership based on real-life examples. Readers will learn: how to communicate objectives in ways that get people on board--even when it comes to tough subjects like layoffs, closures, and terminations; how to avoid the pitfalls of “analysis paralysis”; how to instill genuine pride in your team members for their own work and the company’s; and how to share your insights with your team to coach them and create future leaders. Philosophers and management theorists have endlessly debated--and just as endlessly written about--the most important qualities of the world’s top leaders. Ultimately, 12 Steps to Power Presence will guide you through the process of discovering, developing, and delivering on the most impactful leadership trait within your control: your presence.
