The H.E.A.R.T. of a Leader – Unlocking Your True Power as a LeaderDavid_Maclean_High

Whether you realize it or not your greatest asset, or liability, is your heart.  Your experience, talents and abilities matter, but they do not have the impact that your heart has.  Your heart is the very essence of who you are, it is your deepest place of conviction, commitment, passion, purpose, identity and life.  A Wholehearted Leader leads and lives from a deep sense of conviction, purpose, passion and identity to engage the hearts of those they lead.  Who you are as a leader, not just what you do, is critical in developing the heart of your organization.

In this presentation David passionately helps you understand it is your H.E.A.R.T that truly differentiates: Humility, Empathy, Authenticity, Risk and Tenacity.

David will help you understand the nature and importance of H.E.A.R.T. and how to unlock your greatest asset to lead and live powerfully and profoundly.  This message can be the catalyst to transform how you lead and how you live.

This presentation is relevant for any organization wanting to encourage, equip, envision and engage their people and their organization to be truly successful.  This is a high energy and entertaining presentation.
