“We were successful with our ERP replacement initiative due, in part, to your presentations on running successful projects. In particular, the presentation Cover Oregon, What Would You Do? opened my eyes to create an atmosphere of accountability, need to continually define and adjust for achievable scope, and manage the team to a “forced march” toward completion with a focus on “what can be done” and not trying to do everything. Thank you.”

Extreme Leadership: A Matter of Life and Death

(1 Vote)

Leadership is a journey. Events in our personal and professional lives shape us as leaders. In a heartbeat, how we lead and its impact can change our lives, those of our loved ones, and the people around us. The most trying of these events come in our personal lives. Personal events, such as serious illness or death of a loved one, are high-stress, emotional situations where we must be leaders with little or no authority. A skill that is also indispensable in the office, for instance, when working for a difficult boss, being fired, or any number of other circumstances where we have little or no control. These “leadership passages” shape us as leaders. Understanding how these situations affect our leadership strategies, traits, and actions that make up our leadership style, helps us overcome seemly insurmountable challenges.

Leadership can save your business or save your life

Mr. Williams uses personal challenges to help the audience learn:  

  • How different leadership styles are applied to achieve results
  • The importance of situational leadership
  • That getting through seemingly insurmountable situations requires creating a plan, building a team, and maintaining a can-do attitude
  • How difficult situations shape and strengthen us as leaders

Many people leave their professional skills behind when they leave the office. However, in this keynote, the combination of high emotions, deeply personal situations, and rapid adjustment of leadership style take your audience down the path to a new appreciation of the importance of their vocation in their lives.

Objectives:

  • We can be leaders in situations where we have no authority
  • We do not get through seemingly insurmountable situations without creating a plan, building a team, and a can-do attitude
  • Our leadership style needs to change based on the situation
  • Difficult situations shape and strengthen us as leaders

Customize to Your Theme

Extreme Leadership is a multifaceted motivational keynote fully customizable to your event. It highlights the following aspects of leadership:

  • It is a journey
  • It is dynamic. Every situation needs a different approach
  • It does not need authority. It is not a title. It is something you earn
  • Leaders have positive attitudes regardless of the situation
  • It has core technical traits that, as individuals, we develop. While traits based on our personalities and are much harder to change
  • There are leadership passages that we go through that define who we are as leaders. These may be work-based—a new job, stretch goal assignments, being fried, etc.—or personal—severe illness, death of a loved one, etc.. These passages are learning events. How we handle them determines what type of leader we become

A full one-hour video of the presentation is available on request that is customized for PMI Northern Utah's 750 attendees in the following way:

  • The audience is all project managers
  • The event organizer, Liz Price, had a theme of STEAM (Stories That Enliven and Motivate) needed a central message to inspire people on the longest day of their three-day event.
