The Intention Imperative
3 Essential Change That Will Make You A Better Leader Today
Nobody ever got to the top of Mount Everest accidentally. Summiting the highest peak in the world takes clarity and intention; and so does leading successfully.
Intentional Leadership = Clarity (knowing clearly where you want to go) + Intentionality (taking consistent action to get there). Clarity without consistent action is daydreaming. Consistent action without clarity is wasted time and effort.
Just as the tools of successful mountaineering have changed and improved over time, so have the requirements of intentional leadership. Based on 33 years of working with organizations globally, teaching leaders and observing powerful shifts, Mark Sanborn has identified three essential areas of focus for leaders in the world.
YOUR AUDIENCE WILL RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF:
Inspiration: motivation to the power of purpose
Culture: creating the engine that sustains vision and values while achieving desired results
Emotion: designing for and delivering positive emotion for customers and employees
The Potential Principle
How The Best Get Better

YOUR AUDIENCE WILL LEARN:
Why you must pursue your potential and not settle for simply achieving your goals
How to disrupt yourself before somebody else does
