Create Leaders At Every Level

Why are only a few workplaces completely fulfilling to work in while many others aren’t? Why do only a few organizations unleash the power and potential of the people working there?

Imagine instead, workplaces where people eagerly come to work with a sense of purpose and go home with a sense of fulfillment.

Leaders in these workplaces do one fundamental thing different than other organizations. Instead of treating people like followers who need to be told what to do, they treat everyone like leaders. They trust their teams with the authority to make decisions and ensure they have the tools to succeed.

In this fast-paced, interactive and inspiring keynote, Andy Worshek explains how to build leaders at every level based upon his experience on a nuclear submarine and in business. Part story-telling, part leadership transformation, part actionable take-aways, this talk leaves audiences reinvigorated to lead from where they are and turn those around them into leaders as well. As a result, audiences will be on their way to unleashing the talent around them.
