Before the fall, Dov had spent years building a reputation as a dynamic speaker and teacher in the field of personal and professional development but it wasn’t until sometime after ‘the fall’ he began to see the beauty and elegance of what had really happened… The return to his own CORE, what he calls his ‘Authentic Self’.

Speech Topics


FIERCELY LOYAL EMPLOYEES

The world has changed, and so has everything we know about becoming—and remaining—an effective leader when it comes to retaining employees – especially Millennials. Successful Leadership today requires not just loyalty but FIERCE loyalty. We are in the biggest workforce demographic change of all time which means that in the immediate future, corporate winners will be decided by the Millennial generation. Those who fail to attract and retain Millennial talent will lose. It’s as simple as that. Loyalty has become the single most essential ingredient in every successful organization especially with the average cost of turnover to an organization is between 1.5 – 2X the annual salary of that employee. Therefore, the question becomes: How do you develop the kind of leadership and culture that will have your people become Fiercely loyal? In this keynote Dov shares how to develop Fiercely Loyal Employees by focusing on:

  • What Creates Loyalty today?

  • The 4 C’s: Cooperation, Collaboration, Contribution, Community.
  • The Power of Story Telling

FIERCELY LOYAL CUSTOMERS

Keeping customers loyal has become one of the biggest challenge organizations face today because the values of your customers have changed. Today’s customers, especially Millennials (now 35 at their eldest) want to look good, feel good and do good. They want to do business with transparent organizations that are purpose driven. Therefore, what keeps your customers loyal must be focused around these values. So how do you create a deep connection with your customers and have them become Fiercely Loyal to your organization? In this keynote, Dov shares how to develop Fiercely Loyal Customers by focusing on:

  • Your organizations Story and how to share it
  • Applying the Values to create a Fiercely Loyal base
  • Developing Authentic or Full Monty leadership to attract a Fiercely loyal Customer Base
  • The new and effective ways to market and reach your customer today
  • Attachment, Meaning and Story
  • Develop an authentically focused Community

Full Monty (Authentic) Leadership

Build leaders who can lead themselves, their teams, and whole organizations effectively.

We all know the Hans Christian Anderson story of “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” As you may remember, in the story the emperor has been duped, more by his own inflated sense of self than by the tailors of the clothes he thought he was wearing. The result was that the emperor actually had no new clothes, (no clothes at all, in fact) something that is only revealed by an authentic little boy who tells the truth others fear to speak.

Despite the imagery that comes to mind, Full Monty leadership is Not about removing clothing, but rather removing the masks of who we appear to be and revealing who we really are to ourselves and to our people. This in turn begins to Develop a Culture of Fierce Loyalty.

The challenge with leadership in its present form is that when you remove the clothes (the masks of titles and accolades) more often than not, it’s not just the garments that are missing; it’s the person. In other words: There Is No Emperor!

Full Monty Leadership is about revealing the true emperor, the authentic leader that is you! You will discover that by doing so your team becomes Fiercely Loyal to you and your organization.

VULNERABILITY IS POWER!

In this interactive session based on Dõv’s upcoming book, Full Monty Leadership, you will learn:

  • How vulnerability is the ultimate charismatic trait
  • How Vulnerability Generates Fierce Loyalty
  • How companies with leaders who embrace Vulnerability outperform competitors with bigger and better resources
  • How contemporary leadership creates resentment and negatively impacts your bottom line
  • Three sentences guaranteed to generate fierce loyalty
  • How to make sure your top-tier talent doesn’t go to your competitor
  • Why being a Full Monty Leader automatically generates leaders inside your organization

Very few individuals in the world today have studied the true essence of great leaders more deeply than Dõv Baron. He knows that great leadership goes far beyond a set of mere principles as taught today.

Many CEOs and leaders such as yourself have already discovered that there is something missing even when these leadership principles are applied. This is because leadership principles applied without a depth of vulnerability always fall short

Vulnerably is the true power that makes leadership principles work and drives Fierce Loyalty.

Dõv Baron’s “Full Monty Leadership” is inspired by such leaders as Richard Branson, the Dali Lama, Martin Luther King Jr, John F. Kennedy, Jack Welch, and Larry Winget.

Building a Momentum Culture

Build a culture that has your people deeply emotionally engaged with your mission, vision and purpose.

Just as a snowball rolling down a mountain can become an avalanche, in a momentum culture when “key” people (Your Corporate Cultural Momentum Connoisseurs) begin moving in a certain direction, everyone else is pulled in that direction, which, in turn, causes an avalanche of passion, commitment, productivity and Fierce Loyalty.

However, in business it’s not quite as simple as deciding to let the snowball of business roll down the hill.

EMOTIONAL ENGAGEMENT = MOMENTUM CULTURE

In this interactive session based on Dõv’s upcoming book,Full Monty Leadership, you will learn:

  • Why emotionally sanitizing the work environment pushes your best people out
  • Why most organizations will never discover their own best talent
  • The fastest way to discover your own best talent pool
  • The three phases of corporate cultural momentum and what phase will put your organization into a cultural death spiral.
  • How to get your employees to not only emotionally engage, but also think and feel like owners.
  • Dismantling Silos and developing Corporate Cultural Connoisseurs.

The fact is the #1 issue companies are facing today is “Loyalty.” All companies face the same problem: How to get the not good people, but great people to stay.

Very often when a company is started, the corporate culture is a secondary consideration at best. It shouldn’t be. No matter how big, or how small your company is, designing, building and nurturing a healthy Corporate Culture will have a massive effect on your profit margins. Make no mistake; profit will not be lasting if you don’t have a Corporate Culture that that creates momentum!

A clear, healthy, and well-nurtured Corporate Culture becomes the glue that will hold your entire team together in the good times when growth is happening at hyper-speed. Not only that, it will keep the company intact in low times when everyone is pushed to handle more than was laid out in their job description because you will have generated Fierce loyalty!

Giving Up Your Identity to Discover Your Genuine Impact Potential

In this conversation Dõv will address:

  • Why Identity loss can be crippling
  • Why your best is Not behind you but ahead of you
  • How to tap into the full and mostly untouched potential of who you are(beyond your past accolades)
  • How to take the worst thing that happened to you and make it into the springboard that will propel you too new and greater heights
  • Why giving up your previous identity is your golden ticket for future success
  • How to discover the truth of who you are and leverage it to making a greater impact and becoming a hero again

The Most Powerful Way a Leader can Inspire, Bond with and Motivate (without manipulation) is Through the Vulnerability of Honing and Sharing Their Full Monty Story!
