Active Leadership: A servant approach to leading and empowering teams

Liz Nead shares 6 powerful leadership strategies she learned climbing 19,000 feet to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. As she witnessed and experienced the techniques the African and American climb guides used to get 14 novice climbers safely to the top, she realized effective leadership is not a lone voice controlling the masses.

As an adult, she began to explore her roots and as she uncovered the personal artifacts of her life, she also discovered six powerful truths around human identity.

Play Your Game: accessing your internal blueprint

Each person is born with a unique game that cannot be duplicated by anyone else. Often individuals are taught there is a formula for advancement- they must duplicate a way of talking, thinking and leading that points to success. Imitation often leads to an uncomfortable feeling you somehow don't have the right equipment- and others are better equipped to prosper. Liz Nead believes true success comes from understanding the equipment you were born with, developing these talents into skills and learning to play your game with your team. Liz uses powerful examples of historical and modern day inventors, entertainers and leaders and shares simple strategies to implement your game in communication, leadership, organization and creativity.
