The Authentic Leader…
It’s About PRESENCE – Not Position

Presenters: David Irvine, Jim Reger
Format: Keynote and/or Workshop


Great leadership cannot be reduced to technique or position or power. Great leadership comes from the strength of one’s authentic presence – the identity and integrity of the leader. Authentic leaders energize, engage and focus others to operate at their full potential. They have the ability to turn the vision of a desired future into reality with and through the passionate cooperation of others. To successfully attract, retain and develop a winning team, the leaders of the future must inspire deep trust and commitment.

This session will address the core leadership traits of transformative leaders:

  • Deep Accountability – the power of agreement
  • Relationship Building – the power of connection
  • Embracing Change – the power of possibility
  • Values Alignment – the power of congruence
  • Personal Balance – the power of priority

Authentic leadership provides hope and meaning for employees; they begin to believe that their own future goals can be realized through the organization’s goals.

Commitment, not authority, produces the greatest results.

To be successful in the 21st century, the strategic resources of an organization will include information, knowledge, creativity and superior caring. There is only one way an organization can gain access to these valuable commodities - through the people in whom they reside.

To make an organization more intelligent; to bring a work force together; to create and design better products and services; and to consistently achieve a team’s full potential, the leaders of the future must learn how to grow and nurture their people.
