In today’s complex business environment, leaders face stronger competition with fewer resources and they feel enormous pressure for improved performance. The people they lead feel increasingly overworked and stressed out, too. And both employees and society in general are looking for business leaders that meet renewed standards for values and integrity. The old story of
leadership—management through command, control and fear—has failed to give leaders the guidance and support they seek in these difficult times or to restore balance and respect to the workplace.
As a speaker Lance Secretan’s New Story of Leadership speaks directly to these concerns. Lance sees business as potentially the most important source of positive change in the world today. His Higher Ground Leadership(sm) offers leaders practical ways to connect worker satisfaction to the bottom line and lead their organizations to Higher Ground. Lance’s presentation awakens the inner potential of his audience members and shows them how to use their new strengths to become Inspirational Leaders themselves.
Lance speaks with the authority of personal success as a business leader himself. As its CEO, he built Manpower Limited into one of the largest employers in the world. He then retired at 40 and, in the early 1990s, created the Secretan Center, devoting himself to teaching Higher Ground Leadership(sm) full-time. He has been a professor of entrepreneurship at two universities and an award-winning columnist for IndustryWeek.
He’s written ten books on various aspects of Higher Ground Leadership.
