  • Contented Cows Give Better Milk: Your People...Your Profit - Not your average "leadership" speech. Your People...Your Profit helps leaders make the connection between the work environment they create...and their organization's profitability.

  • Bottom Line Leadership - An interactive version of Your People...Your Profit and perfect for leadership training workshops and concurrent session breakouts for groups smaller than a keynote audience.

  • Rebooting Leadership - The events of the last decade - political, social, technological, and economic, coupled with unprecedented changes in the workforce, call for a hard, new look at our leadership practices. Just as we "reboot" the computer when its operating system fails, the leadership system in most people-intensive organizations needs to hit its reset button. While the fundamentals of leadership have not changed, the way we practice them must reflect today's new realities - a world redefined by the economy, technology, and the "new deal" in the workplace. Based on Richard Hadden's book of the same title, Rebooting Leadership is light on theory, with a heavy dose of practicality. This program provides down-and-dirty nitty-gritty how-to's for leaders charged with getting maximum productivity and customer-winning service in today's world of work.
