Session Description
Followers are not interested in leaders who cannot, or will not, "walk the talk".  Asking people to change, improve and achieve more is a waste of time when their leader cannot model the desired behaviors in his or her own life. Participants in this session will learn that personal leadership is at the foundation of the leadership process and that, in order to build trust and lead the business forward, they must first take on the responsibility of leading themselves. Participants will also learn to focus on the true drivers of performance, regain critical planning and personal time, dramatically increase work and life engagement, and get more done in less time with less stress.  

Steve McClatchy is a keynote speaker, workshop leader and author of the New York Times bestseller Decide: Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress & Lead by Example.  Steve has spoken before thousands of audiences on the topics of leadership, performance, personal growth, and work/life engagement.  His client list includes the NFL, Google, Pfizer, Microsoft, Disney, Comcast, Accenture, HP, Ikea, DHL Europe, Tiffany’s, Wells Fargo and Campbell’s Soup.  He is a frequent guest lecturer in many of America’s top business graduate schools including Harvard and Wharton and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, WebMD Magazine, Fast Company, Oprah Magazine, Entrepreneur and Investor’s Business Daily.  Steve’s passion is for continual improvement and believes that when we stop growing, learning, gaining experience and achieving goals we stop living.
