Personal Leadership

Your life is a product of your decisions. Your criteria for making decisions are at the very core of your effectiveness. Great decision-making habits lead to success and achievements while poor ones can keep you stressed, frustrated, and out of balance. Understanding the psychology of what drives every decision you make empowers you to make better decisions faster. Just as a business must never stop learning, improving, and innovating to lead in the marketplace, as individuals we are faced with this same challenge.

In this presentation you will learn which decisions accelerate your success, increase your engagement, reduce your stress, prevent burnout and restore the feeling of balance. Steve’s infectious energy and thought-provoking style will inspire you with specific actionable content that you can put into practice immediately.

If you are interested in learning a decision-making system that can help you achieve more, overcome obstacles, and help you face the challenge of succeeding in today’s “global, always on, virtual, work from anywhere” business environment, this is a “don’t miss” presentation.

Decide: Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress & Lead by Example

What shapes a leader’s outcomes, career and life? Their decisions. The criteria we all use for making decisions drives our performance – and our effectiveness as leaders.

If your success is determined by your ability to work successfully through others it’s time to take your relationships to the next level.

• Build faster, more reliable, high performance relationships
• Resolve conflict when it happens so it doesn’t slow you down
• Better communicate, set expectations and drive superior results
• Lead! Don’t Just Manage the Process
