The HERO Effect: Creating a Culture of Heroes at Every Level

Kevin Brown, Professional Speaker/Motivational Storyteller with Kevin Brown Enterprises, LLC.

"A fresh, powerful and relevant message."

—John G. Miller, Bestselling Author

Kevin Brown has a simple philosophy when it comes to leadership: you're "a leader of one or a leader of none." Put another way, leadership begins with mastering yourself and the daily habits required to become a world class leader, mentor and coach. We reproduce what we are!

You'll learn the leadership principles within what Brown calls The Hero Effect so you can:

  • Create strong connections with people via transformational moments
  • Use the best of who you are to serve more people, more often, in bigger and better ways
  • Perform intentional acts of difference making, not random acts of kindness
  • See what others cannot—possibilities instead of problems

You'll be able to immediately implement the actionable ideas you receive and begin creating a higher culture of excellence at every level in your organization.

Creating Cultures of Leadership and the Power of "Lollipop Moments"

Drew Dudley, Founder & Chief Catalyst, Day One Leadership

"One of the seven speeches that will make you a better leader."

—TIME magazine

How many of you are completely comfortable with calling yourself a leader?

If you asked that question at your next credit union meeting, how many hands would be raised? In most organizations, a majority of employees aren't willing to call themselves leaders. That's a problem—and Drew Dudley wants to help you solve it.

We often evaluate leadership over periods of time: a fiscal quarter, a year, even an entire career. But the most impactful leaders and organizations focus on "everyday leadership" and ensure it's fostered, acknowledged, and rewarded. This means creating what Dudley describes as "lollipop moments"—moments of powerful impact and growth that are transformative at every level of an organization.

In his keynote, voted "one of the 15 most inspirational TED talks of all time," you'll receive practical insights on how successful leaders create cultures of leadership in their own lives and within their organizations. Dudley's examples and analyses will make you laugh, think, and reconsider the ways you evaluate leadership in your life and workplace.
