    Leading Imperfectly: The Value of Being Authentic for Leaders, Professionals, and Human Beings
     

    Hey Superwoman, take off your cape. Hey Batman, take off your mask. Hey decision makers, put away your ego. In this session, attendees will be asked to think about the way they communicate with each other differently by considering this concept: authentic leadership is about using your experiences, your shortcomings and lessons learned to make yourself appear human to your co-workers to create more genuine relationships thus boosting morale and trust. In this manner, you earn far more respect and admiration than you would from trying to be a leader who is a flawless hero. In turn, the bonds you form in your corporation are tighter and the greater the influence you can have on one another.

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    - Learn the definition and application of “Authentic Leadership.”

    - Discover the importance of being a leader who is purposeful, empowering, real and moral.

    - Differentiate between being a hero and a role model (role models make and learn from mistakes instead of trying to be seen as flawless heroes).

    James is an author, professional speaker, personal coach, and trained improv comedian. After nearly 15 years of building, training, supervising, and evaluating teams, James followed an entrepreneurial dream and built two successful businesses. The first is an organization that incorporates freestyle rapping and beatboxing into improv comedy (but that’s a success story for another day). And the second is his speaking and coaching business (which is a success story for today). James has been speaking professionally to willing and unwilling audiences for years and has found that quality humor -- not your lame, laugh-track, dad-joke humor -- is the secret to hosting powerful conversations that make a genuine impact. His attendees leave feeling recharged, introspective, and ready to get out of their own way. James’ cornerstone concept is that we as humans can’t learn from people who are perfect, we can only learn from people who are imperfect. This thread of insight led him to building businesses that focuses on authentic leadership. Companies like American Express and General Electric (GE) have gravitated toward this message and found the insights to be invaluable in shifting the way their teams communicate. With years of research (and a few too many real-life case studies within his work), James learned everything he could about authenticity in the workplace and published his first book, Leading Imperfectly: The value of being authentic for leaders, professionals, and human beings. The concepts in this book and in James’ speeches and workshops are the driving forces behind conversations about communication, rapport building, engagement, feedback, retention, promoting memorability, life balance, increased productivity, and more. Simply put, James is working to bring humanity back into the workplace. Everybody has a story and he’s on a mission to ensure that in their personal life and in their work life, every human realizes that they are enough.
