Lead with Trust
Learn how to become the type of leader who can influence people to enthusiastically join with you to make great things happen

PRESENTED BY:

Don Shapiro takes managers, owners and executives on a fun, inspiring and revealing journey into the latest thinking and research on what type of leaders produce the best results and how to become one of those leaders. This energetic program explores what leadership really is and how to become a trusted leader. Your people will learn how to influence their people to enthusiastically join with them to produce great results. Not all leadership approaches are equal when it comes to producing results. While most leadership ideas can help you work better with your people, that alone will not raise your people's performance enough to actually improve results. Don's research shows there are certain types of leaders that produce higher sales, customer satisfaction, employee engagement, employee retention, profits and better volunteer efforts. The five myths of leadership and the truth about what makes one a leader... 1. Leadership is not about your title, position, power or authority 2. Leadership is not a skill 3. Leadership is not about having a bigger than life personality 4. Leadership is not about having big, bold, innovative ideas 5. Leadership and management are not the same thing Leadership is about who you are....your character. Your beliefs, values and attitudes drive how you behave which determines if people trust you. People trust your character...not your title, skills, personality or ideas. When you are a trusted leader, you are a leader twenty four hours a day no matter what you are doing because it's who you are. Leaders build enough trust to influence people to enthusiastically join with them to make great things happen! Don brings this definition to life so his audiences understand that leadership is all about voluntary action and being a leader is about who we are, not the task we perform. Please visit www.firstconcepts.com and read Don's blog on "What is leadership and what is a leader?" 11 questions about how well you build trust that can influence people... 1. Do you care enough about your people that you want them to win at work and at life? 2. Do you do what you say you will do, act with integrity and reflect the highest principles? 3. Do you frequently show your people appreciation and celebrate their accomplishments? 4. Do you encourage people to become leaders themselves and support them when they spread their leadership wings? 5. When someone falls short, are you bothered by having to point this out, or do you look forward to an opportunity to help them develop and grow from this experience? 6. Do you help your people discover a compelling purpose that goes beyond receiving rewards, recognition and compensation? 7. Do your actions communicate how much respect you have for your people? 8. Do you act as a role model for how you want your people to act? 9. Do you clarify how everything should be done so your people can succeed at doing it? 10. Do you see yourself serving those you lead with humility by helping them grow and develop and clearing away the obstacles in their path? 11. Why are you a leader? What is your purpose in being a leader? Is it to serve those you lead or see your name in lights? Don's energetic, fun and involving program explores what trust is, why people do and don't trust, and how to build trust. He helps his audiences understand the type of leadership character that builds trust and how to develop that character. This program is based on a lifetime of experience combined with the latest research on leadership, employee engagement, employee retention and servant leadership. It takes audiences beyond most of what they've ever heard or read about leadership and gives them the keys to unlock their full leadership potential. In high school, Don conducted leadership development programs for newly elected student body presidents. He entered a management training program with Lawry's Restaurants out of college and worked up to being a general manager. Lawry's has remained in business 93 years because of its focus on leadership and employees. Don has literally spent almost his entirely life involved in leadership and leadership development. As a management consultant for the last 30 years, he has assessed hundreds of business owners and managers which allowed him to discover common patterns in why some operations produced superior results to their counterparts. It's all about leadership.
