Leadership Illusions

Embrace true leadership principles and overcome the obstacles that hold us back.

We live in a world that says if you can’t see it then it isn’t real. Ken blows that philosophy out of the water visually with some mind-blowing illusions and educationally with some extremely powerful leadership lessons. Drawing from his book, Leadership Illusion, 21 Things People Believe About Leadership That Are Not True, this presentation combines the truths of leadership with some entertaining illusions from Ken’s illusion show that he’s been doing for the last 30 years. Believe the lies and you’ll live them; embrace the truth and you’ll thrive in your leadership journey.

Attendees will learn:

  • The ability to distinguish between illusions and reality in the area of leadership.
  • The importance of personal leadership.
  • Common leadership myths and how to recognize and avoid them.
  • The power of a vision.
  • How to overcome mistakes and thrive.
  • How leadership skills can be developed by anyone, anytime.
  • How to overcome limiting beliefs to lead themselves and others.

This experience is high entertainment, high inspiration, and high impact!

Connecting for Maximum Productivity

Connect with yourself and with others like never before and watch your productivity go through the roof!

The number one thing that holds organizations back is a lack of communication. Everyone is talking, but very few people actually connect. Drawing from his Amazon best-selling book, DISCover Your Team’s Potential, using the DISC model of human behavior, as well as some jaw- dropping illusions, Ken will show everyone how to understand themselves in a way they never have before. But more importantly, he will show everyone how to understand the people who are around them every day and how to connect with them in a meaningful way.

Attendees will learn:

  • How and why they are wired the way they are.
  • The four temperaments and how they think and operate.
  • What their unique temperamental language is.
  • How others they encounter on a daily basis are wired.
  • How to speak the temperamental languages of others.
  • How to truly connect in a meaningful way.
  • How to overcome communication roadblocks.

True connection in the workplace is the key to making your productivity soar.  Let Ken show you how.
