Leading Through Change, Challenge & Chaos

How do you keep your emerging and established leaders energized and enthusiastic as they tackle massive change? How do your leaders help their team members cope with overwhelm and ambiguity?

Give them the greatest gift of all: hope.  

In her dynamic keynote, Libby shares the scientific data on Hope Theory as well as her own research and insights on the impact of hope on the workplace. She demonstrates why hope is one of the most important elements of successful leadership and culture - as well as one of its most overlooked. She provides relevant company-specific customization and a dynamic interactive approach that gets audiences thinking, talking, and - most important - taking action on new ideas the very same day.

Her interactive presentation will:

  • Infuse your team with vision and vitality by learning the science-based benefits of Hope Theory.

  • Experience a rousing call-to-action that will leave participants equipped - and responsible - for their own success.
