The Leadership Challenge's Speaker's Series

Presented by
The Leadership Challenge’s Speaker’s Series in a “Ted Talk” style. This session features three speakers who will bring you a different experience of leadership through their brief but powerful messages.

Speaker1: Roxanne Kaufman Elliott
Session Title: JOE
Session Description:
This is the story of Joe. A humble man who lived simply, quietly and kindly, and yet, he was one of the greatest leaders I have ever known. Joe never had a real job; lived on his parent’s farm all of his life; took care of his parents until they passed; worked tirelessly in the community, for the church and all the causes you can imagine; never had a social security card or a bank account; never went to college; and rarely left the town he was born in. He was also one of the most well-read, intelligent and wise men the world has seen; was an amazing self-taught handy man, electrician and craftsman; and amassed a small fortune in cash that he kept hidden on the farm.

Anyone who ever knew Joe would have followed him over a cliff without a second thought – I am at the top of that list to this day.

Joe radiated the five practices of exemplary leadership… and lived an extraordinary life that impacted innumerable people in the most incredible ways. How did he do that? Was he born a leader? Did he somehow learn about the five practices? How could someone like Joe, with such a humble background be such a great leader? Joe’s simple story will open the door to some rather profound insights on authentic leadership and will perhaps begin to answer these questions and more.

Speaker 2: Amanda Nelson
Session Title: Challenge the Process: Complexity
Session Description:
In a world of increasing complexity, leadership becomes more important.  In this short TED-style talk, we explore the latest leadership theory, Complexity Leadership Theory, and how it reinforces the role of leadership in making systems evolve rather than atrophy. Program: Using OARS to Navigate TLC

Speaker 3: Alan Lyme
Session Title: Using OARS to Navigate TLC
Session Description:
Did you ever get stuck for a response to keep a training or coaching session moving forward? Alan will provide a brief description of the parallels between TLC and Motivational Interviewing, with two short exercises demonstrating the power of OARS (Open questions, Affirmations, Reflections, and Summaries) when facilitating TLCW or coaching the LPI
"The Leadership Challenge Forum is a transformational leadership experience. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from leadership scholars and experts coupled with the opportunity to network with colleagues."
- Ron Siers, Department Chair, Department of Education Specialties at Salisbury University
