The First 90 Days

Leaders assuming a new leadership position in their current organization or a new organization must map out their success or risk failure. Roy facilitates the development of the new leader's acceleration plan and offers insight into promoting yourself, acquiring key learning, matching strategy to the situation, securing early wins, and negotiating wins with your new boss or board.

Critical Decision Making

A leader’s ability to make sound, ethical decisions is more important now than ever. Roy facilitates an energetic seminar on ethical decision making that is informative and relevant. Roy utilizes real life situations from a wide range of contexts and contemporary ethical theories as the foundation for the learning in this course. Roy facilitates robust discourse and engagement with and between seminar participants. Roy believes that allowing theory to inform experience, and experience to inform theory, that seminar participants leave the session equipped with a "toolbox" they can use immediately in their personal and professional lives.

RadioActive Leadership

Positivity wrapped in self motivation and leadership is a powerfully transformative force in organizations and in people's personal lives. Roy shows individuals how they can be a positive force and positively influence the behavior of everyone around them to accomplish organizational and personal goals. You do not have to be a formal leader in an organization to have influence. You just have to possess the type of positive energy that attracts people and makes people want to follow you and be around you. Seminar participants do not just leave this seminar informed about the principles of radioactive leadership, they leave this seminar energized and changed for good.

Culture Revolt

Every year we read about successful organizations that make what appears to be a well timed strategy change that results in utter disaster. Organizational insiders and outside critics quickly point out the flaws in the strategy or the missteps of the top leadership in the execution of the new strategy. The reality is most strategies are fundamentally sound and based on solid industry research. Problems quickly surface when organizational leaders fail to take into account the organization's culture and tolerance for strategy change. Through the use of current case studies that are industry specific, Roy highlights the impact of organizational culture on strategy execution. Roy also demonstrates how organizational leaders can "stress test" their organization's culture to determine how to best execute the new strategy in harmony with organizational culture to increase the probability of success.

Caution: Major Workforce Shift Just Ahead

Globalization, technology, social media and the rapidly changing demographics of the workplace are creating a perfect storm in the American workplace. This perfect storm will result in several major paradigm shifts that will change the American workplace forever. Organizations prepared for the storm will benefit from disruption, and organizations unprepared for the disruption face serious threats to their survival and possible extinction. Through the use of predictive analytics and concepts emerging from social futurists, Roy forecasts the storm and outlines an appropriate organizational response that ensures organizational survival and success.
