The Four Pillars of Leadership: Turning Managers Into Leaders

Business growth requires people development at all levels. But the critical stage where Managers transition into Leaders is the first step on the long journey of Leadership Development.

Developing a manager who lacks the proper foundations into a leader is like pushing a boulder uphill…stop for a second and it rolls over you. However, when thoughtfully chosen, the Manager’s transition to Leader moves with its own momentum.

Every organization has their own unique Core Values, but the qualities of Leadership potential are universal.

In this thought-provoking Keynote, Tra dispels some commonly held myths about the foundations of Leadership and outlines clear and actionable ways to measure the Leadership potential of a Manager. 

Attendees will leave knowing:

  1. How to eliminate their own personal biases when accessing potential.
  2. How to avoid confusing consistency with a company’s core values with leadership potential.
  3. The four pillars of leadership potential from which all other characteristics flow.
  4. How to recognize the signs that show whether or not you have chosen the correct team member to be a leader.

Leadership, Teamwork and Trust

Trust can take a lifetime to build and yet it can be destroyed in a second.  Despite being the foundation of effective leadership and teamwork, most organizations spend very little time talking about and nurturing trust.

While the dynamics of trust and how it is built are exceedingly complex, the metrics we all use to measure another person’s trustworthiness are surprisingly simple.

This Keynote is a journey. Tra pulls deep personal and professional insight from researching his deceased father’s prowess as a decorated Drill Sergeant to modern day social movements that transcend cultural variances.

Attendees will leave understanding:

  1. How to recognize the presence or absence of Trust within your team or organization.
  2. How to lay the foundations of trust when initiating relationships.
  3. How to correct missteps that could potentially undermine a person’s trust in you.
  4. The one powerfully simple thing that each person must do in order for others to consider him or her trustworthy.

Feed Your Unicorn - How to Recapture the Life You Were Meant to Live

Ninety four percent of all adults are not living the life they envisioned for themselves as children. Most feel trapped within the world that they created for themselves. As a result, they often lead a life that is filled with obligation yet devoid of purpose. 

In this groundbreaking Keynote based on Tra’s upcoming book, he depicts how the primitive instincts that allow us to dream of a better life are in conflict with the expectations set on us by society. He reveals the self-imposed psychological constraints that prevent corrective action and equips the audience with the mental framework that is necessary to pursue and achieve a life of happiness and fulfillment.

Attendees will leave feeling like a switch has been flipped in their brain. They will be empowered to achieve not just motivated to attempt. They will:

  1. Understand how the roles and expectations set for them by society have undermined their individualism and their purpose.
  2. Be able to recognize the self–imposed psychological barriers that stand between them and the life they once envisioned for themselves.
  3. Understand how they have been complicit in the restraint of their own progress.
  4. Be armed with four simple guidelines that eliminate internal and external obstructions and empower them to lead the life of their dreams.

Simple and Smart Ways to Grow Your Business

The complexity of today’s business landscape often causes new and even seasoned entrepreneurs to lose focus on what matters most.  Ironically, we are tricked by the constant innovation that is all around us. As a result we risk spending more time optimizing our operations than innovating ways to grow.

You cannot save your way to profitability…in time or money.  In the end, the inevitability of rising operational costs requires sustained revenue growth. That is how we earn

In this painfully honest Keynote, Tra filters through thousands of ‘business solutions’ and mobile and virtual tools and apps to reveal how so many of us are deceived by efficiencies that have little to no effect on the growth of our business.

Audience members will leave with:

  1. A deeper understanding of how to measure what does and does not grow their business.
  2. The ability to honestly access the results of their current tools and efforts.
  3. A clear understanding of how every single metric in business development can be bucketed into two categories.
  4. The two fundamental questions of business growth that they should ask themselves prior to taking any action within the organization.
