Speaking Topics in Demand

Had a blast speaking this week at two Athena awards events (chambers of commerce recognizing a great female leader).  The courage of women leading is fascinating to me.  Because I am the (slightly) above average man behind a great woman – who is work with a majority of male leaders – I have a curious vantage point on men and women leading.  Audiences seem to love it.  I’d love to speak to men too, because we are also leading in a whole new world – at home – and need to talk about it more.  Thoughts?  Opportunities?

The other speech that has been very popular lately is “leading through sustained crisis.” We know a lot about that in Michigan and in manufacturing.  But dramatic changes are affecting schools, the recording business, and how about the impact on newspapers!!!  This new circumstance requires a different kind of leadership.
