MORNING KEYNOTES

Leading at 90 Below Zero:
Keeping Great Employees Focused, Fired Up and Engaged
with Antarctic Mike

In August of 1914, Ernest Shackleton led a group of 27 men on the greatest journey ever undertaken by mankind when he launched the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Their mission was to cross the entire Antarctic continent on foot, a feat no one had ever dared or done. They became stranded, shipwrecked and fought for their lives in the middle of the harshest conditions on earth; amazingly, all 27 men returned home safely, due in part to Schackleton’s great leadership.

Mike will showcase the principles and drivers that enabled Shackleton and his men to not only survive, but thrive under terrible conditions of adversity, sudden and unexpected change and many other factors that threatened their success.

In today’s world, businesses face similar conditions as those in the Antarctic 100 years ago such as:

– Dealing with obstacles beyond your control
– Sudden and unexpected change
– Creating teams and cultures that work well under pressure
– Leading and engaging people while facing difficult and challenging assignments

Discover how to:

 Engage employees in higher levels of work and productivity
– Resolve conflict in a healthy manner
– Strengthen employees self confidence and sense of discipline
– Enable people to leverage their talents to their full potential in their respective roles in the organisation
– Build and maintain a strong sales force

The Leadership Seven 
with Brad Waldron

Effective individuals win two victories in life: a Private Victory when they learn self-mastery and self-discipline, and a Public Victory when they build deep and enduring relationships with others. As they practice the Leadership 7, they move from being dependent on others to independence and finally to interdependence, where they reap the rewards of superb cooperation and collaboration.

Discover The Power of the Leadership 7

Leadership 001: You are in charge of you
Principle: I am free to choose and am responsible for my choices.

Leadership 002: Decide on what matters most
Principle: A purpose built life be your leadership compass

Leadership 003: Build extraordinary execution skills
Principle: Effectiveness requires the integrity to act on your priorities.

Leadership 004: Everyone at the party gets a balloon 
Principle: Effective, long-term relationships require mutual respect and mutual benefit.  

Leadership 005: Listen with the intent to understand
Principle: To communicate effectively, we must first understand each other, express your message with fierce conversations.

Leadership 006: Build your dream team
Principle: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Leadership 007: Live, learn, love and leave a legacy 
Principle: To maintain and increase effectiveness, we must renew ourselves in body, heart, mind, and spirit.
