PROGRAM INFORMATION

HOW TO BECOME A BORN LEADER. (CLIMB THE LEADERSHIP PYRAMID THROUGH 6 DISTINCT STAGES.)

Bosses are a dime a dozen; leaders are priceless. Employees obey bosses only because they fear they will be rendered more miserable if they disobey than if they obey. Morale suffers and productivity sags. But a genuine leader inspires team members to want to do their work. Employees follow true leaders out of respect and admiration. They work out of a sense of shared ownership of goals. Learn the keys to climbing the “Leadership Pyramid” through six distinct stages (while laughing through an entertaining and fun program) and begin the rewarding journey from mere boss to leader! This program becomes even more fun and entertaining when combined (at no additional charge) with Billy Riggs’ magic and comedy!
