The Perfect Time to Stop Leading & Start Building a Leadership Culture

Now is the perfect time to make the change. Can you pass the 24-hour-test? A mentor asked me that over and over and over again… until my answer was finally yes. Can you take a long weekend without checking in? Here’s the real question: Are you leading? Or Building a Leadership Culture? They’re not even close to the same thing! If you’re ready to build a leadership culture, your team needs to be able to answer three questions. When you discover the secrets to building a leadership culture, it will affect every aspect of your life. Based on Jonathan’s best-selling book, Who are you BECOMING?, participants will discover 3 secrets that the greatest leadership cultures have in common and a simple formula for raising your organization’s leadership lid.  A favorite of audiences across the country, Jonathan shares “The Simplest and Most Effective Leadership Development Plan”, borrowing powerful and practical lessons from the greatest people developers in all walks of life.
