Leadership Lessons from Legends

Newton famously said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” One of the most effective ways to develop leadership is to borrow lessons from the best. This memorable program will explore several lessons including the speaking secrets of Churchill, the conviction and clarity of Mother Teresa, the wisdom of Lincoln, the mentoring of John Wooden, the courage of Amelia Earhart, the drive of Michael Jordan, the guts and work ethic of Ray Kroc, and the creativity of Marie Curie. If you incorporate just one of these lessons into your personal professional development, your leadership will never be the same!

    Presenter Bio: 
    Author, Leadership Development Expert 20 years. 
    A traumatic car accident left Jonathan Fanning hanging from a bridge, 106 feet above the ground. As a result, he committed to pursuing more important questions. “Who are you BECOMING?” and “Who are you helping others to BECOME?” became central to every aspect of his life. Now an author to three books, and best speaker at a 2016 TED conference, Jonathan has been coaching top leaders–from Fortune 500 executives to sole proprietors–for over 15 years. As a sought after global keynote speaker, Jonathan inspires and challenges his audiences to ask themselves critical questions. The answers create a roadmap to greater value in their lives and careers. He has also built several successful businesses, including a national children’s fitness franchise and Entrepreneur Adventure, helping young people experience business start-up and ownership. Jonathan lives in NY with his amazing wife, Dominika, and two angelic little girls, Ella and Maya.
