Example Keynote #1

Leading in a Time of Global Complexity

Topic: Leadership, Global Complexity, Professional Development

Perfect for: Global Conferences, Coaching Events, Corporate Meetings

At this time in history, there is a great urgency for each one of us to step more boldly into a new leadership role and develop the competencies needed to better navigate the complexity of our times.

Leaders develop a unique way of observing their organization and its relationship to the world. Based on this view, leaders and the people within the organizations they lead will see only a limited set of possible actions and ways of doing things and may become blind to other ways of seeing and taking action. 

The innovation needed to deal with the complexity of our times requires a way of leading that both illuminates those blind spots and inaugurates a new emotional space to deal with them.

This leader is one who:

  • Integrates rather than separates
  • Is strategic & courageous
  • Prioritizes relationships
  • Sees the whole and not just the parts
  • Has developed greater personal awareness
  • Understands the interconnectedness of life

Join Julio Olalla, one of the originators of ontological coaching, an internationally-renowned speaker, educator, and master certified coach, for a provocative conversation on the new leadership skills required in the face of increasing today’s complexity.

Length: 1-3 hours

Example Keynote #2

Emotions that Shape You as a Leader

Topic: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence

Perfect for: Global Conferences, Coaching Events, Corporate Meetings

Emotions are not just about how we feel. Emotions predispose us to take certain kinds of action. They fundamentally alter our capacity for action. This understanding is crucial to leadership, both in terms of understanding how to work with your own emotions and how to work with the emotions of the people with whom you engage, collaborate, manage, and lead. 

Research shows us that throughout history and across cultures, there are fundamental emotions that consistently recur in all of us. These emotions shape us, impact our ability to lead others, and influence the results we ultimately achieve in our personal and professional lives. 

In this highly-engaging and thought-provoking keynote led by Julio Olalla, you will learn:

  • Why emotions matter in life and leadership
  • What core emotions shape you and recur in all of us
  • What are some basic emotional competencies

Length 1-3 hours
