Reaching one’s true and desired potential is something everyone strives to accomplish. The hardest steps to take to reach it, are the first. Once you get going, the easier it is to stick with it and keep working. Some just need that initial push and a nudge in the right direction.
Getting motivated and staying motivated can be difficult, but these three speeches can always be a source of motivation. Worldwide Speakers Group thought leaders, Carly Fiorina, Nancy Frates, and DeMaurice Smith, have had careers that dreams are made of. They have worked tirelessly to achieve their goals and are now using their stories and experiences to help others do the same.
Solving problems, effectively empowering employees, and driving results are not easy tasks, but they are required of leaders. As CEO of the world’s first $100 billion information technology company, Carly Fiorina is all too familiar with the complex, difficult path of leadership – and the far-reaching strategic decisions that must be made with finesses and fortitude. She has grappled with many of these same tensions and faced these same challenges.
A passionate leader who made tough choices to grow her organizations, Carly delivers a powerful, pragmatic presentation on how leaders can be clear-eyed about their current state, optimistic about their future, and deliberate about getting the results they want. Carly began her business career as a secretary and ultimately became the first woman to lead a FORTUNE 50 company, as the CEO of Hewlett-Packard. She made this journey by solving the problems in front of her and unlocking the potential of those around her. She passionately believes that leaders are made, not born, and that leadership potential exists at every level of every organization. “Anyone can lead, at any time, from anywhere. Leadership is not about title, position, or power. It is about making a positive difference.”
Upon her son’s ALS diagnosis, Nancy Frates was presented with an unacceptable prognosis and the absence of any treatment for his disease. Nancy takes the audience on her family’s tragic yet beautiful journey, entwined with the origins of the historic ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Her delivery is enhanced with a clarity and passion that only a mother can express while inspiring audiences to account for their own outlook on their life’s challenges.
As the unanimous choice when elected as the Executive Director of the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), DeMaurice Smith has been an unprecedented and influential leader in the NFL. And with his past experience in litigation and ten collective years with the U.S. Attorney’s office and the Department of Justice, Smith is equipped with both the experience and mastery of rising to the occasion.
As with the NFL, Smith discusses the relation between a successful branding strategy and the inspiration within its team members. He delves into the process of creating and managing a truly innovative and successful brand. Audiences will walk away with strategies and key principles of brand management and effective leadership skills that will help them shatter the norm, see challenges versus roadblocks, and inspire them to overcome adversity and succeed.
