Billy Riggs PMA

How to Become a Born Leader (Advanced leadership training for board members.)

(45 minutes to a full day)

Climb the “Leadership Pyramid” through 6 distinct stages!

Bosses are a dime a dozen; leaders are priceless. Faculty and staff obey mere bosses only because they fear they will be rendered more unhappy if they disobey than if they obey. Morale suffers, key people depart and productivity sags. But a genuine leader inspires team members to want to do their work. They follow true leaders out of respect and admiration. They work out of a sense of shared ownership of goals and passion for the fulfillment of their noble mission. 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. Perfect for School Board Inspiration/Training or Superintendent Associations. 45-90 minute keynote, or half-day or full-day workshop.
