THE 21st CENTURY LEADER

In a global landscape characterized by constant change, today’s business leader is obligated to leverage existing demands with a greater commitment to professional development or risk becoming ineffective, obsolete and eventually replaced.

Dr. Rick Rigsby’s brilliantly crafted speech is a prerequisite for today’s revolutionary business environment. Dr. Rick challenges leaders to excel at enhancing skill sets required by a new generation of employees. Rick argues that dynamic and effective leadership today must expand its focus to include technological expansion, knowledge acquisition, diverse demographics and increased globalization.

Dr. Rigsby will empower you to discover how a leader’s journey to superior performance is reserved for the leader who is intentional, strategic and above all, willing to grow!



MAKING AN IMPACT

We live in an era of astonishing technology, instant information and rampant social networking. Despite the epidemic advances that ushered in a new millennium, cultural critics argue that society has never been more shallow in communication and more superficial in appearance. In fact, Dr. Rigsby argues that for many organizations, appearance- or what he refers to as impression- has become the new corporate wardrobe.

We invite you to rediscover what is really important and meaningful- not only in your professional career but in your personal life as well. Join Dr. Rigsby as he shares the wisdom of past generations- wisdom that will inspire, motivate and empower you to make an impact rather than an impression!

 

THE ESSENCE OF GREATNESS

It's been said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same action and expecting a different result. Does this definition describe your work performance? Your leadership? Your life? Are you tired of functioning at the same level? Have you wondered why others are enjoying great success while you are just trying to make it through the day?

Dr. Rick Rigsby suggests that the key to greater effectiveness is closer than you might think! In a powerfully motivating presentation, Rick explores the attitudes and tendencies of great people and how they approach work and leisure. Immediately, you'll be motivated to make changes and adjustments that will elevate you to a superior level of performance. Discover the Essence of Greatness . . . and eliminate the insanity!

 

MASTERING THE BASICS

Innovative technology requires understanding the relationship between competitive advantage and mastering the basics.  Organizational success depends on the effective execution of core competencies.  Ask any high achiever and they’ll tell you that meticulous attention to detail is the difference between good and great.

Dr. Rick Rigsby’s father — a third-grade dropout and the wisest man he ever encountered — convinced Rick that “the basics” must never be relegated to the basement of the professional portfolio. Cultures are transformed when individuals commit to routine greatness!

Join Rick as he delivers a captivating speech designed to ignite your imagination and awaken your creativity.  Prepare to discover the extraordinary by Mastering the Ordinary!
