Leadership Speakers

It is true that there is a vast difference between a “boss” and a true leader. In the past decade alone our workforce has shifted in countless ways, one of which is what we look for in a leader. While companies previously focused on profits alone, we now see more and more organizations taking workplace culture into account on top of hitting numbers.

Leaders nowadays must be able to inspire their teams, connect with individuals, and embody the values they preach. A true leader will do all of the above while shattering quotas, while a boss can reach goals but they may have a hard time with employee retention and morale. The traits of a great leader can be learned and we have gathered the best Leadership Keynote Speakers around to share their insights and transform anyone into a leader people want to follow.

Our Leadership Keynote Speakers reach across industries to provide advice and learnings that will make your leadership versatile and flexible enough to apply your new knowledge to any company. They have compiled best practices, data from studies spanning years, and personal experiences to bring you exactly what you and your team need to grow into the leaders you were always meant to be.

One form of leaders you can explore are the men and women who lead teams in the Navy, Marines, and Army, on special missions, and into life-threatening situations—people like Vernice “Fly Girl” Armour who is America's first Black female combat pilot, or former Commander of USS Benfold Mike Abrashoff. Their time behind enemy lines guiding their teammates into danger and out to safety has given them valuable insights into leading under immense pressure. They can help you create a strong voice people will trust, team morale that you can rely on, and reliant decision-making in times of stress.

Or maybe you prefer learning about leadership through a sports lens. Bring someone like Dr. Thom Mayer, Medical Director for the National Football League Players Association and Disaster Leadership Expert to your next event to understand how a team’s integrity is built upon each individual and the leaders who uphold their values. And there’s no one to speak on leading a championship culture like Jennifer Azzi, Olympic Gold Medalist, and Women’s Basketball Hall of Famer.

For those of you more data-oriented, turn to a speaker to explain the science behind great leaders and powerful cultures. Behavioral Scientist Ashely Whillans can work one on one with your team to address key behaviors that lead to greater success. Rasmus Ankersen, a High-Performance Anthropologist, uses the study of culture to pinpoint the attributes that make a great leader and shares those insights with audiences around the world.

Let Executive Speakers Bureau share our expertise in finding you the perfect Leadership Keynote Speakers for your next meeting. No matter what speaks to you and your team, we have a speaker that says it best. Learn how to go from boss to leader with one of our expert Leadership Keynote Speakers.
