Learn to Lead: Guaranteed to Succeed
Richard J. Bryan became the reluctant CEO of his family’s high-profile business at the ripe and “not-so-ready” age of 28. He faced huge challenges and made some impressive mistakes along the way. Now, he’d like to share highlights from his journey to help you.
As a leadership keynote speaker, Richard goes beyond theory, to outline the 7 reality-tested leadership lessons he learned along the road to becoming a respected leader. Richard will share excerpts from his no-nonsense, leadership book Being Frank, to help you smooth out some of the bumps along your road to greatness.
Leadership Lesson #1: Know Your Role
Focus on what only you can and should be doing as a leader.
Leadership Lesson #2: Hire People Smarter Than You
Place the right people in the right role and then…get out of their way.
Leadership Lesson #3: Stay Coachable
True leaders know that asking for help is never a sign of weakness.
“RICHARD’S KEYNOTE PRESENTATION WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CONFERENCE. IT WAS THOUGHT PROVOKING AND ENTERTAINING WITH SOME GREAT STORIES TOO! IT REALLY MADE ME SEE HOW I COULD BE A BETTER LEADER BY APPLYING HIS SIMPLE LEADERSHIP STRATEGIES IN MY OWN BUSINESS AND PERSONAL LIFE.”
“I ENJOY WORKING WITH RICHARD BECAUSE HE HAS SUCH A COMPELLING PERSONAL STORY. HIS LEADERSHIP LESSONS ARE TRULY HARD-EARNED AND I THINK THAT IS WHAT MAKES HIS MESSAGE SO POWERFUL FOR OTHER LEADERS.”
“During his presentation, Richard facilitated round-table discussions to assure that our attending dealer-CEOs were more likely to go home and implement the concepts he presented. He used well researched examples and his call to action was right on the mark. In short, Richard was highly effective and I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
