Learn more about Exception to the Rule: The Surprising Science of Character-Based Culture, Engagement, and Performance:
The antidote to navigating turbulent times isn’t more rules. It is timeless virtue that creates sustainable value.
Thoughtful leaders are keenly aware of the enormous challenge they face to drive high performance in a world that continues to ratchet up pressure and uncertainty. This presentation will link ancient wisdom with contemporary science on high performance, teamwork, and engagement. Building an organizational culture based on classical virtues―of trust, compassion, courage, justice, wisdom, temperance and hope―is both strategically smart and a better way to live.
Rea will walk you through the steps of helping everyone in your organization focus on character defined by virtue. The word virtue means excellence, which is why each one is essential to help people perform at a high level despite uncertainty and pressure. Under character-based leadership, teams work better together, creativity flourishes and engagement increases.
As virtue proves its value, the culture you have can evolve into the culture you need.
