HDI Toronto Annual Conference and Expo, Toronto, Canada


I had the privilege to speak at the annual HDI roadshow event for the Toronto chapter of HDI. The topic was High-Performance Leadership. I very much enjoyed walking around the downtown area. Last time I was in Canada, I stayed in the suburbs.

I did get to take in a baseball game while I was there.

Topic Overview

High Impact Leadership (Keynote)

Why do some IT teams flourish, consistently exceeding goals, and others flounder, often falling short of the projected expectations? The teams use the same tools, draw from the same employee pool, deploy the same processes, and serve the same customers, yet some teams consistently produce lower employee turnover and higher customer value. Why?

All too often in our industry, we are given tools to ‘manage’ our staff, yet very little training is offered to help us ‘lead’ our staff. Whatever your type of environment, this session will be informative, entertaining and motivating. It is time for you to look at how you lead, tap into your core values and strengths and lead your team and your organization to a higher level of performance and success. The session covers five fundamental concepts of high impact leadership:

  • Know your own voice
  • Inspire a shared vision
  • Challenge the process
  • Empower others to act
  • Encourage the heart

This presentation is a highly interactive session that will challenge your beliefs and tap into your inner strengths.
