Dr. Bryan Deptula Speaking Topics

  • YOUR LEADERS SUCK (BUT IT’S NOT THEIR FAULT)

    Leaders suck! Everyone knows it. Vistage research identified Leader Development as a critical problem and opportunity for executives that need immediate attention and education. In an age when there is an ever-escalating war for talent, it has never been more critical in the history of business to train leaders.

    Leader Development is a strategic investment. Executives need to know how to calculate and maximize ROI on leader development programs to make investments decisions that drive profitability.

    Most managers weren’t born knowing how to lead, who leaders are, and what leaders really do. But it’s not their fault. Your organization should NOT suffer while sucky leaders learn by trial and error and kill your company from the inside. There are proven low• risk, high-reward ways to make executives and managers better leaders.

  • LEADERS ARE BORN... TO BE MADE

    Ground breaking keynote & workshop based on Dr. Bryan Deptula’s TED Talk. Leaders are born, and they are made. Leader Genes, nurture, and motivation to lead influence whether a person will be a leader. Learn 3 pillars of becoming a leader:

    • BEING • your leader identity and brand

    • KNOWING -how to lead and what motivates you to lead

    • DOING • skills to practice leading

    When I speak at a conference or company retreats, without fail, no matter the audience, conference or company, executives or front-line employees…THE ONE QUESTION PEOPLE ALWAYS ASK:

    ARE LEADERS BORN OR MADE?

    This question sparks contentious debates. Let’s debunk the myth that leaders are born, not made. There is an answer, and you need to know fact from fiction.

  • MILLION DOLLAR LIFE CHANGING DECISIONS: HOW TO PICK YOUR PIVOT POINTS

    This is a highly emotional keynote that reveals how I made it from section 8 poverty, through near death, gave up $1M to get an MBA and PhD, climbed the Ivory Tower, to become an Author and Entrepreneur. Pivot points are moments in your life where everything you have done, are doing, and desire to do in the future intersect at one point in time, causing you to decide who you are and who you want to be. I share the scariest moment of my life, when I pivoted and sacrificed everything to become my future best self.

    During your life you will face pivot points when you need to make critical decisions that determine the course of your life. You need to pivot away from who you are to become your future best self. Your future best self is a to be discovered amazing version of your current self; an ideal self that you have not yet become. Join me in seeking a constant evolution of the self, an ever present search for self-improvement.
