“Being a great leader requires you to challenge the status quo, anticipate the future and be confident enough to step outside of your comfort zone to inspire and engage those around you. It means you live with a purpose and take the time to celebrate the successes along the way.” — Leon Goren, CEO and Owner, Presidents of Enterprising Organizations (PEO)
In 2018, our theme is “Resilience. Discovering the opportunities in the face of adversity“. When life throws you and/or your organization a curveball – what happens? With the increasing global risk of economic and political disruption, the speed of technology advancement, the tightening of the employment landscape in the short term, and normal complexity of challenges faced in businesses – are you a leader prepared to embrace uncertainty and use adversity to tackle those challenges and succeed? The 2018 PEO Leadership Conference will build on the 2017 theme of FEARLESS with 2018’s theme: RESILIENCE.
Leaders are often categorized into A, B, and C performers. In the book ‘Type R: Transformative Resilience for Thriving in a Turbulent World‘, the term “R Leader” is used as the RESILIENT leader. The “R Leader” is capable of adapting well to volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity and adversity. This is a leader who is able to THRIVE – learning to grow, and not crumble through adversity.
In November 2018, we will assemble a number of global thought leaders who will share their insights on the importance of resiliency today and what it requires to become a resilient leader. We’ll examine how to create resilient organizations where employees are able to react quickly and efficiently to change and perceive experiences constructively, expand their decision-making boundaries, develop the ability to create on the spot solutions and develop tolerance for uncertainty.
Our goal this year, is to leave you with new perspectives on the world, help you reflect on your purpose, and reinforce the importance of decisiveness, emotional intelligence, physical energy and a supportive community.
