Great leaders, like Jane Goodall, Nelson Mandela, and Gandhi, derived their power in part from taking a stand — not having a fixed position or point of view. Although from the outside they can sometimes look similar, the difference is that a fixed position forces us to take sides and argue for or against something, while taking a stand opens up new visions and possibilities and reduces defensiveness in others.
Taking a stand is a way of living and being that strengthens our capacity to make a difference in our work and personal lives — and we don’t need to be a Goodall or Gandhi. We all have a stand inside of us waiting to be expressed, and, when we are in touch with that place, we become more fully ourselves.
In this inspiring keynote, Lynne Twist shares the astounding results of the stands taken by everyday heroes and shows the audience how they can use the power of taking a stand to gain access to previously unknown inner and outer resources. This presentation will:
- Empower you to move to a new level of leadership — in your community, job, company or industry.
- Enable you to realize your vision.
- Support you in accomplishing real change and lasting solutions.
