Are you a boss, manager or leader? What is the difference? How can YOU become your most effective through maximizing your role? In this speech, I show the audience the difference between a boss, a manager and a leader and help each attendee determine which type THEY are. It might not be the answer you think.

Social Media for “Are You A Boss, Manager or Leader?”
One of my favorite things to do before and after a speech is interact with those attendees who are talking about what I had to say. A good speech should inspire some good conversation, and this one was no exception! Some really great conversation on Twitter surrounded this event.
