    Mike Manazir believes that the most influential leaders know how to establish a human connection, based on the heart, with those they lead. The true nature of “servant leadership” is to throw out any title you have and not act like “The Boss”. Mike Manazir served 36 years in the US Navy, ultimately retiring in July 2017 as a two-star Admiral. Mike commanded units of 350 people up to 10,000 people and is now a Vice President with a Fortune 100 Aerospace and Defense Company. Mike will discuss how his leadership philosophy served him well in the military, business, and non-profit boards.

    In the Navy, Mike was a naval aviator trained in the F-14 and F-18 aircraft with multiple deployments on US Navy aircraft carriers. Mike commanded the USS NIMITZ (CVN-68).

    Hypothesis: High performance catalyzes when a leader, acting from the heart, connects with teammates.

    Mike will also describe the power of storytelling and the importance of the narrative to your business. Mike relates that one of the two most important people on a high-performing staff is the communicator - to help the leader tell the right stories. Hint: the other most important person is the lawyer!

    Our program on October 28th will focus on how to lead others by ensuring they feel valued and are part of something bigger than themselves. 

    Key takeaways:

    • Lead from your heart, without a title.
    • The value of establishing trust as the foundation of your team’s performance.
    • How to communicate with passion and vision.
    • The power of listening (with a secret tip).
    • The impact of empathy.
    • Why learning people’s names is so important.
