Stoic Leadership with Peter McKenzie

June 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm EDT


Stoic philosophy provides a clear and proven methodology for both new and experienced leaders to reach these aspirations.

This presentation is based on stories and learnings taken from ancient and modern stoics; from the most powerful emperor in the ancient world, to an NFL coach who has won 5 Super Bowls and the world’s best Olympian.

Leadership development is a $366 billion-dollar global business. Yet workplace stress is at an all-time high with 70% of workers disengaged. The current model isn´t working. We face a leadership crisis.

A group of the world’s most influential and successful leaders, from Nelson Mandela to Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, have turned to a philosophy set down two millennia ago by thinkers in Athens and Rome called Stoicism.

How would you like to be seen as a leader?
Strong and decisive, yet fair and considerate?
Action orientated yet willing to take criticism and admit mistakes?
Putting the good of the group over individual success?
Imagine what could be achieved if your team focused on the right things in a fear-free and blame-free culture, where innovation and productivity thrived, rather than wasting time complaining or gossiping in a stagnant environment?

This action-packed and practical presentation will challenge participants to apply stoic methods to:

Evaluate their own leadership style and values.
Reduce stress and increase focus, both as a leader and as a team.
Create a culture where respect, collaboration and ethical behaviour increase creativity and long-term success.
