Tony La Russa details the keys to his successful leadership—before, after and especially during the game—which can be applied at every level to help your team realize new heights of professional performance. Having inspired extreme loyalty from his players, he reveals the seldom-heard stories of why believing in each player’s ability, even when others did not, provided the platform for them to obtain amazing come-from-behind victories. La Russa has proven that studying the facts relevant to your business allows you to trust your instincts and is a powerful strategy that can lead to great achievement.

We are living in an unprecedented political climate, one rife with negative rhetoric, “alternative facts,” and chaotic communication.

In such a divided political environment, Mitch Landrieu, former mayor of New Orleans, brings problem-solving and the voice of reason to an ideologically bent Washington.

A strong proponent of reaching across the aisle, Landrieu discusses finding common ground on complex issues such as infrastructure, tax reform, immigration, and access to healthcare. 

Drawing from his firsthand experience as a two-term mayor and a lieutenant governor who turned a descending city into a prosperous one, Landrieu can be paired with a Republican to speak on the following topics as they pertain to governing in a Trump era:

  • Growth potential of cities

  • Insight into race relations

  • Criminal justice system

  • Ethical leadership        

  • Climate change

  • Public finance

  • Infrastructure

Redemption can come from the most unlikely of places.

Under the impactful leadership of Mitch Landrieu, New Orleans has become one of the nation’s best comeback stories.  In the wake of one of the most destructive hurricanes, Landrieu supplied hope to a devastated city.

Resurrecting and restructuring the city meant reorganizing the budget and overhauling the entire government - from education, to healthcare, to the criminal justice system.

During Landrieu’s tenure as mayor, New Orleans morphed its public school system into a 100 percent charter school model, reimagined its public housing model, and made healthcare more accessible to all.

The New Orleans Police Department experienced sweeping reforms, and the implementation of NOLA for Life comprehensively reduced the murder rate in the city by nearly 20 percent.

Because of the policies and structures put in place by former mayor Mitch Landrieu, New Orleans thrives with a growing and diversifying economy.

In this inspiring presentation, Landrieu reveals to audiences how the people of NOLA had the ability to see beauty even when everything was lost after Hurricane Katrina.

As lieutenant governor of Louisiana, Mitch Landrieu led the state through Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

With a resume that includes leading the city and state through Hurricanes Rita, Gustav, Ike, and Isaac, the BP oil spill, and a national recession, Landrieu knows what it takes to rebound from crises.

When he was sworn in as the 61st Mayor of New Orleans in May 2010, the recovery from Hurricane Katrina had stalled, the city teetered on bankruptcy and the New Orleans Police Department was under federal investigation.

Under Landrieu, New Orleans has become one of America’s great comeback stories.

By making public safety a top priority, Landrieu reformed the police department and implemented the cutting-edge murder-reduction strategy, NOLA for Life, which led to a nearly 20 percent decrease in the city’s murder rate.

He kick-started the recovery by fast-tracking over 100 projects and securing billions in federal funding for schools, hospitals, parks and recreation and critical infrastructure.

He brought sound fiscal management, balanced budgets and ethical contracting to City Hall, leading to the city’s highest-ever credit rating and over $8 billion in private development.

Landrieu believes government alone is not enough to repair the economy and that partnering with local business leaders paves the path to prosperity.  He brought this idea to life with the formation of New Orleans Business Alliance (NOLABA), the first public-private partnership of its kind in the city, and the Network for Economic Opportunity.  These organizations devote themselves to repositioning New Orleans as a hub for culture and commerce, lifting up small businesses, and connecting disadvantaged job seekers to opportunities in the workforce.  Since their inception, these organizations have helped to create 20,000 new jobs and opened more than 140 new businesses.

In this presentation, Landrieu reveals how his post-disaster leadership skills and business innovation insights helped pull his city through crisis and become more resilient. With his Southern wit and charm, he shares with audiences:

  • How clear command, control and communication can get you through any crisis
  • How his philosophy of “facilitate, link and leverage” brings people together to move forward
  • How public-private partnerships pave the path to prosperity
  • Why ethical leadership is good for business
  • Why the future of America runs through cities

 

In the last decade, Coach Jim Larranaga has led two different programs from having no notoriety to being dominant contenders on the national scene. Most recently, Larranaga  reinvigorated the University of Miami Hurricanes program from irrelevance to being ranked number two in the country and winning their first ACC title in school history—an accomplishment that earned Larranaga both AP and Naismith Coach of the Year honors. From the premise that “underdogs can beat the big dog,” Larranaga leads his team with a clear and well-defined plan that begins with recruitment and focuses on developing young talent.

Audiences will learn how to:

  • Use an underdog status to their advantage
  • Compete without the same resources the big dogs have
  • Transform the underdog status into a winning mantra

Finding talented, hardworking employees who will uphold the standards of your company is difficult. Coach Larranaga shares his tried-and-true methods for recruiting players and assistant coaches and for creating an environment that keeps them on the job. Larranaga tells audiences about his 8 C’s—character, competitiveness, competence, consistency, cohesiveness, commitment, communication and confidence—which are the foundation for selecting a winning staff and team and developing a championship-caliber program. Audiences will learn:

  • How to develop a program that will elevate their organization’s performance to the highest level
  • Where to find talented employees
  • How to build a winning, dedicated staff

A team that can relax and have fun together is a winning team, Larranaga explains to audiences, describing the scene just before the Final Four competition when his players skipped routine drills to spend time with family and fans. Sharing his four tenets of commitment—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual—he illustrates how unconditional dedication produces exceptional results in athletics and in life. Larranaga shares:

  • His winning formula for creating a team that works together on the court and supports each other on the sidelines
  • How to create an environment that fosters team growth while promoting individual development
  • How to push players to their limits without wearing them down emotionally and spiritually

As the digital revolution marches on, the workforce of the future begins to look nothing like it has looked in the past or even in the present. What are the macro and micro forces that businesses will need to face and understand to prepare a workforce ready to meet the demands of an every changing world? How will trends around AI, immigration, migration, diversity and leadership effect business and what do we need to know and do to meet those challenges?

Audiences will gain from Lauren’s insight on:

  • The global talent pool has profoundly changed and the change is permanent
  • Most organizations are led in ways that are no longer effective
  • To lead across gender, generation and culture leaders much find ways to connect and inspire
  • How to do that may just be the most pressing leadership issue of our time

We all know the data – women are the majority of the population, the majority of the electorate and the majority of the college graduates in virtually every field and yet in many ways true equality for American Women remains elusive. For years we’ve been hearing about the barriers women face but less about the solutions that women themselves have the power to influence. For the future to be female and equal, women will need to do more than Lean In at work. They will need to step forward and advocate for themselves and each other in new and important ways. While women are as diverse as the nation itself, there are many issues where woman across the spectrum agree. If we can seize the opportunities, large and small, to ensure the full equality of American women, the future holds limitless possibilities.

As one of the most diverse nations on earth, the United States has a unique potential to be the most innovative and how will we live together peacefully and productively? Can we find a way to make our multifaceted diversity an asset, economically and socially or will it continue to be our deepest and most painful source of conflict? Crossing The Thinnest Line argues passionately and persuasively for the possibility, power, purpose and payoff of embracing difference. The stakes for the conversation are high and getting higher. Already, 89% of the world's educated population is either female or minority. In less than a generation, the US will become minority majority. The world economy is global and interconnected. Embracing diversity has never been more imperative. With compelling data and powerful, personal stories, Lauren Leader-Chivee looks at challenges and solutions to immigration, education, business, media and politics and inspires us to rise to the challenge.
