Known for his passion, visionary leadership, and steadfast determination to change the way organizations operate, he helps organizations continuously adapt and win in complex environments. His hands-on approach to leadership and compelling vision for how businesses should be run leave audiences inspired to revamp their own management strategies and operating systems. In a presentation that is fast and engaging, he shows that the private sector can learn a great deal from the military’s experiences.

Katherine Bailey

Katherine Bailey is a Senior Facilitator at The Energy Project, a company that helps organizations better meet the needs of their employees so they are freed, fueled and inspired to bring the best of themselves to work. With over 20 years of experience in the field, Katherine’s expertise includes leadership and staff development, organizational culture change, and assessment. She helps organizations to perform at the highest level even in the face of chronic stress, adversity, and trauma. Attendees of this session will take The Energy Audit™ to get a sense of how effectively they are currently managing their energy across four dimensions: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Then, they will learn about physical energy as the foundation of all energy, and the need to balance intense focus with deep renewal. Ultimately, they will understand the key paradigm shift: from thinking of themselves as marathoners to becoming sprinters, working in short, intense periods followed by recovery. Katherine will also head up the breakout session during Education Forum IV with a discussion of solutions and review of one’s personal Energy Audit score. To learn more about The Energy Project, read The Way We Are Working, Isn’t Working, by Energy Project founder Tony Schwartz.
