1:00 - 1:45 | Change with Confidence

In this session, Phil will discuss why confidence is the most important trait that leaders can draw upon when leading change. Confidence is tested the most when leaders can’t answer change-related questions based on their operational experience. They either stall making a decision or make a quick one based on insufficient information. Both choices slow progress and increase risk of failure. Phil will share the five most important questions that predict the success of a change initiative. He also will demonstrate how leaders can build their confidence by understanding these questions and use practical approaches to answer them well.

Ryan has been playing on teams since the age of 4. From amateur sport to the highest level, including 17 seasons playing and coaching in the NHL, and now as President of a professional hockey team, he has observed what does and doesn't work. Ryan will share with you the habits and mindset that drive people to be their BEST; the skills and techniques that help coaches lead their teams to success; and the environment that top teams create to help them win. During our time together we will explore how great leaders lead, why teams win, and what gives top performers in any sport or business a massive advantage. I look forward to showing you my Stanley Cup ring, and personalizing my latest book for you on Oct 7th!
