Embrace it or ignore it, but the evidence of change is all around us. From smartphones to Starbucks and urbanization to Uber, tomorrow's leaders must place as high a priority (if not higher) on people and performance as they do on process and procedure if they want to succeed for the long haul.

So how do you prepare for the new normal of constant change?

As the former head of corporate communications and media relations for Sony, Universal, and Turner Broadcasting, Libby Gill was instrumental in creating and communicating culture change. Thriving in a challenging industry where competition and chaos were the norm, Libby shares provocative leadership strategies and powerful personal stories to help your group connect the dots between individual accountability and organizational change.

Her clients include Capital One, Cisco, Disney-ABC, EY, Genentech, GoDaddy, Intel, Kellogg’s, Microsoft, PayPal, Warner Bros., Wells Fargo, and many more. 

In her high-energy interactive presentations, Libby shares timely concepts and relevant takeaways to help your group:

  • Master the 3 P's of Change Leadership: radical purpose, action pillars, and leadership personality
  • Reframe leadership with a future focus strategy where employees' Function Fluidity will become the new corporate currency
  • Infuse your team with vision and vitality by discovering the science-based benefits of Hope Theory
