“Leadership Is A Marathon: How To Stay Motivated As A Leader”

Matt Jones

Keynote Motivational Speaker and Author

Matt Jones, went from being a three-time cancer conqueror, to relearning how to walk, to surviving a bone marrow transplant, to completing seven marathons on seven continents and yes that includes Antarctica!

In a recent survey 75% of respondents said their company is chronically short of leadership talent (War of Talent).  Being an effective leader like a marathon is an endurance event.  Matt’s talk, “Leadership is a Marathon” provides principles that leaders can use to empower, energize, and inspire themselves in order to do the same for those they lead.

Matt uses his experience of running a marathon as a metaphor to share leadership strategies learned through personal experiences and graduate work in Transformational Leadership

Key “take-aways” for the Presentation:

Þ The four characteristics that REAL leaders practice

Þ How to have a greater influence and impact on those you lead

Þ Renewed passion for leading others

Þ The number quality of leadership
