Great leaders inspire, excite, and empower those in their teams. These leaders help create a team that is more than the sum of it's parts; in short, a great leader can be a force multiplier for the team.
But what makes these force multipliers? Is it simply raw talent? Charisma? How are these leaders different from the bad leaders who become bottlenecks and roadblocks?
In this session, we explore the answer to that question and identify the skills and principles that create force multipliers. Put these skills into action and you can be one too!

His time is equally divided between performing around the world, jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, and building software that doesn't suck.
