"The growth of a company is limited by the growth of its leaders." Get ready for an inspirational and content-rich event! Randy presents his material in a relatable, personable manner, and audiences feel as if they are having an intimate conversation with a wise and trusted friend, one who has been there and can help you by sharing his mistakes and successes.
Randy H. Nelson is an expert in taking entrepreneurial leaders on a self-awareness journey during his presentations, “comfortably” guiding them outside of their comfort zones for maximum take home value for each participant.
In every event, Randy will challenge his audience in the following three areas:
- To grow their leadership skills as fast as their company is growing
- To double their personal capacity every 2-3 years
- To grow their self-awareness. The fatal flaw of an entrepreneurial leader is their lack of self-awareness
