    AAOE Keynote Address: Leadership is a Privilege

    Presented by Jackie Freiberg, PhD

    AAOE Keynote speaker Jackie FribergIf we got rid of your title would people still follow you? Leadership is a choice, not a position. And leadership has the power to turn average into exceptional.

    Join speaker Jackie Freiberg as she unpacks the character strengths of gutsy leaders and shows you how these strengths play out in some of the world’s most admired companies.

    This presentation is about the kind of leadership that chooses service over self-interest and sees people’s talents as gifts to cultivate vs. assets to be managed. Leaders will be challenged to see themselves as stewards of people’s potential, with countless suggestions for inspiring people to show up to work every day fully awake, fully engaged and firing on all cylinders.

    Dr. Jackie Freiberg is an international best-selling business author, speaker and consultant. Her insights help ambitious leaders accelerate innovation by building companies that are hungry for change.

    Jackie is recognized as one of the Top 30 Minds on Leadership by Leadership Excellence Magazine and one of the most sought-after female business speakers in the nation. She also lives, writes, and speaks about the “SheEconomy,” a $20 trillion untapped market opportunity to court wisely.
