You Can’t Lead From Behind – Leadership Lessons From Fire, Flood, Pestilence and War

For most people, leadership is not a natural talent – it is a learned art.

Leader, author, and speaker, Steve Armstrong reveals practical, hands-on leadership advice and skills learned as a soldier and humanitarian.

If we are looking for larger than life heroes, we misunderstand what leadership is. In my experience, ordinary people rise to the occasion in turbulent and trying circumstances.

Key lessons:

Leaders Are Made, Not Born

Leaders Manage Their Emotions

Leaders Respond Rather Than React

Leaders are Resilient people who can come from anywhere.

 Discover these learning outcomes:

How to ensure everyone knows how they fit into the mission

How to apply proven Project Management skills to the most complex situations

How to succeed by delegating responsibility with the requisite authority


Leadership In the #MeToo Era


As leaders, we are responsible for ensuring the safety and well being of our employees and those with whom we work. Yet the world is full of predators, bullies and harassers.

There are two interconnected reasons why you may never know what is going on:


The victims do not trust the ‘system’ to look after them; and

The chain of command was never held responsible and accountable for the actions of the perpetrator.

This session will give you what you need to build faith in the system so people will tell you and how to hold your leaders accountable for what is happening on their watch.


Personal Leadership through Moral Courage: 

Courage in leadership is doing what is Scan 141330001right, despite being afraid or risking negative repercussions.  Fear is the most common reason that people give when they avoid being courageous.  Think about how you feel when you watch a leader who demonstrates personal courage.  Most likely, you will trust that leader more.

Discover the learning outcomes that apply to Courageous Leadership Behaviours in every setting, such as:

Moral courage & humility;

Allowing alternative & opposing viewpoints; and,

Speaking up; and, Taking ownership

How your administration team are the unsung heroes

How to lead your people
