Mel Parker President and Chief Executive Officer, Take The Limits Off, LLC
In today's chaotic and turbulent times, Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity are the new normal for business. To survive and thrive in this new world, organizations require an increased focus on hiring, training and retaining the leadership talent best equipped to succeed. Along with scholarly research on leadership, The Parker Principles incorporates a unique leadership mosaic of personal experiences and learnings from a dynamic array of sources: West Point, U.S. Army Rangers, Combat and some of the best organizations in the corporate world.
The front wheel of a bicycle is responsible for direction and stability - traits that every great leader works to master. Mel Parker uses a bicycle as a metaphor for the difference in focus between raw power and nuanced direction. "Not a single time did I crash because of my back wheel. Every single time I crashed because I wasn't good enough, I didn't have the expertise with my front wheel."
Executive coach and keynote speaker Mel Parker discusses the super power that all leaders can develop and harness to improve their leadership skills, whether that's leading a team of 500 or a team of 1.
