The Leadership Test: Six Questions That Transform People and Organizations

by Drew Dudley


“How many of you are completely  comfortable with calling yourself a leader?”

Leadership author and  educator Drew Dudley has asked that question to thousands of audiences around the world, and in fewer than  one percent of those audiences were the majority of people willing to call themselves leaders. In this engaging and empowering keynote, Mr. Dudley aims to demonstrate that there is a form of leadership that is driven by a daily commitment to acting on six  key leadership values: impact, courage, growth, empowerment, class, and  self-respect. Sharing stories from small town Canada to the deserts of Qatar, and insights from leaders of all types, this presentation will change the way participants think about leadership in their lives and workplaces.

Drew Dudley is the Founder and Chief Catalyst of Day One Leadership, Inc., which helps organizations around the world increase their leadership capacity. Mr. Dudley has been featured on The Huffington Post, Radio America, Forbes. com, and TED.com, where his “TED talk” has been voted “one of the 15 most inspirational TED talks of all time.” TIME, Business Insider, and Inc. magazines have all named his talk as one of their “10 speeches that will make you a better leader.” Mr. Dudley’s first book, “This is Day One: A Practical Guide to Leadership That Matters” debuted at  #6 on The Wall Street Journal Bestseller List and has gone on to become an international bestseller.
