Are you a catalyst? Someone with a deep drive to change the world for the better? Someone who sees possibilities and opportunities to improve things and an unstoppable determination to move those ideas into action? Catalysts often experience challenges as they try to bring others along on their journeys, for example resistance to change, even fear. In this talk Tracey Lovejoy will discuss the most common mistakes that catalytic leaders make as they move from building a vision to making that vision a reality. She will base her discussion in a common model of leadership—Vision, Alignment, Execution—and share how catalysts can better bring people along to ensure their vision is more fully manifested. If you catalyze within an organization or are enlisting others to build something new with you, this talk may provide valuable insight.
