Lorne Rubis speaking at a leadership event

People have a right to great leaders. And leaders have a responsibility to be great—not perfect. I’ve been many things in this lifetime – an entrepreneur; officer reporting directly to Chairman of a Fortune 50 company; COO of a publicly traded tech company; CEO of an international firm; Chief People Officer of a financial institution; and now, Chief Evangelist. In these roles, I have come to understand what great—but not perfect—leadership is.

I believe it’s important to stay current with the most advanced research and insights on leadership. But my greatest asset is that I’ve been there. I’ve been in the trenches learning from the heat of experience. When I share my leadership framework, it is soaked in the sweat of having done it. Every element I present is part of a connected system that helps leaders get results, and makes them magnets that attract the best people who want to work WITH and FOR them. The time to be great is now.
