Developing Leaders and Bouncing Back
Keynote Speaker, Mentor, Trainer
What is Leadership?
How you define leadership sets the stage for who gets involved, how you work together, and what you accomplish. Break the unwritten rules and set the stage for an extraordinary year.
Having a Great Year
Do you know what a great year really looks like? Or how to get there? This is a focused, strategic-planning session during which participants design and then initiate activities that will launch them toward a great year.
Building Successful Teams
Build more effective teams by understanding the rules and breaking the ones that are holding you back. This session will help participants practice effective teamwork by applying the four foundations of teamwork to non-threatening situations where in order to succeed the group must work well together.
Putting the Bounce in Bounce-Back
Success in life isn’t dependent upon what does or doesn’t happen to you. Rather, it often hinges upon how you react to what happens to you. This session highlights individual and organizational strategies for “bouncing back” in the face of adversity. Six principles of attitude management and resiliency are explored using stories, games and activities.
As the director of the Danvers High School band for 33 years, Ron transformed the band program from a small community group of 30 students into a large, nationally recognized organization with over 150 members. They performed for a presidential inauguration, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade in 2001, 2006, and 2010, the 70th and 75th anniversaries commemorating the attacks on Pearl Harbor, and other prestigious events across the United States.
Ron earned his Master’s degree in education summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts – Lowell and holds two professional teaching licenses, one in Music and another as Supervisor/Director. He is an accomplished educator and a proven leader with contagious enthusiasm, a passion for driving growth, and a strong commitment to developing dynamic, service-based student leaders. He has dedicated his time to mentoring senior students to become trainers for underclassmen, preparing the next generation for leadership roles. His leadership and mentorship program has served as a model for other professional groups and organizations.
Ron is recognized by SBO magazine (School, Band, and Orchestra) as one of “The Top 50 Directors in the U.S.A.,” and by The Salem News as one of “The Top 100 Leaders Who Make a Difference in Essex County.”
