MAP is Monday Action Plan. Each week, I share a single action for you to use throughout the week. These actions will strengthen how you lead. Developing your leadership capabilities needs to be deliberate, and each MAP will move you in a positive direction. Over time, you experience a compound effect.

For your first MAP, Gary explains how you can prepare those you work with about your continuous transformation into effective leadership.

About me

I am a performance-based speaker — not a motivational speaker. I authored two books that explain how leadership is radically changing in the 21st Century.

At the University of North Carolina at Charlotte through the Department of Educational Leadership, I teach graduate students about leadership.

I consult and collaborate with business professionals to improve their people’s performance and develop the talent within their organizations.

These MAP episodes are released on multiple platforms.
