Leading Change: A Navy SEAL's Principles for Navigating Organizational Change. In today's more volatile, unpredictable and complex business environments businesses can find themselves in almost constant states of change. But more change initiatives fall short or fail due to a lack of leadership alignment, the proper culture founded on accountability and trust and poor discipline. In this presentation Gleeson provides actionable principles for managers to use in leading an organization through change.

Prioritizing People Culture and Values to Achieve Results. People, culture and values often have a reputation for being a "soft" element of management's priorities and not directly tied to improving profitability. Yet, many studies show that leading with culture makes an organization stronger, more resilient and much more profitable. Gleeson shares correlations between SEAL culture and high performance teams in business and how prioritizing people, culture and values drives a company to achieve better results.

Building High-trust Organizations that Achieve Winning Results. Productivity, income and profits of any organization can be directly negatively or positively impacted depending on the levels of trust within the team. Trust is one of the most critical elements of a strong team culture that gets results and successfully navigates change. In this presentation, Gleeson shares the seven principles for building high-trust organizations: Integrity of Leadership, Investing in Respect, Empowering Everyone, Accountability for All, Creating a Winning Vision, Keeping the Team Informed, and Embracing Sacrifice.
