What Surfing Taught Me About Leadership | Rick Hansen | TEDxRexburg

What keeps us engaged in the work we do and inspired and motivated by the leaders we follow? If you think it’s things like the incentive of rewards or the advancement of a career, you’re not alone – but, according to recent research that’s not the case. Unprecedented data shows that disengagement and indifference in the workplace around the world are at an all-time high, and the reason is that leaders don’t know how to inspire their teams to see and realize their potential. Rick spent 10 years as a teacher and professor and 20 years in executive leadership. Originally from Southern CA, he is an avid surfer focused on teaching leaders how to motivate and inspire the teams they lead. He is passionate about leadership and the positive impact leaders could and should have on people. With a diverse background domestically and globally, he understands how to move the business forward where motivation and inspiration become the competitive edge. Whether it’s the companies he’s owned or transformed, he uses surfing as a metaphor to inform how he leads his teams and organizations. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
