“The Ultimate Obstacle to Leadership”
Our greatest potential in heightening our performance and effectiveness lies not in what we know we should do better, but in discovering why we are not already doing it. Identify and overcome the unconscious barriers that get in your way of rising to your full potential. This inspiring and interactive talk combines personal stories of insight with cognitive science and and real world experience.
“Eliminating Us vs. Them Dynamics”
Drawing from his work in the book, “Developing Talent for Organizational Results,” Shayne explores the most disruptive cultural tendency in large organizations today: the silos and in-fighting that undermine collaboration and contribute to workplace stress. The unique insight of LaL’s methodology reveals why employees in the public and private sector are chronically drawn into anti-collaborative behaviors despite their best intentions. Learn why Us vs. Them Dynamics happen and how to eliminate them. Yes, it is possible!
“When the Running Began”
Based on his 2015 memoir, Shayne shares how he fell into the abyss of drugs, alcohol and nihilistic recklessness — and the hard-won insights and life changes he gained through the work of Learning as Leadership.
Through humorous and poignant stories, he describes how the pains of our past become infused with the coping strategies of our ego, and what it takes to grow into the person we aspire to be.

Shayne’s speech supported our vision for culture change around openness to learning. His talk elicited a very passionate response; some said it was at the most insightful, inspiring speech on leadership they’ve ever heard. It got people thinking about how their own ego and fears drive negative leadership behavior, and helped move our team to really probe, listen and learn from customer and each other.
