Hope Inspired Leadership

Be honest, which of your 2019 goals made you want to jump out of bed – run to work – and get started? What about your 2020 goals? Sadly, the goal setting process is often operationalized into a result that has the opposite intended effect – it becomes demotivating, mind numbing, and another to-do. Do event professionals really need another item of their to-do list?

Come learn about Hope Inspired Leadership. More than just a wish or optimism, hope is the leading predictor of satisfaction and happiness in life. A science backed by 2,000 research studies over 20 years, Hope Theory offers insight into the essential role Hope plays in organizational and personal effectiveness. Let’s investigate how leading with Hope and being a Hope Inspired Leader is contagious and can be capitalized upon to build enthusiastic and resilient organizations.



  1. Learn the foundation of Hope Theory and ways leaders are using it to lead change.
  2. Recognize that leading a hopeful culture requires specific leader activities and behaviors, as informed from neuroscience.
  3. Identify why most performance appraisal and performance review falls flat or even backfires.
  4. Distinguish how to measure Hope at an individual-level and organizational-level; and if you’re up for it, at a chapter or industry level!
