Title: "The Ordinary Leader"

Presenter: Randy Grieser

Cost: Free – Exclusive to BCCDA members

Credits towards annual CCDP maintenance: One and half for live participation, one for recording

About the session:

An ordinary leader is someone who leads a small organization or team that is doing great things. They manage the majority of the world’s workforce, but they don’t lead large corporations or big government agencies. Ordinary leaders are rarely written about in books or quoted in magazines. They are, however, important. Maybe not globally, but in their own realm of influence, their leadership makes a difference.

The term “ordinary” is also used to highlight the belief that no one ever arrives as a leader. In fact, if someone thinks of themselves as extraordinary, they will not be a very effective leader. Author Randy Grieser presents 10 key insights for building and leading a thriving organization. These are the principles he identifies as instrumental to success as a leader. Writing for leaders everywhere, he inspires, motivates, and explains how to make each insight a reality in your organization

About the presenter:

Randy Grieser is the founder and CEO of ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance and the Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute (CTRI). He is the author of The Ordinary Leader, and co-author of The Culture Question. Randy is a visionary leader who, together with a team of employees and trainers, has positioned these organizations to be two of the premier providers of professional development training in the industry.

He is passionate about sharing the importance of creating healthy workplace cultures, and believes leadership requires us to always be intentional about what we do and how we do it. Randy is a dynamic presenter who delivers insightful presentations that are engaging, humorous and informative.

Randy has a graduate degree in Social Work, and earlier in his career he worked as a Mental Health Counsellor. He is enthusiastic about life and has many interests. He and his son Ben have a shared passion for basketball. He and his wife Heidi have a shared passion for mountain biking. And with his daughter Ana, he shares a passion for climbing mountains and eating good cheese. You can usually find him involved in one of these activities in his spare time.
