Ron Minatrea’s passion for empowering other leaders began during his own career as a Fortune 100 executive. For more than 30 years he worked in and across multiple disciplines. Leading domestic, international, and global operations, he was ultimately responsible for over $20 Billion dollars in annual shipments.

Experienced in building and growing new operations, he was also asked to lead in more challenging times of consolidation, outsourcing, downsizing, and migration to low-cost regions.

Over the years he developed a strong appreciation for the value and impact middle leaders at all levels have on an organization’s success. He became committed to engaging and equipping these key leaders. He also began to work with organizations to create environments where middle leaders, those that both lead and follow at the same time, are valued and can become successful – even when they don’t create the vision, define the goals, or set the strategies.

Today, Ron continues to equip and empower leaders as a speaker, consultant, and executive coach. He helps individuals lead with greater focus, effectiveness, and fulfillment; and helps organizations increase engagement, improve execution, and create healthier cultures.

Develop Sustainable Organizations

The unrelenting demand for short-term results, constantly shifting workplace dynamics, and a growing number of forces intent on disruption can overwhelm and distract leaders…keeping them from adequately anticipating and preparing for the future.

Great processes – even great people, alone – can’t guarantee survival.

In this keynote, Ron shares inspiring, yet actionable ideas to help leaders think differently about today – and tomorrow. This session focuses on creating leaders at all levels equipped to embrace and drive the change needed to secure a bright future for their organization.

  • Keeping your vision consistent, yet relevant and compelling over time
  • Building trust (internally & externally) in an environment you don’t control
  • Adapting to trends, but avoiding fads that fade – and knowing the difference
  • Communicating with clarity & confidence in uncertain times
  • Creating a culture that embraces & leads change rather than scrambling to survive it

The Future of High Performing Leaders

The very things that make certain leaders successful may limit their ability to grow or move to greater responsibilities. Their leadership style, processes, and habits may not translate well to the next level

In this, his latest keynote, Ron introduces the concept of a leadership dashboard that allows the audience to evaluate the scalability of their current leadership model. He goes on to provide a hand full of levers everyone can use to adjust their leadership style to operate at higher levels.

These clear, but simple changes allow them to go beyond the limitations of their personal bandwidth, multiplying their impact, capacity, and influence.

  • Make adjustments in your leadership style to enable growing responsibilities
  • Learn to navigate competing – even conflicting demands
  • Lead without lines in all your spheres of influence
  • Become the kind of leader that people want to follow

Trends for Building Strong Teams

A collection of individuals assigned to a common project does not make a team if each of the players continues to view their work through the lens of “what’s in this for me.” Their “me” is transformed into “we” when they form the bonds of mutual commitment, common objectives, and the shared identity of the team.

But often teams formed around a project, department, or functional lines maintain a “small we” mentality that creates an internal “us vs. them” division that can kill the overall organization’s effectiveness.

In this keynote, Ron explores where and how these divisions occur, and offers a series of practical steps individuals can take to break down these walls – and helps them understand the value to themselves, their organization, and those they serve by continually growing their “we!”

  • Break down the walls of “Us vs. Them”
  • Learn to commit to the company cause without compromising your personal ambitions
  • Identify the elements of a compelling cause
  • Build trust and loyalty in the workplace
