Organizations often struggle as a result of lack of direction, ineffective recruitment strategies and lost leaders. Rick challenges members of organizations to step up and drive their organizations to greatness, keeping in mind the question: What will I think of my organization in ten years? Through customizing their values to the current state of their organization and writing their own personal mission statement, Rick nudges organization leaders to emerge and take power within their campus group. Some harsh truths are presented—members lobbying for change can’t always be the good guys and a lack of follow-through will not yield any results—and Rick leaves leaders with the challenge of putting their devotion to work. A great option for an officer leadership day, Greek Week or any event looking for powerful, practical tactics to empower campus organizations.

Make room for the elephant: Embracing the power of diversity in our communities

The campus climate is changing constantly and before you know it, you may be sitting next to someone in your organization that is different than you. Sure, you may share the same organizational vision but what about the same race, religion, or sexual orientation? Make Room for the Elephant encourages student leaders to embrace diversity through relationship building, mutual understanding, and positive interaction. A great keynote for any organization looking for powerful ways to address diversity.
