Passionate Leadership - 2016

2-Day Workshop

The workshop presents a leadership model that fosters relationships that lead to enhanced performance. Dr Robert Norton takes participants on a journey of exploration. You are invited to make connections to your own lives, personally and professionally. In the process, you will discover what it takes to be a passionate leader.


In the workshop, Dr Norton presents a model for passionate leaders that consists of six tasks. The six tasks are like tumblers in a lock. Unless all six tumblers are aligned, the lock will not open. Unless all six tasks are in place, a person cannot passionately lead.



About Dr Robert Norton

“I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed having Robert speak at The CEO Institute. All the attendees were totally engaged with the passion of Roberts’s presentation – each of them left with an understanding that they needed to search for their quest!

Robert’s analogy of treating people like dogs I find truly encouraging in a time when the carrot & stick approach is still being used but with less and less effect.

Robert re-ignited my personal search for my quest!!!”

Nick Alford, Executive Chairman,

The CEO Institute, Brisbane, Australia

“Just wanted to say thank you for your presentation . . . . and your book. I have just finished reading it, and thoroughly enjoyed the story as well as the analogies. Insightful, inspiring and a good story to boot. Loved it. Well done!”

Alex Harris, Business Development Manager, Investor TV, Australia
