He works at all levels of the organization, specializing in leadership development (coaching, teaching, systems, & infrastructure) and organization development. Randy regularly consults with organizations in the areas of emotional intelligence, coaching, succession planning, and leading change. He is at his best when “playing in traffic,” a metaphor he uses to describe his teaching and consulting style. The core of his approach is mindfulness. Randy believes that a leader’s ability to slow the action and reflect on one’s internal landscape is the key to leading effectively in a world often characterized by uncertainty, volatility, ambiguity, and increasing complexity. Leaders in today’s world have to become comfortable in the paradox of “being still while in motion.” He recently served as Vice President, Leadership Development at a publically traded company, where he reported to the CEO and coached executives, created and managed succession planning programs, taught leaders, and worked with intact created and managed succession planning programs, taught leaders, and worked with intact teams to enhance performance. Randy currently serves on the faculty of the Georgetown University Leadership Coaching program in the Institute of Transformational Leadership. He has previously taught leadership and organizational development at both the undergraduate and graduate level at Georgetown University, among others.


1:30 - 2:00 pm Registration

2:00 - 5:00 pm The Inner Game of Leadership

We know that leadership effectiveness is largely dependent on the leader’s mindfulness, state of mind, and inner storytelling. In other words, a leader’s “inner game runs the outer game.” Tolstoy said it best – “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” Therefore, the most effective leaders have learned and understand that all change starts with the leader changing him or herself first. In this interactive workshop, USPAACC CEOs and corporate executives will:

  • explore the power of their personal stories,
  • examine the impact of leader intention,
  • consider their own internal landscape and
  • discover leadership growth options.

The coach will engage participants with interactive activities throughout the afternoon to ensure more lasting learning and change. The session will be a combination of group work and direct applications within the content during the afternoon with one break.

5:00 - 6:00 pm Networking Reception
