Robin Sharma on Speaking

Anyone can show leadership because it’s less about a title and more about a mindset and way of showing up.

SPEAKING.COM: What do you want people to learn/take away from your presentations?

SHARMA: Anyone can show leadership because it’s less about a title and more about a mindset and way of showing up.

SPEAKING.COM: What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How do you prepare for your speaking engagements?

SHARMA: I’ve been at this 20 years, with top-tier clients who have mission-critical events with ultra-high stakes. As a former lawyer, I bring serious rigor to my preparation. I speak to the client, get their intentions, study their briefs, understand their culture. I get at what they need me to do for the event to be a giant win.

In terms of preparation, I have a customization process that includes a conference call, a deep questionnaire, online study, reviewing of client documents like missions, values, KPI’s for the year, strategic briefs etc.

I’ve been blessed in this career as a keynoter. Sharing the stage in Bucharest with Richard Branson before 5000 people was fun.

SPEAKING.COM: Have you had any particularly memorable speaking engagements / unusual situations arise while on the road?

SHARMA: So many. I’ve been blessed in this career as a keynoter. Sharing the stage in Bucharest with Richard Branson before 5000 people was fun. Same with the events I did with President Clinton and Jack Welch.

I was in Washington at one event for a large audience when the fire alarm went off during my presentation. I kept going until the CEO said we really needed to leave the room.

SPEAKING.COM: What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?

SHARMA: Any audience. Seriously.

SPEAKING.COM: Which of your keynote speaking topics are your favorites and why?

SHARMA: I only do one topic: “Lead Without a Title: How World-Class Companies Win.” I don’t do sales, marketing, or innovation keynotes. Just one topic. Just one keynote. Just total focus. That’s my love and my specialty. Tons of great presenters for the other subjects.

SPEAKING.COM: What inspired you to start doing speaking engagements?

SHARMA: I used to be a litigator. I wrote a book called The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which sold 4+ million copies. That led to speaking requests around the world. Then, my book The Leader Who Had No Title came out, and it was a game-changer. We now decline 70% of speaking requests.

The goal for me always is to inspire and move people deeply into action, but with hard-hitting content.

SPEAKING.COM: How much do case studies, personal stories and/or humor factor into your keynote speech content?

SHARMA: I use a lot of empirical information, science on high-performance, stories and humor in my presentations. The goal for me always is to inspire and move people deeply into action, but with hard-hitting content. I’m not a motivational speaker. I’m a high-content presenter who happens to be able to galvanize and inspire at the highest level.

SPEAKING.COM: What are some of the successes you’ve helped clients achieve?

SHARMA: Tremendous profit growth, large increases in engagement, innovation bursts, far better performance and a culture where people stop being victims and start showing leadership–without a title. Exclusive Interview with Robin Sharma

    The Leader Who Had No Title: A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in Life

    Is it really possible for anyone to be a leader?
    Absolutely. The core message of “The Leader Who Had No Title” is that every single one of us has the opportunity to show leadership in our work and within our lives-every single day. This isn′t some motivational platitude. It′s a reality that i′ve helped everyday people in organizations like Microsoft, GE, FedEx, Yale University and IBM achieve. Because leadership isn′t really about the title on our business cards. Leadership is about the strngth of our influence, our willingness to innovate, the quality of our attitide and our commitment to excellence. This doesn′t mean that organizations should get rid of titles and structure. It simply means that leadership is a behavior-and anyone of us can show it.

    This is obviously a time of deep change. Does the “Lead Without a Title” philosophy you share in your new book speak to this?
    Yes. The #1 competitive advantage any organization has right now is growing the leadership potential of EVERY employee, at all levels. From the mailroom to the boardroom, the companies that will win in these highly uncertain times will be those that get people Leading Without a Title. To succeed in this economy, the best organizations will encourage their people to think, feel and behave like leaders, delivering wow results within their work.

    So the nature of leadership is changing?
    The old model of leadership is dead. Everyone′s now a part of the leadership team. And each of us has the responsibility of driving positive results andleading by example. It′s now Leadership 2.0. Everybody gets to show their leadership best when they walk in the front door every day. The Leader Who Had No Title shows you how.

    Is leadership something we only show at work then?
    Leading Without a Title is actually a way to express your absolute best at work as well as at home. While the book is definitely for people who want to fly in their careers and win at work, there are some key ideas in the book on personal leadership, getting to peak health, balancing work and family and having a lot more fun on the journey of life.

    Why this book and why now?
    Because we need real leaders. Companies that we used to believe in have gone bankrupt or been bailed out. Leaders we used to admire have lost face. We need to restore the leadership values that made us great. And it starts with every one of us leading ourselves. We all have that power. It′s time to reconnect with it.
