Today's leading organizations are becoming more passionate about having greater purpose. Today's generation of employees are demanding a balance in their lives where their own purpose integrates with that of their organization's . They want to make a difference to their families, to themselves, and ultimately to the world.

When employees believe in their organization’s purpose, they will be inspired. When they know their efforts also lead towards achieving their personal purpose, they will be both inspired and engaged.
As the CEO of a mid-sized consulting company, I worked with hundreds of organizations worldwide on their strategy and agile practices making them more productive.

As a psychologist, I worked with individuals/teams to find meaning and purpose in their lives.

As a magician, I entertained large and small audiences, leaving them with a sense of wonder.

As a speaker, I am engaging audiences in a customized method to integrate these disciplines into a set of tools and practices to effect change. I feel passionate, especially in the current climate, that we need to combine these principles.

"I organized a large safety event for the company I work for. Alan took the time to get to know our audience ahead of time and created a unique presentation based on his findings. We have a typically very quiet audience who were energetic and engaged for 2 straight hours. I cannot say enough about Alan and how well he performed for us. He was punctual and even did magic for us!! highly recommended! -satisfied customer "

"I highly recommend Alan, he is very talented and offers an incredible program for professionals. We recently hired him for our first ever Commissioners Retreat and it was both inspiring and informative. Everyone walked away with valuable insight and working techniques to improve overall productivity as a team. Alan’s program offers not only effective team building and leadership training but makes learning both fun and engaging. We will most definitely hire him again to do future retreats."

   Leah Taylor, Executive Director SSFHA

" Alan Leeds was great in meeting the expectations we had for our team. Roughly 160 of our staff crammed into our conference room to listen to Alan's presentation on "Lifting" your leadership with a theme towards success. We look forward to Alan returning and presenting to our team in the very near future." 

John E. - Rudolph and Sletten, Inc.

"Throughout the experience Alan was very professional... . He took the time to learn about our division and what we do as well as what we would like to learn. We chose the theme "Improving Attitudes for Successful Outcomes: how attitudes can improve both personal and professional achievement" in which he spoke on the "The Luck Factor and "The As-If Principle". He kept our staff engaged and entertained throughout the talk and included ways to earn points to get staff involved... . Our staff also enjoyed the close up magic while they ate lunch. We were all very happy-highly recommended."
