On Deck...My Ship In Leadership

Presenter Russ Salzman, a Lake Michigan yachtsman and career CEO, will share a fascinating look at business leadership through the eyes of a captain and sailboat racer. Bring members of your work teams and discover a refreshed look and nomenclature for your teams. You’ll find that you'll never look at a harbor of sailboats the same again!


ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Using three arenas of sailboat racing--Information; Mechanics; and Speed—he blends his vocation and avocations as an analogy for each of us in our business roles. Russ will challenge the participants to look through that lens focusing on Direction; Operations; and Efficiencies in a most interesting fashion.

His presentation will provide an opportunity to 'dial in' actions and tactics as racers in business and life. Incorporating humor, videos, provoking thoughts, and a personal worksheet, attendees will leave with a motivation to refresh their course heading, anticipate the next wind shift and adjust your sails.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Russ Salzman has been a prominent civic leader in Chicago as the President and CEO of The Magnificent Mile Association during the development boom years of 1990-2004. He then began a 12 year run as the CEO of a leading real estate society, the Institute of Real Estate Management’s (IREM) international headquarters in Chicago, and launched his consulting practice, Sea Level Solutions, LLC in 2017.

He holds three professional designations in nonprofit leadership including the Certified Association Executive (CAE) issued by the American Society of Association Executives. He is an instructor and facilitator for the U S Chamber of Commerce's Institute for Organization Management as well as countless other workshops, lectures and convention seminars focused on leadership, strategy, talent management, and self-awareness. He also holds a U S Coast Guard Commercial Captain's License first issued in 1985 and is a racing instructor and charter captain for Pinnacle Yachts in Chicago.
