The Responsibility of Leaders in Times of Uncertainty


There are certain moments in history that compel those in leadership to rise to another level.  In our present landscape . . . a global pandemic, racial unrest and political division combine to create such a moment.  And, if you’re a leader . . . it’s an opportunity of a lifetime!

It’s been said that great people do things others don’t.  And great leaders look for moments such as these . . . to do what others won’t.  Dr. Rick Rigsby argues that nothing—absolutely nothing—prepares one for leadership like a season of instability that produces an environment of uncertainty.

In a captivating and uplifting message, the acclaimed motivational speaker and  best-selling author offers a clear assessment of current affairs and a common-sense approach to meet the challenges of a critical season.  Join Dr. Rigsby and be inspired to become the leader you’ve always desired to be!
