Transformational Leadership: Six Creative Powers
Every person is a powerhouse of potential just waiting to be unlocked. Is your organization a place of realized potential, where people can be the best they can be?
The ability of an organization to thrive flows from its leaders. Leaders create the conditions for people to access their potential. Leaders are architects of culture.
To create the conditions that enable people to thrive, as a leader there’s nothing more powerful than the way you think, manage your feelings, and connect with your inner source of positive spirit. Mastering these abilities builds the foundation for a culture of realized potential.
Leaders who transform their own hearts and minds can then engage the hearts and minds of employees.
Leaders who work to understand the beliefs and assumptions that affect their thinking, and do so transparently, enable employees to think in positive, productive and creative ways. Leaders who courageously confront their limitations and cultivate hope create a culture of possibility and resilience.
These “Transformational Leaders” create the conditions for trust, creativity, innovation, collaboration, and change.
This presentation enables participants to access their deepest source of leadership strength through a unique blend of presentation, storytelling and magic effects. The magic provides powerful metaphors and introduces the Transformation Framework that enables leadership capabilities to emerge with greater ease and speed than other methods. The Framework demonstrates the interconnection between magic, leadership, and business performance.
Participants will learn…
- The critical need to cultivate hope and inspiration.
- The power of words and language.
- The importance of self-reflection.
- How unconscious beliefs and assumptions may be creating limitations.
- The importance of allies in developing our inner strength.
- The power of courage and authenticity
- How to develop leadership mastery.
Participants will leave the session with practical tools that can be integrated into daily life.
Alchemy is the process of taking basic raw materials and creating something of greater value. The process is both scientific and spiritual. In this presentation, Transformational Magician Andrew Bennett introduces an innovative framework combining science and spirit to teach leadership practices that enable followers to be engaged, committed, creative, positive forces in your organization.
Alchemy also involves “burning away impurities” so you will be examining the illusions that get in the way of accessing your greatest leadership strengths.
Bennett combines his experience as a corporate leader, entrepreneur, leadership and organization development coach and consultant with world-class magic to create a unique experience that opens people to new ways of thinking and acting.
Two overall key purposes of this presentation:
1. Transform your thinking to become a more powerful leader and create a more powerful organization.
- For decades we all have been admonished to “think outside the box,” but we’ve never been told how to do that. Simply telling us to think differently does not make it happen.
- In this presentation you will learn how to develop new ways of thinking and how to lead an organization that enables employees to access new ways of thinking.
2. Access the power of the spirit
- Clear away the limitations created by your ego and there is an essential “higher self” that has powerful wisdom and potential to create meaningful outcomes. This presentation will honor that inner greatness and discuss how we cultivate that essence in yourself as a leader, and in those who follow you.

- Reframing those limiting beliefs and assumptions.

LEADER AT VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY
“Mr. Bennett presents a positive reminder of the skill sets that can move the workplace environment to a more productive and satisfying experience. He integrated clever “magic” as a means of highlighting these practical strategies. This approach was coupled with a compelling relation of his personal life experiences to illustrate the application of these approaches. This was successful in prompting a personal review of one’s own environment and role.”
