DREW DUDLEY
Drew Dudley thinks we've made leadership into something bigger than us, something unattainable. An upbeat speaker, Dudley shares his “lollipop moments”—when something you've done has made someone else's life fundamentally better. Leadership, he explains, should be about how many lollipop moments you can acknowledge and share every day. 
 
Drew Dudley helps us understand leadership in a more nuanced, practical, and entirely hopeful way. We've made leadership into something bigger than us, Dudley says, something beyond us.  We've shrouded it in arrogance—turned it into something few of us will publicly admit to possessing. Leadership, he says, is now about changing the world and nothing less. As the founder and director of one of the largest leadership development programs in North America, he embraces the idea that leadership can't really be taught, only learned—an idea that has resonated with thousands of people over the years.
